And what will they do? Waste time?

They can't find evidence for the game in the past and no amount of statistical analysis is enough for any conclusive decision.

Maybe they come up with regulations and methods for addressing the problem.

And exactly whose time are they going to waste, yours?

Title suggested that their scope of investigation is limited, if they're revamping the fair play rules and guidelines for everyone, that's extremely good.

If they're just going to do some statistical analysis, then it's pointless because it can't be conclusive.
