    Am completely bored with it all that I can't say the statement bothers me - the SFA have been corrupt for as long as I can remember so not sure that another review will change anything - appreciate that some feel differently

    An embarrassment and a disgrace

    The point of the review is that there is very very strong circumstantial evidence that individuals within the SFA granted a European License to Rangers when they did not meet the criteria.

    Rangers hid side letters which concealed the monetary payments their players were receiving and therefore throughout that time they were fielding ineligible players ......that is players that Rangers directors stated on oath at Craig Whytes trial they otherwise could not have afforded.

    The secretive 5 way agreement

    I'm of the move on from the sorry episode chain of thought. I'm sick of the whole thing and if I hear EBT again I think I'll explode . It seems the board were thinking along the same lines as me and a good few others. The club can't please everyone.

    My initial reaction is one of crippling disappointment.

    I had a real and genuine sense of pride all those years ago when Petrie spoke of sporting integrity and the need for Scotland to have well run clubs, whilst he could point to the fact that Hibs had cut our cloth accordingly.

    Today we stand shoulder to shoulder with the cheats and the whitewashers whilst booting our own fans (who shelled out decent sums of money for tickets to watch competitions where rules were not enforced equally) in the balls.

    Hibs can gtf as far as I'm concerned.

    Does anyone really have faith in our authorities to enforce rules fairly? Do we really believe that FFP rules won't be glossed over to favour the establishment side?

    I don't.

    I thought we were better than this.

    How do you know what the majority of fans want?

    Far as I can see there's a few dozen people ranting on a message board. That's hardly "the majority".
    No offence but this is part of the reason they get away with it. Imagine you played poker with soneone for many years then found out they had cheated all along?

    Well going be the reaction "a good few others" you are in the minority. They have upset a lot of fans with this statement and looking at Twitter the reaction is mostly anger.

    Will this impact Celtic's willingness to do transfer business with us? Hopefully not.

    At the moment I'm feeling very angry by that statement and questioning whether to go on Saturday.

    This is a slap in the face for us as fans. They have ignored everything that the fans have said on the situation. They are expecting the fans to be nodding dogs and go along with it. The board are spineless and Petrie seems to be looking after his own ambitions.

    We've been let down and I'm being made more angry listening to that **** Regan on the radio basically 'move along nothing to see here'. The fact that they have Dickson as part of that board is as corrupt as it can get.

    The worst thing in that statement is the perpetuation of the myth that the death of Rangers and Hearts going into administration somehow "damaged the sport". Complete nonsense. It was the average Scottish fans' finest hour using their collective strength to ensure Newco weren't allowed straight back into the top league. Petrie and Dempster should hang their heads in shame at this attempt to rewrite history.

    You are willing to tolerate corruption.

    Good to know.

    Disgraceful and cowardly statement Hibs.

    There will be plenty of others who share that viewpoint. They just don't shout as loud as others.

    To me it just reinforces the corruption that has gone on, and will continue to go on. A golden opportunity has been missed here and we may not get another chance.

    I think everyone should read the statement and try to understand why the decision was made. I hate the fact that Rangers got away with cheating but if there is no legal remedy then why waste time, resources and energy on it. Let's focus on our club and our ongoing success.

    Seriously can't believe that people on here don't think this is important. Sporting integrity down the pan. Gutless response, hiding behind legal advice. Embarrassing from Hibs.

  20. #79
    Bitterly disappointed in this, the board have let Hibernian Football Club fown here, we should be embarassed by our lack of movement on this issue but unfortunately we'll probably be just one of many SPFL clubs who takes this view and it saddens me, the message this sends out is Hibs believe the SFA is run well, bull****, ashamed of that.

    Petrie's got his SFA hat on

    Honestly I'd rather we focused on ourselves.

    But the integrity of the Scottish game is at stake, and for the sake of Sporting Integrity that statement is an absolute disgrace. Was always going to happen with Petrie as our chairman.

    I'll be going to the matches because I love my club, but I will not support members of that board who feel It is right to allow teams to cheat the system and claim undeserved trophies and victories which they did not deserve.

    That's the way its always going to get people though, we're basically saying that cheating has no consequece, many will feel what's the point.

    The boards decision was unanimous so they all have to go then, including dempster if that's your view.

    So the message is "If you're willing to use dodgy dealings to gain a sporting advantage and you manage to put some time between doing it and getting exposed then that's ok".

    Scottish Football is on a par with Italian politics. Cowardly decision from Hibs.

    How to shoot all the goodwill in one go. Nonsense statement from Hibs really, really poor.

    This. Hibs to me are the most important thing and the club are concentrating on Hibs. Can understand people's disappointment but as long as our house is order that's all I care about.

    Mistake from the club. Record season ticket sales, everybody pulling in the right direction and they go and do something that'll potentially divide the support and the trust they have gained from the support over the last few years.

    MOVE ON. I'm sure we all have more important things going on in our lives and careers. If not, it's time to go and find something more important. Don't give Rangers the satisfaction that it's "all about the Rangers".

    We moan about the old firm all the time, let them fight this out whilst we focus on the pitch.

    The bit I struggle with is, why does there have to be any legal involvement. As competition organisers surely they make the rules and therefore implement then how they see fit

    If I won the golf championships for years only later to be found out as a cheat I would lose the titles, no? Look at Jessica ennis getting a medal the over month, years after she was cheated.

    Cheating is cheating.
