im gonna go out on a limb here and say maybe a slap on the wrist comes from this.

plus i like the idea of closure coming with this debate. nov 27th is the day of reckoning.

i wonder if willian will be punished also for his part in assisting on the play?

Willian didn't do anything out of the ordinary or unsportsmanlike.

i dont know, it seems like uefa is going to have a hard time judging selective items of sportsmanship.

if the danish player feigned injury leading up to this play, that has to be taken into account, as do the fact that teams must be at the ready for 90 minutes.

aint no mulligans in soccer.

Apparently, the sky is another color in your world. You did not read the link.

"Luiz Adriano faces charges for violation of the principles of conduct (Article 5, UEFA Disciplinary Regulations)... "

dikranovich said...

we have been getting some nice october skies lately, but like you said, he is facing charges, which means he has not been charged. and in the country i reside, you are innocent until proven guilty, a concept that i will even apply to a case being tried in europe.

Greg Seltzer said...

Here, let me help you with those goalposts. He is subject to UEFA guidelines for fair play. It's not some unicorn concept they can only quantify in dreams.

dikranovich said...

well article five has eleven principles that constitute a violation of the article, and really there does not seem to be much that he can be tried for, not regarding this play anyway.

now that i have read the article, im even more sure luiz adriano is going to go on without to much punishment. especially if he has good council, which im sure he will because his owner is an oligarch.

In the country dikranovich resides, god bless them, I am sure they also have different standards of proof for criminal and civil courts. Anyways, I am sure he has an explanation as to how this relates to an UEFA decision. Perhaps I am just high.

While dikranovich's knowledge of these sorts of proceedings are obviously intimate and surely instructive a reasonable person may take this bit of information and wait and see what happens. Obviously the good council (probably costing far less and far less effective than those of an oligarch, DERP DERP) of UEFA have interpreted Luiz Adriano's conduct as a violaton of the code. Of course he is not going to receive "much" punishment. A symbolic gesture is probably all that the aggrieved can hope for. Anyways I am glad that a ridiculous argument could be once again furthered by someone who confuses being provocative with being intelligent.
