What silence? I replied to your comment that there is a difference between Turkish teams being suspended for bribery and match-fixing and the Greek teams you mentioned who were suspended for being bankrupt.

If you had made the point that BigOZ did about Greek teams in the past being banned for bribery and match fixing I'd say you made a valid point. Cheating and corruption is not an exclusively Turkish trait. They've just been the ones caught out recently.

And there's probably a good reason for it. Fenerbahce cheated to keep up their status and income from the Champions League. Lots of Turkish athletes have been caught out cheating just as Turkey has put a bid in to hold the Olympics. It's not a coincidence...

Here is a link to an article on the background to the Fenerbahce case which touches on the extent of corruption in Turkish football:

In Turkey, trial of Fenerbach owner Aziz Yildirim shows that soccer’s match-fixing scandal goes all the way to the top. The 60-year-old tycoon was convicted in July by Istanbul’s 16th Heavy Penal Court of “forming and leading a criminal gang” that rigged four games and offered payments to players or rival club officials to fix three others — all so Fenerbahce could stay in the Champions League, a benefit the club estimated to be worth $58.5 million a year...

Few in Turkey believe match-fixing is limited to that, and few believe it has ended. Turkish sports commentator Bagis Erten notes that rigging allegations have emerged every season for the past 40 years.
“The widespread belief in Turkey,” he said, “is that at some time or another, each and every team has attempted to fix games.”

Why do you care about Turkish football in Cyprus sports thread? Do you have any Turkish clubs or players playing in your league?

How anyone can watch a bunch of big girls blouses, with highly inflated egos, highly inflated wage, prancing around kicking a bag o wind around on some grass for 90 minutes is beyond me.
All they ever do is fall over crying ' boo hoo that bad man pulled my hair, boo hoo looks at me I'm such a drama queen' :lol:


Much prefer MotoGP! 8)

Real men, riding at the speed of light, crash in spectacular fashion, hurtling through the air like a human cannonball.....only to get up off the tarmac, run pick up bike and try to run with it and rejoin the race!
They then think kicking the gravel trap, 'dash and codswallop, fecked that up royally'

Wave to the crowd thinking 'wehay, hard as nails me, I didn't even break so much as a finger nail :mrgreen: :twisted:


FAR more entertaining, and far more world friendly sport!

Really entertaining... Not! :roll:

Wow... 31 Turkish athletes banned.

'Turkey hands out two-year drug bans to 31 of its track and field athletes, including Olympic medallist Esref Apak'

Not that I care, but it DID make the news.
