As I have commented before, I think it would be a disaster for football across the UK, if the Ashley experiment is allowed to escape from the lab!

The BBC needs to get its act together. It has a duty to be factually correct, and not to allow itself to be used as a PR organ for a particular faction, which it appears has happened in this case.

Completely agree.

On another note, I am confused as to what criteria BBC Scotland used tonight when selecting footage for the the share suspension story, in particular why film of the crowd making nazi salutes was chosen.

I think even top players are typically limited to a 5 year contract, so up to 2020.
So, there should be time to adapt contracts to accommodate the WC in Qatar and to deal with any ramifications to the domestic league players’ remuneration.

Very good point, I hadn’t considered that. Let’s hope the parasites (agents) do not hinder that.

But are we missing something here ?

You would think FIFA would try to at least ‘consider’ leagues’ arguments, [and then dismiss them further down the line of course.]
But FIFA seems to be deliberately antagonistic, [and running out of time].

Does FIFA want to create so much fuss that Qatar loses the WC ?
i.e. FIFA did everything it could, but some of the top national leagues simply refused to comply ?
i.e. it wisnae oor fault ?!

There must some logic behind this latest Blatter PR mess…?

Perhaps they are going with the “you have (had) plenty of time” line. It’s easy to speculate on the prospect of the WC being moved and various backhanders being exposed as a threat but maybe it’s simply the complete lack of consideration of the implications on FIFA’s part (see original summer schedule).

And the third highest selling Sunday paper is ‘The Sunday Post’ at 144K !

Even as a kid, apart from Oor Willie and The Broons, I couldn’t be bothered reading the ‘stories’.

They usually started with; “Wee Jeanie down the road…”, and invariably each article finished with an exclamation mark !

Has my memory been unkind to The Post: is it still mince ?

You’re summary of the stories made me laugh.

Sadly (?) my parents still receive their weekly copy so I have had the misfortune of having had nothing else to read.

If anything it has got worse.

I am reminded of a sketch from Scotch and Wry where Rikki Fulton walks into the newsagents and asks for a variety of top shelf material, brazen as you like, then whispers in an embarrassed tone “and the Sunday Post”.

The Offline Game
Dropped in to see the latest thoughts on SFM and nearly had a fit when the banner across the top of the page read “Over 200 documents available”.  I thought the Panama papers, Charlotte Fakes’ USB drives, and an SFA laptop had been hooked up to SFM.Imagine my disappointment when I realised I’d misread it and it was an advert for “Over 200 documentaries”.

It’s a good time to be an Ayr United fan. We sit proudly at the top of Division 1 and could be heading back to our rightful place (the Championship). If things go the right way, we could win the 2002 League Cup which we were cheated out of 4-0. If only the Ayrshire Cup was still on the go, we might be heading for a glorious treble!

It could have been worse.  So much worse.  Had Murray been given the green light in Ayr we could have been sitting very uncomfortably on the outside of all this looking out …

Redistribution of Football Income – The Human Dilemma
Apologies if this has been posted before. I’ve not been able to dip in and out of the blog for a while now.

Some time ago someone mentioned a possible consultation on extensions to the Freedom of Information Scotland Act. By chance I’ve just seen that this has been open since June (!) but closes tomorrow.

I’ve not had time to read the document but I thought I would share in case anyone wishes to suggest that transparency in our ‘national game’ is something that should extend the Act to the SFA.

On football’s misguided battle against illegal streaming

There are some relevant points in there about offering a package from source that hasn’t been wrapped up in annual bloated subscriptions that come with useless guff.

If you look at NFL Gamepass and Watch AFL those are models that will put each and every game you want in HD when you want or are able to watch it with a lot more content. During the seasons you would struggle to watch every game, show and documentary. Never mind the historical stuff. I don’t think the costs are unreasonable either yet people still complain that it costs money.

Re the article above, saying that you “like” to do something and therefore “have to be illegal” is a stretch of logic on a Brysonesque level.
