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

    Jim Traynor did an interview for Club 1872, which is clearly now not only the only source of new money but also the outlet for the real "statements" where they can say what they want but if there is any come back the club can deny liability.

    Truly mental stuff from Traynor (remember him confirming liquidation meant the club was dead). He always was a nasty piece of work, even more so now.

    It is a quality bit of deflection, pandering to the support. If you look at the forums just now the main topic seems to be how they are hard done by, how it is not a level playing field, who can they boycott and attack etc.

    Anyway, any sign of the PLC's interim results.

    Pitch invasions at any games is just wrong.

    As things stand it's really quite simple.

    They will continue to trade for as long as people are willing to provide them with loans. Whether those loans are repaid with worthless equity is pretty much irrelevant.

    The business has traded at a loss in every year of it's existence and continues to do so. Loans are an essential part of the "business model".

    I suppose it's possible that they might sell a player for 5 times any realistic valuation, the press are certainly trying to help with that. However that is at best unlikely.

    Rangers still exists, liquidation is a process and that process is ongoing.

    "There are no rules in scottish football to demote a liquidated club." because it is a nonsense, why would there be rules to cover it. 

    To go over old ground there was no demotion. A club applied to join the SPL (as was) and that application was rejected. The club then applied to join the SFL (as was) and that league accepted them into the lowest division.

    That is not demotion, relegation or anything else like that. It is applying to join in the first place.

    Making gestures towards opposing support.

    How is that different to someone showing 8 fingers. Other than he was doing it to tens of thousands and Brown was doing it to under 1,000.

    Speaking as a Celtic supporter and a big fan of Scott Brown, he was totally wrong in what he didafte the match towards the Rangers supporters. I have also seen a video of it and after he makes the 8 sign he walks away a bit, then turns and makes another gesture towards the Rangers support.

    He is in the wrong.

    The problem we now have is that people who make a "Shhh" sign, or cup their ears, or indicate a scoreline etc towards the opposition support will also be in the wrong and will have to be treated in the same way. Presumably for every division in the SPFL as the same rules must apply across the board.

    Bottom line, from now on no matter what abuse a player takes from the opposition support he must never react to it in any way. It could be argued that should always have been the case but it clearly wasn't. It has to be now.

    That makes sense, the Police have to investigate crime, they have to arrest people, interview them etc.

    So long as there are checks and balances, rules for them to adhere to, oversight of their actions then that's fair enough.

    In a civilized  democratic society we need a Police force capable of investigating crime, however they must also be subject to independent oversight.
