Cameraman saw them fine. The footage they put on YouTube was a part screen for some reason. Raw footage shows the goals perfectly well as confirmed by motdwannabe on the League Cup group thread.

Yes I Ken,   but that wouldn't have been as short or as amusing reply. Imo.

It was entirely inevitable that the website was going to fall on Tuesday. The only people who couldn't see that were those tasked with running it.

They then rolled on to Tuesday and hoped for the best.

Life's too short to be bothered answering all of your points opinions, the two lines above sum up your stance on this more than adequately. You're still obviously  convinced that the second line above is precisely what happened. How on earth could you know that definitively?

(Edited to add - these excerpt from the club statement proves that you are wrong):

"None of the board have any expertise in the technologies required to stream matches and have employed professionals to advise and set this up for us.  Whilst we are in their hands, we equally recognise that the buck stops here!"   

"there are two elements to streaming a match – the ticketing/paywall system and the actual match stream.  The actual stream is a separate system operated by Amazon but access to that depends on the streaming ticketing system on our own website and it was that which failed.  That there was a potential problem with this was recognised in advance of Tuesday but steps taken to mitigate the increased volumes through it failed."

 

They obviously didn't just approach Tuesday on a wing and a prayer and with fingers crossed. Stupid to have believed otherwise, but that's fitba' messageboards for you.

I have to admire you in one regard though. It's pretty impressive to have 20-20 vision in hindsight when you're wearing blinkers.

Good stuff from Morton. It was appalling the other night but they've done the decent thing by refunding the money. Providing the service improves, I'll watch the next Morton - QoS game which I wouldn't have done had they refused a refund.

Got my £10 refunded, fair play. Hope it works for you next time. 
 

Now let’s hope Queens can show everybody how it should work this Saturday 🤔

I must say that,  despite all the problems encountered with last Tuesday night's broadcast,  the Morton commentary team were quite good.  Reasonably unbiased and.not too hyper (although there wasn't a great deal to get hyper about admittedly).  If every club that provides commentary follows along the same lines listening to games might not turn out to be cringeworthy. I must admit it made me smile when the camera was on them at half time, the commentator would ask Andy Ritchie a question then look away into space as if he couldn't care less about the answer.

What's the story here?

That’s the same boy you dug up on Twitter a while ago for lifting Stenhousemuir’s image on Twitter and not crediting them.

He’s a local Celtic fan who passed himself off as a Morton fan to get favour with the support and was called out by most of the arsehole element (I mean that in the nicest possible way as I was front row and centre). Over lockdown a lot of us felt he was trying to weasel his way into a voluntary role dealing with Morton’s social media, in spite of a Morton supporting university student filling the post in a part time paid role. He denied having such intentions, but lo and behold the lad in the role was relieved of his duties and it appears Callum has stepped in.

Callum denies this, but many, myself included, don’t believe his protestations of innocence.

Morton fans love to fight each other of course, so I suspect you’ll hear another side of the story.

To be fair, Jamie, and many other Morton supporters, aren’t dealing in hindsight: this was called well in advance.

Morton, as far as anyone can see, took no reasonable steps to ensure the website would deal with the capacity of a live PPV game; they fucked it, as Crawford has acknowledged by accepting that the buck stops with him.

Money — and goodwill — down the drain at a time when we can least afford it.

😳   Uh-huh..............  That’s the sort of comment that someone fat, orange and infectious  tends to call “fake news” . On this occasion, he would be right for once.

At the risk of repeating myself (or, I suppose, Crawford Rae) :

Still, some people are always gonna believe what they want to believe; it’s more fun that way.

In other news, the world is flat. Pass it on.

He referenced 2 elements but missed the third - the actual website and hosting of it. There was an issue identified with the ticketing and paywall system, it was running slow and people were struggling to log in even during the test.

The big issue though was the entire site inevitably crashed.

The payment/ticketing was on the website, it literally says that in the statement. They've tried to fix it by separating the two out

Yep, they tried to fix it but unfortunately it didn’t work. Still, after all the previous guff about the club doing nothing to address the potential issues it’s nice to see Jamie finally admit that they weren’t just sitting around with their fingers up their arses. Progress of a sort.

Basically this - to many it appears he scabbed a furloughed club employee's job to get himself and his podcast ahead. Maybe that's not the case and he denies this but that is where it all started.

In case you missed it. Here’s a cameraman who actually films the goals!

 

Edit - it has just been pointed out to me that the cameraman was the same! Frustrating to say the least!!

Sorry Dunning1874 , all players feel they could play in Premiership not necessarily will play in the Premiership.

There is always Livingston, Hamilton or might I say St Mirren.

Actually not a bad read and does seem to have some gray matter.

As for Charlie himself, I thought he was a good player but lacked the engine required to play at that level

Telfer makes it totally clear in that interview why his career has gone backwards, while apparently still failing to understand it himself; completely lacks the mentality to be a top-level player, which means that whatever ability he has is nowhere near enough to overcome the physical limitations.

Him and McKee should form a 'ma heid wisnae right' club.... we're well rid of both.
