HNK Rijeka, Croatian National Team
We can agree to disagree. No need to call me an idiot or other names. And also, when arguing a point, stick to your own guns. Don't constantly reference others to try and back you up. Be your own man, my friend.I don't want to waste my time with someone who didn't accept the fact that he's wrong, and who will search to find arguments even if he knows that his arguments are a tons of shit (especially when everybody around him will say that he's wrong). Sorry FF.
If you want one answer, and one example lost around many others examples. Look at this :
Italy - South Korea 2002
Now, I invite you again to watch the history of football tournaments, and you'll see that EVERY tournament in the history were cheated, corrupted and co by the hosts or not. With laxativ in the water of the opponent during the cooling break, corrupted referee, teams who have been payed for losing their match etc...
Plus, I said to you that I've practiced sports at a high level, and I've seen many things being corrupted, in one way or in one other way. Do you ?
Do you want an example from Platini himself, he admitted that the polls during the World Cup 98 were cheated and arranged. And he laughed at this during the interview he had. He said that France wanted to avoid Brazil before the Final, then they had what they wanted, this was simple to do from his words.
Now with us, when we had the penalty against us in the match against Brazil during the World Cup 2014, and when Neymar had only a yellow card for the deliberate elbow on Modric face. What Kovac has said in his post match interview "You can already give the trophy to Brazil". Do you really think that he talked about the talent of Brazil team, or about corruption in the tournament ?
Sorry man, but it's really boring to explain again and again this kind of things to people like you, because you act like an ostrich with his head completely hidden in the ground, unable to see the things around you.
Again sorry for my words, but you're an idiot to say that there is corruption in football, but in the same time that there is nothing against us... You've killed all your "arguments" by saying this. Corruption still corruption, nothing less, nothing more.And at the highest level, corruption is everywhere!
Now explain to me, what are all the examples about how Croatia were cheated who came from me, Ante and Nepoznat, only circumstances ? I don't think so. And you know what, your last answer irritate me a lot, you're typically the type of person that I don't like to talk with (like the italian who came here few days ago). Always hidden behind this kind of attitude with a touch of arrogance, with always little smileys because they have nothing to say, "nah you're wrong lol ", "lol, you have no arguments "...
Like we're saying in my Croatian village, there is no point in trying to explain things to a donkey, because he will never become a horse. Sorry again FF, because we're both Croatians but your answers and your words irritates me.
Now, take what you want and how do you want in my vision of the football and the corruption in the world of football.
I don't care if you'll agree or not with my thoughts, all this discussion is over for me!
No arrogance on my end either. I've been off the board for years (and started posting on it in the early 2000's). You don't know me, I really don't know you, you haven't tried to get to know me, so don't jump to all these conclusions about the type of person I am.
Have a nice day. 👋
