St Mirren re-branding their shop for Celtic a few years back was tinpot.
 
My own club however releasing a lego bus worth 75 sheets goes a fair bit in the tin pottery league standings.

It's worth pointing out we had nothing to do with the club shop, it wasn't part of the agreement and our board weren't best pleased with Lawell. Still a minter it happened right enough.

I always wondered how that was given the go a head. Can imagine a lot of fans weren't happy about it.

If I remember correctly, Celtic were given a representative spot on the St Mirren board for the duration the shop was in operation. 

They lay down to them in 1986. They're not going to complain about a shop sign.

As a serious question on this matter.......how can St Mirren have had nothing to do with it? Did you guys literally hand over the keys to Celtic for the stadium for X amount of time and then just have nobody related to your club on the premises?

The SFA's overall club awards

The SFA rating system means absolutely nothing deserves to be in here.

Only if you fail to understand how licensing works.

Aye. Celtic changed the sign, in broad daylight during the working week, but nobody at St Mirren had any idea it was happening.

I fail. 

I can see all the criteria and understand how the scores are collated. 

I don't understand why you might need a grading system though. Most licences are just to certify a minimum standard for practice, participation etc. 

Once that is met, what's the point? 

Is this for getting development funding under that project brave or something?

This level of bureaucracy does indicate a certain level of tinpottery, permits for everything is pretty third world. 

I'm seething that we only got silver though. Corrupt to the core.

I think it's to do with UEFA? The same article says Dundee, Hamilton and Livingston didn't get licences for UEFA  competition.

I'm assuming there's a cost to it because it wasn't that they didn't get a licence, they all refused one.

To be fair I walked past Tesco yesterday and some dick from Asda has stuck their signage all over the place.

Saw this earlier and instantly knew it belonged on this thread.

I have no idea how it came to be but would love to know it’s origin.

Is this the real reason why Ranjurs were exterminated?
