    Everyone has a choice and they are free to make it, writing about Rangers professionally creates a potential for a conflict of interest. I have been writing about the youth teams since October 2008 and haven't made a penny from it. For the majority of that time I was in full time employment. I could take the cash offered by advertisers, considered taking it and donating the money to the youth fund, the figures were not substantial so decided against it. I do it because I enjoy it, the club coverage of the youths is minimal (they use my reports on a regular basis) and it provides a service to the minority that have an interest in the youth teams https://rfcyouths.wordpress.com/ The blog is free and everything is written by me alone.

    Tell you what though, if I've learned anything from this thread it's that if I ever get an opportunity of a better job I should definitely run it by the guys on here before accepting to make sure they all approve of the company.

    Maybe I will, maybe I won't but I'd rather have tried and failed than sat on the internet greeting about it and doing fuck all to try change things.

    I'd say that, with the fact that you're still on here despite the countless times you've made an arse of yourself, he's probably not going to be banned any time soon. "The Catholic coin" wow

    So now we have day 6 of the DR wringing the sponge on this one. Today it's Barry Ferguson writing 'don't tar all Rangers fans' and some more shit about the halfwit that came on to the park. I repeat, racism is disgusting, but the DR's selective disgust is also repugnant.

    It's not descended into that, it pretty much started off as that. It didn't seem to bother anyone when the only member being slagged off was The Dude though. Funny that.

    I see Brenda is stunned and bemused that Broonaldo has been snubbed for the player of the year award, he rates him alongside Chelsea's £32mil Kante and can't work out why he's been snubbed by his fellow players Maybe because he's just a dirty cheating cunt Brenda

    So tell me, when everyone is greeting about the papers etc all being 'infiltrated' by them, how do you propose that's changed? Just sit around and wait for them all to go out of business because, and this might come a s a surprise to some, it's not likely to happen any time soon.

    Never mind as a Rangers fan being given an opportunity to get more balance and redress the obvious bias against our Club by the DR. It's a win win for me. Alternatively, he could just moan like about the unfair bias, and taigs in all the positions to continue the unfair bias, while passing up the opportunity to actually do something about it, bar moaning about it. Radical, I know

    I do have a lot on and take some pride in that tbh. You don't get a thing by doing fuck all. With no degree in journalism (or anything else for that matter) Every 'opportunity' I've had through blogging has been earned through putting consistent stuff out there that, imo, is balanced and fair while also putting the hard work in so that when things do come up (like the Record blog) they approach me and offer me it out the blue. No idea where you got that idea. Like everyone I've got bills and rent/mortgage to pay and like everyone I expect paid for work that I do. I've spent the first couple years writing doing it all voluntarily simply to build a name for myself (still do for WATP). Now, luckily, I'm in a position where I can make a living from it.

    One of the reasons I don't nowadays read the DR any more and only read other newspapers irregularly and even then its a mix of newspapers is my judgement is that reporting has shifted more and more towards bias, and more and more towards selective extremes of news reports. Fake stories, false stories, events enhanced or spun to make them more radically newsworthy with photos to match. The days of any feeling of reading balanced, fair reports are, imo, a thing of distant history. News, it seems to me, is whatever the newspaper controllers and their thought-merchants want it to be with an emphasis, or lack of emphasis as the case may be, that suits their agendas and their paymasters. Often, it seems to me, a case of being as economical with the truth and the facts as it is possible to be and still feel as thought it is a sufficient true and faithful representation of events and statements. What's this got to do with the DR and Rangers? Well, my judgement of reporting of Rangers in recent years - certainly the last 5 - is that the DR is wilfully biased against Rangers preferring to report matters in extremes in order to wound the Club, deride the Supporters, ignore its history and contribution to Scottish football, and in general to have a more or less continuous 'go' at the Club. Quite why it appeared over time that Rangers directors chose to leak their news to the DR is a mystery to me. Seemed to me like self inflicting wounds but that's only my opinion, The bottom line is people read the DR and participate in DR blogs because they want to. No-one forces them to. The newspaper and its blogs can be ignored if people want to ignore them. Just as equally the news articles and blog stories can be contested if that's what people want to do. Its their choice as to how to react. The day the DR makes a positive and defining contribution of substance to the benefit of Rangers is the day I'll pick up interest in what the DR says and does. It'd be so seismic a change of approach that I'm sure I'd hear about it, if nothing else it'd be a thread on RM with a lot of startled posters contributing. I'm not expecting that to happen anytime soon or even in my lifetime, I for one have reduced the DR in my mind to the equivalent of a goldfish swimming round and round in a bowl of murky water. The same sort of news stuff goes round and round in circles with predictable regularity. The same type of biased news, and same type of wide-open mouthed biased reporting......swimming round and round again to repeat the formula and repeat the bias mantra. Boring really.

