Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is no stranger to controversy...
It is claimed staff at Leeds have been instructed not to allow Sky Sports staff access to Elland Road, at the request of Massimo Cellino.
This meant crew could not set up as they normally would 24 hours ahead of the game, leaving plans for today's fixture with Derby in doubt.
Cellino is reportedly angry at repeated fixture changes made to the club's schedule at the behest of Sky, believing the club are being messed around.
The Mirror reported a Football League spokesperson saying: "The League has been made aware that Sky personnel have been unable to access Elland Road today as previously arranged.
“We have contacted Leeds United to remind the club of its obligations to our broadcast partner and to ask them for their observations.
“As yet, we have not received a response from anyone in authority at the club, but are hopeful that the matter can be resolved swiftly once the club does engage.”
Leeds are unbeaten in December and have a chance to go 10th with a win, so the timing of Cellino's reported decision is unfortunate.
His methods will divide opinion, but his anger at Sky is shared by head coach Steve Evans, who told the Yorkshire Post before Christmas that he felt the Football League would like to keep Leeds in the division, and making their schedule difficult was one way to ensure this.
Football League rules state that clubs must allow broadcasters access to their grounds, while it is also important to note that Cellino does not own the stadium, with Leeds only leaseholders.
Here is a look at how Leeds and Derby plans have reacted on Twitter to the reports...

I have criticised Sky for playing God with kick-off times this season, so it would be hypocritical to argue with Cellino's stance. #dcfc— Ian Redfern (@redfern_ian) December 28, 2015
I'm with Cellino on this one... Don't let them in, they stop showing us on TV. Cellino is the lesser of 2 evils in this case. #lufc— #BringBackBecchio (@BatesyLufc) December 28, 2015
Can Cellino just think about things logically for once? I'm pretty sure there's a much better way to protest than this— lauren (@laurinaaa_) December 28, 2015
Ah Cellino is going to put us straight back into this relegation dogfight ffs hello points deduction— Dan (@faketalesofdans) December 28, 2015
How can Cellino ban Sky from Elland Road when he doesn't even own it? #lufc— Oliver Williams (@oliver221993) December 28, 2015
