  1. Dunno mate and if the broadcasters are happy to step back then it might be possible. There might be a concern that if the link is broken though. As a fat dum and happy fan, its not going to make that much difference to me, the clubs might have the fear though. Not trying to put obstacles in the way, its just that there's a general assumption that those running clubs are idiots, while I'm not saying they get it all right, they maybe get it more right for them than we realise. There's still a lot of 'oohs and ahs' in this still to play out.
  2. Where do Sky/BT/BBC Scotland channel fit in with this mate, not sure how long the contracts have to run but as they've been a large (I know, I know) provider of cash to the leagues for a number of years and no doubt will in the future. Are they to step aside ? Would they bother coming back ?
  3. You've put me in the unenviable position of sticking up for Doncaster here but it will be the SPL chairmen who decide this, Doncaster might try and influence them of course.
  4. I'll worry about it if and when FPS start losing their sh1t over it myself.
  5. Imagine if this is the year we win a Cup but can't get to Hampden to enjoy it..... ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  6. Its possible the clubs know the rough numbers of who is up for playing so are starting to push to make things happen.
  7. It was a cracking couple of days for us, we were staying with Dee pals who looked after us and the night itself was fantastic. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
  8. Well the elbow seems to be made of the same stuff as bawbags so I guess so......
  9. Or hit the gym and make bigger spaces. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. Really ? Each to their own and while I enjoy watching pretty much any football, I didn't think the English 5th tier was much cop. The first time my missus watched it she was pretty shocked (she's no expert and only familiar with how Dundee are doing) and asked if we were just watching a particularly crap match. I found it falls away quite quickly after the Championship although I've not watched live English games in about 8 years so it might have changed.
  11. The highlighted bit makes sense to me, if clubs are aware of this possibility then its on them to make sure they're not at the bottom etc. Although it might be a bit crappy 3 games in...... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  12. We can all be guilty of it, you have an idea in your head and try and put it down reasonably briefly and you read it back and realise you've sort of skipped chunks of what you were trying to say or it wasn't what you quite meant.
  13. Great post, can't argue with much of that although I do see it slightly differently.
  14. If we could get a decent second tier going and encourage either/and BBC and STV to put money in, then we might get a half decent product. Most fans want enlarged leagues so why not start with the second tier and push it. I would guess Sky and BT wouldn't be that bothered but if we could give the terrestrial broadcasters a worthwhile product then there might be more cash than what currently trickles down. It would make things a bit awkward with the split of the rest of the TV money but as the Beeb (Scotland) is showing friday night games already, maybe not insurmountable. I'd add a few more caveats to your proposition though Cobes, Falkirk might pip us to the post. ๐Ÿ˜ž
  15. It would also save Partick and Stranraer, the only clubs 'seen off' would be the one potentially coming up from the lower leagues. Its not a perfect solution but if it was a step towards a further look at things, even an enlarged second tier to the 16/18 clubs a lot of us want then maybe the best of a bad situation.
