Apparently, David Sullivan only submitted an official complaint against Fulham’s team selection at Hull because he wanted to clarify the Premier League rules.

We have done this not because we have anything against Fulham but because the rules need clarification so we all know exactly what the rule means. I think it’s good that we will all have the question clarified by the Premier League, so we all know where we stand for the future.

Perhaps I’m missing something but West Ham could have got the clarification in writing from the Premier League without launching a totally spurious claim against Fulham, surely?
