In Topic: Scottish Independence Referendum

Yesterday, 09:12 PM

And how many scotch play south of the border?  Far, far fewer than there used to be.

 

It's a non issue.

It won't be for the Scottish players when their English and Welsh clubs unload them.

Yes
Because in the whole Scottish independence debate that is the most important issue.

Now now I'm just pointing this out before football clubs in England and Wales send the Scots back over the border.


In Topic: 25k for Wallabies last week, 14k today v Arg ... Ouch

Yesterday, 07:13 AM

Not a good crowd at all.

 

70K saw the Wallabies play a month or so ago in Sydney.

 

The Gold Coast is a wasteland for sporting teams. They shouldn't have played there. 

Would i be right right in thinking that the Gold Coast Titans average league crowd would be close to that figure for the Argie game?


In Topic: Scottish Independence Referendum

Yesterday, 06:44 AM

If Scotland leaves the United Kingdom, it will also leave the European Union, at least for a lengthy period, as I understand the implications of independence.

 

It will have to make a separate application for membership of the EU, and that application could be opposed by at least some of the other EU states.

 

Does that mean that free movement of labour, capital and so on will not be allowed between Scotland and the other EU states, at least until it attains membership?

 

If so, does it mean building border posts between Scotland and England?

 

It may sound ridiculous, but is it a logical outcome of what could happen with a 'Yes' vote?

 

Would any Scots actually want this?

Something else that has to be considered is sport. With Scotland not in the EU how will that affect Scottiish players in the football leagues?. Under EU rules you are only allowed a certain number of non EU players.

The simple rule should be that once you have played for a country at senior level, no matter who that country is thats it. You stick with that country forever.
