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

    As mentioned earlier, the fans are led to believe that the SFA is, in effect, the senior clubs themselves.

     

    So, in the current climate of mistrust and / or derision of the Category 1 refs…

    If I was the CEO of an SPL club I would be instructing, (I.e. not asking), the SFA CEO to arrange a presentation for all the clubs' CEO's.

     

    This would be a presentation given by Ms. Hala Ousta who is the Diversity & Social Inclusion manager at Hampden.

    I would expect her to provide anonymised data on every diversity aspect of the Scottish Refereeing structure: from the Referees Panel, to Category 1 refs, and right down to entry level referees.

    The driver for this presentation would be to address the perception of a risk of groupthink amongst the Referees' ranks, and who could also be perceived as being resistant to change, and improvement.

     

    Any aspersions regarding the backgrounds of referees could be objectively and professionally discussed in an open, transparent manner with the assistance of the Diversity & Social Inclusion Manager: it's her job.

    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!]

    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

    etc.

    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!

    Ex Ludo, why would Gary McAllister think of leaving Ibrox when he is within – potentially – touching distance of a league title – nevermind a LC medal?  indecision

     

     

    As an aside – and not that I'm on a commission with RT, honest comrade – but I watched a very interesting programme on RT called 'Renegade' – probably still on YouTube.

    Anyway on the current episode, it's the host with an ex-UK MSM journalist who is now independent, and a current UK University professor in journalism.  Debate was about lack of trust in MSM, etc.

     

    Couple of SFM relevant points I picked up;

    The journalist openly admitted that in the MSM she routinely copied/pasted several press releases daily for a variety of reasons, with lack of time and resources being top reasons. 

    But it's the first time I've heard the term 'copy/paste' being openly quoted about UK journalism.

     

    The professor mentioned that UK MSM is "massively over represented" by a narrow demographic with a private school and Oxbridge background – and there is a propensity for groupthink.

     

    As we know, it's not just the footy journos letting us down in the MSM.

    It's hard to believe that RIFC would be a delinquent tax payer, but who knows?

    As we saw with Craig Whyte, desperate times can result in desperate measures.

     

    I'm thinking that yes, there could be a significant overdue payment – but payable to any one of a myriad of exasperated suppliers.

    Mibbees a supplier had/has threatened to apply for a Winding Up Petition because RIFC is so overdue with its vendor payments?

    TT, you've omitted the devil incarnate: Hilary Clinton.

    Must be close for top spot?

     

    Andrew should get on the blower to our very own PR guru Traynor.  Well, nobody in the SMSM has ever been allowed to discuss King's dodgy past – including his 42 criminal convictions.

    Actually, if you read the above DR Rod Petrie article in full…

     

    you will quickly surmise that the guy is delusional.

    Not exaggerating: delusional.

     

    Read it for yourself.

    Headline from the DR;

    "Rod Petrie promises to address the Hampden bugbear that annoys every supporter

    …"

    ========

    Why is the SFA President – Rod Petrie – speaking to the media?

     

    Surely this operational matter should be publicly addressed by the £300K p.a. CEO – Ian Maxwell?
