It doesn’t need complicated goal line technology. A simple system could be implemented by two cameras and a PC to record and rewind the video. Stick a video referee in radio contact with the ref and hey presto. If you want to get fancy then give each manager three challenges like they do in tennis. When they’re used up then thats it.


Exactly. An 8mm camera wired up to an old analogue tv coupled with a Betamax VCR could do the job. Save a fortune.

Sounds up to the job – as long as you can prevent any LNS interference .

I know I shouldn’t but I really do get a nice sense of enjoyment when I see the likes of Murray and Masterton being put through the mill. I know they will have enough money salted away to see them comfortably through the remains of their life so financially they will not suffer much, but the loss of prestige is probably more damaging to them than any actual cash loss.

Murray’s fall, from being the WATP’s equivalent of Scottish royalty to the villain of the piece, is obviously the most enjoyable but it is heartening to now see the rest of the gang being brought to book.

Dominoes anyone 😀

wottpi beat me to it. Who said McKenzie did not produce the result his clients wanted after a long drawn out process during which time the ‘restless natives’ had time to calm down.
Also echobhoy I understood it was an enquiry and not a trial. Was LNS not allowed to ask questions or if he was was he just very selective in the questions he asked?
Just too many things have gone the right way for one club for it not to smell to high heaven!


Who was Bryson there on behalf of?

As I said if Harper Macleod get any further work from the “beaks” (and maybe even from Celtic) then surely we can only come to the conclusion that, “on the balance of probabilities”, they were part of the fix.

Very good, amigo.
A question arises, however. Who are the Easedales? Where did they fit in? Where are they now?
Counting the profits from the tenders that they have been awarded since they went “high profile”. Their “investments” in RFC were a small price to pay.

Succulent lamb is not only served to journalists.

If the club cannot be punished then it stands to reason the SFA has the responsibility to prevent the identified group from attending similar events…either by playing behind closed doors or witholding away tickets…

Within 2 games it will stop…that is how easy it is…unless of course you support racism.
When the offence takes place at an away ground, in addition to a ban on the travelling support, the offending club should be fined an amount equal to or exceeding their ticket allocation for their next away game. This money should then be given to the opposition as they shouldn’t suffer from the drop in revenue due to a ban on the travelling support.

The old Celtic Park did indeed have a Rangers end…………That was (like Hampden) the covered end 👿
The Rangers end at CP was covered in 1967. The Celtic end was first covered around 1958 – although it did not extend all the way to the front of the terracing.

If I was Kenny Macdowall and I wanted to get the hell out of Dodge with my full entitlement I’d leave the 5 loanee’s out of any future squads. 😈 😈

So no one in the SFA thinks the sectarian singing at the Sunday semi final needs investigating?? Really? It was heard in over 50 countries apparently. Do rules not apply to TRFC?
(Serious question actually, no laughing at the back)
The SFA will, as always, do nothing. Police Scotland have already stated that the VAST majority of fans were well behaved. However, if you break down the numbers, you have 50,000 fans attending. Split 50/50 gives you 25,000 per side. 20,000, or 40%, of one side behave appallingly. That means that 30,000, or 60%, behaved well. Seems like an overwhelming majority to me. Of course an old cynic like me would say that this was abusing the statistics but who cares about me when the truth can be so easily distorted to suit.
