Quantcast

For others, winning anything is everything. Ofcom

101

Peter Lawwell’s letter to the broadcasting regulator, Ofcom, regarding Sky Television’s “grossly and irresponsibly misleading” sub-titles over Alfredo Morelos words, spoken in Spanish, will hopefully flush out the persons behind the act.

The letter states that the “effect and, [Celtic] believe, purpose of this misrepresentation was to broadcast offensive and incendiary allegations against Celtic Football Club and its supporters.

“Issues of racism and sectarianism are far too important to be manipulated in this way by any broadcaster or third party.”

Sky’s retraction and apology is not sufficient.  We would like to know which members of the media are prepared to broadcast untrue “offensive and incendiary allegations” against the club ourselves as fans.  It would help confirm long-held suspicions of standards in our media.

My cynicism suggests there will be a fall guy, he will say he acted alone and will take all the blame.  For a bung.

None of that will matter come 2pm on Sunday, when we fight for a place in the Scottish Cup quarterfinal.  This is cup football, when we are told, “anything can happen”.  These days, in Scotland, cup competitions have taken on a prominence seldom known in world football.

Apart from Celtic, no one has won a major trophy of any description since Hibs won the Scottish Cup four years ago.  There is a desperation in some places to win a trophy, to look for signs our dominance is slipping.

The same importance is placed on the cups at Celtic.  Brendan Rodgers rested players for a Europa League game ahead of a League Cup tie against Hearts.  Celtic’s dominance has attributed the League and Scottish Cups a status they both struggled to attain in the decades before, when the league was all.  Now, for Celtic, winning everything is our aim, and for the others, winning anything is everything.

  1. See one of the click bait sites,reporting on the numbnuts Celtic fans who spout gash on Twitter,have valued Eddy at 13.5 million.Who are these people?We should be told

  2. The weather may be a bigger problem than some realise.

     

     

    1: If Clyde game postponed we play cup game midweek instead of Hearts.

     

     

    2: If we beat Copenhagen we need 2 future midweek slots

     

     

    3: This means we will have no available midweek date to play Hearts game until 25th March. (Before our final pre-split game against Hibs the following Saturday)

     

     

    4: if Huns game is also postponed ( and they somehow were also to qualify for next Europa round ) they will have to find 2 slots ( as they have yet to arrange their game in hand)

     

     

    Options for extending league are not available due to Euro’s this summer.

     

    I think every effort will be made to play this weekend.

     

     

    The Onlooker

  3. So according to Craig Whyte and his book….a “Ragers” players performance was badly affected due to said player having a STD…….

     

     

    Now with that “insight”, obviously it should have been renamed “IPOX” officially ?

    “Griffiths COULD face charge”

     

     

    promoted by the above to the UK wide main football page, BBC Online

     

     

     

     

    “Sevco coaches banned”

  10. BOURNESPICE re Insolvency law,

     

     

    With the exception in Scotland concerning Rangers football club/company

  11. Turkeybhoy

     

     

    This is Futbal values Eduoard at £13,5 million

     

    HITC values Morelos at £50million

     

    Now it appears Hagi is worth £100 million

     

     

    These crackpots are being fed these crap stories by someone. Likely Level 5,

     

     

    Rangers must have a real financial problems for these stories and the other Morelos shite appearing

    Is that right what a load of crap £13,500.000 for tall Eddy aye in there dreams

     

    neh I personally would value tall Edddy around £100,000.000 put it this way if

     

    Southampton FC can get £75,000,000 a few years ago for Virgil Vandyke from

     

    Liverpool FC then £100,000.000 nowadays is the going rate gone are the days

     

    when mainly English Club’s think they can come to our Club sniffing around

     

    to get our best players on the cheap/fly tell the PL & Co to go & sling their

     

    hook football nowadays is a big money business which takes time & a lot of

     

    sensible research in acquiring good players we don’t operate a bargain gift

     

    shop cause when we acquire good players we are not going to let them go

     

    cheaply in the nowadays Transfer Auction & High Wage Packets Market that

     

    is a no Brainer so sand dancers/chancers yeah sling your hook Hail ! Hail !
