I believe you do on the whole a very good job scanning, moderating and so on, to produce a first class blog, frequented by excellent contributors. But could there be times when you need to reassess your input?

You deleted a post of mine. No big deal. You’ve deleted better posts than that. I asked you why. You gave as the reason that the point I made is debatable, and many would argue most definitely against it.

Not true and you know that. That is not the reason your post was removed. I await your apology

These are grounds for censorship? Do you actually believe comments are inappropriate because they are debatable and that people would argue strongly against them? On a blog on Scottish football, and in its current state?
Can you be serious?

I posted yesterday @ 9.33 pm on politics inside football grounds pointing out that the poppy is also a political symbol. The post has been removed. TSFM, could you explain that deletion for me please?

Yes. It is debatable that the poppy is a political symbol. It may have been hijacked in the same way as the Union flag, but many would also argue that it is most definitely NOT political . Consequently it is not appropriate for us to have that conversation on TSFM.

I’ve just read the above again. Excuse the pedantry. Canny help it. But EJ, we need your knowledge.

Fwiw EJ I’m with the others who hope you’ll have a change of heart.

And the reason given for the non-punishment of Bougherra was that they had spoken to the referee who swore that at no stage had he felt threatened. So the new yardstick for judging the offence became whether the official felt threatened.

I think you’re giving me too much credit, but I’ll take it!

Taking a leaf out of Goosey’s book, I predict that when people can no longer deny that limited liability club is company is club, they will switch the emphasis to Team. It’s not the club that wins games they will tell us, it’s the team on the pitch. Right, so maybe the club’s dead, but the team lives on the same as every other team. Sure players have died, retired, been transferred, but that’s the same for all teams.

At last they’ll have something that’s true for every club that operates a team that consists of players on the park. But don’t anybody mention unregistered contracts.

Greenock Jack,
You claimed that PM got unfair criticism on here. Not having seen any, I asked you for examples. You come up with one only, that P. Murray is not leadership material, and then you say you agree with it! You’re not making sense.

“Like all of us, PM won’t be without his flaws but the level, tone and scope of criticisms are IMO also flawed.”

I’m curious I have to say. I wish you’d give us some instances where the flaws in critique = flaws in PM performance?
