From memory there was initially no need to be the champion of either the EoS or SoS to be in the promotion playoff only to be the top-placed licensed club, and there was also a reelection process for any club finishing bottom that would not otherwise be relegated. Threave Rovers left the LL at the end of 2015-16 when they failed to reapply. We all know what the status quo is and that is an existing negotiated agreement. Now if the pyramid negotiating stance is we want automatic promotion (ie an improved deal) what do L2 clubs get in return - they are being offered nothing if that’s the only aspect of the deal. So no reason for them to agree - the it will make easier to bounce back line is hardly compelling as that has always been the case and has not gained any traction. Or is it envisaged that the B team scenario will get big hitters supporting change - but only to be scuppered by the vote. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
