I received a reply from Show Racism The Red Card

Thank you for your email.

Racism and sectarianism is unacceptable in all aspects of society, including football, and we will continue to campaign and educate against such behaviour. We work proactively across Scotland with young people and adults to promote our anti-racism / anti-sectarianism message and the dangers of racism / sectarianism. Scottish Premier League clubs and Scottish Football League clubs are major supporters of the campaign and work closely with us on our events at their clubs promoting equality and respect, they have participated in our annual Fortnight of Action taking red card anti-racism / anti-sectarianism action at games the last two weekends to support and promote our campaign messages. Therefore, it is really disappointing at one of the fixtures where our anti-racism / anti-sectarianism messages were being supported and promoted that fans were heard singing racist / sectarian songs.

When racist / sectarian incidents are thought to have occurred at football matches we liaise closely with football authorities and clubs, and are proactive in promoting our strong anti racism / anti-sectarianism stance in the media. Unfortunately, we are not a policy making body, we are an educational charity, therefore, if you would like to make a formal complaint you would need to contact the Scottish Football authorities and/or the Police.

If I can be any further assistance to you please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards

So no public condemnation then.
Disappointingly tame expressions of disappointment!

Three Shakes … and a Twist
The DR article which shows that (S)DM knew more about CW than he previously admitted has kicked into touch the “I was duped” defense.Not that contributors here and previously on RTC were duped for a moment!

Anyone who thinks that (S)DM would enter into a business transaction of such magnitude without knowing who he was dealing with is,with due respect to a previous thread regarding boats and yellow skinned fruit ,fresh off the Fyffes Frigate.

Not only would (S)DM know everthing about CW including which leg he put in his Yfrontss first, he would have known the last time he changed them too!

There is a loud BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! coming from the non articulate DR lorry as it reverses away from its sycophantic support of (S)DM and the question we must ask is Why now! Have they been tipped to the result of the FTT(T) and the possible criticisms of Murray. A publication that printed multiple Minty Moombean articles would look foolish in the extreme if it continued to do so now!

Of course the DR will claim that it was all over this story from the start! Unfortunately they are slightly more than a day late and a dollar short!

Well one bear’s convinced.From Rangers Rumours:

Charles Green was on with keys & Gray this morning.
Says there is no chance of this ever happening, in fact he came across rather well in everything he was asked.
This guy is the real deal & honest as the day is long we have the right man in charge, get behind him and the team.

Collated the SPL’s viewing figures for televised games so far this season and the viewing figures of matches they clashed with on other channels based on BARB top 10s (so if anything’s missing, blame them!)

Of the top 3 televised domestic games, two were Rangers games with the most watched game of the season so far being Celtic-Hearts.

Figures normally come out 8 days after the week has ended so, for last week, should be next Monday-ish and I will try to keep updated once new figures are available. Last week’s should be interesting just to see how many people watched Celtic vs Barca. The away game pulled in more viewers than Arsenal or Chelsea in that game week, so I’d expect that to have been the top rated CL game of the week on Sky (with more viewers than Man Utd).
The question re the two Celtic v Barca games that might qualify the viewing figures a little is how many neutrals were looking in to see Barcelona. How many non neutrals were looking in to see Celtic get going over. But hey! Thats what makes the CL such a financial succes!

I don’t think there’s one thing in that I would disagree with.

I would add one observation with regard social media, in particular who is now using it. What a lot of people perhaps didn’t realise is there is a huge variety of people now happy and willing to communicate via blogs, forums, facebook, twitter etc. What would previously have been the domain of only the younger element is now being used regularly by not only them but also older generations. Some people have grown up using these things and some come to them late.
I think the term is Silver Surfers

Re discussion on free tickets, money laundering et al!

Hypothetically speaking could a football club inflate its costs or reduce its apparent revenues by manipulating its tickets sales? VAT works by offsetting the the input tax generated by purchases against the output tax generated by sales. It is only the end customer who pays the full weight of the tax. Currently in most instances 20% of sale price. VAT is also a live tax with payments rebate claims submitted quarterly. In certain circumstances this could initialy be implemented at the insistance of the VAT Office on a monthly basis. Circumstances could include a new company without credit facility working in high volumes of cash.

The VAT due is not calculated on the volume of items sold but on the revenue generated. So by supressing the this revenue the trader reduces his output tax VAT liability. At the same time inflating VAT rated costs increases the input tax rebate that can be offset.

The question is by how much can one “inflate” costs (stewards,police hospitality) and “reduce” revenues (giving out “free” tickets) before arousing suspicion. Slowly slowly catchy monkey is normal rule of thumb. Getting this balance wrong is what normally raises the suspicion of the authorities.

So hypotheticaly could “papering the house” as its known be used to defraud the revenue in this manner?
