Welcome to the Eugenics Movement.

Where did you hear that?

STV news clearly haven't a clue either, just now they clearly said all amateur sports.

Wasn't that meaning the 5 a side type of gathering. The option should still be available for pyramid clubs to play. Whether they should or not is the hard bit.

Seems like the adult gathering outdoors has taken on the mantle of  'real danger' in the governments eyes. Can't see even the spfl coming out of this unscathed, if I had my cynical hat on I'd find all sort of theories ! Being lucky enough to be able to watch some games down south, feel sorry for the non league fans up north - sure you could play with the crowd guidelines similar to England, with all the risk assessments carried out by clubs. Can't see me returning to Scotland before 2021 and can't be sure of that just yet 😠

Absolutely nothing informed to the clubs so if the catch up acct has been fed info then questions will be asked. 

Clearly stated when asked - multiple times - that our sources were not from any of the leagues. 

So puts that one to bed. 

Edit - Also made it clear that it was not official.

Best of luck to Darvel,Buffs,Maryhill  and who ever else joins in  playing meaningless stop start games in front of nobody.

If they can get licensing approval like Bo'ness did last season, there is a promotion place to the LL potentially on the line this season. There's also likely to be scope for promotion for conference level teams as well for the teams that do proceed. It's highly unlikely that the new cases curve won't have passed through a peak and started to decline significantly well before the end of the season, so getting fans back is not mission impossible.

The indications are with reduced numbers in the leagues there will be no promotion or relgation and clubs withdrawing will do so without penalty, hence the term' meaningless games '

Wonder if all the teams firing ahead actually consulted with their supporters?

So what happens if 11 clubs withdraw from the Premiership and 7, 6 & 9 clubs withdraw from Conference A, B & C ?

Do they still go ahead? Do they re-jig the Conferences. If there is no penalty for withdrawing, no promotion or relegation and no indication of fans being allowed in at any point......what motivation is there for a club to start the season?

Perhaps those who want to start with the current restrictions can enlighten us?

Retweeted by Musselburgh Athletic:

 

An obvious reason for the delay is that the politicians didn't realise that EoS, WoS and SJFA clubs have players on the same professional registration forms that SPFL clubs use.

Is the implication of this statement thst "Tier 6" should be treated differently than clubs within the Conference structure?

Doubt it. By extension once one division of WoS is OK to go the rest should be too as the same argument applies on what is "professional".
