    • Kleine Anekdote aus dem BBC-Thread von Gersnet:

      Yesterday's coverage of our match against Dundee was more of what has become the PQ pattern.
      Transparency was the key word.
      DrStu' believes transparency will be achieved if the Review/Disciplinary Committee is made up of former players, as well as former Refs. He specifically stated the name of a fellow PQ employee who, "also wants an emancipated Scotland" to be involved. He went on to say that Michael Stewart would only willing to do it, if anonymity was guaranteed. He would rather avoid the social media storm that would accompany such decisions. Tick one for preferred prejudice.

      Big Dick hosted a twenty minute discussion on the same subject matter. Aberdeen are unhappy, Steve Clarke is perturbed, Neil Lennon has an interest, and everyone talked about kicking out and flicking a kick. Everyone was Wullie Miller, Billy Dodds and his EBT, Chick Young, Scott McDonald, and Alan Preston. Both Morelos and McGregor are guilty as sin and anyone else carded is provided with mitigation, including Neil Lennon aeroplaning. In the interests of 'transparency', we should know the make up of these three men panels. There was agreement that there is one rule for one club and another for everyone else. Tick two and three for preferred prejudice.

      It's interesting, we were told consistently that there was no need to know the identities of those disciplining our club, it wouldn't help the process. When McCoist questioned anonymity in the interests of transparency, it was Beeb Scotland that led the charge in ridicule. Oh, and if you are a license fee paying Bear, do not have the temerity to ask BBC Scotland which employee will be this week's FARE representative in Villareal? Further, Scott McDonald has some neck. Last season, he was correctly red carded for a flat of the boot lunging assault at a Rangers player and he appeared on Sportsound twice and on Sportscene once during the immediate week following his dismissal, to plead his case. That's right Scott, one rule for one ....... who else has such generous access?

      Objective appreciation occurs when all factors germane to the subject are thoroughly tested. Advantages and disadvantages are listed on each component. You arrive at a conclusion that can be advanced. A preferred conclusion that forces the equation to fit is corrupted absolutely. If you omit a constant factor, then your conclusion is false. The culmination of this twenty minute discussion saw Alan Preston in the final twenty seconds say, "Just because Rangers turned up with a Lawyer to bamboozle the committee doesn't make it right, kicking out at a fellow pro' compared with Neil Lennon aeroplaning on to the pitch, what's more dangerous"? Ninety-nine per cent of a discussion refusing to mention the crucial factor of a club participating in the process, fully armed; is omitted. Now, if one of Alan the Agent's players was the subject of an appeal and he was supported by a Solicitor/QC, would Alan the Agent utilise the word, "bamboozle"?

      To coverage of our game, Chico was 'monitoring' events. He began his team news from Ibrox by this introduction, "today's bottom half of the
      table fixture between Rangers and Dundee ......". Big Dick before the end of the show read out the SPFL table, "Hearts leading with a perfect fifteen points, Celtic and Livingston on ten points, and Hibs, St Johnston, and Rangers on eight points". Apparently, we are sixth; well, at least our next league fixture is top half of the table against the Saints one place above. Ah, that old adage about being accurate ensures objectivity?

    • Aberdeen hat fürs Pokalhalbfinale bislang 9.000 Karten verkauft, nachdem sie zunächst darüber geklagt hatten, zu wenig Karten bekommen zu haben. Mittlerweile wurde ihr Kontingent von 25k auf 15k gesenkt und die Karten an uns weitergegeben.

      Das hinderte beim Erstellen der Meldung die BBC Scotland Sportspacken jedoch nicht daran, dieses Bild (mittlerweile geändert) mit reinzupacken, welches Aberdeen-Fans mit einer Fahne zeigt, auf dem der derzeitige Aberdeen-Kapitän Shinnie (eh ein kranker Treter auf dem Rasen) den augenscheinlich abgetrennten Kopf von Ryan Jack hochhält: Red or Dead

    • Wieder mal ein ganz ehrlich ehrlicher Fehler ...

      Yesterday we posted a picture of Aberdeen fans to illustrate a story about the sale of tickets for the League Cup semi-final. The image used contained a flag with an offensive image on it that related to a Rangers FC player. (1/2)

      When this mistake was spotted, the picture used to illustrate the story was changed on both accounts. We regret the error and apologise to the player and to Rangers FC for this mistake. (2/2)

    • Mal vom anderen Ende der Richter-Skala ... schon "lustig", wie sich BBC Scotland anstrengt, einen gewissen Namen nicht zu nennen:

      Gersnet Thread zur BBC Scotland schrieb:

      Reference : BBC Scotland's website, tonight.

