Hi,

I’ve approved your post, but removed the survey, as there are a few yellow flags on the first page of it…

Could you please answer the following questions:

1. At which institution are you a student?
2. Why is that institution not named on the first page of the survey?
3. Has the institution that you are a student at actually approved the survey?
4. Why does the survey state that participants cannot withdraw their consent after submitting some answers? This is highly unusual.

Thanks.

If all is above board, it should be easy to address my concerns, and I’ll re-post the survey…

Hi,

Thank you I am at University of Sussex, I will add this to the survey immediately. Yes it has been approved to be posted to football forums online. The consent statement is supposed to mean once all answers have been submitted they cannot withdraw them, however while completing the survey it is completely up to you if you wish to stop and not submit any answers.

You aren’t allowed to stop participants from withdrawing their answers. If this was genuine, it’s never getting past ethics.

Sorry but I won't be completing it - when a football survey had phrases like "consumer perception" and "brand management" in it, I immediately turn off - just throw away marketing tosh ( and Mrs WS does actually work in marketing and agrees with me ). A vast majority of fans support a club not because of "consumer perception" or "brand management" - rather that it is the club nearest to where they grew up, that their family supports/supported or they are glory hunters ( see Man City fans ). The one question I will answer is this one :

What do you believe the club you support should invest more resources into? - HALF TIME STRIPPERS ( male, female and non-binary to make it fair )

I’m not exactly really sure where to start with this but I’ll start with the bolded text…..who said this? Certainly not the author of the survey.

Your wife works in marketing and agrees consumer perception and brand management is “throw away marketing tosh” Interesting, surely these ideas are the foundations of good marketing?

Didn’t understand the questions so gave up. Perhaps the OP should consider reviewing the questions and asking them in plain English.

After over 30 years in the industry she's beginning to see what a con marketing really is - as I've always said "marketing is just fluff". Here's a good example - Easyjet claiming their flights are carbon "neutral" ( other airlines claim the same ) - something you've claimed in the past to justify using their flights - hmmmm - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m001zd68/panorama-big-brands-green-claims-uncovered - marketing is just untruths designed to persuade people to buy a product or service they wouldn't buy if they knew the truth.
