AS a Falkirk supporter who saw his first game very nearly 60 years ago, I clearly had an interest in this week’s EGM held to consider the Rangers independent inquiry demand. I would argue we were as poorly served as the clubs who were relegated without the chance to play their way out of the predicament. At the very least we were denied the opportunity to overtake Raith or go up via the play-offs.

But we lost the EGM vote. The vote failed by a substantial margin. Scottish football club directors have more important matters to deal with, namely the likely severe damage to their local community by the pandemic and the real threat of their clubs’ extinction. It is time to “draw a line in the sand” and get on with the serious business of cooperation to improve the chances of survival.

Neil Cameron’s The Last Word column is therefore disappointing ("If there’s no smoking gun SPFL have nothing to fear", Herald Sport, May 14). He argues that the 13 clubs who voted for should get their inquiry. He would like Donald Findlay to lead the independent inquiry. Mr Findlay is the chair of Cowdenbeath FC. Mr Cameron does not see the contradiction in this.

Questions need answered, says Mr Cameron. “What was the evidence Rangers believed would have seen Doncaster and SPFL legal adviser lose their jobs?” Well, if the evidence was not in the “dossier”, where else would Rangers have put it?

As I understand it, an objective of the resolution was to have the two officials suspended pending an independent inquiry. It was not the intention to summarily sack them.

I can understand why Neil Cameron and other football journalists would like to see this story run and run but it will do nothing for the wellbeing of Scottish football.

Taxi? Fair?

I WAS interested to read of the spike in sales of the board game, Taxi (Lockdown helps drive sales of boardgame created by Edinburgh taxi driver", Herald Business, May 14), which was created by former Edinburgh cabbie, Derek Carrroll. Players travel around the board, picking up passengers and receiving tips when they successfully answer questions on cities or sports teams.

I have not, as yet, played the game but I am wondering if it has a harsh penalty to match Monopoly's Go to Jail card. A "do you know there is a boundary charge?" card could, perhaps, fit the bill.

Lost cause

I AM happy to offer Russell Smith (Letters, May 14) all of my stash of 300 to replace the balls he has lost playing golf. My wife and I gave up the game for at least two reasons. First, we were worried by the increasing ratio of expletives to standard vocabulary in conversations when we were playing. Secondly, my score for a round had become the number of others' balls I had managed to find while looking for my own. The evidence is lying in several buckets waiting for our local tip to re-open unless, of course, Mr Smith contacts me first.

Treble challengers

ATTEMPTING to challenge Peter McKerrell (Letters, May 14), may I suggest that green belts are not the best sites for housing housing. Housing is better housed away from green belts.

Whose efforts are better or best is for others to judge.

David Miller, Milngavie.

DID Peter McKerrell (Letters May 14) write, when highlighting use of the word unprecedented in these times unprecedented, "unprecedented, unprecedented. Unprecedented"? Unprecedented indeed!
