Daily Express - Why was the Scottish Premiership called so early when so many questions still remain?

Was in a zoom call with a mixture of fans last night and the diddy club fans were saying that the chairman of the lower division teams didn’t want to pay wages beyond 30/06 when contracts were up and that is why they were all so keen to fall behind the spfl end season now initiative.

Still doesn’t explain why null and void would be any different for them though. Probably some truth in it and the spfl just used the issue to help rail road their give Celtic the title plan.

Everyone outside of Scotland will be asking the same question. I do find it funny how quickly their celebrations have stopped. They know themselves its hollow hahaha

That article states that the vote to end the season was NOT unaminous.

The SPFL have said it was.

Our club must come out and explain to the fans the true version.

The SPFL directors - ie The Board - voted 8-1. The clubs didn't hold a vote on this as such as it is apparently the Board's constitutional repsonsibilty to make the final decision - something they just happened to forget to tell the clubs first time around in the "helpful" advice they sent to them.

The fact that the Germans have restarted and Denmark are going to follow suit only shines that light of corruption back on the SPFL.

All we need are a few more countries with around the same amount of games or more left in their season to back up the arguement.

Unfortunately , the rest of the corrupt Scottish clubs have sold their souls and turned their back on the truth.
But I hope someone is telling UEFA the truth. I hope that someone is Rangers.

That UEFA gets to know about the missing email, the change of vote, Dundee negotiating with a big hitter, the lies told to UEFA in the letter, lies told to clubs about the prize money / loans, the lie about Gretna defaulting on a loan, the lie about the unanimous vote and all the other lies and deceit.

Do UEFA know the score ? They can't just listen to Lawwell.

"The SPFL ended the season on Monday with a statement claiming that Premiership clubs had reached a ‘unanimous agreement that the top flight cannot be finished’.

However the unanimous part of that statement is understood to be factually incorrect. At least two clubs were against curtailing the season and saw no reason why a decision needed to be rushed through so soon."


Another lie from the SPFL
it says in the report that two teams didnt vote for this but it doesnt suit the spfl agenda

" Understood to be factually incorrect" by whom? As we, for reasons unknown have said bugger all to contradict it.

Erm, when contracts expire you no longer need to pay wages.

They voted for it because they were in dire need for cash and two issues were needlessly, but deliberately, linked to achieve the SPFL's desired outcome.

This really gets on my nerves. We see what's happening, we've protested and made our point but it appears the corrupt mindset of Scottish Football runs so deep, nothing will ever change.
A court ruling is the only way things will change.

If the games being played go beyond 30/06 they have to pay wages for that period too. If there is no football next season for say division 2.

Say the league is played behind closed doors and finishes 31/08 and then no 2020/21 season. Diddy club pays wages up to 30/06 as per contract. They also need players up to 31/08 so have to pay wages too for the two extra months with games behind closed doors so no additional revenue but plenty cost for the same out come.

How refreshing would it have been if the headline had been :

"Why there was such a rush to end the SPFL season"

...and the following article going on to detail exactly why it was.
However, in the absence of any Scottish mhedia men with a set of balls that is not going to happen.
The dugs in the street know why it was called early but the mhedia continue to fanny around acting daft.
What about an article a few weeks ago that reads - why IS there such a rush to finish this season.

The spfl pretty much made a play to call the league as soon as the possibly could - pretty much since celtic organised their press conference to stake their claim - meanwhile the sfa say they are determined to play the season 2019 / 20 Scottish cup to completion even if they have to wait until 2021 - go figure
The decision to call the league but continue to play the Scottish cup is solely geared towards trying to gift the tarriers another treble.

So transparent and they don’t care who knows it.

They don't 'have to' unless they elect to extend the contracts, but that's their decision to do so.

Anyway, our sensible proposal to release cash by way of loans/advances was refused by the SPFL on a debatable technicality because it would have destroyed their despicable plan.

UEFA will probably give him a pat on the back and tell him a job awaits if he leaves celtic.

Statement said it was unanimous?
The clubs all agreed that it was impossible to finish the league within the original deadlines, that's all.

The SPFL deviously linked this to their decision to call the league to try and give it some sort of credibility.

Just like they deviously linked the vote to call the league to the distribution of prize money to clubs t,hat were on the brink of bankruptcy

The more rope we give them, the more they hand themselves.

Slowly, slowly catchy monkey.
