Olympiakos denounce football scandals. Impossible staff. As they say, everything can happen in life. Don't take anything as granted.
And why not denouncing? Olympiakos FC try to protect its interests. This is not a court to decide who is right and who is wrong. In the end, it is well known that Panathinaikos is responsible for everything happend at Leoforos and especially after referee Pappas' announcement.
Nobody denies that Panathinaikos should be punished exemplary until everyone will stop thinking that has the right to do whatever wants at football fields. Especially, threatening people's life with straight-shooting firecrackers.
Therefore, there should be no surprise for Olympiakos' decision to attend at Panathinaikos' trial and appeal against the procedure. The club wants to win the game in cards. Why not? It is not a matter of trust of team's squad. It is a stronger side and Panathinaikos also accepts that. But when you feel mighty, you want to show it.
This case is not important for Olympiakos. They will win the League, with 5 or 20 points of difference, no matter if they win or lose at Leoforos. And is a small price, especially in front of the bigger someone can have in his mind.
Especially if someone think about the 2007-08 championship Olympiakos won at courts and pushed AEK at a downhill until Football League 2. Olympiakos took the 25 million euros the next season and AEK the ridicule and the scorn. Instead of the stars, was found in the football swamp.
They "dream" the same thing for Panathinaikos? Who knows...
As long the government rewards the corruption system, by delaying the clearance, anything is possible.
It is neither unreasonable nor unlawful for Olympiakos to legally support its case and request points deduction. It is the opposite.
However, it is strange to hear or read Olympiakos speaking of scandals. And this reference is about the club, not the supporters. The fans can say whatever they want, but every big club has an institutional role in society.
AEK has the right to speak about scandal, or PAOK. Of course. They have a legitimate interest (because they chase Panathinaikos at table and compete for the second position) and can also invoke that they had been recently punished for similar cases.
AEK FC, knowing that it is just a matter of time for the fire to reach again its "house", since it has three derbies at home at second round, put aside the ephemeral interest and highlighted the collective, at its statement earlier this week.
OK, everything is acceptable. But Olympiakos leaking opinion about scandals in football? Olympiakos which seems at Andreadis indictment to "enjoy the goodwill of referees, who helped him to be on top position of Super League, with many chances to win the League and participate at Champions League matches, of which is expected to earn at least 25 million euros".
I find it unnecessary. And slightly provocative to the majority of fans who are (masochistic) still interested. Only a few have been left after such behaviors. Let's not drive them away like all the others.
Because that's how football became like politics. From election to election, fewer and fewer people go to vote. The Greek had to pay taxes, Did the Greek ENFIA, loan installments, liabilities to the tax office, registration fees etc. etc. He also had to listen PASOK political party to speak about a better tomorrow and unleash denunciatory speeches. How many more for the Greeks to withstand?
