    This article on Etims, by Derek Crowther an ex Ref, is quite revealing.'


    I have no formal contact with Scottish football, referees etc., but that article confirms exactly what I thought is the current situation/process/reality. Sad, isn't it?

    Re Ian Maxwell's statement that there are '22 FIFA officials' in Scotland: there are actually 23 such officials listed on the FIFA website. Who knew Scotland had a FIFA-rated Futsal referee? I didn't!


    His statement is also slightly disingenuous in that of his 22 (presumably-proper) fitba' officials, 5 are female (1 referee & 4 assistant referees) & not usually tasked with male professional games. In fact, not one of the 5 (22.7% of the FIFA contingent) has an SPFL appointment in the coming week.


    NB. John Beaton has 2 Premiership games in 6 days. Somebody's keeping him sweet…

    I also note that Bachmann’s red card has been rescinded. I await Kamara being cited, but won’t hold my breath.

    Re my post at 1608:


    My reference to the SFA's JP should refer to Section 13, not 14.

    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    However, if a red card is rescinded is there AUTOMATIC demotion or action against the ref?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.)'



    Firstly, if Bachmann's red card is rescinded, then Kamara must be guilty of simulation as per the SFA's JP Section 14.


    Secondly, you'll never know if a referee is suspended or demoted. Confidentiality, don'tcha kenmailsurprise

    …King may be able to thumb his nose and hide in Sth Africa but others particularly Andrew Dickson and Stewart Robertson as Directors of TRFC would be most vulnerable…


    Working from my (probably faulty) memory, but didn't two 'office bearers' at TRFC give personal guarantees re the Elite/Hummel deal?

    I'm not sure it was both the names mentioned above, though.

    In Whose Interests
    Thanks John, that was my understanding.


    The series of posts above mine seemed to widen the field to include RIFC, hence my confusion.


    In Whose Interests
    Forgive me for asking, but in the discussion in the posts above is it TRFC or RIFC being referenced re potential administration events?

    The football club & its holding company parent seem to grow more intertwined by the day…

    I'm struggling to think of a RRM (ex-player or manager of RFC/TRFC, as it may be time for the Boards of RIFC & TRFC to 'circle the wagons') who would be qualified to be (or would want the position of) DoF at Ibrox.

    Level Sinko may also be scratching its singular head over that conundrum, hence the lack of speculation in the media.

    Possibly this will be another example of how the Group Chairman is not an asset, but a liability…



    In Whose Interests
    I've just been told that Mark Allan 'Warburtoned' himself as he's expected to be announced as Manchester United's Sporting Director (Edwin Van Der Saar having declined the post) sometime next week.

    Watch this space, I think, on that one!
