Is getting plenty airings on Jambos Kickback too though the majority are of the opinion it’s fake.
Oh and the maroon pound won’t be attending EEP next season if they’re relegated - we’re on the hit list of ‘yes’ voters apparently.

And on the Dundee delegation, with their strange behaviours and changing of vote, I would take anything they say with a dollop of salt.

On a side note I do wonder what getting threatened by Ross McArthur is like. Having met and spoke with him a few times, I do find that rather humourous to be honest.

Amazing how many directors and football chiefs do business on WhatsApp. I thought they'd all be Snapchatting and sending photos on Insta.

A lot of Hearts fans are sadly just as bad as The Rangers support. Used to live near Tynecastle and they were bad for daubing a particular 3 letter abbreviation on advertising boards any time Celtic were coming.

Any Jambo claiming they're being hard done by is at it. They deserve to come down. There was no hope in hell they'd recover.

The claims are that they were shopped but only to conceal the identity of the account.

To pick on Ross McArthur who is not really a household name is a bit strange. There is as far as I am aware no evidence what the "threat" was and in any case what one man construes as a threat might merely be another stating the facts.

Unless they can provide solid evidence that those screenshots are real, they should remove them immediately. TBH, that entire forum should be shut down for the language used on it.

Not necessarily the case, SP. Defamation can also apply to the medium through which the offending item was published. In this instance, the Follow Follow website.

That is why people should always be extremely careful about what they say on this site. It can be extremely costly.

Not so very long ago, a fan site - I think it was a Blackpool one - got itself into all sorts of strife over careless comments.

I look forward to the day when Facebook is subject to UK legislation not US.

The day they have a UK Call Centre.They stop kids under 13 having an account.They stop folk having fraudulent multiple accounts.The day when they assist Police Scotland and stop being so obstructive.The day when they answer U.K. Complaints.The day when they are not quite so ambivalent to hacking and business fraud.The day when they block illegal Wolfpack Hunters with entrapment which ruins professional Police surveillance.The day when they block fake news.Finally,to return to this topic,they seem unconcerned about defamatory or threatening messages which can so easily become criminal.

I wonder how many folk,who have Facebook,realise they signed up to US Laws eg on freedom of speech?


However the article you quote is undoubtedly a significant and encouraging start.They come across as scared to embrace the term Publisher as it would lose them protection out with the USA.

What has gone on in the past week unless independently proven otherwise then the voting process was corrupt. Our chairman voted out of self interest only along with others. Integrity out the window, for me an embarrassing moment for our club. Only a few Inverness east fife showed true integrity above everything else. And before anyone mentions prize money. Rules already proven that league could have provided loans against prize money, voting to end season and relegate any clubs is simply not football.

There were several clubs in play off spots throughout the leagues who gave up their chance of promotion. Inverness and East Fife showed no more integrity than anyone else - every club voted with some degree of self interest and they all thought they were acting with integrity. Sporting Integrity is in the eyes of the beholder and most parties self define what it means. There is no agreed definition - the concept of sporting though used to mean just accepting the ref (or by extension the League’s) decision without any quibbling

I think the self interest comes from the fact that maybe once football is able to start again, there might be some clubs that won't be around to play the games.
Getting prize money now means that they will be able to survive to play a new season

Personally I think we did the right thing even if it meant we dropped a place and we got reduced prize money. The principle of going with what you have achieved so far if a match or tournament has to be cut short has already been established in both cricket (with D/L) and golf (eg decide tournament on 3 and not 4 round score if 4th day can't be played). Probably the least controversial is to decide based on simple points per game scored this season (which they have done). Obviously frustrating for Partick Th given their game in hand and QoS's poor recent form, but also frustrating for cricketers to lose on D/L.

Wonder what the tables would have looked like if they had instead just gone with last home or away result between two teams or average scores from games played against specific opponents this season as deemed scores for unplayed games. That way if your outstanding matches were against tougher opposition on average you may not do as well as if they had been against a lower team. However, suspect it probably wouldn't make much difference seeing as most teams still had quite a few games to play.

Yes, but that's not the Pars voting for self-interest. We'd probably get through the situation without the prize money.

If what you say is true, we've voted to end the season, dropped a place and the associated prize money, any change to get promoted and all so some clubs can get a cash injection to keep them afloat.

Regardless of anyone's opinion regarding what should have happened, the Pars have not acted in their own best interest.

It wasn't just the right decision - it was the only decision given that there is no clarity on when the country can get back to something like normality.

There's no way playing behind closed doors would be acceptable to the authorities so focusing on when games could resume to determine final placings, followed by playoffs, is unrealistic.

Far from ideal of course.

As much as I would like to see the season played out, I have to agree with VEE.

The immediate difference for Scotland is that our player contracts are drawn up to 31 May, as opposed to 30 June in England. There is not the slightest chance of playing out the Scottish leagues before the 31 May. This means that if games are played in the summer (realistically even behind closed doors from July to September) they will be played out with very different squads. Also, what happens if a squad gets smitten with the virus at a critical time during these closed-door games? All very problematic. More than that, this all impacts and delays Season 20/21.

