Netting is used to prevent small objects from being accidentally (or deliberately) discarded. For example below TV gantries. It is also used to prevent birds from nesting. You can see it at grounds all over the country. It certainly isn’t used to catch falling structural members or cladding. 

I would not describe anything that would stop a chunk of roof from falling on top of spectators as ‘netting’. Such a thing would need to be a whole lot more robust than netting – and would perhaps be more expensive than a repair.

There may well be an issue with the roof at Ibrox, but I don’t think it’s one with H&S implications. I cannot conceive of a situation where either the TRFC board or Glasgow District Council would consciously put themselves on the line for the civil, criminal and professional repercussions that would come their way in the event of an accident due to something they had ignored – or even if someone goes into whistleblower mode. 

I think we are swimming up the same water pipe that leads to the church on Paisley Road West.

See what you’ve started? I must admit it is a bit of a shock to hear that Norman Tebbit bicycle economics is subscribed to by SFM-ers, but I am still with you on this one.

Taxation is necessary in a civilised society, the more progressive the taxation the more civilised the society. I must confess to be troubled by views which disagree with that. However, as StevieBC says, this is not a tax forum.

So we are imposing a 100% superlevy and immediate silent speech codes on the subject 21

I couldn’t agree more with your analysis and prognosis. Players who are involved in these schemes are legally responsible for what goes on in their name.

Where I think it is rather more nuanced is in the area of moral culpability, given that they often have limited resources in terms of understanding of these matters, and put their trust in the guys who talk them into decisions based not necessarily on the player’s own best interests, but on those of the adviser. 

Further, when it all comes apart at the pointy end of Hector’s stick, they are generally more than able to pay up what they are due. There are cases which fall between the cracks of that certainty though, and I do think that Windass is one of them.

Not the only one of course, but they don’t all get caught.

I suspect the TDs are not from SFM folk (remember the ratings are available to all manner of trolls). It is a disgusting world-view if made in earnest. A shocking way to score a point if not.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone noticed that Ernest no longer posts since we went to the trouble of creating a whole new thread for him?

Was pretty sure he wasn’t a troll too. Render me disappointed 🙂
