If Hearts and PT take their grievances to court then next season may take a wee while to get started. Their first action will be to take an injunction out to stop the season starting. This could be for a week or so or a couple of months.
Interesting times ahead.

The SPFL now have a difficult decision to make:

1. Do they settle out of court costing several millions? ;
2. Do they risk going to court costing in excess of £1 million? ;
3. Do they risk Doncaster' collusion with Peter (? ) being scrutinised in minutiae? ;
4. Do they risk closing the league being declared illegal? ;
5. Do they risk awarding titles being declared illegal? ;
6. Do they risk Doncaster / Dundee Utd voting collusion being scrutinised in minutiae?

Interesting times ahead.

True blue if their is a delay it might even buy us time for C.V. restrictions and fans might no miss out on many games.

bgate w - it will help against CV but would hurt many many clubs -- hard! but Doncaster and his ilk have made their bed!

I foresee hasty reconstruction plans voted through with usual accompanying threats.

21 Jun 2020 15:09:12
True Blue
1.I don't think they can settle out of court after letting it go this far. They would have offered compo before threat of court if they could.
2.The alternative to court is to cave and they can't offer reconstruction now as the clubs have voted against it.
3.The collusion will be scrutinised and also why no media attention to the vote farce.
4.Closing the league was not illegal relegating clubs might have been.
5.Awarding the league was not illegal, possibly against the rules, definitely immoral.
6.It wasn't dundee united but dundee that doncaster was colluding with and I would say that that episode was probably illegal and definitely botched and showed unprecedented levels of incompetence.
What do you think?

21 Jun 2020 15:15:22
Yes it will true blue, could be dire consequences for some clubs.

1. They can settle out of court - they have / had seven days to do so;
4. Courts will look at how SPFL arrived at league ending;
5. Awarding the league before completion may be illegal under fair play rule - deemed illegal in France;
6. Voting procedure definitely iffy at best and illegal at worst. Perhaps we will find out why Doncaster phoned Peter, and to what extent Peter had in all this.

Interesting times ahead.

I meant that it was daft letting it go to court then settling and oh how I wish a court would look into the legality of the whole episode but I really don't think awarding the title could be construed as illegal, relegating clubs on the other hand, well. The thing that annoys me, True, is that fans of other teams at my work (plenty of different teams) are not interested about what went on and think I'm moaning out of sour grapes. Their collective hatred of Rangers is astounding and when you've got st mirren or killy fans preferring one team winning the league 8,9,10 times running than us stopping the run then that says a lot about Scottish football.

21 Jun 2020 16:26:45
Apparently the SPFL have said they don't have any funds in place to pay a settlement?
And when you look at the court papers submitted by Hearts, the SPFL wanted to force the club's to call the league's and relegation as early as 8th of April!
And they've also got the SFA's compliance officer involved to look into throwing Hearts and Thistle out of the league's ( or at least get them to back down ) .
And there's still compensation to BT, BBC and overseas Tele to sort out!
A total mess!
And this from the very beginning was to award the Tims an unearned tainted title. 😷👀.

21 Jun 2020 16:53:20
If all the mickey mouse and part time clubs didn't have a vote in the first place, things may have been different.
I could never understand why the tail wags the dog in Scotland.

21 Jun 2020 16:55:05
Wheels within wheels all to help one club. And remember us getting relegated was only to help one club. And that one club sits adjudicating in silence over all of us.

The house of cards only needs one card to fumble for it all to tumble.

Interesting times ahead.

I have seen some comment by respected football writers that the current situation might force the SPFL to reconsider Reconstruction and indeed to propose going with the Rangers proposal to allow our under 21's and the other lot, to play in the lower divisions. That would allow teams that were relegated to stay up and also the Highland and Lowland League Clubs to be promoted to the league. The Rangers proposal has been strongly supported by Barcelona and others and it would see an inflow of at least £700,000 to the lower leagues over a period of years as opposed to the SPFL facing a hefty compensation claim from Hearts and Thistle, (not to mention the possibility of the season being delayed) . A competent CEO and Board of Directors would have pressed Clubs to go with this proposal in the first place and then potentially negotiate TV access for Rangers / Celtic Colts games to be televised.

Berkshire Blue - unfortunately, anything positive regarding RFC is regarded with scorn and quickly dismissed not only by the SPFL but by the media who fuel the flames. Whoever Peter is has the SPFL well under control and those that pander to his machinations should suffer the same fall as those that are deemed mighty, points and all.

21 Jun 2020 18:12:25
Guys, it will be anything to avoid scrutiny for the corrupt crew. A slight change in reconstruction proposals followed by another rigged vote with usual threats will see the legal issues recanted and any investigations halted. It is a racing certainty. I'm going to love coming back on here with plenty of the " I told you so" statements.

21 Jun 2020 18:16:33
If they try to push through league reconstruction again then hopefully we and many others vote against it. Make it impossible for doncaster and his arse kreeping cronies to vaccate their posts. I'm sick and tired of Scottish football and the shambolic management of it. Time for change Now!

21 Jun 2020 18:20:23
I agree with you slim Jim! Don't get me wrong i'm a believer in democracy but how many times within scottish football, that these very small clubs vote together to stop things happening that would improve scottish football? Not meaning this in a bad way, but the spfl/ sfa must look into rules to change this voting system! Why are small clubs who contribute very little to the game in scotland being given the same rights to clubs who contribute massively? 🤔🤔 Something needs to change here and the governing body should govern properly, pull rank and put in place league reconstruction of leagues of 14-10-10-10,end of story.

21 Jun 2020 18:50:37
SGL? League reconstruction—- is that what you think this is all about?

It is about honesty?
It is about integrity?
It is about impunity?
And about RFC!

21 Jun 2020 19:24:39
Good to see scumdee utd losing their head coach/ manager robbie neilson,
who's going back to hearts as their new head coach/ manager! 😂😂Good enough for dundee utd, a club i despise, karma is a wonderful thing! 😂👍.

21 Jun 2020 20:17:41
You don't need to educate what its all about true blue as i know fine well. But in my post i'm particularly talking/ focusing on the muppets that run our game making big decisions regarding the league reconstruction issue or lack of it. If you read my posts several weeks ago now i stated all you stated there and said on here to go all the way and take them down, or do you have a selective memory pal? 🤔.

22 Jun 2020 08:03:03
I wonder, does Nielson know that DU will not be promoted, or, it could just be down to more money, and the fact that Levein is gone.

22 Jun 2020 08:29:18
I still think that league reconstruction will happen and hearts, partick thistle and stranraer won't be relegated! It has to happen for the benefit of scottish football, as these clowns running our game, sfa/ spfl haven't a clue and are out their depth and totally inept at their jobs. We should all be pushing and racking our brains about how to oust these clowns!

22 Jun 2020 09:38:34
As the clubs rejected reconstruction and as it’s unlikely the SPFL clubs will settle out of court, I wouldn’t be surprised if these jokers are forced to play on-off play offs between the bottom and top teams to decide who plays in which league. Let’s face it, if DU are faced with a prospect of non-promotion then the least they would want would be the chance of promotion. Not ideal and whilst Doncaster and the so-called legal adviser MacKenzie should be hunted, it might be the only tangible solution available.

22 Jun 2020 15:28:45
SGL etc we as a club must oppose an reconstruction, certainly not our role to let spfl off the hook.
