It was 1 year, but half of the time was already completed. Assis was suspended almost the same time last year, and didn't play until August.

The TAS will make an official communication in two weeks time explaining the decision. The penalty requested by the accusation was 2 years and they only gave 1.

So you're a FC Porto fan?

Funny sense of humour you have there.

Do you care to explain why do you think this case was a "joke"?

I don't believe Nuno Assis is a cheater, may those TAS-whatsoever-dwarfs draw any decision upon that case they want! There have been other mightier men in history (not only of sports) who have comitted slander for the sake of those who paid them for exactly that. Never in life will I believe their lies, I've got my own eyes and mind and to me Nuno Assis on the pitch two years ago didn't appear a doped man by no means, full stop.

yep, I'm sure all this is part of the "cabala" against the Institution.

Be it whatever it may, I just can't believe that of all players Nuno Assis was doped, the one most underperforming in my eyes, to be honest.

Maybe Real Madrid but those ticks up north led by their major tick PDC lack the polish you're trying to apply to them.

The ruling will have very little, if any, impact on the squad - Nuno Assis was not a vital player to the squad, especially with Rui Costa coming back, albeit his diversified skill set could have provided multiple backup roles.

In the end, our fate still depends largely on how long Rui and Simao stay healthy – they are the only two players that can help the team overcome FS’s shortcomings.

Freedom is the great liberator of the mind – it threatens only the comfort of the sequacious intellect.

So be it, but Benfica cannot go running to a Swiss civil court to bitch, we don't need Fifa to punish all Portuguese clubs because of this. Let's only welcome Fifa over when it's time to send Porto to the 2nd or 3rd Division
