Battle of the Rangers

It’s been quite a week in the farce that is Scottish Football. Just when we finally thought all the nonsense we’ve had to endure in 2012, and prior to that, we now have the possibility of being subjected to the most ludicrous examples of league reconstruction with a potential 12-12-18 structure being rushed through in time for the new season. All this meaning that Rangers would still be in the lowest division albeit the third, but guess what after the top 2 leagues of 12 split into 3 leagues of 4, we’ll be effectively playing in the fourth division again! It beggars belief, so no wonder Charles Green is looking for an exit strategy out of our petty league.
And how about this quote from Peter Lawwell from 2008? ” However, the league must not be compromised by changing the rules during the course of the competition and these decisions should not be made on an ad hoc basis”.

Sporting integrity indeed.

Or how about this beauty: “I would say I’ve delivered more in the last two years than the Scottish FA delivered in the previous two decades.” Stewart Regan, 10 Jan 2013. Wow.

Getting away from all that nonsense, plans are progressing for the ORSA Convention at the end of May. If anyone has any friends or family that are considering coming over for it, now might be the time to book flights and accommodation as many airlines are offering some good post New Year sales. For Bears in the Asia Pacific and Oceania region, Air Asia are about to launch a flight Sale on the 15th January, so only a few days away. This is a great opportunity for some cheap flights to Hong Kong. Details can be found here:

For those in the UK, we’ve had word of some great deals just now on www.expedia.co.uk
Flights and accommodation for 2, staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel) one of the hotels we recommend) from the 20th to the 27th May for a total of £683 per person.
The Cosmo hotel is even cheaper and right next door at £664 per person.
  .
We have already had confirmation from the tournament organisers that both the Rangers Youth & Masters teams have been officially invited and both have accepted. The Goalie is in charge of putting the Masters team together and if the names he has mentioned already come through, then no one will be disappointed. We are honestly talking about a team of legends!
  .
With this all in place now we are really going to push on the advertising of this event as we try and raise the profile of our event to as close as we can to the NARSA convention.
For this we have threads on Follow Follow & Rangers Media, we have also launched an official Facebook page for the Event:
