This morning, I sent out a mail to our monthly subscribers inviting them to take up the option of a SFM email address.

We are doing this in order to recruit and retain subscribers for our long-term funding plans. If any non-subscriber is interested in getting a SFM mailbox, please click here for details.

Just to clarify this “greatest story ever told” thing. It has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the Scottish Football Monitor (as has been suggested elsewhere).

In fact we are as sceptical over the source and motivation of this story as we were with Charlotte Fakes.

Apart from anything else, I think it ill-advised to make such a splash before any story gets out. If indeed there is a story that we don’t already know about, one would think that working quietly for an outlet would be the way to go. If the source of the story has contacts in the media, it seems bizarre he would peddle it on Twitter for anything other than “look at me” reasons.

Peter Lawwell commissioning the source to consult? Not in this reality.

Of course, I could be wrong, but my gut tells me the purpose of this latest phenomenon is to discredit those of us who harbour a sense of grievance over what has taken place over the last few years.

The Hearts penalty incident at the weekend WAS brought up on the blog. I suspect there was no clamour (compared to the SCSF) because the decision didn’t materially affect any outcomes. I can tell you that several posts were removed (none from Hearts or Hibs fans I might add) which alluded to the old conspiracy thing.

However to post criticism of the blog or other posters in witheringly sarcastic terms (as was the case with a post removed this morning) is very much a trolling activity.

If you have no respect for others’ views I would appreciate it if you don’t post in those terms – or even at all.

Again I should point out that, in general, criticism of referees should be in broad terms and not about specific incidents which are almost always contentious.

My own view of that incident was that the referee had got it badly wrong, but the view of two former Hearts players (one of whom is a Jambo Deity) was that the ref got it right. That did nothing to alter my own opinion, but I am also aware of several folk on Jambos Kickback who were satisfied with the outcome if John Robertson was 🙂

I believe that our own contributors were aware of that and this probably informed the blog’s general attitude to the incident.

Be surprised if the larger part of the loans is converted to shares.
Control of a structurally insolvent company lies not in virtually worthless shares, but with the major creditors who will retain control when the shareholders are all stiffed.
Going to happen.

Highlander,
Wasn’t aware that anyone had reproduced Concomitant’s article elsewhere. Nobody asked either, but it’s not a problem for us.
As we’ve said, it’s not a contest. 👍

So true about the sport being killed by the authorities.
No matter how corrupt RFC were, the sport could have survived the reputational damage imposed by a rogue club. Impossible to survive damage imposed by rogue governance.
