    Noise from Ministers that they want the FAI in front of the commitee again. Not sure what good it will do really.

    The media sources inside the FAI are revealing differening payouts of €200k, €300k, €400k UK Times, topped off with €500k Irish Times.
    I suppose that suggests there are many sources but only one true source or they are all having a guess (for a price).

    As Stu suggests the report is coming out soon and more dirt might be revealed, if so it would put Conway in even darker shades with this extravagant pay out figure, probably 374k the equivalent of 3 years wages on current salary contract.

    What a gob****e. "I didn't know." It was his ****ing job to ask, and he spent the time blowing smoke up Delaney's ass instead of following up on the red flags that had Delaney in front of him in the first place. But then, I doubt a political animal like himself operates all that differently from Delaney in the first place: patronage is everything.

    On the topic of JD, I recall a popular terrace chant over the years. It went, "J--- D------ is a ******, is a ******." Sometimes, crowdsourced opinions are insightful.

    The leopard never changes his spots...
    A management consulting company set up by former FAI chief executive John Delaney in the UK is set to be struck off within a week for failing to file any returns.

    Outperform Now, a firm dedicated to providing consulting support for sports figures, first incorporated in the UK in April 2020.

    Mr Delaney, who served as the FAI’s chief executive between 2005 and 2019, has been based in the UK since exiting the association amid a cloud of controversy regarding governance standards at the association.

    The 53-year-old’s new firm has been served with a compulsory gazette notice, an order for UK corporates which sees a company struck off the UK companies register, most typically for failing to file accounts or an annual confirmation statement.
    https://www.irishexaminer.com/news/arid-40326851.html

    As an aside, another former FAI bigwig, Bernard O'Byrne, now with Basketball Ireland, is in hot water for posting (and then deleting) 'Black Dives Matter' after Sterling's penalty against Denmark.

    FAI sure know how to select 'em!

    What do you mean a leopard never changes his spots? Failing to file a return is effectively saying you've nothing to return. It's just another way of winding up a company that's not made any money. It's fairly standard with companies house.

    Certainly for the CRO in Ireland, that's not true at all. If you want a voluntary strike-off of a dormant company, there's a proper way to do it. After all, how would you know if the company hasn't made any money if there's no returns made?

    What Bernard O'Byrne said is shockingly offensive. Just why is he still knocking around anyway? And in such a high profile role. For whatever reason, Ireland seems to produce more than its fair share of his sort I'm afraid.

    Is it though? I think you'd be a bit sensitive to find that "shockingly offensive". Ill advised for sure, especially for someone of his profile in sport, but a bit of perspective would do no harm here.

    Denigrating and trivialising the BLM movement a year after the historic George Floyd event and bringing Raheem Sterling's skin colour into the equation after a footballing incident, indeed implicitly judging and evaluating Sterling on the basis of his race - seeing his race first - is, I think, deeply offensive on a multitude of different levels. Would Kane, for example, have his racial background referenced in similar circumstances by the likes of O'Byrne?

    Ireland are, apparently, decades behind on this issue, as O'Byrne's attitude seems to show. He's a high-profile administrative figure. He should know better, and we should expect better.

    And there's nothing wrong with being 'sensitive' to the feelings of other people on the issue of race, in my view.

    I think you're reading far too much into what was simply a silly pun, to be quite honest.

    If the BLM movement survived the opportunistic looting and stealing we saw from too many (albeit a significant minority) of its protesters at the time, I think it can survive a stupid pun. People are far too quick to take offence on behalf of someone else these days (or pose irrelevant hypothetical questions - Kane didn't dive, and if someone said "Taking the Mick" or some other daft comment like that, I wouldn't give a ****e)

    The idea that O'Byrne speaks for an entire country is just bizarre. And I'm not sure how you'd describe his actions if he actually had said something shockingly offensive. You know there's far, far worse things he (or anyone) could have said.

    Bernard O'Byrne's comments don't really have anything to do with Delaney, other than they both used to work in the same place.
    If you want to discuss them, please use the politics/current affairs forum

    Correct and to add to your point its actually a possible disqualification offence ( 5 years )
