Comment on We’re Gonny Need Another Baw. by StevieBC.
From SFA website;
"Notice of Claim | Daniel Bachmann, Kilmarnock FC Friday 22 February 2019 Player: Daniel Bachmann, Kilmarnock FC Match: Rangers FC v Kilmarnock FC on Wednesday 20 February 2019 Competition: The Scottish Cup Offence: A2 – Violent Conduct Claim: Wrongful Dismissal Fast Track Tribunal Hearing: Friday 22 February 2019"
Well, with the SFA CEO's recent, staunch defence of Scottish Refs, I'm guessing this ridiculous red card will be upheld?
However, if a red card is rescinded is there AUTOMATIC demotion or action against the ref? (I don't know.)
And as an aside, I had a few wee bets on the TRFC v Killie game. I thought it would be a close game, but sending off a goalkeeper in only 25 minutes following a highly contentious off the ball incident changed the game completely.
Whether a red was justified or not, I think everyone would agree that the ref's decision materially influenced the outcome of the game.
My perspective is: why bet on games at all when the results are not solely dependent on the teams’ performances?
[Agreed, betting is a mug’s game, but you have to have some vices…]

This will take some beating!
From The Sun today, in an article where Jim Traynor is complaining about his interview aired last Tuesday on the BBC;
"…Traynor claims he had presented examples of when the BBC had been “less than fair and even inaccurate when reporting on Rangers”, only for the broadcaster not to air his complaints…"
Truly breathtaking stuff.
If anyone should have complaints about the less than accurate reporting of all things 'Rangers' by the BBC..
it's the long suffering Internet Bampots.
I always thought Traynor was just a thick, loud, bullying type.
But the man is clearly delusional.
[And right up his own @rse!]
We’re Gonny Need Another Baw.
JC, I'm guessing you're holding out for SFA President?
[You probably know more about their own rules & regulations, or 'guidelines'.]
I quickly scanned their 'Equal Opportunities' form, which looked fairly standard.
Also fairly standard is this extract from their form;
"…equal opportunities monitoring form
The Scottish FA is committed to ensuring that applicants and employees from all sections of the community are treated equally and not discriminated against on the grounds of… religion…"
So for example, the SFA Diversity & Social Inclusion manager should have at her fingertips right now;
The religious diversity,
– of Category 1 referees
– of all SFA staff

JC, go on, go on, go on… burn your bus pass and apply!
You can clearly show evidence of your Admin proficiency by showing all your letters of complaint to – erm – the SFA, SPFL, CAS, HMRC, BBC, etc…
You could be a valuable infiltrator for the Internet Bampots!

Clickbait headline in the DR;
"Rangers thumping Marseille while Celtic drew with Rennes has given Ibrox fans reason to believe – Hotline"
Yes, because meaningless, kickabout friendlies – where the objective is not to get injured – is a reliable indicator for the season ahead.
May as well avoid inconveniencing any of the other 41 senior clubs – and just handover the Treble to Ibrox now…
When the Rangers liquidation process has been completed…
will there be a huge, celebratory party at Ibrox – for screwing over its creditors including HMRC?
…or will there be radio silence at Ibrox and across the SMSM?
In which case, IMO, all other Scottish football fans should have a date marked in the calendar…
to celebrate the demise of the biggest cheating club in Scottish history.

"12TH MAN? Rangers appear to have brought the number 12 shirt out of ‘retirement’
David Fowler 11 Jul 2019, 15:19
RANGERS appear to have brought the No12 jersey out of retirement. Gers announced in 2012 that they would dedicate the number to fans who supported the club through administration and liquidation…"
Number 12 jersey for Club 12 ?
Can't imagine TRFC is bothered about any potential admin / registration errors.
Bryson will be on the case to generate some original BS to baffle UEFA, if required.
And this 'potential' transfer for TRFC of a player supposedly rated at c.£4M to £4.5M is curious indeed.
From what the Internet Bampots know as fact – from the prior years' RIFC/TRFC accounts, the current Close loan, the lawsuits piling up etc. – TRFC doesn't have a 'proverbial pot'.
The SMSM copy/paste information in this case seems a bit more specific.
So, how is TRFC going to spin this?
Player was simply greedy in his personal terms?
IF TRFC actually buys a real player for c.£4M I will have to just give up trying to understand what the hell is really going on with the Ibrox finances.
Interesting article in the DR;
"Jake Hastie the Rangers odd man out as winger suffers tracksuit mix-up
The 20-year-old has been fitting in well with his team-mates but was sporting a different look from his Ibrox pals on Tuesday.
By Record Sport Online
Their preparation has been perfect for their upcoming tie against the side from Gibraltar.
But Rangers ' kit provider Hummel appear to be still working their way towards match sharpness.
Jake Hastie appears to be fitting in with the rest of the squad, he was the the odd one out when it comes to his training gear.
The 20-year-old's jacket was the only one with the arrows pointing up on his left sleeve, rather than pointing downwards like the rest of his Rangers team-mates.
And it's not the first time this has happened to Rangers' players in recent times, last season Ryan Kent wore a different shirt to that of his team-mates.
Ryan Jack was another who suffered a fashion failure, after his strip was missing a badge last season in a Europa League game against UFA, with the Hummel logo also off the kit."
A rather abrupt ending to the article there, and raises the question: "What was the point of the article?"
A clue could be in the fact that no DR 'journalist' is putting their name to the article, as it's by "Record Sport Online".
Which could mean it's a straightforward copy/paste instruction from Traynor.
There has been much online mockery of the dodgy looking kit, so maybe Traynor felt the need to 'jokingly' address these inconsistent tracksuit / jersey markings etc.
this article is clearly laying the blame squarely with Hummel, making them look unprofessional and incompetent.
Or, that Hummel – as a large sportswear manufacturer – has NO quality control whatsoever: it just punts out its products without even checking them, to make sure there are no defects, etc.
If I worked for Hummel on the TRFC account I would be fizzing, (even more). Hummel is already embroiled in all the legal drama around Ibrox and its 'difficult' sales channels.
Now, TRFC is accusing Hummel of being incompetent in the production of clothing.
I don't know where TRFC got its dodgy kit from.
But, I don't think it came from Hummel, (I could be wrong of course).
But regardless: surely Hummel will be demanding an apology – or a clarification – via the SMSM?
