>
>

>

Why, Isn't the online side of things getting much support?

I know speaking for myself it is tough with buying Merchandise. You want to buy stuff from the discovery centre to support them, buy stuff directly from the teams to support them, and now from our clubs in an effort to support ourselves, plus we give ourselves discounts for being good boys and girls.

BTW How is the wall paper idea going?

I don't think I have 10 friends who I can send this to... :oo1: (who are Ford fans anyway)

But the 5% thing is a good idea. Viral marketing can have some easy payoffs if it is done right.

Is it too late to submit pictures for this fans wallpaper?
