What's the most "Tin Pot" thing you've seen in the SPFL

Lets call a spade a spade. We're taking about a club that has actively cycled through away kits in union jack and orange lodge colour schemes for years now. The entire corporate and management structure at Rangers knows exactly what they are doing.

Of course they do. Taking money off bigoted fools.

Take the coverage down to a bare minimum, report the score.

The issue with that is then fans of their opponents are collateral damage. I do think they could dial it down, but if Thistle were in the Premiership I'd want to know what was happening at the clubs we were facing.

Is it to do with the bloody stupid sponsor dispute?

Don't think it was, that came later. Sure the opening day thing was because they weren't yet allowed a full attendance, and didn't want to deprive fans of the flag day ceremony. Course that may be bullshit now with the Cinch palava, and a made up excuse like banning folk for safety reasons.

I'm sure I read somewhere they had commissioned their own flag because they didn't want a sponsors one. 

ETA - that could challenge for most tinpot thing

Yeah i read that in a thread on here after the Cinch dispute came to light.

Wait, so they didn't have flag Day on the opening day?

Nah. As others have said, the club wanted to wait until we could get a full house before unfurling the flag. Then I think they thought it wasn’t the best idea to do it against Celtic so it moved back to the Motherwell match.

Wait so the same club that showed up at Parkhead after part of their roof collapsed with 8,000 fans wearing plastic builders helmets showed restraint against their biggest rivals ..... my my my, haven't they changed into paradigms of virtue.

Very commendable thinking about the Glasgow residents being subjected to rioting in the streets., and the council workers having to clean up discarded shitty pants the following day.

Well, it's only a theory. After all, the game vs Celtic was the first league match where a full house was permitted with no away fans there so I don't see what other reason would've prevented them from unfurling the flag that day.

Hadn't ever heard that builders hat thing before, but that is objectively funny and should be encouraged.

After the letter went out from Celtic to their great unwashed season ticket holders in a certain area of their stadium regarding personal hygiene issues, their next game at home was against Dundee and the stewards didn't appreciate some of our fans coming in with gas masks on and threatened them with ejection if they didn't remove them. I tried to reason with them that it was known as 'humour' but that word appeared lost on them. Bloody nazis.
