Fair play to everyone bashing on. 

The IMG have made it clear its up to the clubs and therefore every chance in seeing the season out but might be difficult making the deadline for playoffs if bad weather in new year. 

Only an issue if Bankies Darvel Medda or Glen's are champions.

Don’t buy that. Glensmad has said the IMG would listen to clubs if they have concerns. Although this is shirking responsibility, it shows the clubs could get it stopped if they wanted. The clubs saying they’re waiting for the IMG and the IMG waiting for the SFA/ scientists to say. 
The point is that with the exception of Clydebank/Darvel/Kilwinning there is no promotion/relegation. It’s just a hobby to keep ticking over to next season. Again, morally wrong.
well there's obviously not been loads of clubs with concerns or something would have been discussed by now surely then ?

Again, this is the WoSFL thread. Why would anyone call out any other league’s committee on here?

The EoSFL has its own forum on here, it's own clubs, and it's own fans. I don't see anyone calling out their committee for playing.

The SoSFL has its own forum on here, it's own clubs, and it's own fans. I don't see anyone calling out their committee for playing.

The LL has its own forum on here, it's own clubs, and it's own fans. I don't see anyone calling out their committee for playing.

The Juniors have their own forum on here, it's own clubs, and it's own fans. I don't see anyone calling out their committees for playing.

The HL & NCL have their own forum on here and greater presence on FN, it's own clubs, and it's own fans. I don't see anyone calling out their committees for playing.

It's only here on the WoSFL forum that largely call out the league's committee for playing. Usually from fans of clubs not participating in the season. And if you're truly of the opinion that football should be stopped for moral reasons, it's easy enough to say all football should be stopped even if it is only being said in the WoSFL forum.

Good for them. Everyone below SPL should be stopping as they are not subject to tests. But since the area of football I am most interested in is now the WoSFL, then I will express my opinion here. 

One thing maybe you can answer though. Do all the other leagues you have mentioned still have promotion/relegation throughout all their divisions this season?

it's no coincidence that all the people on here ranting on about stopping league's are fans off clubs who have decided to take a season out ?
Now I have no problem with any team taking the season out or playing on ,that was up to each individual club on whatever grounds ,health ,safety or financial reasons but some off u seem desperate for it all to fall flat on its arse ,the teams are classed as semi professional wether u agree with that or most teams are is debatable for sure but teams were given the choice to play or not ,they made there choice ,and until the medical experts decide that in there opinion it should stop if no longer safe then we'l probably continue
rightly or wrongly ,but don't continue to diss every team giving it a go cos your team ain't ,
getting a bit childish and petty looking .

Do the players off the clubs taking a year out still train too  an  intense level too maintain their high fitness levels ? They will surely be at a disadvantage next year after taking a year out ?

No promotion or relegation in the NCL or East Region. North Region has no promotion or relegation, they even came up with a one season solution so that they could play this season. Despite nothing to play for. The South of Scotland & HL are in the same spot as the WoS Premier in that there's a chance of promotion for their champion club but no relegation.

It's only the LL and EoS that have promotion and relegation. In the LL case there was a chance of no relegation up until near enough Christmas when the option was withdrawn.

I believe there are players furloughed, if they were at an official training session I think that would constitute working, that is against the law.

I saw recently how long it took extremely fit 16 year olds to get match fit , surely men in their 20 s and thirties will be at a massive disadvantage next season if they have not trained to the same levels or played actual matches ?

As an extremely unfit 47 year old I would have no clue how difficult it would be to get fit, I would think players would keep themselves ticking over though.

Ha 😃, your not that unfit 😀. Be interesting how the bookies price it up next year as I doubt complete teams can miss a whole year then be competitive the next year . They may off course sign new players or play youth players who are still playing ?

Yes all the remaining clubs have agreed to compete in the competition. I believe they are hoping it will be played around March/April time

Surely if teams who aren't competing this season are also not training as that wouldn't be in the best interests of players and committees health or well being the same reason for not playing also sending players out on loan isn't looking after the player like stated

Down here in Bristol (tier 3) we've had games still going on, with max crowds of 150. All contact details taken etc, other leagues looking at a Jan 16 return.  My honest opinion says shut down until February, then maybe return if players get tested - would be great to have say a £30 test, so you can keep playing.

Tucker was on one of the podcasts and explained it very well in regards to the Talbot, he said it was a health and well being as well as a financial reason, he also said that some  players wanted to play, I suppose they are now the ones out on loan.

clearly some players will want to play. they're adults and  the duty of care passes to the loan club.
