Don't really see how he could do that role full time, for free, whilst being a teacher.
Do we need to wait for the bell to ring before we hear about a signing or a match preview?
I can't see it.
I think the media officer role is part time anyway.
I'm a bit on the fence now. What troubled me initially was the tone of the now deleted Tweets from person who's taken over (then the rant where he didn't really address the valid concerns and was looking for sympathy).
Just proves to us all the kind of person that he actually is, regardless of whether or not he is a sensitive soul who will try and contort himself into being the victim here.
He has a full time job as a teacher, and when this Covid-19 crisis is all over he can go back to a secure wage whilst continuing at playing the Ethiopian Peter Martin for fun, whereas those young chaps who rely on the club for a wage will have genuine an understandable concerns for their future.
It is a really poor show from him. It's one thing being a Celtic supporter and trying to patronise us as his diddy team, but to be a scummer whilst our club is laying off staff at this time is not good at all.
He just comes across as desparate for likes on Twitter too. Using this for personal gain isn't going to get him much sympathy.
The level is meaningless. In football in Scotland (and most places) you can be registered as an amateur or registered as a professional. If you earn a pound a week, you need to be registered as a professional. But nobody would say that someone getting a fiver's bus money at Glasgow Perthshire was a professional. When someone is described as a professional footballer it's obvious from context what is being said.
There's tens of thousands of people registered to play football in Scotland and only a handful as professionals.
The point was that he's one of that handful and has had a decent career in that respect. It doesn't make him a good player in the same was as Paartalu playing for years doesn't necessary make him one.
If they both get good coverage then your complaint doesn't make much sense.
I am not a huge fan of MacKinnon's but I doubt he's up at night thinking of how he can get his name in the bright lights of a small provincial newspaper. It's part of his job to keep the club visible and to accentuate the positive, and as CEO it makes sense for him to be the face of the off-field aspects of the club. Really not understanding what he's doing wrong here.
It was his reference in the post to another community organisation that he was in the tele for doing something for.
All good causes and not really a big issue but it would be nice to see him promoting our own a bit more since he's come in.
I'm sorry. I just don't think that, 'kept a professional career going' as a player refers to playing part time at Airdrie. I would take that to mean that being a football player was their profession and main means of income. I can understand where you're getting a level of ambiguity from, but there's nothing in the context of the post which suggests any ambiguity over its meaning.
The level of football he plays is professional. Same as Sunday league is welfare, etc.
