Scottish Football League clubs felt that they were being forced to deal with a situation which was not of their making.
Notable opponents to direct entry included Raith Rovers chairman Turnbull Hutton, Sevco Scotland Ltd agreed to accept all conditions relating to charges against Rangers FC of bringing the game into disrepute, including a 12-month transfer embargo, the payment of all outstanding fines and football debts, and agreement on broadcasting rights.
It had been anticipated that the investigation would revoke honours won by Rangers during the period that the trust payments were made, but this was not done because it was considered that Rangers had not obtained any sporting advantage by withholding information.Murray also stated that, "The biggest question is why the Revenue knew in August 2011 that Craig Whyte wasn't paying national insurance and tax but didn't put him down - this has so many ramifications for business." although it was subsequently found that the PFA had not spoken to the players to see if they wish this raised on their behalf.On 20 August 2012, Falkirk suspended one of their announcers after he referred to the club as "the Sevco Franchise".Sevco was the new company's name prior to it being changed to The Rangers Football Club Ltd.It seems such a shame that all that effort and money came to nothing.
But the oil business is all about supply and demand and only a small imbalance has a drastic effect on price, XEL was just one of the casualties. Although I may still keep an eye on the BB, now that the technical side has been resolved, I may not be posting very often or even at all in future.
It has been interesting agreeing with and/or crossing swords with other members of the BB, but I am afraid that XEL has just been one long disa Flointment' "The EWT was a great success, and Bentley appeared to be a great asset yet Big Oil seems to think differently." No they don't.
It's been generally recognised as a successful well test throughout the industry.
And I have already explained that Bentley isn't "unloved" but more expensive to realise than a higher API counterpart, at a time when everyone from lenders to shareholders to employees are looking to their Bo Ds to ensure maximum profit against minimum cost.
And that's how it's going to stay for quite some time.
Early in discussions in regards to a "parachute" into the SPL, Kilmarnock chairman Michael Johnson stated that it was likely that Kilmarnock would vote in favour of Rangers re-entry to the SPL, were also vocal in their opinion, declaring that they were likely to vote no.
