Sounds like they will change their vote if bribed to do so!

Don’t think they will now

Forfar chairman has just said that they voted yes in order to have both Thistle and Falkirk in league 1 next season.

Convienient that the deciding vote was never recieved. This is so dodgy. Follow the money and bet they'll find that Doncaster and his cronies were set to benefit from the league being called

Just turned this on - was that the Forfar chairman rubbing his hands in anticipation of big travelling supports from us & Falkirk? He better think again there.

Just heard this too - his sole motivation to get Falkirk and Partick Thistle in their division for the travelling support.

hopefully jags fans considering going to this ground next season have a think again

Yes- Forfar chairman was a diddy- after he said that he claimed no one had voted for financial reasons. Inverness chairman on the other hand- what a guy. Beacon of light in an otherwise very murky world

Despite the need to support the team, I'm in favour of organised and selective boycotts next season.   Forfar have just added themselves to my list!

Nothing to stop us travelling, singing outside the stadium but not going in. Keeps the buses going, makes a point. Really daft thing for him to go on the radio & say.

Was including  inclusion of hearts assuming no further gerrymandering . Brechin are one of the lucky turkeys . The others don't matter as far as the spfl are concerned and technically are no worse off..

Sorry forgot about Hearts.

Yep this 100%.  We can still have day out and support the local pubs/businesses and our own supporters buses but just not attend match.

In a rogues gallery of idiots, the Forfar chairman has just jumped to the front, actually saying that on radio.

Quite the feat, but will he still be #1 at the end of the day? I have my doubts.

Personally would be in favour of the Aitken Suite being opened on away game Saturday afternoons & spending my money in there with the game commentary piped in or Soccer Saturday on the tv's. Can't imagine going to an away game outwith Falkirk.

He tried to cover it up by saying It would let us know what our budget would be so we would be able to make plans now

By some accounts Dundee have business interruption insurance that covers epidemics - so they are probably one club in a decent position to survive.

Doubt it - thats normally Force Majure which means you have no Cover

Forfar chairman said they would only get £3,700 as final payment. But having Thistle and Falkirk in the same league would bring £75,000 to £100,000. Hope he looks at Thistle and Falkirk web sites, might need to change his mind about how much money we worth in this league. As others have said on the other hand great admiration for ICT for their stance of not wanting to relegate teams in this way.

Don't think the Forfar guy said he wanted us and Falkirk in their league. He  said he wanted clarity on who would be in their league as that would set his Budget. Maybe he didn't put it across as well as he could have.

Maybe those clubs that are struggling/going to struggle should look at the financial management of their club first and foremost as opposed to taking the easy option.

Until it is mathematically impossible to avoid the drop no team deserves to be relegated and until it is mathematically impossible to be caught at the top then no team deserves to be promoted/crowned Champions. 

Just because you have been sh!t/or best so far all season doesn't mean you deserve to go down/up until the points left available tell you so.

He absolutely did I'm afraid.
