The FA are getting far too big for their boots. Players sent off will be banned and receive a fine. Will the FA charge the referee for failing to ensure the players under his control did not behave themselves? Of course not, no money to be made there.
But being always on the look out to charge clubs for any reason they can, gives the FA access to large sums of money through imposing huge fines.
It's a shame an alternative football association can't be set up, and all league clubs leave this FA to join it.

After the defeat to Sunderland on Saturday Newcastle United should be charged with having 11 men on the pitch masquerading as professional footballers.
