On a brighter note, the Championship league placing for 19/20 have been reviewed by the SQA and ICT are being upgraded to the Premiership, in accordance with our manager‘s initial recommendation.

Latest from ICTFC TogetherNESS Great gesture from the club 

I do most of my food shopping in Dingwall and find that wrapping my ICT scarf over my face is an excellent way of ensuring folk keep at least 2m away from me!

Quite interesting reading.

I would be very surprised indeed if 'threats' were issued to our club or any other.

You have to bear in mind that this piece of creative literature eminates from The Rangers and must, given their track record in such matters, be viewed with a high degree of healthy scepticism.

I would have thought that these allegations are potentially libellous, or may lead to other legal action, so I'm uneasy about seeing them on this site.

Note the confidentiality marking at the bottom of the page.

Heard that the SPFL is refusing to give out the money...Why? Because they didn't get their loan back...from Gretna...12 YEARS AGO. 

Although it wasn’t a loan that was given to them, it was an advance of their prize money for finishing last. The whole thing is a shambles.

There has just been a piece on Reporting Scotland which referred to threats without naming clubs.

A meeting on Tuesday will determine if an inquiry takes place.

The BBC Sport website and app are looking for votes for the Championship team of the season. We have 8 players in the lists (well 7 plus McCart): Ridgers. Rooney, Tremarco, McCart, Trafford, Doran, Keatings and White. 

I put all 8 in my team (biased??), but feel Carson, Welsh and Walsh should have been on the list too. 

None of our players made the top 11. 8 from Dundee United plus Forrest from Ayr, Nisbet from Dunfermline and Dorrans from Dundee.

For anyone interested, the BPL is back on the 17th, which could also mean, it's one foot closer to Scottish Football returning...

Good that there might be some live professional football back in the United Kingdom.

However, I don't think it marks any step on the road to Scottish football returning.

The EPL is expending a huge amount of money to return with no income from fans. The financial gulf between the EPL and the SPFL, even at our Premiershio level, means that option is not available to us.

I honestly can't see how professional football can return in Scotland until August at the earliest and only then if our clubs stop the usual internecine bickering and all pull together.

I've always wondered how I could fit ' internecine'  into everyday conversation.

I'm still none the wiser.l

I’ve usually been happy with my command of the English language but, as many years away from education, had to resort to Google to find the meaning of ‘internecine’.   Wow, now to try to integrate that word into everyday conversation?  In North Stand next season maybe?

Premiership have introduced the Virtual Season Ticket for the start of next season, no word on the Championship and that though...

https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/52903945

Clubs have always had the right to broadcast live video of their own games overseas so there should be no copyright issues in doing so outside of the Premiership. The Premiership wrinkle is likely because SKY negotiated "exclusive" rights to those 48 games and this had to be negotiated on that basis. Same is true of audio commentary where Radio Scotland hold the "non-exclusive" right to broadcast within the UK (and in doing so, block their coverage outside the UK). 

Where the issue might occur is in the UEFA blackout arrangements that currently see live games on a Saturday afternoon at 3PM blocked from viewing for audiences within the UK. I believe the SFA/SPFL supply their chosen blackout arrangements to UEFA at the start of the season so again, if allowing virtual season tickets, online memberships or PPV services this should not be a huge hurdle to overcome ... hell it might drag Scottish football into the digital era along with the rest of the world ! 

At ICT I believe we do have the technical infrastructure in place to be able to stream games (and commentary) if we wish. This was upgraded and overseen when we were last in the Premiership. There is however a cost factor in having the bandwidth to publish all this so its not without a fair bit of cost .... Would be good to see it up and running though and worldwide availability of our games would be great for the diaspora elsewhere .....

Sounds a great concept but if any of you are like my grandson who watches most football in his bedroom via a free link this could well be a stumbling block. I also read it is for season ticket holders only?

Realistically, unless the rights situation has drastically changed in the last couple of years, it could be for whoever you want .... The club own the rights to their own games with the exception of any they may have signed away to the likes of SKY. If you are buying a digital season ticket then you would, by virtue of that, be a season ticket holder .... the devil will be in the details but it may be a way to increase income from overall ticket sales whilst still being able to stick within social distancing norms within the stadium. The big question is whether the cost of providing the service will be profit making or not. no point in doing it if it costs the club a lot of money it does not have.

Very well put sir. I honestly think this is a realistic concept which may soften the blow for Premier league teams but unfortunately I don't see it being sustainable for clubs like ourselves in the Championship. I think the club would struggle to cover coronavirus tests for players, staff, media and security personnel let alone pay wages with no money via gate and corporate sales.

I woke up this morning in the middle of a dream in which it had been announced that the season would not start until December at the earliest. Morton then withdrew from the league and their place was taken by B36 Tórshavn.  :shrug:

Would we miss the Norseman? Sounds good to me...
