    Where else are they asking then so that they can engage? Right now, they are totally blanking the fans. It's disgraceful behaviour.

    We've given Hibs record sums of money to watch football this coming season.

    They don't give a flying one what we think.

    If we were struggling to get cash into the club, Dempster and Petrie would be far more vocal.

    I actually think it's a bit crap that Celtic are being isolated on this issue. Their responses have been measured, reasonable and seem to reflect the thoughts and feeling of the fans of all clubs (outside Sevco) in Scotland.

    We are all being let down by our own clubs.

    That is starting to look the case.

    The fact the SFA felt the need to release a statement that said nothing new could be a sign they are starting to feel the heat.

    I think it is part of the plan agreed by all clubs. Celtic can say they tried to save face with their fans but end point will be all clubs get to move on.

    It'll be a tragedy if, after achieving record season-ticket sales and assembling the best squad in years, our board goes back to it's old ways and just ignores us !. Don't do it Hibs - talk to the fans before we're back in the dark-age again !!

    Well virtually everything around this whole thing is a disgrace to be fair.

    Leaving aside the SPFL statement saying that a review would be a good thing, the SFA claiming that only Celtic want a review is an interesting development. They (Regan/Rangers - maybe it should be Regangers?) seem to want to force people to take sides. I think that is a good thing. There is no neutral ground on this one. Time for Hibs' senior management to make clear which side they are on I reckon.

    Sitting on the fence is no longer possible. If we say nothing then we are siding with the SFA and a cover up.

    Not entirely correct. The SFA includes the likes of lowland leagues, youth and juniors. SPFL is entirely different set of clubs with different ambitions.

    Also, you cant go down the road of "SPFL good, SFA bad" here - the make up of the SFA main board which knocked back the SPFL letter includes SPFL reps;

    (Alan McRae, President; Stewart Regan, Chief Executive; and Rod Petrie, Vice-President), plus Ralph Topping (SPFL), Michael Mulraney (SPFL), Tom Johnston (Scottish Junior FA) and independent non-executive directors, Barrie Jackson and Gary Hughes.
    Just reposting mine from the other day, as a reminder that this is not SPFL v SFA - there are SPFL reps on the SFA board. Make of that what you will, but for me it just shows how complex the political stuff is around this.

    I wonder if any individual clubs will start to put statements out later this week? Wouldnt surprise me,

    So easy for the club to keep the feel good factor going strong. Tell us you meant it about integrity and want an honest and transparent review of what has went on in the past. If it means we are not squeaky clean then so be it. Time to set the record straight and be at the forefront rather than be dragged along kicking and screaming behing the SFA coat tails.
    45 AND RISING

    Reagan interviewed on SSN few mins ago said that the SFA asked all members for feedback on their decision not to support an independent review and (apparently) not one single club disagreed with the decision.

    He actually said no single club got back to them but it's possible the clubs preferred to go through the SPFL at the time. I now think it's time the clubs started picking sides now. There is no neutral territory left.

    Maybe there are a few more clubs that used EBTs.
    Maybe we did, that why we're keeping our heads down and wishing it would go away. If they don't send some info, all sorts of rumours like this could start.

    The club will keep the feel good factor going by having a team that performs well on the park.

    How can that be, when presumably a majority of the SPFL members want one?
    Exactly. They clearly want collective responsibility on demanding an independent inquiry but the SFA clearly trying to spin that it is Celtic alone.

    Time for somebody with a spine to put their head above the parapet. Unfortunately due to his ambitions at the SFA I strongly suspect that it won't be Rod 'sporting integrity' Petrie or indeed anyone else at Hibs.

    I've said this on another thread, but i really think that Rod needs to choose either us or the SFA - Hibernian Football Club, or Regan's lap dog!

    We need a board independent of SFA influence, and be able to stand and be counted in the face of corruption!

    Bullets in the post. Bombs in the post. Being assaulted in the street. Or at traffic lights in the car? Threats, statements, abuse?

    In short, the Klan. A permanent embarrassment and an occasional disgrace.

    Rangers Tax-Case‏ @rangerstaxcase 17h17 hours ago
    Any fearless journalist want to win an award?
    I have a question I would like you to ask of the @scottishfa ...
    Rangers Tax-Case‏ @rangerstaxcase 17h17 hours ago
    Question: exactly when did @scottishfa first learn that side-letters were a factor in RFC tax investigation?

    Rangers Tax-Case‏ @rangerstaxcase 17h17 hours ago
    Follow-up: Knowing / having reason to suspect RFC had a rule-breaking tax scheme at that precise time, what did @scottishfa do about it?
    Nothing to see here, let's all just "move on".

    Looks like RTC (see tweets 2 posts above) is now briefing our old pal, Phil:

    https://philmacgiollabhain.ie/2017/0...ency-required/

    Once again underlining the tragic state of Scottish journalism.
