    The good news here is that surely Sports Ireland funding will remain stopped until there's clear answers? That's the real stick here.

    How much can the Government do before FIFA step in?

    It's possible anyway.

    Not the question you asked but, hey, the FAI started it

    A legitimate question, and I'm sure the FAI argument will be that all these bids for underage tournaments - and the joint UK/Ireland World Cup bid, as fanciful as I think that is - will be put in jeopardy by such "interference". FIFA suspended Nigeria and Pakistan recently for fairly direct interference in the changing of FA leadership by government, but I'm not sure indirect interference for the same goal - by cutting off funding until the board is changed - would qualify as the same.

    Of course FIFA does nothing about other countries' blatant interference, like China. So who knows.

    Can you explain to me PS what the broad impact of this would be? The FAI has previous on letting these types of actions run their course and are quite happy to point the other way when blame is being apportioned. I can hear it now... "We appeared in front of the joint committee and answered the questions asked of us related to these affairs. Despite this, SI unilaterally decided to suspend our funding for these important initiatives - initiatives that have seen us blah blah blah cure cancer blah blah".

    My hunch in this is, and has been, that the Board of the FAI takes the fall on this due to the extremely obvious dereliction of their duties as corporate governors and Delaney - as usual - gets off scot free. The cutest of cute hoors.

    Sports Ireland give what - 2.5m a year in funding?

    That'd be a big hole in the budget of a company who apparently might be insolvent (though I increasingly don't believe that)

    2.5m fewer handouts for Delaney to give to his buddies potentially. Or you could cut the LoI's prize money I guess

    That’s what I’m getting at as I think those are the types of things that they would do. Cut funding accordingly to all sorts of programs and then blame SI. For that shower I think it’s a viable tactic at least in the short- to medium-term.

    The obvious question that nobody has asked is, why did the previous finance guy quit?

    What's left over after the LOI affiliation fees and fines are deducted from the (sponsors) prize money?

    The sponsors prize money (and tv fees if any) are plus figures I presume, minus figures are affiliation fees and fines?

    It used to be "we will answer those questions at the AGM." Then hold the AGM and never answer questions. Then afterwards, say "we already answered all those questions at the AGM."

    Replace AGM with PAC and they are good to go.

    Sorry; could have been clearer.

    I don't know the answer to your immediate question - but an estimate could be 300k affiliation, 50k fines and 500k prize money?

    But that doesn't mean prize money can drop as far as 350k (ie a saving of 150k). It could drop to nil

    Is this continuing tomorrow? I got a great kick out of watching the FAI squirm and would love for more tomorrow!

    I saw somewhere (one of the journalist Twitters I think) that the Oireachtas could ask to reconvene tomorrow, but that the FAI could refuse

    Well based on the impression they left today they would be a real piece of work if they did refuse to show up!
