By now, even the most red, white and orange tinted glasses wearers must be coming around to thinking there’s something off about Newco’s dossier of evidence of bullying and unfair sporting advantage which should have seen Neil Doncaster and Rod McKenzie suspended three weeks ago.
At a Premiership club meeting on Friday, Newco chief exec Stewart Robertson promised to release their evidence today, creating a genuine sense of anticipation among a support who have had little substantial to cheer for many years. Instead, they awoke to news that information would not be released until Thursday.
There are 41 other clubs in the SPFL, they have all discussed the issue between them and none know who was allegedly bullied. Newco have given themselves another two days to convince someone they were subject to a grievous offence.
It reminds me of Ricky Fulton’s sketch from the 1980s (below). You can imagine Stewart Robertson phoning round, “Have you ever been nearly bullied?” Good luck, Stewart, all of CQN is rooting for you.
