There have been a few posts bemoaning the glee adopted by some contributors regarding the Rangers -Sevco farrago. I seem to have missed something here. By all means lets have measured well informed & accurate posts, but the contract entered into by all (most) football fans is the expression of Schadenfreude.
Cosgrove & Cowan pride themselves on being β€œpetty & ill informed” & yet ironically Cosgrove is also a highly respected thinker & commentator regarding our ailing game. Surely that duality is not out of place here.

Apples and pears Mac – until we are all comfortable with the same treatment for all of our clubs – which is what Cosgrove and Cowan do well and equitably.

The rush to outrage when Celtic are slighted on here is usually led by the very same people who ridicule Rangers and cast their fans as stereotypes.

Contrived pettiness is fine as long as people on the end of it get some respite and a chance to have the same laugh at the expense of others. Right now we don’t see many Rangers fans on here. How many Celtic fans would survive the same treatment?

Before I don my flame retardant underthingies, I know that the huge majority of Celtic fans on here eschew te systematic derision of Rangers and their fans.

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 β€˜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 πŸ™‚

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 …

Rangers were not the lender. The Sub-Trusts, into which Rangers made a contribution via an EBT, are the β€œlender”. 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.
