gutted that saturdays game will be my last this season. due to work commitments going to foreign shores for 6-9 months. going to miss the banter disagreements with fellow lichties. totally confident that we will get promoted and hopefully can pick up bbc alba to watch the raith game.

Pretty sure Alba paid x amount and have their choice over what games they want on, SPFL has no choice nevermind us

Do we get paid for this?


Don't think so, think Alba paid a pretty small sum to the league and its included within league payments

Could be wrong though but when I've heard Championship club fans moan about it sure that's what gets said

99% sure this is correct - the TV money made from the deal is split between all clubs in the lower divisions and Alba get to pick X amount of games per season (I can't remember how many they have rights for). It's a shitter for us, especially as it'll cost us money due to smaller attendance/  hospitality takings, but every club knows there is potential for this to happen at the outset and unfortunately we're the club that it affects this time.

Hopefully we’ve won the league by then and everyone can go down dressed as Bonnie Prince Charlie or Flora MacDonald and get on the telly.

Looking forward to Arbroath away next season. Would be class if Dundee, United and Arbroath were in the same league.

It's been a week of mourning for Arbroath as they remained 12 points clear of full time Raith Rovers. It's time to raise a smile and try and support the team in their hour of desperate need.

My thoughts are with you this weekend my precious ones.

Although it's pretty churlish to complain about Arbroath's season given how supremely well the team have played over the first three-quarters of the season, I can understand why supporters might have concerns about their recent form.

They've taken on two of the poorest sides in the division in Dumbarton and Stenhousemuir and been comfortably turned over in both fixtures, without scoring a goal. If they lose to East Fife on Saturday and Raith Rovers beat Forfar Athletic, the gap between the sides becomes nine points, something that doesn't look as insurmountable as a single-digit figure.

Of course, any time Arbroath have slipped up, so too have the Rovers, and they cannot be counted on to put together a convincing series of results. But with standards at Arbroath having been so high for the best part of the season, this recent dip is a little worrisome.
