@tayred – there are aspects of Rugby administration that are just as bent as Football.  Tier 2 nations hammered, who cares?  Irish player treated favourably, situation normal.  It’s just a coincidence that all the main governing bodies are based in Dublin.  Scotland?  Just there to make up the numbers, treat as per Tier 2 nations.

Any suggestion that Joubert’s call was in any way “a fix” is uncalled for IMHO.

Refereeing is a difficult job and that passage of play was chaotic. He made a bad call and the TMO protocols didn’t allow him to review it despite the fact that he’s seen it on the big screen and knows that it’s wrong (which is quite perverse really) .

Had the correct decision been made we were far from home and dry anyway. It would have been an Australian scrum in a dangerous position. The obvious play is a very kickable drop goal. Further, any scrum penalty is going to be just as easy as the one that was awarded.

The real issue is that Scotland, having gone ahead with 5 minutes to play did not have the composure or experience to run down the clock. In recent years we have rarely been in that position. There were at least three cock ups of our own in that period, some of which were down to choosing low percentage plays instead of the safe option. It was in our own hands and we blew it (although it’s nice to have a scapegoat and claim a moral victory).


The Case for a New SFA.

From what I understand Green has raised his case against RIFCplc.
The alleged offenses revolve around a set of events that started before Sevco 5088 or Sevco Scotland/TRFC Ltd came into existence. These include the ‘switcheroo’ and the setting up of ‘the club’.
The IPO then resulted in the setting up of the ‘holding company’ Plc so most or perhaps all of the alleged offences may have occurred prior to the Plc coming into existence

Not sure that is incompatible with his case being against RIFC Plc.
The alleged offences involving Green appear to start with the setting up of the new club i.e. Sevco Scotland.  If RIFC happens to be the appropriate legal entity (with the liability for his legal costs) now due to subsequent restructuring of group companies then it doesn’t matter that it didn’t exist at the beginning of the sequence of events.

A VAT Escrow Account is…1. A metaphor for ‘putting aside the VAT you’ve collected on behalf of HMRC and not spending it on running costs’
2. A loose use of language, but intending to convey the same meaning as no.1 above
======================================
Tbh that’a how I interpreted it.  

I’m assuming that JJ is not a member of the same institute as Paul Murray (and myself).

Also regarding McInnes, bear in mind that he turned down an offer from Sunderland this summer.  He would have had a handsome salary and transfer money to spend, but just didn’t fancy it.  As I said, no daft.

Surely there wouldn’t be any deal other than
“If someone wants to employ our manager, who has recently signed a new contract then they will have to pay us £1m (or whatever) to break that contract. Then he is free to do what he wants”
Given that Aberdeen were second in the league and in both cups last year, they cannot in a hurry to get rid of him.
Or are they, maybe an Aberdeen fan could enlighten us.

I’m sure it comes as no great surprise that McInnes is immensely popular with the Aberdeen support, and it’s about more than just getting the first team knocked into competitive shape but also other aspects of the Club, top to bottom. Overall the Club is in much better shape after a series of terrible managers and mismanagement at the Club for many years. 

Therefore, it will also come as no surprise that Milne will be hung drawn and quartered if he lets McInnes go without a fight, especially to “them”.  Obviously we can’t do anything if they throw the required level of compensation at it but anything less will be unacceptable. 

That said, McInnes is not daft. He’s onto a good thing at Aberdeen and he surely knows that Sevco is a basket case.  The treatment of Warburton and Caixinha cannot have gone unnoticed.  I’d be surprised if he jumps ship for anything less than a Premiership Club.

What a shock, Ryan Jack failed to grab a hold of the game.  Sat too deep it seems,  well duh.  There’s a reason that very few tears were shed in the North East when he didn’t sign a new deal.

@Jimbo – surely you mean the best Scottish export since whisky?  Rather than whiskey!!!
