Ivan's three year ban is over. He is welcome again in all stadiums in Greece.

Has there been any word on fans in stadiums? I bring this up because (much to my HUGE surprise), my state's governor announced today that "larger" venues (essentially stadiums that can hold 5k people or more) will be allowed to open at 12% capacity starting on March 22nd, assuming covid cases continue their drop (the trend is looking very good here, though I'd assume Greece's relative lack of vaccines would make this happening before the end of the season a pipe dream).

Aroniadis is going to be on a show discussing digitization, advertising, and social media with respect to football. Looks like this will at least partially have a focus on the African game (though I'd assume there will be pearls of wisdom from the Greek perspective). This could be very interesting; I'm going to sign up for this.

UEFA-maffia is a tool for the rich. Not for the Red Star's, Trabzonspor's and PAOK's of this world. 

AC Milan just played EL this year despite a debt of 467 mill. They were allowed to participate as corona was blamed and they paid a fine.

And there's the problem. I think financial controls are not only a good idea, but necessary. However, the system as it exists now serves to lock in the teams that got obscenely rich, and lock out teams that only now have owners with deep pockets. If a Chinese billionaire decides to make Atromitos into a football powerhouse, why should we have a problem with it?

Or to put it another way: I don't really have an issue with Abramovich boosting his team to success with his own money. I do have an issue with everyone else not being allowed to do the same, just because they came to the game later.

All that is needed is needed is a system that ranks teams based on their financial wealth, where the richest team owner isn't allowed to pump any money money into that team, whilst the lowest team on the list is allowed to pump the most money into their team.

A salary cap would also  help level off football, but that may not be possible because of EU laws.

Here's the link to Arioniadis' interview regarding PAOKTV (and related initiatives). It's currently live and he just went into the background of why PAOKTV exists (giving specifics on the #s involved).
