Absolute tin-pot lego shite done on the cheap and made of plastic.  Embarrassing.

I really don’t know which of these posts is the worst so I’ll go for both.

I’m thinking that the SFA are going to have to show the Scottish Government that they are taking the Covid procedures seriously and make an example of the Aberdeen 8. I imagine that the players may well get an eight match ban with four of them suspended for a year. Given the more serious potential health problems that Bolingoli could have caused, I expect him to get the full eight matches. It would be a joke if either Aberdeen or Celtic, as clubs, were punished by the SPFL.

8 players x 4 games would be incredibly harsh and I think we'd need to appeal that.

I predict 2 game ban (4 games with 2 suspended)

The thing is that the SFA will have to consider the players individually, and the fact that they all play for the same club will not, and should not, come into it.

and they also have to keep in mind the players broke no rules and this is a retrospective action.

I hope that you’re right, but with the Government to impress I very much doubt it. These are not normal times.

Press release to say "14 day ban" in big letters. Disciplinary report published after papers have gone to press to include "from date of breach".

This is not true. The players have been charged with breaching two existing SFA rules.

I'm hearing speculation from an ex-AFC player that it's a "decent result for the Soul 8"..........

Update - now reckons all will be available for selection on Sunday (bar the injuries obviously)

Presume myself and @tarapoa have the same source. No mention of punishment. Just that all are available for selection on Sunday.

Not true. The rule they're being hit with is 'bringing the game into disrepute' which was on the books before any new rules dealing specifically with the epidemic. Whether they actually broke the rule remains to be seen.

"Suspension of 3 matches. These 3 matches are suspended until 28 February 2021 and will take effect only in the event that the player is found in breach of Disciplinary Rules 24 and/or 71 during that time period."
