The FAI strikes again fining Roddy E1500. I know Rodderick wouldn't have a big fan base but he's absolutely in the right here.

Ridiculous, the man is a spoofer of the highest order, but he speaks the truth here. The fact they are censoring him here just proves him right.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

The Rodster really is a genius. Criticizes the Fai, gets fined, receives some publicity, people fell sorry for him and everyone forgets the big spoofer is doing a terrible job at Waterford Utd and how bad he was at Derry City. LOLLOL

If the truth hurts, then it clearly pains those in Abbotstown charged with running our league. Roddy has made enemies throughout FAI officialdom for merely speaking the truth and when he once accused that body of treating the LOI as an inconvenience, the blazers closed rank and went on the offensive - in this case a hefty fine.

and so what if that is the case? He speaks the truth and the powers that be go all North Korea on it. That should be the one and only concern of any LOI supporter.

Do the clubs still have their barrister? Something needs to be done collectively about this

That's a good point. 
It's a nonsense that someone can be fined for giving their opinion. No one has been defamed here. He's not bringing the game into disrepute. 

Another example of the dictatorial reign of our Dear Leader JD.

LOI clubs must agree not to "defame" the FAI as part of the terms of registration into the league . That's what I've been told anyway .. Kim John Delaney !!!
l hear you are a racist now, father ?

I think most reasonable Blues fans would dispute that , money is tight & the panel generally is young & inexperienced so a gradual improvement is all we can ask for .

Back on topic , his comments are , of course , correct & the FAI's response has been not only draconian but they also smack of unwarranted censorship.

noun: disrepute
  1. the state of being held in low esteem by the public.

This state has applied to the FAI for many years and been self-inflicted.

 

Does anyone know which rule was used? Both of the below from the rulebook are wide open to interpretation..

I assume the divide and conquer bone throwing leadership approach means that a united voice has not emerged from the loi clubs.
 
Thats the only way forward without fear of individual sanction.
 
 

RULE 94. BRINGING THE GAME INTO DISREPUTE

Any Member or Participant who has brought the game of football or the FAI into disrepute by any means, written, verbal, by action or otherwise shall be sanctioned with a suspension and/or fine and/or a ban on performing any football related activity or other sanction deemed appropriate.

RULE 95. DISPARAGING COMMENTS AND/OR ACTIONS

1. Public comment and/or actions of the following nature may result in disciplinary sanction:

a) Comments and/or actions which are offensive or threatening in any way and/or;

b) Comments and/or actions causing damage to the game or the FAI or bringing the game or the FAI into disrepute and/or;

c) Unsubstantiated allegations or comments which question the integrity of any person or body or are disparaging in any way;

d) Publication of material which questions the integrity of any person or body or are disparaging in any way.

 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

"Perhaps the reason that they did not consider the worst, was because discussion of such cases would have cast suspicion on the planner as being a "saboteur". Paranoia was rampant throughout."

no, its the real world. criticise your employers or professional body in the media and let me know how you get on.
 
Roddy hadn't been in the press for ages, Roddy decides to get himself publicity. Roddv v the system. The fact that this man has done immeasurable damage to Irish football over the years is irrelevant of course...

You lot are utterly deluded if you think clubs will band together to defend Roddy's right to not have the rules apply to him.
