The main thing that Sevco has taken issue is that Doncaster is being touted as the mouthpiece or tool to put Lawells input on the game which is why they want his removal as its all being influenced by Lawell.

And you think it must be true?

Don't you think that maybe those people are very acustomed to having that exact kind of arrangement in their own favour, and now anything else is unfairly slanted against them?

No mention of Murdoch MacLennan who despite being in the job for years had never given one interview to the press.

Even through this current anarchy, he's only been interviewed by himself.

What's he scared of?

No1 sport  in scotland yet he cant get it a title sponsor. Something well wrong there.

The SPFL currently has a title sponsor, the Ladbrokes deal doesn't run out until the summer. Unless you have inside knowledge that nobody else on this forum does, we have no idea whether or not any deals for a new title sponsor have been discussed, sealed or proposed, and anything that wasn't tied up pre-coronavirus is obviously going to be put on hold.

Christ I never thought I'd ever see so many folk trying to make excuses for this useless cant. Come on if they'd signed a big new deal they'd be crowing about it long before now. These things should be arranged well in advance so that you aren't left in the lurch. I'll come back on and apologise profusely if a deal has been done but I very much doubt it or we'd have heard something and hes had 9 months so far.

The Tunnocks deal was signed and sealed well in advance but wasn't announced until the day of the 1st Round draw because that was the way they wanted it to be publicised. I agree that there probably isn't anything in place, but we can't be absolutely sure of that, and the time to get worked up about it is when the season kicks off without a sponsor, not three months before the start of the season when the existing deal hasn't even run out.

Is the league sponsorship not being given free gratis to Sky as part of the compensation no one was told about? Value £1.5M

If theres a league sponsor deal in place someone better tell them that doncaster was going to give their deal to sky for feck all then.

Neil Doncaster? That English guy woefully running Scottish football for a salary of £330,000? Aye he's doing a terrific job(!)

He's manage to simultaneously outrage The Rangers, Hearts and Falkirk in one fell swoop.

I'll certainly be donating to the community Doncaster statue fund.

The guy shows absolutely no leadership whatsoever, other countries governing bodies have just decided what’s happening and that’s it. Here it’s put to a vote to deflect blame. 
 
Also, he’s on something like 330k a year plus a 90k bonus. How can the spfl pay him that sort of money but can’t give clubs money to ensure existence. It stinks. 


Nail on the head here.

Get him punted and get that £330K plus cash funnelled to clubs struggling to survive this crisis.

If the best interests of the clubs were really of so much concern to him he would have taken a hefty pay cut already.

You do realise that if he's sacked, he'll still get his £330K?

Can you tell us which countries’ governing bodies have ‘just decided what’s happening’?

Unless it's for gross misconduct I would presume.

Neil Doncaster is a useless, incompetent scrotum and based on just his face, his hard drive should be seized just to be sure.

Belgium, Holland and France all decided their seasons were over, and decided if any titles or relegations would be handed out.

If that's true then surely he does have a sponsor lined up after all? And it wouldn't be for nothing, it would be in lieu of money otherwise owed to them as a result of matches being cancelled for reasons outwith the SPFL's control.

He was going to give them it for a fraction of the value ffs.Crazy stuff. Honestly clubs in scotland are struggling for cash but let's give the title sponsorship to sky for peanuts. And your happy with that.

Tbf to Craig, he’s backed Doncaster all the way through.

Personally I think Doncaster has had a mare and needs to be removed from the post however Craig is entitled to his opinion.
