    I can't remember it either and I'm not going to comment on your point out of context.

    I'm not so sure that this is shite. This story is being published in other media outlets.
    The two authors of the forthcoming paper are very credible medical scientists.
    What is interesting is that they've struggled and failed to get it published for about a year. That in itself is not unusual - they've probably been trying to get it into journals like Nature and the waiting list and failure list for a journal like that is enormous. What's more of a concern is that they've claimed that it's because people view their research as racist. That right there is a red flag and sounds like conspiracy theory bollocks which they need to clarifying. It's unusual to get feedback of that type from reviewers of submitted papers so they need to explain why they think that's the reason for having the paper rejected.
    The authors also state (paraphrasing) that "it's against the law of nature to have 4 consecutive positively charged amino acids, thast has to be man-made." Well it's either against the law of physics or it's not. If it's against the law of physics for it to be naturally occurring then it would also be against the law of physics for it to be man-made. That needs explaining too.
    As of yet, the paper is still not published. It remains to be seen whether that's because it's been approved and is now awaiting a free slot in a future edition in this journal or whether it's still awaiting peer-review.
    So I wouldn't dismiss it just yet.

    So about £8.55m per year "lost" in transfers.

    Comparing Naismith favourably to Tait is borderline offensive.
    Tait is a class act and absolutely one of our best and fittest players. In terms of shear attitude on the pitch and leading by example, I'd challenge anyone to provide a better example in recent memory.
    He's probably been left out of some games because there are better players for a back 3 and maybe to rest him a little.

    Don’t need a right full back. We have the following that can play/have played there:
    Fraser
    Tait
    Finlayson
    Flynn
    MacPherson

    Budget better used in forward areas.

    There should be two commas in the first sentence.

    Is that pedantic enough?

    I might like to point you to the phrase "In theory" and also the word "should" in my post. 
    Oh and I also couldn't give a f**k about being shown to be wrong because it's only a game - much more important things to worry about in life.

    For me, Tait is one of our best, and most versatile, players and I would not be looking to replace him, without consideration to our current wage structure.

    Tait is currently a better defender than Naismith ever was or ever will be. I simply cannot believe that some folk want to replace Tait never mind with Jason Naismith.

    I never get the obsession with bringing back former players at the best of times but Naismith just isn't very good. Never looked anything but the level of the other RC defenders any time we played them. We need to show more ambition. If we want to replace a player it has to be with an upgrade. In the case of Tait imo that would be very difficult in our wage structure.
