Scottish football appears in crisis and I don’t see anyone coming up with anything which looks like it is for the greater good of the game.. she’s had her shot, most people think it is crap, let’s move on and see someone else come up with something which will move all teams forward.

If Scottish football is in crisis, it's nothing to do with the amount of teams in each league.The leagues have an exciting ending each season the way they are.

Hearts are in in their own crisis due to finishing bottom.You cannot play almost all the sesson and have sporting merit not count.

UEFA had already said sporting merit must be used.

No one needs to come up with anything, we must hope we can get playing in front of fans in a few months time.

There's every chance we can.

I want the cameras to be there, trained on Budge’s face, when this gets voted down.

I would pay an extortionate amount for this Hearts season documentary. To think we're getting it for free.

It would be worth it for one final time.

Imagine something like this.

Are you going to do a tribute?

OK lads, tell me what I'm missing here.

All the reconstruction talk appears to be assuming that we'll have 42 teams in the league as and when football restarts. Nobody seems to be allowing for some of them not making it through the summer. Or that at least a few of the ones that do, won't be financially strong enough to survive a season playing BCD, assuming this is required. 

Which means that even if enough clubs were in favour of reconstruction right now, temporary or otherwise; there doesn't seem to be much point in arguing about the details. Shirley we'll have to wait to see who comes out of this grinder before we can talk about how many will be in each division, or even how many divisions there will be. Right?

I have a feeling we're going to have to reconstruct in some form whether we want to or not. Which makes me think we'll need to hold off until we can say:

1. "OK, as of today, there are X teams left.

2.  Of those, Y won't survive the season without gate revenue.

3. So do we...

a)  Let them fold like the others?
or
b) Work out a way to have the richer clubs subsidise them? 

4. OK, so now we know how many teams will be starting the season...

5. The best format would be...

Or is there a reason why that's not being discussed?

After an August Saturday morning spent on Zoom talking to the likes of Scot Gardiner and John Nelms about starting some form of Championship season in January 2021, Ann Budge looks out the window to see the Hamilton team bus heading to Easter Road:

Can we please reconstruct to have four leagues of 12-12-10-10 so nobody is penalised apart from Hearts?

I’ll run naked around Tynecastle.  If challenged by the police I’ll claim I was testing my balance and sense of direction.

That makes no sense but apparently making sense is no longer a requirement.

We can’t have Falkirk back in the 2nd tier unfortunately.

Be reasonable. How about Hearts get demoted to league one and Falkirk, Caley and Dundee all get promoted?

Celtic will still announce the attendance as 57000 though.

Seems a bit low..?

That's because The Gweedore Emerald Green Harp Hunger Strike Martyrs Memorial John F Kennedy Celtic Supporters Club won't be able to travel. (Their banner won't fit on the boat, either.)

I can see both sides of it hearts have been relegated on an incomplete season which is a disgrace and should never have been allowed to happen.

Budge is only interested in hearts and she has no interest in the lower leagues of her proposal and if she gets in a top 14 , she doesn’t give a shit about what happens to the other leagues or even if they are capable of starting the season.

In what way was it a 'disgrace'?

A bit unfortunate certainly, but hardly a dreadful scandal.

It absolutely had to happen and absolutely should have happened, all the way down the leagues, which it did.

Excluding club 42 who just so happens to be a board member, so not all the way down.

Since when have Hearts and their supporters been remotely interested in the fate of the club that has finished bottom of League 2 ?

Oh of course, I remember now, it's when they can use it as noise to prove how corrupt Scottish football is. Blatant self-interest perhaps ?

Otherwise your concern for League 2 and the lower leagues is admirable.
