SayNoToSameClub is committed to forcing the Scottish Football Association to confront the truth of the liquidation of Rangers Football Club (1872) and end the deception that the current Rangers FC is a club founded in the Victorian era.
The problem we have is that so far, the SFA has shown an unwillingness to engage with the fans in relation to the new club playing out of Ibrox. Short of UEFA intervention, which I believe is unlikely to come, only sheer weight of numbers can force the SFA’s hand.
This site will continue to hammer home the point that Rangers is a new club but the time is now upon us to carry this fight to the SFA in deed as well as word.
To that end, SayNoToSameClub is opening a membership book, with a view to properly organising a campaign.
If you would like to join SayNoToSameClub, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Initially, we’re asking only for people who follow the twitter account (not you Bryce!) whose account has been active for at least one month, or who can be vouched for by same. Please include your twitter username in the email, as well as your name and location (full address not necessary at this time).
We will then follow and DM you to confirm your membership.
Contrary to rumour amongst our Sevco-supporting contributors, we are fitting this around a full-time jobs, so it may take a day or two before you receive a DM asking you to confirm your membership.
If enough of you indicate a willingness and a committment to get involved, we can then move towards a meeting to elect a committee and draw up a Constitution setting out our aims.
If we can get to that stage, we can begin to plan the necessary steps to bring pressure to bear on the Scottish Football Association.
The SFA can ignore us all individually, they’ll find it far more difficult to ignore a large, organised, committed group of Scottish football fans who will not accept a 12 month old club bragging about their 140 year history.
Too much damage has been done to Scottish football by the old Rangers-SFA alliance to allow that to happen.
We’ve all done our talking on the internet, on blogs, twitter, newspaper comments pages etc.
We can continue to do that.
But there comes a time when talking is not enough, and action is required.
If we are not prepared to do something constructive now, there will come a time when the liquidation of Rangers FC will be remembered as nothing more than a minor bump in their history rather than what is was – its end.
Don’t let that happen through apathy!
