None I would hope. Seeing as government doesn't hold the power to instantly shut down private businesses without dragging them through the courts.

Never mind working out where the hell to put all those people.  Hosipital beds? hand them back to sons and daughters?

Amazed at how these fitba forums dissolve in to 10 reasons why I hate the SNP/Sturgeon

And yet she can shut down football operations?

Public Health applies to all sectors and it is possible to close the operations of a care home with immediate effect.

At least the SPFL used lockdown to add wording to its rules to address the issue of games cancelled because of Covid protocol transgressions. And the whole 'minimum number of games for a completed season' threshold thing.

Eh? Oh.

Just because it would be hard to do doesn't mean the govt doesn't have the power to do it.

They didn't micromanage care homes because it was hard. they are micro managing football because it is easy and high profile.

Detached from what reality exactly?

The reality which dictates the return of football was in a high profile spotlight where players and clubs were aware that consequences could follow if they breached guidelines.

People going to the pub weren't expected to be part of a bubble, as an example. Whether we think it fair or not, football was in a special position and players and clubs expected to set an example, not make a cnut of themselves.

lol wut

Spoken as if you've never actually left the house in your life m8. An absolute classic of the boot-licking format right there.

Most regular members of the public who leave their house to go out somewhere, generally don't run into police officers instructing them on what to do. If that is your own personal experience, then they must have you down as a right nobber who needs regular supervision in public, but isn't worth the bother of prosecuting.

They did push for an Exec Board option for this year to allow for calling a season incomplete or complete.  The clubs said 'naw'

She can't shut down the clubs themselves. She can however regulate what they can and can't do if they're found guilty of breaking regulations. Only the SFA can officially end the season.

There doesn't appear to be any bubble for footballers either. Essentially the rules they seem to be adhering to at the moment are the same as everyone else with the exception that they actually get punished for breaking them.

You can't see the difference between something that is hard to do and actually having a feasible solution?  Between April and June hospitals were over run, ICU was rammed.  So what would your hard solution have been?  The care of elderly and infirm can't be equated with dealing with a football league that seems incapable of getting through 3 weeks of fixtures without fucking it up.

Absolutely correct.

When did anyone last die of this virus of working age who is reasonably fit?

Loads of folks die every day of cancer, stroke heart disease , dementia - you name it.

The UK deaths in the last few weeks are less than the average.

Time we realised we are being taken for mugs.

Mind you, football players and fans will believe anything that’s put to them and follow like muzzled zombies.

Finally someone with the guts to say it!!!!1 👏👏

Just euthanize the people who end up on the street as a result of the closure. Problem solved.

It isn't in a special position at all. This isn't April anymore: the vast majority of the economy as well as social events were in fact been back up and running for weeks before football started. Footballers might be 'expected to set an example' according to the moronic agenda of the tabloid media in this country but that doesn't mean that they are contractually or legally obliged to buy into that bullshit as well. The double standards on display at almost every level from the government to the moral outrage brigade on here is absolutely wild.

After the Prof’s briefing with captains and managers all clubs need to confess their sins so that a line can be drawn.

No mention of the blitz and the good old British war spirit though. 6/10
