I received an email this morning which included the latest survey from the Newcastle United Supporters Trust.
And I filled it out like a loyal Newcastle supporter, but then went to fill it out again, and found what I had half expected.
The survey is already flawed, because any one person can fill out the survey as many times as they want.
So it will be interesting to see what results the NUST come up with this time – but they will mean absolutely nothing until they allow only one vote from each fan.
The NUST had a poll earlier in the year, and their results were just not believable – and of course they were not.
So we would ask why the NUST does not send out surveys and polls that allow each supporter to have just one vote.
Technology is available to do that – and that’s what our polls always do – so we get a valid view of that the fans really think.
As it stands with the NUST survey, any one person with a strong view, can fill out the form as many times as they want and skew the results
That doesn’t seem right somehow, and certainly doesn’t get a valid view of what the Newcastle fans think.
