    Not true.

    Houston refused to disband SoS, even though they no longer continued to serve the purpose for which they created.

    How was one of Kings rent-a-mob ever going to be against him in any way shape or form whilst sitting on C1872.

    You couldn't make it up.

    Even in the event of that being the case, it was still known before the elections, if Club 1872 members were happy with that situation and him representing them, then fair enough (and I didn't vote for him either).

    i just think this situation is a whole different kettle of fish.

  2. All the debates before around conflicts of interest, etc, centred on James Blair, at least in his case it was all up front at the time when the members were voting, so although I didn't vote for him, it didn't concern me that he was on the board. I would separate this out as a different issue, this is just one person who is either oblivious to what could be a conflict, or just too egotistical to care or take advice on it.

    Either way, totally untenable and I am sure many of us will stop funding Club 1872 unless this is dealt with VERY quickly.

    I want to know who the fuck is leaking shit at our club. We need to get to the bottom of this. To much of our business gets leaked to these bastards.

    warburton is a prick and thinks he was bigger than rangers. Lol he couldn't be more wrong. I respected him one time but the way he has acted is a joke.

    still don't fully trust the board but dnt hink il ever trust anyone again.


    The heavy implication is that the management team were leaking the fact that they were under scrutiny.

    Oh yes, this clears up everything, fucking NOT!

    Look past the "three", we are in the brown stuff. We are going nowhere!

    With the managerial situation what else did you want or expect to be in the statement?

  5. Genuinely hoped when he came in that his hot headedness was a thing of the past. Regardless of the story here, he is the one who has been sent home, so, clearly is viewed to be in the wrong. Really disappointing, sadly not surprising.

    When I read the statement I got a sickening feeling in my stomach of the Green days, a lot of the statement it correct but some is cringeworthy

    Which parts were cringeworthy?

  7. Bloody hell, we have finally jumped the shark. Fans are the most important thing..... Perhaps the most self-important, I'll give you that.

    i bought a signed picture of John Greig last year, the one with him and the Cup Winners Cup, guess that makes me more important than him.

  8. Does anyone care to name these posters they claim are Ashley lovers or support Sports Direct? Id like to know because I don't know who they are.

    The funny thing was folk thought Ashley wanted to come to Rangers to spread the name Sports Direct, and thats exactly what groups like RST and SOS have done. The name sports direct is never out the papers and the news now.

    Do you get the irony of your first question here compared to the first sentence of your previous post?

  9. :lol:

    Woah. That's some attempt at distorting the truth. The 5p in a £1 is a total crock of shit measurement. It's a liberty. And it's taking our fans for fools. (tu)

    It is a reasonable enough concept of a measurement, most of us are genuinely only interested in how much money Rangers get out of the deal.

    Future earnings, retained profit and all that are fine, but really immaterial to the club in that we have had actual cash issued over the last few years.

    It is only misleading if people think we get 5p and SD get 95p of the profit. As long as that is made clear, it really isn't that bad a measure.

    It may feel unfair because it is not taking costs into account, and obviously if Rangers sold these ourselves, we would receive all of the money and then pay out costs, and could end up at a similar benefit, but given the circumstances, knowing how much of my money would end up with my club (or has ended up with my club) when I buy official club goods seems reasonable.

    And to keep sort of on the topic, the reason I was asking was because of the debate around RST saying £10 (or £11) would go to the club from each £20 shirt, so there is a comparison.

    And of course it is interesting that in both cases the money getting to Rangers is delayed, for different reasons.
