honestyinsport web page has voting as following.

NO

Dunfermline

Morton

Raith Rovers

Annan

Berwick

Clyde

Peterhead

Stranraer

Arbroath

East Fife

Cowdenbeath

POSSIBLE NO

Stirling Albion

Ayr

Falkirk

Hamilton

Livingston

Partick Thistle

That's 11 No's plus 6 possible No's. I would expect most of the possibles to be No but there is still room for late bribing and bullying.

With 2 abstentions the proposals need 15 votes to proceed. (Dont know what happens in a 14-14 tie. Is there a casting vote by Longmuir?)

Why have Dundee been told not to vote but Dunfermline have not recieved such an instruction? Has the decision on club 12 been made?

That site also has Queens Park, Elgin and I'm sure another third division team as 'rumoured' nos. I'm quite sure Alloa were a rumoured no too?

Forgive the repost :-

"Fourteen years ago our football administration brought forth, in this country, a new Premier League, conceived in greed and dedicated to the proposition that two clubs should reign over all others. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that League, or any League so conceived, and so dedicated, should long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war.

We have come to bury the inequality and corruption, as a final resting-place for the club who here systematically cheated and lied and bullied, that our other clubs might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot erase, we cannot eradicate this one club without examination of the people and the structures who helped maintain that hegemony. The diddy clubs, living and dead, who struggle here, deserve so much more from the incompetent and corrupt administrators and journalists, those who pretend to act in the best interests of all, without fear or favour, but so rarely do.

The world will little note, nor long remember what happened here in this small country. It is for us, the internet bampots, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which the RTC Blogger and Mark Daly have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these bigotted songs, EBT’s, tax scams and illegally registered players, we take increased devotion to that cause which ensured their vile club ceased to exist—that we here highly resolve that RFC cheated in vain—that this nation’s Football Association shall have a new birth of freedom and that the Beautiful Game of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from Scotland."

No official statements from them but I hope so.

This is a thought that occurred to me too. My conclusion was the same as yours, but it begs the question why hasn't it been declared.

SPL doesn't meet until Monday.

Coincidence, I'm sure.

there's also an article in today's Scotsman suggesting tomorrow's vote may be cancelled as too many clubs are in opposition.

Has that claim appearred anywhere else? Can SFL Board even do that?

Vote may be postponed

If it does they are saying it will be held again just 8 days before the Ramsdens cup games start.It really is getting ridiculous at how many meetings they need,and how long it takes to get rid of a team that has basically made a mockery of Scotland and Scottish football for years.

NO to parachute to SFL/Division 3 - reject proposal (i), just say no. As SFL Clubs we welcome reasoned and detailed proposals to join in the lowest tier, including any newcos who wish to apply.

Without being pedantic I'd say these were Rangers punishments:

a) a 10 point deduction;

b) banned from Europe for three years;

c) fined £160,000;

d) a transfer embargo; and

e) refused membership of the SPL.

a) and b) were in the rule book;

c) I think is being paid in installments;

d) was illegally applied by the governing bodies; and

e) has been applied.

b) is not a punishment it is a consequence of liquidation.

To be eligible for Europe, all clubs have to have 3 years business history. How can you have this if you're a new club?

c) has this been paid?

d) overturned with the only real option being suspension or expulsion as an alternative.

I think this is why has the appellate tribunal has not been reconvened?

e) Similar to b) and is a disgrace that it was even proposed in the first place.

All new clubs must apply to the bottom tier with other interested parties.

Her Majesty The Queen and His Holiness The Pope will be the main headliners in ramorra's Red Tops.

Final plea to save Sevco and Scottish Football.

"Doesn't look like the bribe isn't going to work guys so we'll threaten to postpone the vote causing more uncertainty and potential chaos".

Moral corruption is the only term I can think to describe this.

It's got to be a 'No' vote to admission full stop. It's the only way to bring this sorry saga to a conclusion.

There will be a couple of spin-off series when Regan and the Cockwomble are turfed out, but for the love of all that is Scottish football this must end now.
