    Serious questions for the old board and JC to answer, both of whom since the new board came have been sniping from the wings towards the new board several times in the media, in my opinion. All gone quiet from them in recent times funnily enough now. Whatever about the VAT issue with Revenue, what the hell happened to the income earned from Europe and the gate receipts when Cork were getting 5/6k on average home attendances? The wage bill, even with JC having a big squad couldn't have eaten all that up in 18 months? We're talking around 2m quid or more at a conservative estimate?

    Also, I'm baffled at the sniping and shade being thrown at JO'B in the thread. You'd be hard pressed to find someone with better intentions towards both football in Cork and Irish football in general and his (amongst one or two notable others) skewering of the FAI in front of the Oireachtas was absolutely fantastic work. Who gives a fiddlers if he is or was a Shinner or otherwise.

    Another question on the VAT issue actually is why the settlement was published. Revenue guidelines on publication of settlements is that "Settlements are published when the extensive voluntary disclosure options are not availed of and the default arises because of careless or deliberate behaviour". Would Revenue have gone after Cork a bit harder as a result, with the impact we have seen?

    I read with interest that Trevor Hemmings, the property tycoon, has "expressed an interest in purchasing Turner’s Cross according to the secretary of the Munster Football Association, Ger Delaney."

    Property tycoon and League of Ireland ground - The clouds of people thinking there's an 'ulterior agenda' are gathering...

    As for an anti SF agenda its SF like to think there is an anti SF agenda! Pretty common to question how any socialist party will get the finances to fulfill their manifesto promises, hardly unique to SF. O'Brien and Munster were probably the 2 that pushed the FAI goons hardest at Oireachtas committee.

    Lets keep the thread on Topic. JO'B's leanings politically have nothing to do with the thread title.

    I'd be happy to see cork bailed out by anyone, we've all Been there, and it is the rebel county after all.
    That guy Hemmings is rooted in the Cork Community and massively wealthy, as benefactors or potential owners in full or part he looks a good bet.
