    Fair play to you for taking the time to respond in this manner...I doubt unfortunatly it will make much difference to some!
    Although some have valid questions that they feel have been dismissed the reality is many of the posters who constantly take threads off topic to have digs at you have gone beyond whatever their original point may have been, if they even had one....from the tv appearances I have seen you make you have done a very good job in difficult circumstances....the unfortunate reality it seems is no matter who you are or what you do some of our fans will take umbridge and try to take shots at anyone who puts their head above the parapet!
    As Simon said earlier it is a sad reflection on some of the posters on here and in the wider community that so much time is devoted to arguing about individuals (no offence intended) instead of discussing the real issues or seeking to find a common ground to affect positive change.

    As others have already pointed out, the BBC pay expenses if you are on a panel show either on TV or radio. From memory I've done that 3 times over the past 2 years. All prior to the BBC ban by the club. Since then I have turned them down several times (5+) because the club banned them. They don't pay expenses for news interviews or anything else to my knowledge.
    STV don't pay anything for panel shows or interviews which, being the place I have appeared most frequently, is disappointing! I'd imagine overall that I'm actually out of pocket given the number of times I've had to drive into town to do interviews or appear on shows. Still I won't complain because I think it was important to try to challenge some of the misconceptions in the media. Hopefully anyone who actually listened to the stuff on the BBC or STV would agree that it was worthwhile.
    I'm aware of a few people suggesting I've been paid by the Daily Record. That's simply a lie. I've also noted people saying I've leaked to the Daily Record. That's also a lie. I'm aware where the rumours started and exactly who has perpetuated them and why. At some point that will be coming back to bite them hard but there is no rush.
    There are considerably more important things happening at the club at the moment and this thread being top of this board on a day like today is an indication of just how determined a small group of posters are to constantly attack those who don't agree with their point of view. It's not just me but obviously they have a particular dislike of my refusal to tow their line. That was clearly- demonstrated by WVB's rant about me refusing to bring up child abuse live on STV on a show about Rangers.
    I'm not going to comment everytime one of these posters makes up another baseless rumour. It's not worth it because they have demonstrated previously that they will just move onto something else. This is the last time I'll be commenting on any of this pish. I have no wish to take topics on this board off track constantly and that appears to happen every time I defend myself against the latest slur.

    Because he can, it's not compulsory to reply to every snide remark however tempting it is.

    I think there is an element of jealousy with some even if they won't admit it.....others seem to think he should answer all their questions and befriend them on social media like he owes them something! I think some have fair criticisms of him but some take it too far and distrupt thread after thread attacking the guy!

    I think the commentators have been very fair to us in the first half.

    Thanks to Ace for posting about the book - very kind of RM to allow it to be publicised.
    Because of all the work involved in editing this book and running two sites (along with a very active Gersnet twitter account) I've been unable to post on RM at all of late. To that end, I must say it's a real shame that some would want to infer that myself and the other excellent bloggers that have contributed to the book would do so to try and make money. In fact all author proceeds are going to the Rangers Charity Foundation so hopefully that will put some minds at rest.
    As for allegations that the TRS site is anti-Green or not pro-Rangers well, that's equally disappointing. The site was started almost a year ago to try and stimulate debate into the club and all subjects and authors are welcome - even credible non-bears. The site is far from perfect and we don't claim to be the fountain of all knowledge but we certainly don't have any stance with regard to anyone or would we do anything to jeopardise the club we all love. Fortunately, it has been very successful and the decision to publish book was a natural progression of that.
    With that in mind, we really hope the book will also do well - not just to raise money for the RCF - but to fill the obvious gap in analysing the last two years from the viewpoint of the fans. Of course, as is the case with the site, this is merely to open up the debate as opposed to suggesting any one person (or any one contribution) is right or wrong.

    These guys (& gal) choose to give of their time & write a book on our 'Annus Horrblis' from a fans viewpoint, then decide to donate any profits made to the Rangers Charity but still people complain.
    Personally, the Rangers Charity would be enough for me to buy it without the rest.

    He is taking the piss. The stupid smile when he said "we can't play two up front because we only have one striker" or words to that effect.

    What a terrible line-up.
    Back to no width on the right.
    Faure in midfield.
    Sandaza as a lone striker.
    McKay on the bench.

    McCoist as a manager has been a huge let down. Great ambassador for the club through the years and will always love guy... all them ore reason why it's so painful to see him jumping about the touchline dressed like a gypo in a trackie while his team is nothing short of clueless, tactically & creatively, no leadership, motivation, nothing.

    Disrespectful?
    It's the truth though very few of them are full time players in this league so tell me how it's wrong? The Scottish League is one of the worst in Europe and we are in the bottom tier of it ffs! we are Rangers a huge club who gets over 45 thousand people turning up every other week we should be hammering teams like this I have played 5 asides with some of these bloody players. Rangers should be aiming for the top and expecting to beat teams like this. Do you think Juventus were happy content with scraping by when they got put in the lower Italian leagues or did they act like a big club and have big expectations?

    How on Earth can we give this another 'Push'?
    I am so dissapointed that under 37,000 Bears are the only ones that care enough to do this.
    It Is Essential that we keep on trying!
    C'mon if you havnt done it Yet and tell everyone to do it!...For F*cks sake if you have a mobile phone it can be done!
