    See they are wanting to start Ligue 1 in mid April.

    Wonder what would happen if we were allowed to go back to the footie in a couple of months but only behind closed doors? Can see a certain team refusing to play...

    Thick huns still looking for prize money handouts from the SPFL and UEFA but don’t think prizes (trophies) should be handed out.

    Why should they hand out prize money and not hand out prizes?

    One should be linked to the other.

    Prize money isn’t going to be handed out in a null and void scenario.

    How can you get prize money for something that didn’t happen?

    Do these thick huns know what “Null and Void” actually means?


    adjective
    without value, effect, consequence, or significance.
    being or amounting to nothing; nil; lacking; nonexistent.
    Mathematics. (of a set)
    1. empty.
    2. of measure zero.
    being or amounting to zero.

    Null and void makes zero sense for every single Scottish club bar the Huns (just because of us).....and even for them it'll severely hurt them..

    Financially it's a disaster across the board..

    Even the diets with their news today would go bust if they don't get a resolution soon and the league stands..

    They go down or it's null and void and they sit with no a penny from the telly, league and owe their season ticket money back out..

    I'm no gonna keep commenting on this as it seems some will lose their * everytime something gets twisted in the media/by a headline. I think most know exactly what will happen if the games don't go ahead..

    If that happened they'd be fined..

    Just award the other side a 3 nil win for anyone who tries to get out of playing matches..

    Would be a straight up forfeit yeah?
    They'd screw themselves before admitting to us we win.

    Their statement this week emphasis that their existance right now is just to stop Celtic.
    It's proved that this entire Gerrard and tens of million spent on 31 players the past two years has simply been to stop us from gettin 9 or 10.
    They are quite literally willing to kill their second club to stop us getting this title.

    Aye they wouldn't get that far. If UEFA call for the game's to go ahead and somehow the crisis clears....they'll be forced to play..

    They will try to be difficult in every scenario that sees us going for the title though...as you've rightly pointed out. We've seen their contradictory statements from board to coaching staff that are laughable..

    Aye, UEFA are looking for £275million, but they’ll just hand out ££ for competitions that in effect didn’t happen if null and void wins out.

    Why the * would they do that?

    No conclusion, no dosh.

    The big advertising and sponsorship ££ is at the quarter final onwards stages of the competitions.

    That isn’t going to happen now.

    So, their projected revenue up to and including finals is going to take a massive hit.

    So, even if they did pay out, it will not be anywhere near the ££ clubs are expecting.

    Thats why I think the whole season will be finished even if it needs to be delayed longer and longer.

    UEFA especially will want to finish the CL and EL as they bring in about £1.5billion in TV and advertising a year for it, if they don't fulfill that they will get sued for by people for their money back.

    Leagues not so much, like I doubt Sky and BT will demand their £billion back from the EPL or but I do think TV companies would want it from UEFA since they aren't really connected to them. Like BT I think will happily sue UEFA for their £350million back for this season if UEFA don't show all the games they were meant to especially as they are contracted with UEFA until 2024, so it would be a lot of money back and they still have the rights for 4 more seasons, either that or UEFA will give them another free season worth £400million.

    How long do they wait though?

    UEFA May have done their sums and decide that a null and void saves them ££ not paying out than paying out at this stage without getting the big ££ at the quarter final to the finals stage.

    Null and void is the worst case scenario. But there isn’t really any ideal scenarios.

    Getting the season finished is the absolute priority when it’s safe to do so. There are a lot of options. Shortening next season is one.

    I didn’t shell out £500 odd to have this season not count/exist, there needs to be some kind of finish.

    For the time being though, health is more important. But when and if things get going again, there needs to be something done.

    Finish the season behind closed doors in a restricted, controlled environment where the health and well-being of players can be protected.

    Yes football is nothing without fans but we are in unchartered waters and this would be a short term fix to bring the current season to a close.

    I’m a season ticket holder and would be fine with missing out on the matches as long as Celtic TV is made accessible.

    BT and Sky would get to cover the games as scheduled which would give clubs revenue.

    if 38 games need to be played this season to declare a winner, then it’ll need to be the same next season.

    They can’t have it both ways.

    Remember they are the ones to coin the term, Club and Company. They tend not to link things when it suits.

    It is such an up in the air situation that who knows really what will happen and when. In an ideal world we will find a way to finish this season and for me if that means playing through July and delaying the start to next season then I am fine with that. International football can take a back seat which would free up a number of weekends next season allowing for a later start to next season maybe cut out the winter breaks if need be as well for next season.

    Huns are now sticklers for the rules.

    I’ve asked a few to cite me the rules that can demote a club from the top division to the bottom one.

    They either clamp up or say that rules were made up to demote them.

    Those pesky set in stone rules again.

    When it comes to the club and company myth, ask them what the club owns and what the company owns.

    Ask them who the committee members of the club are.....President, treasurer, etc.

    If being called a club can avoid liquidation, every * business in the world would call themselves a club.

    Only in wee hun infested Scotland is that retarded * allowed to fly.

    Not if it becomes null and void.

    Null and void means it never happened.

    If it’s null and void then there won’t be a need to shorten next season will there?

    Why would null and void this season make a difference?

    You said in your previous post that it could be shortened next season.
