Exactly... and how much extra income is being generated with these fans? Enough to stop clubs going under? I think not.

 

Dungcaster wants everyone back, right now, home and away fans... which we'll be lucky to have this time next year.

 

Good point

 

Elgin are getting 220 fans in but no income as all season ticket holders. Will be same in England.

"If the auditors are unhappy with that arrangement the SPFL may have to pay £1.5m to Sky more immediately and that could affect the plans to distribute money to clubs. Johnston Carmichael, the league’s auditor, has been approached for comment regarding its position and the Sky arrangements.

Pressed on whether the audit could result in clubs having a liability to the league, the SPFL spokesman said: “A variety of issues are still being finalised and will be clarified in the accounts, which are expected to be completed by the end of the calendar year.” In the previous two years, the SPFL accounts were published at companies house by mid-November."

So its going to pan out the whistleblower was correct.

 

Surely Doncaster and co cant have much longer to go now. They gambled on this all being gone and blamed Hearts in the short term. The stupid club chairmen ate it all up. 

 

I think the perfect Scenario is we win the cup on the 20th, Doncaster gets his jotters on the 21st a double celebration.

Pretty much... I like the bit where the article questions whether the SKY ramifications were made clear to all clubs! I don't recall dungcaster asking..." Vote to curtail the league and we'll give you your SKY cash... and then we'll take it all away again because we curtailed the league and have to pay it back!" FFS. How the fcuk do they get away with this!

What happened to the desperate need to get everything wrapped up and over the line so that the poor, needy clubs could get some money in?

 

It's almost as if it had all been hastily rushed through just to grant one shower of green tramps an 8.75 in a row and allow them maximum time to prepare for their almighty assault on the Champions League (snigger).

I just hope there is a scenario where we prove they lied to the court and lied at the arbitration and we end up back in court with access to all, I hope the money from the TV is delayed so clubs who voted for it go bust in a shakespearian tragedy that they so richly deserve....The irony would be spectacular that ven a Yank could understand

Just a thought - I wonder if this is why dungcaster (and shellick) are soooo desperate to get all fans back to games. They need all clubs to start generating cash so that they can then take back the SKY money (they paid out after 'The Vote') to give back to SKY for curtailing last season? 🙄

And if they had just finished the season after a pause in playing, as England, Germany and others managed to do, they wouldn’t have had any money to pay back.

But there could have been a delay to Celtic confirming their Champions League qualification, which would have been inconvenient for them. Better to inconvenience many other clubs instead.

The corruption of thought and acceptance of it, by most of the SPFL clubs, is just astonishing.

Where to start with today's news. 

 

Technicalities of the accounts hide how the payments are set up. Genius QC Rod Mackenzie the author presumably. 

 

The fun might start now.

I think this news could be very telling. Coupled with their arrogant rants at the SG... all is definitely not well with the SPFL/shellick. Hopefully this the start of the end for the SPFL and it’s board. 
 A rebuild from the ground up is long overdue.

I posted some info on the Covid thread in "The Shed", but it is probably worth posting it here, as it could affect Hearts.

 

There is an ongoing but escalating Covid outbreak on the Heriot Watt Campus. It appears to be limited to the student halls at the moment but Hearts, the academy teams and others should be extremely careful to avoid all contact with students, e.g. shared dressing rooms, conditioning or other facilities with HWU football or other sports activities.

 

There are currently 67 students on campus who have tested positive and a further 151 are self isolating.

This was explicitly mentioned as one of the reasons for winding up *with a declared winner* : they couldn't void the season (the clubs were told) because they then couldn't nominate a "winner" to play in the Champs league.  So you have to wonder what powers the SPFL were looking for in the event this season should be abandoned because they were adamant no way could it be voided last year.

And that worked out well for Celtic. Out of the whole thing, including their Consolation Cup group, before Christmas.

Sometimes life can be sweet.

How shocking that any negative news in Scottish football involving certain factions is completely ignored by guys who are supposed to be - by the very definition of their jobs - all over events and happenings within the Scottish game, and only merits the merest mention in passing once a London based outfit has the temerity to bring it up first.

Do BBC Scotland and STV actually have any interest in reporting news or are they all under orders from Doncaster and his boss?

As has been said countless times on this thread, there is a real story out there going right back to that original vote but the media was too happy (or forced) to focus on Bad Hearts stopping Celtic getting their pathetic title.

Fans have been back at Scottish football. 300 at Inverness last week and Ross County have had fans in at two games.

This is Doncaster once again being worked by his puppet master Lawell, who is desperate for supporters to be allowed back in at Celtic Park, not just hundreds or 2,000. Lawell will be after a minimum of 10,000.

