Why do the media push for RFC NewCo in SPL?

The argument will continue for a long time regarding the dilemma between morals & finance in Scottish football.
Morally, I personally do not think there is a question to answer, clubs who cheat for gain should be kicked out and made to start again and Rangers are just lucky that we do not operate a pyramid system in Scottish football, otherwise it wouldn’t be the 4th tier they’d face next season.
Financially, I question exactly what would be the difference between allowing a Rangers NewCo into the SPL or not.
For years, bloggers like Phil Mac Giolla Bhain, RangersTaxCase amongst others have been advising of the possible outcomes in this whole farce of a situation but time & time again have we witnessed all shot down in flames, which continues to this day even though they’ve all had far better success than the succulent lamb media.
So why has it been so difficult for the laptop loyal in Scotland to accept the demise of Rangers FC?
I was very surprised to listen to Clyde 1’s Superscoreboard this week and listen to Graham Speirs openly admit that the death of Rangers would mean a death of sorts in his own position. Surprised I was as after all this time, years gone by since Phil started to release HIS exclusives, a hack had finally succumbed to this conclusion.
It’s no secret that revenue figures have dropped for all Scottish media in recent years & this is the primary reason why hacks such as Speirs, Keevins, Guidi, King, Traynor, Young, English & many more do not want to see the death of RFC.
Think about it this way, An RFC NewCo is forced to start somewhere in the Scottish Football League, make no mistake, no mistake at all, supporters of Rangers WILL WALK AWAY.
When they walk, any interest in the media such as newspapers, radio phone-ins etc will also die & your everyday hack such as Traynor, Keevins & Co will suffer the consequences of this.
This is the main reason why we are shot down in flames when we question why the need to scrap morals in football to seek the financial rewards of a possible RFC NewCo.
It’s not just to benefit of Scottish football, it’s the benefit of your typical Scottish media hack.
Final note – I’ve asked many a hack on twitter for weeks now to answer the question below, I’d love it, absolutely LOVE IT if the below question is asked time & time again as I’ve yet to receive a response from anyone to date.
Simply, “Would the death of Rangers hit figures in Scottish newspaper sales?”

  1. They are totally crappin it if rfc go down the Div 3 they go down to Div 3 too: result? the end for them and their influence towards bigotry, hate and prejudice. No wid that no be awful!

    1. Good point and one I fully agree with. Many times have they stirred the proverbial and watched it simmer upto derby games and then revelled in the aftermath?
      Personally, I wouldn’t feel bad about the loss of the media in this country.
