I would imagine that the police figures are consistent with the number of people who actually go through the turnstiles. They may well also ask the club for any additional numbers in hospitality etc who have entered the ground through other means but by and large they will be the correct numbers.

As always in this saga Chuck is using figures in the way that suits him. Depending on how you look at it the attendance can be either the number of tickets issued, the number of tickets bought, the number of tickets actually used or, in Chuck’s world, a combination of all three dependent on what statistic you want to produce. As his aim is to project Rangers as the greatest supported team in the universe it follows that he will claim that the number of tickets issued is in fact the attendance. The only problem with that is if you issue 50,000 odd tickets and there are empty seats people will catch on to your little stats scam. Better to deduct a couple of thousand from that figure and then you can mask over a lot of sins.

No matter what figures he produces however it’s the amount of revenue that is being generated that is important. He might be able to fool the MSM but he won’t be able to disguise the amount of cash going into the bank. Unless he’s doing another Craig Whyte trick and holding back on the money due to the revenue then he isn’t going to last very long. Even then he’ll eventually run out of cash, in my guess around about February. The January sales window will give us an insight into the real situation. How many players will be “requesting moves to further their careers”?

Money laundering ……….now that would create a severe environment including blast, thermal pulse, neutrons, x- and gamma-rays, radiation, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), and ionization of the upper atmosphere.

I’m sure there’s a shorter description but it escapes me for the moment !

I always thought the term “lobby dosser” referred to a person of no fixed abode like a tramp. Could be wrong though.

Richard,

The Treaty of Versailles was, by and large, set up with the right intentions. OK it was flawed but hindsight is wonderful. The Marshall Plan however was a carefully constructed set of events that was set up to benefit one country. Sure, it helped to rebuild Europe but at what cost? Where was the equipment made that rebuilt Europe. The US. Was the equipment provided free of charge. No. OK the loans to buy the equipment could be considered as “soft loans” but they certainly weren’t at any time like an EBT, in that they would never need to be repaid.

Back on the topic of Rangers and their return to the top flight of Scottish football and the ramifications for the rest of us. The lunatic fringe is a misnomer, more like a lunatic coverall. Rangers, by and large, are supported by a section of society that see themselves as above and beyond the rest of us. They exist in concert with the Or@nge Order and vice versa. Their reason for existing is to support each other. The songbook reflects this. Are there any songs that don’t have hatred writ through them? Posters on here have frequently asked “where are all the decent Rangers supporters?” Well the reason for their silence is that, with very few exceptions, they don’t exist. A Scotland without Rangers in it’s present guise would be a far better place, but is there a Rangers without the hatred and supremacist belief? I don’t believe so. Pandering to their fan base in the hope of getting a few shekels is the worst thing we could do. Far better to get rid of the problem child.

I fully expect a lot of TD’s for this. However, if anyone feels I’m out of order with this don’t just TD me, try and convince me I’m wrong. I’m a reasonable person who is prepared to listen and understand alternative and opposing viewpoints to mine.

I’ll be here all night.

Very good, amigo.
A question arises, however. Who are the Easedales? Where did they fit in? Where are they now?
=========================================
Counting the profits from the tenders that they have been awarded since they went “high profile”. Their “investments” in RFC were a small price to pay.

Succulent lamb is not only served to journalists.

If the club cannot be punished then it stands to reason the SFA has the responsibility to prevent the identified group from attending similar events…either by playing behind closed doors or witholding away tickets…

Within 2 games it will stop…that is how easy it is…unless of course you support racism.
=============================
When the offence takes place at an away ground, in addition to a ban on the travelling support, the offending club should be fined an amount equal to or exceeding their ticket allocation for their next away game. This money should then be given to the opposition as they shouldn’t suffer from the drop in revenue due to a ban on the travelling support.

The old Celtic Park did indeed have a Rangers end…………That was (like Hampden) the covered end 👿
—————————————–
The Rangers end at CP was covered in 1967. The Celtic end was first covered around 1958 – although it did not extend all the way to the front of the terracing.

If I was Kenny Macdowall and I wanted to get the hell out of Dodge with my full entitlement I’d leave the 5 loanee’s out of any future squads. 😈 😈

So no one in the SFA thinks the sectarian singing at the Sunday semi final needs investigating?? Really? It was heard in over 50 countries apparently. Do rules not apply to TRFC?
(Serious question actually, no laughing at the back)
============================================
The SFA will, as always, do nothing. Police Scotland have already stated that the VAST majority of fans were well behaved. However, if you break down the numbers, you have 50,000 fans attending. Split 50/50 gives you 25,000 per side. 20,000, or 40%, of one side behave appallingly. That means that 30,000, or 60%, behaved well. Seems like an overwhelming majority to me. Of course an old cynic like me would say that this was abusing the statistics but who cares about me when the truth can be so easily distorted to suit.
