    I know we're both sh*te at talking about serious stuff in person, but I wished we had chatted about this on Sunday whilst knee deep in the bloody Tay (I've got wet feet, I've got wet feet- there's a song in there somewhere....) I read this earlier and some thoughts flying around, so please forgive me if I act a little strange if it jumps around a little. First things first- accept that you will feel sh*te sometimes. It's learning how to deal with it that's the issue. I sometimes feel utterly crap still too and instead of drinking like I used to, I now munch chocolate and sweet things, or try really hard to distract myself. Usually both. My moods go up and down depending on small little things that happen and I can accept that I will feel low sometimes- it's a great start to coping with mental problems. You know most if not all the bollox I've dealt with before- if a wee pr*ck like me can cope then an awesome c*nt like you definitely can. Secondly- as hard as it might be sometimes, really try and go into work each day. I'm aware that it is dull and boring but right now, it's your main source of income and if you lose that, you're even more f*cked. You'll end up back at your parents at square one again with no chance of a job being in Saline etc. So really try and push through it in the mornings and keep reminding yourself it's a long term plan and this is sh*tty stage one. Mind, if you need a hand to move your stuff I can come and help. Thirdly- as harsh as it sounds just forget the whole girlfriend thing at the moment. Anyone worth bothering your a*se over (i.e. not mentalist types!) will be able to detect some of the stuff at the moment. I don't know how, but they do. Fix yourself first and that sh*t will come. For an ugly hoor, you're a good looking c*nt. Don't ever quote me on that! Fourthly (??)- keep up that running you were doing. Aye, inclines are a b*tch. F*cking push through it. Losing weight and feeling better doesn't come without it's own pain in my view, although I know it's tough with your ankle. Do you still have a bike? If not, maybe I can ask Judy to lend you hers that's in our shed at the moment as I don't use it. If running isn't your thing, maybe cycling or swimming is. You definitely need to get baw deep in some good cardio though, so many benefits from it. Kind of need to f*ck off to work now but there's loads more that I could write. I've a load of books you could try borrow. Whatever sounds cheesy in feeling better though- it normally works to some degree. We're all different and we all have ways of coping with depression to whatever degree we have it- it's about trying as many techniques as possible until you know how to deal with it- once you've got that it's amazing how much luck and good things will start to happen. I've also got a bunch of stuff from before I came back to Aberdeen, from some course I did at Lauder about mental health and how to deal with it etc. I've kept them as I have to try remind myself of the good stuff- mental health is something that needs constantly worked out too and it's knowing what work out to use. We're all worried about you. I know for a fact you can talk to Judy whenever you want as she desperately wants to help if she can, even with burd advice! What she knows about pulling burds though, I'm not sure.... But seriously I know all of us are worried (you know who I mean) and if we can help I know we will. That's why we've done hill walking etc recently, it's great to get out and do something different. Won't be able to for the next 4 weeks but will be back to it after that! Text me, call or whatever if you feel you're feeling like that again. Or I'll do to you what you did to that door

    Dat statement It's funny how some sellick fans had a 'sectarian' banner in last seasons Scottish Cup semi final yet there was no pathetic, tear stained statement made after that because they won the tie. It's quite clear that Rangers and their support simply don't like it up them and just can't hack that they're not top dog anymore.

    You've got a plan DA, work towards moving flat, that's a great positive mate. Tell your GP you want to do some exercise to help your physical health & state of mind but because of your financial state you can't afford it & can they help out, have they anything going to get you out & about? See if there is any college courses you could do that you would be interested in, you'll meet people. Are there any self-help groups in your area, meeting up with folk in a similar situation could help you & them? Finally you've always got us, ffs. Grimbo

    I've worked in some horrendously tedious and boring jobs before and the way I managed to cope was just doing the absolute best I could in that role and being really professional. At the end of the day at least you can go home and say you've done your best and made a difference and your colleagues will likely be on your side too as their life will be easier. Fill up spare time with exercise, just try walking if you're not fit. Once you get fitter try five a side or a team sport. I dont know what it was but one day I just said f**k it and started exercising. From having not run for years or done any exercise I just gradually built it up doing various things. The easiest and quickest way for me was getting an exercise bike. It's very easy to join a gym then come up with excuses and not go. If you have a bike in your house you can do half an hour easily while listening to music or reading a book. It's not really a chore. Six months of doing that plus eating decent food and I can guarantee you would feel more positive. pretty sure as others have said there's money available to help people get regular exercise, the pars could do with a set piece coach... Sorry if this comes across as happy flappy bollocks but I've been really down before and still am at times. Exercise definitely helped, no question.

