Would it be the case that, if the SPL judgement goes against RFC and if enough domestic results are retrospectively amended to 3-0 defeats, by not winning trophies or sufficient SPL points, would RFC themselves be considered (again, retrospectively), “ineligible” for UEFA competitions the following season? Is that a can of worms UEFA want to open?
Are the SFA only concerned with the SPL or are they to look at Scottish Cup results (either following the SPL lead or through their own investigations)? Similarly, what is the SFL view regarding the League Cup?
All irrelevant, of course, if they’ve done everything in accordance with all the relevant rules.

Equity for Clowns? Just had a flashback :-


OT but there was one for bluenose.com – a Canadian firm. I think they are now bluenoseaccounting.com and provide –
Business Planning and Forecasting
Personal and Corporate Taxation

As has been said many times, “You couldn’t make it up”.

I think the name, in this case, comes from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluenose

On a day when the BBC look like having to pay out to Lord MacAlpine or face legal action and his solicitors are talking about going after folk on twitter you would have thought the Bears on RM may have been more careful, given their track record, about what they say and do.

They also fail to act in accordance with the guidance given at the top of their message board

“Jadams posted the following a while ago, recent events mean I’m posting it again. Without going into detail, suffice to say the police (specifically FoCUS) are paying close attention to posts on RM and are likely to ask for personal details of anyone making threats in posts. We cannot monitor every post, please be aware you can be held responsible for what you post. If you see a post that could be interpreted as a threat, or are concerned about something you’ve posted, please alert the moderator/admin team.

The rules are here, please read them and protect yourselves by posting within the law

If you are in anyway unsure of what you can and cannot say, or what details RM may have to provide to police, please PM one of the moderator/admin team.”


Interesting that they don’t make it clear that threatening posts are completely unacceptable. Instead it’s more a case of “be careful you don’t get caught”. Just wrong.

My ears are bleeding listening to SSB
The panel are really missing the ‘old firm’ games as are most Celtic fans etc etc
How do these muppets get a gig?


By virtue of people still tuning in to them?

On the PP from CG, RFC have gone from being an institution to a franchise.

“Rapid revenue growth over coming years” – the technical detail is bewildering isn’t it? With such growth, why the need to float?

Slide 20 – “Possible..Potential..May..Could..” Where do I sign?

Any membership of secret organisations must be resigned and anybody found to be disregarding this edict, removed from office immediately.

An admirable suggestion but I can’t see how that would work. The SFA test would involved the question “Are you a member of a secret organisation?”‘, to which the answer would always be “no” (although that’s probably debatable). The subject may be able to produce a letter from the organisation they definitely weren’t a member of, confirming the same (which may, helpfully, include the date they absolutely didn’t join). If this later proved to be (I believe the current word is) “inaccurate”, then the Bryson rule would apply. I think that’s where we’re up to in this nonsense.

Is it possible Mr King repeatedly “jets in” to Glasgow simply to reduce his tax liability in South Africa? Even better if he does it publicly and takes back a Daily Record article of said “jetting in” as evidence of where he’s been. All this ‘Rangers’ talk could be just a smokescreen.

Thanks, LTL (and Easyjambo, earlier). I attracted a lot of TDs for my (mainly rhetorical) question so can only assume folk thought I was questioning John’s work, which was certainly not where I was coming from. It was just my clumsy way of paying tribute. I know I wouldn’t be able to produce what amounted to transcripts of proceedings with additional, helpful comments – not with my handwriting and attention span. I can’t help thinking that if this kind of detail was available at the FTT, our collective flabber might not have been quite so gasted at the outcome. Thanks to everyone who took the time to attend and report back.

I’m a D but verging on double D these days.

“… I suspect he may be doing a “Craigy” whilst scribbling for effect…”
Cross my heart and hope to die, scouts’ honour, no electrical or mechanical gizmos or gadgets, morse code, carrier pigeons or woolly bees have been employed in my reporting from the UTTT! Only my pen and Poundland £1 A4 wide-ruled refill pad! And a strong desire not to fall asleep from boredom, by keeping busy!

Didn’t doubt it for a moment, John. I seem to have acquired several TDs I hadn’t bargained on but glad you were on the same benign wavelength. Sir, I salute your indefatigability (and eye for a stationery bargain).
