    Would that be the same atmosphere that also led to the demise of Sporting Fingal, Dublin City, Kildare County.....?

    Gavin would blame the clubs for that one. Good things happen. FAI good. Bad things happen. Clubs fault. Fran Gavin's modus operandi

    Mark Scanlon is the new LOI Director. A Shamrock Rovers man.

    Seems Gavin is staying on at the FAI though.

    And brokered the hiring of the Aviva to Dundalk in Aug 2016 at not too cheap rate, to play Warsaw in CL play off.

    This should be interesting, Dundalk have been quite vocal recently on 'admin matters' within the league, now no reason he should not be expected to work impartial, but I`m sure DFC won't be found wanting if they see he is not wearing his league hat, which I'm sure he will of course.

    However it can't be first time in football (its not) a senior appointment has gone in not being a fan of one participating club, I think a example might be Rick Parry, Liverpool fan, PL set up era 1992?

    Unless there's a reason why anyone might think he can't operate impartially I'd say it's a positive if he's a fan of the league.

    Undoubtedly people will think it no matter how impartial he is, even if he does the old home town ref thing where he is harder on his club to prove impartiality. Hopefully there wont be any polar opposite issues that are for or against SRFC. It should on balance be a good thing in having a fan of the league on board and it not seen by him as some poison chalice or FAI style punishment role.

    I don't know what powers people think the league director has that could result in them being able to favour one club over another. They don't deal with anything that impacts clubs on a club by club basis it's all league body as a whole stuff
