Is it right that David Dein has such a high role in the F.A sign now

Conflicting interests in football

Why is it allowed that a chairman of Arsenal Football club in the Premier League is allowed to be vice-chairman of the Football Association. I am of course talking about David Dein. He is also a member of UEFA's executive committee, he clearly is a either a very talented man or or man with friends in high places. I am starting this petition to get David removed from the F.A's Board, I believe and many other people have said to me that it is wrong that a chair man of any football club should be on the board of the association which controls English football from the Premier League right down to sunday league football. How any one can say that there cant be a conflict in interest between the running of the league and the running of his own football club is beyond me, he will always want whats best for Arsenal as they pay the majority of his wages. there are two soultions to this problem, either they appoint Every chair man of the Permier league to the F.A board or they simply replace David Dein with some one who has no other interests in football other then being a supporter of a team which most people are anyway. I know that the Premier league chairmen meet every month at the F.A but having a Top premier league clubs chair man second at the helm to me is a disgrace.
Incidents that I have seen over the past few months to back up my argument include:-
1)Theo Walcott included in Sven Goran ericksson world cup sqaud when the 17 year old kid has not even played a First team game for his new club which just happens to be Arsenal. Co-incedence?
2)Tottenham Hotspur struck down by a suspicous bout of food poisioning just 24 hours before their biggest game in 15 years, Spurs ask for game to be put back by a day so that the players get a chance to recover, the F.A say that Spurs can only put the game back an hour. The medical staff at Tottenham know that this is pointless. Spurs need to match Arsenal's Result to be sure of finsihing 4th in the Premier League. Spurs lose two one while Arsenal win 4-2
3)Arsene Wenger not even approached for the England managers job. one of the top managers in the world who has proven himself at many levels across the world was not even considered for the prestigous hounour of being named as the England manager, Scolari is approached, Curbishley is approached, Allerdyce is approached, McClaren is approached and Eventually given Job.
Arsene Wenger is The Manager of Arsenal F.C.

I urge you to sign this petition so that the Football Association take notice of the Most important people in football, You the supporters, with out you the game of football would be nothing, its time we stood and demand for a fair and impartial appointment, Someone who does not have his fingers in any other pies.
Someone who will do whats best for footballand not for his other interests.

    obviously there is always going to be an unfair advantage to arsenal for as long as David Dein is at the FA. Get him out ASAP.

    I've always thought his position was dodgy, he needs to step down from arsenal or the FA. i dont believe he had any influence over the spurs game postponement though.

    I dunno. Well, is it? Probably takes too much of his mind away from Arsenal.
