    Professional referees instead of VAR?

    Having watched "full time" referees in other leagues, I don't believe it will make one iota of a difference.

    Petition to sack Clare Whyte

    I'm not against petitions per-se. Maybe a petition to scrap the process could be more pointed? All I think this does is shoot the messenger. The next in post will face exactly the same dilemma..."which Rangers incident that's been sent to me do I refer to the panel?" Maybe I just get frustrated with the scatter-gun approach aimed at every "target" that's wronged us knowing fine well that things like this just get ignored. In this case, I don't even think it's her fault; certainly not when she'll be bombarded by umpteen media outlets pointing fingers at Rangers incidents only, with the odd smattering of others and a token tim one now and again. I don't understand the whole process but if that's the gist of how it works (and she's not allowed to go looking for incidents herself) then it's hardly surprising that, with our media's leanings, we get the brunt of it. I've tried my bit with the BBC before and it's so fucking frustrating and demoralising you end up letting it drift. What it really needs is major fans groups (I know they try) and the club putting weight behind things. It's that arena where the scum leave us trailing behind....they've managed to get the press and the authorities so much onside I struggle to see where we can make an in-road.

    Petition to sack Clare Whyte

    Abolish the system as not fit for purpose. It's set-up and mechanics of how it works is open to subjectivity, and those with an agenda against anyone in particular can make a case to put forward. The more you're on live telly, the more likely you are to face citation. On that basis that obviously leaves us and the tims as the most likely to be involved in the process. Now, with the source of most citations being a less than favourable media cabal, it's obvious who's going to be targeted the most... The system is an abomination. Anything that allows trial by media, with all their bias, can never work. I guarantee that if the CO had Rangers leanings, and the press couldn't influence it (and tims were getting what we're getting out of it), the press would be applying so much pressure, as would the tims, that the whole system would be aborted.

    Compliance procedure unfit for purpose

    This last week has exposed the rules for post-game disciplinary process as thus; 1. If you badly foul a Rangers player and the ref doesn't send you off, then you're fine, we'll look after you. 2. If a Rangers player badly fouls you and the ref doesn't deal with it (whether he sees it or not), rest assured we'll cite and suspend. 3. If you badly foul a celtic player you can expect to be sent off and suspended. If the referee doesn't deal with you as we expect, you'll be cited and suspended. 4. If a celtic player badly fouls a player from any other team and the referee takes no action then neither will the compliance officer. If the referee does take action, then the compliance officer reserve the right to reverse the decision. 5. Citation will be called based on evidence discussed on Sportscene by Michael Stewart, on Sky by Andy Walker, on Radio by Michael Stewart, Tom Currie, Tom English and Stuart Cosgrove or in the press by Chris Sutton or John Hartson. Other experts such as Tom Boyd or Frank McAvennie may be consulted and ex first class referees such as Conroy or Clarke may also give opinions. 6. Games involving other teams don't really matter prove me wrong
