RAWA - the voice of the people

I was on board with this when it started last year and thought it could only be a good thing. Listening to the supporters and putting all valid concerns and points of view towards the club management in structured dialogue. This seemed to be going well from both sides until the last meeting with CM when SD had to step in and re-take the meeting (only what im reading from here)

Anyways my problem now is that RAWA seem to NOT be taking all questions and concerns on board and having structured dialogue with the club and deciding (along with all the other fanzines and supporter groups) that without consultation they have decided that ALL Sunderland supporters want SD to leave the club. I am a member of the RAWA and was not consulted about this hence this is not right and proper in my eyes of 'a voice of the supporters'. On the flipside I think its quite pathetic that SD has decided to sell up because of a faceless twitter campaign but RAWA and the others have not acted in the correct manner to start this off.....on behalf of whom??

I would like some feedback from RAWA from this @Ghandi Floss because I believe you are the spokesman on here so why was a poll or the like not put out for supporter feedback?

Agree with the above. It seemed to come from nowhere and I couldn't understand the rush to push it through without consulting the members and just before the transfer deadline.
I wonder if any of the RAWA officials are considering resigning because of the poor decisions.

Let's face facts mate SD was always going to sell, so don't fool yourself to think otherwise.

tbh I’m glad someone took a stand. You can never represent the views of absolutely everyone, how could you? I voted labour yet the tories still got in and my voice wasn’t heard. Nice to see these groups having the balls to raise concerns in a way in which they would be heard. Whether I agree with it or not, they were effective.

I can understand why they did what they done.

A few wins and fans' memories are already going :lol: the upturn is fantastic and long may it continue, but our recent poor run and this seasom up until three games ago was a disaster.
Mad, isn't it? After a few wins the easily pleased have done an about face. Goes without saying, Donald is in over his head and needs to go for the betterment of the football club.
 
Agree, seemed a strange decision at a strange time, especially looking at it now.
It could be that they know things we don’t, Gareth from WMS has intimated that on here, so it might be that’s the reason.

They posted a tweet. The thousands and thousands of other people retweeted it and posted the hashtag and got it trending are what got it noticed. that was your poll. Had no one agreed it wouldn’t have been noticed.

Regardless of how you feel personally they clearly captured the views of the majority.
