Why isn't the UEFA super cup on that list? Does this mean every PL team that has played in that one off game breached L.9? Or do they get written approval each time they participate?

Pretty much every contract has an exit clause. You can't claim there was no intent just because of that.

The crime analogy is stupid as well. If you sign a contract to commit a criminal activity, they aren't going to let you off because you hadn't yet committed it. The punishment might be less severe, but you will still be trialled. You're clubs are all basically the Tiger King of football.

There is also this UEFA regulation which I missed off:

Article 49
Jurisdiction 1
UEFA shall have the sole jurisdiction to organise or abolish international competitions in Europe in which Member Associations and/or their clubs participate.

There are plenty of rules they can punish them for breaking. The fact is the authorities won't do it, through cowardice or through their own greed.

Yeah exactly think how many convicted terrorists would use the "but I didn't do anything yet" clause for plotting an attack. There are absolutely many cases of people being prosecuted for plotting to commit a crime/break rules.

Criminal law isn't relevant.

The biggest loser is Levy

I think the 6 clubs or individuals should be rewarded :


For bringing the football family together.

For getting the government to intervene and hopefully putting in place some sort of regultary body or law to prevent this type of behaviour from happening again.

For highlighting to everybody just how much Sky managed to start the GREED train in football by raising prices of tickets, prices of kits, and offering subscriptions to watch football meaning thousands of kids can't watch their team live on tv anymore.

and finally for exposing UEFA and FIFA for the true gangsters that they actually are.

Football on the pitch is still a beautiful game at times but off the pitch it is ugly as hell.

Yes, because plotting a terrorist attack is an offence within itself. Not only that, but many of the precursors (having weapons, constructing a bomb) are also crimes that people can be charged with even if they don't go through with an attempt.

If they punish the club's and in turn the fans, the owners will get even more grief and abuse than they are set for now.

News indicating even some of the top execs at some clubs had no idea they'd even agreed to join the league says it all really. The owners need punishment but fines won't work, as the club's income would be used. They need to enforce some sort of ownership requirements to protect fans in the future.
