Maybe member clubs have put him in his place, he works for them and any changes they'll make.

I wouldn't panic over that.:thumbup:

Member clubs were told last year calling the season on ppg was the only option to get their money, why has that changed?

The season isn’t in any danger of being stopped. The only thing that would do it is another massive surge in cases country wide that then ends up with outbreaks within squads. The testing regime and t

Lock this thread before all the conspiracy theorists take over.

Thread has run its course I think.  It was baseless clickbait and doesn’t need the oxygen of publicity.

The 75% rule is a myth 

Hamilton owner Ronnie MacDonald has suggested that within the rules there is a stipulation that once 75 per cent of games are played, the body can declare the season over.

He told the Sun : “Once 75 per cent of the games have been played, the SPFL’s own rules say they can declare the season completed.

“If the league’s declared finished, as opposed to null and void, the SPFL would be able to pay out prize money based on the league positions at that time.

“Of course, it isn’t ideal. But in case people haven’t noticed, we’re not living in ideal times."

Having looked in detail at the document and talked to sources within the SPFL, Record Sport can confirm there is no such rule.

The 75% mentioned was simply a point made that more than 75% of the games had been played.  There is no mention of any rule stating that 75% of games have to be played.  Certain people have simply mistaken a comment as rule.

When have rules ever mattered to them? He brought that point up by the looks of it.

Agreed. My point was that there is no  75% rule anyway.

If they do declare there is to be no more football, which I doubt will happen, then Rsngers should declare they are willing to forfeit our next 6 games. That would take us to 29 games, over 75%, and give us 65 points from 29 games or a PPG of 2.24. Tarriers are currently at 2.20.

Because they now know the truth even if they didn't vote for the inquiry.

Agree SH, you have been on the mark with your analysis of what has unfolded over the last few days/weeks. 

Just could not resist, combination of uforia and drink regarding their collapse... Mostly drink with a big grin on my face.

Who gets the  Eupropean places with a null and void? What happens to the prize money. Is their relegation or promotion? 
 

Can’t see null and void ever being voted in if it means the SPFL would need to refund Sky and lower the prize amounts.

if they want to call it early on PPG go ahead.

There's no way this should come to N&V, things are improving with the roll out of the vaccine and infection rates coming down, we also didn't have a winter break this season, so if they wanted to pause the season for a couple of weeks or so to see if things improved, then there's no way that the season could not be completed, another sensationalist load of shite from that cunt Jackson.

For the record, the current PointsPerGame situation is this:

Rangers have 65 points from 23 games, a PPG of 2.826

Scum have 44 points from 20 games, a PPG of 2.2.

If they win every game for the rest of the season (purely a theoretical exercise because if all games are played, then PPG becomes redundant), the absolute best PPG they could achieve would be 2.57, less than where we are now.

Even defeat in our next two games (pretty unlikely) would still have us on 2.6, marginally ahead of their absolute maximum.

What this tells us is that, with just over 60% of our fixtures played, it is virtually impossible for the deciding measurement used last year (PPG) to favour the scum if used again this year.

The only way this title can be stolen from us is abandoning the season, already deemed so unthinkable that it wasn’t even offered as an option to the clubs last season.

There is no 75% rule, N&V is not an option for all the reasons trotted out last year so, as long as we keep doing exactly what we’ve been doing, there is no legal means that we won’t be champions.

The article

Neil Doncaster has refused to rule out declaring the season ‘null and void’ if coronavirus restrictions grind the Scottish game back to a halt.

The SPFL chief executive dropped the bombshell admission during an exclusive Q&A with Record Sport as he fronted up the mayhem that’s been caused by Celtic’s controversial winter trip to Dubai.

Doncaster dismissed calls to scratch last season from the record books without awarding titles and promotion as ‘never a realistic possibility’.

The campaign ended in chaos with Celtic crowned top flight champions and Hearts being relegated despite the campaign being curtailed by the coronavirus crisis.

Now, with Rangers sitting 21 points clear at the top of the table and on the verge of claiming a first title in 10 years, Doncaster has refused to rule out the null and void option.

Asked why he was so firm in his refusal to hit the nuclear button last year but appears less strong this time around, the Hampden boss said: “No one has a crystal ball but certainly if we carry on as we are then we’ve got a very good chance of completing the Premiership and Championship seasons.

Lampard defends footballers in COVID celebrations row

"If the games can’t be completed and we end up where we were in March 2020 then clearly it’s going to be a very difficult situation.

“You’ve got to bear in mind over 75 per cent of games had been played in all four divisions of the SPFL when the season was curtailed.

"We certainly hope we will complete 100 per cent of the fixtures in all four divisions this season. It will be for the members to determine what happens in the event they are not.

“In the event the games couldn’t be played, then once again the members might have a decision to make.

“I’ve never ruled out anything. It’s up to the members to rule things in or out.

Hampden Park (Image: SNS Group)

"We are a members organisation and the members want to retain the power to decide whether the season should be curtailed or not rather than give it to the board.

“The consequences of a void season are much more dramatic, partly because of the commercial contracts which underpin the game but at the moment there is no reason to believe the Premiership and Championship won’t be completed.”

We knew this was coming from our media friends, I thought they might have waited until after a defeat to Livi before printing it though :sarcasm:

Null and Void the league then Scottish Football is definitely 100% dead. Season ticket money, Sky deals, merchandise, everything would take a massive hit as fans would turn their back on the blatantly corrupt, rigged game for good.  

To try a stunt like that in such a divided city/country during such difficult times and such an important season will cause utter carnage.  There would be massive implications for the country well beyond any football ground and their football association.  I’m sure you do not need me to go into detail here as you will know what I’m talking about, those implications on top of a Covid crisis and God help everyone.

The journalists who are pedalling this to clearly wind up people and cause trouble during extremely difficult times are dangerous and irresponsible and must be taken to task.

I agree with what you are saying dude....is the only fear that they put null & void on the table as an option.....surely that would muddy the waters ever so slightly....even more so if somehow clubs were to receive payouts on an even keel?
