Dundee had every right to change there vote, the reasons behind how we chose to vote are private unless we choose to divulge them.

We have no obligation to explain to anyone how we came to the decisions we did.

I wish we had stuck to our original vote but the idea we have to justify anything in a democratic voting prcess is nonsense.

We might just be turning up to confirm we sent in a vote before the deadline (which wasn't a deadline), there might be not a lot in this, we'll have to wait and see. Might be worth getting an extra big bag of popcorn in though. 🍿😉

Definitely makes me wish we had stuck to our original vote, pushed for making the season void and then once the clubs had decided to eventually call the season fought tooth and nail to keep play offs even if they were to be at the start of the new season. I see no good from what we did. It has made us look bad in the eyes of many clubs. JN having to testify will only prolong our bad publicity. We gained nothing from the whole affair which imo has been an unmitigated PR fiasco for the club. I just wish it were all over and we were back to playing again!

You think WE'RE in a PR fiasco, could be worse, we could be Hearts. 🤣

I know but it is all self inflicted on our part. We shouldn't be where we are.

I'm still not convinced by this but it doesn't really matter, it is what it is and us fans are unlikely to ever find out what was discussed. It will blow over in time. 

Break out the popcorn mate, sit back and enjoy the soap opera of Scottish football. 😜

Nelms was only doing his best for the Club. League reconstruction would have benefited many of the Clubs under threat so the opportunity to be able to discuss any such proposals was made possible. Even though it failed, I believe it was a worthwhile venture.

Nelms could have stuck with the no vote and still been an advocate for reconstruction.

Like most, I was happy to go with NO in the vote but when things took a turn for the bizarre we had nothing to lose by trying to stop the process. The thing is, we don't know what was up for discussion. League reconstruction was the biggy and while it didn't go through that doesn't mean that it wasn't seriously pursued. Easy to say now (or even at the time) that it was naive/wrong/blah blah blah but ultimately we don't know the details.

Do you really think that would have been the end of it, clubs were desperate to get their cash and put an end to the season so they knew where they stood. Especially the 'wee' clubs. Despite league reconstruction being dangled as something to be discussed, do you really think it would have been MORE likely without a club putting pressure on to make it happen considering how it turned out. At least we tried.

Agree with this, we tried, maybe more in hope, but I still think JN was played. Not sure by who but it does still not sit well.If the court asks him why then we may find out but given the rules of the vote I guess he may not have to give any reason.
