Comment on Towards a More Professional SFA by rougvielovesthejungle.

So much stuff going on with RIFC and TRFC at the moment so I was looking forward to see the MD, Stewart Robertson’ , interview on Sky Sports yesterday. Surely an opportunity to ask some searching questions one would think?!

Au contraire, what we got was an interview Rangers media would have been proud of. The smile on the boys face was reminiscent of Comical Ali at his finest as he fielded questions on the identity of the new assistant assistant manager. 

Are Rangers* fans happy with this standard of journalism on a week when 3 directors have resigned and the proverbial is arguably closer to the fan than it ever has been in the new clubs short existence?

Towards a More Professional SFA
There’s a narrative being crafted here and it’s definitely one of a profitable club being hamstrung by a company riddled with debt.

The story will be of a club that has sound governance and that is striving to break even but that is powerless to the historical (all 5 years of it) mismanagement of the company.

Once again it will be portrayed as all Big Mikes fault. After 5 years of this Traynor PR p1sh, I reckon I could craft some stories for him myself!

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Radio Scotland were asking for sporting highlights of the year tonight.

Hats off / chapeau to the practical joker who succeeded in getting this one read out – ‘Rangers scoring the winner at Partick Thistle in April, with the crowd going bezerk, and the team securing a return to Europe’

Added irony was thrown in by Kenny McIntyre who read it out without any irony!

This was immediately followed by another highlight which was Derek McInnes saying thanks but no thanks to Rangers.

The producers are clearly trying to lead McIntrye towards comedy to get some listeners back.

Who Is Conning Whom?
So we’ve now had about ten hours to digest the belter of a statement from Dave King & co. last night. Their arrogance clearly knows no bounds.

Anyway, if only wee Stevie in IT was a Dons fan – he might have chosen to edit the statement before publication. Something along the lines of;

‘We endorse that position because moving to a brand new club like The Rangers is a big step with concomitant (09) risk, driven by the unrealistic expectations of the senior management and the fans, and the non existent resources available to meet such expectation’

Okay, it’s maybe not nearly as amusing as the original statement, but it’s definitely 99.9% (©Kris Boyd) more accurate.

Time to Ditch the Geek Show
Who on earth, at the BBC, deemed it appropriate to commission a full interview with Graeme Souness? 

His relevance and his personal interest in todays game in Scotland is negligible.

The only thing Graeme Souness is interested in is Graeme Souness!

The only pertinent questions that could be asked of him are the circumstances of his EBT, and how David Murray conducted his cheating in Scottish football through the late 80’s and early 90’s (pre EBT’s) but somehow I think these are areas the BBC won’t venture towards!

Time to Ditch the Geek Show
A quiet weekend for Dons fans like myself but I’m sure we will all be hoping Motherwell cheer up a rather bleak Sunday in the north east today.

The highlight of my sporting weekend actually arrived early – Friday morning, driving to work to be precise. Super salary McCoist happened to be on Talksport radio with Alan Brazil and for some reason they started talking about car boot sales. Alan enquiries of Ally, ‘have you ever been to a car boot sale?’, to which Ally says no but then Brazil comes in with ‘I thought that would have been right up your street – all that tax free cash in the sky rocket!’

This was followed by a lovely moment of radio silence as the producer tried to get some impromptu adverts on.

From Mark Daly’s BBC documentary, there were 15 EBT recipients never identified. I wonder if Ally had his nose in the trough too?!

The Vice Closes
So having long since given up on the SFA ever doing the right thing or the ‘national’ broadcaster ever providing some fair and balanced coverage of the national game, at about 3.45pm yesterday, I put it on, for 5 mins,  purely to get the half time score at Murrayfield.

Was Chick Young on level 5 funded or tax payer funded commission to state ‘it’s armed forces day today at Ibrox’?! He must have said it about 5 times in his HT ‘analysis’ before I gave up on finding out the Dons score. 

And on this armed forces day nonsense,  who covers the costs of this? Tax payer, club or company? Surely a club/company that requires £4million by month end can’t be throwing money at this?

With regards to Stewart Milne, Bill1903, he has always been out of touch with his own supporters, but appears now to have taken it to an entirely new level.
