All the best with the social event tonight.
Is there any chance of providing photos or podcast after ? Put some faces / voices to names, if agreeable.
Re: the rugby controversy.
As a kid at school I was forced to play rugby for 6 years, and whilst I enjoyed it, my first love was footie. It was only when weekend kick-off times started to clash that my Dad asked the Headie to excuse me from rugby: he was told I either played rugby, as per the school rules…or I find another school ! Such enlightened times then…not ! 
But what has stuck with me all these years was an appreciation of what a proper, true team game rugby is, and prima donnas are not suffered. Playing in freezing mud was character building and I also liked the etiquette that even if your own team is humped at home, you still formed 2 lines to clap your opponents off the field.  And then you had tea and cakes together after the match.  Very civilised.
Over the last 3 years I have been shocked at the exposure of the level of corruption in Scottish football, and hope to God that rugby never falls that far.

The Case for a New SFA.
The Clumpany’s latest blog is a good read, and about Doncaster in particular.
Reading the legally qualified Doncaster’s comments flagged up parallels in my head with the legally qualified Hillary Clinton’s public utterances.
Both confidently mouth off in public about their own view of the world from within the safety of their own wee bubble: no mistakes admitted, no apologies given, no self-awareness – and how dare you question my competence / veracity / etc…  
Doncaster must be in line for another SPFL bonus after this latest public performance.  08

“In a statement, Fifpro said, “A clean break from the past is essential for Fifa to climb out of the toxic pit which continues to produce serious accusations of corrupt behaviour on almost a daily basis. At the same time, there is no doubt the present mayhem has left Fifa morally bankrupt.” (Fifpro is the global players’s union rather than a video game, as I first thought.)
So that would be the generally pampered, self-indulgent, over-paid players – with their dodgy agents – insisting that FIFA cleans up its act ?!
World football / European football is really a joke now.
The paying punters saw through this shambles many years ago – especially wrt FIFA.  
And in addition to implementing proper governance with new faces, at some point there has to be a major correction in players’ wages – and ticket prices – before it’s all too late, IMO.
The problems associated with corrupt football governance – e.g. at FIFA, UEFA or the SFA – will be irrelevant if nobody is paying to watch football in the future.

Good to see the social event went well, and am sure that many, like myself, would love to be able to attend future events.
And for those who left early…did BP give you any homework ?! 09
And my valuable contribution for today is: where’s Waldo…I mean, where’s King ?
If I was a TRFC ST holder – or even a slightly interested SFA blazer – I would be very keen to know where he is and what he is doing with respect to steadying the Ibrox ship.
Doesn’t seem to be much interest currently in the SMSM either ?
Have they all just got fed up with King and and his own ‘moonbeams’, [(c) Minty] ?

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
