By the way, can we finish this debate in BST not Weekend Standard Time. We both live in the UK (unless something worrying has happened to Cardiff) so it should not be difficult.

Yes fans could exploit it, but what would be the use in kicking out a new owner without giving them a reasonable chance to do anything. This would only give the club a bad reputation among potential owners and put them off a potential purchase. For someone as crucial as an owner I'm sure they would have to do something really bad to annoy the fans enough to warrant being ousted. Coventry were forced to move 35 miles away to Northampton by SISU, despite opposition from the start by practically everyone in the club, league, FA and city. As for the reference to Prescot, yes it was a very poor decision that shouldn't have happened, however he was not a part of the club and was an external factor. Many football owners are good, I agree, but you look at how many ex-premiership clubs are in the lower leagues, Coventry, Portsmouth, Sheffield United, Blackpool, Preston. Many of these were top premiership clubs hindered by mismanagement and financial woes, especially Pompey and Coventry. All have big enough potential fan bases to support a premiership team, but the people at the top let the clubs down. 
Yes, and it is a decision not to be taken lightly, and I would hope if something like what I'm suggesting were to ever be put in place it would only be used in dire circumstances (e.g. Coventry and Pompey) and not taken lightly. Its like that old saying, desperate times call for desperate measures.
Sorry about the timing thingy, this was my first debate, so I'm still getting used to the layout and setup, anyway I think this is my last entry, so thank you for debating with me :)
PRO has correctly stated that the exploit will always put off future owners . But couldn't there be false fans, and glory hunters. Imagine at the end of this season 'Roman Abramovich is ousted - by Arsenal fans. There is honestly no more to say. A board would have ousted SISU exactly in the same way fans would, yet without gaining any kind of bad reputation for ousting owners.
Thank you for debating with me and regardless of method, I hope one day for SISU to be " thing of the past.
