  1. It seems I got that wrong then. So, now that I am aware of my error, each of the players involved should be knighted. Aberdeen should have 6 points awarded for services to the SPFL and to society
  2. How serious was the breach of protocols and rules ? The consequence of postponement of the St. Johnstone match, the risk to themselves and others outside their 'bubble', the potential of passing on the virus to staff at Aberdeen F.C. and future opponents, the possibility that their actions could eventually lead to the league being suspended again with the possible impact of clubs going out of business. The players' statement acknowledged that they broke two sets of rules, but not deliberately. Well, either they knew that the rules existed, in which case they deliberately disregarded them or the Aberdeen F.C. management failed to communicate the rules to the players involved. It's one or the other. In my opinion, the breach is serious and the sanction should reflect the seriousness of the offence and at the same time provide enough of a deterrent to avoid a repeat of this type of conduct by any club in the league. I would suggest a 6-point deduction for Aberdeen and a warning of heavier sanctions should there be any more breaches.
  3. Maybe been asked before but can any Rangers fan explain where they have been so severely disadvantaged that they are going to the extremes that they have ?
  4. What exactly do Rangers supporters want from sporting integrity. Lies and sporting integrity don't mix well. I read the views and spoke to a number of Rangers supporters a few weeks ago and 100% of them said the league was over. The lockdown arrived and all of a sudden they could have won it. Based on what evidence ? Celtic have lost twice in 30 matches and now they reckon that Celtic will lose four times in 8 matches ? Meanwhile, Rangers will win every match left, after losing to the bottom team twice in the last few weeks of play ? No Rangers fan really believes this nonsense. Let's hear it from the Rangers fans who would have demanded Null and Void if they had been 13 points clear at the top. For any person to agree with Rangers' sporting integrity argument, they would need to be delusional at best or disingenuous at worst. Ayr United finished the campaign in a play-off position for promotion to the Premiership. They have been denied that opportunity. It is understandable and it is as fair as we could hope for in the circumstances. Congratulations to Dundee Utd on winning the Championship. Ayr United have lost out. Rangers have lost absolutely nothing.
  5. In what can be reasonably regarded as exceptional circumstances, I fail to see why a team in fifth or sixth position should be any where near a priority. There is no perfect solution and all I tried to do was come up with the most palatable to the majority.
  6. Should it be too onerous to complete the season it would be an opportunity to finally give the majority of fans what they want. Rangers fans were for the last fortnight conceding that Celtic had won the Premiership. So, let's all be grown up about this and at the same time apply some common sense; Premiership: Champions: Celtic. No relegation. Championship: Top four promoted to Premiership to form a new 16-team league. No relegation. League One: Top four promoted to Championship. No relegation. League Two: Top four promoted to League One. No relegation. Four New Entrants to SPFL. Taking into account the possibility that there could be a long delay to the start of the season, a 30-match season for the top division, playing home and away against each opponent, could counteract the effects of fixture congestion. To address the fixture congestion problem in the lower leagues, adapting to a 27-match schedule, playing three times against each opponent, for at least one season, could resolve that issue. This seems to me a reasonably satisfactory way to avoid upsetting clubs, fans etc. and would be fair to everyone. The fans want a bigger top division ? Sorted Some clubs unhappy about being relegated without completing the league season ? Sorted Teams disappointed about no play-offs for promotion ? Sorted The fans and players are bored with playing teams four times ? Sorted Highland and Lowland teams desperate to join the senior set-up ? Sorted

  8. Lots of good players would fail to get a game for the Petrofac Cup holders
  9. Their strategy was to kick Hibs until they couldn't do it any more because of yellow cards. Hence the 5 goals. They then surround the ref at the red card and take another yellow for dissent despite a despicable tackle. Add to that the further reds they should have got. A gang of thugs.
  10. If Inverness are not charge d with failing to control their players, the SFA will not be doing their job. Pity the 5 isn't doubled to 10 goals. Shameful display from Inverness.
  11. The commentary team are priceless. Hoddle tying himself in knots. He agreed that it shouldn't be a red card but then says that's where Stockley Park let themselves down. Fails to mention that he agreed with them. "He was trying to roll the ball back with his boot" Was he Glen ? Aye ? They pay a referee for his opinion and he does a somersault too, after agreeing with VAR. It was as clear a red card as you will ever see.
  12. I re-cycle every day. What's more, my bottle bin is full and it's not due to be emptied for a fortnight. Do you give in ?
