Re: Sheffield Wednesday - 12 point deduction

Seems arbitrary.

Perhaps they're thinking they don't want too many clubs being relegated in a single season by virtue of points deductions.

It's not good for the competition as it potentially leaves artificially strong teams in the third tier and keeps weaker teams in the second tier.
