Points Mean Prizes

Depending on your view of West Ham United, the FA’s decision to fine them £5.5m is either a rare case of them calling a disciplinary decision correctly or they fudged it to avoid making a difficult decision. On the one hand, £5.5m is a lot of money. It’s out of the league of the fines…
