The key words are “critique” and “off topic”.
Use of a moronic post from one forum to make a general point about the mindset of a group is also a problem here.
We could cherry-pick from other forums and arrive at the same, predetermined conclusion.

But we don’t do that here.

I am surprised that you are surprised. The first five words of that post was abuse of another poster. Wasn’t a simple rebuttal at all. It is th sort of post that makes moderation easier though.

Could anyone enlighten me as to why the OCNC thread is called β€˜Bonkers OCNC’?

I was of the opinion that any event taking part on a football field in Scotland fell into the category for debate on TSFM.
Why the change? There is more to football than football in this country.

No change at all VC. Rock concerts take place on football fields, and they have nothing to do with us. There are political and historical reasons for attitudes of Rangers and Celtic fans which are a mystery to the rest of us. I should add that many of the posts which were removed yesterday fell into that rather unfortunate reactionary trap of tagging a whole section of our community pejoratively.
That development, coupled with previous experience, has shown us that we are not yet ready to have that debate.

For the record, I personally found the events at Ibrox to be cheap, tacky and distasteful, but still irrelevant to the business of this blog. If this becomes a deal-breaker for some (and it has), then we are allowing ourselves to be distracted from the real issues which directly affect the governance of the game.


For the reasons stated above, the principles of this blog are being adhered to. The comment you spoke of was perfectly reasonable as you say, and should have been moved to this thread instead of being deleted. Apologies for that – it’s been a busy 24 hrs..

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.
