    So basically what  you mean is that the dude was right all along but you can't/won't admit that so resort to name calling?

    Let yourself down with this shite tbh.
  8. 35 Yard Dangerman liked a post in a topic by The Moonlighter in 82 Years Ago Today.Founder Moses McNeil.   
    On the 9th April 1938 our Founder Moses McNeil passed at Townend Hospital Dumbarton. Moses had been visiting a friend in Dumbarton and became unwell. He was the grand age of 82.
    Moses was born on the 29th October 1855 at Belmore House which today is part of the Faslane Naval Base. His father John was from Comrie in Perthshire and mother Jane Bain from Downpatrick in Ulster.
    He was a natural athlete  Powerful and of stocky build, it was said that was also known for his pace. 
    In the Ibrox trophy room is a cup won by Moses for a half-mile race at the Garelochead Athletic Sports on 1 January, 1876 and it’s the oldest Trophy that the Club has.  
    Moses played for the club he helped form for ten years, playing in the 1877 and 1879 Scottish Cup Finals.He was also a member of the first Rangers side to lift a trophy, the Glasgow Merchants Charity Cup in 1879.  
    He was the first Ranger to play for his country when Scotland defeated Wales 4-0 at Hamilton Crescent in Partick in 1876.
    Moses led a nomadic lifestyle mainly due to his 20 year employment with the company Langs whose name was synonymous with the famous brand of whisky.Their premises,which Moses worked from,was at 70 Union Street in Glasgow.During his time in Glasgow Moses lived at 169 Berkeley Street and 333 Dumbarton Road.
    These locations are among many others that we cover during the Founders Trail.  
    We have a wonderful newspaper report which details Moses and his friend, team-mate and fellow Founder Tom Vallance attending the 1905 Scotish Cup Final as supporters.
    Only 9 months after Moses passed Rangers would set their record attendance at Ibrox Park of 118,000  .
    It’s a comforting thought that our Founder was sitting in his cottage while the Club that he’d help form and nurture were now one of the biggest in the World.
    Moses spent the last few years of his life  living with his sister Isabella in Clynder at Craig Cottage.She died in 1935, to be followed by her brother, the last of the siblings, in 1938.
    They lie together with their sister Elizabeth and Isabella’s husband, Duncan Gray, in the lovely churchyard at Rosneath.But sadly for the man who gave Rangers their name his own isn’t inscribed on the family headstone.
    The late great Sandy Jardine was a supporter of the Founders project and had expressed a wish to have  a plaque with Moses name on it placed at the churchyard at Rosneath, this is a project that we completed on Sandy’s behalf on Sunday 28th June 2015.
     Our Restoration team cleaned Moses stone and placed an engraved plaque which was purchased after funds were raised via the Rangers support.
    Today we remember Moses McNeil.

    I think the issue here is that journalism and the notion of it has changed over the years.
    I have a fairly romanticized notion of what journalism should be compared to the reality. I believe that a real journalist should be above reproach. They should choose that line of work because they want to make a real difference, not just as a 'job'. They are in a unique position to go out and investigate in a way that normal how public and at times even the police can not. 
    When I think of journalism i think of Woodward and Bernstein, guys who didn't want to just write gossip columns and local interest stories. To me, those types have gone and all we have are touts and gossip mongers, with every newspaper getting more and more sensationalist. It's lazy and I believe the number of journalists without formal training has increased and that is wrong. I believe in giving people opportunities but there are too many bloggers who have a position of influence in the national press for my liking. There used to be a kind of moral code with these guys and a mutual respect there but when you have the likes of the hag and ill Phil getting space, what hope is there for balance and impartiality when our own minded journalists are apathetic. 
    I do hope we reach saturation point with the blogger types and properly trained journalists can be brought back out to the fore, ones coached with integrity and a bit of moral fibre.

    Anyone with a brain will see they didn’t win the league. 👍

    “In principle we accept fixture flexibility. However, the league must not be
    compromised by changing the rules during the course of the competition and these
    decisions should not be made on an ad hoc basis.
    "Therefore, we oppose the decision and feel, in fact, that it has compromised
    the integrity of the competition."
    This is Peter Lawwell in 2008.
    ”the league must not be compromised by changing the rules during the course of the competition and these decisions should not be made on an ad hoc basis”
    Isnt it amazing how that Japanese Fenian cunt always has something to say that benefits his club and hinders ours and the League bends over and takes it up the arse from him.
    Scottish Football is as corrupt as any league in history.

    Anyone who thinks this is fair should take a long hard look in the mirror . 
    In 2008 they said the season could not be extended now in 2020 yet again are making the rules up to suit those cunts

    It should be declared null and void it's the only solution due to all this going on but if they  cant see sense to do that then the season should be played out when this shit is over. Listen  they have bottled it several times before at this stage of the season. 2 games against them with a game in hand. Nothings won or lost yet.
    NO SURRENDER

    As a result of this shite mate I have zero income and zero right to any assistance. I would absolutely love to be on full pay and hold it back for 13 weeks.
