Quitting his position at the SFA; I'm fed up with seriously wrong game changing decisions going against us, and him saying the square root of FA about it. It's about time we had a chief executive who publicly condemns these buffons in black.

Rather than looking to blame someone else, I'd rather Rodders spent his time looking at Hibs and what's wrong within the club.

Didn't Hearts have a perfectly good goal chalked off?

No. Offside was wrongly called, but the Hibs players had stopped because the offside was given. Hardly the same as the linesman putting up his flag after the ball was in the net.

Somehow I get the feeling that these meetings won't be raising any questions like the above, probably how to avoid talking to the fans and the press on what's going to happen in the near future is top of the list, as always from this board the silence is deafening.

I think he should make a statement at how embarrassed he and the managers and the players are about what happened yesterday.Also included in the statement should be what is gonna happen in regards yesterday and that everyone at the club will not let this happen again.

I saw in the sun newspaper gary c*ck saying something in regards they could not let us beat them.
For some reason i get the feeling WE, at hibs should have this mentality but sadly we dont, why not?
there is a saying "theres only one thing wrong with losing that is not learning anything from it"
we have been beaten by them THREE fing times this season

we seem to shrugg our shoulders and go aw well on with the next game and not learning anything about why we lost to them.

will he make a statement? well i think i ll be living on the moon before he does

but you are right words are sorta bull**** as im sure you are aware as am i, as well as every hibs fan we want action taken, but will that happen?

Bottom line is it seems hibs as a club are bottlers, when it comes to them, you just know we aint gonna give them a doing

A bit action that has a positive impact wouldn't go amiss though.

Hibs have been a soft touch for many years now. No drive, ambition or strong leadership on or off the pitch. The buck has to stop somewhere for this sorry state of affairs, and if a "company" is failing it should be the person at the top who has to go. Over to you Rod, but I won't be holding my breath.

Hibs have been weak for a good few season, with no obvious choice as a team captain. Look at the embarrassment when Calderwood was appointed, he didn't have any back room staff that he could call his own, he didn't even know what positions the players could play or there names to begin with.

Even now there is no squad player that looks like they could captain the team on and off the pitch and it shows, we are club were no one wants to take responsibility for themselves or others, IMO that's one reason we are struggling, they don't know how to dig deep when things aren't going right.

Rather than looking to blame someone else, I'd rather Rodders spent his time looking at Hibs and what's wrong within the club.

I'm not looking blame anyone else. It's Petrie's job to look after Hibs interests. If he's going to look internally to see what's wrong with the club he's welcome to do that. Saying that he's been at the club for 15 years so anything that is wrong should surely be known to him.

As Chariman he's looked on as Hibs have suffered from poor decision after poor decision going against us. Fair enough one or two and if it were just incompetence or bad luck it would be understandable but it's game after game of disallowed goals, retrospective red cards, shoddy penalty decisions etc etc.

Any other Hibs Chairman in my time would have spoken out a long, long time ago.

He's great preaching about "sporting integrity" when it comes to other clubs balance sheets and financial methods but when it comes to aspects of sporting integrity surrounding the actual sport - not a dicky bird.

No complaints, no going public. He should be using his position at the SFA to Hibs advantage, just like every other office bearer has done for their club but he chooses to be "invisible" which is an embarrasment to us.


Didn't Hearts have a perfectly good goal chalked off?

Yeah, I saw the ball being put in the net after two Hibs had played to the whistle and stopped.

Hardly "perfect".

Exactly.

In Pat Stanton's biography he contrasts Hibs position in the early 70's with Aberdeen's in the early 80's, when he was Ferguson's assitant. Hibs in the early 70's had no sway with the SFA so when it came to "controversial" decisions referees could treat Hibs however they wanted and we suffered because of that. With Aberdeen the Donald family practically ran the SFA and no ref dared step out of line. I think anyone who saw both teams will tell you refs treated Aberdeen very differently to us. Another example is Desmond White's position with the SFA during Celtic's 9 in a row.

Petrie does nothing for Hibs in his role as administrator and as a result we are walked all over time and again in important fixtures. Never even a whimper from the guy.

1. Wake up
2. Put kettle on, take tea bag off washing line, make tea and put bag back on line.
3. Pour petrol syphoned from other cars in neighbourhood at 3 am into car.
4. Travel to nearest supermarket, scour car park for loose change and see if anyone has left a poundcoin in the trolleys.
5. Enter supermarket. Pick up anything with yellow sticker and then try to haggle for further reductions from woman at till.
6. Go to office. Read accounts.
7. Go home, picking up any roadkill for use as evening meal.
8. Repeat 2 then settle down to watch super scrimpers DVD bought from charity shop

He should announce that the current TBGAWA** campaign boll*x has immediately been axed and that he will will no longer patronise the fans with meaningless business bullsh*t phrases.

He should apologise to the fans for the last seven years of unrelenting cr*p we've had to put up with.

He should put together a business plan that will enable Butcher to have an almost total clearout and bring in the players he genuinely wants over the summer.




** One poster hit the nail on the head yesterday when he said that our current team are actually Terry Butcher's Green and White Deserters.

On this technicality, there is no problem. Rod could continue to own a stake in the club after resigning - in fact, if the majority share owner (Farmer) decided today that he wanted a change at the top, that is what would happen.

Rod has achieved many good things as chairman and I admire him greatly for those. However, the time has come for change at the top.

I'm not sure, well i am sure that talking with the manager, the chairman, STF, or even Tam McCourt wont make the slightest difference. These people in charge of Hibs dont do answers, and even when they do they answer with a question.

Its actions we need.

2. Call Farmer and get an ok on spending for next year
3. Tell Butcher he has changed his mind about the transfer budget and increased it 3 fold (to 75,000 over 3 years)
4. Make tea, scratch piles eat a ginger snap
