Comment on Gilt-Edged Justice by whullie.

I am only catching up here and I apologise if this has been covered.

I read with interest Auldheids offering that TSFM has his draft re the FIFA “whistleblower” site.

I think given Auldheids previously proven ability as a wordsmith and knowledge of the rules, that this is a worthy idea.

Would it be worth posting the final copy on here or should it remain unpublished to disallow those who would attempt to undermine it from doing exactly that? Forewarned is forearmed and all that.

If it is published. Could we comment on or even ‘thumbs up’ (if the admins can recognise individual thumbs-uppers)?

Could the originators of these comments and/or thumbs up be added to the submission in much the same way as signatories to a petition?

An appeal to the world governing body will carry more weight with 500, 1000, 2000, however many backers.

Just to reiterate Brenda. I heard this on the BBC commentary. DJ works (and I use that word advisedly) at Clyde these days?

I was driving at the time so only heard the commentary for the last half hour or so. I have no idea what went on earlier than that.

On Sat Annan subbed a player immediately after the game entered the 3 min of extra time. The player walked slowly off the park but not any more slowly than happens with any other extra time sub Maybe 20 -30 secs at most
Low and behold
The Rangers TV Commentator confidently stated that the Referee “will” add extra time for this time wasting tactic
And he did
He allowed 5 mins of extra time and an unjustified corner to boot
The Rangers game was the last game in all scottish divisions to end on Saturday, all other results were in by a good two minutes or more before full time was called at Ibrokes.

In fairness, I heard on the BBC radio commentary that the kick-off was slightly delayed. The commentators gave no reason for the delay but it was mentioned half way through the second half. As a result of this. I was fully expecting that the game would finish later than others.

Not defending anyone…….just pointing out what was said.

That is exactly my point. A ticket is also a receipt and as such should have a price on it. If it doesn’t, then it is free.

Shapeshifter FC fans are arguing that they are NOT freebies. I say they are and are counted in the attendance totals at Ibrox. The same attendance totals that these fans hold so dear. Which begs a couple of questions.

How many free tickets are issued for any given game?

When is the attendance cup final?

Surely the simple solution is to bang heads together and turn Murrayfield into a true National Stadium.
Murrayfield is now The BT Murrayfield Stadium.
Given BT’s increased stake in football sponsorship, and suggestions that Hampden is on the way out, could there be any link?

Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?
Slightly OT (ish) but there was a real jaw-dropping quip from Derek Johnstone on SSB last night in respect of Dave King’s F&PP status, and I quote:-
“There is the law and there is football law. The SFA will use football law”
It went unchallenged by Jim Delahunt.

I have only just arrived at this post and it triggered a thought.

It may well have been subsequently addressed so apologies if that is the case.

I am thinking that the timing of any insolvency event here is crucial, whether the punishment be 15, 25 or a percentage of the previous season’s total.

This timing issue will determine whether or not that reduction comes off of this season’s total, but having amassed enough points to still win promotion, as to make no difference.

IF however, the timing dictates that the points deduction incurs a negative start point for the new clubs first season in the second tier (a la Hearts this season), that will put a completely different slant on next seasons efforts to win that particular league.

Am I being cynical here in assuming TRFC/RIFC and their “friends” at Hampden may be looking to engineer any potential points reduction to meet with what is best for the Ibrox club?

It is clear that with better sides to compete against in the second tier, TRFC will find it more difficult to win that league. Starting on minus 15, 25 or however many points will make that particular task much more difficult.

Is there a “date” in the close season when a line is drawn in the sand declaring last season is over and the new one has begun?

May I humbly suggest that this is monitored very closely?

Past the Event Horizon
Much speculation as to why The SPFL should suddenly see the merits of chasing the £250k fine.
Suggestions that it is an exercise aimed at legitimising OCNO argument in the blues favour?
I wonder if we could be attacking this from the wrong end.
Is it possible that if/when TRFC/RIFC go t**s up and there is trouble ahead, could the SPFL be in fear of flak coming their way?
If so, could this be a tactic employed by the SPFL enabling them to claim, “not us, that was the SPL. We are not they.”
“In fact look at how vigorously we are chasing this money”
Kinda offering their very own version of the OCNO argument even though the same posteriors are on the same furniture?


Beware the angry Shareholders — they might just demand an answer!

Well aware that this has been mentioned but no link posted although I am still catching up so one may have been posted in the interim.

I have found and listened to Radio Scotland’s podcast from last night and found Keith Jackson’s input to be fair, impartial and reasonable. Until……….the 28th minute where he does actually draw direct comparisons betweens events in Manchester and Amsterdam.

I am paraphrasing here but he talks of it “almost being as easy to get to Amsterdam for Celtic fans as it was for Rangers fans to get to Manchester, and we saw what went on down there. Rangers are still recovering from it. Similar scenes. Shameful scenes. Appalling scenes…………and this, this is up there. From the video clips we’ve seen, Police being attacked, in much the same way as officers were attacked in Manchester. Appalling scenes.”

Make of it what you will.
