Record correct, SFA prepare to disband Appellate Panel

1122

This morning’s article in the Daily Record is not a work of fiction.  They reported that SFA chief executive Stewart Regan’s “bid to deliver a broad consensus over the way forward also involved discussions over the appellate tribunal’s transfer embargo on Rangers.”

In short, the SFA discussed changing their rules to disband the Independent Appellate Panel process before instructing Lord Carloway to sit in response to the Court of Session’s rejection of his previous judgement.

With two further Independent Judicial Tribunals still to sit in judgement on the actions of Rangers, for the illegal registration of players and non-payment of social taxes during the EBT era, the SFA will also subvert these rules before ‘Rangers’ are expelled from the Association.

After the meeting Regan left for his summer vacation without instructing Lord Carloway to convene the Appellate Panel.

That’s not all.

The scam to establish an SLP 2 in order to allow the SFA and SPL to co-opt ‘Rangers’ into that league is what the governing bodies have planned for your game.

If rules are changed AFTER a club is found guilty and in receipt of a penalty in order to nullify that penalty the game in this country is broke, ethically and financially.  Having established independent judicial panels to deal with serious rule breaches the SFA cannot do Rangers bidding without removing all judicial oversight.

We’re back to the days of George Peat walking in and out of hearings for the Celtic manager.

Most disturbingly of all, YOU are the cash cow for this outrageous enterprise.  With Rangers gone from the SPL Celtic fans bring all the commercial and television income into the game, and are set to buy more away ground tickets than all other clubs put together.

You are expected to continue to cough up for tickets to Tynecastle, Rugby Park etc, and subscribe to ESPN and Sky Sports – money which will divvied up among SPL 1 and SPL 2 teams, as well as they rest of the Scottish Football League clubs, to compensate for them missing out on a ‘Rangers’ game.

You will also pay more money for those tickets than any other group of fans in the league.  Why don’t you just write a cheque to Kilmarnock, Falkirk or Cowdenbeath today?

This nonsense will not bring another £1 into the game, all it will do is redistribute money from your pocket to clubs who care nothing for you.  Partick Thistle yesterday released a statement on their site, “We believe Scottish football needs to be restructured, financial distribution needs to be fairer for all clubs”.

“Financial distribution needs to be fairer”!  Patrick Thistle get to keep all their ticket sales, commercial and other income.  By “fairer” they mean they want some of your money.  If you agree with them, write them a cheque, but if you disagree, you better figure out what to do next.

Thoughts that some great victory has been achieved are premature.   Prepare for the next instalment.

Our domestic competition is, at best, uninspiring.  This disgusting land-grab for your cash will destroy our ability to compete in Europe, and it’s not just the senior team who will suffer.  The Celtic youth system costs millions to operate each year, don’t fantasise that it will survive intact.

Celtic currently employ 27 Scotland youth internationals.  They are almost single-handedly carrying the future of our national team.  This attempt to bleed your club dry will devastate all areas, with subsequent consequences for the Scotland team.

It’s not often I’ve told you the Daily Record have nailed a story but this one is on the money (your money).  I’m at a loss as to what to do next.

We cannot accept this.

    I actually liked Kharine but i think he played about 9 or 10 games for us, signed during the disastrous John Barnes era

    I kinda get my head round the hun Ogilvie “supporting” the huns but have to consider where Regan and Doncaster come from.

     

     

    They’re Engerlish, mibbees masons and being called in to assist others of the brotherhood.

     

     

    Seems no hard to figure.

     

     

    What you or I can say PL can’t.

    Pay for view will deliver SPL football to Celtic without Sky or them.

     

    ____________

     

     

    Agree and we might well be the ones to deliver it. Who knows CH67 in conjunction with BT/ and or ESPN (who desperately need European slots) might deliver a better match by match return for all clubs that we visit.

     

     

    SKY might find that the only Scottish club games they will get to cover will be ours – in the CL Group Stages or those that they bid for on a one off basis.

  5. Yes it has happened.

     

    I stated that they would negotiate,I never stated what the outcome of the negotiations would be.Just that they would happen.

     

     

    If you call me clueless,then I interpret that as ridicule.

    Whoever lost a big bundle of £50 notes wrapped in an elastic band on Argyle street today…….

     

     

    I have some good news for you……I found your elastic band…. ;)

    Kharine was certainly no worse than the Jonny Gould ie Rab Douglas. Possibly damning with faint praise . Between Pat Bonner’s decline post Italia90 and the arrival of the Holy Goalie I thought just about our best netminder was Broto.

     

     

    And yes this game is rank

    you are making things up now!!!

     

     

    firstly…clueless is not a word I use

     

    secondly….you claim you said they would negotiate with whom exactly….you need to be a wee bit more specific in what you said and what I am supossed to have responded with

    Good point, Javier Sanchez Broto was a decent keeper as well. Loved Celtic..

     

     

    Game is poor, why are Spain playing with Midfielders up front

    And yes this game is rank – agree on all 4 points!

     

    ……… and I will throw in – Portugal to beat Spain in the semis!

  13. This match is best described as ‘cagey’. France showing little imagination and Spain practicing technical skills.

  14. garygillespieshamstring on

    Ronnie Simpson in goal for team gb in 1948, did he get bronze, so our gold medallist would be a keeper?

     

     

    Joe kennoway from Canada?

    Paddy g…,

     

    Just been reading back your crap earlier, just remind us all what dd and pl have done?

     

     

    Apart from vilify the green brigade and call the Celtic support no better than Huns, remind me how they improved Celtics lot?

     

    The judicial panel is the result of Celtic supporters threats of boycott, zero input from the board, the disciplinary review procedure also a result of that boycott threat again zero input from the board.

     

    If you disagree with any of these you’ll obviously have proof that dd and pl are responsible.

     

    You obviously know your place.

     

    When the Hun turned up at Celtic park and broke the law with impunity, what did the board do ?

  16. Stephen Black

     

     

    God knows what V Del B is playing at but I haven’t really enjoyed watching Espana since Euro 2008. Great players and all that but unexciting IMO

  17. Practice or practise? Maybe I should ask a donkey…..to hee or not to haw: that is the really difficult question for the sfa.

    Would prob say worst game so far and i think Portugal could beat this Spain team playing like that

  19. Diffo pen.

     

     

    As much as I want Portugal to beat Spain, I can’t see it. Looking like a Spain Germany final which should be good.
