I regularly sit near/ beside her at away games in the away season ticket section. I think of her as a pal now. I wish I had been there when she was given abuse.
I doubt that it was one incident M. I know that she had been getting a hard time online by one of our more prominent village idiots but thought that it had stopped.

Perhaps said idiot will be getting a wee knock from the polis shortly.

Sorry to hear that someone trying their best for the fans is getting abuse. I'm not a big fan of social media but acknowledge some of its positives. When things get tough as it has been the last wee while we should all rally round each other and persevere, even if it takes over a hundred year. Enjoy the peace young lady and thanks for your hard work.

Let's be absolutely clear here. The club is not to blame in any way for the online bullying and intimidation of women by unhinged inadequates - they manage that all by themselves.
I’m not saying the club are to blame, I’m saying they don’t make the position an easy one for those that do it. Let’s not make this gender related either. Frank took his fair share of abuse too.

A hard job and one that she and Power have been doing greatly under hard times, they do it for the love of the club and trying to make communication between the club and supporters better, I hope whoever forced Tracey to resign is given a slap and banned from ER, obviously someone who lives a real sad life, all the best to Tracey.

The same reason was given for the ending of the loyalty points scheme, that is Hibs fans giving the ticket office and other staff abuse.

Despite the low numbers apparently there were still arseholes at Hampden, not the first time, and the build up.

I'm sure most of us would be happy to see the back of them but what can we do?I

BIg/wee Ron wants to improve the match day experience. Maybe finding a way of excluding those that fuck it up for everyone else, staff and supporters, would be a challenge beyond

Twitter is veritable cess pit on the internet.

It gets better when you block the follow follow mentalists.
Aye twitter is absolutely horrendous for Hibs chat, some total nuggets out there

Has Kieran been getting similar treatment or do they just pick on women?

I disagree totally. It is much easier for the inadequates to bully and intimidate Tracey rather than Frank/Kieran as it takes less bravery to target a woman.

Other than tone or selective language I’ve had nowhere near the direct and specific abuse Tracey has received in the last 2 years.

There’s a line on where not to cross - I think we all ken it - constructive criticism and airing frustrations falls on the right side of line though and fine in my books (ultimately they will shape progression).

By direct and specific, do you mean actually to her face ? and from the same people? Obviously if its thru social media, its easy to see who it was.... (why no' name and shame them?)... and I'd presume if it was to her face, has it happened in front of you?

Its ridiculous way for grown men to act. They should be fucking ashamed! *shakes heid*

Would it be a good idea if a message was sent from the Bounce?

How does that get done

It seems like a thankless task, feel bad for the lassie. These folk need to understand that you can't just go spraffing everything that's said in a board meeting, you'd end up in the courts of you did. Shite like this will put off other fans from getting involved too 😕

I would be surprised if there wasn't the option to co-opt a replacement fans rep. It would make sense to approach the runner up rather than the rigmarole of another election at this time (when we're all quite busy with other stuff and elections!!)

I always thought Frank got mair than Tracy but I could be wrong and Kieran has been spot on since he was elected, Tracy done her best and franks biggest problem was lack of communication but they were all working g wi' one hand tied behind their backs. While it's fair to criticise, I know I have, personal abuse should never be acceptable. It's a thankless position
