Comment on Where now for the Judicial Panel Protocol? by iceman63.

Grant Russell is representative of the MSM coterie of journalists – they are all duplicitous, truth-avoiding idiots. Clearly not one amongst them has any notion of truth or decency or the roles and responsibilities of a journalist. They will believe ( or pretend to believe) any nonsense to keep their gravy train rolling. Unfortunately for them the gravy has dried up – SEVCO are headed for the buffers and the whole saga is on mark 2- this time earlier in the season with no reserves to get them through.

The MSM are chumps – big time – they will face the ultimate ridicule when this goes belly up. No doubt by Christmas none of them will have ever called SEVCO “Rangers” – because SEVCO will not be trading and so a new Rangers will need to be born – cue next thieving bandit through the door.

More rules will be changed and to avoid the risk of them folding again the new new Rangers (but always the Rangers though no’ new but the same club right any argument you get chibbed ) will be accelerated into the top tier ( for the good of Scottish football) amidst a vast triumphalist storm of moonbeams – and so the saga will continue.

I think very little of BRTH’s “paper chase” – a great cointribution yesterday by BRTH – will ever see the light of day.

We have a whole mass of vested interests determined to hide most of what happened. We may see some individuals prosecuted from RFC, but I suspect the shenanigans and culture of the SFA and SPL and SFL and the directed and deliberately maladministered administration by D and P skewed to protect the future of Rangers and not the interests of the creditor will essentially be covered up. Lord Hodge will Ok their report and tell us all to move on. The extent of political interference, collusion and involvement will remain buried.

BDO will prove a very narrowly focused and selective “paper chase” – key individuals and their transactions only will be fully explored. Much will not be touched.

So, Whyte and Murray and possibly one or two others hung out to dry – the rest to be ignored – unless Daly or RTC or Alex Thomson can dig the dirt despite being hampered by the powers that be determined to keep it hidden.

There is no chance of getting anywhere with the Templeton issue. Just best to chalk it to the list – the latest and actually one of the most minor of the rule breaches incurred by SEVCO and by the SFA itself throughout this saga.

Late signings are part and parcel of the process – this particular transgression is not uniquely Rangers, at least in European terms though I think it is unique in Scottish transfers but I may be wrong – and a nod and a wink has always sufficed in the past. The late transfer deal has usually suited all parties involved and you hear no more about it. Corruption and sharp practice are rife within the game especially as regards player regsitrations and transfers.

You could try contacting UEFA – but to date they have just blanked any inquiries regarding any of the shenanigans of the SFA – and a late registered player by some minutes is such small beer compared to what they have simply turned a blind eye to, to date that I suspect the response will be deafening silence..

i think there are distinct anti-Rangers terms and attitudes which are offensive “sc*m” the banned words and others have been used on here and are unacceptable.
I am not that keen on “knuckle draggers” either

We can attack the institution and its fan base for their actions with appropriate language.

So when Miki talks of ” Anti-Rangers” attitudes being acceptable I think we need to be careful how we define this. We can and must attack the actions of RFC and SEVCO and the SFA in relation to Rangers. We can question the mentality of those who sing sectarian songs, the wider denial of the fans as regards the nature of the entity they support and their denial in accepting that the club they once supported id in a state of suspended animation awaiting destruction.

I don’t think we should develop an anti – rangers mindset per se- some of the contributors on RTC and those we need this blog to reach were supporters of RFC (IA) – not certain where they stand on the SEVCO model but that should not iin any way hamper criticism of the club that is valid and evidence based., There is plenty there without resorting to abusive terminology frankly!

I am with Bopster. The fans should simply walk away, and understand the entire enterprise of Scottish Professional Football is fraudulent.
The passion of fans is used by cynical owners as though it belonged to them and not to the fans themselves. All fans need simply to become ex-fans. I became one in 2012, and have not been back.
Show the businesses that you are ethical customers not simply assets of the cub and do do walking away.
Only then can a clean game emerge. If fans say this is a fraud and walk away, then, and only then will the clubs respond. Then and only then will action be taken..

I think the next step is now down to Lawwell and Celtic. They should instigate a judicial review and hand over the whole shebang of cheating evidence to UEFA. If they fail to do this, then may I suggest too the Celtic supporters who did not act as me to give Celtic an empty stadium with thousands protesting outside as the flag of shame is unfurled. The fans should then either walk away or enter once the flag ceremony is complete.

Perhaps the most effective and immediate course of action is for all fans of Scottish football to cancel all subscriptions with SKY and BT Sports. If even say five or ten thousand cancellations with reason given that their companies are supporters of fraud rather than football were received that may create some difficult discussions for SPFL board.
I would boycott games, but my boycott of all Scottish football has been ongoing since 2012. I think my choice has been vindicated by the inevitable subsequent squalor that Scottish Football has descended into.
My main regret is that the vast majority of my fellow supporters including every other member of my family, did not follow suit. Had the boycott been sustained in 2012 by the fans, then this disgrace would never have come to pass.

Peace – Not War
We owe a lot to Phil. His is still the only book to be published on the demise of Rangers. He is still the only regular blogger left who has the courage not to hide behind anonymity, and while he is sometimes a bit off, or a bit hyperbolic in his style, he does still produce scoops that no other named individual is prepared to publish.
There was, on this site, considerable “sniffiness” or “lack of sniffability” about Phil’s fiddling on the roof exclusive. The missive from the Scottish Government shows that, at the very least, the issue is real, is live and is being monitored.
Shamefully, this admission is once again being ignored by the SMSM- in its entirety. Were this any other club, we can imagine the hysteria, and righteous indignation and possibly hyperbolic response that our tabloid press, and tabloid TV and radio would make of such a revelation. I suspect continued silence from the relevant council and club would be condemned utterly and there would be a wholly justified demand that all relevant documentation, from surveyors, to contracts, to proposals for remedial work, to guarantees of public safety to be placed in the public domain, immediately as a matter of urgency, but with the Ibrox outfit, even with something as potentially serious as this situation with a potentially unsafe roof, we get nada.
We truly are appallingly misserved by the culture of antijournalism amongst journalists in Scotland. They are failing in their basic function in a democratic society. The fourth estate is, to all intents and purposes, now only extant at all in Scotland, online.

Journey’s End?
I just realised that with a loss to Hibs, Rangers have now lost more games in the lower league this season, than Celtic have in the league above. Yet Warburton is lauded as a genius and Deila has been sacked. Trump gives the impression that the system is rigged against him, yet his actual vote percentage is far less than his percentage if delegates, in reality the system is rigged in his favour.
In this world, perception now defeats reality. Hence, I think, the reason for the drop off I SFM and support. There is a feeling of despondency and defeat based upon the perception that cheats have prevailed. The reality is of course somewhat different. The SFA still face a day in court over the fit and proper persons test, LNS is not the final word, and once all appeals are over legally, it will be revisited, and as Phil remind us Rangers are a loss making business, held in existence by personal finances with no line of credit from the bank, in other words a fundamentally unstable institution.
We appear to be defeated, but it may in fact still be November 1940, with a long road ahead to victory.
Or we may, in fact, be totally screwed.
