As the man said, why? Seems to me to be a perfectly reasonable response to someone talking shite.

Exactly. If that idiot Levein is going to make up stuff on national radio then the clubs named should absolutely be setting the record straight.

Putting it on record that it wasn't true is one thing; complaining to the BBC is Victim FC stuff that should be left to Celtic and Rangers.

Not to mention the fact that it was McKinnon talking absolute mince in the first place about the whole situation that probably led to Levein thinking or being told what he claimed. They're both gobshites. 

 

PS the kit launch and accompanying statement today is yet another riddy.

Someone literally went on national radio, and lied about something pretty serious the club had done - being held to zero account when doing so. The club were right to comment on it, regardless of the CEO’s comments.

Prefer Raith's approach personally. If Scottish football clubs complained to the BBC after every inaccuracy on air, we wouldn't have much time left to actually play football.

Joe McKee wasn't booed for one stray pass. Joe McKee was booed cos he was guff and a complete shitebag.

That's a cracking interview, the Livingston to Parma stuff :lol:

Joe McKee describing himself as a player who "wanted the ball all the time" in reference to his time at Morton though...

Given the BBC has now apologised on air to us and Raith after admitting they got it wrong, I’d say it was more than worthwhile defending ourselves.

The Goon has got it dead right. And so have Morton.  The club could’ve just posted something on theMorton website, which maybe 50 or so folk would’ve read, about a falsehood aired on national radio and heard by thousands. Complaining to the BBC has led to an apology for what was said; that apology will also have been heard by thousands and the complaint also got plenty of attention in the papers and online. Job done.

 

Re the kit launch Gary’s apparently getting a riddy about.......   a kit launch is simply a way to generate some publicity for a new kit. Like it or not, that’s exactly what the club has done. Those who are interested will now be aware of the strip - if they like it, they might buy it and if they don’t, they won’t. Either way, how the thing was launched will have absolutely no bearing on their decision. 
There are plenty of things about Morton and about Scottish football - and about life in general - to get concerned about at the moment, but - how a football kit gets launched?  Pffft.

It's a riddy for the club, not me.

If you don't think this whole kit launch (and McKinnon making out it's been some sort of well received mystery masterpiece) has been a shitshow from start to finish then good on you. But it has. Will it be yet another version of it that actually arrives at Smiths in September? Probably.

It's publicity for a new strip. Nothing more, nothing less - but if you want to insist that it's embarrassing, fill your boots. 

Will it look somehow "different" when it hits the shop? Maybe. Who cares? I'm sure if you want to you'll find some difference to nit-pick at and insist that it's another embarrassment. Like I said though, if people like it they might buy it, if they don't, they won't. What's gone before won't make a blind bit of difference.

Fred Bachirou has signed for Nottingham Forest from Malmo.  Didn't realise the guy went on to such heights. Always decent for you guys many moons ago. Still only 30

You'll have people along any minute now calling him a rat and downplaying how good he was and pointing out he was involved in the club's worst ever defeat.

He's easily the best player to have played for the club in my lifetime though. Might even pop down and take in a Forest game at some point.

Did hospitality down there two seasons ago. Really good value for money, excellent City for a night out and really friendly fans. Recommend it.
