    Perhaps I didn't make myself clear.

    This should help:

    Of course, when you have to explain it, it's not a joke anymore.

    In this case, I would agree with you if you were right. enlightened

    I really don't care what Brown did or did not do. 

    I really don't care if it was Brown, Green or Black. The FACT is that a player was physically attacked on 3 separate occasions. At his work!

    We have all discussed strict liability in the last few weeks and the danger of a player being injured by a ned running onto the park. In this instance the neds were actually playing on the park.

    That is the story that is being swept under the carpet. That is the point you are missing.

    It's the same old 'he brought it on himself' nonsense I've heard before. How dare Brown put his face into my elbow when I'm swinging it.

    You eloquently explained the reasons for the indiscipline of the sevco players. That is the problem that the SFA created when they failed to censure Gerrard over his referee comments and rescinded Morelos's red card. It was a slap in the face to every other SPFL manager and player.

    Anyway. Post or don't post. It's up to you. I won't goad you into it in case I get a smack in the face broken heart

    The problem is the indiscipline of sevco players.

    Brown has absolutely nothing to do with it. No ifs ands or buts.

    Brown was elbowed in the face by Morelos.

    Brown was physically assaulted by Kent. Try swinging a left hook at one of your work colleagues. You will end up sacked and jailed.

    Brown was then further assaulted by Halliday who was sent off for his troubles.

    Trying to spread blame by saying that Brown was not professional is at best a deflection and at worst an excuse for violent actions of sevco players.

    Re clubs response to the BBC survey.

    Strict Liability – Consultation Responses

    Celtic's response to James Dorman's consultation process on strict liability can be found here. I can't see a response from Hearts although they may have classed themselves as anonymous. enlightened

    I don't see why any club should feel they have to respond to a survey just because it is the EBC.

    A reason for the lack of activity on the site comments, IMHO, is that there is a lack of content.

    The last published article was the 7th of August. More articles means more hits and more engagement and more importantly, a higher profile. The website design is poor to say the least. Even the comments section is badly formatted. Comments are not nested for instance.

    The twitter site is very political (which I enjoy) but the Facebook site appears to have died.

    I am pretty sure that there are a rake of budding authors out there who would be glad to have an article published. At the very least, two per week is needed!

    It does not cost £1,500 to run a wordpress.com website per year. It costs £20 per month for a business plan which gives access to good templates and a vast range of plugins. It doesn't take a whole lot of time to design a visually appealing website with engaging content. 

    We all know the importance of the message regarding sporting integrity. But without other content to engage Scottish football fans, this message will never get across. 

    Where are the League tables? Where are the links to match reports, fan websites, relevant news stories, the SFA financials, the SPFL website? Just for a start. I could go on. And on.

    If you build it, they will come. As Confucius said.

    Like a sad B, I counted the empty seats in the 'closed' section from a photo of the area.

    Less than 800.

    Seriously? £300k?

    I didn't know that figure but now my flabber is extremely gasted.

    £300k for a company which turns over £36 million?

    He was the GM of Partick Thistle. And that qualifies him to run the SFA? On a salary probably 10 times what he was earning at PT?

    Is his real name Major Major Major?

    Who is this guy, Maxwell that everyone keeps mentioning?

    easyJambo mentioned the sale of 'distressed' assets to Charles Green.

    This has always stuck in my craw. Every attempt was made by D&P to sell everything for as little as possible to Green to ensure some sort of football was played at Ibrox to the detriment of the creditors.

    For Sevco’s £5.5m It Bought all Rangers’ Players, Fixed Assets, Goodwill AND £2.67m prize money

    easyJambo actually commented on this particular article! Was that really 7 years ago?

    The whole D&P episodes stinks. 

    As does the Bank of Scotland crimes.

    As does the crimes of a Knight of the Realm.
