SCOTTISH Football League president Jim Ballantyne has called for an end to the "bowling club" mentality of the Scottish Football Association when the organisation holds one of the most significant annual general meetings in its 138 year history today.
Aye well. For a start, most bowling clubs are solvent. For a second, they don't encourage their supporters to make a nuisance of themselves. And for a third, they don't regard themselves as the centre of the universe.
Perhaps the SFA and the League might imbibe more of the bowling club mentality - it wouldn't do them any harm.
