As the Hearts owner Ann Budge revealed her new league reconstruction proposal this week to the 42 Scottish senior clubs, she included some very valid points.
She spoke about needing to protect the national game and everything that goes with it as well as lower league clubs potentially unable to afford to play behind-closed-door games due to lack of income.
Reading it also struck a chord with me in relation to players at all levels.
Contract extensions it seems will be impossible to come by for many and for others wage demands will be a thing of the past as the power will shift from the player back to the club. It may simply be a case of get what you can to survive.
As hundreds of players get ready to enter the unemployed sector with their contracts expiring tomorrow, there's a couple of points I'd like to look at.
What's happening round the Scottish game?
Clubs have started to show how cut throat this summer will be with Ross County and Dunfermline announcing this week a combined total of 31 players are being released because the future is so uncertain.
This is a trend I expect to be followed in the coming days and weeks by other clubs as they themselves battle for existence and costs are slashed.
With talk that lower league football may not resume until January 2021 due to the crisis and reserve teams potentially being scrapped by a lot of top-flight clubs I can only imagine the worry and anxiety amongst all players is heightening.
Traditionally top-flight players who have been let go or younger players who have failed to make the breakthrough would drop down the leagues to continue their careers or to reinvent themselves but as it stands that option may not be there.
I'm a living example of that as in the year 2000 I left Motherwell and dropped down two divisions and joined Partick Thistle.
I started playing regularly and managed to get my career back on track and became an international player who gained 54 senior caps. That pathway certainly worked for me but may not be there for younger players any more and that's a real concern. It means a lot of unfulfilled talent could be lost to Scottish football for good and it saddens me.
On top of all that, mental health is also a major issue in society and players aren't immune to it.
There will no doubt be many going through a really tough time at the minute.
The players union, PFA, in Scotland and numerous mental health organisations will be working round the clock with players' wellbeing paramount so let's hope they stay strong.
What does the future hold?
It's the million-dollar question and every club and player is in the same boat, no one knows unfortunately.
However with squad sizes naturally going to shrink at every level and the purse strings being tightened I fear full time contracts especially will be suppressed.
Players will even more so have to look at contingency plans and undoubtedly employment options outside of football. For some this is new ground, as many will only have known a full time career in football.
I just hope they have used this lockdown period to assess their options and put future plans in place.
The football world they have been used to will be significantly different.
Scottish football, along with other major sports, will have to adapt - of that there's no doubt.
Clubs and players will have to work together in every aspect for our game to flourish.
Let's hope these tough times bond everyone together even though it seems a long way off at the minute.
