The kind of Armageddon that buys you a meal, takes you to a show & onto a nightclub

738

As far as Armageddons go, this one will surely be known as the Amiable Nursemaid of all Armageddons.  The kind that not so much wipes everyone out, but buys them a meal, then takes them to a show and onto a nightclub.

Sky has renewed their deal to cover the Scottish Premier League after Our Man sorted them out yesterday.  They will show a handful of Scottish Football League games as part of the deal, a nice quid-pro-quo for SPL clubs for their annual contribution to the lower leagues.

Delicious irony: those SFL rights are worth more to each SPL club than they are to any SFL club.

Chief harbinger of doom, Neil Doncaster, will, on the one hand, be relieved that there is still income to pay his wages.  On the other hand, he must surely be embarrassed at the spectacularly in accurate scenario he portrayed to SFL clubs, and to several people in the media.  Did he embark on a flamboyant bluff or did he simply not know what he was talking about?

Remember, why we are here in the first place… Our good causes this year are The Haven Centre in Blantyre, Oscar Knox Neuroblastoma Appeal, Martin Chambers Ecuador Trust and Aberdour Primary School Parents’ Association.

We have already distributed over £2000 thanks to the sale of a Joseph Gormley painting back in April. We have two further fantastic paintings by Joseph; one of Scott Brown and one of Henrik Larsson. We also have a wonderful signed Neil Lennon print by the artist Gary Brandham.

The items are being raffled on ebay right now for the price of a £1 ticket. Winners will be drawn at the CQN Open on Friday night. There will be further raffles and auctions on Friday night with some excellent golfing and other sporting activities been donated by the Celtic family. Perhaps the pick is a limited edition canvas print of John Thomson, donated by the John Thomson Memorial Committee. There are only 22 of these in the entire world, representing the 22 years of John’s life.

This is a unique opportunity to win three great pieces of Celtic memorabilia, items which would normally be pushed out of the reach of most people at auction. Tickets cost £1, buy as many as you like, but participate. This is what your club is all about!

    My fear is that in a year or two, the liquidated club will be back as arrogant, bitter and with the same sense of entitlement as before.

     

    God forbid, we might even see joint sponsorship falling back into place.

     

    Soon things will be spun so much it might seem little more than a dream has taken place.

     

    It’s hard to believe how things have panned out.

  2. Sad to see RTC call it a day – i think it offered a place where sensible debate and analysis was possible amongst a wider (non exclusive tim) audience, which for the first time in my life, forced both msm, football authorities and wider society, to listen to something which could no longer be ignored – the unbiased voice of the people. Fantastic effort RTC – thank you.

     

     

    Paul67 keep up the great work mate – your efforts are equally appreciated – you are credit to yourself and all things CFC.

    I always aim to disappoint you. So that´s another slap on the back for me and again thanks for being daft enough to let me know. I salute you though in that you never fail to disappoint me. Never ! I think we should go back to ignoring one another as it is right boring for everyone else. Where have you been these last 5 months pre tell ? has your stomach been churning ? Lost your head ? Seen a ghost ? looking for a cure for the cancer ? etc. etc. etc.

     

     

    You will be glad to know that I have been having the time of my FU**ING life

    Yes, your old man was right – Rangers Players were in the BEF (British Expeditionary Force) or as our Father more correctly called it Back Every Friday

  10. Orange Order’s threat to take up arms; Catholic and SNP outrage as Lodge Grand Secretary warns of terrorism if Scotland achieves independence

     

    The Sunday Herald

     

    July 8, 2001 | Neil Mackay | Copyright

     

     

    THE Orange Order in Scotland is threatening to transform itself into a Protestant paramilitary organisation if the SNP ever win a mandate for Scottish independence.

     

     

    Could something similar be going on if the HUN and it’s history is wiped out?

  11. Sorry if this has been posted.

     

     

    This is to all fans of the Deed club Rangers (1872-2012)

  13. Wonkyradar,

     

     

    Thanks for the reply. I agree completely. I’ve always marvelled at the strange contrast between sports economics (not just football, but the other big team sports too) and the rest of the worlds economics. The irony deepens for us, because we are truly a socialist club which would benefit from a thorough application of capitalist principles in football. No single club could benefit more, I’m inclined to say, in fact.

     

    If Celtic meant nothing to me I wonder if I might be a champion of such equality. Except where football differs from it’s major rivals, all North American major leagues, it is that our markets are sub-divided yet integral and we keep it that way. North America is two countries so they can do both far more effectively.

     

    Without question, and I do mean that, if we asked the NFL, NBA or NHL commissions to come in and re-vamp European football along the same lines as North American sport Celtic would get an automatic invite to the big league.

     

    My newly acquired bleak perspective reflects the fact that I can’t foresee any way in which we might get so lucky. Not helped, of course, by the astonishingly negative and insular opinions that we hear from all corners of Scottish football this past year. Notwithstanding the social crimes visited upon us by Rangers, the destruction of the spirit of Scottish football is the greatest crime they’ve committed. There doesn’t appear to be any person or entity in Scotland, out-with Celtic, who has any aspiration, ambition or vision.

    They are dead.

     

     

    Bastard son of dead might still be alive but in intensive care.

     

     

    Deads criminal buddies might not be in jail — yet.

     

     

    I think it is clear that we must get out and allow the bastard son to take our place eventually upon leaving. By of course via reconstruction

     

     

    Hail HAil

  15. Just think how blootered the meeja jeerleaders for the defhunct klub are now………

     

     

    Shameful.

  16. Dawell says it will always be Rankers as long as they play in blue at Ipox and he can look down and see Sally and McDowell there in the dugoot, anything else is just being PEDANTIC!!!

     

     

    Really sorry about that Dawell I feel really stupid now.

    Well said.

     

     

    I have always made the point that behind the unreal insularity of financial bubbles in football or any other industry there is the hard contours of economic reality ready to burst whatever inflated values have emerged within any given market. The first lesson in life for everybody everywhere at all ages and stages of life is: you cannot cheat reality. That axioms applies to individuals and organizations equally. Reality is the ultimate measure of all things. If we forget that then tragedy ensues…and I think many football clubs, just as it happened to many great financial institutions, are deep into a process whereby they have forgotten reality…

  21. Can I get some advice please.

     

     

    I’ve just bought some raffle tickets for the Henrik picture above. I have a paypal account which is fine as the money will be taken from my bank account. However, I don’t have an ebay account so the name and address is for the missus’ daughter.

     

     

    How will that work in the unlikely event that I was to win?

    If it is anything like the iPod Touch then if you go to the numbers keyboard there is another grey shift key with #+= on it. Tap that and you are away.

  25. Aw Naw

     

     

    I suppose, where I’ve been depends rather a lot on your belief system. Given that no-one believes me, in the ethereal sense you suggested, I can only ask the same question of myself.

     

    Credit where it’s due this time Aw Naw, you may actually have provoked an existential crisis for me to contend with…. to go along with my obvious shame and disquiet over affairs on the southside.

     

    Also, I know you are an inspiration to many. And that is mildly amusing.
