New face of the FAI?


A chara, – As a regular attendee at my kids’ soccer matches, it is sad to see officials being abused; helicopter parents, sideline, coaching kids – telling them to do something that make no sense; and over-competitive coaches who shout angrily at people half their size.

I really don’t care who runs the FAI but I would suggest to Minister for Sport Shane Ross that funding be withheld from any sporting organisation unless it can actively demonstrate that pernicious issues are adequately addressed. –  Is mise,
