After last weeks protests against Port Vale's banishment from the Football League, one of the leading protest groups 'The People's FA' have vowed to boycott the football league in their millions. Leader of The People's FA, World Famous Businessman and founder of SkyTV Rupert Murdoch said in a video statement to SkySportsNews yesterday, 'The way Port Vale were treated was disgusting. There was no solid proof of any match fixing on their behalf but the Football League still decided to go through with their decision to pull them out of their setup. I have already suspended all links with the Football League until further notice and hope that our millions of supporters follow suit in leaving The Football League completely in the dark. I am willing to buy out the current Football League Board if they made a statement leaving a possible price I would be paying. I will not see English Football die before my eyes.'

The Football League have refused to comment on the subject.
