Further FA Inconsistencies (Lies)

Further FA Inconsistencies (Lies)

After a brief chat with a Vital Arsenal colleague today, it was decided that it was time to stop trying to wind up other fans and concentrate on articles with Arsenal at their heart, but upon my arrival home from work this evening I saw the latest load of bullshit from the FA, and just had to comment.

A statement was issued saying none of the Chelsea players who involved in 'restraining' (yeah right) the Tottenham fan would not face any disciplinary action.

'We have looked at all the available video footage and there will be no formal disciplinary action against any players,'

Obviously not all the footage, because surely a player who kicks a member of public (no matter what he has done) should be held accountable for his actions.

The following clip is taken from the live broadcast on the BBC of the Tottenham vs Chelsea FA Cup quarter final.

With the aid of SkyPlus, not any fancy video technology, it's clear to see at least two Chelsea players putting the boot in on the so called fan.

I'm sorry to harp on about it, but after the Carling Cup final, Manu Adebayor was banned for four matches despite the FA not having any footage what so ever of the player committing the crimes they accused him of, and now, with footage readily available (so much so it's posted all over the internet) the FA tell blatant lies (once again) and the Chelsea players get off scott free.

The FA are killing our game with their inconsistencies.

I'm trying not to sound like a bitter old bugger, but it's so obvious to anyone with eyes. It's really disheartening that a group with such power in our game can be so blatantly corrupt.

disgusting statement! they have ZERO legitimacy to ban or charge anyone!

as i posted on the forum the other day, this highlights the discrepencies of the FA. they bury their heads in the sand, and seem to be unwilling/unwanting to adopt the hardline across the board. Witness the footage in the youtube links i posted in the forum, you can quite clearly see the chelski players rucking their feet into the area where the fan is. AND the fan got off. Neither are correct. »»Arsene Knows««

Carragher was sent off for throwing a coin at the crowd after being provoked by the coin initially hitting him, whats the difference? The fear of Chelsea perhaps? The fact the FA want to see a title race thats exciting and banning any chelsea players would harm the climax to the premiership season therefore harming the FA's product (Drogba not being banned after slapping Cesc would add to these theories). I dont know but I do know it stinks and that Cashley is the most cowardly footballer that I can remember.

The fact that the Chelsea players know they are doing wrong and are having sly digs at this geezer makes it all the more disturbing. Slimey *****ers.

The fan (and others) had no right coming on the pitch we all know this but the four, maybe five Chelsea players should not get away with having nothing done to them. I know the fan didn't come onto the pitch and he threw himself into the crowd but Cantona got a nine month ban (or something like that) for his assult on the Crystal Palace fan. This is a different scenario but they've still put the boot in. You can argue that he deserved it but even so the FA have got to start playing fair right along the board EVERYONE should be under the same rules, the FA SHOULDN'T be bending them if/when they see fit.

spot on Hughes. The FA is shaming English football, I have no words to describe this. After watching the vid over and over again one word came up in my head: COWARDS!! The lot of them. That kid had no right to be there, but they (the Chel$ki COWARDS), led by the vicious Ca$hley, did something despicable that will go unpunished. This is unheard of in the modern societies, reminds me of the justice I read about that happened way back n medieval times. Even then they had honour.
22/03/2007 02:34:00
wingers all the lads who posted the video deserve credit as well - the whole world can see the wrongdoings... is this only because ENGLAND is playing so they do not disturb the COWARDS within?
