The big distraction in all this was ,,,winning ,, stopped a lot of people looking under rocks and got the fans attention well away from Auldheids discovery of what was actually at playYou hit 'the nail on the head' for me CR.
The point about the 5WA is a central one for me, with this board.
For the life of me, I cannot see how they were unaware of it. Even with their proven level of incompetence.
I know there is, as yet, no proof of their knowledge of it, out there. But if evidence were to emerge, it would be seismic ally destructive for them, both as a board and personally. And also potentially their 'Old Firm' brand.
I think this is at the root of their inaction and cowardice. Could it also be the reason for no FFP in Scotland?
Across the river, at Sevco, it is full battle lines drawn, over every perceived minor slight or issue. Why? Because they have nothing to lose or fear with exposure of the 5WA. So therefore, no fear in adopting a policy of confrontation.
A confrontational strategy will also help keep one of their biggest nightmares at bay. - FFP.
Why the necessity to keep it secret?
If the 5WA was straightforward, and there is nothing to fear for any of the parties to it, then make it public. Show we sceptics and conspiracy theorists, to be nothing more than that. Conspiracy zealots.
Failure to do so, only adds to the sense of something needing to be kept secret, for fear of its exposure being damaging to some party. Whether that be the governing bodies or Sevco.
It cannot be Celtic, as we were not party to it, nor had knowledge of it, according to our Board.
So why the reluctance by the Celtic Board to push for its placement into the public domain? This only adds to the impression, that they too, had a hand in what occured. If only by tacit acceptance and inaction.
I firmly believe the details will eventually see the light of day. The most likely earliest time being, should 'Sevco' go bust.
Excuse my cynicism again, but the blinder currently being played by the Celtic Board, should ensure that this will not happen for a long time. If ever.
The board played a blinder come to think of it maybe Rodgers appointment had fk all to do with Desmond being abused and more to do with to many people probing and asking the right questions by the time the Res12 fellas had handed over what they knew the barriers went up ,,,,,the board proper fkd them tommy
And the support ,,,,,they didn't care we were winning ,,,let's move on ,a want ma seat for saturday ,,,,protest are you kidding ?
just some of the shite answers put up on different boards ,,,,kinda made you really glad you stood in the pissing rain many a nights to get the old board out ,only to let the new entitled supporter in
The first alert was the inaction by the board to the Nimmo smith verdict and the sfa's sleakit part in it i expected a board member or company lawyer to go right through every detail point by point and blow these fkrs out the water
,,,,instead we got silence ,
The pathetic punishments handed out that were ignored by sevco then rewritten to help sevco and still silence
Res 12 again we all knew what happened then ,in fairness it was a hard sell as most of the support found it hard to follow what had went on ,,,a simplified version ,,,,we were robbed ,,,,, just didn't cut it
For me the 5 way agreement is the hang mans noose ,Riley's absence and Lawwells denial are damming ,are we to believe Riley went on holiday and never once checked his inbox
when he was in full knowledge something was planned ,...numerous drafts of the 5wa prove that
and he never showed it to the club ,an agreement that would have an impact on us financially
Lawwell didn't see it ,,didn't here about it ,,,,now has stepped down
I know of one director who was over the moon when sevco got promoted as they could now charge what they want for corporate and hospitality
the customer in the stand matters not a feck and are becoming just as gullible as the sevco mob,
we don't play on a level playing field and it's our board that's tipping it in sevcos favour
