Whilst its not the most tinpot of actions, Morton deserve a mention again.

We've stopped making programmes too. We now release a magazine every 3 months.

Tinpot 😘 😋.

Surprised more clubs haven't went digital with them by now but you've got the old school fans and collectors that buy them.

Obviously not enough for Morton to make it worthwhile.

The use of “inferring “ suggests that he didn’t call him a clown but instead did something that suggested it. Trying to think what it could be - best idea is he mimed someone walking with big clown shoes

Stunned programs still exist, tbh. But glad to hear they do.

In American sports slang, "putting a clown suit" on someone is severely out-coaching them or blowing them out as to make them look like fools. Such as, "Aberdeen boss Jim Goodwin put a clown suit on Stephen Robinson during the Dons 4-1 win over the buddies."

Forget your goal line technology, forget your VAR, putting a mic on the ref is the way forward. 

They actually did this for a game in the late 80s or early 90s (can't mind when). Was Arsenal against someone.

It was rather eye opening. The abuse the ref took was something else. He had to have a word with Tony Adams about it.

Found a clip! Was 1989.

 Would be interesting to see the full documentary.

Tony Adams was right, he was a cheat, see the blatant robbery that was Chesterfield v Middlesborough. Specifically the Clayton Blackmore non second booking & the goal that was chopped off because, and I quote, "I thought there was a foul"

It's something they do in eggchasing. The fans of that particular "sport" then claim it's better than football because 20 stone tubes are polite to the ref.

It's more like said tubes haven't a clue what the rules of rugby union actually are so just go along with it.

Having said that in 35 years of watching football I've never seen a ref change a decision because Jimmy McTumshie, the centre half of Inversneckie United, shouted at him

ICT wouldn't have had a goal overturned against us if James Craigen hadn't run to the ref explaining that the corner hadn't been taken properly.

I was thinking the same. 

"Haw ref, bet your car doors fall off" is a bit obscure and could be viewed as a threat.

My mate, George Hunter, was at Cowdenbeath and Tiny Wharton was in his last days as a ref.

George protested that a corner should have been a goal kick.

Mr Wharton replied "Do you think I've  come all this way to change my mind son"?

Sure there was a bit of controversy at the time but in the 08 season when Hamilton and ourselves were battling for the league, the Hamilton players surrounded the ref after he'd given a goal for Morton (?) or someone else against them, they surrounded the ref and shouted at him until he changed his mind. Maybe a Hamilton fan can shed more light on it.
