The cabal's lickspittle at it again

Says at the end that Hertz and Thistle were undoubtedly hard done to - after spending several paragraphs pissing all over their case.
And this is supposed to pass for journalism?

“Quote” There’s also every chance Celtic’s chief executive Peter Lawwell will be re-appointed to the set-up at that stage, replacing Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson ”;

Robertson needs to stay on the board more than ever , we need his ears and eyes because you never know what this lot might get up too

So apparently Lawwell has kept his own counsel........apart from his “rousing” speech to persuade clubs not to have a free independent investigation into the goings on of the SPFL board.

"If that happens then Lawwell, who has kept his own counsel throughout this period of
 unprecedented unrest, will be dragged into the thick of the fight."

Keech seems to have conveniently forgotten about the "rousing speech" given by Lawwell, backing his placemen on the SPFL Board and shooting down our request for an Independent Enquiry.

Surely the role of a journalist is to bring the truth to light? Why is it so terrible if Scottish football’s ‘dirty laundry’ is aired for public inspection In a court of law? Isn’t this exactly what a newspaper should be campaigning for? When it comes to skeletons in the closet Scottish football is second only to the Khmer Rouge.

Rebels? For not lying down and taking what Liewell has deemed must happen. This is what it’s like when he’s not on the board. So if the vote agrees to give ultimate power to Doncaster, can you imagine the consequences?
If that vote goes through (which i cant see it) then the game is an absolute bogey - Rangers would be better off in division 3 down in England than staying here

And his club manager and captain on day 1 saying "give us the title" while people died.

The bullying tactics continue. It's a disgrace that no rag in this country is willing to stick their head above the parapet and report the facts and tell everyone that hearts and Patrick have a right to take it as far as they need to to overturn this ridiculous decision. Hopefully getting rid of the bheasts placemen at the same time

Jackson - "There was unanimous sympathy for those two clubs". I wonder if Jackson has ever heard anyone saying, "sympathy don't pay the rent".

Scotland never led anybody the way, but the rest of us up the garden path.

If I remember correctly, they made their move after belgium had made their decision, in fact they pounced on it.

"On the agenda is a proposed rule change which would empower SPFL chief executive Doncaster and his board with emergency powers to act as they see fit..."
Saves them some time rigging votes, I suppose. An absolute omnishambles.
They want a rule change to give them more power to act as they see fit, just in time for a welcoming present for the Glesga Jap coming back onboard.

“Even the most myopic and
 self-interested of chairmen and chief executives could see
 the blatant unfairness of what was done to these two clubs back in March when football was stopped.“

I’d love to challenge him on that last sentence. I’d ask why exactly is it unfair for both teams to be relegated yet there’s no issue with the title being ‘awarded’.

Either it’s fair to change the format of the league (to smaller number of games with asymmetric opposition) partway through or its not. If it’s unfair to relegate (which it is) then it’s equally unfair to ‘award’ title.

Is Neil Doncaster guilty of conflict of interest by offering SPFL legal adviser to clubs wishing to back the league against Hearts and Partick Thistle this week?

KJ: Not as far as I can make out. The gun-to-the-head strategy being adopted by Hearts and Thistle seems increasingly bizarre and has infuriated clubs all over the country.

GR: The timing and content of his letter to member clubs is so dubious and distasteful. Why was it sent? Do the SPFL need other clubs to bankroll their legal defence? Are they running scared? Looking for safety in numbers? They might be on the ropes on this one.

CS: It's hard to know what to think with all these things at the moment. We can’t wait for court battles and statements to be replaced by games and goals.

FW: I’m no legal expert but it doesn’t look good and has certainly fanned the flames of an increasingly bitter dispute.
So Jackson is the only one who doesn’t see a conflict.

scotshit journalism must be the easiest job in the world. Eat a tin of alphabetti spaghetti,spew it over a sheet of paper and send it to the daily record. Tell them it's an exclusive football scoop and it's a cert to get printed. Works for quite a lot of them.

“Lawwell will not feel much empathy for Hearts or Partick Thistle.”

An astonishing remark.

In Lawwell’s zeal to manipulate “useful idiots” and ensure title was awarded to Sellik two clubs are consigned to financial oblivion. (I detest Hearts and Partick Thistle but treatment of them has been disgraceful).

Is there any point competing as everything is awarded to them?

This lazy chancer has been fooling plenty people for years. A big fish in a very small pond, he attracts sycophancy, which seems to blind people to his many weaknesses.
I still agree with Hearts observation, ‘All the other clubs have looked after their own interests, which they are entitled to do. So are we and we’re going to’
The puppet Jackson wades in with his customary ill considered prejudices where he seems to admit Hearts have a case but shouldn’t pursue it.
Then comes the standard move along, nothing to see here. We shouldn’t be correcting past wrongs, move along, let them do it all again.
Time to ‘make progress’ (laughable), ‘move forward’ (even more laughable), until the next time.
What an irresponsible, weak and cowardly shill, he really is.
 
"On the agenda is a proposed rule change which would empower SPFL chief executive Doncaster and his board with emergency powers to act as they see fit should, heaven forbid, another pandemic force our game back into lockdown at some point in the future."

Why would a rule change be required? Surely they have been doing as they see fit all along.

" That means the top 12 can now arrange pre-season friendlies between themselves" Why would you want to play friendlies with your rivals before the season starts,fkn ludicrous.

Let’s not forget this weasel tactic. If this goes through, and with Lowell on the Board next season, the consequent abuse of power really will be the end for Scottish football. Let’s hope for once the member clubs kick their arses for them.

This bit really gets me. Sympathy? You fcking did this to them. As we're seeing around the rest of the world, we could have easily separated the money from the football and would be playing to a conclusion right now. These cnts have PUT Partick in this position, and now they're agahst that they're being questioned?

They all felt dead sorry for Partick (not enough to vote for reconstruction or slightly damage their own pockets mind) and expected them to go quietly away with a wee pat on the back and there there. But answer them back and they snatch away their two faced condolences?

Honestly, this country is deeply, deeply sick.
Only half of it I would argue.

If they get their way we’re all about to be dragged back to the very start of this crisis and the decision to call time on a season after it had been infected by the same virus which has unleashed such suffering and chaos.

From Dundee and their
 mysterious flip-flopping to Neil Doncaster and his dubious back channelling, it could all be dragged back into the public domain like a recurring nightmare.
That is whole point Jackson, and the only people it will be a nightmare for is Doncaster And his cronies like yourself.
