A tale of the tim – what Rangers sites have to deal with

It’s a Sunday and sadly there’s no news of any new signings yet, unless you want to count promising young Zak Lovelace, but he’s one for the future.

So instead, we decided to regale you of the tale of ‘Jamie Hastings’ (this may or may not be his real name).

This gentleman rightly pointed out that we’d made a little error with our Joe Aribo sums, directing us to a flaw in our percentage workings. Only, instead of pointing out the error, he was abusive:

“Profit of pretty much 100%, aye really? You paid 5 – 7.5 million on him?

Maths not your strong point eh……. genuinely you guys are fcking stupid. Really really fcking stupid.”

In our heads, we’d overlooked that while £10M would be a glorious profit, 100% profit on his actual fee, £350,000, would be, well, £350,000 x 2.

Fair dues. Maths isn’t our strong point, we’ve never denied that.

However, Mr ‘Hastings’ had already given away that he is not a Rangers fan, and eagle-eyed regulars will clearly see how he slipped up.

We failed initially to see our mistake, doubling down on our original content and calling him a ‘moron’. Which, let’s face it, you have to be if you’re a Celtic fan on a Rangers site (with, incidentally, a fake Rangers email address to enhance your case).

Next thing we know he’s spammed us up with 3 messages by the time we next got to moderation of the comments, including words like ‘f*cktards’ and ‘ignorant’ and ‘stupid’. He was mortally offended we hadn’t immediately approved his comments. This apparently proved his case.

We afforded the man a complete apology (sarcastically, of course), despite his abuse, and then he continued his nonsense. So, despite demanding an apology, he refused to accept the apology and instead abused us further.

Now, you may wonder why on earth we’re publishing the Pathetic Plight of ‘Jamie Hastings’ the Celtic fan:

For those of our own who do like to resort to giving Ibrox Noise (and other Rangers sites) abuse when they don’t like an article, the reality of how much rubbish we get from the other side of the city when the greens come in, pretend to be us, and give us their tripe is worse than anything our own can bother with.

This guy was about 15, and we loved this doozy from him:

“Shock you were too scared to post my reply as it would have shown how ignorant and stupid you are. I’m a Rangers fan but I don’t shout about it as I hate been associated to fucktards like you!”

Pull the other one mate and improve the grammar.

This is the ‘pish’ we have to take on a daily basis, and thought we’d share it with you for once to give you an insight into what sites like Ibrox Noise deal with from the tims.

Que sera sera.
