In all fairness 30 – 35k is a pretty good attendence for a Tuesday night. Kingco should be concerned about the booing, and the, ahem, quality of interaction with the customer base of their latest NED (or is that ned. I’m not quite sure to be honest), some training is required there! 😉

Honeymoons seem to be getting ever shorter in Scottish Public life

The avowedly pro Indy site Wings over Scotland has done some polling on Football. You can get the full SP on his site. but some interesting numbers on OFBA:

““The Offensive Behaviour (Football) Act 2012 bans the singing of sectarian songs in and around football matches, but some supporters claim it infringes their civil liberties, or that it was intended to victimise their club alone.

Do you support the Act, or do you think it should be abolished?”

ALL RESPONDENTS

Support the Act: 60%
Should be abolished: 14%
Don’t know/don’t care: 26%

“RANGERS” FANS

Support the Act: 59%
Should be abolished: 29%
Don’t know/don’t care: 13%

CELTIC FANS

Support the Act: 64%
Should be abolished: 25%
Don’t know/don’t care: 11%

OTHER SCOTTISH CLUBS

Support the Act: 76%
Should be abolished: 10%
Don’t know/don’t care: 14%

NON-FOOTBALL

Support the Act: 54%
Should be abolished: 8%
Don’t know/don’t care: 38%”

Usual health warnings around polls, but, nonetheless, definitely food for though there.

There probably is something to be learned from the English FA, just as there is from the Germans, French, etc.

I’m not sure how much of the difficulty lies with the rule book, and how much with the culture & quality of the personnel.

That said, the legal framework has changed dramatically over the last couple of decades, and many organisations need to update their rules to make them more Judge proof.

Anne Budge understands that competitors, can also be partners. What’s good for Hibs, can also be good for Hearts and vice versa. The SPFL should be run a cooperative model, rather than for the benefit of a few favoured sons. Its one of the few cases where the old saying “A rising tide floats all boats” is actually true.

Been caught up with the agony & the ecstasy elsewhere, any word on King’s FPP?

Perfectly respectable point of view. However, I suspect things like Armed Forces Day are here to stay. A lot of people in the military love their football, they do not by any means all support Rangers. So if there is going to be some sort of Armed Forces Day, then why not make it inclusive rather than exclusive?
Personally, I think the SFA saying to the military, if service personnel turn up on Cup Final Day in uniform we’ll let them in free, is a much better way for football as whole to mark an “Armed Forces Day”, rather than the perennial PR car crash waiting to happen at Ibrox.
I bet, (know) a lot of serving military types would be quietly delighted to see and an end to the purely Rangers day.
YMMV

Tried to add:
How about the SFA holding an Armed Forces Day as part of Scottish Cup Final? A bit like the Lawn Tennis Association does at Wimbledon, thereby detoxifying the whole issue?

Possibly, do they use temporary seating for Forces day?

Problem with the stands at Ibrox you say?
“Nothing to see here” says the man on the level
What about that Section 89 Building warrant lodged with the Glasgow City council?
