"We're bitterly disappointed that the panel rejected our appeal for a work permit for Juan. ... The criteria by which the panel should make work permit application decisions are well established and have been in place for some years … We are therefore left amazed that our application for a work permit for Juan has been rejected when you compare his talent and ability to players who have been granted a work permit on appeal in the past."
