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!

I just hope McLeish doesn’t buy into the old idea that Scotland should be well represented by players from the establishment club. Regardless of ability or form.

How many Scottish-qualified players do you think TRFC will field regularly next season?

Less than three or more?

I note that Raman Bhardwaj of STV & Gavin Berry of the DR are both in Espana with TRFC. 

Cue feelgood reporting; Berry in today’s DR on-line is particularly toe-curling.

I’m sure we’d like to know who’s paying for Berry & Bhardwaj’s jolly; is it TRFC?  If so, shouldn’t their content be qualified by that-there product placement logo?

and maybe CW is beginning to regret selling his rights to H&J.

What else was he supposed to do?

He’s allegedly skint, can’t afford to proceed on his own, can’t get an ‘angel’ to finance it for him…

He’s taken a payment from H&J & will still get the satisfaction of his ‘day in court’, with all the financial risk/reward taken by them. 

If H&J win, it’ll open other avenues for Whyte to continue to litigate. If H&J lose, he’s got some money he didn’t have before out of it.

I wonder how many other names the DR’s Gordon Parks had on his list of ‘ RFC legneds’ to interview about Gerrard/McAllister before he got to Mel ‘Zico’ Sterland, who was at Ibrox for four months in 1989 (9 games, 3 goals)?

(Souness paid £800k or £1.08m for him, depending on the source & sold him for £600k to Leeds in the close season. A mere bagatelle of a sum to lose, dear chap!)

Gordon, I’ve got a wheelie-bin that needs cleaning if you run out of barrel-bottoms to scrape…

The last time we had a go at ‘Who could play Whyte’?, I suggested James McPherson from Taggart.

What about:

Alex Norton as Jim Traynor.

John Michie as Walter Smith.

Colin McRedie as Dave King.

…and, of course, Blythe Duff as Ally McCoist 061015
