That's why certain club forums have vanished from the list above. Register to post is fine, but no time for those clubs that want to make it a private club. Once signed up for Heybridge's one and I still get emails assuming I'm a fan.

With the FootballExclusives lot I don't begrudge them their subscriptions for Dulwich/Hampton et all, but I fail to understand why their free stuff is behind a sign up page and not easily searchable (would be the best advertising they could get), why it's not categorised by club as well as league, nor why there isn't an option to pay say £2 for a single video... £5 a month is a bad deal if some months there's no content of any interest to you half the time.

Personally, my preferred model would be similar to yours: an official YouTube channel run by volunteers with pre/post roll ads to help cover costs/earn a few pennies for the club. No commentary, but a few overlays for teams, goalscorers etc. Most of us unfortunately (and understandably) don't have someone willing and able to regularly film and edit the videos. Ultimately I see it as advertising for clubs rather than a money stream, but I don't begrudge anyone without a volunteer working with FootballExclusives instead.

For me, you were a bit harsh on them, even though I don't like the business model that much, but John was equally harsh on you in response.

As an aside, does anyone have any idea who's responsible for the HendonFC TV channel that's appeared recently on YouTube? I can't find any contact details.
