That is also my understanding of the scenario. But you know what FNSW is like. I wouldn't bet on any outcome from FNSW. We've seen plenty of shenanigans come from them. It's not like a club can put on a brawl and walkaway scott free
Until there is an official outcome it's anyones guess what will happen...

Last match report for the season.
Parramatta FC are still a chance of staying in Premeier League (just read the FNSW twenty thirteen Competition structure but, do GDSFA want to.?)
Thanks for your input Captain, time to concentrate on the A League now.
Rockdale City Suns gave their retiring captain Pece Apolevski a fitting send off by coming from behind to defeat Parramatta FC 2-1 in the final round of the NSW Premier League at Melita Stadium on Sunday.
Apolevski’s teammates hoisted their captain onto their shoulders after the win which also gave the dreaded wooden spoon to Parramatta FC.
Parramatta looked like picking up the three-points after Aaron Peterson opened the scoring in the 7’ minute. But Rockdale did not die wondering with Sash Tirovski and Alan Kovacevic hitting back in the second-half for the win.
The match started at a slow pace with both sides testing each other in the middle of the park.
Rockdale had the first chance of the match in the 5’ minute. Giorgio Speranza took the open space in front of him before unleashing a fantastic shot from 25-yards which rattled the crossbar.
Despite the early chance Parramatta would open the scoring in the 7’ minute via Peterson. After Suns defender Askin Oygur headed the ball out Daniel Rezo stepped up and delivered a pin-point corner to the head of Peterson to give his side the lead.
The goal spurred Parramatta on as they kept the pressure on Rockdale with Rezo pulling the strings in the middle of the park.
Suns’ goalkeeper Ryan Norval saved his side from another great Rezo free kick in the 19’ minute, punching the cross away before the oncoming Akiyoshi Saito.
As the game wore on Rockdale got back into the game and almost equalised in the 25’ minute. Striker Sash Tirovski’s shot bounced off the chest of goalkeeper Matthew Nash but he was lucky enough to save Jason Naidovski’s follow up shot before Huseyin Jasli struck the ball well over the crossbar.
4’ minutes later, Rockdale had a second chance to equalise as Jasli’s corner was met well by the head of Oygur only for the ball to again sail over the target.
Parramatta continued to fight hard with Rezo again troubling the Rockdale goal with a free-kick in the 38’ minute.
On the stroke of half-time, Peterson had the chance to double his and his team’s lead but couldn’t control his shot as it went wide of the mark.
Rockdale came out of the sheds hungry in the second-half passing the ball around at a frantic pace but unable to get a strike on goal.
Parramatta quickly took control of the match again and in the 58’ minute Rezo almost made it 2-0 when a beautifully curled corner was headed off the line by Paul Kohler.
A minute later, Rezo crossed the ball in with Wandi Jajaw getting over his defender and heading the ball just wide of the right hand upright.
Despite the chances Rockdale struck back against the run of play in the 66’ minute. After a great run by Jasli the winger curt the ball back to Sash Tirovski who stepped past his defender before striking the ball just over Nash and into the net.
The goal opened the game up with both sides finding space all over the park working hard to take the lead.
In the 74’ minute Suns captain Pece Apolevski almost ended his career in spectacular fashion. After being put through on goal Apolevski’s shot was well saved by the oncoming Nash.
The goalkeeper would be picking the ball out of the back of the net from the resulting corner however as Alan Kovecevic’s strong header gave the visitors the 2-1 lead.
4’ minutes later, Parramatta FC had the Suns defence on the back foot as Peterson had another headed corner cleared off the goal line.
With minutes remaining, the home side through numbers forward in the hope of scoring an equaliser but it wasn’t to be as Rockdale held on for the 2-1 win.
Following the match Suns coach Mark Rudan said he was pleased his team fought hard to give their captain a winning end to his career:
“In the last four weeks we’ve played teams who have been struggling in the club championship and this one was the same for Parramatta,’’ he said.
“It was good to see the boys character come through. Big Alan who came on did well scoring the goal.
“The boys came out for Pece’s last game and it is a very emotional dressing room.
“It is a great way to finish off the season to come together for a win for Pece.’’