      A man has gone on trial for the historical sexual abuse of four boys.
      Jim Torbett, who is 71, denies nine charges of sexual abuse committed between August'85 and August' 94.
      The boys were aged between four and thirteen when abuse by Mr Torbett is alleged to have started.
      The offences are alleged to have happened at locations including his home, Barrowfield football ground in the east end of Glasgow, and a factory in the south side of city.
      Other locations where offences are alleged to have occurred include a dormitory in France and training facilities in Glasgow's west end.
      Defence QC Tony Graham lodged a special defence of alibi in relation to one of the charges.
      No evidence has yet been heard.
      The trial before Lord Judge Beckett continues.

      Mittlerweile wurde Chris "Scrote" McLaughlin nach England "befördert" ... was aber BBc Scotland Sport nicht davon abhält, auch weiterhin einseitig die Rangers zu boykottieren.

    • Übrigens, man könnte natürlich auch einen Thread zum Thema: Media pro Cetlic aufmachen.

      Ein Gersnet'er postete unlängst dies hier zum Thema "wie schlechte Infos übertüncht werden":

      Last week, ra Sellik revealed their wage bill to be several hundred thousand pounds short of £60 million.

      Going across both broadcast and print media today, the number of feelgood articles involving ra Sellik and articles of moral concern running interference of the Torbett verdict, is quite remarkable.

      BBC Scotland's newly appointed Sports News Correspondent, Chris McLaughlin has presented a piece on gambling sponsorship in Scottish football.

      Stacey Mullen headlines in the Evening Times on the proposed Mass at St Mary's in the Calton, to mark the 131st anniversary of the founding of ra Sellik.

      Chris Doyle contacts Kieran Maguire to put a wonderful spin on ra Sellik's financial strength.

      Ewing Grahame wheels out David Low in the Scottish Sun. The man who advised Fergus McCann warns Rangers, 'careful now'! Apparently, our obsession with preventing Sellik's ten-in-a-row, will see us going burst, AGAIN!

      *"gambling sponsoship" ... natürlich abgezielt auf uns, da Green (m.W. damals den Deal mit 32bet einfädelte. Das man jahrelang für Alkohol Werbung machte ist natürlich egal. Wie gesagt, "deflect and denial"

    • Standardverhalten bei der BBC gestern ... machen sie seit Monaten so:

      For the record.......

      European Sportsound podcast (2 Scottish clubs playing)................duration 53 minutes

      One match received approximately 40 minutes of content, the other got approximately 5 minutes.

      I'll leave you to guess which match got what.

      The other 8 minutes covered other things, including our statement about Collum.

    • Scrote ist weg, aber es gibt noch genug Spacken, die für Meinungsmache und institutionelle Vereingenommenheit gut sind. Man liest sich die ersten Absätze durch und fragt sich, ob das direkt von nem Celtic-Board stammt. Mich dünkt, einen ähnlichen Beitrag zu den Jahresendzahlen der Yahoos hat er noch nicht geschrieben ...

      Ibrox: Dave King and his Going Concern

      By Douglas Fraser Business/economy editor, Scotland
      Share this with Email Share this with Facebook Share this with Twitter

      • A big financial loss at Rangers International Football Club reflects big errors in spending, meaning a new regime for picking players
      • The club does well at selling tickets, but it lags Celtic in other earnings
      • Banks don't bankroll RIFC, so its directors and investors are doing so. For how long?

      There are lots of numbers in the accounts of Rangers International Football Club, as you would expect.
      The playing squad, in the year to last June, was up from 59 to 66, with total staff at Ibrox up from 179 to 202.
      Average attendance at home league matches was up to 49,200.
      The numeral that ought to relieve fans of the nearly-eponymous football club more than most is that it is now 65 months since Craig Whyte last threatened legal action.

