Just another manic Monday
Yesterday we were given the phrase ” Season of Shame “
It was a former Celt who coined the phrase , ironically for a rag of shame , but its apt nonetheless. Kris Commons isnt known for his smarts but he has hit the nail on the head with his latest rambling .
You will of course know by now that the fans songs are by this stage getting the blame for people getting sent off.
2 weeks ago we seen our Captain found guilty of selling the nuclear codes to Russia or something equally horrific ,, well he was actually accused of being behind the “ Old Firms “ ills. Which one is worse is questionable.
Sunday seen the Dons boss claim he was sent off for reacting to a song !
At least Scott can sleep a bit easier not getting dragged into it .
The obvious question is you’re supposed to be focused on the field , why is a song getting to you so much ?
He did furnish some answers in the rag as to what happened but as usual whenever you attempt to break down many in the domestic games’s answers they dont actually tend to make sense ! Pearls of wisdom are not freely scattered around from his gob as you will read.
“ I got sent off because I reacted to the Celtic support . I was wrong with my reaction , I’ll take my punishment. “
As if its a choice and all , bloody nice of him eh. And focus on your team ffs.
“ It’ll be interested to see if everybody gets punished for it but I accept my part “
Opens with a sleekit what about them ! Again that’s bloody nice of him to hold his hands up ,, after being caught on camera by the nation and the diaspora .
“I was wrong to react , Im in a position where I cant react . “
OK yes you were wrong , and you have accepted an employment position that entails you must not react and be focused on the field of play as you state , yet your answer is to react and announce I shouldn’t have reacted !
Genius that man , where did I leave Mensa’s number ?
“ And thats why I was sent off , maybe the 4th official could give me a warning – who knows ?
But he’s obviously deemed it serious enough to bring the referee over and send me off , so I’ll accept that and I’ll apologise for it “
Thats the 3rd time he’s “ accepted “ it already and the interview has just begun !
He might have warned me but it was worse than that in their eyes is the jist of the rest ,, again tie him down to a book deal ffs !
“ Any punishment coming my way Ill take it on the chin . Ive heard that song a hundred times and never reacted to it , maybe its frustration . “
The old Mowbray special “ take it on the Chin “ gets a roll out ,, always brings back bad memories.
And then the classic Ive never done it before !
“ Your Honour I had walked past a bank almost every day of my life and never robbed one ! “
“ But I paid for goods from this shop every other time I was in here ! “
“ Paid for every other taxi but this one I swear ! “
This guy and Dave King would have put me in an early grave with split sides syndrome so thanks for being so concomitant that time Deek !
“ It will be up to the delegate to do their bit as its in the report which is pleasing and refreshing because it doesn’t always get in there when you hear sectarian singing .
It certainly wasn’t in the Cup final the last time we were here . That’s not my battle or my fight . Its for others to condemn .”
His good point that its often not reported is lost in his petiness to point at past instances.
And many things arent your fight and battle yet arent drawn attention to .
Me thinks your were trying to put undue pressure out there Deek ! Naughty Naughty !
Well if he wants the can of worms that is sectarian singing opened up and brought out into the public Im sure many would welcome that and I hope that goes for us all on here.
However Level 5 wont see their paymasters get hammered under their watch without the mother of all fights played out across media pages and airwaves.
They have the most to lose in this scrap ( their wages and club of choice ) I think most rational people would agree and thats why the media will be told not to make it a songs debate .
Expect a squirrel or two thrown up this week to deflect , but definitely do not expect a serious songs debate.
Kris Boyds “ blistering “ attack on Hampden stating they cant control what goes on in their own house is indicative of media strategy , pressure on upper hierarchy to resign which would suit them down to the ground . More obfuscation with eventually your man or your mark !
A spokesperson from our own Club of choice did hit back a little in their brief statement pointing out that our fans also were the victim of songs also.
For me anyway the easiest way to look at it is this ,, if if had been another two teams would we be seeing this hissyfit from the Hampden suits to clamp down on the songbooks ?
Or the media ? Or even Deek ?
Theres your answer. This isnt genuine , its get Timmy !
Allied with the fact ( well Dave Kings fact ) that der Hun is about to become the preeminent force in the land and all in all it was a great day for the press , the authorities , and those who wish for people to look anywhere but at them .
Another day like Sunday would have killed them , Monday had to be better!
As we are in Easter week we would ask all lurkers to think about joining the forum as its our way of knowing we are doing something right. We are aiming to increase the number of regular posters and all views will be given due respect .
If you like to write we are more than glad to publish and a day off is always nice.
