The Falkirk FC Thread

I certainly was, in another place, expressing unhappiness with that. 

We could discuss the fact that unlike Goodwillie Gallgher has accepted his guilt, expressed remorse and repaid his debt to society, but instead of that I just find it very, very amusing to see some Falkirk fans (to their credit not most of them) engaging in whatabouttery already, in some pre-emptive defensive posturing. You can bet that those doing so, should this move be fictional, will still give the player absolute dogs abuse for being a beast the next time the sides meet. 

Funny, that. 

 

Should the SFA look to introduce a system whereby they can refuse to accept a players registration? Eg

Drink driving - 1 year

Assault - 1 year

Drug possession- 1 year

Drink driving that leads to injury or fatality, serious assault, drug dealing, sex offences - permanent

Then we’d have no SFA

I ended up playing against him at amateur level. 

Goodwillie gets mentioned every window now for the past couple of seasons. Wont happen. He is a wee fucking cock.

He certainly wasn't with us when it went for trial.

To think the shite we have put up with for years the threats about not going if DG signs is embarrassing. Maybe if folk had been stronger in the summer then we wouldn’t have people in charge contemplating signing him.
 

Speaking for myself I have only been at approx half a dozen games this season, 3 season tickets not purchased and feeling more alienated from FFC than at any time in my lifelong support of the club.
Whilst I don’t actually believe we will sign Goodwillie the prospect of this happening is something that understandably generates comment on this forum, whether that mirrors feelings in the support as a whole is another matter.
Should this rapey Raploch trash sign for us it would sadly be no great hardship to put my support for FFC into hibernation until the club undergoes a thorough steam clean from boardroom to dressing room.
Hopefully a lot of fuss about nothing but I really am thoroughly scunnered by our club right now.

And Alan Lithgow.  Christ flashing at 4 women some pushing prams and yet the likes of livi dont bat an eyelid in giving him a career.

We are better than Livi morally I would hope. Ditto Clyde.

Looks like there’s a lynch mob forming already on here

I genuinely would be astonished if there’s any truth to this whatsoever. Our board are already under substantial pressure for high risk decisions going wrong and this would probably surpass any of them to date.

Having just installed a management team with the probable intention to try and get fans back onside, I cannot see them going for someone who is likely to have the opposite impact tbh.

I appreciate all the comments re the board not giving a f**k and whilst there are probably individuals of that nature, collectively their mission is to ensure that the club thrives. They won’t achieve that, but doing something that will have a significant impact on season ticket sales would surely be professional suicide?…

You also have to look at the financial aspect from the Sponsorship side of things would any company dare sponsor that player or indeed back the club what sign does that send out. if they did.

You think?

I don’t think it would have much impact at all.

I do actually.

This is somewhat different from the push to get rid of the board. I think opinions are much more polarised in this case and whilst the majority will still go numbers will drop significantly.

The point re sponsorship above is also a good one...

I'm genuinely curious; is it ignorance or malice which is causing Falkirk fans to overlook the fact that it is entirely plausible and equally likely that David Goodwillie is not a rapist?
How are you gauging the likliehood?

Because I am going with the highly qualified judge with years in the profession of judging whether sonething did or didnt happen, and who had the relevant people and information available to him.

You appear to be going with the failure to meet the burden of proof required for a prosecution.

Are you saying you know enough to say its likely the covil court judge was wrong?

The fact he was found guilty in a civil court, and then lost 3 appeals suggests that he is more than likely a rapist.

What makes you think that he is not a rapist?

Is it entirely plausible and equally likely you're talking such nonsense because you're a Clyde fan?

'Equally likely'. 

Good grief.

I’m not guessing whether he is innocent or guilty, I’m simply saying that it is very difficult if at all possible to determine which.

It has nothing to do with him as an individual or the fact he plays for Clyde. It’s just curious how everyone seems to be commenting with 100% certainty of his guilt.
Just stop.

The fact he lost in civil court and lost his appeal is enough for me.

The judge, Lord Armstrong said that both he and Robertson "raped her".

That is fact.

Four judges, whose job it is to look at the evidence and "judge" guilt say he's guilty.
