Dundee’s profile this season has never been higher than it was in the last five days as they deliberated whether to vote yes, having initially voted no, to SPFL proposals to end the Championship, League 1 and League 2 seasons.
All eyes were on Dens Park as we waited for what seemed like an eternity for the Championship club to cast their vote.
As the 34th and final club to support the proposal Dundee have ensured 81% of the clubs across the four divisions backed the move.
How they got there will likely be debated in the weeks and months ahead but the bigger question is what happens next?
League reconstruction is the sweetener being offered by the league in the hope it can heal the wounds and prevent a dire situation from becoming even messier.
The Premiership campaign will likely follow the three lower leagues in being declared done and dusted following Uefa’s meeting on Thursday and when the hammer does fall it will mean Hearts are relegated.
That is why Ann Budge, Hearts chairman, has been given the task of joining Hamilton’s Les Gray in leading a restructuring taskforce in the hope a way out of the darkness can be found.
Current and former players seem happy to give their own thoughts on the matter on social media with Cove Rangers midfielder Fraser Fyvie proposing a somewhat radical 17-17-12 set-up.
But increasing the Premiership from 12 to 14 teams while keeping the three lower leagues at 10 teams seems to be the new set-up which will ultimately be proposed.
It would retain the split only it would be a six-eight cut with the idea being the teams in the bottom half have two extra games to make up for missing out on the big games against the teams contesting the title and European places up for grabs.
What we don’t know at this stage is whether that split would come after two rounds of fixtures or three. The coronavirus and its impact on when it is safe to play football again will dictate that.
It would also mean Hearts, despite being bottom of the Premiership, staying in the league where they would be joined by Championship winners Dundee United and runners-up Caley Thistle.
As far as the lower leagues are concerned Partick would stay in the Championship where they would be joined by League 1 winners Raith Rovers and runners-up Falkirk.
In League 1 Stranraer would be saved from the drop with League 2 winners Cove Rangers and second-placed Edinburgh City stepping up.
Still with me? Good. League 2 would be reduced to eight teams by all the moving and shaking going on and it seems the logical solution would be allowing Highland League champions Brora Rangers and Lowland League winners Kelty Hearts to fill the void after they missed out on a play-off.
Now we all can see what is on the table the task for the SPFL is convincing the clubs they should back it.
If history has taught us anything about Scottish football it is that this will be the hardest part.
Any proposal to alter the make-up of the Premiership requires 11 of the 12 teams voting in favour. A bid to change the voting structure in the SPL was defeated in October 2012 by Celtic and Aberdeen.
Ross County and St Mirren the voted against proposals to introduce a 12-12-18 structure six months later and the 11-1 voting structure has remained in place since the SPFL was formed in June 2013.
Convincing clubs to split a 12-part pie 14 ways is going to be no easy task. Budge, who has a stake in this matter given a defeated motion will result in relegation for her beloved Jambos, will need all her negotiating skills to make this pipe dream a reality.
