what is the problem with players being paid to play. why is it a problem to some. it breaks no rules or laws. if Sth Hobt are to be believed and do not pay anyone, then it proves the point that it makes no difference. but it is surely up to each and every club to go the way they want. so to all those people banging on about player payments, get a life and grow up.

There's going to be more news about Olympia soon and I can't wait.
Basically everyone knows what has happened with the NDC and I have the punishment suits.


Men or Women? Have I missed something?

Who's just gone to Olympia from the NDC/ FFT

Why be so cryptic, if you know something just say so. Otherwise you're just making false accusations and I'm surprised Walter is giving you air

#29 no senior players get compensated at the tropicana? How many players that have gone through your youth setup played Saturday night?



Two different issues. Ask yourself the same question. At the same time tell us what the average age is of Beachside senior team and remind yourself that you lost.

Knights literally paid thousands and thousands of dollars to win the summer cup and championship this year, and they still needed and own goal to clinch the league.

Don't get too cocky.
