League React To CEO Programme Comments

  • Tue, Sep 06, 2005 @ 0:00

St Patrick's Athletic CEO Bernard O'Byrne today received a letter from the eircom League censuring him following recent comments in his programme column.

It seems that O'Byrne's criticism of the eircom League's marketing strategy has provoked some anger among the league's officals.

Speaking exclusively to stpatsfc.com, O'Byrne said,

"I'm amazed that the league have leapt into action such as this following some programme notes which were meant to be positive. We are working hard day to day to keep our club going and are seeking positive proaction from the eircom League,not this sort of reaction. I'm surpised they have had time to look through every clubs programme as there is a lot of work to be done."

The League are demanding that their letter, received by the CEO today, be reproduced in this coming Friday's matchday programme.

With the print deadline just tomorrow (Wednesday) O'Byrne has yet to decide whether to comply with their demands.

"I still feel my comments are valid and I will decide overnight whether to comply with the demand and print the letter. To be honest I feel the whole situation is bizarre."
