Taunted. That’s how I feel when handed verdicts like the FTP song video. The worst is a matter of personal preference but ‘imperfectly registered’ took the biscuit for me.
‘No criminality proven’ isn’t that far behind though.
If this matter gets airbrushed into history by a combination of the next scandal (one a week on average) and a blind eye from headquarters it will simply become another taunt in a long line of them.
The years of suspect judgements have filled the shock factor but being spoon fed obvious horse rap time after time is taunting an entire club and it’s support.
55 now nothing happened despite the fact the camera doesn’t lie and that gathering broke rules, rules that we got hammered for breaking.
The obvious inequality from ‘neutral as always’ headquarters is a taunt.
Taunting is a passive aggressive form of anger being expressed, carried out for a reason, to cause hurt on a certain level.
Hurt to all of us.
Of course those doing the taunting only do so because they feel they can, apparently unafraid of any consequences.
To date, Uefa have not stepped in and there’s no evidence to suggest they will get involved with our backwater’s intricate affairs.
The clubs, with direct access to headquarters, have never asked them to step in for the common good.
For their safety I would posit.
With zero sign of being reported the SFA and it’s pet have shown everything but humility at the rest of Scottish football, the superiority complex has erupted since 55 became the new 1690, a number which in itself taunts the intelligence.
Headquarters themselves must realize the Tims are faced with a quandary, caught in a trap like the King sang, when it comes to their beloved Glasgow Celtic. Hampden can throw out whatever they want, ratify the daftest explanation not in the book, feed us crap, and they can’t lose.
They won’t be reported for the dubious running of the game to ‘daddy’ and even if they did they would have some friends to try and smooth things such as the Red Hand of Ulster being seen in Israel that time, not to be confused with the Red Stump of Ulster who has a warwound and half for the grandchildren, he bled more than his team for the imaginary 55th.
Why our club doesn’t challenge the malarkey we are subjected to is anyone’s guess, and there’s no point in guessing forever if you’re not gonna be rewarded if hitting upon the truth.
Hampden, I believe, is laughing about our predicament. The Tims can either swallow the national sport served up their way with it’s lies and blind eyes when suits backed by a compliant press, or leave.
And if they do leave it hurts Celtic further opening the door for the establishment team.
It’s a taunt.
Taunting, as the wise know, can backfire, don’t tug the tail of the tiger and all. While a lone appeal for a season ticket boycott would get next to zero traction, there’s an undoubted appetite for some organized way to hit out and back at the suits who ruin the sport, the national sport therefore the people’s sport.
The Trust and Green Brigades ‘Celtic Shared’ proposal to the club regarding shares as an added value bonus for loyalty during the most bizarre times some of us will ever live through has not been forthcoming, I guess nothing will be after hearing the boards ‘move on’ message.
More boardroom waffles and another taunt perhaps?
The Celtic support need to unify for the common good if only one time, a Cup game sounds good, but it’s very important we as a fanbase show some resolve and fortitude in order to at least put some doubt into the minds of those who taunt us.
The groups and factions should come together for common cause.
The Tims should make a stand.
Next season WE should stand outside their Cup games singing and taunting them.
