He wants the go ahead for more corruption so this time they can say it was decided by the clubs he wants the green signal to match his green bias.

They have already been knocked back before the season started - this is them trying to take the power away from the clubs and have some sort of guidelines/hard rules in place that have to be followed.
pretty sure the season had already started when they tried last time.
They asked for the power to make the decisions as and when things happened iirc, there wasn't a definitive plan of if A happens, the response is B, C or D...

All we need to do is keep our noses in front. Nothing else matters if we can do that.
It’s not as simple as that. Lawwell will say that, as they haven’t played all teams home and away, the remaining games should be based on average points from LAST SEASON. Just watch the other clubs respond with, ‘great idea’. We need to build a big gap, so that this won’t make a difference.

I'd rather lose the title played to completion than be given it early, them being gifted it is embarrassing.
When we win 55 it must be with all games played to completion.
The difference between then and now is they made it up as they went along. If there’s credible contingency plans in place that the clubs agree with then I don’t see too much of an issue, as we would already know what might happen. I’d say the chances of a contingency plan being implemented are slim now. So unlikely to be needed.

If it's stopped before the halfway mark it will be declared null and void. Absolute stick-on.
I read on one of their boards that 70% of the season has to be played before it is n & v. How true thus is, or whether it is next weeks SPFL decision, I just don’t know

I must've missed the memo where someone's opinion on a forum was the measurement of intellect. Nothing stupid about it, I want the title won not given, that's my view on it. Thanks for your reply though.
I’m not questioning your intellect.
Just your opinion.

Watch the words 'Nul & Void' suddenly stop being dirty and start becoming common place, at first through a few media placemen and then picked up by every tim with a keyboard. The gnash against it last season will be gone.

And the thing is, nul & void is probably correct. A competition that hasn't been completed has no integrity. I'm not a hypocrite and I stand by that regardless. The problem is that you cannot take the opposite approach one season and not the next, and now that a full round of games has been completed any argument that could have been for it has gone. If there is any kind of wriggling to get the season binned I would hope Rangers are prepared, and prepared to go nuclear.

Then let's win 55 in a year's time.
And stop 10 this year with it gift wrapped in a 3 sided, incomplete box.

I have a feeling your correct, especially since we are now atop of the league. If we continue to be leading then I suspect you will be correct. It’s whatever mechanism the SPFL try to adopt or even manufacture to get through the real club they want to win. After all, every ounce of pressure they got from their lobbyists such as the tarriers, and their buddies worked a treat and the SPFL duly obliged to deliver the most tainted title in the history of sport.

Integrity will be the watchword, but as we all know fine well, it just doesn’t exsist in this set up.

With one round of fixtures completed they have a measure for which an early call can be made and after last season we have a strong argument is in place to challenge any other out come.

The challenge now is to play every game like it’s your last. Every 3 points is another step closer to the end goal but it also puts greater pressure on those in power as the only option can be to award to us in such circumstances.

I still can't get my head round why we voted yes, and gifted them last seasons corona virus league title.
Is this still getting peddled? We didn’t vote to award them the league title and relegate Hearts, despite the shite in the media. Both ourselves and Hearts voted against. Confirmed by the SLO on this Board, with absolute certainty.

1. Rangers.. 2.64 PPG.
2. Celtc....... 2.50 PPG.

Call it now.
On the BBC Sportsound show last night, when they were talking about the meeting and the new powers being sought, Craig Levein said " I just wonder if they will call the league again". "They will have to wait until everybody is in the right positions before they call it".

Dont want it awarded. Would rather lose it fairly with all games played.
55 should be the biggest celebration in a generation for us. I think we would be robbed of this if the season is called and we are awarded the title in a boardroom meeting.

Surely scrapping this seasons league cup and Scottish cup would be the first measures if there was a real possibility all league fixtures couldn’t be completed before the end of the season.

Attempting to end the season early needs to be robustly challenged every step of the way.

I think the difference is if we were awarded it, we might not even count it as 55 (like we don’t count war titles), but it would confirm to them that they didn’t get their 9.75 (or whatever decimal it would then be) in a row. Can’t imagine Gerrard and the management team sitting there giving the same kind of press conference as Lennon saying how great an achievement it was.

