The latest refereeing scandal is an opportunity for change. We need to grab this one and it’s high time Celtic led from the front.

James, my reading of the above is that there needs to be a response because Celtic have been on the wrong end of a bad decision.

Can you take it up with James on his own site please?

SFM, Unfailingly polite, as ever, and I appreciate your efforts to move on from this particular topic but I’m sorry you felt the need to chop my post. I was too polite to ask James to keep that discussion to his site but the part of my post that you’ve excised was a genuine effort to widen the discussion into something that may have been more relevant to TSFM.

Re. refereeing decisions.

I’d agree that this would be a worthwhile discussion for TSFM if there was a catalogue of evidence that pointed to any referee, or a group of referees acting in concert, favouring a particular team. My immediate reaction to Mr Beaton’s decision last night was a stunned disbelief at his over-reaction. That doesn’t mean there’s evidence to support corrupt or simply incompetent refereeing, it’s just an opinion, possibly biased – the person I was watching the game with asked why I was so annoyed at an incident in a game I’d no interest in.

Good moderation call by TSFM I’d say.

TSFM, I’m surprised at your response to ecobhoy’s pieces on the alleged corrupt land deals/state aid. Unlike the OCNC and TUPE discussions it does’t go round in circles (even Campbell’s money was reduced to shouting). The pieces are always temperate and reasoned and fact-based on a matter relevant to the wider Scottish football community.

Twopanda, can I have the home team please?

I seem to recall that part of Dave King’s settlement with the South African Revenue Service was a  requirement that Mr King’s family repatriate business assets held overseas into South Africa. Has anyone any insight into how this sits with NOAL being BVI-based?

EJ, I’ve no cause to doubt you or Hearts directors or the company auditors. It’s a fact though that people will speculate on these matters, often getting things completely wrong, intentionally or simply through ignorance.

blu December 20, 2017 at 11:16 There is an element of truth in Tangoed’s assertion about the need for transparency though – I’m sure there’s plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback as to the identity of the mysterious benefactors. ===================== There is indeed plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback about the benefactor(s).
A couple of well informed posters have all but confirmed that the money has come from partners in an Edinburgh investment company.

EJ,
I’m sure that you and others closer to the club will have a very good idea who these people are but as long as the club is asked to keep their identities private there will be speculation and aspersions cast from the east of Edinburgh and further afield.

I’ll decline from commenting further, the majority of members here seem to think it is acceptable to conjecture that Hearts are being funded by the proceeds of crime.

For the avoidance of doubt Homunculus, I agree with your challenge to Tangoed – his subsequent response confirms it is simple speculation, possibly mischievous. My question was more focused on what might be considered as money laundering, tangential and less important than your challenge.

Homunculus, I don’t think that money laundering was referred to by Tangoed, no doubt they’ll respond to fully explain.
