Correct.

I'm pretty sure someone was in favour of it but I can't remember who.

It wasn't baz though.

From what I recall (and only saw through others quoting him, so there might have been more to it), he was against this specific proposal but not against colts in the league in general.

Not true... I remember him saying he would seriously consider chucking it altogether if they let them in, Which were the thoughts going through my head at the time.. that's why I remember it... was quite surprised Baz felt the same

Your memory serves you well.

It's true, here it is.

In the format that was published in the media (the rangers proposal), absolutely not. I feel it clearly only benefits two clubs and includes many missed opportunities regarding developing Scottish talent. In theory I think Colts could work but other clubs passing that proposal would be complete madness in my opinion. Others can of course disagree and are welcome to try and change my views on it.

Correct, I don’t think it’s the right approach to say 100% no in all circumstances to colts but we have only ever had a rehash of the same proposal over & over. 
 

That’s not to say there isn’t a possibility that exists where I would favour colts but it certainly wouldn’t be one pandering to Celtic & Rangers which is all we’ve ever been offered over the decades. 
 

Edit: nice to have a wee bit of agreement every once in a while 😂

Hearing there's to be a vote next month on bringing the Celtic and Rangers colts into the league... Seemingly it's down to the rest of the league to get their colt players ready for their first team or the market to sell on if they're not good enough.. While they stifle young talent to concentrate on the foreign market... 

 

An absolute red line for me in football, I hope (and trust) St Mirren will vote with the seemingly clear fan opinion around Colts and get the proposal in the bin. 

A message for Dafty Faraway :lol:

"once in a while"?

Surely you mean "for once"?

Hallelujah!

He's an absolute shambles with this, no consideration for the views of Hamilton fans (which I can't imagine are out of line with other clubs & the recent fan poll). 

Also the irony in saying "there's got to be a pathway" when the Colts proposal he's championing doesn't provide one.

And there is a way for these lads to progress. get out of the @rsecheeks and go to a so called provincial club like, er, Hamilton. They had 14 graduates in their squad so for their manager to come out with this guff is absolute nonsense.

I wonder which of the OF clubs Brian Rice supports.

Because he'll never persuade me that his rage is about the lack of oppportunities for a bunch of young players.

A normal manager would be saying "Look, send your players to clubs like ours and we'll develop them in a properly competitive manner where they can truly feel the pressure of a relegation or promotion battle. They can't do that in a colt team which can't go up or down the leagues"

Instead, he laments the enormous amounts of money the OF are losing by not developing these players.

He needs to accept that battle is lost on this.

Would be interesting to see how many clubs supported this proposal and how far short they fell of the numbers needed to secure a vote.