Listen fellow bears and bearettes, we must win 55 this year and yes by any means available, anything else is unthinkable. Make no mistake, the cabal are as bent as a spiral staircase and guaranteed they will have a devious move or two up their sleeve.

Off topic a bit here, on bbc hoots mon this morn, they had charlie Adam and Craig Levein empathising with filth fc about the mole in the camp (more excuses for the humping).
Charlie actually mentioned about Dundee having sporting integrity, i nearly spat out my rice krispies.
Honestly some people.

Thats my point exactly - we win titles on the park not over a Zoom meeting.

We just need to crack on with our own business. Keep winning and they can't catch us, regardless of when the call the season.

Will be interesting to see how the voting goes if we are on top at the time though!

Why is this even an issue? Why would the league be called? Because a few St Mirren players are isolating? Last season this virus caught us all on the hop, totally different set of circumstances now. Zero need to abandon leagues. Mass hysteria on here I think.

There was zero need or justification to ‘abandon’ the league last season (see almost every other European league that played to completion) yet that still happened and titles were awarded and relegations confirmed. We are not dealing with common sense when it comes to the running of the Scottish game.

Not sure n&v will be viable as remember tge reason this wasnt an option last season was tv money. SPFL are already running on empty and n&v could finish them.
Not sure about 70% of games having to be played as that wad the while reason for last season's debacle...they had no plan or rules for anything like this.
Not a lawyer but last season with ppg deciding on winners and losers, remember thistle went down by 2 points with a game in hand, I'd imagine that is a precedent that could and would be argued in court

I don’t think it will happen as Scottish football will never survive another long term shutdown but if it did after what happened in 2008,2012 and 2020 we should have no qualms about the title being awarded particularly as we are the best side in the league. It would give the rest of the SPFL a taste of their own medicine for a change.

The precedent was set last season by all the clubs including ourselves and the yahoos.

Of course we all want to win it on the park but a far easier route to champions league football and title 55 can’t be turned down if that unlikely scenario happens.

They will say any league could not be awarded to us without a clear, sizeable gap after c.30 games. Remember their “13 point gap” last season was before we had a game in hand and two old firms (which on current and last season derby form we probably win). That was potentially a 4 point gap with 6 other games remaining.

I would much rather win it on the park, and might not even count any awarded title unless we were mathematically certain but if there is literally no other option to finish the fixtures we cannot just let it be null and void (After what happened last season) if we are leading the pack.

So they are confirming that the administration of the professional game in Scotland is run by amateurs who cannot consider making a call on this before the season was started.

Its not like they had an idea it could happen or had any form of precedent .....

Clownboots - the lot of them
They can’t mate , as they have to see how it pans out , to adapt rules to suit the tarriers . And they aren’t amateurs , they are totally professional when it comes to cheating .

They should agree that the league can be called after two rounds of matches. ie. all completed home and away. we should not be allowed to play any 3rd round matches until all 2nd round matches are complete. if we dont make it that far it should be void.

how can you have a scenario where the league is awarded and we have been to parkhead twice? its half or all of it

Think back to project re start in july. Not a single EPL player tested positive, so they completed the season. it seemed the virus was on the wane.
Look at it now- players all over europe are now contracting the disease, along with coaches etc.
Either the virus has mutated and got worse / more potent- or things are getting lax in the 'player bubbles' . The raft of international games are exacerbating the situation.

from the day this season started, i did not think it would be completed. I am almost certain of this now.

To be honest I don't think that would be an unreasonable rule.

It's one that should have been decided before the season started though, when teams would be voting based on the fairness of it rather than in self interest.

How the %^*& they didn't think a contingency plan might be necessary before the league started I'll never understand. Complete incompetence.

It is total madness. "We're in the middle of a global pandemic that's already curtailed the last season, but we're not going to introduce any rules that set out what will happen if it curtails the next season too." Incompetence is too polite.

You can just see the null and void statement in January in order not to make a controversial decision again.


Just remain in front so one of their angles from last season is nullified.

It should have been null and voided then that would have been the sensible move. But not suitable for those dirty cheatin bastards.
