Comment on The Immortality Project by RyanGosling.

Jean – that’s kind of what I was getting at. The MSM (outside of comments sections) doesn’t allow dialogue. Forums such as this and Twitter do. Hence my original question. And TSFM kind of summed up what I was getting at more, in that Charlotte’s reach was beyond just the Twitter feed. But I don’t want to labour the point and clog up the forum any more – I’ll respond to anything more directed at me on this but won’t raise anything more as I believe I’ve now said my piece – posed a question, had better information provided to me, agreed with it to a major extent.

An underlying point though is that MSM rules / laws, even excusing incompetency, mean that we’ll never get the info from the MSM that we got from Charlotte. And from here, and loads of other forums. People can draw their own conclusions as to what has the most value, but even as a Rangers fan joining in what is widely held among “ra peepil” (to use a term from here!) to be a bit of a Celtic forum, I log on here during each day to get a handle on what’s happening in the Rangers world, not the Daily Record or the Sun. And not Rangers Media, which unfortunately I find that my IQ is great enough that I find it hard to comprehend.

Zilch, there were two protests during the game yesterday, a number of banners on display and chants of “sack the board” took place several times. I think there’s a lot of awareness that all is not well.

I’d differ with you on that one Mrs Peacock because the Co-op aren’t really “too big to fail”. I doubt they’d get significant state support. And the (completely useless) rating agencies support that viewpoint.

There’s been so much speculation here. I’d just absolutely love to see these mythical accounts. And a complete list of shareholders. And until then, I’ll be entirely sceptical of what’s going on at Ibrox. I’d be going too far to say I enjoy all the speculation here about what’s happening financially at Rangers, but it is certainly worthwhile to read all the theories here, especially given that many of them come from a Celtic background; worst case scenarios are good things to know. They help to keep one informed. Keep it up and then if the accounts finally come out we can have a right good analysis of them.

Incidentally, with regards to the Celtic Co-op bank thing, my two cents – its quite clear that Celtic have an unused overdraft facility with the Co-op and nothing more, what may be known to the bank as an undrawn commitment. The only note of caution I’d sound to Celtic in this regard is that if they ever plan to utilise this facility in the ordinary BAU course of a season, they should be wary given the financial state of the Co-op that the facility may be pulled at short notice, or the terms changed. If I were them, I’d bank with a more stable entity.

Happy new year one and all xxx

Congratulations to the Scotland team tonight for a great result, looked like a goal would never come due to that intrepid crossbar but it’s great to see a Scotland side look as accomplished as we have recently. Just think where we’d be if we’d kept our concentration in the last minute against England!

”Now on what is objectionable to others: songs that are inward celebrating might cause offence to others but they are the ones taking offence, it is not being offered to or aimed at them. It is something intolerant in them that sparks the offence taken.”

By your criteria above, it would be perfectly acceptable for a group of fans to turn up at a football ground singing “Ode to Isis” and as long as it was inward looking, it would be the fault of the rest of the crowd if they were offended. 

I usually read your posts with interest and respect your views, but I find this stance ridiculous.

Upthehoops, thanks for your response. I’ve recognised my club’s weaknesses on here many times, but the justification given for support of clubs in Europe here is always that they are the Scottish representatives, which Rangers were. You can’t claim (and I don’t mean you particularly) to support the Scottish representatives but then exclude some because they aren’t financially well managed. Rangers mk II have been run at a loss but have broken no rules, and are not the first club in Scotland or in Europe to have been run at a loss. Again, I have been a vocal critic on here of the Rangers administration, but if people are on here claiming to support the Scottish representatives but making an exception for Rangers then I say they are hypocrites.

Jimbo you were not as vocal in your support for Scottish representation in Europe when Rangers were (briefly) involved. Neither was anyone else here, somewhat disappointingly.
