Raith Rovers Revenge

259

It’s less than four days since the SFA, SPL and SFL chief executives met at Hampden to devise a plan to destroy and rebuild Scottish football within three weeks, coincidentally, allowing a Newco access to the second tier of the Scottish league pyramid.

Just as the SPL clubs rejected Neil Doncaster’s strong advocacy that they co-opt Newco directly into the top tier, Scottish Football League clubs are already showing an unwillingness to be boxed into a corner.

Before today’s meeting of the SFL board Raith Rovers have already pinned their colours to the mast, “the board of directors of Raith Rovers FC is unanimous in its view that we shall certainly not cast our vote in favour of any integrated plan that in our view compromises sporting integrity by involving the admission of any ‘Newco’ directly into Division One”.

Earlier this year Raith were caused considerable cost and inconvenience after Rangers manager, Ally McCoist, publicly demanded to know the identities of the SFA Judicial Panel who penalised the club for not paying social taxes.  Rangers already knew that a Rovers director was on the panel.

    Padlock on the ibrox gates and the purchase of another club is a certainty.

    On Jim Spence – I believe he isn’t based in the West of Scotland so he most certainly can see the wood for the trees.

    Well done Raith Rovers! Maybe next we could have a statement from the Chairman of Airdrieonians (United), Jim Ballantyne. Then again maybe not!

    Pure happenstance, I assure you.

    Wouldn’t it be more profitable, and much less hassle, for Green to simply sell on his assets to the highest bidder?

    ****Breaking News****

     

     

    ”Teams from Powerleague Hamilton have completed voting on the entry of Newco into the Sunday morning 10am league.

     

     

    10 votes for NO v 0 yes votes.

     

     

    Is believed newco have now approched the BBs league to seek entry to their league.

     

     

    More news as and when we get it.”

    I see Lee Wallace has pledged his future to Servco – of course the reason is that under the transfer he is entitled to the same pay as with oldco something he wouldn’t get anywhere else.

  10. Paul67 – have you noticed that each and every wound they are receiving is directly attributable to an action they themselves took freely

     

     

    Complete self-flaggelation

    They have sown the wind, and they reap the whirlwind.

     

     

    Who would have thought that decades of treating other Scottish clubs with contempt would have consequences? (thumbsup)

  12. compare and contrast with our very own Broxy Bears:

     

     

    Bradford Bulls go into administration

     

    Bradford Bulls have entered administration and could be liquidated within 10 days if a buyer is not found. The Bulls announced in March they needed £1m to stay afloat and are thought to owe over £600,000 now.

  13. Hamiltontim, absolutely no idea. To be honest, I didn’t expect this from Rovers (Albion Rovers is another story).

     

     

    As we know, momentum can build quickly. I don’t fancy the SFA/SPL/SFL plan’s chances.

     

     

    ASonOfDan, it would give them a way forward.

     

     

    Malarkey, 11:40, :-)

     

     

    Celtic Mac, perhaps not.

     

     

    RogueLeader, very true.

    Face it, pal, you’re a podium chaser like one or two others on here.

     

     

    But not me … no sir, never!

    I keep posting that Duff&Duffer in the end were selling rangers as a property deal not a football club. Green doesn’t need a team or a league to play in. Someone else will buy Cowdenbeath or the like and rebrand them rangers.

    Nonsense.

     

     

    And by the way, you will have noticed that I had actually read the article before posting.

     

     

    Otherwise I could have been first.

    Fair play to you, I asked you last week what were your future predictions. You suggested that a vote may not even take place.

     

     

    I doubted that but it looks like you were correct.

    RogueLeader – Newton’s third law of hunnery:

     

     

    Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
