LO, You've forgotten Barwick. He has disappeared. I've been looking all over for him but he's not around - if anyone sees him let us know.
The previous CEO did go. D.J. said he should have given a long notice period of maybe three months but he went virtually overnight, another example of double standards but leaving that aside Mark Ives is even worse. He is the one who has made mistake after mistake and he definitely is not up to the job.
And why wait 8 weeks. We need to get sorting this out ASAP to get ready for next season, and of course there are pressing issues right now too.

I know people love attaching names to blame and it excites to have people removed from office - makes it much easier to comprehend and even better you can hold it against that individual for the rest of their lives, but the reality is the individuals themselves are a small part of the issue here.
These people have been involved in the fiasco of this season and are they not helping to keep the Bernstein report buried? Get a new board in THEN look to change the system in the future because this will take time.
Why do you think a new board will be as bad as the present one? I don't understand this logic.
Here’s a theory which might explain the fines...
Step 2 doesn’t matter to Ives and co but step 1 does and step 1 is still playing.
If Dover were not punished hard for the crime of halting their season then most likely another 7 or 8 clubs in Nat League step one would do likewise. These clubs have minimal chance of reaching the playoffs and are simply running up debts for no reason. They could wrap up and say “you never punished Dover so you can’t punish us” so at this point the league would become a farce.
So to follow this on, the clubs at step 2 have to be punished likewise, otherwise Dover could say “you never punished step 2 clubs so why punish us”
At step 1, bit by bit clubs will fall away from the play off race and as soon as they do they will simply coast to the end of the season because there is no relegation, but better this than stop playing as it keeps up the pretence of a proper competitive league. Which it won't be.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"
