‘I’ve also read recently Rangers fans described as .

I totally agree that allowing the language of hate on here undermines the blog’s credentials. It’s more than tiresome, and posts referring to, ‘Well, look at what the other lot say’, don’t wash. You either take the high moral ground and stay there, or you get off and jump back into the gutter. This blog will never achieve respect or standing in the media if it allows itself to be used as a scratchpad for people’s personal rage.

I think that last para from Danish should be etched on our collective conscience. We should be taking the moral high ground, and ensuring that language of the kind described above is not only unacceptable to moderators, but to us all.

Football is a game which arouses passion, and consequently we all understand when some of us get agitated over events. Right now, the blog is going through a trough as perceptions grow that justice is not being done. That is not good for passions.

Whether justice is done or not, it will make no difference to the correctness of our position; but if we allow ourselves to cross the line with unacceptable language, EVERYBODY will stop listening, and we will be left preaching to ourselves.

I think Danish has been a valuable contributor to this blog and to RTC, but I don’t think he has ever made a contribution so succinct and important as this. I hope we are all listening.

Thanks guys. The person who contacted me is a lurker on here, so he will be pleased to know he chose correctly when he told them to do one 🙂

OT to some extent, although it could have national repercussions if true. I’ve had a contact from a Celtic shareholder who says has been approached by an NYC firm A J Nelson Consultants LLC to buy his shares (at a very favorable price).

Could be nonsense, but has anyone heard anything about someone looking to buy big?

Rangers were not the lender. The Sub-Trusts, into which Rangers made a contribution via an EBT, are the “lender”. Rangers gave the money away and there can be no suggestion of repayment to them.

Yes, but had the loans been repaid by the lendees, Rangers would have been able to apply for one themselves had they set up a sub-trust in their favour. Therefore the money would have been available to the club in times of hardship.

Or perhaps I am missing something here?

Res 12 is as you say important, but I am convinced that Celtic have no desire whatsoever to pursue its aims.
We could have a discussion about the possible reasons, but ultimately if DD is disinclined to seek a proper answer to these questions, then the SFA will dodge the bullet.
Thus my question to Campbellsmoney: do individual (or groups of) shareholders have locus to seek legal redress here?
Going at it in that fashion may even force Celtic and other clubs for that matter to come on board.

Is there anyone outside of the clubs who may have locus to challenge LNS? Is there any basis for a challenge?

I don’t know is the answer, but I doubt it. You see its not a question of law really. Its not a proper court – its a made up thing by a private body.
_________________________________________________________________

I meant a challenge in law. For example, is there a framework whereby a shareholder(s) of a club(s) could challenge the outcome?

It does seem rather odd that, if a most people here believe, RFC achieved honours dishonestly and in doing so denied other clubs prize-money and opportunity that those clubs are reluctant to seek redress.

My guess I that the must have something to lose by bringing that up – but what?

Is there a mechanism through which the SFA/SPL could be sued by individual shareholders for loss of earnings caused by a lack of proper regulation by the governing bodies.
