Say no to the Blackpool FC fine for fielding a weakened team
Blackpool FC have been found guilty of breaches of Rules B13 and E20 in relation to the team fielded by the club in its fixture against Aston Villa on 10th November 2010. As a result of the breach of rules Blackpool FC has been fined £25,000. The decision took into account teams fielded against West ham United on 13th November 2010 and in following matches. The board considered that a weakend team was also fielded against Southampton FC and Ian Holloways' comments concerning the team selected for the game. Blackpool FC now has 14 days to appeal! This petition is to the Premier League to question: 1) Whether when you are required to name a 25 man squad you should then be open to chastisement. 2) Whether a manager has the right to field his team in cup comeptitions or should be pushed into a team of the leagues' choice. 3) If an inability to field young players in the League actually helps the game on a National level with the growth of English players. Sign up if you believe that the FA Premier League are being unfair in the enforcement and consistency enforcement of this rule.
