Petrie stepping down for health reasons

Recommended Posts

This absolutely stinks. Why would they announce he is “temporarily standing down”? Surely the announcement is that Rod is unwell and hopes to return once recovered? The timing of this and the fact he has temporarily stood down when there was no requirement for him to do so makes me think there is more to this than meets the eye.

 

I also would not wish unwell upon the man. He gave hearts a lot to celebrate with his poor football club. Hearts legend if anything 😂

Don't wish him any ill will but can't get all PC wishing him well either. The timing of this is very odd and what's with the temporary bit? He either stands down or takes a leave of absence. There is far more to this than meets the eye.

Conspiracy theories continue. 😄

Perhaps he felt it was the fairest thing to do for todays meeting?

The 'health reason' is probably the increased chance of a heart attack today, no doubt brought on by bouts of intense scowling.

If he is genuinely unwell then I wish him no harm, however, it does seem a bit.....well, suspicious (for want of a better word) to me. I wish that tube Neil Doncaster would hand his notice in. The whole SPFL contingent need either rockets up their arse or we need a completely new group of individuals that don't have agendas, and do what's best for Scottish football instead of ripping it apart.

This is just like any public figure when the going gets tough they either stand down for health reasons or want to spend more time with their family. Excuse my cynicism but the timing ?

Totally agree. Lots of crocodile tears.

Hope he is ok, but his wee bag that he carries around is going to be filled to the brim in the current climate.
