The London DAILY MIRROR reported Dyke explained "why the FA decided not to take disciplinary action against Scudamore." Dyke: ''In terms of FA disciplinary policy we, as the FA, could have considered taking action had Mr. Scudamore's statements been made in the public arena. However our policy has always been that we do not consider something stated in a private email communication to amount to professional misconduct" (DAILY MIRROR, 5/14). The BBC reported anti-discriminatory group Football Against Racism In Europe Exec Dir Piara Powar tweeted, "The Scudamore saga highlights flimsy regulation. With government and opposition joining a Fifa member to raise concerns, the FA position looks like cowardice." FA Inclusion Advisory Board member Edward Lord said the FA's decision not to reprimand Scudamore was "worse than weak" (BBC, 5/14).
