Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses,
And all the king's men,
Couldn't put Humpty together again

That will be the appropriate way to describe FAM's decision to make minor changes to the M-League after such a hue and cry over the past three months. It was a royal command that initiated the changes in the first place but to be honest there is nothing positive that has come out of it.

The requirement to have deposits in FAM is nothing new, and while teams did this in the past, they had a tough time getting their money back from FAM after the ruling was scrapped. As so far as the deposit is concerned, it is a sham as all the states have to do is ask FAM to retain it from the subsidy they are to receive from FAM, so there goes that regulation.
