Not exactly revelatory.  Think it's hard to level culpability at one individual as well as some have, culture of that ilk tends to fester over years and across tenures.

I don't dislike any of the individuals involved, like many seem to, and would regard the punishments meted out as being far greater than those I would expect for such an offence given previous precedence.

I get the point of the review, you level the blame at a few individuals then claim that you've taken steps to prevent a repeat and you're right nothing will change.  If you point out the endemic nature of the cultural misgivings of an organisation, you forcibly demonstrate a need for change.  The next step is to convince the people that they need that change and all the ramifications that come with it.  Ultimately, CA has to take some of the blame for what happened as they are complicit in the scandal, and accountable for their players.  What this does do, is remove some of the blame from the perpetrators, and paves the way for early reinstatement to the national team.  Such a step was probably deemed necessary as their punishment was undoubtedly excessive given the nature of their misdemeanour.

The sanctions have not changed. There is no early reinstatement etc with the release of this report.
