Think this became clear to a lot of sceptics (myself included) over this season, from woefully one sided refereeing decisions (especially Clancy), compliance officer charges against club and players ( Morelos and Kent at their ground particularly irked me), trial by Sportscene, a concerted and coordinated media and pundit  campaign again the club and especially Morelos etc, etc. 
Mirror this to the decision/ card tally awarded to their players which barely registers as the same coordinated hostility is then focused on the officials. A line in the sand is necessary now and although it may take time it’s a necessary task the board must be compelled to take...

Well said!

If it ‘sneaked’ by our - already proven to be hapless - legal department and inept board heads must roll.

Today everybody knew what they were voting for. 

Awaiting a statement to clarify the nature of the vote and if it was ‘unanimous’

how could it be with hearts obvious objection and our clear position on anointing the terriers champs

Nothing of the sort sneaked by.

What was everyone voting for today? And why specifically should it not unanimous today, are you aware of medical or financial reasons the clubs arent?

What vote today?

On what basis can Rangers go to court with respect to the league being called? 

People are conflating two entirely separate issues. One being the awarding of a title (zero basis for court action from Rangers), the other being SPFL leadership & governance (of which there is basis but, IMO, is unlikely to happen). 

I never said that. I said against the SPFL.

The Olympics  mile  race for the gold medal  is on ,one runner is out in front but some way from the finishing line , when due to totally unforessen circumstances the race is halted abruptly there and then.The judges give the guy out in front the gold medal .Can you imagine the furore there would be about that kind of decision. 

 

The gift to sellick was never in any doubt and was decided some time ago within the inner secret chamber of the SPFL.

They handed raith their league with only 1 point between them and Falkirk mate. 

If we were closer I still think they would have done the same. 

Possible but I think we would have put a right fucking fight up first,can you imagine the riots if we were only 1 point behind and they done what they have.They wouldn’t have the bottle.

Following today’s decision to end the 2019/20 Premiership season and expel Heart of Midlothian Football Club from the top flight, the club would like to provide a brief update to both its fans and the wider Scottish football audience.

We have stated from the outset that we don’t believe it is right that any club should be unfairly penalised because of the Covid-19 pandemic. It was previously indicated that league reconstruction would not generate enough support to pass a vote between member clubs.  In recent days a number of positive talks have been held with both the SPFL and member clubs and this topic is currently being revisited.

Hearts will shortly submit a member’s resolution that we believe is a pragmatic solution to the issues the game currently faces and a way forward that the clubs can unite behind. It is our belief that this resolution, if supported, will provide an opportunity to avoid disproportionately disadvantaging - financially and otherwise - any club. 

This is possibly the final chance for our game to stand together, protect each other and not only survive but flourish in the aftermath of this terrible pandemic. Players from across all leagues have shown a desire for reconstruction and having already received support from some clubs we are hopeful that this resolution can positively progress Scottish football.

As previously intimated the club has been taking legal advice throughout this process and are continuing to do so. We hope that the resolution being prepared will avoid the need to go down this route. Legal action would be both time consuming and expensive. However the cost to the club of relegation would outweigh these considerations.

To our supporters, we thank you for showing patience and continuing to back the club. We will continue to fight against what we believe is an unjust outcome.

So when McLennan said it was unanimous,did he include Hearts aswell as us?

If were ahead on PPG do you think they'd have awarded us the title using this method?  They absolutely would do PPG in the scum favour even if it was only 1 point in it. This past few months shambles demonstrates anything and everything must be done for that purpose.

So do Hibs get the Scottish Cup as they scored more goals than anybody else and were first to qualify for the semi finals?

Is that how the new world of “football played on paper” works? 

Utter shambles.

Very good point. If the season can't be completed then surely the team with the best stats get the cup? Seems only fair.

Unanimous to say theres no way to play the remaining games of the season. Because there's not. The focus is on getting the new season started so financial penalties dont come from that starting late.

Seems a fair/corrupt way to do things.

I was caught out like that before.  You got a more polite response than I did however.

How about they can't guarantee they would have won the title.    Remember they beat us at Ibrox 2-0 petrov and Bellamy scoring to go 5 pts ahead with 4 games to go and there was a 6 point swing in our favour.  

More like the club are not prepared to take it to court because of the expense

Sorry but I’m a stickler for stats.

It was 2-1.

That’s not a legal basis, it’s a sporting argument (which is correct) but you’d be laughed out of court.

Surely the club could have a claim regarding prize money and the potential Champions League cash, though?

Not that I expect that to happen btw.
