Was there a puff of smoke emanating from behind a picket fence at Auchenhowie? Was Jim Traynor seen fleeing the area on a space hopper or was that just his fundament? At times like this some ‘Zapruder‘ type cinefilm would be instructive. Could one revert to Richard Gough’s gloryhole webcam footage or will this be suppressed by the Traynor Commission? There can be little doubt that Traynor has control of the official Ladbrokes Twitter account. He is paid to push puff pieces on Labrokes behalf.
On Sunday he chose to serve his landlord Dave King with a somewhat interesting missive:
Danny Wilson puts Rangers ahead. Fantastic news for Derek McInnes
Is the use of five ‘L’ a coincidence? Perhaps Traynor thinks he is on the set of Kubrick’s The Shining and is dropping hints that he is the author of this controversial tweet. Kubrick made reference to the Apollo 11 Moan Hoax being filmed at Lot 237. One small step for man, one huge hoax for mankind.
Traynor is fond of a hoax as was evident when he borrowed some prime retail space in Blythswood Square from a Ménage A Trois acquaintance and passed it off as his own. He even paid The Cardigan and Murdo Rent-A-Mouth to turn up to flash their dentures and blind us to the fact that Traynor and Kerr would be ‘impartially‘ working from Murray Park. Would any club Chairman other than Diamond Jim Ballantine give Reservoir Hun Traynor the final word on their PR?
This was a serious own-goal by Ladbrokes. One could infer that McInnes was engaging in match fixing. They quickly removed the offensive tweet but some enterprising social media correspondents screen grabbed it prior to its removal.
I reconstructed the tweet from The Clumpany’s screen grab. Or should I refer to him as Phil Macgiollabhain? It would be a Pandora’s Box of hoaxes if I have revealed a hoax from a hoaxer.
I have always had a good relationship with TC. I asked him privately if he and the denizen of Donegal were one and the same. He would not confirm nor deny it.
I decided to let it go and confine myself to a lower Earth orbit. Just like Neil Armstrong and the entire Apollo space programme. The Apollo Hoax cost $20b which would be circa $120b today. One wonders what Traynor was paid for his part in unsettling the Aberdeen FC manager and his team? Are Ladbrokes currying favour with the blue pound?
