Check back on here to last October, think you’ll find that Dundee United’s and just about everyone else’s reservations about the haste to announce venues was extensively discussed

There are glory hunters in every support, and its reasonable to assume that successful teams will have a higher proportion

However, I suspect the vast majority of supporters from all sides would be enthused by a league that offered hard fought, close games week in week out, and, would relish the excitement and trepidation of seasons going down to the wire.

Such a prospect would make the cost of attending matches good value for money

Perfectly respectable point of view. However, I suspect things like Armed Forces Day are here to stay. A lot of people in the military love their football, they do not by any means all support Rangers. So if there is going to be some sort of Armed Forces Day, then why not make it inclusive rather than exclusive?
Personally, I think the SFA saying to the military, if service personnel turn up on Cup Final Day in uniform we’ll let them in free, is a much better way for football as whole to mark an “Armed Forces Day”, rather than the perennial PR car crash waiting to happen at Ibrox.
I bet, (know) a lot of serving military types would be quietly delighted to see and an end to the purely Rangers day.
YMMV

Tried to add:
How about the SFA holding an Armed Forces Day as part of Scottish Cup Final? A bit like the Lawn Tennis Association does at Wimbledon, thereby detoxifying the whole issue?

Possibly, do they use temporary seating for Forces day?
