Don't disagree. SPFL looking a bit stupid right now with their appeals to the Scottish Government and insisting that clubs have 'followed protocols to the letter'.

Dundee Utd and Celtic being shown up about it over the weekend. Clubs need to have a think about what they are putting out there.

Speaking of which...

If you're going to breach protocols to appear in the council's Christmas video, don't be stupid enough to draw attention to it by tweeting a still image when no one would have been sitting through that pish to catch you out.

Should charge £18 for the Hearts game at Cappielow with a special offer of the Queen of the South game a fortnight later for a tenner if you buy the Hearts game. Excellent way for Morton fans to

They aren't technical gurus give them a break. 

I can just imagine everyone checking their phone at the same time to read the announcement "someone's having a jobby, so avoid the toilets".

The carry on with Ceptic fannies will stop will give wee Nicola more ammunition to stop crowds coming back

Celtic breaching protocol by having a squad photo shoot doesn't help either.

Idiotic. 

They really don't want fans back at Cappielow, do they?

2 game package for Dunfermline and Raith home games.

https://www.gmfc.net/live-stream-2-game-package-available-now/

Charging a reduced price of £7 for Dunfermline because BBC Scotland will be showing the game for free. I think they'll be lucky to get a double figure uptake on this particular donation.

Can't really see anyone within the BBC Scotland coverage area pay money for a stream .  Can you get BBC Scotland online from abroad?  If so, why would anyone pay for a stream?

I assume the BBC coverage will be done from the Cowshed rather than the old stand?

As far as I can find out, BBC Scotland is not available in Canada, so,  I for one will be subscribing. Also, being overseas, I don't have to watch it live. I can view anytime, up to 10 days (iirc) after matchday. Not sure if that's an option for UK subscribers.

My brother is in Toronto, said he seen it advertised and that he'd watch it.

He maybe has a fire stick or something,but I know he's watched our games on Alba in the past.

Maybe a casualty of the behind-the-scenes conflict?

The stadium was just resting in my account

I’m not even interested in hearing from them at this point, just want them gone. 

It's one of the board so it could be one of the MCT guys.

Couldn't watch without Gerry and Andy's patter. Or maybe described as politically incorrect use of the English language. 

Maybe do BBC video and Ton TV audio. It's part of the season ticket package anyway.

Aye, the streamed commentary will be better than the BBC one, which will contain frequent references to any possible bigot brothers connections in both teams.  A bit like the way any world cup game covered by the BBC mentions 1966 within ten seconds of kick off.

The stream will probably be a good thirty seconds behind the BBC’s coverage, so watching one and listening to the other will be a waste of time.

Shocking behaviour.  Imagine the shame of a national broadcaster highlighting areas of interest to their viewers at a football match, where the majority of viewers will have no interest in either side.

They are covering a championship game.  Give it some respect.  The terrible Twins get blanket coverage in the media already.  Give teams at our level their moment in the sun; it's a rare event.

One of the things I enjoy about our livestream coverage and that of our opponents at away games is that the commentators are generally reasonably well clued up about us, and our own commentators Gerry and Andy also know a bit about the opposition.  Clearly these guys make a point of learning about opponents before the game.  I've also found most of the club commentators to be fairly neutral in their coverage.  It's a refreshing change from the BBC.

Interesting angle.  Gerry and Andy's bits are interesting to us but would be of no interest to anyone but the 200 or so people buying the livestreams.  The BBC bias your claiming against Morton is interesting - haven't really noticed that, although I Suppose Vipond and the big glaikit bloke who does Sportscene now are well know St Mirren fans.

I maybe worded that bit badly.  I don't think the BBC are biased against Morton at all - they're just obsessed with the OF clubs and know comparatively little about most championship teams (apart from Hearts).  The commentators from the likes of Ayr, Alloa and Dunfermline seem to know a wee bit about our team, and on the whole they do a decent job of avoiding overt bias (obviously they lose it a bit if their team scores...).  Our level is a bit of a niche market, so commentators who have an interest in our division are bound to have more knowledge of the subject.  So far, most of them have done a pretty decent job for both home and away fans.

I've been very pleasantly surprised by Andy Ritchie. His comments are insightful and often very funny (the 'drunk man chasing a balloon' comment was a genuine LOL moment), and he praises and criticises both teams equally and fairly. Gerry's also a very good commentator.

The biggest criticism I would have of the Beeb commentators and analysts would be their tendency to create a narrative and then stick to it rather than any OF leanings. See the Queens Park v Queen of the South game for a recent, blatant example.

I'd not expect there to be too much favouratism between Morton and Dunfermline but you'll probably get something about them being a big club, should be in the premiership etc.
