You insane, insulting and illogical low intellect rabble

364

I admit to some admiration for the Daily Record which today came out with an outstanding article on the integrity and honest which inspires their values.  A truly inspirational piece, although somewhat undermined by an angry, if entertaining, rant against social networking sites and football forums, which are apparently characterised by “insane, insulting and illogical.. messages”, with a “lack of intellect”.

It’s good to see they don’t take themselves too seriously.

We also got the most rewarding argument to justify the accusation that Celtic “reneged” on an agreement to pay Rangers ticket money in advance of this month’s game at Ibrox.  The Record state that Celtic agreed to pay in advance as long as Rangers were not in administration (Celtic may tell a different story), which Rangers now are.  However, as Rangers issued an invoice for the tickets before going into administration, the Record argue that Celtic have, in fact, reneged as their payment didn’t reach Rangers before the administration date, 40 days in advance of the game.

They decline to claim evidence that paying more than 40 days before the game was part of the agreement, but with a startling command of intellect and logic, overlook this fact when claiming “the agreement must still have been broken”.

Don’t even try to figure this one out, it is logic way above your intellect.  It remains to be seen if it has outfoxed Celtic.

The newspaper cites conversations between Rangers staff to back up their story.  No wonder that lot ended up in such a state.  Don’t think this is a concerted effort to undermine your football team, you might feel that way, but, again, it’s a problem with your intellect. A TwitLonger link to the article can be found here.

    Why does any Celtic fan buy, read or respond to the DR or anything written in it?

     

     

    We should regard it the way Liverpool fans regard the Sun.

     

     

    If we respond we give the DR and the attention seeking hypocrites who write in it, the very oxygen and attention that they crave.

     

     

    They want sales to improve and your angry response fuels those sales.

     

     

    Please resist the temptation.

  2. It’s important to remember that these days of coming in from work and seeing yet more bad news for Rangers running along the Sky Sports News banner cannot last for ever.

     

     

    I wonder if the SPL are one of those who could be perceived as ‘having a fly kick’?????

     

     

    But then only Sally would know the answer to that…

    I do not have any faith in the SPL or the SFA to carry out investigations that will call their integrity and administration into question.

    No doubt, but not up to SPL to investigate prior to July 98 as they didn’t exist until then. If they find against Rangers, SFA/SFL will have to investigate.

    Oh I love the fact these bodies are all digging.

     

     

    If they find proof of Rangers misdeeds, how the Hell can they argue that the club should be allowed to re-enter the league?

     

     

    People, it’s going to happen … you can feel it in the air. We’re going to have our day. The End of Rangers … it’s so near you can almost touch it.

    I think it could reasonably go back further than that.

     

     

    I mentioned the Gazza interview where,incoherently,he denied he was skint as he “still had a couple of million offshore”

    Gascoigne’s former agent Mel Stein set up a trust for him before he went anywhere near the huns. I think the purpose of the trust was to save Gascoigne from himself more than anything. I suspect that’s what he was referring to.

    Not at all.

     

    If every hun game is change to a 3-0 defeat then how could monstermunch have scored his 2 penalties.

     

    Every hun goal has to be stripped like all their results.

    Extract from a post I made a year ago:

     

     

    Timescale would relate to Advocaat purchases – 3 players fit the bill: Kanchelskis + van Bronckhurst, Numan.

     

     

    K looks the most obvious – he has been involved in some bizarre transfer deals with some nefarious agents with alleged links to the Russian Mafia (can’t find the link but recall stories about threats to him about non-payment of their cut of the transfer fees).

     

     

    Man Utd purchased him for £650K (1991/92). Prior to selling him, Fergie was given a £40K cash bribe by K’s agent (see AF autobiography) that he returned and informed his Board about. Subsequently, alleged threats were then made to Martin Edwards relating to the bribe and the transfer. Within a year, Man Utd sold him to Everton (1995/96) for £5M.

     

     

    Within a season – they sold him to Fiorentina (1996/97) for £8M.

     

     

    Fiorentina sold him to RFC (for an undisclosed sum) – he was there from 1998 to 2002.

     

    • Interestingly Fiorentina went burst (and were relegated season 2001/02) with debts of $50M – their owner Vittorio Cecchi Gori (a film producer) owned the TV Channel La7 at the time when footballers were setting up image-right packages!

  26. The Scottish Premier League have launched an investigation into allegations that Rangers made undisclosed payments to players.

     

     

    The probe, instigated at a board meeting on Monday, comes in the wake of claims from former Rangers director Hugh Adam that some payments were not included in official contracts that were registered with the SPL.

     

     

    A statement from the league read: “The SPL board has instructed an investigation into the alleged non-disclosure to the SPL of payments made by or on behalf of Rangers FC to players since 1 July 1998.”

  27. LythamBhoy (all my taxes are paid up to date) on

    If you have 2 contracts do they have to make you redundant twice? Is this why it is taking so long?

     

    And, is it possible for you to be made redundant by Company A when you have your contract with Company B?

  28. Mr X loves having a "fly kick" on

    Official statement from SPL web-site:

     

     

    The SPL Board has instructed an investigation into the alleged non-disclosure to the SPL of payments made by or on behalf of Rangers FC to players since 1 July 1998.

     

     

    Notes

     

    SPL rules F1, G1.1 and G1.5 give the SPL Board wide powers of investigation into potential breaches of the SPL rules.

     

     

    SPL rules D9.3 and D1.13 impose a prohibition on players receiving payments for playing football or participating in an activity connected with football except where such payments are made in accordance with a form of contract approved by the SPL and require that all such contracts are submitted to the SPL within 14 days of being entered into.

  29. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    With the Administrators still prepared to battle on the key date is now the 16th of march for the hun hordes as on that date it will be known if any serious bidder is in for the club ( I seriously doubt it it see my post this morning ).If there is no buyer on the horizon liquidation will be the only option now while its dragging on a bit remember how the huns are suffering as each false dawn is another wound in there beloved club.So fellow Celtic fans dont be impatient for it to rush to a conclusion enjoy the death by a thousand cuts that there cheating club are suffering.H.H.

    Not wanting to be left behind I am also opening my own investigation into Rangers (i.a.) and the possibility of illegal payments and second contracts in relation to players.

     

    I shall report here immediately the investigation has been concluded.

     

    I reserve the right to either throw the book at them or, more likely, slap them on the wrist whilst pretending this is indeed a most serious punishment before changing the rules so that other cheating chancers get both barrells from now on.
