I keep looking through several posts and time and time again the forum member called the Dude keeps on appearing on multiple posts and by the looks of it pisses several people off in the process. Now, I come on to this platform to get news and opinions on all things Rangers and to read the different opinions from Bears. Can I ask you a question Dude, you state that you are a professional journalist and it appears to me that you like to correct people on their ill thought out comments. Why would a sports journalist spend so much time on a Rangers fan forum, especially in such a divided city?
I just don’t get this, surely you must have more appropriate direct contacts and sources for gathering your info from within the corridors of the Scottish football world? Would that not be a better use of your time instead of getting caught up in sometimes controversial forum posts on subjects that are quite sensitive for many fans regarding our club. A journalist should not be wasting time on forums and I would expect them to be professional and stay away from these platforms. Leave the forum for real Rangers fans to discuss all issues affecting our club and for us to have banter with each other without worrying about smart arse people who seem to be trolling fans.
I grew up knowing several sports journalist personally and all I can say is, they should never sign up to clubs forums as they are not representing themselves properly, they should also have no favourite club as once you sign up as a journalist you have to be impartial. How can you be trusted to be fair and balanced if you start prancing about club forums with opinions. Leave the opinions to normal Bears and let the club provide us with any info. Sadly football journalism in Scotland has been dreadful for several years now and I personally think people claiming to be journalist on club forums does their already tarnished reputation no good whatsoever.
I have nothing against you as a person as I don’t know you. I have been on this forum for several years but do not post often, I prefer to enjoy reading other Bears comments and some of the banter is brilliant. It does upset me though when people talk fellow Bears down and treat them like idiots. Our loyal fan base has been through a lot for many years and we now have testing times ahead,not only as Rangers fans but as human beings dealing with an unknown health crisis.
Let Rangers fans get on with debating current issues affecting our club on forums like RM. Others really should be having their discussions elsewhere.
