    Something like this was predicted on the Heart and Hard patreon site.

    That's why they just released the kits on a Friday night with next to no promotion.

    Hopefully it's just a bug and not another long run of court battles. I'm sick to the back teeth of this fat slug.

    They were never for sale on the online megastore. It was the gerstore online where you could buy them.

    Still for sale on the gerstoreonline.com & TBH JD had a very limited amount of stock anyway so no real difference.

    I guess fatman just did not like one of his few competitors stocking our new gear when his jumble sale is stuck with a load of last season stock.

    Have they actually been removed or is it possible they have just sold out, as I don't imagine they had a great amount of stock in the first place?

    The other way to look at it is that it is encouraging they are still on our website.

    I think plan b if needed would be to sell everything on that site

    Really? We're in a street fight with the most litigious fat f88k in retail. We successfully blindsided him with a move to shift as many shirts as possible outwith his grasp. Anecdotal evidence suggests we have sold 10s of thousands of units off the back of a very temporary platform.

    I'd wait till this plays out before you start calling anyone shambolic.

    It’s a deliberate act of sabotage from SD, who are attempting to stop us from having a retail department.

    They don’t want a deal that works for both parties, and don’t want us working with an another retailer.

    I know who I’m backing in this fight.

    And it’s not the fat greedy c.un.t from SD.

    I'm thinking this; kits are still for sale through the Gers store & JD online does have some of our merch (although no sign of this seasons)

    That explains it, I went in before the Ayr game thinking that'd be back in Gers hands with new tops. It was full of cheap tat, some of the stuff was horrid.

    I think the club can sell them as long is it’s not through a retailer. We seem to be selling them on our own. This may be the way round it. Just using a distributor. It makes sense. We may never see these kits on sale in the high street again or at least until this is resolved.

    Rangers never advertised nor endorsed purchasing from JD Sports. We don't even know how JD Sports got the limited stocks of kit that they had.

    thegersstoreonline is the only outlet promoted by Rangers for buying the kit. It is still selling the kit, ergo there can be no injunction in place (as yet).

    There may be numerous reasons for the lack of kit advertised by JD Sports. Maybe their source/supplier simply cannot source any more stock for them. Maybe (unlikely I know) Rangers or Hummel have moved to stop them selling.

    Lets not automatically jump to any conclusions about an injunction though - when it clearly isn't the case given the ongoing sales via Rangers.

    If you want to buy, use the official source. Non-personalised kit, it would seem, is now being turned around in 24-48 hours now they've cleared most of the backlog.

    When will this corruption cretin ever be brought to account. Clearly put a spanner in the works,surely he's in breach,if he's not prepared to offer the same conditions as JD then I'd say Rangers have a case against him for another malpractice. How he can get away with so many is beyond me,he must have Newcastle tied to all sorts of shadey deals,regardless whether he sells up or not.

    Best way to find out is for anyone who pre-ordered training gear from JD to phone/email their CSD and ask what the script is.

    I preordered some training gear on Monday. Got a text message about an hour later saying it had been picked and was working its way through the warehouse. Not had anything since. Will chase up now...

    Didn't bother following up so far as I believed the release date was next Monday.

    It appears JD have already taken the money from my account for the training stuff I ordered. I didn't think they would be able to do that until it was despatched...

    Without finger pointing and being in full possession of the in's and out's of the ongoing dispute THAT particular point IS a shambles.
