He's become a bit of a caricature of himself over the years but still comes across as a fairly likeable guy. There are many more deserving targets than Jim in the media right now to target with accusations of fuddery IMO.

You'll find the Devil's Advocate Loyal on here criticising him for the fact that he doesn't press home his supposed allegiances with every available second on SSN though.

To be honest, I couldn't care less what team he supports.

He is a very, very lucky guy to be where he is today with so little talent.

"How good was that Charlie ?"

"Wasn't that a great game Charlie ?"

"Well Charlie, what can you say about that ?"

Although I'm not getting too caught up in the deadline day excitement. The bold Jim knows how to present very well but hanging on every word just to hear which English journeymen are moving to another club is the behaviour of someone with no life.

Carruthers? I met him in there a few times, he went in with another couple of STV workers one of whom was a cameraman, I'm buggered if I can remember his name.

I suppose the posters saying he isn't a bear cause he said so also believe Keevins is a Bankie through and through.

And the bold Jim also wore a TYD band jacket as someone has already said.

Poor Jim is afflicted by a rare form of Tourette's syndrome. He uncontrollably completes sentences with the phrase 'on transfer deadline day' on 2 specific days of the year.

Definitely a Bluenose. Talking up the Piggery is part of his job, he can't exactly go "and now we go live to Torbett Towers, Look at that shower of ugly bassas!" And saying that he isn't a Rangers fan is probably down to the grief he has had over the years. Transfer deadline day wouldn't be the same without him.

It did make the press that story although it was swept quicly under the carpet at Torbett Towers,pretty sure Geraldo McPish made a comment on it in the paper he was working at the time.

Fifteen football thugs who attacked STV
sports presenter Jim White
outside Celtic Park
could escape being caught because he has not made a complaint to police.

White was hit with a series of punches and kicks, and spat on at Parkhead last Saturday, just hours after Celtic had clinched the Premier League title.

The gang chased the Scotsport anchorman and two other members of his team back to the crew car. As they tried to get away, the vehicle was damaged by kicks and the windows were punched.

White, a well-known Rangers supporter, suffered bruising and cancelled a charity appearance at a British Heart and Lung Foundation function in Glasgow that night.

A spokesman for STV confirmed White did not make a complaint to police because he "did not want to make it worse for himself".

He added: "As a company, we are extremely concerned about what happened to Jim and hope it never happens again. It is not what we expect to happen at Celtic Park."

A Celtic spokesman said: "We are disappointed to hear of this incident."

Strathclyde Police said they did not have the incident on CC
surveillance cameras.

Is there no end to what has been swept under their carpet throughout their shameful history.

This is a reason why journalists don't say fckall about this mhob and there is similar reasons why referees run scared as well.

Terrorist football club indeed.

The Celtc spokesman who was disappointed to hear of the incident probably meant that everyone should shut their faces and it shouldn't be talked about again.
Of course he got his wish.
