The Good, the bad, the ugly
The Good statement deserves credit, and we will certainly hand it out when due. Only fair.
It was a belter, going straight to the boss essentially, and has subtly placed the onus on Statement Fc to give the world their version of events and be seen to support an employee correctly.
Or have silence judge you complicit.
Talk about rock and a hard place.
If a certain person was waiting for the opportune time to take out a thorn in the games side, it was handed to him on a plate.
Who is probably the biggest question and not who translated,,who’s head will end up on a platter as one or more are sure to roll over this. I doubt one main scapegoat will do at this stage, Sky will want to been seen to act and theres nothing like a termination to look tough.
The light blues must produce someone and with his primary layer of protection gone I think its clear he will be flung under bus,,if anything to attempt to avoid a hefty SFA charge of bringing game into disrepute.
The SFA must be squirming. The Spl’s little squirrel double charge against the club has been ignored in the main which must really annoy them. Lenny’s team will just go on and win by a few as usual, and a club fine isnt gonna lose anyone sleep.
The tie up with the Turnberry wont be taking any eyes away from the big issue, no Sir.
Theres no squirrels or distress calls are going to divert attention on this one of their own making which could be a turning point for the media and our club maybe league.
With our rivals season threatening to taper out with a whimper , a big off field victory for the Tims is the very last thing needed.
I wonder would the press pack themselves have a new lease of life without the bully and could this actually help drive up refereeing performances via honest scrutiny?
How far the ripples reach will be very interesting to watch.
The Bad is the case of two men, one told not to come to work and the other not guilty. Michael Stewart has lost his BBC gig for at least 5 days we read and that probably means he will throw the head up and say eff you lot. He does seem to have an in with BT Sport and some support there who would enjoy working with him but still its an income lost purely for speaking the truth. A travesty yet its the man who has won here.
El Buffalo also has been used and abused by those he trusted. Just a wee friendly sit down has blown up bigtime and he just fired up every away fan in the country when he’s in town.
‘Poor me’ is going to go down like a lead balloon with the terraces, especially now we know a bit of the mans character and habits.
He might have a face made for radio but in the case of translations its hardly his fault. He is innocent on that one.
The Ugly one will of course try to put a brave face on things but the more this rumbles on and the more fallout there is , the more toxic he becomes. The contacts book will have been worked and every favour under the sun called in, yet to no avail.
To try such a schoolboy trick tells me he just isnt that smart in the first place, most bullies arent.
Had he walked from the club with Dave, or played it fairly even until seasons end, then he probably would have wormed his way into some rag or other with the promise of inside Ger’s stories and a yearly Stevie exclusive.
But now, no way the rags want him. Theres Sky and BT off the list plus Aunty Beeb is getting ripped up. If Ofcom hammer him then the options just became a lot smaller. And what difference would it have made anyway, his team were not going to win the league no matter what he got printed.
The fool has dug his own grave for nothing at all,, HAH !
You cant buy this entertainment folks so sit back and enjoy it while it lasts. Happy Friday!
