Hearts and Thistle very existence has been threatened by a governing body only interested in one club,, what alternative did they have? they were backed into a corner using vital funds to fight court cases is not what either club would have wanted., so they must be confident of success

There are some clubs in
agreement that the M8 alliance have been left with no option but to press the big red button.

But there are others, and plenty of them, who have been infuriated by the manner in which they have gone about it and, in particular, by the enormity of their demands.

So, clubs weren't bothered by the blatant corruption that has dire consequences for some teams, but are furious that two of those teams, who are affected the most, are fighting the decisions. Well done Scottish football on becoming a dictatorship.

Considering in other countries its been successfully challenged, his stance is pathetic to say the least. The fact he says Scottish football led the way is genuinely hilarious considering we could be playing football again just now like almost every other European country...
That's the bit that got me, Scottish football led the way.
That arsewipe must be on strong drugs.

Keith that spent a month telling us that the resolution to end the season was a big survival plan to bring prosperity to the game when in fact it has caused more chaos and money than options to restart or null and void ever would have.

KJ is a disgusting tarrier arselicker with zero credibility. His ramblings during this pandemic would shame even the lowest of the low.

So essentially Keef thinks its okay for a club to be relegated despite them being 2 pts behind with a game in hand. When football could've started back this week, like England have done. Testing costs could've been covered by the fact we don't pay £4m in compensation to Sky and BT, plus the sponsorship we would get.

He see's nothing wrong with the Board not being clear to all clubs about the financial implications of ending the season early

Hearts and Partick Thistle £10m threat to clubs lost support and they might regret it if decisions go against them - Keith Jackson
The battle goes to the Court of Session this week and adds to the madness of Scottish football during lockdown.

Years from now when
 historians reflect on the Great Lockdown of 2020 they will
 see that Scottish football led the way as the true pioneer of this pandemic.

Records will show that the game in this country descended into a state of complete and utter madness long before the rest of the real world eventually caved in and lost the plot too.

It’s a scary place out there these days and some of the events of the last few weeks have been enough to make you wonder if there’s much to be gained from ever going out the front door again.

Certainly, the vein-popping insanity which has throttled the SPFL since March shows no sign of loosening its grip any time soon.

In fact, it will be cranked up again over the next few days as Hearts and Partick Thistle kick the whole drama into the Court of Session, having already issued the rest of Scotland’s clubs with a £10million relegation ransom note.

If they get their way we’re all about to be dragged back to the very start of this crisis and the decision to call time on a season after it had been infected by the same virus which has unleashed such suffering and chaos.

From Dundee and their
 mysterious flip-flopping to Neil Doncaster and his dubious back channelling, it could all be dragged back into the public domain like a recurring nightmare.

The trouble is, where there was almost unanimous sympathy back then for the plight of these two clubs, and for Thistle in particular, the mood around this new normal has taken a turn for the worse.

There are some clubs in
agreement that the M8 alliance have been left with no option but to press the big red button.

But there are others, and plenty of them, who have been infuriated by the manner in which they have gone about it and, in particular, by the enormity of their demands.

The threat to trigger an
interim interdict to prevent next season from kicking off as
scheduled on August 1 has also raised the temperature significantly and contributed to the feelings of ill will swirling around the 12 
top-flight clubs.

At 3pm on Wednesday, just hours after the preliminary hearing at the Court of Session, all 12 of them will dial into a video conference call to discuss the next step in Scottish football’s recovery.

On the agenda is a proposed rule change which would empower SPFL chief executive Doncaster and his board with emergency powers to act as they see fit should, heaven forbid, another pandemic force our game back into lockdown at some point in the future.


Over the weekend, Doncaster was also locked in fruitful talks with the Scottish government to secure permission for Premiership clubs to restart full contact training from this morning. That means the top 12 can now arrange pre-season friendlies between themselves while also advancing plans to get fans safely back inside their grounds as quickly as possible and turning on the tap of matchday revenue.

All the while, Hearts and Thistle continue to hold a gun to the game’s head over the manner in which last season was shut down.

It’s this refusal to allow the rest to focus fully on moving forward which is causing resentment to build and tempers to fray.

This is likely to dominate the conversations on Wednesday.

There is every chance that this uncertainty and rancour will all still be rumbling on in three weeks’
time when the SPFL holds its AGM to decide on the make-up of Doncaster’s board for the new campaign. There’s also every chance Celtic’s chief executive Peter Lawwell will be re-appointed to the set-up at that stage, replacing Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson as has become the customary summer boardroom job swap in recent times.

If that happens then Lawwell, who has kept his own counsel throughout this period of
 unprecedented unrest, will be dragged into the thick of the fight.

He’s unlikely to join in quietly or, for that matter, to feel much in the way of empathy for the two clubs most sorely aggrieved.

It really is a mess of gargantuan proportions and as the bad blood continues to simmer behind the scenes Scottish football’s dirtiest laundry may now be aired in full public view, assuming Hearts and Thistle’s lawyers win the argument on Wednesday morning.

If it is decided by Lord Clark that the case should proceed to the Court of Session the two rebellious clubs will feel their own actions have been largely vindicated, no matter how much anger they have caused among the others.

