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!

Is Regan a DIDDY?
A new one for the glossary:


Ewan Murray in the Guardian describes McLeish’s success in the EBT years at RFC as achieved ‘when faced with downsizing‘. Nice one Ewan. Not a word in the article about the tax avoidance & financial doping that went on.

I find the article itself somewhat muddled.

The first couple of paragraphs state that Eck is a well-respected, highly-thought-of football man, with extensive knowledge & contacts.

The rest of the piece seems to make out that, despite his qualifications, he’s a panic appointment & not really the right man for the job.

Anybody got any detailed knowledge of how Sportscotland disburses our lottery monies?

Whatever you do, don’t read this*:

*Joking, honestly.

Gary Ralston in the DR quoting Stewart Robertson:

“As trite as it sounds, the money is almost incidental. it’s about someone having belief in the club and the way it is being run as we move forward and normalise operations.”

If the money isn’t that important, why are you asking for it? Is it for a backstop? Has something occurred to other promised funds?

“Dave and the other investors remain firmly behind the club. The contingency is still there if we need money for a particular project or to head into the transfer market in the summer.”

This contingency; is that DCK/NOAL’s £6/7m? Are you not getting access to that promised funding at this time? Is it preferable to pay a high rate of interest to Close Bros. rather than ‘mates’ rates’ from DCK/NOAL/T3Bs? 

“We need to get to the position we’re a self sustaining football club. That has always been the target. We can’t keep going back to the well.”

You just have.

It’s general working capital, because finances are stronger in the summer when season ticket and SPFL money comes in.”

Consider that. It’s money to keep the lights on.

So many questions…

I’ve just been reading Murty (sic) McFly’s interview in today’s on-line Scotsman, eulogising Doc. Brown as the man for the Scotland job.

Quite, quite unbelievable & not an interjection from Stephen Halliday to ask if a 70 year old (who would probably be part-time) manager would be the way forward.

Never mind, Scotland fans, let’s ‘Go back, back to the future!’

I don’t want to derail the important discussions re our ‘requirements’ for a new CEO (where I’ve already stated my PoV), but was anyone watching the Liverpool-Spurs game just now? I’m confused by the first Spurs penalty, even though it didn’t influence the outcome. 

The decision for the officials wasn’t whether Kane was goal-side of the second-last defender, which he was, but whether Loveren deliberately played at the through ball. 

When it was decided that Loveren had intentionally played at the ball, then Kane was onside. Had the ball struck the defender & rebounded to Kane, then he would have been offside.
