Surely those calling for this must realize that integrity of a sporting kind is no different from normal integrity.

If we are guilty of these charges and in turn need to be punished then integrity needs to be applied across the board.

We should be punished either within the existing punishment laid down in the rule books or as some fans say sent to the third division without fear of further punishment.

However often we hear that sporting integrity must be at the forefront of everything, what about plain old integrity, where do the other chairman sit with us being punished properly and being banished to the third, surely anyone with integrity would agree that the punishment fits the crime and is applied accordingly and maintains integrity. No not in the instance they want us punished but also want to keep us for our revenue, does that show real integrity no it doesn't, so the next time some one spouts about integrity ask them where the integrity is in punishing a club but keeping them because you need their money.

They should at least have a bit of integrity and come out and say it, we really want to get rid of you but can't because we need you and the money you bring.

Now that would show some real honest integrity.

It all depends on what we're guilty of.

In the interests of clarity and we were to be found guilty do you think they will act with integrity.
