    Still Silver, they probably all paid up on the spot with fines like that. Disgracefully, that's only a week and a halfs (sorry quarter) wages for Cole.

    There is a very good chance that Cole is going to fight against this as being a restraint of trade.

    Quite frankly, if he does then he is a fool. He should grow up, accept his punishment and apologise to his teammates, manager and their fans.

    Can you imagine what will happen if he wins? This will make Bosman insignificant. Why do players need freedom to move at the end of their contract if they are able to move during their contract?

    He will destroy the game of football if he fights and wins this.

    It's difficult to know how to punish these players who do this kind of thing as most fines seem to be nothing to them. I did think that banning them for a few months might be the answer, but the problem is they still get their wages even when they are banned so that would mean them getting all that money for nothing, just like that greedy ungrateful git Rio Ferdinand !

    So all parties have decided to appeal. With the FA's recent record, that will only mean increased fines. Although I disagree with Cole appealing I think he may get away with the European law rubbish. But why Chelsea and Moron can't just take it on the chin, so it can be forgotten about is beyond me.

    I agree with all that , but I can talk to other potential employers , without the knowledge of my current employer , without any recriminations . Football should be a special case , all team sports should , but I cant see it going that way .

    I blame the agents. They make their big money when a player moves , and moves often (anelka ??) . Its been engineered by them . What better than getting a high profile player to move mid contract , when he is still in his prime. Rather than have to wait 'til the end of their contract

    Wouldn't be funny if the EU collapsed over something like Football contracts ;)

    Crap.. just crap... what happend to the days, when an player signed an 5 year contract, he stayed for 5 years!!!!... :(
    If Cole had asked for an transfer, then fair enough, but NOOOOOOOOOO.. he knows that if he did that, he would lose out on special signing-on fees etc... Greedy!!!... :lesson: if i was an manager, i would put cole's ass on the bench for a couple of months... that would do his ego an world of good... and his england chances!!

    Actually, like footballers, that depends on your contract. In some fields if you are caught 'doing a cole' you will be escorted off the premises, fired, and held in breach of contract if you work for a direct rival. It's all in the small print............

    Quite agree. It will be reduced to a farce as greedy agents hawk their 'wares' to the highest bidder every time the manager dares not to play them, or someone even hints that they have money to burn.

    Wages will spiral out of control and clubs will go under.

    I notice the US has got sick of this "moneygoaround" and a leading NFL player got told to take a hike when he demanded the usual collosal wage increase. Can't see any prem manager having the guts to do that.

    Is that right ? I'd have thought if it was that simple it would be written into every footballers contract . Then we wouldn't be facing a "Cole Ruling" (can I copyright that :D )

    Methinks thats what this whole thing is about. If they win, then watch this space as contract law gets challenged in the English courts then Europe.

    Those greedy gits could put more than football in trouble.

    Exactly. It is quite common in the business world that after you leave your employment you can't work for a rival company for up to 6 months.

    And if players do win the right to break contracts, do they really imagine that right will be only one way? Woe betide the player who gets a serious injury with that sort of contract.

    Anyway... What exactly is Ashley Cole on? A slave? Oh, and not only is he a slave, he apparently believes he is seriously underpaid?

    On £27k per week?

    I think he really needs to take stock. He is a popular player. But if he goes through with this, his image will be very seriously damaged.

    :D Frankly, (nearly said 'modern' but I remember what they were like in the 70's & 80's), footballers are insanely greedy. £27,000 a week is slavery! Hell, stick the chains on! I'm in! ;)

    So called Gardening Leave .
    I know people that have been told to go home for the period of their notice .
    But it doesn't stop them from seeking out other employment in the first place .

    Why have rules about it (K3 or whatever) if its as simple as putting a clause in a contract saying you won't speak to another club 'til the last six months of that contract (as the rules currently state) .Probably 'cos its a "restiction of trade" to do that , and as such illegal .

    Don't misunderstand me , I believe that player should honour their contracts , I don't believe tapping up should be allowed . But everyone knows it goes on all the time .

    For European teams there is a Big shop window every 2 years . If a player has a good tournament , there is no better time to negotiate a deal for them. Not possible if said player is already with a big team . Utd or Arsenal are not going to sell to Chelsea if they don't have to , Same as Barca ro Real or AC to Inter
    Its all been engineered by the agents . ******* especially imho , as he seems to have the most money to spend , so to speak. Why else have a meeting so publicly , if not to break the system.

    As for Asley Cole being a slave :lease: . I hope he is nothing to do with that particular statement directly , he should be ashamed
