delete page? anyone disagree?

I agree. This subject can either be discussed, or has been discussed, in the pages for the SPL or the SFL.--Largo1965 17:18, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
I agree - merge --> 7+1 22:55, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
Given the unanimous support for a merge and redirect and the absence of any additional comments for nine months, I've redirected this article to Scottish Premier League. There was no need to merge the contents as all relevant material was already in the Premier League page.
The merge and redirect seems uncontroversial - if there are opposing views I'm happy to discuss. Euryalus (talk) 04:01, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
Forgive the lateness of this reply, but I have absolutely no freaking clue why this page was merged to Scottish Premier League. The Scottish Football League Premier Division was a legitimate football league that ran from the mid-1970s to 1998 and, apart from the fact that the teams that were in the Premier Division in 1997-98 were the same teams that were in the SPL in 1998-99 (apart from promotions and relegations), the two leagues had/have no connection. I propose an un-merger and that a full-length article be created for Scottish Football League Premier Division. – PeeJay 18:18, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
I completely agree. I have therefore restored the page. - Green Tentacle (talk) 21:36, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
The article should be merged in my opinion. To say the leagues have no connection other than containing the same teams is a strange comment. The SPL was simply a restructuring of the old Premier Division in which power was vested in the clubs rather than the SFL and the two entities are connected in every meaningful sense that they could possibly be connected - historically, culturally, etc. What's more is that the separation of the two leagues into different articles makes it incredibly tedious to try and find joint information such as lists of league winners and the pages dedicated to each individual season. This is a poor structuring of the articles as far as the reader is concerned and if the only justification is a pedantic desire to try and make an artificial distinction appear more concrete than it is in reality then that's a poor justification indeed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:19, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
