Football League To Decide Flavio's Fate

The Football League will meet next month to discuss the future of Queens Park Ranger co-owner Flavio Briatore.

His position centres around the Crashgate scandal in Formula One, in which he has been charged and found guilty for his involvement in Nelson Piquet Jnr's crash in Singapore.

He received an indefinite ban from Formula One from any action within the sport including driver management.

This puts him in direct violation of the 'Fit and Proper Person Test' which stipulates that an owner or prospective owner should not be "subject to a ban from a sports governing body relating to the administration of their sport."

The Football League will now meet to discuss his future in the game in light of this latest development in Formula One and whether he can remain chairman of QPR Holdings.

With rumours of Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal looking to increase his shareholding within the club in a bid to boost his PR - Flavio Briatore's reign at QPR could be coming to a tumultuous close.

complicated old world, things are never straight forward are they? Would you be upset to see him go?

I would personally yes, despite his undoubted problems, he has put us on an even-keel financially. And most of those that want shot of him are impatient and want everything yesterday. We were never going to spend the big money that they wanted, and when all is said and done, the ones cheering from the rooftops at his demise, won't be the ones with buckets in their hands when our club goes down the pan with him.

This is not so funny, you know. There is absolutely no guarantee that Mittal - or anyone else for that matter - will take up Briatore's shares. Nor is it a given that just coz he does, should he do so, he will "splash the cash" that everyone feels needs splashing. I'm not happy and, admittedly, am a little concerned over today's events :-(

Its a dificult time. For what he has done in F1 there is no excuse and part of me would be happy to see him go. The other part remembers the stability he has brought to the club so would see him go with some sadness. Once again the club I love would appear to have been plunged into an unstable future

lenny367: Of course he has done wrong in F1, show me a team that hasn't!! Mosley wanted his head (as I posted on another bit) and got it, while letting every other guilty party, Symonds aside, walk away scott free! As for your other part, along with Sandydl and Boxer's, herein lies the problem. Would the anti-FB boys like to return to the days of HMR&C forcing us to sell our best players, or go back to the fans collecting money in buckets just to pay the simplest of bills. For them, I offer an ancient chinese (I believe) quotation, "Be careful for what you wish for, for one day, it may come true"!
