Something Better Change
Not our best of weekends just gone,as has widely been commented on. Not from me though-I just left it alone. One of those days,etc,how much more crap in our lives do we need?
So it was a pleasure to receive a mail from my best pal which will be the article on Thursday. Same way it has been a pleasure to receive so many recent calls about the absence of one of our posters. When I say that it is a pleasure,I mean that it is a pleasure to know that so many people care.
What is not a pleasure though is that I have no answers. GARRY,get on the end of your phone!
So,the mail from SOLKITTS. And then,if you think about it,the associated f…..g rank cheating from the referee for the Rangers goal. SOLKITTS was a senior referee in his neck of the woods down south,but his job paid much more. No way he was taking the route to Grade One. He doesn’t come from “a traditional Celtic background”,and that applies to many of our posters.
But he knows a cheating bastert when he sees one.
That decision,so many decisions over the years,should there be a compliance officer for referees? Of course there should.
Same as there seems to be an unlikely number of UEFA observers at Rangers games who come from Northern Ireland,there seems to be an unlikely number of referees who come from “a traditional Rangers background”
So of course there should be a version of the Compliance Officer for referees,same as there is in England. But it won’t happen. The last time anyone kicked up about how crap they are,they went on strike!
Can we complain about an opposition player taking nearly two minutes over a free kick when we don’t complain about a striker being halfed in two,or a clear penalty turned down? Well,not if we don’t stand up and f…..g do it!
Given SOLKITTS background,if he was to retire back to Scotland and apply to the SFA as a refereeing supervisor,they would probably assume-“One of us,got all the credentials”. They would be in for a shock of course,that man will call things as he sees them.
No fear nor favour.
Unless we get a Compliance Officer in place for the referees,we can throw no fear or favour out of the window.
