The FA really have lost the plot on this one.

They're supposed to be supporters of grass roots football.

Two words in that article says it all really "European Union's Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) ruled in the FA's favour".

It is the FA that is to blame here, Swampy lad. Try looking at the bigger picture.

It's not up to the EU to think about grass roots football. IP is pretty straight forward. What a desperate grab that is.

Agreed. The FA should never have even brought the case to court but yet again it has been ruled in favour of the big cats thanks to our friends in Brusells.

Did I actually say anything about "Grass roots football" ?
No I mentioned that again something that isn't in the public's interest (the British public) to agree with the senile old farts at the FA was ruled AGAIN in favour of the fat cats by our friends in Brusells.
You mention desperate grab, try looking in the mirror. You are the one attempting desperate grabs at sly digs because something goes against your beloved EU.
I agree with Tinned, there is no point discussing fudge anything with you.

This would have happened with or without the EU. The EU is a moot point in this discussion.
