    Much bitching from Harps and Pats fans on Twitter. Greatest league in the World.

    Shane McEleney the player against whom the allegations stand, in that he was suspended but all dates were moved because of league extension but methinks once again Waterford failed to read the small print. Get Specsavers as yer sponsors next season!

    And here we were thinking that it was John Delaney's connection to Waterford that pushed them in to looking for legal technicalities to overturn results or just ignore rules that didnt suit.

    The new FAI board members are probably already in wtf have we taken on mode, and thats after staving of bankruptcy of the association!

    *What would have been the reason for pushing back the suspension? How it looks, ramifications of legal proceeding etc all aside, if a player is suspended it's punshing the player/club; without appeals to hold up the process its just sensible that the suspension is served for the next game in that competition if possible, or cup games/play-offs if the league schedule is finished. Maybe I am missing the obvious but whether the last round of games were played on a Sunday or delayed 24hrs, what's the thinking behind changing the suspension? Its grasping at straws by Waterford and they have form, but the player should have just serve the mandatory one game suspension during the next available game. Did the FAI over administrate something in LoI?? While 'legal team' is mentioned its 'registering a complaint' and so far not looking to change the result - testing the waters?

    I can't see how they'll succeed but not all that surprising. I can't imagine our committee will be too happy at the season being extended if this isn’t decided tomorrow.

    Donald Trump wouldn't have a look in with Waterford, petty vexatious BS.

    There should be no case to answer, but nothing would surprise me with the FAI. A decision would need to be made tomorrow though with the Playoff on Sunday

    Not for one minute did I think there was anything in this, but at same time I didn't hear it was formally dismissed?

    Maybe it didn't even get as far as a public response, given it was such a long shot? The playing of the play off game was probably the answer it was dead in the water.

    TBH I think this was just Waterford and Lee Power looking for a scapegoat for their failure, then Shels chanced their arm too. But at the end of the day it was just a complaint not an appeal

    Would have thought Shels would have had more of a chance, if they objected 2021 licences of the clubs who didn't pay their players during the lockdown.
