Not true. The ruling is whatever it is, but it can be challenged.

Can be appealed. But again that's a league process.

It might be possible to be taken into court - but I'd guess its pretty unlikely any club ever would - and unlikely a court would offer a remedy beyond financial compensation - which would take a long time to achieve.

All decisions can be appealed but then the EFL will invoke their rule on Frivolous Appeals. Who the fuck decides a team was being frivolous?

 

Section 10 https://www.efl.com/siteassets/efl-documents/efl-complaints-policy.pdf

Threaten to take them to court on their decision to allow cunterson the ownership in the first place.

I can’t see us getting a light touch. Think the generic thinking would be that if this goes unpunished then other clubs could do the same when the fixtures pile up. Liverpool at the moment could be an interesting development.

April 15 is a Champions' league fixture date.

On what grounds? He passed their test. They will argue they are simply organisers of the competition - not policemen protecting clubs' futures.

Development squad played Thursday

Friday night / Saturday morning, our senior pros decide they won't play v Brentford

BWFC make plans for the Dev Squad to play Brentford

EFL block this on the ground of "Youth Protection"

Game not rearranged for 3/4 days later, EFL say to play it a few days after season ends.

Brentford can't fulfill that order and are awarded the game.

Roll forward to Donny and by the above sequence of events, our Dev Squad can't fulfill a fixture.

No case to answer. Maybe a fine for not letting doncaster know sooner, but the EFL created this loophole when they stopped the brentford game.

You've nailed it. The EFL have sent their precedent.

I wouldn't trust them to run a bath......

I have felt for some time that the inordinate delay is because the tribunal simply cannot agree, in which case you may be right. We live in hope.

Or they take the line that the brentford situation was avoidable

It's not like a waterlogged pitch which can't be helped. Pay the players then they dont strike and the game goes ahead. 

Making sure that they got paid is solely the club's responsibility. They are not going to punish the players individually for striking so blame the club instead

Please don’t bring logic into an EFL argument
