Harry Redknapp 2, bye bye Fabio
Can we talk now?
All this talk about prejudicing a case by discussing it got me thinking about the John Terry case.
My personal view is that Fabio was right, and the FA has shown itself to be run by incompetent buffoons (yet again!). They are the real problem with English football, not the managers/players.
This got me thinking about John Terry: by taking the action they did they could be accused of prejudicing JT’s right to a fair trial by their apparent presumption of guilt?
Surely the best course would have been to suspend him pending the outcome, as is the usual method of dealing with such things.
Speaks volume on the state of things that an Italian resigns on a point of principal in respect of the ancient English tenet of innocent until proven guilty!
The FA seem to be the worst sort of tyranny, endlessly seeking to silence the voices of dissent as evidenced by the trail of fines and punishments for daring to thin a referee may have got a decision wrong.
