Quantcast

Beaton threshold on kicking, stamping and the rest

1148

We deservedly lost at Ibrox on Saturday, so it would have been inappropriate to apportion any responsibility towards referee John Beaton, for the free reign Newco player Alfredo Morelos had to kick Scott Brown, stamp on Anthony Ralston and assault the genitals of Ryan Christie during the game.

These things occasionally happen in football (although seldom in such quantities) and are picked up by the SFA review process.  What is exceptional about these circumstances is that the review process is unable to act as the referee claims to have witnessed each incident and determined no action was worthy of a caution or more.

Beaton will have mitigated his decisions with some or other explanation, perhaps with “It wasn’t that bad a stamp” type comment.  This is how the process works.  The system is rightly designed to protect referees and allow them latitude to make decisions, including the occasional mistake.

It is not always easy to view common assault for what it is, in fact, it is easy to get carried away with an occasion and raise your threshold for such matters.  It is only human to be affected this way.  But this is bad refereeing.

Beaton could have taken the easy route out and claimed he missed one or more of the incidents, each was off the ball, after all.  That would have allowed the review panel to dispassionately decide if such attacks are to be prohibited, or encouraged, in our game.  Instead, he affirmed that in his view, there was nothing in Morelos behaviour worthy of a caution.

I have no idea what Dedryck Boyata said to earn his red card from John Beaton against St Johnstone earlier this season but I defended the referee’s decision that day.  You have to trust match officials to competently carry out their duties.  Do I still trust John Beaton’s views on kicking players, stamping, genital punching and the like?  No.  His views and significantly out of line with mine.

I don’t see a conspiracy in what happened this week, just a referee who was not up to the job.  A good referee would have cautioned Morelos for the first incident (kick on Brown).  This may have prevented the more serious attacks on Ralston and Christie, but the Newco player was not even spoken to after any of the incidents.

These are not easy games to officiate but this was not a game full of controversy or incident, only one player and one referee lost the plot.

    Back to the £58m paid out last year

     

    We made over £40m from participation in the Champions league, then a Europa league game

     

    All extra cash Celtic will not have budgeted for ???

     

    I would be surprised if at least £10m of this was not paid out in bonus money ??

     

    to numerous individuals, be that players, management, coaches, etc,

     

    we know it is a KPI for our CEO, whose bonus has just been paid out ( and before anyone questions this, yes the bonus to our CEO, was for an ecpxtended period of time, not just last season, although last seasons team performance did help it greatly to grow)

     

    This is not directed at PL’s bonus, the point is the growth in club expenditure, would have been supported through achieving Champions league football

    Ditto your posts.

     

     

    Oliver Burke wasn’t up for anywhere else but Celtic and we might move A.N. Other out on loan, he’s

     

    a ‘hired hand’ but at £15M ( twice ) between Germany and England he’s bound to hit the ground running

     

    shirley?

     

     

    It’s all about continuity to 10, but we can’t buy the full back or centre back we desire until they say ‘yes’ we’ll come, we spent £2M on Andy Hinkel the equivalent then of a £5M or £6m signing now, but he wasn’t a rip roaring success.

     

     

    So its all a gamble, August was a disaster because ‘The King of Glasgow’ wanted home to France, on the last day.

  7. Good Evening and congratulations to all 87 who survived….oops. wrong competition ?. Leicester and Fulham pickers will be breathing a huge sigh of relief :-)

     

    So no-one has really leapt ahead of the field after week 1 – having avoided the two most obvious big scorers this week in selecting the games in Week 1 ( pretty sure most of us would have been sitting on 14 goals otherwise ), things are close, with no team scoring more than 3 goals.

     

     

    Next weeks games look like they could be fairly close – on paper, but as we all know…..it’s a funny old game !

     

     

    Just pick your entry and get it to us at cqnpredictor@gmail.com before kick-off in your teams game ( NOTE – we have a friday Evening game this week, so don’t get caught out ).

     

    for all you youngsters, you can also Whatsapp your entries…whatever that is ?. don’t forget to let us know if you want to play a joker, otherwise, unlike Cheatin’ Beaton, we won’t see it !

     

    Fixtures for next week below.

  8. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Pog at 6.20. Is Zagadou the 19/20 year old Dortmund centre back ? He is huge.

     

     

    He’s impressed in Dortmund games I have watched this season.

  9. SETTINGFREETHEBEARS@10:46 yesterday

     

    Thank you for your response. However, the Dubai video appears to be from 12 months ago.

     

    Celtic PR staff really should do a better job of letting fans know who is in camp, and who, if any, of the three mooted new players, will attend.

     

    I can’t find any confirmation that either Weah or Bayo has signed on the dotted line. It may exist, and I have missed it.

  10. Beaton brings it on himself,

     

    He is a bigot and a cheat.

     

     

    No sympathy, his scowling coupon at Dedryick tells me all I need to know.

     

     

    He brings it on himself.

     

     

    There, that’s the comments (not the cheat bit) NFL gets on a weekly basis in this infested nation

     

     

    You know what Mr Beaton, you could just stop refereeing. Seemples

    Yes that’s him. Apparently Dan-Axel Zagadou is Parisian rhyming slang for brick sh#thouse. ?

  12. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Pog, he looks like a younger Bobo with more technique and pace..

     

     

    When I first saw him I thought he was in his mid twenties.

     

     

    His inexperience shows at times but that’s to be expected.

  13. Ii see that Ryan Jack had to hurriedly leave a bar in Aberdeen after a large group of customers started singing and hurling abuse at him, and doorstaff had to intervene.

     

    He’s more stupid than i first thought, if he thinks he can come back up to Aberdeen and not get abused by Dons Fans who’ve made it clear that they think he betrayed them and their club by signing for Sevco.

     

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    As soon as i saw Frank MacAvennie and Rod Stewart in that video i sussed you were on to something.

  17. Apologies for the delay in getting back… twas oft oot…

     

     

    GLASSTWOTHIRDSFULL @ 3:22 PM,

     

     

    Playing at pace is more than just about having pacy players. We have played quickly in some games this season and got good results…

     

     

    So very true, now, I remember when Brendan Rodgers first got here, it was said he would be backed and had a big transfer budget…

     

     

    Some of the players he wanted were Welsh Internationals… they had a blinder at Euro 2016, got to the semi final and the players’ value rocketed…

     

     

    Two we were aiming for were Joe Allen and Robson Kanu… with Roberts already at the Club, Dembele coming in and the recruitment of Sinclair…

     

     

    I’ve always wondered what would have happened of Those initial transfers worked out.

     

     

    As I’ve repeatedly said, we have a systemic problem in our recruitment and until a Celtic Manager is allowed to build a squad… We will struggle to be at our best… breaks my heart to think of the squad we could have now.

     

     

    CELTIC40ME @ 5:00 PM,

     

     

    I am an accountant, at least a trainee but that’s by the by [It’s kinda not;]. You’ve misunderstood Paul’s articles if you think he has said we aim to break even without euro revenue and a profit on player sales.

     

     

    Well as I’ve said many a time… for me our issues lie with a systemic failure in our recruitment… it’s not changed this transfer window… hope I’m proved wrong.

     

     

    Best of luck in your chosen career.

     

     

    Hail Hail

     

     

    Ok,

    There is a huge fat shadow hanging over that station.As for Celtic,well,we are chasing a loan deal for Weah,the son of George Weah,the presenters comment”Not much to live up to there”in a sneering Sky Sports way.
