"The Scottish Football League was established in 1890, initially as an amateur league until professionalism in Scottish football was legalised in 1893, the same year in which a Second Division was formed, with the existing single division renamed the First Division." — long and unwieldy. Work with it and build shorter sentences.
Re-written that one, any other major offenders.....? ChrisTheDude (talk) 07:01, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
I think the Clydebank/Airdrie issue could be handled better. Airdrieonians' entry needs to contain some reference to them immediately returning ahttp://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Featured_list_candidates/List_of_former_Scottish_Football_League_clubs&action=edit§ion=1 Editing Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of former Scottish Football League clubs (section) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedias Airdrie United, and the modern incarnation of Clydebank need to be included: while Airdrie may have taken over their registration, and are officially a continuation, as far as any supporter is concerned, Clydebank FC are no longer an SFL club. The same applies to Meadowbank Thistle and Livingston. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 09:57, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Also I think the SPL clubs should be separated off into their own section - their situation is completely different to the other former clubs, as they are part of the same League system as the SFL, so their non-membership is fluid. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 09:59, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
I've broken out the SPL clubs and re-done the Airdrie/Clydebank thing as per your comments. Meadowbank I'm personally not so sure about, as I don't feel that Meadowbank/Livingston are generally regarded as two separate clubs in quite the same way as Clydebank/Airdrie United or Wimbledon/MK Dons. In each of those cases the two clubs' WP articles are separate, whereas Meadowbank and Livingston have one combined article. I'll see what the footy project in general thinks.....

My view is that if you change location and name then it's effectively a different club - the Livingston situation is almost identical to MK Dons in that respect. To me, the fact that Meadowbank Thistle don't have their own article is an oversight. ArtVandelay13 (talk) 10:58, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
I've added Meadowbank to the list....... ChrisTheDude (talk) 12:25, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Then I Support the nomination. Though I wonder if the 'current status' column is needed in the SPL table? ArtVandelay13 (talk) 12:31, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
