    I agree not sure the courts would if it went that far, if there was 3 or 4 other clubs fighting the same fight I would be more hopeful

    Why should we prop up the rest of Scottish football.? Get SKY to * and their moronic hun "analysts". The *, The Hun and their so called "journalists" should be banned from from our club. No interviews, banned from press conferences. We don't want and don't need them. GET THEM ALL TO *.

    Quite right.

    The club should insist this ban remains until the source of the translation is named. If Sky don't know who it was then they will understand why the club cannot allow them access to players and coaches. If they know and don't want to name him (or her) then the ban is really of their own making and they have no grounds for complaint.

    Just wish the club would take this stance with every media outlet that makes up stories, publishes articles with no writers name ( that is the big one for me ) and just to make it even better.. do not grant any media access to those who fail to call out the regular racist chants by the hun support. By call it out i don't mean the whataboutery or 'bad language' type comments. Call it what it is .. RACIST CHANTS.

    We need to remember this would only come about if the existing deal is ended. Or we/the league/clubs decide to not enter into any new deal and do it ourselves (cost and infrastructure would be a problem then as well as experience). Or, if they do enter into a new deal, then the new broadcaster will be aware that we are marketing/broadcasting our games, which would have a negative impact on both the viewing figures they will get, reducing advertising revenue, which would see them reduce/offer less money to broadcast Scottish games - this shortfall is something that the league/Clubs will expect us to make up, in any deal they reach with us which allows us to broadcast our games v them individually.
    So there is absolutely no way we would be able to keep all of the money raised.

    I'm also not sure if 20 quid would be sufficient to cover the costs/liabilities we would have, should this happen, and the higher the monthly subscription cost the more chance that folk will look to bump us. Even at 20 quid there would be a percentage prepared to do that imo.

    Sky sports put all their money into the English game and have been complacent with the Scottish coverage. They were lucky when Setanta collapsed and were able to underfund the league for another decade. In the last ten years the gap in revenue between the lower leagues in England has widened significantly. Once again the spfl have sold out to them when BT clearly had the better coverage and promotion of the game. We're stuck with Sky. Might as well use this as an opportunity to tell them their coverage is so bad. From the basic camera angles. The half time analysis, The pundits, the camera angles are rubbish. The kick off times are rubbish as well. Could go on and on. We don't help ourself though. A monkey could fix the problems overnight that were crying out for. Cheap tickets. Full stands. Grass pitches in the top flight. Bit of money spend on the stadiums.

    Get into the * with all the legal high flyers we can muster.
    They must be shown they can’t besmirch OUR CLUB whenever they like.

    Sue them to * for liable, slander and whatever else comes under that banner.
    * Sky, and their hun pundits, as has been mentioned previously!!!

    Phil hinting that a few careers in front and behind the camera may be over.

    Hope he is referring to that hun * Boyd as Celtic have provided them with examples when they
    Feel they have been unfairly treated.
    Boyd's rant about Griff comes to mind.
