It was a disgrace they were relegated.
There were two options which would have upheld the integrity of the leagues.

1: season declared null and void

2: The temporary reconstruction of 14-10-10-10 which would be fair to Kelty and Brora Rangers too.

eh no, pretending that the great majority of the season didn't happen absolutely not fair so have to call it.

bottom of the table this far through the season for a reason... their results for the majority of the season.

football isn't like cycling where chris froome et al don't contest the early stages saving themselves for the big climb at the end - you win as many as you can from the off and they were the worst over the season to the point where it has to end.

if they;re not happy, then they can only blame themselves for being gash and in the relegation spot

1. null and void would have resulted in Sky and BT wanting if not the full value of the contract but a far bigger sum than what they will get now, add in a lot more season ticket holder refunds too, not an option in any way.
2. any temporary reconstruction in any format would be unfair to more teams either now or in the future than the status quo. only chance was a permanent change but the majority didn't agree with any proposals.

the outcome was always going to be the same, in England they went about it a different way and ended up in the same position as us.

members voted, majority wins. yesterday Partick were thanking the clubs that voted with them, today they are hoping to take as much money as they can from those same teams!

If the season was declared null and void, UEFA would not admit any Scottish clubs into European competitions as entry is based on league tables.

If the season was declared null and void SPFL distributions would be up for discussion as they are based on league tables.

If the season was declared null and void, broadcasters would have claims.

Being “fair to Kelty and Brora” is unfair as only one of them had a chance of joining League 2, not both.

It wasn't a disgrace, only disgrace is Hearts behaviour.

1: That couldn't and wouldn't happen for reasons above.

2: Whats more important about Brora and Kelty over Dundee, Ayr, Us, Arbroath, East Fife, Airdrie, Edin City, Stirling etc? All missed out on possible play-offs and thechance to move up a division.

I'm not disputing Hearts behaviour was disgraceful but you can't argue one club's relegation was unfair and not the other is my point and most accept Partick were harshly dealt with.

The reconstruction plan should have been plan A from the outset from the SPFL instead of the shambolic decision to end the leagues as they stood.

Kelty or Brora were denied a massive opportunity to join the SPFL and this one can be understood as there was no way it could be played but adding two clubs via reconstruction would imo have been the fairest way and also it must be said, fair to F*lkirk to promote them as well as Raith.

What if Partick had three games in hand?
Would people still be saying they deserved to go down because they were bottom?

No, they would have stayed up if they had 3 games in hand.

If they win the case then what happens? Is season null and void? If so will Dundee United and cove now not take legal action cos they’re not being awarded promotion? Then if they win case what happens? Force a 14 team league. What happens if the teams that didn’t vote for a 14 team league then took legal action to void that? And they win.......😂😂

"The reconstruction plan should have been plan A from the outset from the SPFL instead of the shambolic decision to end the leagues as they stood."

So, finish the league and have reconstruction? As long as reconstruction included a fairer distribution of monies and increased promotion and relegation, not a fudge to save Hearts, which is the only outcome that reconstruction would've be brought up.

"Kelty or Brora were denied a massive opportunity to join the SPFL and this one can be understood as there was no way it could be played but adding two clubs via reconstruction would imo have been the fairest way and also it must be said, fair to F*lkirk to promote them as well as Raith."

ICT, Ayr, Dundee, Ourselves, East Fife Airdrie etc etc were all denied a massive opertunity for promotion as well. Having titles and promotion given out but no relegation isn't fair.

"What if Partick had three games in hand?
Would people still be saying they deserved to go down because they were bottom?"

In that senario Partick would've stay up as, points per game were used to decide placings. If they were 2 behind with 3 in hand they'd have more PPG than QotS. And QotS would've rightly gone down...

What is with the unrealistically positive assessment people have of games in hand. They tend to be thrown about almost as points to be assigned when the reality for clubs at the bottom of the league is far from it. Even when mid table and folk say if we win our game in hand we will be 3rd or 4th or whatever it seldom works out that way
