  • Strict Liability not the OBFA is the Answer May 29, 2016
    Football has dominated the headlines this week with events at last Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final once again fuelling a degree of public debate on how the sport deals with the anti-social behaviour it can generate. I say a degree because, as always seems the case in Scottish football, there is much more heat than light […]
