celtic Face 25 actions regarding Historic Abuse


Recommended Posts

The two things that come to mind are these:

1. How can any normal family man, (not the Neanderthal fringe but a non-criminal, functioning, contributing member of society with job, mortgage, car loan etc), who presumably loves his wife and kids, continue to follow (and therefore condone) decades of abuse of children who could easily live next door to him or in the next street? That is the one aspect of this I have never understood. They lavish presents on their kids at Christmas and, deep down, they act like regular, loving, caring parents but, not only do they have no difficulty in turning a blind eye to the atrocities, they actually defend that terrible club and shout down those who speak out for the victims. How do they know that the wee boy who their son has invited over to kick the ball around the garden is not the latest victim?

2. Secondly, what the fuck are the footballing authorities in this country thinking about? In any other sport, in any other country, a club would be suspended pending a FULL investigation. The irony is that the SFA stated that they would wait until the court cases ended. But there are so many, who knows when they will end? The effect of this approach is that the club is effectively shielded because of the huge number of offences, perverts and victims! Utterly insane.

It all points to a shit-scared media, a weak and/or subservient parent body and too many defenders in too many high places protecting their team.

I truly wonder if that club will ever pay, not just for the initial crimes and lives ruined or lost, but also for the cynical, chilling, expertly executed decades of denial and defiance.

If there was a shred of justice, the place would be closed down and bulldozed with a memorial garden in its place.

Excellent post CT :thumbup:

Nothing will ever happen to the club in a footballing sense, it just won’t. 

They will pay money to the victims at some stage and that’ll be that.

Unfortunately I think the same. They should be punished because they have continually dragged this out by claiming the separate entity line but Fck all will be done. Not one thought has been given to the survivors.

It would be difficult for the authorities to punish for what the old regime did

You and @jintybear are both wrong on the old regime thing, you'll see. There are powerful people on the case.

I sincerely hope you’re right and not just because the club in question is celtic. 

I believe the folk have no particular design on any football club dodgy institutions, rather it will be all about justice for the victims. The popular enablers however, may come out with a sore face.

may = will

I never thought it would be impossible just difficult for football to punish them .
 

The courts though ,well that’s different altogether .

 

Iv held a theory for sometime on what the board were upto ,Maybe find out over the next months if I was right .

Agree with both statements.

On the second one - for a cash rich club it's surprising they would rather drag the matter and the victims through court with the adverse publicity than settle out of court.

Unless of course they haven't got the cash.....

Think it’s a case of not wanting to pay out because it’s an admission of guilt in doing so

They could have agreed a settlement without admission of liability subject to the victim not bringing any further actions and also insert a confidentiality clause.

Matter resolved - victim paid, no future proceedings and reduce bad PR.  A sensible and moral approach.

For many though it’s not about money .Many are only seeking an apology.

No amount of money could compensate for what these men have carried through their lives .

True but I doubt they will ever get an apology.

Just watched Gordon Woods video from this morning on BNT 07 which is on you tube.He said it was a devolved issue but now Westminster are in coved because of the cross border issue between a Scottish club and a person from another club in England.Its worth a watch as this is only a small part of it.
