[TSFM – Feel free to disagree, but that’s not how we conduct ourselves here.]

It’s your ball and your rules, and I accept that’s the way this site is run.

My issue is your claim that Insult is the intellectual enemy of debate

I can’t ever recall attending any debate where insult and put downs were not the heart and soul of of the argument.

Stevie, fair enough, have a laugh – I didn’t do anything to bring this on. David Murray’s spending? Loved it!! Of course I did. For ever fiver Celtic spend I’ll spend a tenner. Why would I doubt he would?! He said he would. Craig Whyte, billionaire. Awesome, glad to have him with us. What? He’s a con artist? What can I do? Nothing. Tried. Told my mates. Nothing doing. So please don’t take pleasure in what is befalling me now.
Carntyne, you’ve made your point to the point of being rude and totally off topic.

I find your remarks insulting and non-sensical.

My response was to a post by Ryan Gosling.

He raised the matter not me, I merely replied, so it’s not me who is off topic.

You would need to be super sensitive to consider my opinion rude.

If you would like to point out any inaccuracies in what I said I’d be pleased to discuss them with you.

Otherwise I’d appreciate it if you restored my post.

Crowds come and go, historically. If crowds are down partly because there is no Sevco in the top flight, it’s a price worth paying.
Agreed but there has to be an impact on the business model at some point where crowds and season book sales are on a downward trend. I’m not decrying Celtic here I’m just pointing out that they are paying a price that most of the other Premiership teams have largely avoided.

That’s because most of the other premiership clubs have very low attendances both now and historically, almost all playing to crowds of under 7,000-8,000 and many much lower than that.

Bawsman – an interesting tidbit overall there and thanks for sharing.

On the point I’ve quoted above…….. Has someone (perhaps on this very forum iirc) not already poured some very icy water on the notion that the Easdales bus firm would be worth that amount?

If, as suggested, the Easdales are looking for a victim to sell their bus company to, the reason won’t be that they want to plough the money into Rangers2.

They are too smart to throw their money into a bottomless pit.

Lots of media triumphalism today about the Rangers Supporters Trust shareholding increase to 500K.

Having listened to the utterances of that organisation in the past, heaven forbid they ever get anywhere near a position of power.

The very reason I wish them well…as I’m sure does Heaven…

….“We are the same club” claims only apply to keeping the history. 🙄
And that is the unbelievable mess the SFA got into, dealing with two quite separate football clubs round the same table , trying to transmigrate the soul of one into the body of the other! And blaming the second body for some (and only some) of the offences of the lifeless corpse.

Meantime, though, BDO are still quietly investigating, and we live in some hope that something of the real rottenness of the whole foul chapter in Scottish football and wider social history will be dragged into the light of day.

As the drama of the last three years unfolded, just like everybody else I could not believe not only what was happening on a daily basis, but also the response to the scandal, of the media, football authorities, and the judiciary.

Rangers,(then) and Sevco,(now) managed to wriggle and squiggle their way through the mess.

What happened to them wasn’t pleasant, but nothing near to what should have happened.

For that reason I have no faith in BDO, the UTTT, or anyone else, bringing down the hatchet on Rangers 2.

The only thing that might prevent Third Rangers is total financial insolvency.

And I wouldn’t bet on that either.

I am staggered that our press have not hounded CO out of office……and the people who prop him up.

I would be staggered if they did…
