“Where do you start with this?”
Where does this end?
Is the outgoing Chairman of the SPFL wearing a squirrel costume for the remainder of his term in office? After his recent Solicitor/QC guff today’s Herald interview is just bonkers.
The Chairman of the SPFL is warning the SFA not to sweep anything under the carpet or stonewall anything? Does he have an ounce of self awareness?
“We don’t want Aunt Harriet to have her way.”
Pardon? Is this serious? Are we really reading an article in The Herald quoting a footballing authority official referencing Batman? At the very least you’d expect the interviewer to clarify the quote with a simple question such as “What daphuq are you on about?”.
I’ll tell you where I started with this. Yesterday evening in the BBC Radio Scotland prematch coverage from Celtic Park they broadcast an interview by Chris McLaughlin with Neil Doncaster and Ralph Topping. Mr Doncaster was glib and shameless and was selling Snake Oil. Mr Topping said things which were definitely all words but from the order he put them in I couldn’t tell what he was saying. At one jawdropping moment he appeared to issue a rallying call to Scottish football fans to act as they did in South Africa. Given his word salad approach it’s not clear if he meant South Africa during the worst excesses of Apartheid or South Africa now, as in where Dave King lives. Either way even on the radio you could sense that Mr Doncaster was squirming. And that takes some doing.
Well, now that I’ve had it explained to me I believe nothing can be done.
Mind you, I also believe that Barry Ferguson has only got three thousand pounds in the whole, wide world.

Whatever tomorrow’s SPFL Statement says, given their reliance on binding authorities, it is safe to expect that the Statement will not conclude:
It may well be that the Statement will mainly be about the establishment of The Independent Investigation Into Headlines Which Would Be Likely To Induce Rage If Permarage Didn’t Exist Inquiry which will be chaired by a foreign neutral, Arlene Foster.
The Inquiry will focus on how five years have passed without the biggest scandal in sporting history being properly addressed:
Daily Record Wednesday, 13th June 2012
Who are these people?
Who was there at the time?
Keith Jackson?
I remember him. Guy was never off Twitter until just before the Supreme Court decision. Not a cheep since.
James Traynor?
I remember him. Got a job with Charles Green punting Snake Oil and then opened a Turd Polishing shop based in ” plush state-of-the-art offices in Blythswood Square”. You could tell it was “plush” because the official contact point was, um, a Mobile Telephone number.
We need to find out how this Romanesque, Non-Biblical headline ever saw the light of day.
More than that we need a Statement. From The Grand Orange Lodge Of Scotland. Or from Club 1872. Or from both. Separate Statements. Or maybe just the same one. Or…

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One

I shall certainly waste no time visiting the new thread.

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Pardon my language but sometimes only the ‘C’ word is apt.
Spoutpish is a Concomitant.
He’s read through something called ‘Insolvency Law’, don’t you know?
He sees nothing incongruous about posting his view on sending someone to the moon to howl at the flat earth. He did so at quarter past midnight.
A troll, no matter how thick and briefly amusing, is not just for Christmas. It’s not just for any time of year.
Will no-one rid us of this turbulent Concomitant?

Who Is Conning Whom?
Trisidium advised that if Spoutpish continued trolling past the Champions League group stages the Ethereal Bonkers OCNC Thread would probably be resurrected.
Since that deadline one whole day has passed.
In that one day I’ve had to scroll past ten, yes, ten (10), posts by the world’s worst hundercover agent as well as scrolling past any posts which engaged with his drivel.
The staunch, dignified, respectful, traditional practice of The Spouting Of The Pish continues without fear, favour or brain cell. I think that satisfies the “if” condition in Trisidium’s advice.
I believe the appropriate procedure can be found in Superman II. Spoutpish is entrapped in gyrating circles before being encased in a spinning rectangular glass and then banished to The Phantom Zone of an OCNC thread all the while shrieking “Niall Before Zod”.
Mark Twain was not a fan of Jane Austen. It was his view that any library is a good library that does not contain Jane Austen. Even if it contains no other book.
Much the same could be said of Spoutpish. If Spoutpish is absent from a site that one omission alone would make a fairly good site out of a site even if it didn’t have a blog, post, comment or anything else in it.
How many times do we have to flush to make this go away?

Who Is Conning Whom?
On the second day of Advent my true troll brought to me,
Two posts pishladen…
Only one more sleep (or night at the keyboard) until the fitting of the jacket with the fasteners at the back.

So from Tuesday night Spoutpish is going to be sectioned.
About time.
If history is anything to go by we are about to be treated to a Three Day Advent Calendar with the slipping of the mask and some offensive (i.e. even more offensive than usual) opinions ending with full blown Spoutpishtardism.
The last time Spoutpish shapeshifted (I think BLUE was in that incarnation’s username) he was immediately identified and one or two posters pointed it out observing that his aim was to choke threads with interminable, inane, long disproven revisionism. The site’s response at that time was to shut down any criticism, put Spoutpish in cotton wool and treat him with kid gloves.
I recall that one poster (Hector?), who had always come across as reasonable and unobjectionable was either asked to leave or chose to leave because Spoutpish’s right to spout pish outweighed Hector’s right to point out that Spoutpish was not only spouting pish but he was doing so in a way designed to derail threads with an avalanche of delusional posts which would eventually turn into hissy fits.
And so it came to pass.
Spoutpish got the boot.
However the site also lost Hector who by my lights was worth any number of Spoutpishes.
In Spoutpishland that’s a victory for Spoutpish.
At least we now know that from Tuesday night Spoutpish will have a comfy, padded thread all of his own where he can “debate” with the no doubt throngs of devotees wishing to sit at his feet receiving his words of wisdom all of which will conclude with the ancient mantra:

I Am The Person.
