Give them an inch,,,
What a four weeks, and what a finale.
But there was no standing ovation, rather just mere head scratching in this case.
There was however an immediate ‘That it?’ from headquarters, oozing confidence.
And as predicted the idiots who still write for the on it’s knees ink and paper industry had to take a side pretty quick and pretty decisively, they didn’t disappoint.
Yet it’s not even the most important dossier out there.
It is the one that wasn’t ignored though and what a difference that makes as we are able to see from our own front row seats.
A month it has dominated the news before even being produced and everyday the snowball rolled it grew a little, which was supposed to lead to yesterdays avalanche.
More like a mouse roar.
The internet has made everything so transparent it’s beautiful. It’s simply a matter of having the actual facts open on one tab, and reading the bullshit on another whilst comparing the two. Of course the key is getting the 100% verified official facts first.
Then it’s easy to sit back and see who is full of it.
Admittedly the virus has exposed many a crack in many a system being an out of the blue unprecedented event. I mean a bat in China has rippled to civil war in Scottish football, surely that’s never happened before?
The wise man might have seen these former friends falling apart but I didn’t, at this stage anyway. That’s its over the root of all evil is zero surprise to me.
As Tims we should sit back and love it, yet it’s that serious our landscape is wobbling.
I guess the only thing now is to see how deep the rabbit hole goes, how bitter it will get, and my own query how will fuzz react if non Tims are the target of the klan.
Of course,Sevco and their fans and allies haven’t given up on this just yet. Various social media sites are suggesting that the dossier asserts that the SPFL broke its own rules by paying out prize money when they did to the lower division clubs. And that the TV deal which largely funds the SPFL probably won’t be paid in full for a truncated season-which is only right and proper,of course-which could lead to serious financial complications for the SPFL. £10m worth of financial implications,in fact.
The suggestion is that if the SPFL goes bust as a result,then those clubs would be forced to repay that money as it was wrongly allocated. Few would be able to afford that of course,which would probably lead to a compulsory winding up order.
There’s the wishful thinking scenario,and here’s mine.
Firstly,if our season is 80% complete and the TV deal is £25m,then the TV companies are only due £5m. Secondly and far more importantly,the SPFL is owned by its 42 members. As such,THEY decide on the rules. The rules are that prize money is paid out at the end of the season. The end of the season is considered to be when all games have been completed and finishing positions declared-or whenever the SPFL,at the direction of the clubs so decides.
The SPFL asked the clubs to vote on ending the season. The clubs voted YES. Therefore,season’s end has been lawfully declared. End of action. More grasping at straws from the huns as they pursue their scorched earth policy to destroy Scottish football.
We have come to expect no less.
