    Seriously though, just make the decision about the licences. The justification will be plucked from thin air anyway.

    I guess Rovers will still have a B Team, whether it's playing in the LOI or not (?)

    Are u not supposed to have an underage section to be in the league? Will they do what bohs have done (call st kevins their underage section) by hooking up with a junior club?? Home farm or belvo would be candidates i guess.

    I actually can't believe they are even entertaining applications from more manufactured Dublin clubs. Fair enough, if an established Dublin schoolboy or intermediate club wants to make the step up and have a plan in place to do so I'd have no problem with that being considered. Any Sporting Fingal or Dublin City style nonsense should be dismissed out of hand. They aren't viable, and never will be viable. Applications from these type of spoofers need to be filed straight into the bin.

    This question and a similar comment previously in the thread really shows up the general perception of the FAI. Not knowing whether a proposed club's license application is a joke or not speaks volumes on the process and how administrators of the game are perceived and with a significant lack of belief in them making good decisions for the league and the sport. If it was a spoof it cause nervous laughter rather than any lols.

    Given that St Francis an established junior club with a LOI pedigree were "encouraged" to defer their application you would have to think that either
    a) Dublin County will be rejected
    b) St Francis will be rightly ****ed off.
    c) Next years (2022) division 1 will have applications from St Francis amongst others

    Especially in a season where clubs are effectively being funded by the Government, it makes no sense to be bringing in new ones. (Limerick I can allow obviously)

    It's been said before, we're badly in need of a proper pyramid system here. 100+ years we've been operating closed-shop systems (even in the Leinster Leagues) and the only sure way for clubs to move up is for another one to die, and the only sure way for clubs to move down is for them to die. It's daft.

    I still think its crazy that Rovers have a second team in the league. Something that is not on offer to any other club

    this Dublin County farce is a much bigger threat to the integrity to the League and to the First Division in particular than Rovers II.

    I saw mention on twitter (Dan O'Donnell I think) that the Extratime report might be a little previous in that they may have been approved for a licence but that's no guarantee that they'll be awarded a spot in the league.

    Fingers crossed that these carpetbaggers are shown the door

    Actually it was on offer to every club but rovers were the only one to take up the offer.
    Its a natural development path for our best academy kids in which we are investing a fortune.

    There's a fishing post if ever I saw one.
    You know well that what you've written isn't even remotely true.
    The league are struggling for well run, stable sides, so they are clearly happy to take on any club that shows an interest to trying to compete whilst showing basic, sound financial stability. Whether stab city 11 or sporting final v2.0 or B&I Utd or any of the other proposed entrants into the league survive or thrive we'll just have to wait and see, but the frankly laughable attitude towards Rovers II by some of the 1st division clubs, who have barely the arse in their trousers themselves, needs to be called out, for once and for all, imo.

    I agree with this and I'm a fan of a first division club. I think their reason was it would affect the integrity of the division! What integrity?

    Just need one "Bohs will be dominated by this new club" to win the sbgawa bingo.

    Whats wrong with my post?
    Genuine question about how they get in with no underage set up..
    Belvo and home farm have been left behind by the National league process hence i think they may be candidates.

    To put your mind at rest i dont think this lot will dominate anyone, bottom half of first division while trying to bring in usa based youngsters is the likely outcome.

    IMO considering their history in the LOI if they are admitting an extra capital based LOI side its either Home Farm or St Francis imo. I would be disgusted if DC would be allowed in. It would be another Sporting Fingal fiasco.
