Join The Fight

PROTEST AGAINST THE S.F.A. and S.P.L. – HAMPDEN PARK
SATURDAY 6TH NOVEMBER – NOON ‘TIL 1 PM

As you will all be aware, recently resigned S.F.A. match official Steven Craven, in an interview with a Sunday newspaper, has revealed the truth about what took place during the recent penalty debacle at Tannadice. In this interview, S.F.A. Head of Referee Development, Hugh Dallas, is implicated in a cover-up of the truth. 

Craven also revealed details of the post match conversation between the match referee, Dougie McDonald, and Neil Lennon regarding the penalty incident. He stated, “ We told him the version that was a lie .” This is a direct quote from an S.F.A. match official admitting that they lied to our manager about a refereeing decision. This, once and for all, proves that corruption does exist in some form within the S.F.A. 

We believe that, just as Hugh Dallas attempted to make Steven Craven a ' scapegoat ’, so the S.F.A will now attempt to do the same to him and Dougie McDonald, in order to ensure that the whole incident can be ‘ swept under the carpet. ’ This cannot be allowed to happen. 

The purpose of the planned protest is to highlight this on-going situation. We demand that an independent investigation is carried out into refereeing in Scottish football. An e-mail will be sent to every newspaper and television programme that covers football within the UK and Ireland to inform them of our proposal. A letter will also be handed into Hampden addressed to the S.F.A and S.P.L during the protest outlining our concerns.

We are under no illusions about the chances of suddenly having our demands met by protesting at Hampden Park. The thing the S.F.A. hates the most, however, is adverse publicity. They, along with some of their friends in the Scottish media, are active in making sure that some damaging articles never see the light of day. If we, the Celtic support, turn up en masse, the media cannot ignore this. We must do everything in our power to help our club rid Scottish football of pro-Rangers, anti-Celtic bias from top to bottom within the S.F.A.

After the protest has finished, we hope that as many of you as possible will march together with us from Hampden to Celtic Park. Bring whistles, bring banners and most importantly, bring your mates! It is time to show the S.F.A. that we are behind our club and will not let them get away with this.

Boycott McDonalds

If the last week has taught us anything is that we need to fight our own battles. A quick browse over the online community will show two factions, one, Celtic supporters, demanding justice after decades of cheating. The other, the rest of Scotland who think we have a cheek to even complain. There's a lot of sensitive people out there so if you are of that disposition, look away now, MOST OF SCOTLAND HATES US. Anyone who denies that is deluding themselves. There is nothing that gets the ire going in Scotland more than when Celtic are complaining. One of the first things that happen is we cease to be called Celtic and are named "The Old Firm", bizarre. Then there is the legion of muppets lined up in the media, the Uncle Tims like Andy Walker, Murdo McLeod and Craig Burley, money being their God, all ready to stick the boot, play the appeasement card and keep the coins rolling in. Then of course, the rabid huns appear, Chick Young, Ewen Cameron, Keith Jackson, Bill Leckie, apoplectic that the fenians has dared question anything. Then we have the old Paranoia card, that has to be played, because no one is Scotland is bias of course, that's what we get hit with because they tell us no one is against us.  I could go on about the fact that the SFA tried to close us down in the 50's, but I won't. Let's just look at the last two weeks. Hugh Dallas lied, Dougie McDonald lied, Steven Craven told the truth. One of them has integrity, two of them still have jobs with the SFA. Can you guess who? Shall I walk you through it again?

Dougie McDonald is quite clearly a very arrogant man, a Hibs supporter who lives and works in Edinburgh, he has been at the centre of numerous controversies in Scotland, not just involving Celtic, yet seems to have positioned himself into a position of power in the game, as all Refs were ready to walk if he got sacked last week. McDonald strikes me as the type of guy you see in a pub and think "Aw ffs no him again", no personality to speak of, a company man to the last. He should have gone this week, the fact that he hasn't shows you why Celtic supporters are always going to feel hard done by. This is a direct quote from SFA Chief Exec Stewart Regan:

"You can call it a lie if you wish. I think there's acceptance that Dougie
said things in the heat of the moment that weren't true"

Imagine that was the EPL and that was the explination Alex Ferguson got after complaining? You'd hear him rage from here. That's the bottom line for me, there is no need for evidence, no need for ranting, no need to prove anything, you got it straight from the horses mouth that you can lie and get away with it, people will accept it. Of course they will, Celtic are the ones who suffer. And they wonder why the fans on the verge of an away game boycott...

Yet another blog? Aye. As the propaganda war against Celtic increases, you cannie have too many voices fighting back. Similarly, with Celtic PLC drifting further and further away from the support, you cannie let them go unpunished either. This will be an open platform for all Tims to post their points of view. We might throw in the odd interview as well.

Launching(fucks sake, we sound like NASA)-November 1st.
