It is sometimes important to think before you speak - but, unfortunately, former footballer Jamie O'Hara didn't use that thought process when he said that managing Bournemouth was a bigger job than Rangers after Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard was linked to the vacant Cherries role.
I do have to say that Bournemouth is the innocent party in this discussion, but the comments of pundit and former Tottenham player O'Hara were typical of someone who knows little about Scottish football.
It's easy to sit from afar and make outrageous comments about a football club, its profile and a league where he'd struggle to name five teams, never mind five players. It's ignorance of the highest order, and I'm not sure he expected the backlash that has followed his comments.
Stating that an English Championship club is of a higher profile than Rangers was the tip of the iceberg.
The profile of a football club isn't based on its income, wage bill or spending power. A club's profile is about the standing of the club to a worldwide audience, its history and its heritage.
Rangers is a club steeped in winning trophies domestically and, of course, winning the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1972. As a club, they have supporters all over the globe and can be recognised in the most obscure of places.
The television money on offer for getting to the English Premier League has allowed many clubs to live beyond their means and grow quicker than they could ever have imagined. They play in the most high-profile league in the world, but you can't change your history or erase your past.
O'Hara's reference that there are only two clubs in Scotland is something that has been attributed to Scottish football for many years. It's a boring, repetitive quip from someone who is ill-informed. There's plenty of interest in Scottish football outside Rangers and Celtic.
To start with, nine clubs outside the big two have won major trophies since 2011, ranging from Inverness to Ross County and St Mirren. I'm not sure there's any other major league that can boast that record.
If he means there's only two clubs that can win the Scottish Premiership title, then he's absolutely right on that. The playing budget and depth of squads available to both Rangers and Celtic makes it very difficult for the rest of the Scottish clubs to compete over a full league campaign.
However, if O'Hara broadens his horizons a bit to other leagues around Europe, he will see a recurring theme of the same teams regularly winning their domestic league championship.
Some examples are Bayern Munich having won eight Bundesliga titles on the spin and Juventus' run of nine successive Serie A titles. Those leagues, however, seem to be exempt when criticism is being thrown about regarding recurring winners.
His final analysis was that Bournemouth is a bigger job.
It was great to see Harry Redknapp and Jermain Defoe shut that comparison down immediately. I've no doubt that managing a side expecting to bounce straight back to the promised land of the Premier League brings its own pressures, but the demands of winning trophies and pleasing 50,000 fans every second week is a different level altogether.
Rangers are expected to win every game irrespective of the opposition and, across the city, Neil Lennon will tell you it's the same at Celtic. A draw in Glasgow is a crisis and a defeat means you have to lie low for a few days as the criticism and scrutiny is fierce.
Football in Scotland is part of daily life, people are passionate about it and no matter what size of club they support they do so with full commitment.
Scottish football is alive and kicking. O'Hara should try it some time - or on second thoughts, maybe he should just leave it.
