    Incident at FAI

    Anyone hear anymore about the guy trying to set himself alight in FAI Offices in Merrion Square? Reports on eircom.net about it!

    Just got this from unison.ie

    A man who barricaded himself into FAI headquarters earlier this afternoon has given himself up.
    Maxi McAllister from Dundalk threatened to blow up the building on Merrion Square in Dublin, because Dundalk Football Club was not allowed into the new Irish Premiership.

    After speaking to the media from a window, he left the building and then doused himself in petrol, threatening at several stages to ignite himself with a lighter.

    He was then taken into Garda custody and removed from the scene in a Garda van.

    I had my hopes up that someone was actually willing to be pro active in making a serious bid to depose Stan.. Oh well.

    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    The FAI set up a sub-committee to decide what to do with their staff at the time - they came to the conclusion that sending them to the pub would do
