Do you really think the players would be at all interested in anything the Chairman/club owner had to say as long as everything was being paid and all in their world was comfortable?
Eddie Davies was virtually an anonymous, silent owner, who seldom if ever communicated with the players. As long as the bills were paid nobody had any issues whatsoever.
It was only when the well started to run dry and Allardyce wasn't given the millions to buy star players that even was he even thought about by anyone!
Throw enough money at a problem and it tends to go away.
When the money is no longer there is when the problems really start.

Depends on if he acted illegally bringing the company's to insolvency, or acting illegally whilst the club/company's were insolvent.
