Never on a Sunday?

I see that the IFA, which is the organisational body for soccer in the north, could be thrown out of FIFA if they continue to allow the disscriminatory "Never on a Sunday" rule to stay on their books. I'm glad to see that their hand is being forced by the powers that be. This rule is in clear contravention of the European Convention of Human Rights and must be scrapped immediately. It is disgraceful that such a rule should exist in this day and age. Clubs should be free to play when they wish without having the morals of fundemental Protestantism shoved down their throat. Nobody is forcing clubs to play on Sundays if they don't wish but it is right and proper that clubs should have the choice to if they feel that it would result in higher attendances and a better atmosphere at games.
