    Compliance on Power

    Oh God, no. All they will do with that is cause another debacle, except in slo-mo !!

    Compliance on Power

    Well let's just say it's more right than the wrong decision from the ref and you. However, the real point remains cloudy. Which is the SFA's attempt to keep their compliance procedure and the rules of the game clear for the paying public to accept unreservedly. Take the comparison between the Collum incident with Candeias and these last two incidents. In the Candeias incident they were trying to back their ref's decision as being correct, whereas in these last two they are saying that their refs were in effect derelict in the execution of their duties and therefore the CO had to impose bans. How can anybody agree on anything and consider the treatment handed out by the compliance procedure as being fair when there is this kind of confusion. These are only incidents with Rangers, include the other teams and the whole thing becomes a debacle.

    Recent News FEB 13 Club 1872 seeks answers from SFA over disciplinary process > FEB 08 Media Guidance for Supporters > OCT 15 Club 1872 Response to Ibrox Fanzone FOI Release > News Archive > Club 1872 seeks answers from SFA over disciplinary process 13 February, 2019 Club 1872 has today written to the SFA seeking explanation for the incomprehensible decision making of their compliance officer, Clare Whyte and the judicial panels convened by them to oversee disciplinary matters in Scottish football. Supporters of all clubs have been left confused and concerned by the process of citing players for events that it is claimed have been missed by referees, despite clear video evidence to the contrary. There are also major anomalies within the appeals process for red card offences and a complete lack of transparency and consistency in decisions reached. The following questions have been directed to the SFA and we hope that they will properly address this situation before the continued actions of their compliance officer and judicial panels make a mockery of this season’s competitions. How are judicial panels selected prior to appeals being heard? We understand there is a pool of around forty people to choose from but who decides which three of these forty sit on any given panel? Why is this process not transparent and why is there no explanation from the SFA on the role of the compliance officer in these selections? If the selection is not random and transparent, at least to the clubs involved in any given hearing, then why is that the case? With recent decisions, the compliance officer appears to be ignoring the FIFA directive which states that citing cannot be used to correct bad refereeing. We now see instances where referees have awarded yellow cards but then appear to be encouraged to claim they have not seen incidents to allow retrospective action. When do referees submit their reports to the SFA following matches and precisely what steps are being taken to ensure that referees are not subject to any outside influence prior to submitting these reports? The process of citing players after games, and the appeals process for action taken by referees on the park appears to be heavily influenced by certain media platforms and the prominence they give, or do not give, to certain incidents. Incidents have included blatant acts of diving and violent conduct which, when not highlighted by the media, have also been ignored by the compliance officer. Is trial by media an accepted part of the SFA disciplinary process and if so, what safeguards are in place to stop clubs, on whom undue focus is placed, from being unfairly penalised?

    That was not an overhead kick, so no need to take them out of the game. If the ball had hit his boot, studs or otherwise, he would have had no control of it, it could have gone anywhere. Before he goes for the ball he had looked twice at Jack and knew exactly where he was, it was probably a deliberate act of intimidation to prevent Jack from trying to head the ball. McGregor and Power are two entirely different incidents so whataboutary won't work. The ref got it wrong and so has the CO.

    Are you kidding? Studs up and at head height - RED every time. How can we take the hammer throwers out of the game if this conduct is allowed?

    Rangers should ask the SFA that with all the video clips and still photos available showing this incident what constitutes 'insufficient evidence'. They should be asked to clarify, publicly, just what exactly would suit their requirements for 'sufficient evidence' to warrant their acceptance of an action of violent conduct. How can they possibly expect other clubs and fans to maintain respect for their 'compliance programme' in the face of such undeniably selective choices and decisions?
  8. How many polls have the BBC initiated on any athlete in any sport before this? Is it the assignment of the BBC to report, in an unbiased fashion, or to make the news? Should IPSO be informed of the actions of the BBC?

    Compliance officer decision on Defoe

    What needs to be made abundantly clear to the public is how and why the CO decides which incidents to review. She should publish a list of all incidents reviewed and her reasons for reviewing an incident. Surely this would then eliminate 'trial by mhedia'.

    Carlos Pena leaves Rangers

    In view of his reported drinking problems maybe he needs to be 'hung out to dry out' to allow the footballer in him to show properly.

    Pacific Quay Musings?

    Nah, we need publicity to promote the brand. This will all change when we win 55. The way these guys are carrying on you can feel the desperation that the solid challenge is creating.
  12. They are only preaching to their core audience. Who, (a) listens to them outwith their core audience, (b) cares outwith their core audience? Win 55 and they become completely irrelevant.
