Comment on The Offline Game by Giovanni.

The actions of the Guardian are reminiscent of other instances I’ve encountered where the “powers that be” are the UK security services in their various guises. They probably advised the Guardian executives that “armageddon” might ensue from the publication of such an advert. 
We are all aware of the actions of certain groups and as an indicator I give you the photograph recently published on Mr Mac Gilloa Bhain’s blog which was taken from the Belfast Telegraph and the emblem on the individual’s replica top.
I’m becoming more and more convinced that this “armageddon” is what is being used to suppress a lot of our aims.

I thought the “onerous retail deal” predated Mr Llambias and went back to the Charles Green days. I am not certain however.

If I remember correctly RIFC/TRFC regained control the Intellectual Property rights back in early January. We’ve been repeatedly told that control of the retail sales is vital for RIFC/TRFC, so why has it taken so long for the “loophole” to be discovered? I believe that an expert in commercial contracts would be able to find such a flaw, in a matter of days or even hours, so why the four month delay?

If it has taken four months the bill for hiring such expertise would be considerable.

Having read and re-read the various UEFA rules and the arguments put forward by The Lawman on the Bears’ Den and by others on this site together with the comments on the John James site I can categorically state that I am no nearer deciding who is right or wrong. The principal cause is probably my lack of any legal training. 
However if, as claimed by The Lawman, the TOG assertions are easily refuted, why has the SFA not done precisely that. Why the “no comment”? 

That is more telling imho than any argument put forward by The Lawman.

Be surprised if the larger part of the loans is converted to shares.
Control of a structurally insolvent company lies not in virtually worthless shares, but with the major creditors who will retain control when the shareholders are all stiffed.
Going to happen.

———-
Whilst I’m loathe to disagree with Trisidium I cannot see ANY part of the loans being converted for the reason he states but why the allotment of shares announcement?

There has to be something going behind the scenes that I cannot deduce. Have they found a mug, sorry buyer, for the shares and the conversion gives the chose few larger slices of the pot of gold? Doubtful I know.


Who Is Conning Whom?
I note that JJ (sitonfence) is breathtakingly announcing that one of his impeccable sources tells him that Club 1872 bought shares from Mike Ashley for 28p. Unfortunately, in one of its many announcements, the Rangers Observer told us on June 23rd 2017 that the price was 27.5p.  I regard the Rangers Observer as a fully fledged Jim Traynor mouthpiece so I assume it is correct. 

Please keep up JJ.

Prior to the release of the accounts of RIFC later his month I though I’d re-apprise myself of the last couple of years accounts. However on the company website the previous accounts have all disappeared except for the unaudited work of fiction from this summer,
 
 
Luckily I retrieved what I wanted from the good old web-archive. I’m assuming this is just a IT glitch rather than something untoward happening.

I fail to understand how, over a ten year period, nobody involved in the SFA player registration process (Bryson S ?) could not spot that the galacticos being employed by Rangers must have been on considerably less wages than their Celtic equivalents and possibly even less than the mere mortals employed by other SPL teams. 
 
Every year for ten years and nobody noticed this glaring anomaly? Surely someone would ask what additional incentive was being offered. Although I’ve never worked for such an illustrious organisation I doubt that a world class breakfast would be enough to sway me.
 
Yet we are lead to believe, from the evidence submitted to the LNS commission, that they only became aware of this when Rangers hit the financial buffers.
 
 
Now I realise, that being a mere Stenny supporter, that I am not au fait with the complexities of player registration, but come on!

Knowing Mr Mac Giolla Bháin he doesn’t ask questions that he doesn’t already know the answers to. This should get interesting.
