Ryan, the OCNC debate imo will never have a satisfactory conclusion. However, given enough time maybe enough people can accept our new terms of reference that we can all move beyond that debate and focus on the larger issue; namely the many failures of the SFA.
Wishful thinking? Possibly, but I know that TRFC fans have no love for the SFA (probably for different reasons than everyone else mind). I think this is the area where common ground can be sought, as fans of all clubs have been shafted by them, including rangers.

Ryan, I am comfortable enough referring to rangers without inverted commas, but only when referring to the pre 2012 model. The various distinctions you mention are(for me anyway) a way of ensuring we don’t get sucked into propagating the big lie, and I’m pretty sure you understand that.
You make the point that it is up to TRFC fans how they view their club, and I agree with that. However, it is up to the rest of us to decide how we view your club. I don’t expect TRFC fans to share my viewpoint, and equally I would expect TRFC fans to understand that very few fans in Scotland share their viewpoint.
It may come across as petty or sad, but imo these distinctions are important as a constant reminder that people won’t be sucked into the big lie, we won’t just roll over while the SMSM tickles our belly.

Why We Need to Change
Bravo Auldheid! I particularly liked this bit:

Auldheid says:

“If RFC enjoyed a set up where the club and the company responsible for operating the club were members of the SFA, then that arrangement will be specified in the UEFA licence applications RFC made to the SFA from 2005 to 2011 at least. There will be documented evidence under Art 45 of UEFA FFP held at the SFA to show a written contract of assignment existed between RFC the club and whoever was the operating company – MIH?”

The rebuttal should be…interesting. 🙂

Why We Need to Change
I seldom post as I rarely have much insight to offer, but having followed today’s ongoing tussle between Phil and the RST I feel compelled to offer some thoughts to the TRFC support:

Some of you think the present board are the problem. Some of you think the previous board were the problem, some of you thought Green, Whyte and Murray were the problem. You were all entirely correct in these thoughts.


The biggest problem IMO is the common denominator, the fans. Or more specifically the proliferation of fan splinter groups. The RST, the RSL, SoS, Union Bears, Vanguard Bears etc etc etc. 50% of the time these groups are busy slinging mud at perceived enemies, the other 50% they spend flinging mud at each other. 100% of the time they are led by clowns, to a man, without exception.

TRFC fans, until you stop allowing yourselves to be led by clowns, you are going to go absolutely nowhere good as a support. Have you ever had a fan spokesman/leader that didn’t turn out to be a blazer chasing hypocrite?

It is my belief that the piss poor calibre of your fan representation is why you are where you are. Murray saw through it, Whyte saw through it, Green saw through it and went to town on it. And now King is playing the same games.

Question is, what are the real fans going to do about it?

It Takes Two to Tangle
Just a quick question before the game….

Where does the appeal result leave HMRC? Do they have recourse to a further appeals process, and if so does permission need to be granted or criteria need to be met?

Barca, this does not factor much into your calculations, but…

Around semi final time, many Aberdeen and Dundee Utd fans were discussing a boycott of the Ibrox catering facilities. The ‘comeback’ from TRFC fans on Twitter and Rangersmedia was the boast that the catering contract had been sold off, so in fact the boycott wouldn’t hit TRFC in the pocket. Irony is not their strong point I guess, but I reckon you can scratch that £350k from your workings.
