OT Sean Fallon story;

Sean was sent by Bob Kelly to Falkirk to make an offer for Hughie Maxwell (around 1964).
The Falkirk board had met just before Sean arrived and decided to accept no less than Β£7000. Sean arrived and said “I am authorised by Mr Kelly to offer no more than Β£14000!”

Agape, the Falkirk chairman manged to stammer, “Oh dear – we will have to consider that. Would you mind waiting whilst we do?”

Whilst Sean was entertained by someone on the ground staff for an hour, the Falkirk board, unable to believe their good fortune, played a round of Brag before emerging to tell Sean, “Reluctantly we accept your offer!”

Wasn’t all bad for Sean though. Two years later he came away with Kenny Dalglish’s signature for a tenner πŸ™‚

Sweet, sweet man he was.

TSFM,

So, you are saying that you have clearly stated rules, and are applying them, without fear or favour ? And you expect this to be OK in Scotland ?

Good grief, what the hell are you thinking ?

We did explain that posts about this stuff were OT.
We did explain that any such posts would be removed.
We have also explained that criticism of the moderation policy should not be include in the current blog.
We have also explained that people who deliberately and repeatedly flout the policy of the site will have posting privileges removed.

In today’s circumstances therefore, I infer that either people cannot or will not abide by those very reasonable rules.

If, after explicit requests, posters decide to disrespect those rules, then I don’t see how they can complain when we take precisely the course of action we said we would.

If there are people who think that the moderation policy is an abuse of their human rights or whatever, then other blogs are available – and so too are other domain names.

There is no need for anyone to restate again, for the umpteenth time, what their opinion is on the provenance of Charles Green’s Rangers. If I were a Rangers fan, I would perhaps take some succour from this – perhaps conclude that people were protesting too much.

This site is without doubt turning into an anti-Rangers message board. There are tons of those out there. We don’t want this to be one of them.

I am no lover of Rangers, but I do value intellect, and it is being choked to death on this topic.

We are happy to entertain and in fact encourage discussion on the paradox of New Club / Old Club, but we need to take it as read that some people insist its new, some people insist its not, and others like myself couldn’t care less.

We agree to disagree and move on – or we just move on.

We have undoubtedly lost posters on here of late. The site has never been as popular as RTC, but without the promise of a sacrificial Rangers, we never doubted that it would be.

If a smaller leaner, TSFM emerges from this then that’s not a bad thing.

Rangers were not the lender. The Sub-Trusts, into which Rangers made a contribution via an EBT, are the β€œlender”. Rangers gave the money away and there can be no suggestion of repayment to them.
__________________________________________________________________

Yes, but had the loans been repaid by the lendees, Rangers would have been able to apply for one themselves had they set up a sub-trust in their favour. Therefore the money would have been available to the club in times of hardship.

Or perhaps I am missing something here?

Res 12 is as you say important, but I am convinced that Celtic have no desire whatsoever to pursue its aims.
We could have a discussion about the possible reasons, but ultimately if DD is disinclined to seek a proper answer to these questions, then the SFA will dodge the bullet.
Thus my question to Campbellsmoney: do individual (or groups of) shareholders have locus to seek legal redress here?
Going at it in that fashion may even force Celtic and other clubs for that matter to come on board.

Is there anyone outside of the clubs who may have locus to challenge LNS? Is there any basis for a challenge?

I don’t know is the answer, but I doubt it. You see its not a question of law really. Its not a proper court – its a made up thing by a private body.
_________________________________________________________________

I meant a challenge in law. For example, is there a framework whereby a shareholder(s) of a club(s) could challenge the outcome?

It does seem rather odd that, if a most people here believe, RFC achieved honours dishonestly and in doing so denied other clubs prize-money and opportunity that those clubs are reluctant to seek redress.

My guess I that the must have something to lose by bringing that up – but what?

Is there a mechanism through which the SFA/SPL could be sued by individual shareholders for loss of earnings caused by a lack of proper regulation by the governing bodies.
