Blackburn Rovers have been hit with a £100,000 fine from the Football Association for their poor disciplinary record during the 2006-2007 Season, following on from a poor record the season before.
Rovers were handed a suspended fine after 2005-2006 season, but after failing to show an acceptable improvement in their record last season this fine was slapped on Rovers (this fine will be music to some people's ears, with MANY believing that that is justice served on "Dirty Blackburn Rovers.") Of course Rovers deserved more than some of the cards handed out last season, but so many were handed out as a result of dissent at some shocking decisions, with it still my own personal opinion that previous reputations are still more than held against the club.
We would all agree that Rovers can be a physical side, but I can't agree with the opinion that they are over physical or even violent as has been the tag for so long. A few years back (definitely during the 2005-2006 season) Rovers did all they could to fight off (quite literally at times) relegation, but mud sticks and as hard as they try it can't be washed away. Personally I have gone past caring how people view Rovers, we know the truth and that is all that matters isn't it!!!
Bolton Wanderers were the only other Premier League side handed a fine, however, Chelsea, West Ham United and Wigan Athletic were sent letters of warning.
Here is a full list of the FA Punishments:
Blackburn: Fined £100,000 (including £70,000 suspended from 2005/06), with a further fine of £50,000 in place for the 2007/08 season.
Millwall: Fined £30,000 (including £20,000 suspended from 2005/06), with a suspended fine of £30,000 in place for 2007/08.
Chester: Fined £13,000 (including £10,000 suspended from 2005/06), with a suspended fine of £10,000 in place for 2007/08.
Barnet: Suspended fine of £5,000 from 2005/06 invoked, with a further £5,000 carried forward to 2007/08.
Bolton: Fined £20,000 (with a further £40,000 suspended)
