Saracens Salary Cap Punishment

Post by Systemsguy » Tue Nov 05, 2019 12:22 pm

Sarries have been docked 35 points and a £5M fine in what could be called "creative accounting"...

QPR and FFP ? Pah... A lot more dosh lost on our behalf but that points deduction!

They have to win five games with bonus points just to get back to -1 :shock:

I suppose having the titles removed that they won under that creative accounting period will be an option if they appeal?
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

They at least successfully bought titles with their money.....

I suspect the European titles will be safe as I don't think the French clubs have a salary cap...

...stripping them of all the titles that they won by cheating the rules would show at least some sort of justice.....and give a strong example for the future...
