Site background has gone all pink, was blue before. Either trying to soothe (@StevieBC) or the temp is heating up at TSFM πŸ™‚

I’m all for soothing Stevie, and it’s been hot over here with all the abuse I’m getting about the new site πŸ™‚
However, the previous site was also pink, in honour of the Earl of Rosebery, whose stadium of the same name, in a street of the same name in Oatlands hosted many a schools cup final, and whose colours of primrose and pink were worn around the turn of the last century (and more recently) by the Scottish national team.

Made this sticky in case anyone gets stuck.

Having a trial of the registration system tonight. The logins won’t work on this, so you have to register on the site.
To do that, click on the login link, and then hen you are taken to the login page, click register, add your name and email address, and you are done. You can choose any name you like, but get yours in first cause duplicates won’t be allowed πŸ™‚

If you have a Gravatar at that email address, it will be added to your posts and your post history will be transferred without reference to Mr Bryson πŸ™‚

We’ve had another Β£150 donated today, so the total is now at Β£460. Thanks for that. I think we should reach our target by the end of the month.

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.
