I think it should be cancelled although I donít think it will be. Knowing the powers in our game weíll be playing 2 games a day to squeeze it in.
I wouldn't be bothered if they just scrapped it this season. With the lower leagues showing no signs of resuming you can't expect teams who haven't played in weeks to take part. Any sort of abridged tournament (ie without the lower league teams) would need an asterisk against it to show that not all teams were involved.
Scrapping it would also ensure we don't run the risk of the meltdowns on here following our two semi-final exits so far this season
Reading between the lines I think only the top two leagues with conclude to a finish. Everything else will be scrapped.
Looking at the Scottish Cup and the teams left - the remaining teams could be tested and play games.
I canít see the lower leagues like Lowland league and womenís leagues going back anytime soon. They wonít risk it and the travel. Folk are kicking off on the Scottish FA Twitter but training is one thing - games has several risks like travel.
Going to be fun watching the fallout as teams throw toys out the pram about promotion and relegation - it was obvious this season was going to be a challenge and many teams are lucky so many games have actually taken place before they were made to stop.
Thereís no way they can finish league one and two. Some have 19 games to go and a few 18. Also it will be 10/11 weeks with no games for these teams. The only solution I can see is to call the leagues after 18 games when they have all played each other home and away. Whether they will agree on it is another matter.
So you'd gladly risk endangering masses to watch a game of football?

Spare us the sanctimonious crap - get enough of that off the idiot box every night to last me a life time.
To respond to your ill thought-out question - the thread has nothing to do with the return of crowds to football - it's about whether the Scottish Cup should be completed this season and yes, I'd like to see that happen.
Pensioners and others at a high risk of suffering badly from COVID could be told to steer well clear of the grounds and team buses to keep you and your ilk from bumping your gums too much about it.
Iím sure realistically the cup will carry on to next season. There is not enough time. I would have thought 18 games would be the solution for the bottom two leagues but if mcinally represents the majority view the scrapping it is the only outcome. Surely after what happened at the end of last season they are all discussing the ending of the season for them. Loads of lower league teams have at least 17/18 games to go with at best ten weeks to play them plus the backlog of cup fixtures before we even get to us coming into it. Calling the league and postponing the Scottish cup seems the only logical thing to do.
