Why is that? Seems to me that he is just appreciating the 50 supporters who were so intergral in us getting a vital win. They were essentially the 12th man that day.
I know your being sarcastic, but I am glad you asked OMA. Why should they get free travel? why are they any different to people who have season tickets or have had for years? Just feel it creates a divide amongst the fans and if I was a loyal fan who had been to every home and away game this season, to find out people had got free travel for moving there seats I would be pretty p!ssed off.
There's a couple of points to make here.
Moore is recognising the the positive organised effort of a small group of supporters who chose to to actively do something visible to help back the team.
Prior to their action the atmosphere was terrible. It was quiet, grumbly and sulky. Not surprising given how bad we were doing. And the change of manager was a far bigger catalyst in the return of a positive atmosphere than anything else, but they're the obvious visible proactive presence.
Moore wants to give something back specifically to them. Good for him.
Those people's good fortune in receiving a gift from Moore takes nothing away from anyone else. Their good fortune is not someone else's loss.
