    Push or punch??

    ===================

    Well, that's the clearest view so far of the incident.

    And regardless of whether it's a push or a punch, whether Kent was provoked or not…

    TRFC is missing a hugely significant point here.

     

    After Kent's contact with Brown's face, Brown could have copied Morelos' antics by rolling along the deck holding his face – as though taken out by a sniper.

    That would have guaranteed an ever bigger melee.

    Brown got up quickly and rightly protested about this punch.

     

    If TRFC has the audacity to appeal Kent's red card, it tells any neutral everything you need to know about that club's attitude to rules and civilised, acceptable behaviour – both on and off the pitch!

    IMO, the Ryan Kent swing was the most shocking incident on Sunday.

    Morelos got a red for a sneaky, off the ball elbow.

     

    In stark contrast, Brown had actually been holding the ball just before Kent took a swing at him.

    Nothing sneaky or accidental.  Just a clear as day, clenched fist, left hook towards Brown's face.

    Intent seemed rather blatant.

     

    In any 'normal' televised game that punch would be the most talked about action.  It's just got minimised in all the other stuff going on in the game, and after the final whistle.

     

    Ryan Kent should have the book thrown at him – as any reasonable football supporter would expect.

     

    And the other point which has been lost in the noise: Brown had the ball in his hands. 

    …so how did the ref, 2 linesmen and the 4th official ALL miss the punch at the time ?

    The DR is definitely getting even worse.

    Today's efforts include 2 standouts;

    1) "Celtic skipper Scott Brown set to go under SFA microscope for Rangers celebrations"

    Good headline to pacify the bears and to deflect. 

    But an absolute nonsense, lazy, off the cuff article, which didn't even bother to include any 'unnamed source' quotes.

    It's credited to Michael Gannon, who presumably doesn't even bother to read the p!sh he is given by Traynor ?

    2) "Michael Stewart questions how Rangers can keep financing 'desperate' bid to stop Celtic."

    On the face of it, a critical piece about TRFC's finances based on truthful quotes from Stewart.  Interesting that nobody at the DR wants to put their name to it though, as it's credited to "Record Sport Online".

    But the best bit is this from the DR itself;

    "…Rangers posted losses of over £14million in November 2018 after investing heavily to bring Gerrard to the club and fund his subsequent squad rebuild…"

    Theses accounts were up to 30th June, 2018.

    Gerrard's first day as TRFC manager was 1st June, 2018.

    Materially, the £14M loss had bugger all to do with Gerrard.

    But the DR blames him anyway!

    However, the impact of Gerrard's recruitment and squad rebuilding will – absolutely – be reflected in the accounts to 30th June this year.

    Another poor / lazy effort from Traynor – to try and pin all TRFC's financial woes on Gerrard.

    Morelos has made a public apology via Twitter to his club and fans.

    Fair enough.

     

    No mention though of the guy he assaulted in public view, and in front of countless Police officers.

     

    Sums him up I suppose…

    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.

    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?

    I just want to know what The Times Scotland was promised, [or threatened with?], for carrying the HMRC nonsense story?

    The Editor must have guessed that there would be huge interest in the story.

    And if only to cover his @rse he would have his in-house business experts validate Traynor's PR p!sh… you would think?

    I suppose in the past, an Editor would have immediately fallen on his sword for bringing his paper – and all of his colleagues – into disrepute?
