Just want fairness. Either we finish the games, or it's null and void.

Thank you.

No you don't, and absolutely no one is fooled that you do.

You just want to see Dundee United not win the league. 

Might still happen. There's more to come from these proposals and voted I'd imagine.

We’re probably one of the most likely to say yes. As much as we’d like a shot at getting top 4 it’s unlikely especially if the games were to be eventually played close together.  We also still have memories of last season where a collapse in form at a similar stage saw us only just avoid relegation. Removing that risk would be desirable. The proposal also brings back fife derby games(although means we won’t get Falkirk, financially if we had to choose one or the other rovers are a better pick)

+ Ross MacArthur is on the spfl board.

Part of my logic would be the fact that you drop from 5th to 6th due to PPG deciding final league positions, decreasing the money and perhaps encouraging the club to wait it out a wee bit longer. Personally think it's a longshot this vote doesn't pass (feckin' shite and all that), but the Pars would possibly be on the 'no' spectrum with play-offs and less money through how they're deciding it.

Dundee fans are taking this worse than Hearts fans. 

Bizarre.

United probably do deserve to go up on balance.

But Hearts, Partick Thistle (Especially them) at this point don't deserve to be relegated on the basis that they are within a game or 2 of survival and in Partick Thistle's case, the league isn't even 75% done for them.

There's not gonna be a way that pleases everyone, and if this vote goes through, we'll just have to accept it but I don't think this is even close to being the fairest of a shite bunch of options IMO. It's scandalous for the likes of Partick Thistle and a kick in the teeth when they feel that the top flight can wait an extra period of time.

In all honesty, I see this entirely differently, I'd be quite surprised if it passes. I think there will quite easily be vetoes in 2/3 leagues and possibly all of them, the carrot being waved of releasing funds will be sorted one way or another without going through this mechanism (just as Rangers have implied).

This happened in 2012 with Rangers readmission to the league system then the 2013 talks on reconstruction. The board come up with a proposal which is touted publicly as being the 'only' path possible and then a few owners go apeshit and then the clubs end up drafting something different. I think this is just the starting pistol to try and force something to happen.

I get it. It's rivalry. They'd enjoy seeing their rivals getting screwed over. I'm sure others would have a chuckle if United, having chucked mental cash at it, are stuck in the Championship for a fourth season. I'd certainly have a wee laugh if that happened.

Why pretend it's about fairness though? There's no need to. Absolutely no one believes it anyway.

I’ve just stuck a £2 on this.

My prediction: Dundee fans will still be greetin’ about this in a hundred years time.

If the reported figures are right, you need 4 top flight, 3 Championship, and 6 bottom two tier sides to vote against it.

No chance it fails in the top flight or bottom two tiers to that degree.

It's all about the Championship. Partick will vote against it.

Dundee fans are assuming theyll vote against it. 

Most will want clarity and prize money now.

Dundee fans : United more than likely deserve the title, until you sort out relegation they can't be promoted.

Dundee United/St Johnstone fans : DUNDEE FANS TAKING THIS VERY BADLY.

75% of Premiership need to vote for it to pass - 9, so 4 need to vote against it to fail

75% of Championship need to vote for it to pass - 7.5, so 3 need to vote against it to fail

75% of League One/Two need to vote for it to pass - 15, so 6 need to vote against it to fail

What have I got wrong?

No? 

I made it clear that's based on the reported voting system, not what we know for certain is happening...
