Big Bad Ross McArthur has bullied his way back on to the SPFL Board but no place for the man from ICT.

Do members have to stand down after a fixed period of service on the board - or is there an open ended voting procedure with no such conditions ?

Just asking in case the Govan crew make a conspiracy case now that one of the Ibrox mafia has been "eliminated" and one of the Parkhead made men has joined.

There is no limit on years, just need to be voted in each year. Celtic and Rangers have a year apiece.

Does that mean everyone has to be voted on board apart from the 'Big Two' as they have an automatic year around?

only 11 make the team,the rest can just but dream.

The Celtic and Rangers "revolving doors cycle" is a right stitch up.

I'm pleased to see Ross McArthur re-elected to the board, and the fact that other club representatives in our division preferred him to one of those clowns from Inverness perhaps indicates that the way things were handled this summer was not the 'absolute shambles' that many have been keen to portray.

Respect for that Socks. My difficulty is maybe having to accept who is allowed to stand and who can vote for or against the top league. Do both spit and splat have an automatic entry regardless of the votes for every other team or league. What if no 'Premier' club voted for either, will it be toys out pram and look for somewhere else to play. With the voting system we have the whole of scottish football needs looked at, from the top of the organization, that earn more in a year than some clubs can't earn in a decade.
Rant, rant, rant. Slowly but surely the good working man's game is going, going, ggggg.........


Me and my bad spelling...:(

Divisional reps are elected every year for a one year term. 3 reps for Premier, 2 for Championship, 1 for L1/2 who also have an alternate. Only clubs in the relevant divisions vote for their division’s candidates. Premier clubs have 3 votes and have to choose 3 candidates to vote for. Any candidate elected must have 66% support ie 8 votes. There is no automatic vote or place for either of the Old Firm but they alternate putting forward a candidate. They are generally elected because Premier clubs tend to try and have a rep from the 2 big clubs and the other two tend come from a stable longer term Premier or larger club and clubs with championship experience - a balance of representation. If there are more than 3 Premier candidates, the person coming bottom of the vote drops out and a further vote is taken until there are 3 left who hit 66%. In theory even in a three horse race a candidate could possibly not meet the 66% threshold due to abstentions - there are only votes for not against

It's an unpleasant analogy, I know, but I would liken the Old Firm's relationship to the other clubs in the SPFL as the knee of that policeman on George Floyd's neck.

They are strangling the life out of Scottish football.

Not the happiest of analogies, as you yourself concede, Oz, but while I agree with you to some extent, I feel that there's a lack of will among the other league clubs - particularly those in the Premiership - to stand up to these two, instead of meekly aquiescing to everything they demand. They seem to be quite happy to sit at the top table and make do with any scraps. Those in the lower leagues don't even get scraps - just a few crumbs, but without the support of the 10 in the top flight, they're powerless to do anything about it. A glaring example is the TV money distribution.
