    Comment on One, er, Two Rules to Rule Them All by Ex Ludo.

    Speaking of this coming Sunday, the print edition of The Herald has given the game undue prominence by putting “Old Firm showdown” above the title on the front page and follows up with a piece by Matthew Lindsay which is bookended by references to the Old Firm. It’s almost like nothing of any significance happened in Scottish football  in 2012.

    This BBC tweet references a “police chief “ suggesting a senior officer has made a statement when in fact the substantive comments by the “chief” are actually made by a representative from the Scottish Police Federation who represents the rank and file. Whilst he has every right to comment it’s a poor show from the BBC to headline the comments in that way. There’s also a curious comment in the article stating that the clubs store banners belonging to fans who then hide behind these banners if they have committed any misdemeanours. Presumably someone has observed this type of fan behaviour but  no action has been taken in respect of this as far as I know. Can anyone confirm if clubs do actually store banners? It suggests some sort of collusion and a tacit acceptance of unwelcome messages being displayed on the banners.

    The punch doesn’t have to land for it to be an assault. Scott Brown, being a well trained athlete with excellent reflexes would instinctively react to a fist heading towards his face and minimise the impact of such an attack. From what I’ve read on Twitter this morning it appears Police Scotland are consulting with the Procurator Fiscal regarding his (Brown’s) behaviour during the match. Given what the video footage shows of the Ryan Kent incident Scott Brown could himself make a complaint to the Police. It will be interesting to see how the compliance officer deals with this matter later today.

    In Scots law the intent (attempt) to cause someone harm is enough to constitute assault. So even if a punch is thrown but misses the target it’s still assault. #pedantry.

    If it’s ok I’m to fact-check everything in that video first using quants and algorithms obviously.

    Oh and I do remember reading the Solzhenitsyn books at school. Ivan Denisovich was a fraction of the length of Cancer Ward, which I found quite depressing.
