    I have been told by a few people that they don't believe I am out of line in doing this. So therefore lets hope this gets through to people. Quite simply if you are considering wanting tickets, make sure you open a paypal account and can send me the money straight away or by the date that I give. Also, respond to my PM's - let me know if plans change.

    This is the latest PM that I have sent to Jim (Gunners11).

    Jim: I will come to Bradley and find you if Rick stops getting tickets because you (and others) don't pay up.

    Just kidding :) but seriously. Pay the man.

    I am sure you are a lovely fellow Jim but I will be seriously pissed if you don't pay Rick! :mad: Come on and do the right thing here-regardless of whether you can go on your trip or not you made a commitment to Rick so please pay him!

    Those of us who marched on White Hart Lane en masse early this year saw first hand the military like planning Rick goes through each and every week to hook people up.

    I personally owe him a great deal. I have seen more games in our final year at Highbury than I ever thought possible thanks to the efforts of this man. And lets not forget Rick is not Arsenal FC Ltd. He is just a guy doing like minded fans a rather substantial favour.

    I find it totally reprehensible that someone would stitch him up, especially one who has been around these boards for any length of time. Not only is that individual messing with their own chances of future fixtures, but all of ours as well.

    Sort it out.

    This is absolutley ridiculous. If you commit to Rick that you are coming over you need to pay up. Rick has to pay for those tickets somewhere around 10 weeks before the match. If you aren't willing to commit to paying, then don't ask for tickets.

    Rick has put a load of time and effort into doing this for all of us. I have told him several times that he needs to step back and see if it's really worth it. What does he get out of all of this? Nothing. Maybe a pint or two if he's lucky. There are several who are complaining about an extra 1 Pound fee, that BS. You're paying loads of money to come over and to stay somewhere, don't bitch about a few pounds here or there in handling fees.

    Don't be suprised if Rick walks away from this next year. He's done more than he certainly needs to.

    Those coming over for a match. The first thing you need to do after he hands you the tickets is buy him a pint. Then a pack of chips - wait crisps :)

    Seriously - show your appreciation for all that he's done. A case of PBR or a nice $25 - $35 bottle of red wine would be even better. You don't have to do it, but you really should.

    That is soooo damn ridiculous! :mad:

    Think of it this way people. If someone you had talked to only over the internet asked you to fork over $200 with a promise to pay you back, would you do it? Most likely not, but Rick has. It is incredible what he does and has done for many of us. I'm astounded that he continues to help people, but he is a very nice person and more lenient than I am.

    As others have said, if you have gone through the trouble of booking airfare, hotels, travel, etc. Add Rick to your list of important things to take care of. Hotels will be there next year, Rick may not.

    I know I am guilty of late payment- but I think we need to start paying maybe 75-100% up front with the original request. That way Rick isn't as much in his own pockets.
    And yes, Rick will have several pints in his hands as soon as I see him.

    That seems like the best solution. Rick should have the money in hand before any request for tickets is made. If you don't end up getting tickets you get the cash (minus whatever fees) back. The cash you'd lose is a small price to pay. Nobody gets hurts and Rick isn't forced to chase people down. Shame that somebody doing us all a favor gets treated poorly.

    I'm surprised Rick doesn't black out/get alcohol poisoning when the ArseAm roadtrip comes around.

    Just got back from England and paid face value for the best seats I've ever had in the stadium, thanks to Ricks help. I actually tried to give him a few pounds extra just as a thank you, but he refused it and said "No worries...it's my pleasure to set you guys up with tickets."

    PAY THE MAN!!!!!!

    It's not that hard. You're an adult. If you're able to request tickets in the first place, you should be able to pay the cash.

    Pretty weak. Even if you can't go...still pay Rick. You might be out $50-100 but that's the mature, moral thing to do.

    Are you saying one should be paid in a timely manner? ;) Just messing with you.

    Hey thanks for that again, I've got part of it on today since I'm packing.

    Yeah, its prett sweet. Of course I'm going to have to make a trip down to the Bridge in another week and a half for him, but its a small price to pay...I just won't touch anything with my bare hands...gloves on at all times.
