I think I'm in a minority but I think that statement is awful. Why should we care about Scottish football and keeping other teams afloat? where was their concern for us in 2012? 

I agree mate. 

An awful statement from the club - but sadly not a shock.

You don’t win votes by saying fuck all the other clubs.

You don't have to say that, though. 

This is us trying our hardest to appease the rest of Scottish football again. Do you honestly think it will win us votes against celtic being declared champions?

We are caring because they are the fucks who decide to end it now or not. We are saying pay the clubs what they would be due regardless of if its declared null n void or not. That's what the corrupt SPFL board are holding over the 40 clubs that need it.

Even I’m smart enough to realise that :lol: 

Again, you don't need to say fuck the other clubs. All we need to say at this stage is re-affirm our position that unless the league can be completed it should be rendered null and void.

Scottish football does not have one ounce of dignity or sense of sporting integrity. Do you think it will influence things in our favour one bit? not a chance. Dreamland stuff.

They’re re-affirming there’s another option and by pleading case of clubs threatened with relegation looking to sway others votes.

Think that’s overly harsh at this stage. It has sensible suggestions in it but the longer term picture wont change

Maybe, but it immediately seems like a step away from we won't accept titles being awarded etc. The funding suggestion is sensible - although it gives no suggestion on how the club thinks said monies should be distributed - would it be on current positions etc?

Nope but we have to be seen to standing up for the clubs that need that money. We are saying give it to them now with no attachment. Then let them decide what happens. Sporting Integrity means null n void if its unable to complete, not ending it now and declaring relegations, promotions and champions.

I get that. It's not lost on me. But it won't work.

It makes us look like arse kissers as usual.

We are in agreement regards the outcome (or what it should be)

I do not agree with the clubs tactic here. It opens us up for another shafting. Makes us look even weaker than we do usually in regards to fighting battles - which takes some doing.

Why would they not just pay out the money you get for finishing bottom to every team to help them out short term , then the extra league place money when it's all sorted

Probably because that's far too sensible and wouldn't shaft Rangers would be my best guess.

We have the likes of Stewart Robertson and Douglas Park in our corner ☹️

I'd advise any bears to completely lower their expectation on any positive outcome for our club.

Give all the clubs what the relegated teams would get and once/if league complete give balance of the money depending on positions.

Most of the prize money has already been paid out over the course of the season and every club has already received close to that amount already. There's one single payment left based on final league positions.
