The Rangers saga as it happened…

My thoughts are that, of all the avenues by which a top club gets funds in the door, player transfers are the only avenue which other clubs could have a bearing on. All the other funds come from (in some way) the indigenous fans or the club itself.

Iam a Hearts fan – I watched the Celtic game on TV last night, just as I watched some other Champions league football the previous night. I also will watch our game tonight and no doubt some of the other Europa football that is on.

My audience viewing contributes to the overall viewing figures and some proportion of the UEFA payment monies is calculated in proportion to national population/audience numbers, so in a minor way all non-Celtic fans who watch Champions league football on Tevelsion this season are indirectly contributing towards the payment Celtic will eventually receive from UEFA from TV & Sponsors/Advertisers.

Just puting that thought out there. Lots of us like to watch football on TV, especially the big matches even if our own club isn’t directly involved. We are contributing too, but in this instance it is Celtic who will derive almost all of the benefit.

SPL statement: Celtic qualifying to group stage – UEFA will give an additional £1 million to SPL – this will be shared by other 11 SPL clubs

Is there any original source for this claim? If true a suprising albeit welcome infusion of extra funds to avert “armageddon” although the amount seems to be rather small & aribitary in relation to the overall amounts to be paid out (has this happened before?) and a bit reminiscent of the rich throwing some crumbs from their plates for the poor…………..

Miki – Campbell Ogilvie is still there because nobody we know of, not from Celtic, Raith Rovers, Hearts, Clyde or anybody else that Iam aware of has demanded that he resign or motioned for this to happen?

I’ve seen people within football ie some SFL clubs call for the removal of Regan & Doncaster but they all remain strangely silent on Ogilvie ………why?

Perhaps now is not the time – perhaps that will come later after the FTT results or BDO findings?

Everything Has Changed
Like the initial FTT result this fudge is simply baffling and morally wrong. Every human being with an ounce of integrity knows judgement is simply wrong and no justice has been served by Lord Nimmo-Smith.

A disgrace it really is.

The Real Battle Begins?
Radio Clyde SSB? Can’t believe we are still debating that shows ‘merits’ ffs it’s car crash radio, imo there is nothing about that show that isn’t moronic, listen at your peril but if you get annoyed by it then basically it’s your own fault for listening, change the dial!

The Real Battle Begins?
Since you asked the current situation at Tynecastle is i believe as follows;
1. Hearts have agreed an extension and 2 part payment plan on the 450k small tax bill due. This is due to be paid by 3rd december and is dependant on guaranteed income Hearts will receive from 300k still due from Rangers as payment for David Templeton, i hope we have an arrestment order ready to secure these funds as obviously any delays could have critical impact, and also the gate share money and split of TV money that Hearts will receive from this weekends live Scottish Cup derby with Hibs.
2. At last reports over 600k funds had been raised by fans in shares, merchandising and match tickets.
3. The players and staff have agreed a temporary deferment of wages, whether this will trigger further SPL sanctions or censure remains to be seen.
4. I believe there has been some hearing thus far of the Tax Tribunal for the disputed 1.75M Big Tax Case, i don’t know if the hearing is ongoing, delayed or being negotiated/settled however I was informed that a small but important breakthrough had been established and this would improve Hearts prospects.
Forgive me if any of this is inaccurate but it is my summary of current events as best i understand them. 🙂

Why the Beast of Armageddon Failed to Show?
what kind of society are we living in where rtc blog has to be erased from existance?
Will this blog be next?
Will the vested monied interests and their legal and media whores seek to suppress all attempts of those seeking to uncover truth?

Why the Beast of Armageddon Failed to Show?
who decides the editorial content of radio scotland sport fooball productions? It seems that latterly Stuart and Tam are the anti-dote to Jabba and Chick however Jabba is still given far more airtime to proffer his sermons. Who decides such things?
Regards Tom English he’d do better starting his own blog and trying to find some audience and relevance as newspapers like his own are dying and the churnalist propaganda they promote so easily exposed as lies or mistruths by blogs like this one and previously RTC.