Celtic are cursing that it is a SNP government in Holyrood.

Tbf, the tories aren't allowing 10k plus into a ground either soon, are they?

 

As well as being against the health and science advice it would be political suicide if there were outbreaks after. 

 

Doncaster is having a complete mare with this. 

 

IMO almost every decision since day 1 of this has been against not only fairness and sporting integrity but basic Common sense. The last part is still holding true, the whole board must be on glue if they they think big crowds are returning soon. 

 

He's now setting up his deck to blame covid and the government. 

He couldn't repeat how many times it was the clubs and board members who made decisions earlier, the guy, like a tory cabinet minister blames everyone but himself and takes no accountability what so ever, actually maybe he has none....

You have no idea of the very strong links between Celtic football club and the hierarchy of Scottish Labour.

Trust me if Scottish Labour ruled Holyrood, Celtic Park would be getting fans in.

Scottish Media at their very best. A real story that affects every club from top to bottom and it’s ignored. 
 

if these concerns are played out It will show up Doncaster and his henchmen as being completely inept and untrustworthy. It’s becoming more and more obvious that the season was curtailed only to suit Celtic.

The thing is, this time last year nobody could have predicted that something this catastrophic would happen or how it would impact to the levels we are seeing. One thing is for certain, to steer any business like the 'good ship Scottish football' through something like a global pandemic - you require leaders, planners, clear thinking, clever, moral individuals that are capable of making difficult decisions for the collective good. Does this even remotely sound like anyone on the SPFL board? No, we get immoral, corrupt, greedy unintelligent wankers... that, TBH, have made things up on the hoof for the betterment of one club. There were cracks that us normals could clearly see, but I believe these cracks are now beginning to get much wider.

 

Dungcaster, like you say, is having a mare, he's getting his 'story' straight, blaming everyone else and becoming - through his tone - aggressive. Sounds like someone in panic to me. He's getting backed into a corner and I, personally, don't think it will be long until he's gone. Probably, more than likely, chucked under a bus by his puppet master.

 

Poppcorn time is coming.

Going slightly off topic for a moment. I've been hearing that Doncaster is actively looking for a job in England (with the FA ?). Certainly one of the governing bodies.

Anyone else heard anything ?  I wouldn't want to waste money on a Christmas card.

Still find it hard to believe, most are aligned with the Union, feck their leader is English and many are members of lodges. 

 

Anyway, hard to prove either way, I agree the OF do have influence at high levels, but I don't think any government would be having 10,000's of thousands at football games or anywhere else just now Tbh, even the tories recignize that as political suicide if not in the best interests of the public.

The trouble for Doncaster, his cabal and the rest of the clubs within his protection racket, is that their backer, the playground bully if you like, has got someone new in his playground, with greater power and influence, who can't, and won't, be bullied.

The SG are not going to take the chance of allowing fans inside Scottish football grounds, other than smaller ones in low risk areas, anytime soon. They are not going to open up a ground where "home" fans travel from all over Scotland to their club's ground. That would be madness under the current concerns about infection early next year. So that definitely rules out Celtic and Rangers.

Supposing they agreed to keep entrance restricted to local fans, the SG will know that the baying masses that follow them, would try to overcome and break the agreed rules. They have plenty of previous for cloning tickets, showing no concern for the safety of others. So, ironically but beautifully, the very thing that gives Celtic and Rangers their power in Scotland, the religious bigotry that attracts their morons nationwide, is going to hurt them through this.

Its been what the best part of a week now that the DEMAND from Doncaster voiced clearly by Liewell, and my anger and astonishment have not abated, Neither is the willingness of the SMSM to act as the mouthpiece.  Its like Fox news and Rudi Giuliani acting on behalf of that fruitcake Trump.

 

It is clear that Celtic is the ones in big trouble, the TIAR is as good as over, their Thellik man who is wan-o-them has lost the dressing room and the plot.  I just hope he is in charge at the cup final and gone the day after!!!  Mad Phil Three names still going on about the Sevco finances yes after 7 years of predicting a demise, they are still here, if they survive next year and covid, they aint going naewhere! Even he has called for NL to go.

 

The Doncaster demand met by a small flutter of the hand by the first minister which stated run along nicely little boy left Neil walking back to Hampden with a petted lip scuffing his shoes.  The First Minister has agreed along with the 3 other quarters of our great nation to relax for a few days at Christmas,  New Year will be a write-off but ho-hum,   England are coming out of lockdown too early and there will be a cost in numbers rising which is a cost that’s not a problem so long as it’s somebody else that’s paying.  Scottish football will sacrifice your Grannies life so long as they get their green pound.

