They won't, because so far lower league clubs have held out and held out despite the bully boys trying to pressure them and bribe them. Giving the proposal more credence by attending games will help it to snowball until such times as lower league clubs are crushed under the weight. Bear in mind that we are a lower league club. We are selling out our own. Do you want 8 or even potentially more games a season against these fucking colt teams? Do you want to be promoted after finishing third, 30 points behind a Celtic/Rangers colt team that isn't allowed into the top league? Thats the sort of shambles we are looking at. If you don't think support for it in the Challenge Cup is the precursor to more attmepts to force it into the league structure then I dont know what to tell you?

If they want the Colts teams in the league they’ll do it. Since when have they started listening to the fans?

The two Celtic teams out of cup competition will have more publicity than our X crowd. They really don't give a shite about this competition, last season's final in Inverness for Ross County showed how much they bothered. I also love the regional draws where we were in different region from Stennie as well as other mad regions. They seriously couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.
 
 
The papers might not give a f**k, but those pushing the agenda are certainly taking note. Naive to think otherwise.

If thatw as the case, Rangers would have been admitted back into the top league, or ours, as a new club. How di that go?

You’ve lost me. They put Rangers in the bottom division because some fans made them??

If the fans had a voice we’d have a 16 team top league, tonight’s cup and the league cup wouldn’t have been messed about with and we’d have a fair playoff system. 

The big teams look after the big teams I’m afraid and whether the was 17 or 1700 there tonight matters not one bit

The clubs voted against because enough fans of the clubs made it clear they would not support anything but rightful punting to the 4th tier. Stunned that you dont think it matters what the paying customer does or doesnt do.

I think the paying customer should matter but I’m not running the show and I’ve seen plenty of evidence to suggest they don’t care. 

Anyway I’m not a fan of the SFA, Project Brave, the playoff system, the colts involvement or the Welsh teams so I wish you and Hughsie all the best in your quest to send a message. I’m genuinely right behind you in your attempt to force change but I went to support my team tonight

That Colt team will be better than half the team’s we’ll come up against this season. Whether that was down to their ability or the fact we made 8 changes I don’t know. Ralston and Flex (Number 11?) were decent. Rather we had the number 11 from Celtic than that guy from Hearts on loan.

A trip to Ireland or England please or failing that, Cove.

I await evidence of naivety 

They really don't give a fuk about anything outside the top league,championship (play offs proof) and rest of the league's has no real importance to them other than its there.

The league cup is a mockery now, starting before world cups or euros finishing.

If your point on being naive is based on 1700 at a cup game, colt teams in a nothing cup, colt teams entering the league structure but are nowhere near that, really don't see where you are barking but it's not hard to grasp they don't give one fuk about championship or below and again they will feel they have improved our game that the old firm are our top 2 clubs again

Are you suggesting that there is not an ongoing effort to get the colt teams into the league? Thats how this reads and thats demonstrably untrue.

Did we boycott when they started home teams keeping the gate money in the league giving the old firm a massive advantage (1980 I think)? No. Did we boycott when the league split so the top teams could get more tv cash? No. If by some miracle we got to the champions league would we boycott a competition that is virtually rigged to suit a few big clubs in a few leagues? No. But anyone going to a challenge cup game v a colt team, scabs, it's time to make a stand, save scottish football etc etc...

Absolutely this. They were trying like hell to just place Sevco into the Championship but enough clubs fans made it clear through phone calls, letters, emails etc. that this was not acceptable and they had to put them in the 4th tier - so fan pressure can sometimes have an influence. What should never be forgotten, and to our eternal shame, is that Falkirk FC, under Martin Ritchie's chairmanship, were one of the few clubs who voted to have  Sevco go straight to the Championship or whatever it was called then. What a black mark to have against our name.

So why don't you protest against the SFA outside hampden? You and hughsie can immobile the masses the next time any colt team is in action.  

Fair enough you don't agree with colt teams in the competition, but taking digs at people going to the game is out of order. 

You guys actually remind me of the 'Millie Tant' character from the VIz

Aren't you in the lead as far as digs go, calling people arseholes? I haven't gone anywhere close to that thanks.
