    Comment on Bad Money? by StevieBC.

    As we are subjected to all sorts of misreporting on all things 'Rangers' in the SMSM – and the league has only just kicked off…

     

    I have placed a few wee bets on a Danish team doing me a favour tonight.

    For purely schadenfreude reasons I will watch TRFC play in their EL tie.

     

    …because I think there is a real possibility that the 'Rangers' season will be effectively over by 9pm tonight.

     

    [And I absolutely agree that – in a perfect world – I should be cheering on any and every Scottish team in Europe.  I normally do, but since 2012 I want these particular cheats to lose every single game.]

     

    Fingers & toes crossed!

    Bad Money?
    Allegedly…King visited the English FA offices today.

     

    When nobody was looking he nobbled the windows…

     

    so the transfer window simply couldn't close later today…

     

    and the SMSM would have even more time to copy/paste additional, BS, fictitious bids from assorted English clubs.

     

    Well, TRFC could be looking for a MASSIVE, furry squirrel to distract the bears tomorrow morning…

    A bit more 'meat' on the Morelos' bid indecision  in The DR;

     

    "West Brom's Alfredo Morelos transfer bid booted out as Rangers hold firm after 11th hour approach

    The Ibrox side have turfed out a bid from the English Championship side who have until Thursday at 5.00pm to sign players.

    By Scott Burns 23:45, 7 AUG 2019

    Rangers have knocked back a £10million plus approach from West Bromwich Albion for Alfredo Morelos.

    Midlands sources close to West Bromwich Albion have confirmed

    but it wasn’t enough to coax Rangers to the table.

    …"

    ======

     

    And for such a high profile Ibrox story, why did Jingle Jackson not get an "EXCLUSIVE"?

     

    …and it was conveniently released just before midnight, so less than 1 full day of public ridicule for the DR to endure for this PR p!sh story – until the transfer window slams shut tonight.

     

    Shirley, the bears must be laughing at these 'reports' as well?

    Ze list. Don’t tell him your name Pike!

    ============/

    Eh?

    Another boycott – of the SMSM this time – as promoted by Rangers Radio ?

     

    Has nobody from the Blue Room explained what's actually going on to their very own media people?

     

    The one club in the whole of Scotland which desperately relies on the SMSM is TRFC.

     

    Without a supportive SMSM there simply would be no Continuation Lie.

    And no "Going For 55" bollox either.

     

    What if the ever dwindling SMSM tried a different strategy – and boycotted the Ibrox club in return?

    No more copy / paste of PR p!sh from Traynor.

    No more biased reporting on all things 'Rangers'.

    No more covering up / avoiding the financial shambles.

     

    If the SMSM tried honest, truthful – and complete – reporting on Scottish football, from the SFA to the SPFL and down to the clubs themselves, then they just might attract more consumers.

     

    Worth a punt from a dying industry: even at this late stage, IMO.

    Ex Ludo, why would Gary McAllister think of leaving Ibrox when he is within – potentially – touching distance of a league title – nevermind a LC medal?  indecision

     

     

    As an aside – and not that I'm on a commission with RT, honest comrade – but I watched a very interesting programme on RT called 'Renegade' – probably still on YouTube.

    Anyway on the current episode, it's the host with an ex-UK MSM journalist who is now independent, and a current UK University professor in journalism.  Debate was about lack of trust in MSM, etc.

     

    Couple of SFM relevant points I picked up;

    The journalist openly admitted that in the MSM she routinely copied/pasted several press releases daily for a variety of reasons, with lack of time and resources being top reasons. 

    But it's the first time I've heard the term 'copy/paste' being openly quoted about UK journalism.

     

    The professor mentioned that UK MSM is "massively over represented" by a narrow demographic with a private school and Oxbridge background – and there is a propensity for groupthink.

     

    As we know, it's not just the footy journos letting us down in the MSM.

    It's hard to believe that RIFC would be a delinquent tax payer, but who knows?

    As we saw with Craig Whyte, desperate times can result in desperate measures.

     

    I'm thinking that yes, there could be a significant overdue payment – but payable to any one of a myriad of exasperated suppliers.

    Mibbees a supplier had/has threatened to apply for a Winding Up Petition because RIFC is so overdue with its vendor payments?

    TT, you've omitted the devil incarnate: Hilary Clinton.

    Must be close for top spot?

     

    Andrew should get on the blower to our very own PR guru Traynor.  Well, nobody in the SMSM has ever been allowed to discuss King's dodgy past – including his 42 criminal convictions.

    Actually, if you read the above DR Rod Petrie article in full…

     

    you will quickly surmise that the guy is delusional.

    Not exaggerating: delusional.

     

    Read it for yourself.


    Celtic’s Questions to Answer
    Headline from the DR;

    "Rod Petrie promises to address the Hampden bugbear that annoys every supporter

    …"

    ========

    Why is the SFA President – Rod Petrie – speaking to the media?

     

    Surely this operational matter should be publicly addressed by the £300K p.a. CEO – Ian Maxwell?
