LiquidAK Posted May 20, 2009 Share Posted May 20, 2009 http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/football/article2438004.ece At the centre of the debate, which threatens to turn into a war, is paragraph E20 of the Premier League rules. It states: “In every league match, each participating club should field a full-strength team.” That sentence is the core of what protects the richest and most successful club football competition in the world from being accused of corruption. Yes I realise the source isn't the most reliable, but I think it raises an interesting topic. Should Manchester United field a less than stellar team (to put it mildly), would we have the right to sue for compensation? It does seem to directly break that rule, but then teams have always rested players, and it's never led to a case being brought against them (at least not to my knowledge). Personally I think we should at least try, if we do go down an extra cash would help counter the massive loss of revenue. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
