Yet another proof of this world being ruined by pathetic people in high places. See this report from Soccernet here.
Nothing wrong with punishing racism but can't they do it any other way? For example losing all gate receipts to the UEFA or whatsoever? At the 13th hour, how are the fans going to get refunds for their flights to Madrid? How are they going to get back the downpayment for their hotel rooms? Well hell yeah those higher-ups in UEFA will have no problems getting to these places because they don't need to pay for their own transport and accomodations. Think for the fans!!! Football will not be here if not for the fans!
"No alternative" was the response from UEFA - I'm sure there are alternatives. Those peple just want to show their power. If they don't have a solution to such a simple problem then why are they there in the first place?
