copied and pasted from FF thought it should be shared here under the heading ''the perfect storm and the sound of silence''
The story has it all: football, morality, criminality, integrity, double standards, financial chicanery, secrets, lies and at its centre what can only be described as pure evil.
Of course there is nothing at all perfect about the subject matter; it is horrific. But for some, as a news story, it could be described as the perfect storm. A dictionary would define a perfect storm as "an especially bad situation caused by a combination of unfavourable circumstances". It's an understatement in this case.
So why the silence from those who have the audience and the means to address them? Those reporters, commentators, moral crusaders and mouthpieces who are never shy to give us their views on everything and anything related to justice and fairness, especially when it concerns Scotland and even more so when it concerns Scottish football.
We know who they are. They know who they are.
The silence speaks volumes. You cannot pick and choose between morals, fairness and justice. By definition, these things have to apply to all and not just to one section of a community. If you pick and choose then you are compromised and either prejudiced or bigoted. And the silence on your news channels, websites, blogs and twitter accounts are proof of your ongoing and blatant bias as they are full of condemnation and opinion whenever any other Scottish football club (one in particular of course) so much as farts.
It is not difficult in this part of the world to believe that someone could be so biased enough, perhaps even bigoted enough, to try to stifle a news story when it involves the club they have feelings for. Integrity-wise, it is about as low as you can go for anyone claiming to be any sort of social commentator. But it is entirely believable of certain types.
And there's the rub.
If this is not about your beloved celtic FC, why have you not commented as you would normally do with any other club?
Your silence speaks volumes.
