Yesterday, is being hailed as the revenge of the SFA.
Some thought the cup draw was the revenge. Though The Human Walnut, George Peat, looked as if a cat was licking his gonads as the draw was made I’m not having that it was planned. If the SFA wanted to give R*ngers an advantage they would have a got a home tie against Auchenshoogle Welfare and not a tie that they are capable of losing. Easily.
The six game ban to our leader has been labelled unprecedented by the club. Their statement raises questions about the integrity of the process and for once reflects the supporters opinions and views.
The SFA have made a rod for their own backs. At no time have they announced a new tougher punishment system so they can only give out punishments that reflect previous decisions.
The press clippings below (click on the first image to reveal the others then click next to read them all) show that Walter Myth received a 4 match ban for “adopting a threatening and aggressive attitude“. This punishment was the automatic 2 increased due to his previous behaviour. Greyfriars Jobby got an automatic two match ban increased to 4 for ‘excessive misconduct‘ for an incident no worse than Lennons and he also questioned the MIB’s integrity after the game.
Derek Adam’s 8 match ban is for some proof that such a severe punishment has been dealt out before. The Adam’s incident, from the descriptions, is a lot worse than Lennon’s and also his punishment was increased due to previous behaviour.

This is Lennon’s first offence. It based on the game at Tynecastle and not a accumulation of incidents that some are trying to say. Some are worried that the appeal will see the ban increased. See the below the clipping concerning Craig Levein and his run in with the SFA.
I fully expect the appeal to be heard and the ban to become an automatic two plus another two. Why? It’s all in the evidence and I’m not any Ally McBeal.
