Don’t know about a ‘slam dunk’ defence…

I thought the Coral’s QC was going for the legendary ‘Chewbacca defence’. 


(And what are the odds of a ‘new club’ entering the SPFL during 2017/18 ? )

Of course a lucky streak can happen in any activity, randomly.  We know over the long term the probability is correct e.g. at 50/50 for 2 outcomes.

However, the further curiosity is the timing.
This run of home games has apparently occurred at EXACTLY the most fortuitous time for TRFC.

What are the odds of that?  09

1) Corals
Wonder what odds they’d give for an insolvency event at TRFC Ltd. during 2017?
Or would they simply refuse to take the bet?

2) Alleged fixed draws.
Over the years I thought it was just an urban myth or running joke, e.g. to keep RFC and CFC apart until a cup final.
More recently, the seemingly significant, statistical deviation which is the run of home cup games for TRFC does raise an eyebrow.
And then Sepp Blatter is quoted last year;

“…Blatter explained how a ‘blind’ draw could be fixed, saying, “Balls are put in the freezer before the draw, at the slightest touch you can tell if the balls are hot or cold…”

(OK, a caveat must be that Blatter is not exactly renowned for his honesty.)

With the attention in D.C., I suppose today could be a good day to issue any bad news, at 5pm on a Friday as well…?

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
