    A complete myth. The claims culture in Ireland, coupled with the free unregulated reign that the legal society have in this country, have made insurance a winning gamble for the grubby elements of Irish society.

    That's a fair point, but even with payouts in Ireland being 4 or 5 times the EU average, insurance companies have been posting year on year increased profit at record levels for at least the last half decade and probably a lot longer. That may not be the case this year but I dont think they will be crippled by covid related payouts. There will be a reduction in claims across the board due to lockdown that will mitigate against slowing growth. But yeah the sooner the Personal Injuries Commission makes a better mark the better! Though with it being made up of legal people it's like turkeys voting for Christmas.

    You almost never see whiplash injuries turn up to hospital appointments after a payout is awarded!!

    Id rather be relegated through withdrawing or be throw out, than push ahead with a league where we will accumulate debt. If prefer to be in the 1st division and be financially stable than go ahead with a financial package that isint 100% guaranteed for the club to break even.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    What happens if the government give the league the ok to go ahead but the clubs decide to cancel it? It will get messy with plenty of players looking for their contracted wages or at the least an agreement on their entitlements.
    Unfortunately this is completely uncharted territory and there is going to be some loss for clubs and players. The best outcome is to limit theses losses.

    Individual clubs are in different situations Yoss. Clubs will need to look after the club and the players as best they can given their individual scenarios and the advice given. A PC answer there but a true one all the same.

    Regarding 'the best outcome is to limit losses'. Absolutely. But in some clubs cases the best outcome might be to get relegated by withdrawing if the financial package is not acceptable to provide a debt free league run. That's the reality as hard as it might be to stomach.

    Players are going to lose in the end, if they and the PFAI go around suing LOI clubs then those clubs en-masse will go out of business and at best re-form as lower budget semi-pro or even amateur entities resulting in no prospect of the same level of professional employment for the same players. All this talk from the PFAI confirms to me they know they are screwed unless the taxpayer bails out the LOI which isn't happening
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians
