‘Principles are principles’ – Grimsby Town fans split on MK Dons boycott

A decade or so later, MK Dons are still splitting the football world. Some see them as no more than a franchise, a side that should always been hated for how they came about.

Others think it is time to move on, to forgive and forget. Some clubs talk of boycott, that all-too familiar word that is now associated with the Checktrade Trophy, big business in football and everyone’s favourite enemy, Milton Keynes.

Maybe things wouldn’t be quite as severe if they dropped the Dons bit, given that they’re now a level below Wimbledon. AFC have shown that you can start at the bottom and work your way up, whereas MK have stagnated, despite the clear hunger for football in the city.

Mind you, there didn’t seem to be that much of a hunger when Milton Keynes City folded in 2003, due to a lack of interest in the town.

Whichever side of the debate you sit upon, it seems some Grimsby Town fans are adamant they’re not going to the game. Others think it is time to move on, with one speculating the club look set to lose £110 or more if the five who say they’re not going, don’t.

Football eh?