    Thank fuck I don't see the papers up there. Six days must be just about sticking the boot into Rangers again. Sounds like that paper is worse than I remember from 2012. Don't know anything about how the other sites compare to papers when it comes to pay and prospects but maybe the Dude is setting himself up to be a patsy here. If you read this Dude be careful about the terms as these cunts might try and bend what you say or try and dictate what you write about.

    Exactly. No place for racism in society these days. The guy has been caught and has gone to court. That's it. The correct process has been followed and that should be it,but the DR are definitely wringing every drop out of it and you can't help thinking its part of a larger deflection from the real issues that haunt the east side

    Yeah me too. I'd like the old firm matches to remain as bitter as possible. Too much of football has become sterile with commercialism. Would be shit for it to become a popcorn affair like in Liverpool. I laughed my ass off when our boys done the huddle at the piggery and you could see the freaks all racing across the stand to get to the tunnel to give them grief The difference is these cunts stood and goaded a stand which is too direct for an old firm match. I remember it happened more in the heat of the moment at a game I was at and Petrov got smacked with a coke. He later held his hands up to his credit. I think back in the days of the terracing and drinking that would lead to a mass pitch invasion but it still ends up with people being jailed because of the raw emotion involved and could lead to proper disorder. I've no problem with a wee capped ear as they make their way up the park to their own end as anyone who can't handle that is just being an arse. Same with wind ups like our huddle or stuff after the game at their own end like their OTT celebrations. It's rubbing it right in but you know your own chance will come. That little tossers tying a scarf to the goals was also a sore one. Seeing a wee rodent like that claiming ownership of Ibrox was surreal but at least it was after the game at their own end. It's like with our huddle except not as good a wind up. The only thing that could beat it would be doing a Souness with the flag. Would love to meet a Fernebahce supporter and see what they had to say about it

    It's no more that a platform to allow them to spout shite, lies and propaganda. The scum at the rhebel know it and we, well most of us, know it too. Any friend of this rag is an enemy of ours.

    Not that you Good Folk need any more persuading, but here's an email I received today from one of the Transport Staff at Erskine... gb, On behalf of our Veterans at Erskine Bishopton, can I just let you know that our guys have enjoyed many great days out to Ibrox matches yet again this season. Despite many bad performances on the park, it hasn't discouraged them from attending. Sadly this season we lost a few regular attenders: Donald Mathieson ,John Bowman, John Blair and Big Bob Gillfillan. RIP guys. I'm sure you had the pleasure of meeting these gentlemen on many occasions and they always praised the great kindness and genorosity of all at RangersMedia for making their outings (and many other gifts) possible. So with that in mind can I on behalf of all our Veterans, wish you all the continued success in making it all possible with your RM Erskine Fundraising campaign which will hopefully help us take more Veterans to Ibrox in future seasons. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING ON BEHALF OF OUR VETERANS ERSKINE HOME BISHOPTON TRANSPORT DEPARTMENT

    I've seen that boy calling the PUL community a lot of nonsense. Irrespective of beliefs and it's obvious why unionism, loyalism, and Protestantism is important identities for that community given their history and what they've been through, but do you think he'd be so quick to disparage any other social group like LGBT, Jews, gypsies, Mormons, feminists etc? I don't yet he thinks he's a moderate liberal. Guy needs to give himself a shake and see through his own prejudice. I've came across this many times even among well schooled people. There is a negative discourse out there towards the PUL that is easy to swallow. You see it in the media all the time whilst the other side are portrayed in a romantic way as the humble underdog. The movies about the Irish are notable for this with the British army boots rushing up the stairs and kicking doors in and such imagery. I think it's because of the idea of thinking the more powerful group are the real baddies. You see it or hear it a lot with regards to Orange walks were it's described as jingoistic triumphalism. Anybody else celebrates there history with such pageantry and it's described as a wonderfully vibrant celebration of culture. It's almost like the PUL are supposed to give up their history, roots, and sense of identity because it's not squeaky clean. Most countries would actually applaud such loyalty and patriotism and they way they never gave up during all those centuries of struggling for survival in the land of their birth. I get sick of the lack of understanding among many otherwise liberal people. They are usually too self righteously liberal to realise their own intolerance with regards to the PUL community.

    Bills need paid, food needs bought, rent needs paid. If they give me a fair platform to publish my stuff then I've no real complaints. They allowed me a subtle dig at KJ and his 'ignorance of football outwith what's broadcast on Sky and BT' People may view it as sleeping with the enemy but the same folk aren't the ones paying my bills. What I do find funny though is people moan about not getting fair coverage from the papers. They give me a chance to do that (which I feel I've shown over the last 4 years I do consistently) and folk still moan.

    Nice one. Already said it but good luck to you, we need more Rangers men in positions like this. Sitting back and letting the tarriers run the media, councils and governments is not the way to go. Also hope this means the Hibs fan stops getting paid to go to Ibrox.

    You're probably right but I can only try. The shite we've read for long enough is the reason I decided to give this a go in the first place. I've grown up reading the same one-sided shite we all have and decided I could do it better. Maybe I can, maybe I can't but I'll never know unless I have the platform to do so.