In the home dressing room, Parramatta FC coach Lee Sterrey said he was disappointed for his team who controlled most of the match:
“We controlled it for 60’ minutes really,’’ he said.
“We looked the more intense but all credit to Rockdale once they got that goal they lifted.
“It would have been better to finish the year off with a good three pointer at home.
“I’m feeling sorry for the boys because they have fought hard.’’
Parramatta FC 1 (Aaron Peterson 7’) Rockdale City Suns 2 (Sash Tirovski 66’, Alan Kovacevic 74’)
Parra FC have finished bottom of the club championship. Unfortunately they tick the relegation box for twenty thirteen.
United were 4 points clear of parra fc at the start of this round and picked up 6 points with the 20's winning.
Parra only picked up 4 points. 1 point for 18's and 3 points for a draw in the 20's.
So bye bye parra fc for twenty thirteen. Back to Super League next season.
The silliest thing parra done was to use 1st grade as a development squad instead of cementing up 1st grade with developed players. That's what the 20's are for.
Now all sterrey has done is develope them for super league. DOH! He wins the darwin award.
Sydney united were deducted points for playing ineligible players and are below Parra FC on the club championship. Either way with the new restructures, the impact of club championship on who gets into Elite 1 (PL) is not as much as it was in the previous years. I understand that ther are at least 5 SL clubs applying for Elite 1. One of the biggest component is having a complaint stadium and finances and Parra stands a good chance on both fronts. Although i'm not too happy about where the money for the 1sts is coming from.

There is an anomoly or error of points tally with respect to Sydney United's Under 18's points tally. According the PDF document Parra FC are 2 point higher than SU58.
However the points tally calculates out that SU58 should have 6 more points than the PDF document shows. If so then Parra are bottom, if adjusted due to an infraction by SU58 then SU58 are bottom. I'm waiting confirmation from Troy on this error.
Either way Central Coast Mariners are in and bottom of the CC will be relegated regardless of criteria. 1 possibly 2 must make way for the new changes.
Parra are odds on gone. We will just have to wait until October 8th for verification.
Of course we respect your opinion no matter how stupid it is!
CB, The inconsistency is in the 18s points which i hear played ineligible players in a number of games.
There are 10 published criteria on selection into Elite 1 and club championship is not one of them. But again FNSW are known to say something and do something else. Apart from CCM and Tigers who came first in the SL, I know Sydney Univ. and the two Bankstown clubs have also applied (maybe more clubs too) for Elite 1 most of whom have good cases. There may be more than 2 clubs relegated from PL. As you said we will just have to wait a month or so to find out.
SL clubs believed to be applying (application date isn't till Sep 10) are Rams, Tigers, CCF (note its not CCM), Syd Uni, Berries, Lions and Mounties. Only CC perfectly meet the new ground crieria as they stand (Though actually maybe not, as I don't think they have a broadcasting position or medical room). Closest in terms of the amount they'd have to upgrade from a grounds perspective are Lions and Rams. in current PL, Wolves and Olympic don't mee ground criteria either. Tigers in conjuction with NSFA will be building a Blacktown like structure (3 fields, possibly 2 artifical, with grandstand etc) but that won't be completed until twenty fourteen. Will look to lease or groundshare in the meantime, which other clubs are likely to need to do as well.
CC didn't have a senior club this year and will be constructing their own, this will put them behind the 9-ball at least a little bit.
Note also that there is a note in the criteria that (and I can't rememebr the exact wording) 2012 placings 'may' be taken into consdieration, so they've already given themselves an out in terms of any controversial decisions they make in that regard.
Sydney United were deducted 6 points for playing the ineligible players which put them 1 point behind Parra FC. Sydney United appealed and the result was that the 6 point deduction was reversed to 4 points therefore putting them 1 point in front of Parra FC on the Club Championship.
Was at Parra Stadium last night - very dour game with WSW playing the ball around the back for long periods and not trying to come forward - their only goal was a fast transition from the back which caught Parra napping.
The other thing is that Parra stadium will be used for A-League games but doesn't comply with the new FNSW regulations in regards to stadiums. No covered benches, benches not 5m from the sideline - who drafted these again?
