Personally JS should have made a face to face interview with Raith TV instead of blabbing to a rag like the Courier

Havng said that ,as no longer the chairman he should have keot schtum and let the new Chairman who voted to bring in DG say his piece

So Sim thought seriously about folding the club because of principled fans who stayed away - me included - to demonstrate their disgust at Goodwillie’s signing for a so-called family/community club? We need an owner like that like we need a hole in the head. Talk about spitting the dummy.

I wish people would just shut up and stop complaining about the board and David Goodwillie.

Not 1 person on fan talk is privy to what actually happened that fateful night other than the participants.
The police said there was no chance of prosecution coz of insufficient evidence.

A civil trial does not need to reach the level required to find someone guilty other than the “ balance” of evidence.

This was 11years ago and all the keyboard warriors who in our society now have CONVICTED someone based on “ an opinion” ......coz that was what happened.
Every time, EVERY TIME, posters bring it up it stops the healing process and keeps the division alive.

It’s worse than the SNP sniping and the division it brings to our society.
Far too many people have their feelings hurt and want somebody to resent.
Without Mr Sim we would most likely have no club or be in Div 2 if we were lucky.
CLYDE have had nothing but good things to say about him.
Obviously many of our fans are obviously far more morally correct than those at a fellow club. Rolling Eyes

"initially, my reaction was, ‘well, if he can’t play for the club, let’s close the club"

Followed by...

"Whatever people may think of me, I’m not a dictator.”

and...

We put a statement out saying we got it wrong.

Sim: “I don’t think the board did anything wrong,”

Mr Sim having a bit of a Joe Biden moment? Confused

I second that - great post Cuperman.

Let's not forget that the sanctimonious virtue-signallers - mostly politicians and journalists -could not care less about RRFC (or much else for that matter). What they do care about is their own wee, woke egos and making themselves look good to the people who pay their wages. If the club went out of business. they would all gloat for five minutes, then find another hollier-than-thou cause to jump on the band wagon about.

The young lady in the DG case has said that Sturgeon and the SNP ignored her campaign whan DG went to Clyde. What help and support have the virtue-signallers ever offered her? Did those who made s fortune from all this offer her a penny for her legal bid? My bet is none of the above! Wouldn't it be poetic justice if journalists turned up on THEIR doorsteps and called THEM out on that? They only thrive on controversy, outrage, blame and division instead of focusing on harmony and solutions.

Over the last two-and-a-half decades. which was the most sucessfujl Rovers manager and which was the most forward -thinking chairman? Would we want to replace them with opportunist speculators and some sacked manager from the lower leagues? Unlikely, but the virtue signallers who are not supporters would! They would then feel good about themselves for a couple of days.

The club can, will and to some extent already has moved on despite those hypocritical parasites (I do not, in any way, mean genuinely angry Rovers fans at all - I mean all the insincere, hypocritical hangers-on.) The club is already now beyond them and they will turn their sad, self-righteous attention to whatever DG does next or to demanding that Kenny Shiels steps down from Northern Ireland Women. (Btw -what a huge finger to that lot when Kenny Shiels was overwhelmigly backed and defended to the hilt - by some very emotional women! Very Happy Very Happy )

Now - let's sort it out ON the pitch!

I agree entirely with Cuparman and Neil.

This has gone on far too long now. Time we got back to football.

Any chairman who would think about winding up the club - his words, in a recent article - because of fan protests is, himself, no true fan. He’s just showing off. And this has nothing to do with petty political jibes, though maybe we should all rally behind Boris as you appear to suggest. Can’t imagine him sowing division in society. Cuparman et al. Goodwillie was a very expensive mistake, and Sim and the board should take a hard look at themselves for financial incompetence even if they feel no moral remorse.

Also, Cuparman, it was Sim who started this up again, not me. He came out with these comments in an article a couple of days ago from The Times. Also reported on in several other papers. Perhaps you weren’t aware of that? Try reading before you attempt writing.
