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

whilst technically true, the fact that Rangers refused to show him the contract doesn't help.

Doncaster should have been shown the door a long time ago, he has been extremely poor at his job but he hasn't been helped by 1 club undermining him publicly at every opportunity. The whole Parks' wanting an apology can get in the sea.

Rangers had to prove the existence of the contract, to satisfy the court of PoH’s standing as an associated member to the SPFL’s rules. That decision was passed in October last year. Did it take Doncaster 8 months to read and understand it?

Got a feeling that when SPFL release their narrative, it'll be Rangers who look like absolute fannies. It's always the case.

FC Edinburgh 
I'm a big fan of the pyramid in principle, but some of the growing pains are, erm, painful. Hopefully we're just in for a turbulent couple of decades before a new equilibrium is found.

Surely the best club statement of all time. 

Huge sympathy for them, and they are away with the fairies by the time they get to the astronomical simile at the end! 😄

STFC had been provided with vast amounts of evidence, that Downing LLP, were involved through some of its holdings, in the financing of Environmental Crimes, Price Fixing, Deforestation, Forced Evictions, Human Rights Abuses, Child Labour, Slavery, Gender Discrimination and Murder.

...but apart from that...

My favourite quotes....

Namely that the parcel of land towards the car park end of the football pitch was being wrongfully occupied by STFC as part of its lease with its landlord, The Thames Club. The land does in fact rightfully belong to a nearby resident and that resident has now legally been given back their land.

 

This unfortunately means that there is no longer room for a full eleven a side sized football pitch at Wheatsheaf Park, namely that the penalty box now belongs to another party.

We doubt that even the starriest eyed of publicity hungry stargazers can shine a ray of light on what has taken place in this regard and in astrological terms, if the reclaimed penalty area at Wheatsheaf Park can now be used as a metaphor, then around the rings of Uranus, someone will definitely be taking another few inches in the box tonight.

 

So, the owners of STFC are now left with two thirds of a pitch and not one big enough to comply with FA rules. In light of this, we understand that there have been several ideas put forward to combat this shortfall including the setting up of a Middlesex over sixties walking football league, with the rationale being that the participants would not have to walk as far to attack each other’s goals.

Most of those big paragraphs are single sentences, cobbled together with too many commas. Like the statements we see coming out of Ibrox, it appears as though they've constructed the first rough draft then hit "Send".
