Exact words from BBC's initial report last night.
"Police looking into threats from online and mail, Special Branch respond to one member of SFA panel receiving a suspicious package.

Police to comment soon."

People only seem willing to stand up to it when it involves their own club.
Which media outlet said that members of the panel received suspicious packages?

AFAIK, it was reported that one member received advice from Special branch regarding suspect packages. That was said by Jim Spence last night around 9pm. You sure that the media reports said they received packages and not just received advice about suspect packages?

EDIT

I see your post above

Police have to, by law, investigate things like that, even if it doesn't seem to be true afterwards.
Actually by law they can investigate his comments alone.

Offensive Behaviour and Threatening Communications act, behaviour likely to lead to public disorder which expresses or incites hatred.

Should he be charged?

They could try, I doubt it would hold up in court.

It's a conspiracy I tell ya. The SFA and Strathclyde Polis are in league against the Rainjurrs

Wally Smith gives it the auld 'we're too big/important to be punished/relegated' claptrap and McCoist's reckless comments were just passion and frustration.

If that's the way you want to read it I guess.

To me it sounds like he just says that there's a reason why the SPL are trying to force us to stay in the SPL: They need the money.
And that if they do decide to kick Rangers out it would have a massive impact on the SPL.

Which is true.

Btw, seems I was right about Lennon being charged:

Quote:
The Compliance Officer has issued the following Notice of Complaint:

Name: Neil Lennon, Celtic FC
Match: Celtic v Heart of Midlothian (William Hill Scottish Cup) - 15th April 2012
Disciplinary Rule(s) allegedly breached: Rules 203, 68 and 71
Principal Hearing Date: Thursday, 10th May 2012

Mr. Lennon has until Thursday, 3rd May 2012 to respond to the Notice of Complaint.

Rule 203: No member of Team Staff shall commit Misconduct at a match, including but not limited to committing acts of the kind described in the Schedule of Offences in Annex C (including where there is aggravation by any factor, including but not limited to prolongation of the incident; combination of different offences; continued use of offensive, abusing and/ or insulting language and/or behaviour; calling a match official a cheat and/ or calling a match official’s integrity into question; failure to comply with a match official’s requests; adoption of aggressive behaviour towards a match official; any racist, sexist, sectarian and/or otherwise discriminatory element; and the degree of any physical violence), breaching the Post Match Protocol and committing Unacceptable Conduct.

Rule 68: No recognised football body, club, official, Team Official or other member of Team Staff, player or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA, shall in an interview, a ‘blog’ on the internet, on a social networking or micro-blogging site, or in any other manner calculated or likely to lead to publicity (i) criticise the performance(s) of any or all match official(s) in such a way as to indicate bias or incompetence on the part of such match official; or (ii) make remarks about such match official(s) which impinge on his character. For the avoidance of doubt this rule applies (i) whether reported to the Scottish FA by a referee for misconduct or otherwise, and (ii) where remarks are brought to the Scottish FA’s attention, or of which the Scottish FA becomes aware, by whatever manner or means.

Rule 71: A recognised football body, club, official, Team Official, other member of Team Staff, player or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall, at all times, act in the best interests of Association Football and shall not act in any manner which is improper.
Took 'em 2 weeks mind you
Fast track indeed.