In my view, the vast majority of clubs voted in a way that favoured their own interests. No surprise there. DAFC had relatively little at stake, but I agree with DA-Go in his analysis that DAFC did not vote in their self interest.

Lets get Season 20/21 underway at the normal time in early August if we possibly can. Who knows if that will be possible in the normal way, or perhaps behind closed doors for a period if necessary.

I would love to see permanent reconstruction. This gives a chance to mitigate the down-side for clubs being relegated. Much now depends on the diplomatic skills of Ann Budge and her colleagues in the working party. Personally I hope that there will be no relegations this year, even if the reconstruction is temporary.

How do 22 onfield players, plus officials, keep social distancing of a minimum of 2 metres - then there's the substitutes etc.

Imagine the scenario at a corner kick, for example.

There would be a public outcry from folks who have been cooped up for weeks on end if professional footballers were to be considered a special case and allowed to congregate.

One rule for some and a different one for others was what got Catherine Calderwood her marching orders.

Incidentally, reference "around the world" - where else has sporting activities resumed - just curious ?

This is all Pars Kebabs fault. Because I looked at this car crash of a forum, it's now popped up on my tablet this morning.

The Bears are going mental because Derek Ferguson said on Sportsound yesterday that if Therangers have any solid evidence on Neil Doncaster from their alleged whistleblower, they should make it public.

Quite a number of them have suggested that Derek is not the brightest and that brother Barry is the brains in his family....

ohh don't know about that after Lord Nimmo effectively gave the green light for the old Rangers and new to still be considered the one and the same (so in the eyes of one of our top judges they were not two different entities) on the back of his EBT ruling.
anyway after his ruling wee Barry was one of the first to start transferring his assets into his wife's name (about end of 2011) more than 5 years before declaring himself bankrupt.
it could be argued he did all this as he had an idea the EBT case might go against Rangers and he and others would be chased for a few mill,but as has been stated above he is to stupid to think along those lines.

on another note all the arguments regarding oldco and newco mean nothing as they are the same club recognised by FIFA and UEFA,the rules state if a club goes into liquidation and effectively no longer exist they loose their history.so titles,cups and honours all gone but in the eyes of our top judge they are the same so the two bodies had to recognise them as one and the same but it riles the blue hoards up big style saying they died so carry on regardless lol.

If old Rangers didn't die, then why aren't they due their creditors money? They were liquidated. They literally ceased to exist. You can exist in some circumstances and not exist in others. Or if you can, I'm away to borrow £1m then say it was another version of me that did it.

ok jake in about 2013/14 not 100% sure in what year as read about it a long time ago and simply put round about this time a group of Celtic fans put advertisements in news papers sating the club had ceased to exist and the reference to old firm no longer existed as Rangers had gone into liquidation and subsequently became known by another name after 2012. as i stated above lord Nimmo recognised them as the same club because of this Doncaster also stated they were the same club (also they retained the same football registration number) more importantly the Advertising Standard Agency also recognised them as the same club so on the back of that the main footballing body FIFA followed suit.
they are in the eyes of the law the SFA the SPFL and UEFA the same club,its all out in the open jake if you search it wont be hard to find.
by the way don't borrow a million then declare yourself bankrupt as i'am almost certain you will never be allowed to just spend it and forget about ever paying it back lol

Okay, so I borrow £1m, spend it all, declare myself bankrupt but then claim it was another person who borrowed the money and I am still indeed me, but with no debts.

You can't be liquidated and be the same company.

I had a pupil who's dad was a miner, he must have taken redundancy, then he got a very large payout. This was around 1980 so it was before the strike. His dad then spent all the money on sensible household items including a very nice Mercedes Benz. He then applied and got Social security. Not quite as bad as spending a million but!

Anyone trying to argue that Rangers are the same club despite going into liquidation - and then the old Rangers having a vote on whether the new Rangers could parachute into the SPL - clearly has Sevconian tendencies.

The politics of the situation does not blur the actual reality.

hope above post is not aimed at me DA as i definitely don't have any leanings towards any of the Glasgow two in fact i really don't care who beats them as long as they loose,all i'am posting is facts and see to be honest why so many Pars fans actually care whether the are the same or not surprises me.
why do so many care they have no impact on our club whatsoever and the only good thing about the two is the chance of getting them in the cup due to the extra finance it brings in.

I don’t really have a view on this, but our club started off in 1885 as a members’ club and then the enterprise was transferred to a company (the current DAFC) in 1920. Does anyone seriously think that our “club” was not formed in 1885?

So the same entity changed legal form?

Presumably there wasn't two different versions of DAFC existing at the one time - with one of them being in the process of being liquidated?

That's what I don't get. The old version of "me" can't decide what "new me" gets as we can't both exist at the same time. It makes no sense.

Anyway, it's gone off topic!

Let's us all remember that they watched their club die, I guess.

Then form a new one out of the ashes and now have to spend the rest of their lives trying to argue it didn't happen that way.

"But Lord Nimmo said they could keep their history..." PMSL.

Here's your "law" that you refer to:

I know, you have to feel sorry for them...

...and add to that they'll also have to try and argue that celtic's 9 in a row doesn't really count, in case they win again next year to make it 10 and beat their record