      How do the numbers stack up?
      The former Ibrox chairman's gas seems to be at a peep, and the humiliating memories of the Craig Whyte fiasco are fading in the rear view mirror.
      When I say the football club is nearly eponymous, it's worth explaining to those outside the Old Firm orbit that this matters a lot, to some people.
      To refer to the corporate entity as Rangers Football Club is to, as the club's critics see it, to concede the claims of fans at Ibrox that the current crop of boys in blue are from the same lineage as the corporate entity of that name dating back to 1872.
      So the word "International" matters here. The corporate entity, created in 2012 to buy the Ibrox assets out of liquidation, is Rangers International Football Club. Whether the playing entity carries forward the older tradition, and its record of winning silverware, is not for me to judge. Or to care.
      That international monicker is an uncomfortable fit, because being International is what RIFC has most lacked in recent years. Having made it back into the premiership of Scottish football, Rangers had its first foray into European competition last year, with high hopes ( the only variety the faithful will contemplate ), and it bombed before the real season had even started.
      That helps explain why the numbers that really mattered at the club's Annual General Meeting in Ibrox were coloured not in black or blue, but in red.
      The club reported a £14.7m loss last year, which wasn't far from half of its £32.7m revenue. That income figure was up 12%, which is nice, but at the same time, expenses were soaring.
      Why? Another number: two managers took charge at Ibrox last season. They had a dismal time. They were spending on players with expectations of being far bigger than the club they are.
      You can see this as investment for the future. But it was a particularly poor investment, by the admission of the chairman Dave King.
      "Something went wrong," he concluded.
      The investment didn't lead to a commensurate rise in performance. And not only did the players not perform on the field: that shortfall made them less valuable in the transfer market.
      The accountants are able to measure just how bad it was. They account for the value of player registrations. As soon as you sign a player, the value "amortises" - that is, it declines until that contract is complete.
      In addition, there is impairment, which is the underperformance of assets, lowering their value beyond the effect of amortisation. Last year alone, directors had to accept an impairment on their playing assets of £3.3m.
      Along with amortisation, that contributed £7.6m to the 2017-18 loss, up from £1.8m the previous year.
      Meanwhile, the total wage bill was up from £15.8m to £21.5m.

      Selling players on
      Out of interest, how does that compare with another club with a similar sort of stadium size, fan base and aspiration? Let's take, for instance, Celtic Football Club.
      The Parkhead accounts for last year show amortisation of £8.8m. It's a bigger number if you have a more valuable squad.
      But Celtic's business model is to increase the value of its players and sell them on. Last year, it made a profit of more than £16m on the selling of players - or what accountants like to call "intangible assets".
      Such numbers can go up and down a lot, as big sales make for lumpy flows of moola.
      The other big numbers that matter at Celtic Park include merchandising, which last year hit £17.7m. For Rangers, that element of income is a sorry tale of dispute with Mike Ashley and Sports Direct.

      At Celtic, "multimedia and other commercial activities" include TV rights and sponsorship. That topped £40m last season - almost as much as the £43.6m from "football and stadium activities", which includes ticket sales.
      In total, the wage bill at Celtic was £59m to Rangers' £21m, its revenue was £101m to Rangers' £32m, and its profit was £17.3m to Rangers' £14.7m loss.
      For Rangers, there is always hope and expectation, and it seems this season to be pinned on psychology.
      According to the chairman, Dave King, there wasn't much method to the recruitment of a strengthened playing team. He attributes a happier run in Europe this season to the review carried out by director of football Mark Allan.
      "Very importantly, we have now incorporated key personal character traits that have to be present for anyone wishing to play for Rangers, or to be part of the management of this club. We have seen that technical excellence alone is insufficient to perform at a club like Rangers."
      In other words, modern sports psychology and management has finally made it to Ibrox, and is now being marshalled by manager Steven Gerrard.

      Digging deep
      RIFC now has Metro Bank on board, having lived without much banking support for several grim years. But that's not where it can look to bankroll losses. For that, it has directors, ploughing in loans and occasionally swapping them for equity.
      By the end of its financial year, in June, total external loans had mounted up to £23.4m. That's not a particularly healthy figure, as Rangers fans ought to know by now.
      It's lower now, because of a debt-for-equity swap worth £11m, carried out earlier this autumn. However, more money will be required - £4.6m more this season, with the first tranche required in January, and a further £3m more in the 2019-20 season. The more of that transferring into equity, the more dilution there will be of other shareholder stakes.
      The club might continue a Europa league run meets the fans' high expectations - we'll find out more about that on Thursday evening against Villarreal - and the added broadcasting rights with gate receipts could offset those numbers.
      But the accounts spell out very clearly that RIFC can only be considered a going concern because directors and other investors are willing to dig deep, and have promised to keep doing so.
      One big question is how long Rangers can afford to live beyond its means. Or to put it more positively: how long and how much will this investment strategy require before it delivers profitable results?
      It was a question put to Dave King at the AGM, to which the answer came: "As long as it takes".
