There's 10pts away right there..... :\

At least. Should be 25 points in line with Dundee imo. That would put them bottom, just three points behind Airdire.

It should be at least. Do the SLF still not have regulations for this sort of thing? I know the SPL now do (a 3rd of the previous season's points are docked for first offences) but the fact that the SLF don't is poor.

Bryan Jackson is the same guy who was administrator for Dundee and Motherwell was he not?

Happy if he's in charge, he might be able to save this sinking ship.

Don't care how many points we get deducted in all honesty, just want the club to survive and remain in the professional set-up.

On the contrary, in SFL it's arguably much better to have a flexible system.

As was pointed-out at the time of Dundee's admin... there isn't much positional money in SFL, and there's no relegation at the bottom.

Clubs afoot SFL3 wouldn't care about losing 10pts. Clubs gambling on achieving promotion, then missing-out, wouldn't mind losing 10pts.

Having a flexible approach also allows each case to be gauged on its merits, e.g. a well-run club hitting cashflow issues caused by weather.

And the various avenues of appeal should ensure the flexible approach isn't abused.

The most bizzare thing about the SFL rule book is, that despite a Livvy and Dundee both going into admin while the SFL; there are no rules about sanctions. Odd.

It's something that needs to be sorted, including allowing for what HibbeJibee pointed out in his post.

We deserved any penalty we get, even if that is relegation to the 3rd.

With the last game of the season being between Dunfermline and Airdrie on 4th May, we could see a world record number of own goals being scored!

Was one of the all-time classic own goals not scored by a Dunfermline defender against the old Airdrie right at the end of a season to knacker up a Dunfermline promotion bid. I'm sure it was a brilliant piece of mis-cue and he absolutely burst the net with an attempted clearance?

Much of the reasoning for that was argued by Longmuir & Ballantyne when Dundee entered admin (first couple of minutes):

Most sympathy ends here. Cannot abide clubs cheating creditors, players and staff out of debt then sauntering on as if nothing happened.

They should've told the entire squad they were free to leave in January. More concerned with a hilarious promotion gamble than paying money to people who are owed it.

If they're not at the very least relegated out of this it's a complete crime.

Got to say that the prospect of Dunfermline entering administration and thus giving them a chance of fulfilling their fixtures is good news for Falkirk in a sporting sense.

However, like Paco says, Jackson history points to this having a less than savoury ending for creditors and will leave a bad taste in the mouth.

This isn't as much fun as the last team to go into administration.

You're relying on creditors accepting a CVA if you are to come out of administration. Given who the creditors are this is extremely unlikely. What you need is for someone to buy out the club and provide the creditors with a business plan and then hope they accept 10p or whatever in the pound. Is there any chance of that happening?

Don't worry I've composed a strongly worded email to NASA informing them of the ramifications of a big point deduction. Armageddon!!1!1!

Almost certain, we will not let those tarrier b*****ds take us down. It's a conspiracy.

Are you referring to HMRC? I don't think they have a sufficient amount of the debt owed to them to veto, could be wrong though.

Can't defend against Paco's post. Administration is a welcome process from a fan perspective as it maintains the club's survival, but it does leave a nasty taste in the mouth with regards to how we're going to f**k over various creditors. Hopefully our new owners will have a better idea of how to run us within our means. I'd have no issue with relegation as a punishment either.
