A very fair post Op.
You are talking about News channels and Newspapers sitting on thier hand in silence.
The Sfa are doing nothing!
When is One Scottish Football Club going to stand up and be counted here?
Who ever that is has the right to speak out against ceptic and call it as it is.
Would Rangers do this?
Never would be my guess but when the boot was on the other foot by God the whole of Scottish Football kicked us.
Scottish football is in the gutter because of the corrupt goings on at Hampden.
Its appalling whats going on and not one club has the balls to name and shame the club which has not only brought the game into disrepute but shames everyone of us for letting them get away with these heinous crimes.

Celtic should be held accountable and the victims should see the benefit of it.
Any bear that suggests Celtic should be punished with things like stripping of trophies or points deduction are an embarrassment to us, and are doing the victims case no good.
It makes it look like we are only trying to point score rather than get justice when we bring it up, like certain so called journalists say.

Personally I think there should be a full open transparent inquiry to the whole murky business,We all know the perverts at the bheastly end of these crimes but we have other individuals in the higher echelons of the cesspit with dirty fingers,In this day and age it might be hard to find the right people honest and neutral enough for such an inquiry but I believe it's the only way to get the justice deserved.

You could argue that the whole EBT situation directly influenced what happened on the pitch - because it affected our financial prowess and therefore standard of player and team.
In terms of comparing ‘how bad’ the two things were it’s like looking at wee Jimmy the shoplifter versus Ian Brady.
But in terms of actual football the Celtic situation wouldn’t have affected the quality of their team or ability to win football matches in any way.
The perpetrators of the crimes against these boys are the ones deserving of just punishment. Those who knew and didn’t act should also be investigated and justly dealt with. They as well as the those who carried out the crimes owe the victims grave apologies.

Too many of the perps are probably in the grave now. This should have been investigated by the police 30 odd years ago. There was plenty of knowledge then. On your last point Celtic probably lost players because of this. But always, the victims are the important people here.
