Do all Scottish football clubs think Reporting Scotland should stop wasting licence-payers’ money on stupid surveys?


‘Only 3 of the country’s 42 senior football teams are in favour of clubs being punished for the misbehaviour of their fans.’

That’s the headline and above that, the results, when you ask the clubs if they think that they should be punished for the behaviour of those who have paid to get into property they own. Hmmm, let me think, how will they react? What’s that phrase about turkeys and Xmas, again?

We don’t know what the majority (25) think so we cannot say anything about them. We certainly can’t say, just to trigger feeling of righteous indignation, that only 3 are in favour. One or more of the others might be in favour but afraid that the big clubs hear of it.

This is research of uber-dummkopf quality with a hopeless research question, a useless response rate and simply daft conclusions. If two Access to Journalism students, say McLaughlin, B., and McLaughlin, B., on day-release from BBC Scotland, had come to me with this as a proposal for their group project, I’d have said in kindly tones:

‘Sorry lads, you’ll need to think again.’

As for my headline, I don’t have the evidence but my thesis is that they’d say:

Scottish football clubs think fnnn Reporting Scotland should stop fnnn wasting licence-payers’ money on fnnn stupid surveys?

Maybe there’d be more fnnns?

    What Scottish football reporters are really interested in is: WHY ARE REFEREES PICKING ON AFREDO MORELOS?

    Alfredo has a hot temper, so he should be allowed to react in any way he wants, because he is a Teddy Berr. Any player that Alfredo knees in the goaolies, deserved it and should be immediately red carded and given along suspension. Strict liability should be imposed on clubs that if they are playing The Queen’s Eleven, they should just get beat.

      What Ra’ Gers used to have, and don’t have now, is a “Bomber” Brown figure, who would “hoof ye intae the stands” if you went near Wee Alfredo. That also gets the ref onside as he doesn’t need to bother keep Wee Alfredo within the Rules of Football.

      It works for the ‘Tic, who have “Broonie” running around like a maniac, kicking anything above grass height.
      But the pundits don’t help. I remember a Celtic game live, where Scott Brown could easily have been sent off twice for repeated bad tackles, yet he was applauded by the commentators suggesting what a player he would be in England. An live English game followed, where the standard of refereeing suggested Brown wouldn’t last 90 minutes down there—in any game.

      I’m too scared to get involved in that one. He’s from Medellin but was allegedly too scared to live in Govan.
