  1. I trust the purpose of this walk will be to deliver an apology to a club they've shat on from a great height before bleating on about sporting integrity. I suspect not. A truly mind-boggling level of hypocrisy.
  2. Jesus, dripping in self-justification, almost narcissistic. Clearly a man that wants to ride the SPFL gravy train as long as he can.
  3. I'm no legal expert, but I don't think it will have any material effect on the arbitration decision. Never really understood why they felt the need for representation in the court case anyway. Is there any defence their QC can present that the SPFL couldn't? Maybe someone with more knowledge can clarify, otherwise it seems a pointless and expensive exercise. As an aside, do we know if any of the 3 clubs indicated support for the final reconstruction proposal? Hearts made no secret of the fact that they were going to court if reconstruction was unsuccessful. Surely they would have considered the implications for themselves? Then again they run Scottish Football clubs, so most likely not the sharpest.
  4. Yeah I guess so. Seems an expensive attitude. I'm sure arbitration has a significant cost but surely cheaper than court. Reading the BBC report on the arbitration process I don't get the impression that our chances of success would be have been compromised by choosing this route.
  5. I find that a bit strange also. I'd assumed, as many on here had as well, that SFA arbitration would be an internal whitewash. It's now clear that their procedure is robust, and most importantly completely independent. It might not give us the outcome we're looking for but it will be a fair review of the facts by highly qualified professionals. Begs the question why we didn't go down this route in the first place.
  6. The arbitration panel powers will be limited to the case that Hearts and Thistle have put forward. There is no other remit. They certainly won't be trying to sort the shambles that is Scottish Football in any meaningful way.
  7. I completely agree. I was referring specifically to abribation case about to be undertaken.
  8. Not sure the exact details of the SFA's dispute procedure but it would be almost inconceivable that an arbitration panel wouldn't have the right to any information or documentation it considered relevant, regardless of any court ruling. I really hope the panel take great pains to get as much information as possible. Any incomplete or missing documentation would really put the SPFL in a bad light.
  9. To be fair, at this stage we don't know who he is passing it over right now. There is no reason to suspect that any of the arbitration panel will be anything other than experienced and fair in their review of the case. Important to remember that although this will follow the SFA arbitration procedures it is not being passed to the SFA itself.
  10. What in the name of all that is holy does this guy do for 250,000 a year? Scottish football doesn't half spunk a lot of money away on total mediocrity.
  11. Missed Sammy Dows and the Elcho
  12. Amazing bar some 40 or so years ago. Allison Arms the best pub in the south side.
  13. Don't think there's a vote as such. My understanding is that each club will state it's preferred solution and plans will be developed from that. At least I think that's what's happening. Do you mean we shouldn't get involved in this process?
  14. This is going to be a very interesting meeting. Incredibly complex situation across the bottom two divisions. I don't envy their task.
