The coronavirus and the sfa

Recommended Posts

Looks like football could be scrapped in the next few weeks. celtic cannot be gifted the title. Sporting integrity must prevail. Null and void.

Steven wants games played behind closed doors, but that isn't fair on paying fans and it could spread the virus further.

Would insurance cover the costs of Rangers loss of revenue if the league was suspended.

Was talking to a lassie today in work and she was telling me that our insurance would cover ticket costs etc but the insurance doesn't pay for merch sales outside the stadium so in a way the club still loses a lot of money.

Cancel the league and replay it from a fresh next season its only fair. or make it a season draw.🤣

Nobody knows and will likely depend on each club's policies.

Cancelling/closed-doors could see a lot of clubs in serious, serious trouble

I don't think it's a tough one. You can't award teams titles/relegate sides with almost a quarter of league matches remaining. It must be cancelled.

Yep, for most leagues this is a sensible approach.  The SFA though?

If they do this its only fair that they get a 10 point start in next seasons league.

Not fair to punish future players. Who's to say our current ones couldn't have came back with 2 old firms and a game in hand.

Hope they all fucking die mate 🤣

We'd potentially be one of them mate depending on how it goes. We're not sitting on any sizeable cash reserves and have a hefty wagebill to meet. No income until...nobody knows when isnt good. If there's an indefinite stop on games, there's also a massive risk that season ticket sales have to get pushed back and clubs lose the big influx of cash that brings

We are losing merchandise revenue hand over fist because of our useless board. No way we are getting money back from insurance because of Coronavirus 😂

I doubt there will be much appetite to sit in a public space when the virus has infected tens of thousands.  That could be just a few weeks away.  Stopping the league is in the best interests of the fans and players.

We will be covered for season ticket refunds mate surely. The club will be paying out insurance for these sort of events mate or the insurance will cover a lot of things that clubs may face.

That's if the season is suspended.

It'll be cancelling public events, not just football & it's something they should be doing if it continues the way it is just now.

In saying that, if it was us who were 13 clear with 8/9 matches left I can pretty much guarantee every single one of us would be raging if they didnt award us the title lol

What is the Sporting integrity rule/precedent to make this happen?

Trophies in sport mean nothing to the life of any individual person.

Abandon the sporting calendar.

Take a few months out and see how it goes then start again.

I know the first to moan will be the Torbetts but their chase for the tainted 10 is irrelevant in the big picture.

They can cry all they want but it would be the ultimate justice for them.
