    my personal opinion is that its not fair..:eek:

    ive seen numerous occasions where a certain sponsor dibs all stock on certain sales removing the chance for newbies and guys that cant always afford lfs prices a chance to get a bargain.

    This purchases is done for resale purposes:whistling:

    I would love to hear others opinions and please guys i mean this in no bad way,so dont derail this thread,just state your opinions concerning sponsors rights to purchase from for sale section(for re-sale purposes) and this is not aimed in general as im sure most will know who the party concerned is.

    thanks

    Free market, capitalism.., have never and will never get this dibs thing.
    If i wanna shut down my system, or sell frags, or get rid of unwanted equipment or a rogue fish..., whoever puts down the money first, and is capable of caring for said stock....
    Although I would prefer to not sell to lfs, purely as end user and their ability to care for stock is an unknown, but considering the amount of people who dibs, will be there, coming to collect and simply don't pitch.... An lfs takes it all, pays, dine deal...

    I started exactly the same thread few weeks ago.. and was quickly shut down and the thread was closed and even tho there were people who agreed with what I was suggesting. their agrees were even deleted by the mods.. but that's normal because the sponsors are the ones paying the bills to run this site. you are waisting your time and nothing with come from this as most members even tho might agree with your suggestion will be too scared to express their opinion . my 2 cents

    I'm going to say this once.

    Sponsors had the right to purchase like anyone else, they are members after all.

    If you feel they are doing you guys in, Report the post and we will look at it.

    If you do not know how to report a post have a look here.

    We wont look at it unless you report it.

    Thread closed as nothing else of value can be said here.
