    I wonder what the reasoning is behind suspending games in L1 and 2 and not the Championship??

    Is it because Budge and co are playing in that league?

    I suspect there will be call offís in the Championship before long! With them only 10 games in, is there really any point in continuing??

    They are getting £500k each in payouts, lower leagues £150k
    Testing costing £40k per month, no idea how accurate that figure is

    The SPFL needs to rearrange the fixture lists for the three lower divisions so that each team has faced all of the others home and away once before the end of May, with each division then being declared completed and no third round of fixtures being played.

    If that can't happen before then, players will be out of contract and the lower three leagues will need to be declared null and void with no promotion or no relegation.

    Anything else would beggar belief.

    Thus shafting the lowland and highland league teams out of yet another season of promotion. No thank you!

    My comment was aimed elsewhere

    But being honest I was surprised at just how many leagues in Scotland were allowed to play until the suspension was announced. Can't see the sense in it when they're not allowed spectators.

    So Raith have been told they may have to forfeit their game against ICT at the weekend. Covid outbreak and they donít have enough players.

    Yet Aberdeen and Celtic get games postponed following players out on the piss and travelling abroad!

    If Raith has done done everything possible to prevent this then why are they being punished?

    I don't think they have. It's their chairman who's saying that that's what will happen if the SPFL don't agree to postpone their match.

    Null & Void?

    As hibs fans we're naturally programmed to find this hilarious (should it happen) due to our born despise of Rangers. BUT, I personally think it would be an absolute disgrace if it happened. The fact that it wouldn't come as a shock to most in the Scottish game / the fans, highlights how broken our management of the game is. Change is needed now (or maybe after this one final sh*t show... just so we can LOL at Rangers yet again )

    Raith could ask for their fixture to be rescheduled so that they can fulfil their fixture couldn't they? This does not need their opposition to be consulted.
    Asking for a postponement, reschedule due to covid is a club acting responsibly.

    The health and safety of employees is what is important. These are exceptional times and the SPFL need a reality check. Rather than pissing off their members with points deductions they should be trying their best to help the clubs. Rules and laws can be changed and amended.

    I think that £40,000 is for the rest of the season... Roughly £75 a test. Most Championship squads will be significantly smaller than Hearts'.

    How can the SPFL/SFA cancel leagues 1+2 then the Scottish Cup for 3 weeks, and allow Celtic to take a trip to Dubia to train???
    For these reasons alone they both need dumped and a new hierarchy put in place!!
    If football ends up with a red card from the SG, its because of their inept rulings and guidance!!!

    I am sure that Celtic fans will be hoping that over 75% of fixtures are not completed. Wonder if there is a percentage of games that need to be completed before they can finish the season. If it was "null and void" Hearts would not be promoted.😂😂😂😂😂

    There is no plan. The SPFL Board suggested one, but that was rejected by the clubs. The clubs haven't come up with an alternative.

    I knew that but I think now is the time for clubs to come up with one. In the event of the ending of the season early my feeling is that as long as each club has played each other home and away that would be fair. Don't know if there any other precedents set in war time?

    My recollection is that their "plan" was only to empower the board to make a decision if required, rather than a proper proposal detailing what would happen in particular eventualities.

    Thatís correct, it was to put any decision in the hands of the board rather than the clubs. When that was rejected the clubs should have been put round the table to discuss all potential outcomes, both through the season and at the season end (for example protocol breaches, postponed games, and how to define the season should it be cut short), instead of doing that, Doncaster took the huff and started moaning about the clubs not giving him the power.
