Splitting feathers

A tale of two leagues.

Or the same league that just isn't really a league.

This is what I don't like about the SPL split. It's actually an affront to the very idea of a "league."

Imagine that Wednesday's 12 goal thriller piqued interest in the SPL elsewhere. So today people are looking out for SPL results and table: what do they see?

The team in seventh with more points than the team in sixth.

Are they going to take the time to find out that we have a split for the last five games? Or are they just going to come to the conclusion that we're all mental and run a mile?

All will be put right, of course, if Hearts beat Celtic tomorrow.
