It doesn't put him up there with the Kray twins, but I remember a young Phil Hoadley getting nicked at Fort Neef station for evading the fare.
How on earth he got nicked for that I have no idea. In those days no one paid their fare at that station. You'd stick a few pennies into the collectors hand and that was it. Hence many the Jamaican rail worker retiring years later to an exotic abode in the Carribean. For his sins poor old Phil (who was a very underrated player) was sent to the Palace dumping ground of Brisbane Road.

There is a history of Palace Chairmen dipping into the club’s funds to feather their own nests.

It divides opinion for the Palace support, but Uncle Ron surely tops the list for ripping CPFC off, when you see how much his Holding Company benefited from the purchase, lease and eventual sale of Selhurst Park, the Mitcham Training Ground and Streete Court, to mention just three acquisitions amongst many that he simply would not have been able to complete without doing on the back of owning our club.

Bloye, for his very dubious dealings with Sainsbury’s over the Whitehorse Lane portion of the ground (which was originally a 25 year lease ) has brought long term problems for Palace, but in reality he just about covered what it cost him to over the 8 years he ran the club from 1972-1980, so not even a fraction of the millions Noades took away.

Goldberg and then Jordan lost far more than they put into the club, so hardly qualify as crooks, or even close to the duplicity of Bloye and Noades.

There is one other cadidate. Step forward Percy Harper, Chairman between 1939 to 1950 who was very much the prototype Uncle Ron.

Harper, by trade, ran Harper Automatics, based in Waddon, which made slot machines which were sold worldwide, but was known to be very brash and arrogant and had several run-ins with other Palace directors, Croydon Council and the eventually the law, but made sure he had buggered off to South Africa before allegations of his dodgy dealings came to light:



The new Palace Board, which included Arthur Wait, had taken over in 1950 and made the claims, which were obviously refuted by Harper and the former directors - but to older Palace fans, Harper, who often gave the Palace Supporters Club grief, he was always the villain of the piece.

Looks like Percy Harper takes some beating. An Uncle Ron before his time
...the chairman Percy Harper was suspended from football for allegedly bringing the game into disrepute after questioning the FA Council's capabilities, as well as those of the Football League's management committee, in an article published in the matchday programme*.

The suspension, along with punishments handed to two other directors, exposed a deep schism in the boardroom with another director, F. Broomfield, publicly contesting Harper's assertion that the club was in deep financial crisis. The chairman's reinstatement upon appeal forced Broomfield and Truett to resign. "I find it impossible to work with the present chairman," said Broomfield, with Harper's autocratic style subsequently drawing criticism from all sides.

Yet with the benefit of hindsight and compared with the humdrum existence which followed throughout the 1950s, they must have seemed exhilarating days. In peacetime Palace first plummeted under Harper's chairmanship and then stagnated under that of David Harris and Arthur Wait. The 1948-49 season was the worst the club had ever endured, with the better players steadily sold off and Jack Butler unable to restore order from the dug-out. The sense that Palace's fans had been offered false hope prevailed, not for the last time. Harper had held court at his home in Sanderstead in the first season after the conflict and pledged that the Glaziers would spend heavily to emerge from the doldrums as genuine challengers. The problem was that Harper, a visionary in some respects, had no means of finding the money he had promised.

In his autobiography Soccer Rebel, Jimmy Guthrie, a former Portsmouth favourite who had arrived as a player-coach in November 1946, wrote: "Harper had big ideas for Palace. He wanted to introduce speedway and greyhound racing at Selhurst, but the local residents petitioned against speedway because of the noise and the Football Association... refused to sanction the presence of greyhounds... He hit the newspaper headlines with stories that Palace would spend a million pounds to get into the First Division, but there was little money put on the line. He thought we should recruit players from amateur clubs, as this would cost only £100 for each player and the club he left. The idea was sound but, again, there was no money. Meanwhile, Harper was selling off our best players."

...Harper prompted yet more confusion by dismissing the manager, Irwin, just hours after spending an apparently pleasant evening in the company of the entire backroom staff at Selhurst Park...
* Supporters who purchased the sheet issued for the game against Luton Town on 30th September 1944 found the whole of the reverse taken up with a statement by chairman Percy Harper. He expressed his views on bringing greyhound racing to Selhurst Park, as well as criticising the entertainment tax the club had to pay. That got him into trouble with the Football League and the FA for considering it was time those incumbent made way for younger men.
In 1949, "after castigating the club's finances at the annual general meeting", Harper accepted an offer of £3,000 from a group of seven wealthy supporters to buy the club, and handed over control in 1950
