Northern media fail to grasp the basics of the eligibility issue

One Team In Ireland at related • 1 view
It's both bewildering and inexplicable how such an astounding level of confusion still reigns over the issue of player eligibility in spite of the fact that there are clear rules in place to govern it (see articles 15-18 of FIFA's Regulations Governing the Application of the Statutes), over which an independent judicial body, the Court of Arbitration for Sport, has provided ample clarification in a long, thorough and detailed judgment

You could maybe excuse the general public for not knowing any better – it's often fair to trust that those whose professional duty it is to report reliable facts and information to the masses actually know what they're talking about – but when supposedly serious Northern based journalists and media outlets are continually getting the basics of this issue so unfathomably wrong, it's simply unforgivable.
