I have absolutely no doubt they will, but I was looking at the net position after all costs and VAT have been deducted, then TV rights added before averaging out the ‘profit’ as 50,000 at £20 per bum. Not even a fag packet calculation, just an attempt to show how the estimate of £1m per home match is easily achievable for them, and makes Europa Cup participation potentially very lucrative for TRFC, despite the moderate level of prize money per round.

I wonder who’ll pay to cover TRFC versus Nondescripty Nobodi from Eastern Europe? BT cover the group stages, but would they be motivated to shell out extra for a qualifier? I doubt that BBC/STV would be interested. That leaves the likes of Prime Sports etc. Would they pay six figures?

I’d also wonder that TV coverage could have an adverse affect on the gate at Ibrox, with fans choosing to watch lower-cost TV coverage with a few beers, rather than spend £30 or £40 on a ticket plus travel & refreshments.

I see Neil Doncaster got a bit of a doing from Brian Whittle MSP at Holyrood today.

It’s an interesting point Auldheid why all the accusations against the villains in this piece are not challenged.
It is well known nowadays that what is posted on social media can be criminal, hence my harmless comments.

I suspect that the SFA & SPFL hierarchies think (!) that they are containing/managing the whole RFC(2012 IL)/TRFC stream quite well, simply because it’s not broken out to be a UK-wide story. (Why is that, I wonder?)

I also suspect that those same hierarchies haven’t really bought into (or appreciated) the effect of social media on ‘news’ these days & simply believe that a compliant SMSM printing/broadcasting tosh that follows their SFA/SPFL agendas will literally form the accepted history of early 21st century football in Scotland.

They possibly still believe the Traynorism of the ‘keyboard clatterers & internet bampots’ as being worthless as a source.

I hope it bites them in the ar*e!

Enough is enough
Allan Stewart? Surely not!

There is only one possible lookey-likey for the role of Craigy – James McPherson, better known as Mike Jardine in Taggart.

The hair, the suit, the hand in the trouser pocket…

TRFC have a recently-appointed Director of Football in situ.

Would any of the managerial names being mentioned be happy working with a DoF & particularly the one that is in post?

Mibbes aye, mibbes naw!

It seems that the BetFred Cup has its own disciplinary rules.

They’re not (as far as I can see) included in the linked PDF from this page:

…which, in turn, refers to:

…that doesn’t seem to mention (again, as far as I can see) bookings being wiped clean at semi-final level & split-competition punishments for violent conduct/other sendings-off.

See transparency; see yon SPFL…

Who on earth, at the BBC, deemed it appropriate to commission a full interview with Graeme Souness? 

In the small world of Scottish celebrity, and the even smaller world of Scottish ‘sporting’ celebrity, Souness is still considered an A-lister by those that book ‘talent’ to fill space…

…plus there’s the bonus that, according to BBC guidelines, he’s cost-neutral as he’s plugging his hagiography.

“Kenny Miller shock favourite to replace Pedro Caixinha as Rangers boss…

Didn’t you read over the page?  

There’s an article entitled, ‘Bookmaker parts fools from their money with spurious market…’

Mischief-making by Paddy Power*, cut’n’pasted by clickbait-hungry media.
