The ‘FARCE’ has took a particular evil twist this evening.
The publishing of a document that all SFL clubs received today shows it to be low on content and detail but high on threats and blackmail. It is a really shameful document. One that would make those reading 50 Shades Of Grey blush even brighter than being caught imagining that Mr Grey is Alan Titchmarsh.
The sickness that I felt when I first read these Gerrymandering plans has subsided a bit as the reality is this….there is not a thirst for any New Club to be fired straight into the 1st Division from the rank and file. Only those in charge of the game seem to think that it’s a good idea along with Charles Green and some bitter bares who are blind to see that while Scotland doesn’t want their club the authorities want their cash.
It seems that this plan has been dreamed up by Doncaster, Regan & Longmuir and the clubs are getting first sight of the nuts and bolts of the deal in a document that seems to have been flung together at a toilet break in the meeting.
I hope this is a face saving exercise calculatingly leaked knowing that it’s doomed to fail.
This is the dying men attempting to salvage face in a hope that they appeal to the self serving personality of your average SFL chairman. Problem is that there is not enough there to pacify or draw those whose clubs will feel the massive hit if 300 season ticket holders walk away to accept the proposals.
I trust that 7 or more SFL members will vote against these plans, which give nothing more to the 2nd and 3rd Division clubs. I trust that they will listen to the groundswell of opinion from the punters and not fold to the black mail and the attempted Chinese burns from the authorities.
In the bigger scheme of things are Elgin really going to attract anymore fans if they vote the New Club into Div 1? Are Falkirk? Are Clyde? Are Hamilton? Are Alloa? Are Stirling Albion? Are Stenhousemuir? Are Annan? Are any other club that lives to hand to mouth and really wants a bigger slice of the pie and reconstruction FOR THE RIGHT REASONS not a proposal that will see their attendances drop if they vote yes?
The sense I had and loved that the SPL chairmen were doing the right thing for once has been demolished by them looking to drink from the furry cup of greed via the backdoor. They have went to the AA meeting then during the fag break had a fly pint in the pub across the road. They’re repugnant twatpigs. Spineless spunkbuckets. They don’t care about you.
See all those extra season books that have been shifted over the last 7 days on the basis that the clubs have done the right thing those people will feel like their respective chairman has entered the family home and crapped on the living room floor, ate the contents of the fridge then had sex with the wife.
This ‘deal’ has a Machiavellian vileness not seen outside Ibrox. Remember that Sci-Fi program V? Well, that’s the SPL chairmen tonight. They are the visiting aliens who are all sweetness and light while planning to eat your children and revel themselves as big lizards.
What about our club? The silence has deafening and up until now rightly so. Now that the plan has been revealed – a plan that if it was music it would be the sound of the new Muse single to celebrate (sic) the Olympics a big overblown mess that sounds like Armageddon mating with a nuclear bomb while Freddie Mercury caterwauls over the top of it like some demented hobbit – we have to distance ourselves from it.
We have to say that a New Club must apply to the SFL the same as any other club.
Time to show our hand.
