You have had a feet in both camps throughout, why change now.

I asked for timeframe to when it will actually happen ?

How are you proposing I answer that? They will keep bringing it to the table. If it goes through then they will sort the particulars. Genuinely not sure what you are getting at here?

The next time there is a meeting or vote why don't you organise a protest against it? Make the effort to go through to Hampden to make your feelings known.

Whining about something that hasn't happened, and will not happen, on an internet message board, will achieve nothing.

What a load of fucking shite. 

Lads, stop talking about games, you cant influence the results.

Stop discussing Mark Campbell, you cant influence the result.

I actually contacted Falkirk on the subject when it first reared its head and did my best to encourage others to do the same. Should there be another vote I will contact them again. Of course, me contacting the club might not change the world, but it does further serve to rubbish the pish you have posted above.

It’s not the talking that’s the problem, although it is becoming a bit boring.

It’s the fact that people believe that by attending/not attending last nights game they are somehow influencing the future of our game and have a right to tell people they shouldn’t be going  

Sadly, the people running our game will make decisions and the bigger teams will protect their own interests whether Falkirk fans turn up or not.

Danny Rogers has signed for us, thoughts on him? 

First season with us he was one of the best keepers in the league  but his second spell wasn’t the best and ended losing his place to Robbie Thomson in the end.

In fairness, he only lost his place due to a stomach injury and then couldn't get back in because Thomson was playing well.

What support would Colts really have? I have been at Falkirk reserve games only if I was bored and wanted a day out. Celtic and Rangers fans are no different. I don't see any point in them taking the place of local teams in the professional leagues. No benefit to anyone

It’s clear that fan interest in these colt teams is a big factor in this whole argument though? It’s clear the SPFL want them but they can’t pitch them due to no fan interest, if nobody turns up against them, they won’t have a leg to stand on. How can you not see that?

Think a lot of you are just looking at someway to get out the house, try look at the bigger picture for once, this isn’t just about falkirk fans it’s about every professional team in Scotland.

Right fellow Bairns.

Can those that want to go to games and support the team just go to games and support the team.

Can those that don’t want to go to games, just not go to games.

I don’t want to come on here and listen to it all day.

Thanks.

GB.

I can get out the house whenever I want, I don’t need a football match as an excuse. 

I see the bigger picture and believe that attending last nights has no impact on it. If they want the colts teams in the leagues they’ll do it. If it goes to a vote the vote will be no. Me supporting my team last night doesn’t influence either of those things 👍🏻

Thats fine. So whats on the approved content list for the thread today?

Disagreement doesnt mean we shouldnt discuss stuff. No one wants an echo chamber surely?

Just going to get out the house? On a Tuesday night having been at work all day? Anyone there last night was there to watch Falkirk ffs, not as a pat on the back to the SPFL. It’s hardly a vote of confidence for Doncaster to plow on with whatever he wants (he does & will anyway).

If he wants to persuade the clubs to allow colt sides into a tournament, after 2 years of doing it, he’s not going to use crowd sizes as justification (as they are in the most, awful).

It’s a free forum so discuss what you want but if folk want to go to games to support the team then fair enough.

Any Falkirk fan going to the game last night, or any game, are going to see Falkirk. 

A better indicator would be how many fans of Colt teams attended. Looking at the attendances it's safe to say not a lot.

If the SPFL really wanted to push the colts agenda off the back of attendances then surely they wouldn't be incompetent enough to have them playing the same night as a Champions' League Qualifier.  Oh wait...

No ones saying its the only thing, but I cant quite get my head around that people arent seeing its ONE OF the factors which will influence the continued pushing and pressure. Thin end of one of many wedges if you will.

People are asking me to accept blindly that "they will never get the vote through". How naive is that? Do things never change? Do people not have price and a threshold for pressure? Its not helping anyone to pretend this doesnt exist.

Anyway that will probably do it for me. I've said my piece and I think i've done it in a reasonable manner.

Don’t worry wee man, I agree with everything you said. If I was running the club I’d refuse to play against colts and just take the fine.
