Updated: UEFA Continues To Be Douchebaggy

27 Jun

The UEFA has denied the RFEF’s request to have one minute of silence for Miki Roque at today’s Spain-Portugal match. They have also told La Roja that they can’t wear black mourning armbands. Lest you think this is just general regulations, they did allow one minute of silence before the France-Sweden game after the death of journalist Thierry Roland.  Pooheads.  Thanks to watishisto PLL for bringing this to my attention.

Updated: Watishista jellyace found this info. I guess they relented.

Madrid Appeals Mourinho’s 5-Match European Ban

10 Jun

NYON, Switzerland (AP)—Real Madrid has challenged coach Jose Mourinho’s five-match Champions League ban for accusing UEFA and its referees of conspiring to help Barcelona.

UEFA says its appeals body will hear the case on June 30.

UEFA’s disciplinary panel punished Mourinho for “inappropriate” comments after Madrid’s 2-0 loss to Barcelona in the first leg of the semifinals on April 27. He also was sent from the dugout during the game.

Mourinho was banned for the return match. Another one-game ban was suspended provided there are no further infractions for three years.

He will miss Madrid’s first three Champions League group matches next season.

Under UEFA rules, Mourinho can later appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport if his sanction is three matches.

Well, we knew it was going to be appealed, but now it’s official and we’ll only have to wait a few weeks to hear the results.

UEFA clears Busquets

16 May

Of fucking course they did. I guess it was too much to expect the UEFA to take any real action. Lip service only apparently. I can just imagine the statements. Let me guess: football triumphed. Just shameful. More later – I’m on the subway and I’m about to lose reception. When I get above ground again, I’ll add links, etc. So fucking angry.

The day here in NYC is just as rainy and gloomy as it was at Camp Nou yesterday.  However, I look far less appealing in wet clothing, so I’m staying inside, drinking tea and pouting because it’s cold.
