Level terms: Sean Connor feels Institute have been treated badly by football chiefs

I have to say that of all the words - and there seems to have been several million of them - in the arguments and counter-arguments that brought about the embarrassing end to the Irish League season, I hadn't banked on a few from George Orwell.

Then again, an author who wasn't exactly a laugh a minute and loved a bit of gloom and even more doom would have probably relished being quoted by the biggest victims of the shenanigans of recent times.

Linfield are champions. Well done to them, over the 31 games of the season they were the best team and no one can argue with that - but that's about all we can agree on after, as Orwell may have said himself, we reached 'a peace that is no peace'.
