Threat to supporters in stadia.

Recommended Posts

Should have lifted restrictions from Friday, so some clubs could've got a wee financial lift  re bigger crowds.

It's a legitimate concern as well, along with every other societal issue we need to concern ourselves with, which some of it might just not be getting the attention it deserves due to the huge concentration on Covid-19. Difficult to manage none the less.

The lower leagues weren't threatening to play their games in England were they! So no F's given.

Still no breaks for hospitality though!

No restrictions for supporters buses or in the grounds but theatres, cinemas and restaurants have to run at 1/5th capacity making them unviable.

52 folk in a coach for 2 hours fine singing, chanting and chatting,

6 people from 3 households 2 metres apart from the next table eating in a restaurant fine. Madness!

Sturgeon should have lifted restrictions for this weekends games… why Monday? 
Some of her decisions are crazy but hey ho we must comply.

Could we not move the Pars game to Monday night? Maybe offer Accies a cut of the gate if they agree?

Theres an idea.

That’s to much forward thinking as they just made their mind up to get 500 in for the game!

To be fair, they only found out today about the change to the rules from Monday onwards, until that was announced, planning for 500 was the best they could do.

I’m fed up with it all, rules being switched on and off like a tap when they make no sense when other parts of the UK are doing different things and some of the stuff they come out with just sounds made up.

They just need to be seen to be doing something and treating it seriously, this is getting more political by the day rather than on public health.

Its all gone on too long now, my grandfathers health has deteriorated so much in these last two years and it’s hard not to blame it on all of this. Been stuck in the house hardly moving over the fear put on him over this virus and the uncertainty as to what he can and can’t do.

All these lockdowns and restrictions have been put in place to protect us from covid but it is doing more harm than they think and care to acknowledge.

As for the Hamilton game, I bloody forgot and was sold out by the time I looked this afternoon. Might be a blessing in disguise I suppose as I can switch a stream off easily enough!

Moving to Monday would be a smart idea but wouldn’t happen, Accies hardly bring any fans anyway, we wouldn’t split the gate and the 500 probably benefits them more.

Nice to see the restrictions just being lifted though, just in time for the Celtic Hibs game, funny that, farcical.

Other parts of the UK are doing different things based on their data. The Scottish Govt seem to be more cautious than Johnson & co down London way - although there is an argument that one administration cares more about the overall health of the citizens than others.

As for lifting the restrictions, they're never going to change things with immediate effect - there's always going to be a few days so that organisations can adjust. I'm guessing the decision to change on Monday is more to do with it being at the start of the week rather than to accommodate Hibs v Celtic.

It was farcical the restrictions were implemented in the first place but there was always going to be a set date to lift them that wouldn’t please everyone. If the lifting of restrictions had moved to Saturday to suit football clubs you’d rightly have nightclub owners or music venues asking “well if they’re being lifted early for football why can’t you lift them on Friday instead etc etc”. Football fans seem to forgot it wasn’t the only industry to suffer.
