FFA says issues resolved with Jets owners

FFA says issues resolved with Jets owners

In a major about face, Football Federation Australia says it has resolved its differences with the owners of the Newcastle Jets just weeks after threatening legal action to keep the team in the A-League.
The A-League was plunged into turmoil last month when the FFA refused to allow the Hunter Sports Group _ headed by mining magnate Nathan Tinkler _ to hand back the Jets' license.
Tinkler's group had cited irreconcilable differences with the FFA as its reason for dropping the team.
However the FFA released a statement on Tuesday after talks between FFA chairman Frank Lowy and Tinkler saying they had "reaffirmed their commitment to working together for the good of the Newcastle Jets, the A-League and football in the Hunter Valley."
