Where was our option to negotiate a deal

 

 

Exactly 

We will have had the option to negotiate. EFL would have said 6 point deduction and that's the end of it or take it to court and it could be 12 (made up numbers for an example there) DC said no, we went to court and got hit with the 12. All teams can negotiate, it's like a plea bargain type thing where you accept a reduced sentence but forego your trial. For some reason DC thought we'd get away with it when in hindsight it was a pretty open and shut case. The punishment was reduced eventually but the facts didn't change. We cheated, and messed it up despite being given explicit instructions on how to get away with it from the people who we were cheating. Staggering really.

The chaos and motivation destroyed by the hassle probably makes it worth most sides just taking the -6 indeed. Give us -6 at the start of the season and we stay up probably.

We got -6 and still didn't stay up. The squad simply weren't good enough.
