Pass it to CAS?

As far as Im concerned the biggest off field news recently was the Sun of all rags getting tipped off about the SFA being on the verge of deciding what course to take regarding Rangers alleged breaches of Uefa rules. Having regulations policed and enforced should be a given, not a hope, and having watched the domestic game be hit by scandal after scandal and sink to shockingly low levels, I can only hope this is the first step of the journey towards a better setup.
It cant get much worse in fairness.

 

The report itself is very shrewd in its wording for a start, couched in vague hints that give the impression knowing a lot but actually saying little. Of course the investigation may decide something within the next few weeks,,thats a simple fact,,yet it makes the news which then gives it the mysterious gravitas of a top level leak. As its undenied in a statement from headquarters its clearly true, and it could be argued to invent stuff about the head honchos at Hampdump may result in a premature evaluation and abrupt transfer which again grants it some teeth.

 

But theres no quotable name and no insider source anywhere giving us the lay of the land or any relevant possibly valuable information, usually a no no as you’re then into the opinion column territory. So the writer got a nod its coming and wants to nail that exclusive scoop tag now weeks early? Seems that way.
The Sfa get to start laying groundwork via a minion, thats obvious.

 

Its notable that the report has taken almost two years to get to this point. Thats small in some legal cases but in footballing terms thats quite a stretch. The investigation into the then groundbreaking Calciopoli scandal for instance took around a similar time and one imagines that would have been much more far reaching. I can only pray theres similar will to see justice done, and it disgusts me to see the old lady of Italian football refuse to acknowledge the stripping of titles by its governing bodies. We also know in that case the second place team was awarded the title(s) which may or may not become very important.

 

The timing is a matter of conjecture of course but when has that ever stopped us. The conspiracy theorists among us 😉 will be having a field day with the murmurs this is to clear the decks of the previous two teams that played in light blue out of Ibrox, so as to have a clean slate ready for a third resurrection to emerge baggage free.
Another Rangers would take the biscuit imo but you never know in football.
Translategate may have forced the governing bodies hand here, as they really wouldn’t want to send the Huns away with TWO separate charges of bringing the game into disrepute allied with the sectarian stand closures and clothing company court cases everywhere. Getting the old charges dealt with before new ones emerge could be the play here.

 

With the insistence that any disputes be resolved at CAS inserted in the 5WA that does allow some great wiggle room all around. There wont be anyone fearing for their livelihood or property in Alba for a start, and Johnny Foreigner makes a perfect scapegoat despite the fact they fare better in Europe than at home on the pitch. The members of the SFA board can say our hands were tied by the 5 way, status unaffected.

 

Bringing the game into disrepute is such a wonderful catchall phrase that seems designed to cover acts of malarkey not specifically imagined when the rules were being laid out. This one revolves around whether or not a bill had crystalized yadda yadda.
You dont need me to explain. Anyone who has been following the Res12 story will be very interested in the next move. We know our club dont feel its in their best interests and have not divulged why exactly that is. At least it seems we are one step closer to closure.

 

That closure is deserved by some who have fought all our corners from the very start, on behalf of supporters of any and all teams. This decision might not seem that big at all considering some of what we have witnessed over the last decade or so, but for a percentage this will be THE defining moment. Throwing the rulebook out the window when suits just isnt for myself and I imagine quite a few, plus if it happens once it can and more than likely will happen again.
Governance is crucial,,they turn their back on it, many fans of all teams will slowly turn their back on the sport.
They MUST get this one correct.

Can’t help wondering why it has taken almost two years for the SFA to decide on this,and nearly a decade in total. Stinks to high heaven.

TLR stuff from last night has all been removed? Why?! If you’re going say shit again like “He’s abusive” what about those mocking and abusing him..that ok? There are posts left that still include name calling of TLR ..that ok? If you Just keep deleting all his stuff cause you don’t agree, or are uncomfortable with what he says, then that is really piss poor.

You seem to want to pick and choose who is cool on here and who is not.

I agree.The truth does seem to hurt.

BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE, if the lions roar stuck to talking about celtic, he would be an asset to this site. OMO.hh.

Big Audio Dynamite

Went to bed at 12 last night, hadn’t seen TLR be abusive to a single person, but I had witnessed him being mocked and called names, most of the night! Seems blindingly obvious only one poster is being singled out.

We making an open forum here, or are we just creating space for a clique?

Twists n Turns

Don’t envy anyone the task of trying to determine what’s acceptable and what is not on an open forum.
Never going to keep everyone happy. I can live with reading or skipping posts as I see fit, on any acceptable subjects, it’s the personal abuse stuff that gets ma goat. I try ( perhaps not always successfully) to speak to people in the same way I’d do so face to face.

