I can’t quite get my head round that insane attempt by Bill McMurder to get the lynch mob mentality going in such a sleekit and awful way. I hope Ch4′s lawyers are on that like h*ngry eagles. That is one of the worst things I’ve ever read in my six decades on this violent planet.
Completely vile,vile,vile.
As every one on here knows, A. Thomson is a real journalist who has actually risked his life to get at the truth about news stories (see http://blogs.channel4.com/alex-thomsons-view/hostile-territory/1863). Some fat arsed churno up here who’s never tried to get real stories and never risked more than not meeting his daily pie consumption quota having a go at him like that is way, way beyond disgusting.

Just came across this, Traynor is not all bad!!

13/04/12 DAILY RECORD – “Some Rangers fans believe the club’s history, which would end with liquidation, must be protected but there is a shameful part of that history which they should want to forget and any newco should make it clear a new beginning means exactly that. A new club open to all from the very beginning.” (Jim Traynor)

Is he not far too late with that??

Here’s a clue why the Scottish Sun didn’t want to risk losing fans of sevco as a demographic. Prob is they don’t know how many fans of other teams they may now lose….
Notice it makes use of the words “readership” and “readers” which makes the figures look quite good. But isn’t it the case that journals use these terms to refer to all readers regardless of whether they buy the paper – and “circulation” is the word for actual sales of papers?

(Assuming I’m correct and if I@m not someone here will quickly correct me) I don’t know what assumptions are made that this is based on but I’d guess fairly elastic ones and the actual circulation is much lower than the figures given here.

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One

Thing is, some folk – in fact many – can be smart and talented in one field but quite dumb when it comes to other fields.  Even university professors.  It’s all about what you bother to learn about and how you apply what you learn (and it can be affected by laziness, arrogance, prejudice and so on).

These folk get the attitude that because they know a lot about one thing they have an attitude that their expertise automatically transfers into other spheres of which they know very little.  Of course Lambert knows about football – about playing it and coaching, but he doesn’t know anything about what been going on in Scottish football these last couple of decades and no doubt has given no more than a very superficial effort into trying to find out. 

Who Is Conning Whom?
Just had a quick browse through sheepish fan forums.  Seems a general inclination to back McInnes.  Also seems that statement from Rangers will have been very helpful to McInnes in getting continued backing from AFC fans.

Who Is Conning Whom?


While I think you may be right about this, the question is how do you prove it and who will pursue it even if some proof is found
The Football authorities will be unwilling and the thing is Rangers have always been able to “tap” people they want without using the usual under the table methods.  They have the whole SMSM to do that for them.  
My own feeling is while McInnes may have been a wished for target they may have already decided they can’t afford him, however the process has undermined a key opponent.  An official approach (one in which apparently they were unwilling to upfront the money as required) can be seen as them justifying what they did retrospectively. 
They may even believe there’s an outside chance with the SMSM help they can force Aberdeen to drop their demand for all the money upfront and that McInnes will jump ship.  But their main object will already have been achieved regardless.

Who Is Conning Whom?
Could this refusal by Aberdeen be not down to annoyance at TRanger’s unsettling their manager but due to TRangers’ being unwilling to show evidence of of ability/willingness to pay the compensation due.  (E.g. put all or large part of money due into 3rd party account??)

Enough is enough

I must really add that while what you are saying is absolutely true your particular emphasis seems to suggest that the BBC is reliable outside of football reporting.  I may be quite mistaken, if so apologies.  But I think it’s worth saying here that the BBC (and other media outlets) are very much establishment biased and not just in sport. 

For instance there’s a  bit of a rammy just about tax evaders in the MSM but this will pass quickly and the media will move on to other things.  On the other hand every week for years not only do you regularly see stuff about benefit cheats there are whole TV programs appearing about them creating the impression it is a massive problem when in fact the figure estimated by government for this is about 2% of those claiming benefits – and in fact many for various reasons don’t get benefits they are honestly due.   

Now if the papers had been filled every day for years with articles criticising tax dodgers and there was a weekly TV program on folk dodging tax I bet government might feel pressure to do more about it.  However the MSM know they can get away with brief attacks on the powerful creating the impression of even handedness when over a longer period they are anything but.  

I’d better stop here as I’m wandering way off-topic. 
Apologies if I bored some of you.  But to try to tie it to on-topic, don’t just think the pro-Ibrox bias is a purely a football thing, it’s part of a more general attitude in the MSM.

BTW JohnJames site has …well … a rant on this. Has a real go at the BBC.
