Not fair on the 8 teams in the 2nd Division either who all effectively are relegated? Not what they expected at in August 2012 was it? See sense SFL Chairman and vote for a 12-12-10-10
A new 12-12-1010 lets the 2nd & 3rd Division clubs know for next season what they are playing for unlike this season where confusion reins. Rangers win 3rd Division; Queens Park could win the playoff and still be in the bottom tier of Scottish Football.
@70 Don't understand why Longmuir is promoting Rangers. From the article he is saying he supports 12,12,18 structure. if that structure goes through it seems to me Rangers stay in lowest league. Agreed???
Longmuir goes out of his way to promote (literally!) Rangers and their interests, cheekily denies it then thinks this doesn't make his position untenable.The wages must be good.
I'm not sure that either the supporters or the clubs know what is best long term for the game. Neither am I sure that SPL SFL SFA know. What I do know is that the OF stranglehold on the game for the last 20 odd years has resulted in the attendances at non OF grounds dwindling. The biggest thing I can't get my head round is the Mcleish report. Why waste time and money on it then ignore it?
Message to all the suits that are leading Scottish football into oblivion, please listen to the supporters for once for the good of the game!
The fans will vote with their feet if the 12-12-18 proposal goes through. Expect attendances to tumble further.
Longmuir = The club formerly known as rangers Chief Apologist.
To be honest I dont see the 12-12-18 getting passed. The lower league clubs dont want an 18 team leage and really want two leagues of 10 giving a new model of 12-12 (8-8-8) 10-10. Most workable option and gives the lower Division Teams their same fixtures but with 2 home games.
@63: Phew ! I thought it might just be me missing the point
@59 weeMartianI second that emotion.@58 and @62 StevieD90You must be severely extracting the Michael with that scrawl, right ? Please tell me it is so and that you did not expect anybody this side of Mars to understand.Please.I'm begging.
@58 am talking about aberdeen theres massive potential in the city probley the only club that could challenge rangers & celtic for the title but there board just want sky money dont bother to go and look for fresh investment to help the club
A league of 16 would mean 12 teams playing meaningless games against each other in front of smaller crowds. A 12-12 into a 8-8-8 split would keep interest going. At present relegation from the SPL is potentially a financial disaster for both a club & it's staff. This new set-up gives clubs an escape route from financial disaster. Yes it's about money. It's what runs football!
