Why are Raith bothered about being champions?

I get the promotion thing. I'm in favour of 2 up / 0 down as well but what's the point in naming champions.

It gives no practical or monetary advantage. You'll never get a championship winning game or get to watch the team lift the trophy and nobody will consider it a real championship.

I'd be practical, accept the promotion if it's on the table and don't make being named champions as a red line.

There’s plenty of money to be made. Yes no championship winning game this year, but still a chance to sell merch and have photos with the trophy and probably the most important aspect financially would be being able to have flag day on the opening day of next season(tho it doesn’t sound as appealing in early winter). These will all boost the coffers, even if not as much as a normal title win.  As for it not being counted as a ‘real’ title, they don’t care, it’s to sell to their own fans, not opposition.

The thing wrong with the statement you released is you arent champions, there is still 8 games to go you might be top but you still are NOT champions as the season has not been completed  and even if it is declared the season is over you never completed the season.  its like pulling out the 100m at the 75m point because your in front and declaring yourself the winner.  That statement just screams out desperation.

Have you ever played football?

Anyone that's played will feel for those players who'd slogged over 3/4 of a season to win the league and will get no memorable reward.

Two case in point, At the age of 17 Bowie was on course for a medal, some players will play a lifetime and not get that chance but he's being potentially being denied it. On the other hand Davo may be looking for a medal to bow out with and he too would be denied.

If the league is called and a team is at the top and being promoted why shouldn't they be declared champs? 

Sounds like sour grapes to me.

Can you explain that?

This on the record explains it better:

https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/sport/football/5492655/spfl-prize-money/

CLUBS are entitled to a total of £9.3million as the residue of the total yearly distribution amount from the SPFL.

Below are the percentages and amounts that will see them land when the cash is finally paid out.

LEAGUE ONE

Raith Rovers 0.5% £46,500

Falkirk 0.43% £39,990

Airdrie 0.35% £32,550

Montrose 0.34% £31,620

East Fife 0.33% £30,690

Dumbarton 0.32% £29,760

Clyde 0.31% £28,830

Peterhead 0.3% £27,900

Forfar 0.29% £26,970

Eta, beaten to it.

That's also my preference but the amount of folk having sly digs at my club when their own club would do exactly as the Rovers have done is pushing me towards wanting to be announced as champs for the meltdowns. 

Aye. That's fair enough.

I suspect it's a bluff from Raith. They'd take promotion, 1st place prize money and no title.

It's not sour grapes. I'd be genuinely surprised if this was a line in the sand for Raith. Would they vote no to 2 up / 0 down with no champions declared? I seriously doubt it.

All the stuff you're talking about is basically 'it's generally nice to win a championship'. The season could have been played out normally and Raith might have finished 2nd, so all these guys would still miss out on medals. Nobody would see that as unfair.

It would be totally different if the championship was already mathematically secured. it would be a travesty not to award it in that case. But you all know that is far from being the case.

Posted above that might be for the league standing (i think someone mentioned that money had been paid out over the course of the season) thats the percentage of the prize pot the League 1 clubs are entitled to.

https://spfl.co.uk/news/spfl-prize-pot-reaches-25m

The link has the annual total for each club/place for 18/19.

The Sun is saying Forfar have more to get than their Chairman said. I know who I believe.

The sun article does say thats the residue so i guess that means what money is left in the pot to be given out between all the clubs.

Agreed.

If you told us that would happen at the beginning of the season every single Rovers supporter would take it. 

League 1 is killing us. We need to be in the Championship at least.

Based on 2018/19

The percentage is the share of the total £25m the league distribute. Forfar get 0.29% is £72500.00 for the season for finishing 9th. This doesn't explain why the sun says they're due £26k but the chairman says it's £3k.
