The chief executive of the Scottish Football Association Stewart Regan has praised the courageous decision by all 93 member clubs to vote for radical changes to the way that the game up north is run.
At the annual general meeting at Hampden yesterday, the member clubs voted unanimously to replace the currently unwieldy and over bureaucratic set up and replace it with a streamlined organisation.
But the biggest innovation of them all will be changing the name of the ruling body from the Scottish Football Association (SFA) to the Scottish Association of Football (SAF).
A clearly enthusiastic Regan addressed a press conference outside the national stadium yesterday:
"The change of name demonstrates perfectly how radical the shake up will be. The title 'SFA' carries too many memories of a top heavy organisation unwilling or unable to adapt to changes in the game. 'SAF' has a vibrancy, a sense of urgency about it that I'm sure will engage the football fan and make him or her feel confident about the future of the game".
The mind boggles.
