The SPFL have released a statement defending themselves tonight that is so profoundly awful that I absolutely cannot believe it.
They have defended the fixture change which caused outrage today.
They have said fans should not be surprised.
They have said that the other games are in no way affected.
They have said the change – playing final day games on different days – is not unusual.
It insults every supporter in Scotland.
When it is available I will amend this article to link to it, but in the meantime let me just say that it’s staggering in its arrogance, blindness and complete lack of regard for what supporters actually want.
It distorts reality and it abrogates its own responsibilities.
It has “offered” the clubs a decision about when they play their own games, rather than make that itself.
I have never, in my time following football in Scotland, heard anything like it.
The reaction on Radio Scotland was total disbelief, laced with appalled contempt.
That is a measure of how ill-judged these comments actually are.
Neil Doncaster certainly approved this, he who “clarified” the Sevco-Rangers relationship earlier in the year, to widespread disbelief and fury.
Earlier I asked how he can still be in a job.
I cannot believe he will be allowed to keep it after this.
He does not understand football fans in this country.
Hey, if it’s not that he just doesn’t give a toss.
Honestly, I am difficult to surprise but I am frankly shocked at their attitude here.
If they don’t get this, they just don’t get it at all.