 

The FM has more or less stated that the 3 house bubble will be OK but just because its allowed, please don’t.  She is risking a political backlash if she does not allow this as we think Christmas is a price worth paying.  The cost of this will be huge and we will end up shut down in January all at level 4,  Then we will need the vaccine to be distributed and the number falling PDQ.

 

All I want from Santa is news that one or more clubs are about to go bust, I will be like a giddy 7 year old getting my first bike.  A cup win will be like getting a PS5 on top of that.

 

The desperate diatribe from Doncaster of the Death-knell of diddy clubs does spark a glimmer of hope he for once may be right.  The Armageddon threat proved to be the first of the big lies.  The calling of the season was a lie, the TV money was a lie, The need for the SG to allow fans in to me comes across as a cover up for something else, they tried to obtain bailouts and no that it would spark a political backlash bigger the King Herod holding a national crèche, so now a pathetic attempt to twist the arm of the SG   The clubs needing the TV money to get by has somehow been delayed????  Hmm is that because they once again lied to clubs?

 

Doncaster handling of the crisis and where we are at this juncture and the storm that’s about to hit land like a collision of faeces against a desk top cooling system.  It’s like the cubicle sales manager finally getting up the courage the day after thanksgiving and pushed by his wife to confront the big pointy haired boss to ask for a much deserved pay rise.   He has prepped his approach a thousand times in his head,  He gets to the bosses office and hands over the obligatory bottle of whisky, a key lime pie which his wife has made and hands over his sales figures and tries to get a word in edgeways but the boss is not listening, he hands over the sales presentation to his secretary who just sticks it in the bin, the Boss says thanks but does not even get his name right.  The secretary puts the bottle of whisky besides the 30 others, she opens and looks at the pie and has a face like she has just discovered a skid mark on her face cloth, she takes it to the coffee station and scrapes it into the bin.  On the way back to his desk, still a bit punch drunk, he passes the office intern who is celebrating a huge promotion and a bonus to go with it while the maintenance guy screws the interns name plate with a whitened smile onto the door of the corner office our hero has always coveted. While the boss not only gets the interns name right he congratulates him on becoming the youngest senior sales manager in the company,  The pointy haired boss walks back to his ivory office cradling that 40 year old bottle of Maccallan the intern has just given him as his Christmas present. As our hero gets back to his cubicle he notices all his stuff boxed, he has to move back down a floor, while his replacement is handing out iced donuts to our heroes work mates and so called friends, who don’t even noticed he is still there.

Doncaster handling of the crisis and where we are at this juncture and the storm that’s about to hit land like a collision of faeces against a desk top cooling system.  It’s like the cubicle sales manager finally getting up the courage the day after thanksgiving and pushed by his wife to confront the big pointy haired boss to ask for a much deserved pay rise.   He has prepped his approach a thousand times in his head,  He gets to the bosses office and hands over the obligatory bottle of whisky, a key lime pie which his wife has made and hands over his sales figures and tries to get a word in edgeways but the boss is not listening, he hands over the sales presentation to his secretary who just sticks it in the bin, the Boss says thanks but does not even get his name right.  The secretary puts the bottle of whisky besides the 30 others, she opens and looks at the pie and has a face like she has just discovered a skid mark on her face cloth, she takes it to the coffee station and scrapes it into the bin.  On the way back to his desk, still a bit punch drunk, he passes the office intern who is celebrating a huge promotion and a bonus to go with it while the maintenance guy screws the interns name plate with a whitened smile onto the door of the corner office our hero has always coveted. While the boss not only gets the interns name right he congratulates him on becoming the youngest senior sales manager in the company,  The pointy haired boss walks back to his ivory office cradling that 40 year old bottle of Maccallan the intern has just given him as his Christmas present. As our hero gets back to his cubicle he notices all his stuff boxed, he has to move back down a floor, while his replacement is handing out iced donuts to our heroes work mates and so called friends, who don’t even noticed he is still there.

Beautifully put.

Can we sue the SFA for the loss of earnings for the European space the cup final would have brought us before they decided to give it away, anything to take money away from the currupt cooperation that is the SFA as well as the SPFL.

Fans have been back at Scottish football. 300 at Inverness last week and Ross County have had fans in at two games.

This is Doncaster once again being worked by his puppet master Lawell, who is desperate for supporters to be allowed back in at Celtic Park, not just hundreds or 2,000. Lawell will be after a minimum of 10,000.

Celtic are cursing that it is a SNP government in Holyrood.

 

You're having a giraffe, right? 

 

There's no political party of any hue is going to permit a mass return to fitba for celtc fans, or any other club's fans for that matter, any time soon.

To do so would be an unmitigated disaster.
