It was then agreed by the members that the First Vice President will assume the function of the President in the absence of Johns’ two year ban. We all heard that John will be appealing the ban, so until that time, the first vice president will assume the functions of the President,” he explained.John says he is appealing FIFA’s decision and the matter is already in the hands of his lawyers.Meantime the Board says while it may want to support John in his appeal, it is against the constitution of the organization.Secretary of the DFA Philip White said “it is the prerogative of John to launch an appeal. The board cannot openly say that they support John because this is an infringement on the FIFA Code of Conduct,”.Meantime moments after FIFA released its decision to ban Mr John, several individuals called for the resignation of the DFA Board members.Two such calls came from former Football Referee Ibrahim Brohim and Veteran Sports Commentator St. Havis Shillingford.He says for several years football in Dominica has been stagnant.“The very first thing that should occur is that the football executive should resign because the last 15 years, Dominica’s football has not been getting anywhere. It has been getting worst and fifteen years is a long time. Dominica should start with a slate. Clear the air, clear the slate and get people who know about football to run the affairs,” he said.Meantime the incoming President Ettiene said all is well at the DFA.He told Tuesday’s press conference that the board is very active and functional and the football business will continue as normal.“Football matters will carry on as planned; the 2011/12 season is in operation and we will carry on as the plan goes on. In a nutshell, everything is order at the DFA. Things are rolling as planned and with the help of the Board, we will continue to move this beautiful sport of football forward,” he said.Dominica Vibes News
McIlroy drove into the water on the par-four 11th and then hit his approach into the creek short of the green as well, the world number two then leaning on the offending iron so hard he bent the shaft out of shape. That meant he could not use the club for the rest of the round as he ran up a quadruple-bogey eight on the hole and a closing 76 to finish 14 over par. “I just hit a bad tee shot into the creek there and what you don’t want to do as a golfer is follow one mistake with another, and that’s what I did,” McIlroy said. “And obviously I got a bit frustrated there. “It’s a hole that you want to try to take advantage of. It’s a hole that you want to at least give yourself a birdie chance and you walk off with a quad and it’s not very good. “I think that’s what this tournament does to you. At one point or another it’s got the better of you, and it definitely did this weekend. Press Association Rory McIlroy admitted frustration had got the better of him as he damaged one of his clubs in the final round of the US Open at Merion.
