ALLYJAMBONOVEMBER 3, 2017 at 19:03 ANDRAKNOVEMBER 3, 2017 at 15:27Allyjambo, I might agree with your point that gate sharing won’t resolve the problem and maybe isn’t even a critical change in the grand scheme of things. If it is right, I think it is because there may be other more innovative ways of redistributing the wealth in the game. I really like what Corrupt Official said earlier about a membership tax, based on (effectively) ability to pay – hope I’m not misquoting you, CO.
   No misquotes Ally. It wouldn’t have to be a crippling “tax” with circa 200K plus, in attendance weekly, paying around £20 a pop. 1% would only raise around £40K per match-day, but over the course of a season soon accumulate. Similar to my auld grannies menage, but with higher attendance clubs receiving less back than they deposit, and lower attending clubs returning more than they deposit. 
   Nuts and bolts could be added, such as minimum attendance figure cut-offs for membership, because lets be honest. Too many Scottish clubs are as good as they are ever going to, or want to be. 
   That is not intended as a slur on them, as they are what they want to be. Who am I to argue with that. The fact is they do not need more money to be that.
   Its a case of if you can’t beat them, join them… Be professional.
   Throwing money at amateurs, no matter how well intended they may be, will not make them that. 
    In actual fact, it may be a hindrance to them ever acting professionally. 
   This would not be a cure-all, for our country’s woes, but I believe a whole raft of measures need to be undertaken in a planned, and phased development programme, including mergers and ground shares. Not to mention a definitive criteria of what professional actually constitutes.
    At the moment, it seems to consist only of, “Been around for ages”. 
    But first, we need an association we can trust to deliver, and can deliver trust.

   “The club” can never be defined by SFA membership…The club existed before the existence of the SFA. The SFA may very well have granted another club a membership, as a vacancy had arisen, but it was still granted to another club. 
   It could easily have been the wheeltappers and shunters, or Club biscuits, but in this case it was Sevco Scotland. 
   As everyone but bare-faced liars know, a few days later Sevco Scotland changed their name. D’Oh

As things stand I don’t know why they don’t just give Murty the job. Perhaps if he wins the next two games that will give them the reason they need to do so.
   I imagine he is on the fitba equivalent of a zero hours contract at the moment. Real contracts cost money.  It would be a good time for Murty to negotiate his position….Before a season ticket salesman rears his head.

Enough is enough
  The say nothing statement, actually says quite a bit. Especially the “viable options” bit. I wonder if anyone will be door-stepped to determine where the “viable” and “unviable” border sits.
   Surely they have a checklist of “viability” criteria they need to adhere to. Compo, Transfer  funds, earnings expectations, etc. 
   It could save some potential “applicants” a wee bit of wasted time.

I hope the pathways in the approaches to CP are well salted tomorrow.  I read a few weeks ago that the pavements were very icy and dangerous on the way to the ground
    I think it is covered in the criteria by which a match can take place Jimbo, but I imagine restricted to the actual property boundaries.

So the SPFL have come out and said we can’t afford goal line technology.
    How much would a phone selotaped to the goalposts really cost?….OK the pinhole camera securely sited in the post or bar, but it shouldn’t run to mega bucks. 
    Interesting reading this past wee while. I wish you all a very happy and healthy new year. 

Who Is Conning Whom?
    Would it have been less embarrassing for the Sevco statement to merely have iterated. “Sorry, but we’re skint!”

Who Is Conning Whom?
DBD….Don’t you want to discover who killed your club and how?. (Because the simple fact you dismiss, is that Yes!..It did die !) Don’t you want to know who assisted them, have them exposed, and removed from office, or prosecuted if warranted?. Don’t you want rules, and governance to prevent it happening again?
   No need for a glass door to see some folk coming.

Who Is Conning Whom?
   I hear Sevco will be sending out a strong message at the AGM
