Am I right in thinking the points deduction is suspended?

That's certainly how I read it.

Dover have announced they will refuse to pay their fine. It would appear their Chairman once to take on the board.

I fear the "powers that be" will give them a darn good kicking for refusing to bow down and lick their ostriches ( : :lol: ), but the very best of luck to them.

I think the Dover Chairman wants to make a stand, regardless of what outcome results.
A Dover fan launched a Just Giving page to raise the £40,000 fine. Launched 2 days ago - currently raised £1,445.

This could be a nice opportunity for Dover to crowdfund and go down the Ebbsfleet route.

A good idea would be to raise the money then say to the league ‘take it for yourselves or let us give it to charity instead’...that would really challenge the league...

I don't think they'd keep twice about keeping it!

There are still some in the world who have principals, and thus far Dover have stuck by theirs, so assuming they would keep it is a tad unfair, if the story unfolds that way by all means give them a darn good slating but until then a least give them the benefit of the doubt.

Not Dover. The National League.

While I do share a little sympathy for Dover, it's worth mentioning that their chairman James Parmenter was a director of the National League from 2015, resigning in February this year due to disagreements with the board.

He was a National League board member when grants mysteriously turned into loans...

I got the inpression that was why he resigned..... Wish I hadn't mentioned it now, It had cheered me up a bit thinking morals etc hadn't become obsolete... But as i look out of the window watching the hoards wandering down the the streets of Bath, social distancing a long gone action.....you are probably right, bloody humans,!
