I'm looking forward to hearing about the first person banned from the club under these new guidelines

And if its remit is beyond official channels - there's a free speech issue...

Fair enough I suppose for the club to enforce whatever rules they like on their social media "channels", but I do note that the guidelines are wide enough to allow the club to suppress/ censor pretty much anything other than the blandest of the bland postings. Since I never really look at club social media and I can't imagine myself ever posting there it has no impact on me, but it is interesting just to show how the internet has gone from free speech to the pervasive censorship and a "you can't say that even if it is true" approach in a very short span

I guess this place falls outside the social media guidelines as it is not an official channel. However I see that they did not include sexually explicit content which seems like a bit of an oversight from the working group. Or they’re all bloody perverts.

Happy if we are called just "wimbledon" without the need to mention AFC.,bit like everyone calls Bournemouth ,not AFC Bournemouth! Be nice of MK to drop the Dons, but I'm not going to get my knickers in a twist over them becoming a city, people really have too much time on their hands 😂

Shame Exeter, Bristol Rovers and FGR all got promoted - all easy to get to down the M4/5. But we have got Sutton and Orient to look forward to.

I am in the drop the Dons camp. It’s the first thing any PR consultancy would tell them. Either they do it themselves or Red Bull buy them.

All very true Lurker but then the FA lost any credibility they had to judge such matters around 2 decades ago

What do you expect from a donkey but a kick?
shane hence my moral - wouldn't bother the FA if that lot decided to name change but I guarantee if we pointed out 20 years is enough to just be Wimbledon they'd have a massive toddler tantrum about it.

SwinDon and Northampton for me are 2 places I have no intention of going near by choice. And SwinDon is a horrible chav town. It was actually ranked on a par with Croydon and Sutton for chav towns on that site some years back - and rightly so.

Lurker—perhaps the FA will appoint a 3-man commission to decide if the Franchise can rename again to MK City'?

[89.lo.gg.ed] 
Although you're right—MK Cunts does have a certain ring to it—pun intended!
Lurker - I suspect that could be easily overcome by chucking them a few quid to change their name if Winkelman really wanted to. Tbh I don't really care either way. I've always thought MK Dons is a genuinely crap name that makes them sound the plastic newbie entity they are as well as serving as a continual reminder they nicked someone else's club.

Won't change my opinion of them by even a fraction if they drop the Dons

No offence meant but glad to be losing Mansfield or Port Vale rather than relatively local games like SwinDon and Northampton

shane FA rules (if consistent) would block MK City or Milton Keynes City because of the existing club (that was too much like hard work for their fans to get behind and turn into a league club). You can't have 2 teams with the same or potentially easily confused names.

Although that could also have been fuckwittery as part of the overall attempt to stop us forming in the first place that won't get applied to their bastard creation and it's slimey owner
Lurker/Trigger - of course that all goes without saying. And I was wrong to use the word 'decency' in my previous post as that clearly has nothing to do with it or them. But Winkelman is the consummate opportunist and I can see him recognising this as the perfect opportunity to gain some free coverage - "...reflecting this exciting new era in Milton Keynes history..." etc whilst flogging their 'fans' loads of rebranded crap. He's owned the domain name to Milton Keynes City for years and has likely been waiting for the day when they gain city status so he can rebrand them with limited backlash from the few dozen of their 'fans' who would actually give a fuck.

they won't be able to change to MK City because these guys decided to continue the club that already existed rather than bandwagon on club stealing scummery [Link]
