Community control in football.

With what's happened at Stirling Albion and now Dunfermline not to mention the Foundation of Hearts looking to be preferred bidders for Hearts - I reckon more clubs should consider fan/ community ownership.

And, as with crofting estates and island communities, shouldn't we get some kind of government support? It's the next logical step from independence.

Tocasaid: Community control in Scottish football?
Chan eil mo shil air Calbharaigh
no air Betlehem an igh
ach air cil ghrod an Glaschu
far bheil an lobhadh fis,
agus air semar an Dn ideann,
semar bochdainn s cridh,
far a bheil an naoidhean creuchdach
ri aonagraich gu bhs.

as far as i know in most of the countries in northern Europe the fan base has to own more than 51% of the club
