Jim White’s interview was one of two things :

(i) a jaw-droppingly incompetent piece of journalism with zero hard hitting questioning of a convicted criminal (who gloried in showing off his ill-gotten gains) and who has failed to live up to promises made to shareholders and fans

(ii) a pure PR puff piece for a convicted criminal, etc , etc..

Whichever, JW and his Sky editor should be ashamed and embarrassed at this interview. An insult to our intelligence.

Scottish Football needs proper journalism.

Ryan – re the guest speaker : please, please make it DCK with a Q&A afterwards!

Scottish Football needs a strong Arbroath and a clever ICT.


Why We Need to Change
“On a human level the treatment she received was utterly repugnant and a damning indictment of the character of those with whom she had only just climbed into bed.”

In the light of a previous rumour, I hope that is not the writer’s idea of being clever.

Scottish Football needs a strong Arbroath.

Competition watchdog to probe Rangers and retailers over replica kits

By Henry Saker-Clark, PA City Reporter

1 hour ago

The UK competition watchdog has launched an investigation into Rangers FC and sportswear retailers over the price of replica football kits.

On Wednesday, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) confirmed it has opened an initial inquiry into potential “anti-competitive behaviour”.

It said it is probing Rangers and Hummel, which manufactures the club’s kit, as well as retailers Greaves Sports and JD Sports.

The investigation process, which is expected to take six months, will look into suspected breaches of competition law, it said.

The regulator said: “At this stage the CMA believes that it has reasonable grounds to suspect one or more breaches of competition law.

Re the accounts – page 46 has an interesting entry on a "debt for £2.278M due from a single debtor" . Is this a claim against Big Mike? Someone else? £2.278M is a lot of tat if that is what it relates to….

Hope they are right about it being recoverable.

If it's not recoverable then does their loss for the year go up to £19.74M, almost double the previous year (£11.277M)?

A slightly concerning direction of travel especially in today's pandemic and economic environment.

On the brighter side are they not now the world leaders in the production of confetti? ūüôā

Time for an SFM petition open to any other stakeholders to join?

"Scottish football supporters have no confidence in the SFA and SPFL."

Scottish Football needs to register dissatisfaction with the football authorities at this critical time.

I believe the basic rule with any contract is that if there is an area of dubiety then it should be read to favour the party which did not draw up the agreement.

That could however just be something I got into my head, I have no way of substantiating it whatsoever. 

It might be called contra proferentem.

==================================

I’m with you on this Homunculus.

The¬†Competition and Markets Authority¬†might have something to say about that clause too.¬† ¬†https://www.coronavirus-business-complaint.service.gov.uk/¬† ¬† (“Report a business behaving unfairly during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak”)

Rangers* will have insurance to cover it anyway. Won’t they?

…………..
Celtic and the ibrox club’s terms and conditions.
https://twitter.com/JBLuvsCeltic/status/1262453415898001408/photo/1
Celtic. If the club is umable to complete a match fixture to provide a result for the purpouse of the football authorities due to causes beyond the control of the club,and the match fixture is not re-scheduled, the holder will be compensated for any corresponding reduction in services.
…..
The ibrox club. The club cannot eccept any liability for any expense incurred even in the event that the match is cancelled.

=========================================

C1, I saw and commented on the Rangers* clause some time back. I’m not a lawyer but it didn’t seem to me to be a clear cut statement that there would be no refund if matches were cancelled. What it did say was that they accepted no responsibility for any “expense¬†incurred even in the event that the match was cancelled’.

Does that imply that they DO have responsibility for a partial refund of the season ticket? If not, why not also make that crystal clear in the same clause?

Rangers*¬†only appear to exclude a responsibility to cover an expense¬†incurred. There was no definition of ‘expense’ or ‘expense incurred’¬†in the passage I saw. Does ‘expense¬†incurred’ include the cost of the ticket? Is the “expense incurred” the costs¬†resultant on the changed match timing or cancellation?¬†Arguable I suspect – any legal precedent?

The Celtic* clause covering this seems¬†fairly clear to me. “If the Club is unable to complete a match fixture to provide a result for the purposes of the football authorities due to causes beyond the control of the Club, and that match fixture is not re-scheduled, the Holder will be compensated for any corresponding¬†reduction in services.”¬†

For reasons beyond Celtic’s control the matches cannot be completed and are not being re-scheduled =¬†a refund.

Scottish Football needs a strong Arbroath.

Celtic* – joshing, folks… ūüôā
