The Terrible Journalism & Tom English Thread

Alan Rough on PLZ tonight said that he didn’t think Glen Kamara’s ban was long enough, and that he thought the leniency of it sent out the wrong message.

The wrong message about what, Alan? How to respond to being racially abused?

Total c**t.

Keith Jackson in 'being in a complete and utter fantasist' shock:

This morning's paper edition:

https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/morton-facing-sfa-hammering-unapproved-23915395.amp?__twitter_impression=true

Quote

 

Morton are bracing themselves to be hammered by the SFA after breaching Covid rules to play in a bounce match for trialists.

The Championship club will be hauled to Hampden for a disciplinary tribunal into the unapproved friendly match which is believed to have taken place on the south side of Glasgow in March.

The Greenock club are almost certain to have the book thrown at them for failing to ask for the SFA’s permission to play in the game which was arranged by an agency in a bid to showcase its stable of freelance players.

But the club could also be walloped for breaching the government’s lockdown rules by taking on the game in the middle of a pandemic and also undermining the integrity of the Championship’s measures to combat the spread of coronavirus.

 

This lunchtime's crushing rebuttal:

https://www.gmfc.net/club-statement-sfa-disciplinary-tribunal/

Quote

The club can confirm that we have been disciplined for a breach of the SFA regulations in relation to a recent match played in Glasgow. [...] The club has been fined £750, but payment of the fine has been suspended until the end of the season on the assumption that we do not breach these rules again. If we adhere to the rules for the rest of the season, no fine will be payable.

Contrary to the sensationalist and inaccurate report in today’s Daily Record, there was no Covid breach, the club was not dragged before the compliance tribunal at Hampden today, and we never faced the possibility of having the “book thrown at us”. Rather, last week’s tribunal was very supportive and understanding of the position of the club in this matter.

The club would like to thank the SFA and the compliance unit for the courteous and sympathetic way in which this matter has been handled.

I see one of the headlines on the back of The Sun this morning is basically “New Celtic Chief Exec Owns BLUE Clothes Shocker!!!”
 

Presumably he should have turned up to work in a green suit covered in shamrocks?

One of the main features of this thread is people getting worked by newspaper stories specifically created for Old Firm Da's.

That and claiming the referees, SPFL and SFA are biased against Celtic, despite them winning every domestic trophy since about 1993.

The fact that it is such a significant market to the national media of this country is a very legitimate concern.

First item in the BBC gossip for “Scottish” football today?

About the bigot twins wee sisters “old firm” derby?

They’re not even trying to hide their contempt for the rest of us now

Is women's football not important to you? Does its title race not deserve prominent coverage?

The Women's Game deserves better than to be devalued into yet another old firm wankathon by the media. 

The guy was clearly moaning about the old firm slant to the coverage. It IS terrible journalism.

He was moaning because women's football was given more prominence than any of the men's games tonight.

It's the most important game in the SWPL this week, because it's two of the three title contenders facing each other.

The issue appears to be the prominence affixed to this game, hence the disgust at it being the "first" item on the BBC gossip page.
