β€˜.Whilst these playoffs are what we have all been crying out for, man alive they are flawed.’

” I agree. And I think, to be fair, most of us feel that there ought to be a more equitable, realistic and workable arrangement. …… In the Scottish footballing world, however, the very concept of sporting fairness let alone any practical expression of the sporting ideal, was abandoned a couple of seasons ago.
One cannot now imagine that they will even understand your complaint, let alone act upon it.”


The SPFL Board are aware of a fairer play-off format! πŸ˜•

Here’s the play-off format details on the SPFL website – http://spfl.co.uk/play-offs/ 😳

So for promotion from the lower divisions the team finishing second bottom of the higher division plays the team finishing 4th from top of the division below in one semi-final. Whilst 2nd play 3rd in the other semi-final.

From yesterday’s results the team from the higher division all won their games, (eventually)

Surprise, surprise there’s a different format for promotion to the SPFL Premiership. 😯

It’s a shame that Big Pink did not ask (or edited out) Turnbull Hutton why the 30 clubs in the 3 lower divisions of the SPFL accepted this when the SPL took over the SFL.

As we know there’s little chance of anyone in the SMSM getting Neil Doncaster to explain the sporting integrity of the current arrangements, and I doubt he’d be willing to acknowledge the unfairness of the current arrangements.

Small Price to Pay?
No discussion of the Takeover Appeal Board Decision on BBC Sportsound, just a short statement from a Rangers supporting sports reporter that I paraphrase as “This is not a problem for Rangers” 

Subsequent discussion on Celtic v Rangers match like a Bobby Madden Appreciation Society.

Now talking about Pedro’s statement / interview. 

You’d never guess that the BBC is banned by The Rangers!
