  1. Sacking him might be a route they go down. But imo its not enough. To end the culture of racism in football, imo, need a thorough cancelling job done and for that to happen. In my view that would mean either clubs themselves or national football authorities or Uefa to urgently change their mindsets and state that immediate lifetime bans will be applied and not just bans against playing but bans against any association whatsoever with coaching, managing or other roles in football. Do that and it will most likely stop altogether or radically reduce. Either that or cancel the
  2. Does a 10 match ban act as a powerful enough deterrent to bring racism to a halt in football? I doubt it. I wonder if the majority of responsible decent folks in Europe would think that it is a powerful enough deterrent. Being banned from the game - now that would be a lot more powerful as a deterrent. Sometimes you do need a sledgehammer to crack nuts. Racism is arguably a case in point. If it were known that the punishment was complete removal from the game then I think the players, coaches, Boards etc would respond far more seriously to cancel the culture of racism. As i
  3. Its 2021. The age of cancel culture. The age of get your accusations in hard and fast and often and persist with them. Drown out the opposition. Belittle the opposition. Brow beat the opposition. Protest your innocence and along with it your wounds. Demand justice. Demand that those you accuse are cancelled by the authorities. Attack on multiple fronts. Its 2021. One side in this case knows how to play the cancel culture 'we are the injured party and we demand justice'. The other party works in a different era and convinces itself it is class and that rightful justice will pre
  4. Gaslighting. SNP politicians and their lapdog allies gaslighting. Its the same playbook as they use to try to drive fear and intimidation into people about Covid-19. Of which the so-called 'case' numbers continue to fall - 591 as at yesterday. They are inherently using a reducing pandemic threat to have yet another go at Rangers. Its gaslighting and they think its useful for them as a ploy for the upcoming elections. There is still a game at Ibrox to come later in the season too, so expect more gaslighting when that fixture falls to be played. And then again if we get t
  5. Hmmmm, In the current hostile atmosphere whipped up by the SNP politicians with their lapdog agencies (SFA, SPFL, Police, stray dog warden society, etc) might the Rangers Board be tempted to go into this staged show trial to contest it vigorously. And then - because it will have been pre-judged - refuse to accept the verdict on the basis that it is plainly vindictive with a set of rules being interpreted one way (ultra adversely) for Rangers and another way for a certain other football club that occupies some space in Glasgow. In other words pick a fight on this one in order to
  6. It seems from an STV News Tweet: "Records of meetings between Nicola Sturgeon, permanent secretary Leslie Evans and the Scottish Government’s legal counsel about the investigation into Alex Salmond cannot be found, John Swinney has confirmed." How very convenient eh? Wonder if that is really the truth. But then again, since when did the truth matter and in this age do lies even matter any more. As SNP politicians will be well aware in a Covid-hype/fear age and with emergency powers to do more or less what you autocratically please as a Govt as there is no effective
  7. Thank you. Was not too well for a long while but recovered a bit now. A recovery well helped by watching Rangers progress from the remote distance of news on the internet when I could get some help. I'm so pleased to be in a good spell at present and was able to follow the very recent title winning run of games. We'll see how things go but for now many thanks for your welcome. I appreciate it. Hope you enjoy the rest of what has been a glorious season.
  8. I think the Board has no alternative but to tackle head on. A cancel culture needs to be met by cancelling the cancel culture. But lies are not the heart of the matter. They should be but they are not. These days politicians can get away with blatant and persistent lying - so much so that its actually 'in the grill' lying which is not trying to be hid. Its about who controls the narrative, the message. If they have that control, and they have the mainstream media working with them, and big tech like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook Twitter then truth and a balanced alternative
  9. The SNP has the mainstream media on its side. It has a daily TV slot to spout its propaganda. They have the apparatus of Govt and Govt websites as tools to influence their messaging. They have personalities who are in the public eye daily to pitch the messaging. They have Covid emergency powers to draw on, and further powers they can create as there is no effective opposition in Holyrood or even in the mainstream media. Rangers does not have access to national TV or radio and (it seems) not much access to mainstream newspapers either. There are no well known personalities who are r
  10. There is a key lesson in these times when a cancel (and even 'disappear') culture exists. Cancel culture is being used by certain political parties in conjunction with mainstream media and the big tech outfits like Google, Amazon, Twitter and Facebook who have taken on an unelected role of censors in deciding what people get to see and hear - and buy - on their platforms. This is under cover of asserting whether or not content complies with the T&Cs of the services they provide. The lesson is to cancel back. Which is what Douglas Park seems to be seeking to do Ie yo
  11. No conspiracies. But no co-incidences either. Innocent reason for delay or sinister reason? The longer an unexplained silence goes on the less it looks from the outside as something innocent. Is big US (now really CCP lapdog tech) using its influence (or being asked to use its influence) as part of a 'cancel Rangers' project? As plenty of folks and businesses in the USA and even wider afield are finding out if the tech oligarchs in Twitter, Facebook,Google and Amazon don't like you or don't like your messages or what you stand for then you are cancelled, disappeared, Its what happ
  12. Rangers under Steven Gerrard has pulverised the league opposition. The earliest the league has been won on well over 100 years? Won earlier this season that it was last season with the artificial Covid cut off. The opposition have been left in Rangers' wake by some distance. In Aberdeen's case its very nearly 40 points adrift and we've not even got to the break yet. No wonder McInnes went. Effectively atomised by the performance of SG and Rangers. Not managerially fit to even polish SG's boots. I suppose he'll find a TV/media pundit slot as another Rangers critic as having p
  13. Thanks. I appreciate that. Enjoy the 55 and hopefully more to come this season.
  14. Unlimited and unbounded and unchallenged lies. The point being if the SNP Govt uses its political powers under covid and its position of having no effective opposition to hold it to proper account and with a compliant mainstream media then they control the narrative and the messaging. When you have that sort of unchecked govt controlling power and the active co-operation of the mainstream media you can get away with a lot. Its happening in plain view too. Not being hidden.
  15. Correct. They have seen how cancel culture is playing out in the now socialist /communist USA.....the woke coca cola stuff, cancelling childrens books, the Disney responses, main stream media not reporting that Washington DC is now 50+ days into military occupation behind razor wire fences (ie Fort Pelosi). The cancelling (disappearing) of folks social media by Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon (the tech oligarchs). They've seen that, seen how its playing out and working, and under an autocratic govt in Scotland with no effective opposition the question will be how much can they get away
