One of the many things this blog should focus on is transparency.
The need for transparent ownership of clubs (something, if I were a rangers fan, I’d be getting very exercised about right now).
Transparency in the governance of our game, clubs have spent all summer hiding behind Reagan and Doncaster while attempting to make decisions with scant regard for the fans.
If this blog can force some light to be shone in these dark corners then making it work will be a worthwhile effort.

Hello
probably not possible but any chance of a neutral indicator as well as the usual tu/td options if not sure or no opinion about a comment?
Think of it as the “not proven verdict” of the blogosphere.


Hello
If we leave the name as “Scottish football corruption” isn’t there a danger that Stewart and Neil and Jabba and SDM will just keep visiting looking for tips?


Hello
Well done for setting this up PL.
The light touch moderation we’re used to would be perfect, if there are regular blogs of substance to keep things focused.

JohnJames is stating as a fact that the Dundee Utd players have been told that they are going into administration on Monday. I really hope that he’s got this one badly wrong

How can I put this – complete and utter pish – like most of his output

‘The Rangers’   I’ve often wondered how Charles Green got away with such a miniscule change to the name.  As I understood it, under the phoenix laws any new business arising from the ashes had to have a significantly different name so that it could not be seen to go into liquidation, shed the debt and start again unharmed, name intact

IIRC (and it is a while ago now) permission was sought (by CG) from and granted by the liquidators BDO.
Perhaps someone else who kept notes or has a better memory than me might confirm this?

Wrt Ranger’s reported desire to see strict liability brought in.

The cynic would suppose that they know the other clubs are dead set against it so it makes them look good while they know it’s never gonnae happen…

Even if it turns out that Phil is correct and the Scottish government will insist they’d still look better than the others and if it’s inevitable they’ve nothing to loose.

TBH I’m struggling to understand how it could be tacked onto ground licencing without local authorities rather than the SFA becoming responsible for enforcement and sanctions which I truly doubt they’d want involved in.

Finally you’d hope they’d simply decided it was time to put a cork in the choir’s gob for their own benefit and that of football and Scottish society as a whole – well a man can dream, can’t he 09

I note that while the panel rejected the…error…over the designation of the club (cough) they suggested that the SFA might want to tighten up on that in future 12
Bit late 10 

I assume the charges against Rangers were dropped as the consideration of Hibs covered the same ground?
