Unlikely that this will gain traction with the authorities but if it did, Falkirk could find themselves on the wrong side of the debate.

Who's views take precedence here - clubs, fans or players?

Artificial pitches are a product of decades of mismanagement and poor decision making. If the footballing authorities hadn't made a right f#ck up of managing the game in Scotland over the past few decades (wrong reconstruction, no summer football, awful sponsorship, disinterest in centrally promoting grass roots) then clubs wouldn't need to install artificial pitches to supplement their income because the game would be healthier. Scottish football is a cess pit of a product and clubs are simply doing what they need to do to make ends meet and ensure their match day income is pretty much guaranteed during the winter months. Those moaning about this need to grow a pair and get on with it. If they are going to have a go then at least attack the root cause, not a symptom. If their primadona knees or joints can't handle the surfaces then they should find another job. Pathetic.
