Hope this isn’t the next step, think we as fans need to step up, we don’t deserve this - 40 years of crap ownership.
Sorry but that's nonsense.One of the tenures in Company law, is that the directors ensure that the club is run in a way that it benefits the community, which they are falling to do, there is a possibility that legal action could be brought against the club directors barring them from running the club, question is what happens next?
Really? Can provide a link or source of this legislation.One of the tenures in Company law, is that the directors ensure that the club is run in a way that it benefits the community, which they are falling to do, there is a possibility that legal action could be brought against the club directors barring them from running the club, question is what happens next?
Yeah, I'm interested in this too. I'm a director of my own company, albeit not as large as OUFC, but all I know about director responsibilities is from this guide: https://www.gov.uk/running-a-limited-companyReally? Can provide a link or source of this legislation.
It doesn't really make any sense. How could you even measure whether a company is "benefiting" the community and legislation against a company not doing that doesn't seem plausible.Here it is: Not sure how it's relevant to OUFC directors?:
https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/46/section/172 - Companies Act 2006, section 172
A director of a company must act in the way he considers, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole, and in doing so have regard (amongst other matters) to—
1(d): the impact of the company's operations on the community and the environment
I don't think that means it has to benefit the community at all, just be mindful of the impact on the community?
My thoughts exactly. Tiger is benefiting the community by giving us something to do everyday i.e. moaning about what he's not telling us. If he was open and honest with us what'd we do with ourselves all day?Well it doesn't say it has to benefit the community, just that it has to 'have regard' for the community and environment. In other words, it means nothing that isn't covered in law (excessive noise, pollution, nuisance etc) - just 'don't be a pillock'. Which the directors of some companies I have worked for would actually find more than a bit taxing...
The idea of somehow using this to force the owner/directors of OUFC to do anything is 'optimistic' to say the least.
