    Comment on In Whose Interests by StevieBC.

    JC / eJ, as our 'SFM legal eagles', with your extensive knowledge of the legal proceedings around the RFC/TRFC saga…

     

    There is, IMO, a rather explosive blog today on the JJ site.

    I don't know if this content has been discussed before, but…

     

    would either of you be able to corroborate this content – or even, what is your opinion on the content?

     

    It just doesn't read true because it is SO damming of the Scottish criminal legal system and the Police, and on multiple levels.

    Karma would be very naughty, if…

     

    King was to declare personal bankruptcy in South Africa!

     

    And the bears would be rendered speechless too…

    Alan Brazil has said on radio that there is a major problem at the top at Ibrox with owner in big trouble…

    Mark Allen may be speaking about the situation privately and it is leaking…

    but it really would leave serious questions of the SFA who allowed this charlatan back…

    =========

    Another one of life's great mysteries: how the hell does TRFC manage to keep bumbling along, when it's financial health has been on life support virtually since birth?!

     

    If/when TRFC finally hits the buffers, the SFA will try to be as understanding / accommodating to the Ibrox club, as they were in 2012.

    The only difference this time though, IMO, is that the Hampden blazers will launch a significant PR campaign this time to try and justify their decisions.

     

    In 2012 there was just silence and secrecy from both the SFA and SPL.  Fans’ queries – and surveys – were simply ignored.

    This time they could play at engaging clubs and fans more publicly – but still push through their preferred actions, regardless, for the benefit of another Ibrox club.

    The SMSM will fill their columns with misinformation and blatant lies via obedient compliance with copy/paste instructions.

     

    The SFA has shown over the decades how stupid it is as an organisation – so why should we expect a different response to the next Ibrox crisis?


    In Whose Interests
    In the interests of accuracy / pedantry…

     

    I couldn't edit my post above in time, but;

    the 'c.£37M SFA revenue in recent years', is the rounded, average annual total over the 3 years to 31/12/18.

    Although I didn't watch the Belgium humping game, I was interested to find out the attendance after the game had finished.

    I looked right across all the MSM reports I could find of the game – but not one mention of the crowd size.

    IIRC, the attendance figure would also typically be shown at the foot of the 'Team Line Ups' page.

     

    Anyhoos, Jingle Jackson has noted in his DR p!sh today that the crowd on Monday night was a lowly 20,000.

    [It was reportedly 32,000 on Friday v. Russia.]

    Even though our team is mince, 20K against the number 1 ranked team on the planet confirms a new level of apathy amongst footy fans.

     

    What does the SFA have to say about the dwindling support?

    Nothing.

    Not a peep from – or sight of – our beloved leader, Maxwell.

     

    But, in a Level42-esque, pitiful PR response the SFA has now informed the SMSM that there is currently a review of grass roots football…

    • which was started 'even before the Russia game' indecision
    • which would replace the last, new grass roots strategy which the SFA had implemented, way back in…2017! enlightened

     

    So, basically nobody at the SFA has a clue – but carry on.

     

    As for the lesser-spotted SFA CEO…

    Maxwell is a bit like the coffee brand: he stays in his House!

     

    Sorry, I'll get my mug…

    "17. Posted by Everybody Loves Chelmsfordon  

    I think the manager has to be sacked after this appalling display. I mean – how can you expect to hang on to your job after only scoring 4 past Scotland? "

    Petrie making belated noises about stamping out sectarianism in Scottish football.

     

    Doncaster publicly backing a "Respect Our Players" campaign.

     

    Undoubtedly, two very worthwhile initiatives…

     

    but, promoted by easily the two most – allegedly – corrupt and mistrusted individuals in Scottish football.

    Ever.

     

    You have to laugh… angel

    I thought an SFA President was akin to a non-exec Chairman.

    No operational authority, but there to provide wise counsel?

     

    Maxwell [aka The Scarlet Pimpernel]

    Guess he's still locked in the bunker then, developing rickets?

     

    UK politics and Scottish professional football.

    Another similarity might be illusion.

    One creates the illusion of democracy.

    The other creates an illusion of fair, sporting competition.

    Mibbees a 'Scottish international break' just sucks the enthusiasm to discuss footy on SFM out of us Internet Bampots?

     

    Can't be bothered talking about the national team itself – or even watching on TV.  In the past I have even been offered Hospitality Tickets for a Scotland game – which I politely declined.

     

    Which is a real shame when you remember the excitement generated amongst young supporters by the Scottish teams of the '70's through to the '90's.

     

    And will we ever see again: a lap of honour in an open top bus around Hampden…before the squad had even left Scottish shores for a World Cup?
