I agree with most of what you say but I’m not sure it’s a topic for debate on here.

Don’t take this the wrong way but your writing style is quite “abrasive” could you adjust the setting on your keyboard to “robust”.

=====================================================
Ditto for me bogs – agree with most. Disagree with NT in part – clearly some Celtic supporters using the site simply see this place as an extension of their club forums and somehow believe that it is their right to judge who is and isn’t acceptable. However, my experience is that most are concerned about Scottish football as a whole. The issues of consistent application of the rules, poisonous business practice in Scotland, compliant/inadequate MSM and football authorities matter to us all.

I think that NTs pushing for exactitude on the FPP test is entirely valid and that that sceptical approach should be applied as a matter of course. TSFM did this with CtH of course and, in my opinion, was right. I don’t know about others but it’s not clear to me yet whether CtH is a wonderful work of fiction, CW acolyte or a whistle-blower so scepticism rather than wishful-thinking endorsement should be applied. I don’t know what Greenockjack’s agenda is but it seems fair enough to question what value, if any, that CtH is adding.

To NT – your hissy fit’s a bit of a lengthy rant but understandable. Barca clearly has significant credit on the site due to quality of postings generally and longevity but I think he over-stepped the mark, which was out of character. TSFM was wrong to pull you up but it won’t stop me reading and posting and I hope it doesn’t stop you, and as far as I can see you’re not banned.

I am quite surprised at the tone in the emails and particularly some of CW’s comments as I had never ever seen any previous negative asides from him on sectarian-related issues.
====================================================
Ecobhoy, my reading of the email exhange is that JI and CW are mocking the afflicted (Bears in JI reference)for their sectarianism. Others who know the two individuals may know better.

jerfeelgood – you seem to be able to find things out – why does the Rangers website list directors as Smith, Mather, Stockbridge, Murray, Hart, Smart and Cartmell when The Rangers Football Club Limited’s directors are Charles Green and Brian Stockbridge?

I seem to recall that part of Dave King’s settlement with the South African Revenue Service was a  requirement that Mr King’s family repatriate business assets held overseas into South Africa. Has anyone any insight into how this sits with NOAL being BVI-based?

EJ, I’ve no cause to doubt you or Hearts directors or the company auditors. It’s a fact though that people will speculate on these matters, often getting things completely wrong, intentionally or simply through ignorance.

blu December 20, 2017 at 11:16 There is an element of truth in Tangoed’s assertion about the need for transparency though – I’m sure there’s plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback as to the identity of the mysterious benefactors. ===================== There is indeed plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback about the benefactor(s).
A couple of well informed posters have all but confirmed that the money has come from partners in an Edinburgh investment company.

EJ,
I’m sure that you and others closer to the club will have a very good idea who these people are but as long as the club is asked to keep their identities private there will be speculation and aspersions cast from the east of Edinburgh and further afield.

I’ll decline from commenting further, the majority of members here seem to think it is acceptable to conjecture that Hearts are being funded by the proceeds of crime.

For the avoidance of doubt Homunculus, I agree with your challenge to Tangoed – his subsequent response confirms it is simple speculation, possibly mischievous. My question was more focused on what might be considered as money laundering, tangential and less important than your challenge.

Homunculus, I don’t think that money laundering was referred to by Tangoed, no doubt they’ll respond to fully explain.
