    The banner was the wrong thing to do. But a warning to the lads would have been enough for now. Not like st.mirren to make a mountain out of a molehill

    Maybe we should propose that the next smisa pot could be used to fly a banner over a match against Morton with a friendly message.

    This seem to me that the club has over reacted and not for the 1st time. I think back to when someone was banned from the ground for 2 sec of daftness last season. Can't remember the full story but the club and police made it a bigger issue than what it was.

    Wholeheartedly agree.
     
    Most disappointing here is the club have once again made a rip roaring arse of themselves.  Just hours after the club is rightly being lauded for the "wummens team" announcement they go and eff it all up with stupidity.  Petty minded halfwits a times.
     
    A wee word would have sufficed.

    Gordon Scott is really coming across as quite a petty individual once again.
    He is the first to write in his updates about loving the noise "when the drum starts beating" and taking credit that the "stadium feels like home now", the club are constantly using photographs of flag displays and that group of supporters in their ads and social media posts, but one banner they don't like - EVERYONE BANNED.
    He has thrown quite a few tantrums now.  What an unpleasant person to have as a Chairman.
    Still, happy to pay my 25 quid a month in to SMISA so he can tell us what to do!  It's great this fan ownership.

    They've already been in touch with one of the SLO at the club but the decision has been made.
     
    Are we the first fan ownership club to ban their own fans from creating an atmosphere and showing how much they love the club?
     
    Complete over reaction from our own chairman. It's becoming a trait of his.
     
    And yet we don't ban away fans who bring pyrotechnics into the stadium

    Wow... if this is as "mad" as it gets these days and there is such a reaction them game over. My days of taking a large flag to games and sitting in the middle of a singing section have long gone but I've personally been impressed by the behaviour of the fans that make up this group. A warning was all that was required. OTT and will have a negative impact to the atmosphere.

    All seems a bit OTT to me also .  As some have said , a warning would have sufficed.

    Just to reply to some of the above
     
    We’ve never been warned since we started the section. In fact all feedback has been positive. Even from JR and the players.
    We knew the banner was gonna be on the line of what was acceptable - but was only meant as being a bit cheeky - drawing attention to how long it was since they last won a cup!
    There was no backlash from Morton fans, so can’t imagine they were too offended. In fact had a few of them backing us up on twitter. They had one a few seasons back with Tesselaar’s “shitehole” headline..
    We hold our hands up that the banner was a wee bit on the line - and would accept a slap on the wrist or a few games flag ban. But till the end of the season? Don’t think it was that bad.

    The vast majority of womens sport is of course of a lower pace and level of athleticism if compared to men given the physical differences between the genders. There is also a massive disparity in pay in most women's sports that mean sports are mainly taken on as a pass time rather than a legitimate profession. 
    The mistake that several make is to compare men's sport to women's sport rather than just judge it on its own merits. 
    Whilst I don't go out my way to watch it, much like I don't go out my way to watch most matches I have no attachment to, Women's football has improved hugely in the last 10 years. There's nothing 'right on' or modernly diverse about making that factual observation. It will continue to do so as well. Let their game develop at its own pace and find its own level to be judged at rather than box an entire gender into 'its shite'

    I don’t and won’t watch Ladies football, but surely, money spent on a Ladies team is as equally well spent on the men’s team ?

    I don’t see how every £1 spent on men’s football is worth more than every £1 spent on women’s football.

    I’m proud that we are covering youth/men’s/women’s football ️

    Excellent news.

    Initially we’re asking for votes to win to demonstrate there’s widespread support for the Project. Massive impact if Paisley people & wider community endorse the plans.
    It will raise the profile of Baker Street Paisley to a wider audience & offer an opportunity to pitch during next stage at a conference attended by influential industry leaders, funders & government ministers. 
    Help us move to the next stage & build momentum please. 
    Much appreciated.

    Having games defined by age at youth level isn't discriminatory, it's equality.

    Apparently so, I'm not convinced. I pretty much agree with BuddieinEK's post although I suppose that might be because we are both men and have never suffered the institutional misogyny that's inherent in our society.

    Anyway, that's all a bit off topic - I was only giving an example.

    The seethe and rage appears to be from her colleagues in Scottish branch of Labour. Some of it particularly ironic during what was an anti bullying initiative.
    Neil Findlay is a particularly bitter cock of an MSP.

    Just about any rule/regulation/law can be viewed as discriminatory - it all depends on how you approach it.  Whether the "discrimination" is justified/reasonable/ethical/whatever is what's really up for debate.

    Having spoken with Neil Findlay a number of times I have always found him a decent guy. He had help my wife a great deal in parliament on a medical issue and I do thank him for that.
