To be completely fair we would feel hard done by in either Peterborough or Tranmere's situation. Doesn't mean I don't think its the right way for things to be resolved but I think it would be hard to swallow.

No doubt about that.
The unfair thing about this end to the season is the fact every team had a different run in. The points accrued to this point had been against different teams to one another. The table is only fair after the 46th match when every team has played every other club twice.
Stopping the season now just doesn't feel right, if we were in and around the playoff places it would feel very unfair.
Obviously. So you think it would be fairer to null and void?
Yes, with 9 or 10 games there are too many points to play for to predict how the table will have looked like after 46 games.
As an example last season in League 1, after 37 games of the four teams in the relegation places only one actually got relegated. Two of the teams that did get relegated were mid table at the point.
I can understand Tranmere’s point of view as the financial and career implications based on an arbitrary guess of what might happen is huge.

It seems the fairest of 2 unperfect systems. Home and away form is a factor of football that is well recognised and often discussed.

Weighted PPG means the EFL are predicting results which is not in the EFL rulebook. Ending the season early can be done as EFL rules state the season ends 'after the last game has been played'. Non weighted PPG makes no assumptions about future performance and basically ends the season as it is now.
