Terry Verdict Quotes

Here’s the latest from London:

From JT’s legal team:

“Mr. Terry is disappointed that the FA Regulatory Commission has reached a different conclusion to the clear not guilty verdict of a court of law. He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal.”

From The FA:

“The Football Association charged Mr Terry on Friday 27 July 2012 with using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards QPR’s Anton Ferdinand and which included a reference to colour and/or race contrary to FA Rule E3[2] in relation to the Queens Park Rangers FC versus Chelsea FC fixture at Loftus Road on 23 October 2011.

“The charge was the result of The FA’s long-standing investigation into this matter, which was placed on hold at the request of the Crown Prosecution Service and Mr Terry’s representatives pending the outcome of the criminal trial.

“A hearing took place from 24-27 September 2012 before an Independent Regulatory Commission of The FA to consider the charge.

“The decision of the Independent Regulatory Commission is as follows:

Mr Terry be suspended from all domestic club football until such time as Chelsea’s First Team have completed four competitive matches

Fined the sum of £220,000

“The Independent Regulatory Commission will provide written reasons for its decision in due course. Mr Terry has the right to appeal the decision of the Independent Regulatory Commission to an Appeal Board. An appeal must be lodged within 14 days from receipt of the written reasons for the decision.

“The penalty is suspended until after the outcome of any appeal, or the time for appealing expires, or should Mr Terry decide not to appeal. The reason for this is to ensure that the penalty does not take effect before any appeal so that Mr Terry has an effective right of appeal.”

I am not going to personally opine on this just yet. Let’s see what happens with John’s request for the full written details and whether he appeals. He has 14 days to lodge the appeal.

    Have to agree with Samuel Smith (above)
    Just goes to confirm that the FA now believe they can elevate their judicial augments to that above British law.
    Perhaps its time for them to move to the next level and invite Sepp Blatter to become an honorary member.
    As it is; after 61 years, its time for this England supporter to join the growing masses that put club before country. Next world cup I’ll be cheering on Brazil and Spain!!!!!!!!
