    Some decent points but turgid reading. This is non-journalism where the purpose of the article is to list facts rather than engage the reader. Awful.

    Sorry you got bored, Rooster. I thought I was my usual jaunty, effervescent self, but never mind. Am fascinated that you define “non-journalism” as listing facts rather than engaging the reader. Many might argue that engagning the reader has all too often been at the expense of the facts. Still, listing facts at least puts me one-up on the ‘Daily Record,’ eh?

    I’ll stop now. I’m beginning to bore myself…I see what you mean about turgidzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

    The point you make is fair. It feels like everyone has, if not an agenda, certainly a position on Rangers which makes it hard to figure out what is actually accurate. The media have been found wanting too often on this, the business demands on the Scottish media mean they need to continue to discuss, report and reflect opinion on this story. That leads to a lot of talk but not always much value.

    The first comment here is ridiculous. Journalism should be about informing and educating people, which is the exact opposite of what most of the media coverage on this subject has failed to do (on purpose). Those of us with inquisitive minds welcome an alternative viewpoint from a writer such as Mark (and the others on this fine site) which at least attempts to explain the ins and outs of the legalities of all this, instead of what they HOPE will happen. This work is a boon and I would like it if Mark (or someone else) would have a look at the situation at Hearts as well. Questioning this sort of thing can only make the Scottish game healthier (well, one can hope, if people listen), at least in a financial sense.
