Aberdeen fans release Rangers related statement

Recommended Posts

March 12, 2012 AFCRoss News,Trust Updates / News

Fans will be well aware of the current financial problems suffered by Rangers FC in the last few weeks. DST consider it pertinent to offer their views on this matter.

DST’s stance on the matter is uncompromising. The sporting integrity of Scottish Football is critical. We want our club to take the moral high ground by insisting that all member clubs play by the rules, comply with the law of the land as well as the game, and fulfil their obligations to other clubs and to society as a whole. DST fully believes in these principles and is sure that all right minded supporters will feel likewise. We wish to send a clear message to the board and management of AFC that we will not condone any departure from these principles, and that they should not be party to any future arrangement which allows a club to renege on its legal and moral obligations.

Rangers led most of the top Scottish clubs into ruinous debt by their unsustainable overspending from the Souness years onwards, and the creation and structure of the SPL has institutionalised the unfair distribution of wealth within our game. Now is the time to challenge the OF’s stranglehold to ensure a more equitable league structure and format.

The OF need the rest of Scottish football much more than we need them. Without a league of opponents to compete with, they cannot survive. The media argument that the OF subsidise the other teams and keep them afloat is spurious. The reverse is in fact true, since they get a totally disproportionate share of the money in the game. This unfair subsidy must cease immediately.

This is watershed for Scottish football. DST believes that the supporters of AFC and supporters of every SPL club should now send a strong and clear message to their club’s directors that we expect and demand change to the structure of the game as a whole. It is in every club’s interest (including the OF) to level the financial playing field, and to have 2/3rd majority voting in the SPL.

Clubs must also find ways of improving the product on the park by increasing variety, competition and entertainment, thus providing better value for money.

DST will continue to monitor events and will be collecting comments from members soon.

That's not pertinent. It's just impertinent in fact.

Christ, now we've got the sheepshaggers lecturing us on morality after years of horseshit from football's greatest perverts in the world.

What a crazy world.

That statement has got to be a joke

If we join the English league system, with ten years AFC will have joined us, or went semi-professional. The big money is down south, if we're bold enough to go got it.

:lol::BELM:

Wonderful stuff. Love that these diddy teams are now thinking they are the the daddies. Ha well done, it only took Rangers to nearly go into administration for the rest of them to even have the balls to arrange a fucking meeting to discuss the idea of possibly challenging the structure of the Scottish game.

Ha and we need Scottish football more than we need them eh? Hilarious. I would imagine the club themself, like evry other club in the SPL, will realise that they are royally fucked in the ass without us

Tell you what DST....when your club becomes 50% of the reason for the TV deal in the first place....THEN you can dictate the TV revenue.

Until such times as your wee didy team actually contributes to Scottish football as you like to assume, you take your place in the worlds eyes as "the rest".
