If 14-14-14 is so much better than what we have now then answer 2 questions please.

1. Why was it only introduced as a serious question/option in the past 8 weeks and not before the season started?

2. Why not go as we are and introduce it next summer AFTER every club knows what the outcome will be for finishing in a particular league position?

A global pandemic would be the short answer, I asked you a question yesterday and you didn't answer it.
As a Clyde fan being the top team in the bottom 14 does it give Clyde a better chance to be promoted?

How about two leagues of 20?

Can we not go one step further? One big league of 44 next year, play each other once through random draw of home and away. 

Revert back to current system in 2021-2022 with the top 12 playing the premiersip, the next 10 in the championship etc and bottom 2 back down to the lowland/highland leagues.

Unless Hearts finish below 12th, in which case rinse and repeat every year until we're guaranteed Premiership status.

You might be as well putting his hand in it. He could be right in this instance. (A bit like Bohemian was right earlier...)

I'm not sure how or when I rattled your cage but whatever or whenever it was seems to have really upset you. 😂

I think you need to step back and see is 14-14-14 a better set up than the one we have now.
I like the split in a 14 because it sorts out the uneven games that the 12 gives us.
I like the bigger league because it gives 2 more teams a crack in the top flight.
Is 14 better than 12 for me yes,do we need to change the 12 not really.

 The split happens too early in the season in the 14 format.  

Teams could end up operating with two different squads, one going full throttle in the league at the start then a scaled down one from January as their aspirations are cut to seventh place.

Being the top team in the third 10 would also get them an excellent chance of promotion.

Apart from the 6 teams above them when they finished 7th.

Promoted only to be almost certainly relegated back from whence they came when the big reversal happens

Why would it be a downside for clubs to be more adaptive to their position as the division goes on, instead of spunking money on utter shite on long term deals throughout (see Midlothian, Heart of)?

In any case the straightforward solution is to include the team that finishes top of the bottom section of the league in the first round of a playoff system for European spots, which gives teams an extra incentive to not down tools after the split that doesn't exist in the current setup.

That's just personal preference. If we get into that you'd be here all day with several different answers.

We're being presented with one option that is apparently crucial to save Scottish football i.e. we're being told this is about more than just saving Hearts from relegation. So my question is, why? Why is 12-10-10-10 going to send us into peril and 14-14-14 is the saviour? I can't see it.

My guess behind the thinking is a bottom league of 14 would allow all these teams to hibernate until ready to play.  As it stands some teams in League One will be in a better position to play more quickly, and will actually be harmed if they go indefinitely into shutdown, Falkirk & Partick for e.g.  So they move up to the Championship with other teams who can probably shut down for a bit but need to get back playing soonish.

So in essence you're grouping all the teams who can't play into one league at the bottom and allowing them to come out when it suits, without it ruining two divisions and hampering teams who have no way of shutting down indefinitely.

It might not be perfect but they are clearly trying to align clubs for a general consensus while also addressing issues like Partick being relegated unfairly and Falkirk not getting a chance at promotion.

When hearts are relegated from the top 14 will we go 21-21
