But the state should also not presume that old platitudes about how the economy works still hold. But it does make sector-specific interventions,The regulatory commission of the Indian Super League (ISL) came down hard on FC Goa on Thursday for their unsporting behaviour following defeat to Chennaiyin FC in last season’s ISL final They had alleged that Chennai’s Brazilian star Elano Blumer had “assaulted” Salgaocar after the final whistle – allegations that the Chennaiyin camp have always vehemently refused.The Goan camp threatened to boycott the ceremony in the absence of an Elano apology which never arrived Instead Salgaocar took matters into his own hands and lodged an FIR with the local police for assault to have the Brazilian immediately arrested Additionally he made comments which implied the match had been fixed in favour of Chennai File photo of the FC Goa players ISL For this FC Goa fully deserved to be heavily sanctioned As far as unsporting actions go to take football out of its sporting jurisdiction probably tops most lists It made headlines across India and the world It brought the league into disrepute and overshadowed a fantastic ISL final It also left the organisers embarrassed on the final day No wonder then they appear to be in no mood to forget and forgive and are hell-bent on making an example out of the Goan franchise Indian football has largely been a safe haven for defaulters with a lenient and inconsistent approach but the ISL is proving to be a different ball game altogether Here you stand in line or risk suffering Even Dempo who is a vice-president at the All India Football Federation (AIFF) hasn’t been spared It is only the severity of the sentence that will be a matter of great debate Was a three-fold punishment so harsh on all three counts necessary If the verdict withstands the appeal (assuming Goa appeal which is almost always the case) it will deal a fatal blow to the franchise’s 2016 ISL campaign While the owners were justifiably reprimanded the monetary fine is hugely significant too To put things into perspective the fine itself is more than half the entire season’s player salary cap of Rs 20 crores Goa’s purchasing power will be considerably reduced for at least a season Add to all this a 15-point deduction in an eight-team league which has only 42 points to play for in a season and this could well be one of the most severe bans to be dished out to a club anywhere in the world Fifteen points is essentially a five-game ban for the club With the ISL being in its nascent stages and in need of safeguarding its own interests it could not afford to ban a franchise from playing for a season or even a few matches Points deduction was a smarter alternative However there are two ways to look at a 15-point penalty First monetary punishments are usually manageable and do not really hit a club at its heart (even if an 11-crore fine does make an impact) We frequently sit in our homes demanding a points deduction or say a transfer ban – just something anything that directly affects a disciplined club’s on-field progress Because that’s where it really hurts By this reasoning a points penalty is justified It covers all bases and truly penalises a club Then there is the other viewpoint: Do FC Goa really need to be docked points for actions that however against the spirit of the game did not directly affect the outcome of any match during the course of the season Clubs across the world are often docked points for fielding an ineligible player (proportional to the number of games affected by the presence of that player) or for a match being abandoned due to crowd trouble (only for that particular match) or even in the rarest of cases for fixing matches As a result of Italian Serie A’s infamous Calciopoli match-fixing scandal a decade ago Juventus were relegated to a lower league and started the season with a 17-point penalty AC Milan stayed in the top division and began with an eight-point penalty while Fiorentina and Lazio were docked 19 and 12 points respectively at the start of the following season When you put this into context Goa’s 15-point deduction appears to be extremely harsh An educated guess is that the club will challenge the verdict which should significantly lessen the number of points docked if not also the monetary fine As it stands the verdict also smacks of a feeling of retribution Which isn’t a surprise considering how FC Goa had been at loggerheads with the ISL organisers well before the final According to well-placed sources at the club the protest on the night of the final was simply the tipping point of a growing dissent against the organisers During the course of the season Goan club officials had felt aggrieved with the standard of refereeing in certain matches and on being denied adequate training facilities during away trips to Delhi and Kolkata After registering their complaints they were not satisfied with the ISL governing body’s response Furthermore it didn’t help matters that FC Goa’s Brazilian manager Zico spoke freely against the league’s policy of allowing six foreigners in the playing XI and on how he thought the ISL in its current format would not be beneficial to Indian football On the night of the final the source confirms the Goan camp was upset with how poorly they were treated on their own turf (the final was played at Goa’s Fatorda Stadium) as ISL personnel took control of the venue and asserted their authority It started well before the match when a private vehicle of co-owner Dattaraj Salgaocar was not allowed in the usual designated parking area and reached a climax when ISL’s security guards unable to recognise co-owner Shrinivas Dempo manhandled him to stop him from entering the field for the ceremony Then came the alleged Elano incident followed by allegations of match-fixing Earlier this week a day before the verdict news channel NDTV released exclusive post-match footage that captures Goan officials heckling the Brazilian midfielder rather than the other way around However FC Goa fumed at the “suspicious” timing of the video which you can’t deny and alleged that the footage is “doctored” and “edited” which is debatable Either way the footage leak five months on suggests that there is more than just an ordinary verdict in play here We are likely to hear a lot of this case in months to come
