SFA to boycott Gazza Hall of Fame induction

“SFA chiefs 'set to boycott' Gascoigne's Scottish Football Hall of Fame induction “

Aboslute cretins if this is true. Gazza is one of the greatest players to grace our game.

It’s not a vote on people’s personal lives or off-field behaviour/problems. If it were there’s a long list of such high profile players & people in the game who would be undeserving of any accolades

This is about showing respect for his footballing talent on the field of play. He graced our game and raised its profile. He deserves to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and he deserves to be shown respect by our footballing authorities by attending the event.

Once again shown to be not fit for purpose. Grow a pair SFA

******* UPDATE ***********

Latest news is that the nomination has been withdrawn

Only in Scotland 👍 what an utter shambles

It does seem a bit of a campaign was ongoing on this even before the announcement that he was to get the honour.

Kicked in to real moral outrage once it was.

plenty on the list played less in Scotland some never did
Some with no international caps
Non scots there are a few.

So clearly its personal and if we start down that road we might find not everyone is perfect.

Not to excuse what the guy has done, in fact its pretty horrific, and while illness may be part of why, it cant be used as an excuse.

So are people in there because of what they did on the pitch, or the dug out or behind the scenes ?

Or is this now inclusive of life style?

Too late mate. Looks like one of your fellow bears has already decided that all the Catholics of Scotland are behind it anyway.

Wit they serving spam and chips?

The SFA have not done anything by the sounds of it? Some of their board have said they don’t fancy the dinner. Not a big deal.

I would suspect it added to the pressure to backtrack if the countries governing body have some unhappy people in the ranks.

The nomination committee made the call to put him in.
The mind change came from somewhere
Maybe just twitter lunatics mind you.