I wish others would do the same. If some folks are actually speaking to others in the same way they do in a pub for example, must’ve been some interesting nights in their lives . ? ? ? ???. ?

I’d think a few separate chat rooms would solve the problem,

Football
Nags
Music
AOB

… but that’s easy for me to sit here and say since I’m not the one having to facilitate / organise, nor indeed pay for the changes.

Just be respectful. Not that hard really.

I asked TLR a couple of times not to post that. It was clear from the reaction of the other contributors that his weren’t welcome on here.

If THELIONSROAR wants to rant,he can do so elsewhere. People were generally polite in their response but his was to ridicule and insult them for not knowing that he is right. He can do it elsewhere,and when he comes back,as soon as he reverts from his usual polite first few posts to his usual ugly persona,I’ll do the same again.

We didn’t set the site up as a haven for people with their own crackpot agendas,and as I pointed out to him the other day,there are millions of sites where he will be welcomed.

Big Audio Dynamite

Have any of you, who keep dismissing TLR out of hand, really looked into what he talks about, I mean really researched it? Did it never occur to any of you, that a man with 35 years of research behind him, might know a thing or two that you dont?!!

Honestly, the world is crammed full with ignorant bastards!

BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

BIGAUDIODYNAMITE

How do you know he has 35 years of experience research? Because he says so? I could easily say I’ve got 56 years of research experience,soon to be 57. Knock off a few for the years before I learnt how to read.

As an ad hoc guide to the content of links he and anyone else posts,look at the comments beneath them. That will usually give a pointer to the type of company you will be keeping by taking them as,to use his favourite word,fact.

Big Audio Dynamite

Mick, you asked him not to post “That” what is that? Again, you gonna pick and choose what people can talk about? How many would need to complain about my posts, before they are removed? This is unworkable.

“People were generally polite in their responses” That isn’t true, is it? There are still posts there abusing him. I reapeat, I didn’t see TLR abuse anyone

“A haven for people’s cracked agendas” that is a really piss poor statement, Mick. I’ll assume then you have researched all this stuff? To just dismiss everything the man says, you have to be able to come up with better than “He’s just a crackpot”

I was at a rare loose end yesterday. When my kids were young I used to take them to Dunbar. Go to the harbour and watch the fishing boats come in really early in the morning, get chips and feed the gulls in the evenings, ( I know I know – don’t feed the gulls) , cafe for lunch etc.

Hadn’t been for what, oh 30 years plus , so yesterday, with time on my hands I thought I’d head there for lunch. Re live a few memories.

High street has changed
Into a cafe – ordered 2 coffees and cake – cash only
Back out to find a cash point – broken
Go find another
Back to the cafe
Average quality at best ( I’m being kind)
Down to the harbour – deserted pretty much

Pretty disappointed.

Big Audio Dynamite

Mick, I know because he is fucking right, and he is one of a very few I’ve met who is awake! For him to be constantly deleted cause some are too ignorant to look for themselves, is just fucking shite!

TLR gets deleted for his views, but posts abusing him are ok for the rest of us to read!

BIGRAILROADBLUES, good morning from sunny cheshire?

McCaff

Morning all
Not gonna be taking sides on this but since TLR came on during the week the mood did change.
BAD
You’re absolutely spot on with your assessment but TLR was unflinching in his approach to making sure everyone knew he was right and no other opinion mattered. The manner, even if he was polite in his use of words, in which he disregarded everyone else’s opinion makes for hard reading for me. As for his facts abot whatever subject he was writing about, a few links to enforce his views would have been handy. But, sorry, it just seemed to much to be about him.
I don’t agree with shutting people down but surely people who post need to try to judge the mood of the readership too!

Mon the TIC!

McCaff good luck if you’re playing this wkend, mate ? we’re away to Shettleston on Sunday.

Mate, I’ll never understand how grown ups with no interest in the subject matter, can’t just ignore ..what harm could he possibly do to you? What are people scared of? And see if you’re not prepared to research what he says, and rather just dismiss the man out of hand, that makes you an immature, ignorant bastard imo ( Not you, obv)

Grown men eh? They didn’t act like it.

BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

I reckon that if anyone in a pub called you “an ignorant blowhard who is too far up his own jacksy” you would knock him out or go elsewhere. Rightly so.

Yet the deleted posts folder is full of such gems from him. He’s hardly more sinned against than sinning. That’s four times he’s come on and four times we’ve eventually deleted a raft of his posts. Yet we’ve never had to do this to anyone else.

The common denominator isn’t hard to find. The matter is closed,his posts won’t be reinstated.

