Petition against the Scottish Football League banning webcasts
The Scottish Football League have recently taken exception to Greenock Morton supporters conducting webcasts (fans commentary broadcast over the internet via mobile phone) at SFL away matches. This is a non-profit service which has offered a wonderful alternative to football fans who cannot make the journey to away games or are living abroad but want to continue to follow their team. Fans made a ú1 donation for this service and any profits were donated to charity.
The SFL have cited a "media contract review" as their reason for this shocking and utterly disgraceful course of action. After the bad press Scottish football has received recently I urge all fans to make themselves heard and give the SFL a clear message that they should stop making move to destroy our beautiful game.
Please show your support by signing the petition in the name of our once beautiful game. Football is on life support just now, but the beaurocrats are about to pull the plug.
As a life long football fan I find your recent decision to ban all future away match webcasts by fans as disgusting and completely pointless. You have taken away a wonderful service which provided an opportunity for football fans to continue to support and follow their team from across the globe. This service also resulted in the raising of funds that were subsequently donated to various charities. I hope you will realise what effects this mindless decision has had on undeserving football fans (of which there are few left that are willing to put up with anymore), and will reconsider your position.