    9 assists in 8 games for Easton, he is going to be missed massively. When you sign players like him you have to deal with the fact at times he is going to be greedy and shoot instead of passing, but when you think of some of the garbage players we have had endure in recent years it was great to see a player that wanted the ball all the time and could beat players and score the goal he scored on the first league game of the season.

    I don't have to provide a version of events. I'm not trying to provide a version of events but pointing out that their version isn't convincing. I've complained to the BBC to get them to clarify what the actual sequence of events was. It's not for me to speculate as to how they arrived at their decisions but for them to provide a reasonable explanation of them. Your analogy is woeful. The BBC are not 'subscribers' to TV content produce by the other broadcasters, they produce content themselves. You and they are providing a narration of events which makes it sound like it is up to Sky or BT to decide what coverage of Scottish football the BBC provides. That is clearly not true. I've already stated I find it a ludicrous argument that the BBC had essentially 'no choice to make' to presumably pay for lower league highlights in the first place. What they now have paid for isn't clear, especially given the BBC Alba angle, and it isn't asking to much to enquire what they can and can't show. Nor is it unreasonable to ask them for clarity over whether or not they made any attempt to secure an extension of the rights package they 'accessed' last season. Ridiculous you think it being 'too much bother' is a reasonable argument here. If length of highlights was irrelevant in this decision why did you bring it up in the first place then? You think I'm asking you for proof of the BBC's internal decision making process? I'm asking them to explain that. But if you're going to make assertions like 'the BBC chose to spend the money on more cameras rather than lower league highlights' don't be surprised if people ask you how you could possibly know that. You evidently don't. The nature of the contract in these key areas hasn't been widely reported and your inferences from it are merely your opinions. I reserve the right to point out how illogical these are. In the course of this thread you've already been pulled up on a range of factual errors such as whether or not Sky or BT could show championship games so excuse me if I find your white-knighting of the BBC a little less than convincing. And for the record I'm not alleging a 'pro-Rangers' conspiracy but a systemic disdain for the lower league game on the behalf of the BBC. As far as the Rangers angle goes though it's self-evident that the only reason they started showing the highlights over the last four years was due to Rangers being in the lower leagues; you, er, said so yourself earlier on. They got promoted and now the highlights have disappeared, but I'm sure the BBC were just 'dragged along'. The Championship features games as well-attended (or better attended) than the Premiership. The BBC as a public service broadcaster and a producer of content should provide a better service to the rest of Scottish football and recently (and this goes for the online service as well, and also the cup competitions) has made cutbacks in their coverage. Their explanation of these decisions has been inadequate and self-serving. It clearly isn't just a case of being dragged along by the other broadcasters as they and you seem to be alleging.

    Well that's the question really isn't it? I think everyone can agree now that this isn't anything to do with the BBC not having the 'resources' to send cameras to cover an additional 5 games. Indeed when they were showing lower league highlights it was generally only of one or two games per week anyway. These matches are being filmed, as has been stated above highlight packages are being made and other broadcasters are choosing to purchase them. The BBC isn't showing them and hence the question has to be is it because they can't or because they won't? A new contract was negotiated this year so either it didn't include these rights or it actually did and the BBC have made an editorial decision not to include them on Sportscene. If the contract didn't include such rights it was because the BBC didn't want them or the SPFL asked for an extortionate (in the BBC's eyes) sum. So which was it? These are valid questions the BBC should answer. Do you work for the BBC or something? Or did having two minutes of highlights of a championship game really ruin Sportscene that much for you? I don't recall there being large numbers of complaints on here that the lower leagues got some coverage so I think your statement that 'everyone would agree the highlights were rubbish as a result' a bit bizarre to be honest. I don't think the poor quality of the highlights of premiership games previously had anything to do with showing one or two lower league games either; it was down to editorial decisions made by the BBC at the time. The 'why is this an issue now?' angle is also bemusing. Well evidently because the BBC expanded their coverage and then subsequently decided to reduce it once again without adequate justification in the eyes of a lot of their audience, hence the complaints. The last bit in italics I find really bizarre. The BBC as the broadcaster involved are the only party who could explain why they've decided not to show these highlights; and they clearly 'deliberately' decided not to, I can't see how Sky or the SPFL are 'forcing' them to not show them. It's also up to the BBC to explain why they showed any at all to begin with and provide a convincing explanation that it wasn't anything to do with Rangers. The idea that because Sky and BT wanted the coverage the BBC had no choice but to copy them is ludicrous. It is the BBC and the BBC alone who can answer the questions I've asked above as to the contract and their approach to the negotiations. At best the SPFL would be able to tell you if they were asked for the rights and perhaps (although I suspect they wouldn't reveal it) how much they asked the BBC to pay if the BBC asked for them at all. Why would my club or the SPFL, or even Doncaster, know why the answers to these questions? Basically this is the BBC's decision and for them to explain. Nobody forced them to this decision and nobody can explain their actions away for them. The highlights are out there: other broadcasters are paying for them on occasion. The BBC don't and waffle about contracts 'reverting' or a 'lack of capacity' isn't a satisfactory response.

