We are using a template email Bob, but we can all reword it to our own tastes.

Can we have direct links to the companies concerned on here?


Look on other thread Bob, and Keggy or Rexn have listed them.

Thanks for the key support . The snowball is rolling, it's early days and there is bound to be some teething troubles but hopefully we can make the snowball into an avalanche and bury the fucker.

well my article before is with the Mike Ashley Out Campaign and it's been aired.

We're being retweeted to death. just got to be prepared to do this for the long haul and not just whilst the mood dictates it like the Hull game back in 2008.

Even a hammering of the mackems and an unlikely top 6 finish can't hide the facts. It's a fight to the death now.

I am in lads, will reword the email if required, a weekly prod for the next address would be good.

Does anybody have a contact at NCJMEDIA on this, do have a email address for the head of sports desk if required.

Plan on doing threads as a follow up . Showing responses and also next plan of attack . If you want to email the head of the sports desk giving him a general feel for the action without giving him the specifics that would be great (might be an idea to do that on Monday post the initial action). Get brainstorming lads it's all of ours baby. Anything that raises awareness and creates debate is now the goal . @TruthoftheTyne is the twitter which in time will help with coordinating things a little . Lets try and get as many on board as we can .

Not been on much lately as I am snowed at work, but this sounds like a plan to me. I have been willing some action from this board as there's a few brains on here allright. I am in.

One thing though, do Thomas Cook sell goods?

Strictly speaking no Manx... suppose when e-mailing thomas cook it would have to be along the lines of not booking travel packages. It's essentially the same thing as not buying a sports manufacturers gear though.

Players are not being brought in to try and win cup matches, qualify for Europe or even get us up the League.

They're only brought in to keep us in the golden goose league and to be sold on for a big profit if the opportunity arises.

I wouldn't have a hashtag with that in it mate.

I think using the word "rape" in any context other than the one that it is meant for is both insulting and trivialises the subject.

A massive no from me.

Rape is apt.

From the Oxford English dictionary.

Rape: the wanton destruction or spoiling of a place


Spot on in my opinion.

Go for it, but i wouldn't add it, and I'm pretty sure most females wouldn't.

Insensitive at best.

I would distance myself form anything associated with that hashtag.

I actually used it this afternoon and it got a few retweets. When I thought of it, it was meant as a pisstake of what Pardew said a while back but with an explanation of what Ashley is doing.

As they say though, exploitation works.

I can see the point of OL and his concern.times change and it kind of undermines anyone who has had to deal with rape as a victim or friend.

I agree and wont use it anymore.

Strange when it's usually me advising people to watch what they type.

whilst talking about the email campaign on the other TOTT, one of the lads commented that that email template didn't say enough....this was his version.......


Dear Sir/Madam
My name is (*) and I am a member of a Newcastle United Supporters Forum known as Talk Of The Tyne. Having strong links with a growing number of other NUFC forums, we can estimate that collectively our numbers exceed over 5000 members. We share a common belief that our wonderful city, with its heritage, beauty and passion, deserves to be represented by a Football Club that strives to be as ambitious as the people it serves.
It is noted that your company is in commercial partnership with Newcastle United, which is currently under the stewardship of Mr. Michael Ashley.
We wish it to be known that while your company remains in such liaison with Newcastle United, with Mr Ashley at the helm, we will refrain from using any of your services. Neither will we purchase any of your goods. We will actively seek to encourage others to do the same if your company continues with its commercial ties to Newcastle United.
We urge you to re-think your commercial partnership arrangements with Sports Direct/Mike Ashley. Good publicity is invaluable and the power of the word-of-mouth is widely known. Therefore we will endeavour, through the medium of the internet, to persuade as many of your potential customers/clients as possible to also withdraw their custom.
We would further state that we will seek to publicise any favourable stance you may choose to take, not only in the press but across the various fan forums.

We would welcome any response you care to make in respect of this request.

Yours sincerely

One thing that I forgot to mention, what about all of the companies LOCALLY that have boxes within the ground.

Does a list of these exist????

They are all probably local, and an easier target, as they are not corporate, and expect local people and companies to spend with them. Could we develop a "blacklist" as such????

Have you got the Chronicle/Journal on the list, surely start on the doorstep. have tried tweeting them, but they just ignore it. You would think they would back a campaign having been banned from SJP
