I think it absolutely is. But at the same time, it needs calling out and if that's what it takes, then so be it. I really hope that they push hard on it

This is a good thing example of not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good. Whatever motives La Liga have, they're better than any motives any of the owners or PSG and all the fuckin rest have for anything.

You gents are right but of all the leagues to be banging the drum it’s ironic that it’s La Liga . Hopefully it gathers pace & some other federations get involved.

La Liga have Real and Barca behind them. Two of the biggest 3 or 4 clubs in the world. They also have the arrogance/belief that they also can do what they want. The PL doesn't have any of that, and the PL are weak. If they had any kind of strength they'd be doing their own broadcasting and not leaving it to others.

Fuck real and Barca, they have also played their part in over inflating the market to ridiculous levels over the years.

PSG and City shouldnít be allowed to do what they do but I donít think those two from Spain can be on their high horse.

Real and barca are only arsed because they see themselves losing their dominance in the transfer market and now speak up. Yes, it's a bit cheeky given their level of corruption but anything that helps to stop city, psg, Newcastle and others from taking the piss to a whole new level must be seen as a good thing

We were below Real and Barca money wise anyway. To go below the oily journalist murdering human rights abusers is a joke.

Turkeys not voting for Christmas shocker

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61923886

Paris St-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi acquitted in Fifa media rights investigation.

Paris St-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been cleared of corruption by a Swiss appeals court.

Ex-Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke was also cleared of the same charge but in a separate case was found guilty of accepting bribes and forging documents.

Valcke, 61, was given an 11-month prison sentence and a fine of 20,000 Swiss francs (£17,000), both suspended.

Swiss prosecutors were appealing a ruling from October 2020 by the Swiss Federal Criminal Court.

The charges related to World Cup TV rights at a time when Valcke was general secretary of football's world governing body.

Al-Khelaifi, also chairman of the European Club Association and a member of Uefa's executive committee, was acquitted of inciting Valcke to commit aggravated criminal mismanagement and the appeals court backed that decision in a written judgement published on Friday.

Further covering up and whitewashing in the article.

I suspect that will be a useful distinction for FIFA to make when if/when the Qatar WC is investigated

Bound to be a whitewash

A verdict in the fraud trial of former Fifa president Sepp Blatter and vice-president Michel Platini is expected on Friday.

Swiss prosecutors claimed that a 2011 payment of 2m Swiss francs (£1.6m) made by Blatter to ex-Uefa president Platini was unlawful.

Both men denied wrongdoing and say the transfer was belated payment for Platini's advisory work for Fifa.

They were banned from football in 2015 and indicted last November.

The 11-day trial, which took place at the Federal Criminal Court in Bellinzona, Switzerland, concluded on 22 June.j

£1.6m can’t be swept under the carpet that easily hopefully.

Maybe I don't understand the ins and outs of the case but from what I read they are claiming that this was payments for advisory work. If that was the case there should be a contract where this was agreed. If that's the case then there is no case to answer. If there isn't then to me they seem bang to rights. Blatter can't just decide to retrospectively give his mate a load of money for work that he may or may not have done if there was no contract in place.

"The facts of the indictment cannot therefore be considered to have been created with a probability bordering on certainty."

So did not meet the criminal court burden of proof.

I just hope neither of them has the brass neck to try to overturn the football bans now!
