I challenged him to suggest ways that the game in Scotland could be improved without the O*d F**m paradigm and he indicated that he couldn’t see another way. It is the moneyspinning game(for them) and raises the profile of the brand across the UK & beyond…….and he did not like my retort that doctors, nurses and the police wouldn’t agree with him 😥

My feeling is that this is a very accurate description of what our football has become to those down south. A sideshow. The EPL is the glittering carnival and Scotland provides the Bearded Lady, the geek, or some other Freak Show.

Sadly, after 100 years of proof that sectarianism pays, I find it difficult to argue with that charge.

English audiences enticed to come and watch the feral dogs at play to a backdrop of songs of hate, and the authorities in Scotland ever anxious, Uncle Tom-like, to ensure that it is provided at all costs.

Do we have so little respect for ourselves that we are happy to play the hillbillys?

Sadly yes.

New post up.

Lots of trouble with the site today. Lots of Far East traffic on the server – unrelated to any possible involvement from any un-named PR firm :mrgreen:

Will continue to work on it, but have a listen to the new Podcast (you can get it from the sidebar at the top of the page).

One of the other major difference then & now was that there is no ‘pass back’ allowed. This has drastically increased the pace of the game and requires keepers to play the ball with their feet.
That said, you can only do what you can, the fact is that both Clark & Foster’s achievements deserve credit in their own right. If it was easy everyone would be doing it!!

Bobby Clark also played at centre-half on several occasions when the Dons were stuck. Maybe one of the few ‘keepers who would have been comfortable with the no-pass back rule 🙂

Latest Podcast is awaiting our guest’s approval of the edit before publishing. Nothing untoward – just a courtesy we like to extend.

Also there is a new blog on the way about an initiative Auldheid has on the go on behalf of our community. That should be published in a day or so.
All in all then it will be a busy week for content …
… and there’s the UTT revving up …

Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?

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.
