The Chairman of Gold Coast United F.C Prof Clive Palmer expressed his full confidence and satisfaction in the disciplinary committee of the Football Federation of Australia (FFA).

“The FFA inquiry procedure to grant all players a hearing before imposing any sanctions following a review of games by the match review committee was a greatly improved system and fair to all players," Mr Palmer said.

“I am impressed by the independence and impartiality of the FFA disciplinary committee and the integrity of the employees of the FFA that deal with disciplinary procedures.

"The fact that the FFA and its officers have taken such a keen interest in this matter demonstrates that they have the overall interest of the players and the game at heart.

"The Australian football community can be well satisfied that the disciplinary committee will only cite players set punishments that are appropriate after a hearing which allows for a proper defense by any aggrieved player”.
