We have to show them the same contempt as teams in the SPL, haven't we not.

Who were they, is there a list out yet.

Yes I understand that, but they still voted against us, just like they did in the SPL, no difference in my view.

I believe you are referring to the one club that voted to refuse us permission to enter the SFL. I haven't seen confirmation but believe said club was Clyde. Once confirmed, I will boycott that club's ground forever.

Spl voted us out their league, Sfl voted us in their league(s).

Why should we boycott them?


Sorry I misread nos as meaning numbers :(

Their vote has helped us and I suspect they knew that.

The SFL voted to accept us the way they do with any non-SFL club wanting in.

Our targets have to be the SPL clubs.

There's a big difference between the two votes.

Are we not going to try and foster new friendships with these lower league teams and hopefully along the way dispel some of the Timmy myths about us and maybe we'll help them with our custom.

Boycott is not the way to go.

SFL Chairmen voted to accept Rangers INTO their league, that was after SPL Chairmen decided to gamble at being the big men and kicked Rangers while the club was down, they were expecting the SFL Chairmen to PLACE Rangers into the First Division, they gambled and lost, the SFL Chairmen are our friends, the SPL clubs are our enemies, and we must give these SFL clubs the support they deserve, except for the SFL club that tried to vote us out altogether, that club must NOT make so much as one penny from Rangers supporters

We shouldn't be boycotting anyone in the SFL. Support it, don't protest against it.

Just trying to get a clearer picture of all that's going on, thanks.

If it turns out to be Clyde then I don't think they were motivated to deny us a place. I think it was more to do with making a point that the SFA hadn't provided any of the clubs with any information relating to Green and his investors and raised the question of whether they had done any due diligence on them. Fair points in my view and I read it as a dig at Regan.

Not sure I'm with you here.

Boycott of SFL clubs would be entirely inappropriate. The SFL clubs acted correctly according to their rules and refused to be bullied / bribed by the hypocritical SPL clubs and incompetent SFA. I think they deserve credit for that. I also think that David Longmuir showed more leadership of the game in one day yesterday that his counterparts at the SPL and SFA have done in months.

The SFL clubs are the only ones in this sorry mess that have acted with the much lauded Sporting Integrity.

We absolutely should not have been shoehorned into SFL1 and the vote by the SFL clubs was the right one. Proposing a boycott if these clubs is Tim like behaviour tbqfh.

This would have been my interpretation as well.
The SFA ignored warnings from senior newspapermen, like Traynor, about Craig Whyte, abdicating their responsibility to protect Scottish football, even if this meant upsetting Rangers and their supporters by doing so.
This was actually part of their defence!
They have now passed the responsibility for the fit and proper persons check to the clubs, abdicating THEIR responsibilities yet again.

The SFL, with our financial clout, could yet become the dominant league with better sponsorship and TV rights. Anything's possible in this f*cked up country.

The only team that should be boycotted (for life) is the team that voted us out of the league.
