Comment on We’re Gonny Need Another Baw. by macfurgly.

    The SlimJim weapon is one that they have been salivating over using for a long time. Let it fly past, it was never going to reach it's target, however much they need it to. Let it fly, and let them be isolated in their impotent fury at CFC's historical achievements, as well as those of Aberdeen and DUFC. They will persist forever, as history does not die, (other than with liquidation, in this context).

    If I may return to my earlier point, £6,000 fine?. Am I the only one observing squirrel formations here?

    From the latest sfsa newsletter:
    Hate crime at football – have your say
    This is a general reminder to notify you that  the Scottish Governemnt Hate Crime Bill Consultation is open for responses until 24th February and can be accessed via this link.


    This may be of  interest to some as it deals with the definition of sectarianism in Scots Law.

    On Sunday, after having read the latest SFSA newsletter (not to be confused with the SFA's Supporters Direct Scotland), I sent a pretty direct email to them saying that questionning FIFA and UEFA about transparency is one thing, but this begins at home. I specifically mentioned the 2011/12 TRFC licence issue and recent confusion over the refereeing / CO / Panel / Review process.

    Within 24 hours I had a detailed reply from Paul Goodwin reflecting many of the concerns expressed on here about the governance of Scottish football and an invitation to call him to discuss specific issues. I would reproduce the text of that reply here, but it contains some personal observations which I would rather not put into the public domain.

    Credit where it is due: the SFSA are working with few resources but seem to be doggedly taking these issues to the SFA and SPFL and pursuing them for answers, which I gather are not always readily forthcoming. I certainly did not doubt the sincerity of the conversation I have had.

    It is frequently expressed as a frustration that there is no organisation to coordinate fans. I can only say fair play to them for engaging with one ordinary supporter of no particular importance and that on that basis they are worth a visit at www.scottishfsa.org

    When Defoe realised that he had gone down over a tackle that hadn't occurred he picked himself up pronto to get on with the game, as that is the only way he might have avoided a booking for diving in the league he is accustomed to playing in. Up here, he had to stop running so he could be given a penalty.

    What interests me in the goal size debate is that the average height of males increased throughout the 20th. century and so what we are seeing now, with smaller female goalkeepers, is close to what was originally intended for the male game. This is what football was supposed to look like. If any changes are to be made it should be to increase the size of the goal frame for the male game.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that the height of the average man in Dundee in 1914 was 5 " 1.

    The SFA that will decide whether to "pursue Rangers" over the licence application of 2011 now has a President who sat on the Licensing Committee for part of that process and who was involved in arranging the 5WA. There may be others still in employment at the SFA who are even more conflicted.

    Regardless of which "Rangers" they may be considering going in pursuit of, they are so compromised as an organisation that they cannot have any part in any further process.

    In my opinion Maxwell’s tone is that of a weak and sycophantic Quisling, whose observations on Petrie’s character and the need to “humanise” him will be, or should be, deeply embarrassing for the new President as well as counter productive in attempting to improve fans’ perception of him.
