Appellate body CEO taking sides


So the chief executive of the appellate body awaiting a decision to appeal says, “It’s crucial with league reconstruction being such an important issue for the game that we now draw a line under what’s happened”.

According to the SPL Commission the president of that same appellate body was one of the “directors of Oldco [which]must bear a heavy responsibility” for what happened.

Responsibility, however, is an unnecessary concept for the chief executive of the appellate body, who told the media “It’s not about trying to find scapegoats to take responsibility for what’s happened in the last 12 months.”

Note use of language, those responsible are now “scapegoats”.

Scapegoat, def: A person or group made to bear the blame for others or to suffer in their place.

Let’s not look for scapegoats.  Instead let’s stick to who Lord Nimmo Smith’s Commision blame, “the directors of Oldco”.  Including the appellate body’s president.

The appellate body is unfit as an appellate body and as a football association.  SPL clubs must look for a new playing environment.  Let the SFA and SFL run the grassroots game. They appear to want this anyway and I am sure SPL clubs will flourish when no longer restricted to opposition from Scotland.

  6. I really believe we will beat this mob on Wednesday.



    Juventus boss Antonio Conte could rest some of his first team regulars in this week’s Champions League game against Celtic.



    With a 3-0 first leg advantage, Conte is pondering changes to his usual starting XI for Wednesday’s return in Turin.



    Stephan Lichtsteiner, Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal are candidates to be ‘dropped’ given that they are one yellow card away from suspension.



    Giorgio Chiellini, scorer of the goal in the 1-1 draw at Napoli on Friday, may also be given a breather after just returning to full fitness.



    Mauricio Isla is being tipped to start on the right of Conte’s 3-5-2, while Paul Pogba may net a place in the middle.



    Kwadwo Asamoah, who didn’t start in Naples, will return to the line-up, as should Alessandro Matri in attack.

    Not being an account I have seen many sets of figures on CQN for Rangers and I have never really understood them the latest set of figures are no different.Charles Green is making positive noises about there finances and says they have no debt but one thing I do know is you cant continue to run a business at a loss as if you do you will eventualy go out of business but like a cat Rangers seem to have 9 lives. H.H.

  8. That stinkin’ 5Live just keeps on playing every morning with that slag Victoria Derbyshire, the most miserable tales of addiction and child abuse. I think the woman is sick and on a par with Jimmy Savile : she gets her jollies from others’ unimagineable suffering.


    She makes me sick. Someone with a bit of clout send her these words I have written.


    Otherwise, she’ll just get some equally sick acolyte toady flunky to read them and then bin them.


    I really am incensed, and the ONLY reason I have listened to her shows is just to make sure I’m not imagining it all.


    And I know I’m not alone in these perceptions.


    She makes the worst of the Yankee shock jocks look like St Francis. of Assisi.


    But she does it in that oh-so-nice-noncey-English-public school way.


    She needs put up against the wall.


    Hand me the bullet.


    Hand me the rifle.


    Without a thought of remorse.


    Job well done.


    Bring on the revolution.


    Put Cameron’s head behind hers.


    I mean…..why waste a bullet, eh?!
