Dundee penalty is misguided and disproportionate
The Dundee fans are revolting.
You know what I mean...
The Dark Blues, who carry the biggest away support in the First Division, are contemplating a boycott of away games and it's understandable considering how they've been treated.
With Dundee fighting for their very existence, their fans have been royally shafted - once by their own board, and now by the SFL board.
It wasn't the fans who didn't pay the tax bill, but they're the ones who stand to lose their club.
Because make no mistake, Dundee FC are very close to going out of business, and it wasn't the fans that put them in that position.
Dundee may not have any backing on their travels as fans consider a boycott
Sadly, the boycott will hit innocent First Division clubs with their own financial worries.
It wasn't these clubs who voted to hit Dundee with a swingeing 25-point penalty which almost certainly condemns them to relegation, but representatives of part-time clubs in the lower divisions.
A boycott will hit other clubs hard, very hard in some cases.
Raith Rovers, for instance, are due two visits from Dundee and stand to lose around £40,000 from the absence of an expected 4,000 visiting fans for the two games, if the boycott goes ahead.
That will be the cost to just one First Division club of a misguided and disproportionate punishment.
If clubs are to be hammered for relying on a benefactor as Dundee did, then a lot of clubs will be twitching nervously.
In Dundee's case such a benefactor who seemed to be the real deal let them down badly.
His reputation is in tatters but he doesn't face losing his club.
He never supported it in the first place.
Dundee fans are fighting for 117 years of history and great memories.
That may mean nothing to those who made the points-deduction decision, but they may be about to find out that they have provoked a sleeping giant.
