I don't agree with you re 14-14-14 as in my view was a legitemate option to be considered. The proposal didn't relegate teams, no one went down as such, still as close to the Championship as before, just others merged up. I agree, though that as a solution it was the most flawed, for want of a better word, as those four teams would have end up in the lowest league and as a result and therefore closer to the play off spot for potentionally dropping out the spfl.
I agree in principal that stopping promotion is as unjust to Dundee Utds and Cove's cases (Raith don't 'deserve' anything mind) as our relegation is to us. Problem for us, as I understand it, is thats the outcome we require to prevent our unjust relegation.
What frustrates me most about this whole situation though, is that it didn't need to happen this way . Reconstruction was such an obvious solution as it would have stopped unfair relegations and allowed promotions, simple really! For some reason though, too many teams that had absolutely nothing or very little to lose from reconstruction, under the circumstances, decided for some reason to vote against. In particular step forward Dundee Utd, Raith Rovers for example (not sure how Cove voted). Based on their votes alone we should have zero guilt or sympathy if there promotions are over turned and also if of any other teams who voted against it are put in trouble because of or legal action.