We’re away to Dumbarton, kick off 10 so need to boost. Good Luck tomorrow, BAD

Twists, see that’s being adult, well done! Separate rooms, is that doable? Would that not solve the problem today? We cannot single one man out and just leave it there ..that is wrong, on every level

BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

BIGAUDIODYNAMITE

No,I didn’t miss them,and I didn’t miss yours at 827 either. Yours is still there for the same reason as theirs is still there. It’s hardly a three strikes policy but habitually abusing other posters isn’t on.

That’s a helluva double bud. Well done!

Big Audio Dynamite

So TLR just came on last night and was abusive to others, right out the blue? That is utter tripe, he may have answered those abusing him, but he certainly wasn’t on causing it.

Does TLR not have the right to answer abuse? And for the 4th time, why are posts that are abusing him allowed to stay?!!

Big Audio Dynamite

Bobby, what about my post at 8.27?

Bigrailroadblues

4 tips from my cousin in Roscommon. 2 winners, 1 placed at 10/1. We’re both in shock. ??

Big Audio Dynamite

“Habitually abusing others” How do I keep missing that? All I’ve seen is TLR answering mockery and abuse!

So, the posts abusing him are staying?

Big Audio Dynamite

Twists suggested a separate room ..I’m sure TLR would be cool with that… is it doable, Mick?

My son has already claimed half of the squerr. Greedy bugger will eat it all in one sitting. The pies are for a mate at work. All I will be left with is the box, but that’s ok cause I’m just a wee lad who doesn’t eat much (just ask BMCUWP)??

BOBBY MURDOCH’S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

BIGAUDIODYNAMITE

Aye,it’s doable but as it would essentially be unmoderated but still under our umbrella,it could cause us legal problems. I’ll speak to Mahe about it at the start of the week-it’s his anniversary weekend now so I doubt we will hear much from him!

If we both decide to give it a try and the legal advice on it is favourable,then yes. But I reckon by its very nature that it is doomed to failure because of the content likely to be posted and the reaction that will cause.

As to the actual virus thing.. As a follower of ‘The Big Man has goat ye wrote doon’ school of thought I shall be taking my normal hygiene precautions which have kept me okay for 69 years!
Speaking of schools of thought..you can read or skip or shake your head as long as it doesn’t break any rules though there is nothing more annoying than listening (reading )two headbangers arguing who is right. I always think their Mammy must have dropped them on their head when they were babies.
To the game..A win is all we need.That should be the mantra and NFL should reflect that in his selection.First,no mind-wandering by back three or four,secondly,no fn fannying about with endless side and bam passes and lastly,the thing like a string bag behind the goalkeeper is where you put the ball as often as you can!

If it’s impractical or indeed risky from a legal perspective, or even too time consuming, please bin the idea. Wasn’t looking to cause you or the I.T. bhoys any grief or work, just thinking aloud really.

Ed Walker says it would probably win if the draw weren’t so bad. So your fate is in the hands of the jockey. Get it out and into a decent position for a late run, or bolt to the front from the wide draw ( though that might see it collared late) and you’re in with a vg shout. Get trapped out wide or denied a late through a wall of horses, and it’s a tough ask.

GL. I’ll be on it anyway in hope that the jockey can get it into an attacking position.

It won’t be too time consuming. It’s fairly easy to set up,but the problem will be when it comes to moderating it. It’s hard enough on here without one where,effectively,you’ve given the keys to the sweetie cupboard to the gluttons.

It’s similar to the info we get sent on various things-what is wise to use,what is relevant,what is a bloody minefield? So far we’ve avoided the minefields,but there have been one or two which we were heavily criticised for-and praised for by others! Proof enough that you can’t please everyone.

Golfing weather up there,perchance?

Just me and my Mum missing then. Believe it or not,the inaugural trip north to Paradise of The Swindon Shamrock CSC takes place today,so I could have been there too. I normally finish early on a Saturday morning,around 230am,but recently the later finishes have been happening too often to take the risk.

Just as well. The bus left at 4am,I didn’t finish till around 530am. Raise a glass to the absentees and tell the stewards and police yer 68. Same as when I was a nipper going to the pub,I never said eighteen when I was asked my age,twenty was the minimum.

Blowing a gale bud. There are a couple out on the course at the moment. I’m hopeless so the chances are I’d lose a few balls. I’m not good enough to use the wind.

I’ll see how it looks in a few hours.

I was planning to be back here next weekend but my son has asked me to take my grandson to his match in Shotts next Saturday whilst he lies sunning himself in Cape Verde, so I’ll either need to travel back and forward or can my plan.

My new car arrives a week on Monday too so I need to be home for that. ( only ordered it in December!!) . Quite bad really that it takes so long. All that I had being done to it was 360 degree cameras fitted so it’s not as though I was asking something that wasn’t pretty much plug n play.

Hey ho. It is what it is.