    Not really buying the BBC's line on all this. When they got complaints about ditching the Championship highlights, coincidentally when Rangers made it to the premiership, they offered up a range of excuses in their initial response. http://www.bbc.co.uk/complaints/complaint/sportscenescotchampionship Firstly that Sportscene focused historically on the top tier only. Then why expand it to 'certain' lower league games over the past 4 seasons? Secondly that the premiership-only format thus mirrored Match of the Day: see above and also a total irrelevance anyway, there's no need to ape MOTD for any reason. Both of those reasons were irrelevant bunkum, the TV rights deal angle was the only one worth arguing (if they're going to pretend as they have been doing that it had nothing to do with covering any one club in particular), so the only one worth looking at critically. It's true they have argued that it was BT and Sky who asked the SPFL for the rights to lower league games in 2012 and apparently therefore these rights suddenly became available (apparently nobody had bothered to ask for them before). If the BBC as their response states were 'able to access' such highlights packages as a consequence it's reasonable to assume there was a cost involved. I can't see Sky or BT getting them for free or passing them over to the BBC for free, although their response infers that the subscription broadcasters might have been that generous. Who knows, maybe there really was a clause in their deal with the SPFL that meant that if BT or Sky got extended live rights the BBC automatically got the highlights of these games at no extra cost. Maybe. In any case all a bit irrelevant as that deal is apparently history. In their statement the BBC alleged that their rights package has "reverted" to one that just allows them to show highlights of the premier league but not anything below that. Bit weird then that in May they were trumpeting the fact they'd signed a 'new' deal with the SPFL: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36213734 So it really isn't the case that the deal simply went back to what it was before; had they had the appetite to do so presumably in May, knowing that their rights to championship highlights, however they had secured them, were about to elapse they could have included them in the new arrangement. They didn't. Either the SPFL asked for some ridiculous sum or they decided to just stop paying for them. Given the SPFL hadn't been apparently been able to sell these rights before, and in a footballing context were supposedly in a 'weaker' position I'm going for the latter being more likely. In any case it's truly ludicrous BBC Alba have the live rights to these games, or some of them at least, but BBC Scotland can't apparently get the rights to the highlights of these games. Especially when Alba can show highlights of the premiership. Basically their response is self-serving and incomplete. I've been going through the complaints process on this to try and get some more clarity as to what rights they actually have regarding the Alba deal and whether or not any attempt was made to get lower league highlights included in their new deal (and if not why not). So far all they're prepared to do is regurgitate their original statement and they have 'nothing further to add at this stage'. So it'll be escalated to the next stage then...

    So lets get this right: 1. Blow up dolls being hung by Celtic supporters after having had their hands tied behind their backs, mouths taped shut and dressed with Rangers scarves. 2. Sectarian singing from both sides mainly about some tawdry little battle a very long time ago or a famine or the Queen or Ireland or ******s or **** or the IRA blah blah blah. 3. Toilet blocks utterly trashed by Rangers supporters again. 4. Banners with “Kill All ****” and “Know Your Place *** Scum”, from the Celtic supporters and banners in support of the IRA also from the Celtic supporters. Without exception these are the actions that make all normal human beings in Scotland wish the two Glasgow clubs would leave our country, one to England and one to Ireland where they both apparently wish to reside and live out their teenage fantasies. I'm embarrassed by the actions of these animals, calling themselves Scotsmen. And what makes it worse is that the authorities literally do nothing about it. NOTHING!

    What?! Doesn't matter if he's going to get any better or not! He's already a fucking fantastic player and would vastly improve our strike force. He's one of Scotland's best technical players and he can't get in the squad. I'm not just shrugging it off and looking for excuses. I think it's a fucking disgrace he can't get in. Brilliant player.
