The SFA are treading on thin ice with this policy.

Postby Joe O'Rourke » Wed Nov 05, 2014 11:48 am

Once again a decision was taken by the SFA, or people acting on behalf of the SFA that completely flies in the face of honesty and justice, the words “KANGAROO COURT” spring to mind.

The accusation of “Racism” made by Shay Logan against Aleksandar Tonev is very serious, probably the most serious accusation that can be made by one fellow professional against another, and as such should be investigated fully, and then the appropriate action taken.

As far as i am aware the investigation took place. Not one of the other 20 players on the pitch heard the comments, none of the officials heard the comments, the TV and Radio sound equipment didn’t pick up the comments, and no-one on either of the benches heard the comments, so it was Logan’s word against Tonev’s.

So how on earth can Tonev be found guilty? The reason for that apparently was that he was found guilty based on the widely accepted court of law principle of “Balance of Probabilities” (I’m joking of course) If that was the case there would not be enough room in the prisons in Scotland to accommodate all those who have been accused, but found “Not Proven” it wouldn’t be 3 to a cell, it would be 3 to a bed.

The SFA have now left the door open to any player to accuse another of Racial or Sectarian abuse, without corroboration, the same type of system which was opposed by all those involved in the justice system when it was proposed by the Justice Secretary Kenny Mc Askill. But of course the SFA are far better equipped to administer the law than those who have been trained to do so.

Let’s look at a case that happened quite recently. Kris Boyd of Sevco FC gets summoned to appear before the Disciplinary Committee for butting another player. The evidence was there for all to see on the TV video, Boyd clearly puts his head in the face of the opposing player, not with any great force i hasten to add, but nonetheless he made contact. So what was the verdict? “Not proven” what happened to the “Balance of Probabilities” there?

Let's take you to another case a couple of years ago. All the professional teams in Scotland with the exception of one pay their players a salary with the appropriate bonus if any are earned. The take off at source the tax and national insurance in the time honoured fashion, as in what happens in all other industries.

But the one club which is the exception decides on a different system of remuneration. They decide to pay some of their players and staff through a “Tax avoidance system” or more commonly known as an “EBT”. This allows that particular club to pay enhanced wages because of non deduction of tax, therefore allowing them to sign players of a higher standard, which contributes to an increase of success on the football pitch.

Now because of the system used the club had a very successful period, they won a number of league titles and cup’s, and qualified for the Champions League on a regular basis.

Now, going on the “Balance of Probabilities” did the club involved gain any sporting advantage by being able to attract players of a higher calibre than they would normally attract?

And if in your opinion they did gain a sporting advantage? Is that cheating? And should action have been taken to deal with that cheating? Well true to form the SFA thought all was fine with that system. One team getting preferential treatment over the rest of Scottish Football, that has been happening for a long time, move along, nothing to see here.
