    RT… reporting crowd limits mayn't be increased from 200 to 500 next week as previously planned. That'd be a big blow for all clubs.

    I think the clubs had power to negotiate something better in terms of matches to play. Maybe a couple of weeks more of season without salaries being paid in November, but with clubs paying during lockdown would have been possible. At the end everyone has to make sacrifices

    So behind closed doors football. A few games without fans is one one thing but it could rumble on and you could have a league season with no fans. Which hardly seems worth it, even with the streaming it would get boring very quickly and fans wont be interested unless they can get to games. Pretty worrying overall.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    It is what it is though. The R number is increasing in Ireland, the pandemic is far from over, and there's not a whole lot can be done about it all to be honest.

    True enough. As you said the pandemic is far from over. BCD would be fine for one season for half a dozen games at home each, but if it ran into next season then there would have to be a serious rethink. Hopefully it doesnt come to that but there doesn't seem to be much light at the end of the tunnel atm.

    Streaming service is being launched on Wednesday. Should be interesting to hear more finer details about it.

    Id find that an absolute nightmare. I reckon the government will have to acknowledge the benefit to physical health and the detriment to mental health in all this.

    He might be a bit delusional but then again this type of service has to start on a professional standard level sometime.
    And would this not be the optimum time to launch it?
    How many subscribers do you think will buy into the package?

    I'd say 15,000 subs is achievable which is basically the LOI hardcore fanbase and I think the price point they've set it at reflects that, can't see no more than 20,000 which Devine somewhat mentions

    Well, Devine is talking about 20k watching one game, which isn't going to happen. (Or if it does, check the odds for unusual patterns)

    That said, of course he's going to be upbeat about it in the media.

    I think the reality is more likely as redobit suggests - people will get bored of the streaming, especially if it's poor (i.e. FAI) standard. It's not remotely the same as going to the match.

    I can barely tolerate watching football on the TV with high end productions. Id say watching a low quailty presentation on a laptop will be intolerable. Nothing compares to being at a match the scent of curry chips and deep heat on Friday night cant be beaten.

    I can't watch the English football at the min, well to be fair never that attracted to it bar the championship but I can see the point here on the general sporting public not taking LOI GO service with no fans at matches.

    More so, I can't see any fans at matches in LOI until 2021 given the current state of affairs.
