Suspended points deduction for Bolton 18:40 - Nov 21 with 2370 viewsEastTownBlue

For failing to fufill two fixtures. £20,000 and £50,000 fines as well but half of which are also suspended.

How does this effect Peterborough's league position though?

With them looking much better recently I wonder when the legal challenges from the likes of Southend will come.

They were smart to actually make it an independent commission as the EFL would have been harpooned from some angle or another regardless of what conclusion they made. I do question the decision to punish a club financially though, I still think the fines should be tabled with the former owners rather than the club itself. Too many people treating club ownership as a bit of a personal playground, and it is always the fans that end up shouldering the brunt of the ball ache because of it.

Absolute nonsense for me, way too lenient.

Sets a dangerous precedent of picking and choosing when to play games.

Yep, ludicrous decision

I can understand people having sympathy for Bolton’s plight but of course you have to be punished on the pitch if you fail to fulfill a fixture.

Which was a second offence.

The scandal is not coming to a judgment on last season's earlier so they could get 2 in for the price of one on the suspended sentence side.

It does mean there is now a precedent if any other team wishes to do the same. They will know the sentence will be suspended or can be appealed.

All of a sudden the decision to go with an independent inquiry, the very thing i commended them for, seems like it was pointless- if you have an idea of a sanction to impose, just impose it and roll with the punches, otherwise if you want to remain impartial... remain impartial...

Madness and shows total weakness by league. Of course I feel for Bolton fans, but Doncaster particularly must be steaming. Even Peterbro fool has a point, as will Southend and co if Bolton stay up

Quite, they had a good opportunity to get through this with a bit of tutting and passing outrage. I feel this challenge will be turning this molehill into something a lot larger than it would have been otherwise.

I can see the logic behind the lenient suspended sentence and the fine but I think Doncaster should be given a 3-0 win for the match which was postponed without the EFL's permission. What happens now if Doncaster refuse to play it? They know the first strike will be a suspended points deduction because a precedence has been set.

I don't think failing to play one fixture is molehill, let alone two.

The comparison of the situation to a molehill is relative here, not quantitative.
