Hence FA and APL made it up as they went along. I feel that the tardiness (no pun) of FA and APL to decide what the "punishments" should be after the abandoned Christmas Derby tends to support my guess that there is or was no rule or set of rules to deal with such an event. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
