I have just heard that Rangers football club are about to be punished because their owner is not a "fit and proper person."
I presume he or she was very rich, like all football club owners.
To become substantially rich under capitalism you have to either inherit wealth or acquire it by exploiting others (either legally or illegally).
Surely this applies to nearly all football club owners in this country and makes very few of them "fit and proper."
In the past many of these rich people have paid money to run a club as a plaything. More recently speculators have managed to extract money from them.
Some ultra-rich people still buy clubs with a small part of their unimaginable fortunes.
They feel free to unfairly dismiss managers just because they don't immediately win a trophy.
I wonder if all these clubs will suffer the same possible fate as Rangers.
Surely it is time for fans to take control of their clubs to stop billionaires treating them with contempt one way or another.
