Today we have a handy reminder of where UEFA and FIFA’s priorities lie.
On one hand, the FAs of Russia and Poland are fined 30,000 euros and 4,000 euros respectively over fan violence. In the last Euros and World Cup, Croatia amassed more than $40,000 in fines for racist fan behavior.
But Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner showing his undies with a betting house’s name on them gets him a one-game suspension and a 100,000 euro fine.
UEFA and FIFA: fuck shit up and yell what you like, but don’t you dare make money off something we’re not.
