Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

A little bit of breaking news...

Portuguese giants, FC PORTO are being investigated for match fixing during the 2003/2004 season which saw them win there own League Title and the UEFA Champions League.
The match fixing is only for games in there own domestic league but if found guilty, they would be stripped of the 2004 European Title by UEFA like Marseille who lost the 1992 cup in the same fashion.
If found guilty, they would be relegated by the Portuguese FA according to reports and also forefit this season's title.
If Fidelity to freedom and democracy is the code of our civic religion then surely the code of our humanity is faithful service to that unwritten commandment that says we shall give our children better than we ourselves received
