I'm beginning to think there's something wrong with you. Do you overreact to everything like this in real life?

How on Earth were CX+ supposed to know whether or not Fyffes were going to continue their sponsorship of Dundalk? Dundalk buy and sell the stuff, not them. And every club on the planet sells off old stock at reduced prices, even if sponsors change. If you bought it and don't want it return it; if you want to keep it get the voucher. "Oh no my ugly af shirt released 12 months ago is now out of date because the big blue logo on the front won't be there next season. This is a DISGRACE."

Give me strength...

If your world is the real world fella I'll stay in mine. The perma-outrage seems stressful.

I’m sorry you feel that way. I respect thoughtful opinions and enjoy reading them, but not the ‘everything is a disgrace’ brigade and the people who are only interested in conspiracy theories about the club. People can post what they like but if that’s all they have to offer they can expect a response. Sorry if the people you know are intimidated by that.

I'm confused here. There is an accusation that CX+ Sport were trying to offload old stock, when the sale has actually been on in the club shop in Oriel. It's quite likely that the last order to the club was a bit on the high side - especially the away jersey which was discounted by €10 in recent weeks. If the club knew there was a change in the offing, why not discount them even more - like now - in order to clear the stock?

We will never know the full story, but it seems a bit odd that, if the club had notice that this was coming, why have they no-one else lined up? At the very least there would have been whispers around the town that the club were looking for a main sponsor.

The accusation appears to be that two named individuals in DFC and CX conspired to defraud fans in full knowledge of the ending of Fyffes sponsorship.

But taking exception to what looks like borderline slander is bullying, apparently.

This is what's known as fake news. You make up a story to suit some bias or to get attention. Why would a huge multi national like Fyffes be discussing their plans with CX. This seems to have come as a surprise to everyone and if CX knew in advance why would they produce so many jerseys when sales would fall and the jerseys would be returned by the club back to CX who would suffer the loss. But you - with no proof whatsoever try and blacken the name of 2 people safe in the anonymity of this forum. If you're so sure about it publish your own name. But keyboard warriors don't do that.

I get the feeling the club were not expecting to lose to the sponsorship deal. For it to happen just before the xmas shop opening seems a bit strange
