It hasn't got anything to do with Salty.  But do carry on... 

I will make it through the day and then the day becomes the night, 

will make it through the night.

Right, here goes. Over the course of the weekend, Morton's three pieces of media output (the Christmas video, the match reaction interviews and the video message for the Inverclyde Council virtual switch-on) have over a dozen breaches of COVID protocols as far as I can see. 

Christmas video: 

- Two instances of players touching each other.

- Two instances of players both touching a cracker. 

- Six instances of players breaking social distancing guidelines. 

Match reaction interviews:

- Gerry breaches social distancing guidelines while interviewing both Hopkin and McAdams.

- In the McAdams' interview, he turns away from camera and coughs into his hand. He then takes a bottle of champagne, hands it to McAdams then shakes his hand. 

Virtual switch on video:

- 21 people standing together, breaking social distancing guidelines. 

- After filming the video, we openly publicise the video displaying the breach. 

All this, just after Dundee United and Celtic got hauled over the coals for not adhering to guidelines. You honestly couldn't make it up.

Been discussed over on the TonTV thread (albeit not as extensively). Club (all clubs) really need to think about what they are doing if they want supporters back any time soon.

If we have an outbreak, we are absolutely bang to rights for sanctions.

It's concerning, especially against a backdrop of clubs like St Mirren facing hefty sanctions for breaches that, on the surface anyway, seem far less innocuous than our media output over this weekend. The club really need to get a grip of the situation and quickly. 

You address me by my proper title, you little bollocks!

When Dundee United posted their team photo I asked how stupid can you be... this isn’t any different, I don’t know why we’ve so openly broke the rules

Are you trying to tell me Gerry couldn’t have held the interview socially distanced? Could he really not have stood off camera at a distance

Unbelievably stupid. Just also occurred to me that Gerry and Andy don't sit 2m apart while they're doing the commentary

 Have Morton even got anyone who is supposed to act as a Covid officer?  Such a post is required even at youth level (and there's one for each team as well as one for the club - I was appointed to that role as I had some experience at surviving covid :) ).  I don't think Morton are any worse or any better than any other professional teams in this regard, but professional football seems to be more or less ignoring the rules almost completely.  It's just a matter of time before we have players who catch it.

Dave McKinnon as far as I'm aware.

Stupid aye, but does it need to be publically called out on twitter...

 

Absolutely not 

If it's been on Twitter or Facebook or even on here then someone somewhere will have forwarded it to all relevant and irrelevant authorities.

I get the bit about coughing and then handling the champagne bottle etc, etc, but not the complaints about the players gathering for the council Christmas message.

After all, they are training and playing together every day, so to line up and shout Merry Christmas shouldn't be played up as a "serious" breach of the regulations.

Same with the club's video, these guys are coming into physical contact with each other every day of the week (no doubt while sweating and breathing heavily) just as the customers of Tesco, Morrisons, The Range and every other large store across the country are every day.
