2 things to mention. Refereeing and transfer policy. The quality of the referees in Scotland has been a disgrace for years but frankly this year it has been appalling and downright embarrassing. Outwith yesterday's decision the first penalty is given and not given player going away from goal. The handballnat quick speed is an easy decision to get wrong, not for a linesman and certainly if we get the VAR in. I think it's time the SFA got these guys on full time deals. Referees declaring their own allegiance (therefore can't manage those games) and VAR (in which a manager or captain can call 3 reviews in game time.

The 'allegiance' thing would be a mockery, with various claims of dyed-in-the-wool supporters of Clyde, Partick or East Stirling lol.
Yesterday was not only a swipe at Celtic's dominance, it was also a slap in the face for Aberdeen, Kilmarnock and Hearts who are doing their best to challenge - without any biased cheating assistance.
It is also an obvious ploy to tamper with goal-difference which can be crucial in European places.

Best way to deal with that OAB. If ever found to have allegiance else where photos in colours, attending these games in what ever end they support. If friends, family or acquaintances come forward to hold as much integrity as possible then if your found to be lying its a complete loss of refereeing license. That would put an end to it.

You are quite right and I have been saying this for a while.
However, until Aberdeen, Hibs and all the other football association members. step up and support us then we will continue to be seen as paranoid complainers.
I would love to see VAR brought in but I would also like the ref to have a mike so he can explain his decisions and why he has/ has not agreed with a call.
VAR should also be up on the large screen so the supporters can see what HE sees.
The technology is available however, open and honest process is not part of the SFA/ SFPL remit.

Only way to deal with it is to get refs from another country.

I wouldn't give any of them a contract, never mind a full time contract. Being full time is not going to stop their bias or make them better.

The reality is with those changes there would be incidents against us that we may have got a way with but won't any more. But at least we'd have consistency and transparency across our game. There been many decisions that have cost people financially (some not like timalloys bets on pens and cards) , cost league titles, cups in Scottish football and its time in this day and age its now removed and resolved.

Ed007, I've just watched the film Anyone But Celtic by Paul Larkin. Interesting. What's your own take on the film? HH.

{Ed007's Note - It's interesting.}
