At last, a good proposal for the Greek soccer

As the owner of opap, he is more than welcome to distribute 40% of that revenue as well. Vintage tigri mangies with other people's money.

He may be right or wrong BUT atleast he is making suggestions while others fix matches and fill their pockets.

 

It SHOULD NOT be left to owners of clubs to improve the league, this is EPO and the Super League job to do and what have they done? F*** all as they seem to enjoy having a mediocre league where we are laughed at by the rest of the world.

One of the many problems of Greek soccer is the fact that the last 60+ years only four teams  (and Larisa after a mini civil war) have won a championship.  Recently, minus a short interval when PAO spent real money and then went bankrupt, OSFP dominated the league year after year.  These championships are becoming boring; we could as well watch the Christians fight (so to speak) the lions.  If one looks at other leagues, one would see models that try to to make sure that the differences between the clubs remain small.  E.g.,

 

1) In the USA (la fuente de toda sabiduria) the professional leagues impose upper/lower limits to the money that every team in the league can/must spend.

 

2) As of 2013 the Bundesliga adopted rules concerning income sharing from advertising.  The new rules aim to help financially the teams that need infusions of moolah in order to remain competitive.

 

Who, with a working mind, would like to follow a championship such that the outcome is known before the season starts?  And what would be the value of a championship won against teams that could not afford to be competitive?

Why did Tiger refuse to say he owned AEK at the meeting earlier this week. Is it because he is not legally allowed to own AEK and own at the same the time the largest gambling company in the EU? If that is indeed the case - and he did make his fortune through selling smuggled heating fuel which he saw jail for, I am not sure he should be commenting at all. All these club owners are as corrupt as the next one..

 

Everyone says we need new refs - foreign refs.. as if those foreign refs cant be bribed..

 

Everyone says we need a new EPO.. like a new Greek EPO will suddenly be better than the last one..

 

Everyone says we need new stadia - when we can't even control the fans in the older ones...

 

Yet no one says Alafouzos, Marinakis, Savvidis, Tiger and the other toxic owners should leave.. only Marinakis.. who will be replaced by another shady Greek millionaire.. Does anyone seriously believe if Tiger controlled the league it would be corruption free? Can anyone imagine something Greek without corruption?

 

 

 

I remember the old Athens airport at hellinikon - full of wild dogs roaming in and out the terminal. I used to marvel at them. It was as if it was their building, they would even sleep on the chairs. I also remember when the brand new airport was opened at Spata. In particular, I was in that airport the year it opened. I remember I was bored around the airport waiting for check in to open. What I saw summed up Greece. I saw an Olympic Airways hostess - who had left her check-in booth. She was still inside the airport, at the sliding doors-  squatting down and seemed to be calling something that was outside - beyond the sliding doors. I went to see what was going on. Outside the airport, where the taxis were, I saw a stray dog - it was contemplating whether to enter this shiny new air-conditioned airport. The Olympic airways hostess was relentless and had a biscuit in her hand - 'ela... ela koukla.' The dog was unsure, but the hostess was working very hard to get the dog inside the building.. I thought to myself, ahhh Greece.. you can put them in new shiny buildings, you can put new suits on them, but essentially, Greeks will always want to create their own unique environment. Same goes for football. Their is no angelic leader waiting to take over Greek football. There is a Marinakis or there is a Tiger. It is a choice between milk with cereal or cereal with milk.

Why does he have to admit it for Reaper? Because that old c*** Savvas asked him, that m**** shouldn't even speak he is a disgrace to football, running to refs asking for games to be called off when his team is down.

 

As for Meli, never once have I said he is clean, if you get involved in Greek Football you have to have a dark side to you, was told this by ex AEK keeper who lives in Sydney now.

 

If Meli did control the league no it wouldn't be clean BUT it wouldn't be to the disgrace that it is now, the state we are in now is a disgrace. Was the league this bad in the 90s? No, was there corruption? Yes certainly but again it wasn't to this extent that's the difference.

Lastly what Meli does with his personal business shouldn't be an issue in Football, tell me which guy involved in oil and gas isn't dirty? you think Roman Abramovic is clean? They are all the same s%$#! in that game.
