  1. That's it?!? Such a short statement from the PFF. They didn't even officially declare that Scott Cooper is being put in charge whether it's as interim or permanently.

  2. Based on the Belfast Telegraph newpaper Terry Bucher pulled out of the deal with the PFF because he had misgivings about the systems in place. Butcher’s statement was spot on without a doubt. Without an effective system in place I agree it will be very difficult for him or anyone else to achieve his goals.