If, however, it is batted out at the first stage and Hearts and Thistle are ordered to enter into arbitration through the SFA instead, the whole basis for their claim will have been greatly undermined.

If the issue of a compensation claim somehow winds up going back to the vote of all 42 clubs then Hearts and Thistle would be as well standing outside and whistling for their cash.

There may have been a time and place for such a conversation.

Even the most myopic and
 self-interested of chairmen and chief executives could see
 the blatant unfairness of what was done to these two clubs back in March when football was stopped.

But much has changed over these historic, life-changing last four months.

What was once a cruel world is in danger of losing its mind. At least our game will be there to welcome it to the madhouse.
He keeps going on about Hearts and Thistle holding a gun to the head of the SPFL,it is the other way round except Doncaster and the cabal pulled the trigger.To give emergency powers to this crooked bunch is totally bonkers.Doncaster and the rest should be chased down the road and replaced with totally independent professional people with no connection to any Clubs.
Chairmen of clubs like Alloa and Brechin should not hold positions of power that hold sway over clubs that actually contribute to our game.

This bit really gets me. Sympathy? You fcking did this to them. As we're seeing around the rest of the world, we could have easily separated the money from the football and would be playing to a conclusion right now. These cnts have PUT Partick in this position, and now they're agahst that they're being questioned?

They all felt dead sorry for Partick (not enough to vote for reconstruction or slightly damage their own pockets mind) and expected them to go quietly away with a wee pat on the back and there there. But answer them back and they snatch away their two faced condolences?

Honestly, this country is deeply, deeply sick.

Does it matter what KJ thinks? Outside of FF members and those of the rapidly declining number of people, who buy the DR and who bother turning to the back pages, guess there won’t be too many others, who will know who Keith Jackson is.

If you read closely enough between the lines then this my friends is what they are really scared of. Not the reputation and good of Scottish football but the thought that their corruption will be exposed.

Rangers have played an absolute fucking blinder with this, got them into court by making the bullets for 2 other clubs to fire.

Playing these bent bastards at their own game and now they are squirming for dear life at the thought of legal eyes poring over their corruption.

" That means the top 12 can now arrange pre-season friendlies between themselves" Why would you want to play friendlies with your rivals before the season starts,fkn ludicrous.

Jackson's mindset is fascinating. He clearly sees Liewell as a playground monitor who, when called upon. will sort errant children. In reality, PL instigated the disharmony.

Is Neil Doncaster guilty of conflict of interest by offering SPFL legal adviser to clubs wishing to back the league against Hearts and Partick Thistle this week?

KJ: Not as far as I can make out. The gun-to-the-head strategy being adopted by Hearts and Thistle seems increasingly bizarre and has infuriated clubs all over the country.

GR: The timing and content of his letter to member clubs is so dubious and distasteful. Why was it sent? Do the SPFL need other clubs to bankroll their legal defence? Are they running scared? Looking for safety in numbers? They might be on the ropes on this one.

CS: It's hard to know what to think with all these things at the moment. We can’t wait for court battles and statements to be replaced by games and goals.

FW: I’m no legal expert but it doesn’t look good and has certainly fanned the flames of an increasingly bitter dispute.
‘The gun-to-the-head strategy being adopted by Hearts and Thistle seems increasingly bizarre and has infuriated clubs all over the country.’

.......well name them too, you spam fritter faced kunt - we all know you take Liewell up the rear and enjoy his bodily fluids.

If Hearts and Thistle's legal challenge is upheld this week, and they go to court with the SPFL, Stewart Robertson's parting shot as a member of the board should be to state that it must be "embarrassing" for any SPFL chairman who has supported Doncaster and his pals during this episode.

i wonder what Jackson gets out of this. I mean he surely cant be stupid enough to realise that if and when his buddies at the SPFL get flung out, he'll never be getting a story ever again.

You can just tell that Keef is excited at Liewell interfering.

Sycophant .
He actually believes Lawwell's keeping his own counsel in all of this,does he not realise he's got puppets that'll do that for him. I don't know why he just doesn't join the Celtic view and be done with it. His Editor in chief doesn't come out of this smelling of roses either, allowing his rubbish to go to print.

The hole is dug, it’s surely now just a matter of time until the grave diggers can fill it all in and erect the headstone. I can’t see how the game in this absolute toilet can continue in it’s present state?

Jackson keeping the tirade going so he can have a job as the SPFL media officer when the inevitable redundancy comes from the Rhecord.
The lack of any integrity in his job is astounding, hes nothing but a propaganda mouthpiece. “Keith go and write an article about the 2 clubs being bad and SPFL good” and his reply “OK Neil can you ask Peter how I can support him in the piece as well”

The corrupt SPFL lied to member clubs simply to end the season early and award a bogus League title.

The corrupt SPL lied to UEFA when informing them that member clubs wanted to end the season, before a vote was even taken.

As for the Dundee vote scam ? Naturally, Keef will blame Hearts & Thistle for all of the above.

Jackson really so much under the thumb of Lawwell.

Very cringeworthy reading in that article.

Man the %^*& up Keith.
