Your prerogative ......but I was told personally by a director of one of the clubs who was there .....he described it as bribery 

Why did he tell you and not a journalist? Is this forum the paper of record these days?

Most of the facts were reported by newpapers such as this https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/local-sport/lowland-league-clubs-unanimously-reject-24210716 and this https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52600965

Seesm to confirm that there was in effect a bribe made and pressur was applied to secure an outcome for Brechin.

The only things up for dispute are was it Brechin who offered to buy the tickets or Petrie? and did Maxwell apply the pressure?

It wouldn't be the first time that the media in this country chose to ignore the SFA and SPFL doing things it shouldn't. I don't expect anyone to take Maxwell or Petrie to task however if they were trying to assist Brechin they should be asked why? Did Brechin get extra help because the had somone on the SPFL board until recently?

Levein has just said on Sportsound that he has sympathy for what happened to Brechin and that it was unfair. Really are re-writing history over this one!

Shereen Nanjiani...think she is now at Radio Scotland 

And what does that rhyme with?

Spotland (Rochdale's home ground). Cannot think of any more.

Well he would wouldn't he! He has within the last few days just accepted a post with the club to become an adviser!  This must have been under discussion  behind the scenes for a while! 

His role is to help them win promotion back to the SPFL. 

They are now doomed!
