    Negative Reputation

    negativity towards another poster is based on a number of factors (as per dafc.net) dislike of poster! having different opinions! Being anti SNP! Being knowledgeable! Calling out the the established incumbents! PS posting long links doesn't help either!

    Opinion 2

    It comes down to if clubs have the finances to put on games and what testing measures will need to be adopted. I think every club will know what income streams fund which part of their day to day running costs, sponsorship, advertising, turnstile income, hospitality, programme sales, 50/50, catering/wet sales. Against wages, match day outlay, rent, rates, vat, paye, maintenance, accommodation, vehicles, kit, specialist services etc

    Opinion

    Stenhousemuir Chairman saying this morning he knows clubs without the cash to make it to Christmas, they have enough but if testing was enforced on clubs then it would have a greater impact on finances and with no additional income that would drive them out business sooner. I'm not sure what the lesser of the 2 evils are start a season and go bust or mothball a club for a season and return with the revenue of fans at the club. That must be the dilemma and the stark reality that many clubs could be faced with.

    Gents. Just wanting to pick your brains on your Italian heritage. We are heading to Sorrento next week with the family, I'm not sure if this is an area you are familiar with but if you can suggest anything to do or to avoid? We are there for 10 days so plenty of time. We are certainly going to to head to Pompeii and Capri. Anything else which is unmissable and any food recommendations would be warmly welcome. TIA. Andy

    Ethos of the club

    Interesting!

    The club sold - German consortium

    My tuppenth's worth. I'm prepared to corrected on any point. To my knowledge we don't have a multi millionaire owner. We have a directorship made up of local successful businessmen who invest their hard earned profits in the club. They have also had to put in additional interest free loans to cover the sacking of AJ. We are now 6 months into a global pandemic where the club has received very little income but maintained wages to staff. The idea of this changing in the near future is unlikely. So anyone thinking the board is not acting thinking for the future of the club, need to have a think. The biggest fear I've had in the last 3 months is the club running out of money and going bust a fear felt by many other supporters up and down the land about their clubs. So we then have a group wishing to invest and take over the club with an option to buy the stadium. Why? It doesn't make any sense. No rhyme or reason look at it in from any direction. No explanation something doesn't stack up. But what I am positive of is that we were heading in the wrong direction when you are relying on businessmen who's businesses have been effected by the virus to keep the club afloat. The timing has been financially perfect. The outcome is we still have DAFC for the time being. The future after looking back at Hearts, Raith, Celtic, Dundee could be a roller coaster. But all 4 clubs are in existence. However I would love to hope this is the start of fantastic period for the club!

    Drinks break.

    so hydration during sport is not important and eliminating cross contamination isn't important? These rules have been agreed as part of the regimen to allow football to get started and folk on here think it's a nonsense. In the current climate who would go into a room and drink from a bottle shared between 22 people? In fact who would drink from a random beer bottle in a pub in normal circumstances? Question for anyone if you were in a gym for 90 minutes and were thirsty would you share a water bottle with another 21 users?

    New Covid sanctions

    This is a bitter pill to swallow unless retrospective punishment is handed out to both Aberdeen and Celtic. the fact they have cancelled the winter break to accommodate the fixture congestion would indicate not!

    Wonder why its only 7 days for Celtic! We all know the incubation is 14 days and the tests are only effective when you start showing symptoms? The whole team and Kilmarnock should be isolating for 14 days he actually played on Sunday. UEFA Champions League maybe...........

    This was by no means a team night out as has been portrayed and while we attempted to comply with Government social distancing guidelines, we now recognise that our group of 8 exceeded the number of households permitted to meet up. This was a genuine error on our part as professional football players, and in doing so, we have let our manager down. According to Sportsound many players at different clubs have only been told to adhere to Government Guidelines away from the club, the players in their apology have admitted to breaching the number of households permitted. Social distancing in Bars etc is 1 metre so if you are an arms length apart you are complying. Not always possible admittedly. How it matters in a pub I have no idea when you have people from any amount of households in a pub, and I think it can easily be misconstrued into thinking that refers to in your own home. I see no difference in going out on your own and meeting 9 different people during the course of the night and having a 10 minute conversation with each. These are the rules that were put in place by the Government. However I still stand by the fact they are young men who are now being tormented and abused by the majority of Scotland for doing what many young people were also doing and they have been made scapegoats almost for the whole Aberdeen situation and the potential for ending Scottish football. We have heard enough of supporting footballers mental health and the demons they deal with anyway. To hang them out the way they have is not helpful. I honestly hope no harm comes to any of them from others or from themselves because the abuse they receiving now is almost at the same level as paedophiles receive.

    Just like Dunfermline have houses for players how do we know what the living arrangements for the Aberdeen players are?

    he has not been named and shamed all over social media and a government briefing! What unusual times or are you referring to May? We are now in August pubs and hospitality are open. Playing football tested twice a week doesn't mean 23 people are on that park are covid free! As for pandemic I've had it it was awful, compared with the wife who had flu 9 years ago similar, before you look at confirmed cases look at hospital admissions, no-one currently testing positive is going to hospital, they are suffering mild symptoms equivalent to a heavy cold at worst. Covid will kill people agreed, but the vast majority I hate to say it will be living on borrowed time or have undetected underlying health conditions, like those who drop dead on a football pitch or in a marathon only to find out during a post mortem that they had heart or lung conditions undetected. At no point has any hospital been overwhelmed in Scotland and the vast majority expected to recover have. Coronavirus is the common cold (with a sting attached)little bit like anaphylactic shock following a wasps sting) it spreads easily and have never found a vaccine, the flu is a virus despite finding a vaccine thousands still die every year,. Covid will eventually fall into that bracket. It will prey on the weak, obese, elderly, sick. In Scotland no-one under the age of 15 has died and under 30 I think the figure was 3.

    and if the idiot who was told (having travelled on public transport from another country) had self isolated as told to do so and gone for the test would this outbreak even have happened? The Aberdeen players have been scapegoated on a situation out with their control! Young men have behaved in a similar fashion every week all were asymptomatic when tested as most cases will be. I struggle to think of any person young or old who is going to sign up to an employment contract that will deny them of a social life in the terms of their contract of employment outwith their place of work!
