Wycombes owner has said they have lost 1million so far and are likely to lose 2.5 million in total.
Sounds like a gross exaggeration to me. They are playing politics because they want to end the season and qualify for the play offs.

Peterborough have now publicly supported the Palios proposal. I have no idea of the wider support for our plan, but MP believes he can get a majority to support it next week.

I think Portsmouth, Ipswich and Sunderland should follow. In fact, hardly anyone is worse off under MP’s proposal. Most teams are unaffected, but more teams have a chance and only a few may have a slightly reduced chance of promotion. It’s more sporting and fairer.

I am sure they would find the extra money to play in the play offs.If they have too.

Interesting that Alan Nixon has tweeted that the League One table is almost certain to be settled on pure PPG but that relegation to League Two is a 'close call'. I assume he is suggesting that the Barnsley proposal of no relegation is seriously being considered.

Daily Mail reporting that we have been relegated so I probably misread Nixon's tweet.......

I wonder if MP will genuinely go legal if we lose .. if he will then he has a very good case IMO as I have read the EFL regs (sad I know) and I can't see that they what they are doing is allowed no matter what the vote... nowhere have I seen a clause which overrides that all fixture changes changes will apply to the next season. I am sure MP will not want to and it is costly of course BUT bit like BREXIT was if the other side know that ultimately you will do nothing then you get screwed....

I don't think we will go down the legal route as it will be too costly and despite what the regs say we are unlikely to win any case.

I agree. We won't have the time, money or energy to spend on it, as simply surviving will be a challenge in the months ahead.

I think our only hope is that the Barnsley FC proposal, which is scheduled to be voted on first, is accepted....
BARNSLEY’S ALTERNATIVE PROPOSAL
- No club will be relegated from a division that fails to conclude its regular season fixtures

Self interest under financial pressure is prevailing. Really bad luck for Rovers! Still, like always, it will be get up, dust yourself off, and go again.

It is more than 'bad luck'. We have been completely screwed by the EFL who had it in their power to annul our 'relegation'.

Our plan does not even work against the interests of the vast majority of the clubs who will vote against it, which makes it all the more galling.

We will remember who they were.

I thought they needed over 51% to change the rules. Have clubs voted now or have I missed something?
