15 does sound harsh however they have broken the rules and the FA really need to set a precident which provents future occurrences. As a Nottingham Forest Fan I might have been compaigning for a bigger points deduction had we been in 3rd place in the table
Instead of setting a precedent with QPR, the FA needs to be fair. West Ham were not docked points in a tight relegation race after the Tevez/Mascherano issue. Therefore, I believe that heavy fines should be imposed, but we need these things to be decided on the field of play. Ideally, teams should be heavily fined; that would benefit the FA a lot more.
