  1. Like you, just living my best life, Bill! In fairness, the thread decended into farce with your first post. Though I was trying to get it back on track.
  2. In fairness, I think its Manga rather than Anime.
  3. I didn't know you were into your Japanese Anime.
  4. You're not usually as vague as this, Bill. What's your theory?
  5. Seems a little spurious without a bit more evidence - i.e. a copy of the agreement or other evidence beyond a couple of loans from MC to St Pats.
  6. Don't think it was covered in any great detail. There was a similar dive from Hayes I think, and it barely got a mention either. Plus ca change.
  7. RIP Billy. Sad news for the game.
  8. If thats true then he's a got a Nacho Novo-esque story to start his career. However he seems to be pretty level-headed and made a good call in reigning in his agent it would seem, so I doubt anything would be made of it.
  9. Fair enough. I wasn't hugely convinced but I did find the immediate fall out from a section of pundits and fans to be quite odd. They had made up their mind already - and it didn't matter whether those frailties existed or otherwise. It points to an old boys network prevalant in the SFA - how many would disagree with that? And it also points to a deep rooted prejudice against anyone with a potential Rangers bias. Bottom line though is that Eck is a decent man and hasn't deserved any of this.
  10. The funny thing was that he was right in some cases about McLean - based on the brief highlights I saw on Sunday night, he had an absolute nightmare. Broadfoot's challenge was a borderline yellow/red i thought, but there was definitely no malice I didn't think. Big Cosgrove had about 3 clear yellow offences in quick succession in the first half so Clark was right, I think McInnes took him off to avoid the inevitable red. The second yellow for Findlay was a fair enough booking but I thought the first one was ridiculous and Mclean shat out of making the correct decision. There wasn't a lot of angles to see on that one so I could easily stand corrected. The McKenzie one was I think a reaction to the circumstances and feeling hard done by. There were other tackles decisions in the game that I thought were mental, albeit again only from the highlights so we are subject to the BBC's selective editing. However calling into question McLean's objectivity must surely attract at least the same level of punishment as we received earlier in the season regarding Collum. And on top of his comments in the last week - my only conclusion is that this is his final audition for the Celtic job.,
  11. Probably similar reasons why the knives were out for Mcleish before his team had kicked a ball. The story I heard was, and I've no way of proving, was that there has been a split of agendas on the SFA Board and one faction was given responsibility for appointing the Chief Executive (Ian Maxwell) and the other the manager (Eck). If true, what that says about the two factions is clear in terms of the pro ABR agenda (Anyone But Rangers).
  12. What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Any others tenets of our justice system you want to see ripped up?
  13. I would agree there is an element of futility, but that doesn't mean I disagree with their efforts, more that I think the vested and short term interests are too great to see any meaningful change that those involved in the last few days will find acceptable. So I will stick on my prediction hat on to say that the frequency and potentially the ferocity of anti-climate change protests will increase in the coming years. This in turn will have in impact on governments, business and every day attitudes to environmental issues. It just wont be enough or quick enough for the more strident campaigners.
  14. What is to say that they haven't done these things already? What if the vested interests are so great that change is glacially slow and the situation gets worse? Sooner or later you need to take matters into your own hands and make a stand. Sure some of their tactics may not get much traction but if it draws the attention of business, politicians, the media and the public, they might argue that this is a success in its own right. Perhaps its not all just a leftist conspiracy.
  15. I guess it depends on how seriously you think you will be taken. Sure, targeted protest might get some results but would it have got anything like the amount of focus and attention as it has done? Personally I admire that they have the courage of their convictions and are prepared to stand up and be counted in order to get their message across. Ultimately their message is that the environment is in a perilous state and requires us to take immediate and drastic action. Sitting on your hands, playing by the rules and polite societal norms sometimes just doesn't cut it in this case.
  16. I think there is a lot to be critical of the BBC with regards to their editorial stance on a lot of topics, but I'm not sure that this is necessarily a particular talking point - all three are stories of sporting interest so perfectly legitimate to be covered.
  17. Letizi Whittaker, Webster, Svensson, Ball Capucho, Black, Malcolm, O'Halleron Kyle, Sandaza Unsurprisingly a lot from the Eck and Banter Years eras. I'm pretty sure there are others that really annoyed me for various reasons so I'll maybe come back and edit this.
  18. Gribz making sure we focus on the burning issues of the day. Mcdonalds overall, but the XL Bacon Double Cheesburger from BK is a favourite too.
  19. Pretty sure they both criticised Morelos for being stupid in the way he tangled with Scott McKenna at Pittodrie. The circumstances were almost similar, in that Morelos' momemtum took him into Mckenna. The difference was Alfy tried to avoid stamping his foot down, whereas Brown doesn't. Brown "knows what he is doing" and it should have been a booking, yet none were given. But Morelos is stupid and deserved his red,.. the mental gymnastics and double standards are obvious to anyone who cares to pay attention. And thats before you consider that Morelos took a kick to the face in retaliation.
  20. They wrote a transfer speculation blog last week and mentioned that the Hastie deal has all been agreed, but he has other offers and isn't finalised.
  21. What has changed? I seem to recall a similar story a little while ago.
