The FA have nothing to do with either West Ham or Leeds.
The Premier League dealt with West Ham, and the Football League deals with Leeds.
Don't get the two confused.
And the Premier and Football Leagues aren't ultimately governed by the FA?
Exactly what I was thinking - at the end of the day, surely the buck stops with the FA?
How Leeds (and indeed) have got away with this is an absolute disgrace. Money really has ruined the game, and I hope our set of supporters aren't the only ones to realise this.
It's sad to say it, but this game needs to implode at some point in the near future if we're to have any chance of it being returned to the 'people'.
Actually, they aren't anymore.
It used to be the FA Premier League, then the then 20 chairmen of PL decided to "disband" from it and form their own "governing body" and at the same time, the Football League followed suit. The FA still has the rights to disciplinary action in the League and FA Cup (hence why they dealt with Bury).
The FA has surprisingly little control over our leagues, just the national teams.
