    The more I read that the angrier I get.

    Basically says sod sporting integrity and **** every single one of us who supported the club the years we were being cheated.

    Spineless and gutless and I especially thought better of Dempster. Shameful.

    Not fussed either way. Let's concentrate on all things Hibernian.

    I have to say I am completely bored of it all.

    Legal view suggests very little chance of proving it and no chance of stripped titles. Some people just don't want to hear that.

    Given the choice I would prefer a review for transparency but this sweep under the carpet crap needs to be dropped. Our club doesn't do that remember.

    This decision does the complete opposite of that.

    Disgusting statement which condones what The Huns did.Could only happen in Scotland.

    Petrie and co are a bunch of spineless ******g *****bags.

    Looks like it'll be left to Celtc to get the Hun's titles stripped.

    I'm no expert on finance, but it feels like they were cheating, looks like they have got away with one.

    Interesting to see if this will effect anyone's willingness to attend games?

    It doesn't surprise me, the board decision is described as unanimous, if that include those elected by supporters then they have serious questions to answer.
    This bit surprised me the most, they are on the board to represent the majority of the fans wishes and failed to do so when required.

    Overall a bad statement, should of kept quiet rather than post an open invitation to Rangers to do what they want again.

    Wheather I agree with them or not, the club has acted with class yet again. If that's the decision made by Hibs then so be it.

    It's a pragmatic decision, an enquiry won't satisfy the majority of those demanding one as it won't result in titles being stripped, the only real winners would be the lawyers. And one that has been taken knowing that it would be deeply unpopular with some fans.
    Disappointing, yes. Disgrace? No.

    Class?? Allowing cheating isn't class. That's the most patronising statement I've ever seen from Hibs.

    Posted something on the other thread that got lost in the threads being merged.

    Firstly, I hate to bring up hate to the guy and apologise if I am way off but wonder what type of impact Rods relationship with blazers had on this.

    I know little about the whole saga apart from the obvious but how we can just sweep this under the carpet is ridiculous. They a**eholes who run Scottish football are at it - I hate them.

    Surely our fan reps never agreed to this - scandalous if so.

    Not sure why fans reps are getting it tight when none of you know what was said at board meetings.

    I'd imagine once vote is taken then a unanimous 'stance' is taken. No point in saying a majority of the board decided.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    How do you know what the majority of fans want?

    Far as I can see there's a few dozen people ranting on a message board. That's hardly "the majority".

    Massive error by Dempster and co!

    Could this be Petrie helping his friends at the SFA
    That's my initial thoughts.

    Very disappointing. No surprise now the majority of st's are bought. What are folk gonna do, not turn up for a ticket they have paid for.

    Very very bad patter.

    Regardless of legally, surely the sfa/spl can see that the routes of the competition were broken.

    Perhaps someone able to write a decent strongly worded letter could put one together so it could be sent to the club along with the signatures of everyone who disagrees with the clubs stance?

    Saved me replying. 'Class', if Hibs class is leaving your own supporters feeling cheated then...

    Absolute holocaust of a statement. Least Petrie never upset his pals though eh?

    I'm in the same camp with this stuff. Don't particularly care and certainly don't feel ashamed by what they've said. Would've been better to save the bother and keep the statement to themselves.

    As long as we win on Saturday, all that really matters.

    .net loves a meltdown, it will blow over.

    I'm not looking at that... I don't want to see my club shame themselves in print. What we thought counted in 2012, but they were still selling season tickets at that point.

    It's a pity that the view is that not even 1 % of our focus and energy can't be spent ensuring that the governance and jurisprudence of the game is as impeccable as this club's, and all other clubs' fans deserve (inclusive of the Rangers support).

    The game has suffered badly in the past 6 years and the decisions that have come from the sfa, And the spl/spfl executive have played huge roles in that.


    Disappointing in the extreme

    Says it for me Sean and if unanimous means our reps have supported this position on their own with effectively communication silence then the roles over for me.

    Disappointed with Hibs. The cheats will be emboldened for the next dodgy trick that's for sure.

    Not really bothered about celtcs motives, hope they push this a bit further than we do.
