Comment on One, er, Two Rules to Rule Them All by Bogs Dollox.

    Your comment that you don't care what Brown merely demonstrates your bias and inability to look at two sides of an incident. At no point btw have I failed to condemn the physical violence of the Rangers players.However, Brown is in no way innocent in all this – he kicked an opponent off the ball! But you choose to ignore that.


    Your final comment about me somehow meeting out physical violence to you is childish and deeply insulting and I would like an apology. 

    Are you making the false assumption that I'm a Rangers fan and therefore automatically capable of it. Im not a Rangers fan.

     However, your slur is hardly fair to the many sensible non violent Rangers fans. One of whom came on here recently and made some reasonable points but as usual received a barrel load of thumbs down probably just because he's a Rangers fan.

    You give the PR machine too much credit. The chatter about Morelos and Brown will have died our by the end of the week. So it won't be a deflection from the court case.


    The poor record Gerrard has will be played up by the PR machine with the assistance of the MSM because they want him to go and that may provide the smokescreen whilst the court case runs but I'm sure there will be other squirrels released round about then.

    So despite my previous posts condemning the violent conduct of Morelos, Kent etc you can still ask me that question. Poor show on your part but for the avoidance of doubt, of course it's not sufficient provocation. ================================ All good, but why then did you post "……………….. we were discussing regarding Brown's unprofessional and unecessarily provocative behaviour. Why take the ball of the spot?"  My interpretation of what you posted was that you considered Brown was being provocative throughout the game and you linked his taking the ball off the spot as being an example of that. If that is all you meant then I agree with you.


    Yes that is exactly what I meant. At last. I'm merely pointing out that there are two sides to this. And if you want to grade it in some way then the behaviour of the Rangers players was off the scale compared to Brown.



    However if you view that Brown's antics justified some sort of a response from Rangers players, then I disagree.  If any of the officials saw Brown's "provocation" as anything other than minor, then I would expect them to take action.


    That is not my view and that should have been obvious from my previous posts which is why I got annoyed at your accusation. I can only assume you never read them or didn't grasp what I was saying.


      All I pointed out was that the action of delaying a restart is common-place throughout a game.  Celtic had just scored late in the game. It's hardly a surprise that they would do anything thereafter to slow down the game. The reaction was completely disproportionate to Brown's "provocation". Some players do seek to wind up their opponents and provoke a reaction. It is part of the game, sometimes physical like  an "accidental" elbow in the ribs or standing on a player's foot at a set piece, or it can be verbal like slagging off a wife/girlfriend. There are a couple ways to get even. You can do it physically by perhaps leaving a foot in at the next tackle, or much more effectively by demonstrating that you are a better footballer than them. What you don't do is to retaliate at the time. More often than not you will be one that gets done for it.


    Yes I agree players resort to the sort of gamesmanship you describe. It doesn't make it acceptable or in fact within the Laws of the game. There is too much of it from the stuff you describe to diving, faking injury etc

    Anyway I'm pleased we have cleared that one up. Let the barrage of thumbs downs commence.

Why take the ball of the spot?  ================================ I'm certainly no lover of Scott Brown, but are you suggesting that taking the ball of the spot was in some way sufficient provocation for being punched in the face

    I'm guessing they've put in place some funny structures to "mitigate" their overall tax liability on the loan players.

    That was my first thought too. They have a crippling wage bill and therefore an onerous PAYE liability.

    As PAYE is dealt with in real time these days it doesn't take HMRC long to pick up non compliance.

    Best keep an eye on the Glasgow Courts for enforcement procedures.

    I ruled out an attempt to rescue the reputation of Oldco on the grounds that raking over the coals only highlights the fact they were tax cheats.

    Some time ago I took on the onerous task of having my ears assaulted by SuperscrotesBoard on Clyde 1.

    This was because nobody else on here actually listened to it except J. Clark Esq who listens to everything that is going on in Scotchlandshire be it on the radio, in the courts or in the shareholders shenanigans.

    But be that as it is my underlying and solemn promise was to report back to the Bams with any juicy titbits that I may have gleaned from ClydeScroteBoard.

    Well tonight I heard Shug Keevins talk about a Rangers player called Murray Loss. I thought to mysef – well Shug code it as you must but it is received and understood. Nice one. He said it again. And I thought he had actually grown a pair.

    Third time though after the break he had been corrected and he pronounced the name with the Spanish "th" on the end.

    Otherwise the show was a great big suck up to the Old Firm and at times I thought I would vomit.

    However, I did learn from Craig Beattie that as an angry young player at Hibs Scott Brown once stood on Neil Lennons foot.

    I think there would be serious issues for Directors of RIFC if they knew  the accounts would not be signed off yet were arranging for club 1872 to invest 500k , it really depends how desperate they are or if they believe they could spin their way out of it .


    I agree that there could be serious issues but I doubt they are the type where spin would get you out of it.

    In the same vein there must be the same question mark over the reliability of the half year to Dec 2018 numbers if the full year results produce substantial losses.

    An investor could have seen the reported half year profit and the upbeat message for the full year and thought: "you know what I'm going to get on the blower to that matched bargains geezer and see if I can't scoop up some shares in the holding company of the engine room subsidiary". Imagine his disappointment when the results for the full year are released!

    At times Sportsound might as well be recorded in a Rangers supporters club. I no longer listen. 


    If you think that's bad spare a thought for the Superscoreboard listeners on Clyde 1. It's gone completely downhill ever since Big Deek Johnstone "retired".
