Brazil is often a country filled with crime, it’s not shocking to see paid off police or government officials. This is what many are believing is what happened with Brazilian Pan Am soccer player “Lucas Domingues Piazon” whom was charged with Sexual Assault while he was playing in the games in Toronto, Ontario. The Ontario Authorities have placed a warrant out for his arrest, meaning if he ever returns to the province he will instantly be arrested on site. He was also prosecuted for his crimes in Brazil as well, committing a global offence such as this has multiple repercussions. Charges were laid but they’ve now been dropped in only a manner on months. Many believe it’s due to him using his funds to pay off government & authority officials.
Piazon hasn’t been able to been reached for any comments or interviews since these charges were first made back on October 29th, 2015. This only made him look that much guiltier. No one knows as to what is next for this young twenty-one-year-old man but you can be ensured that no football team will take him on after these tremendous allegations & extreme global recognitions.
The evidence pertaining towards him paying off these officials is that 27-year-old, Thye Mattos Ventura Bezerra has a warrant out for his arrest in Brazil right now for similar crimes he committed at the Pan Am games on July 18th. If these bribes come to light, then you can be ensured that not only these officials but Mr. Piazon himself will be arrested hours after it’s been revealed.
Prince William & Prince Harry showcased once again what it’s like to be royalty. This 2015 Christmas’s Eve wasn’t spent by the fireplace with some hot chocolate. No, instead these two men attended a charity soccer event in Norfolk, England. This is actually a royal tradition that has been practiced for decades. These princes kept up the tradition this year but changed it up slightly, instead of playing on opposing teams they decided to play with one another on the same team. This in turn made for some unique plays which showcased the prince’s athletics.
It should be expected that Prince Harry would be athletically fit as he used to be a part of the British Armed Forces, so much so that he participated in the Afghanistan War. Prince William on the other hand is starting to reach old age, now married with one child and a second on the way, his age was evident as a factor as his brother did have more stamina as well as shots on net. Never the less both of these prince’s had equal time on the field & both made astonishing players within the ninety minutes of game time.
These princes’ later met up with their family to spend the holiday’s with one another as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Kate Middleton were not in attendance this year. Whatever the royal family has in store you can be ensured that Grandma (Queen Elizabeth II) will lead the way for the festivities with her loving family by her side.
Violence is an epidemic for the “Professional Greece Football League”. The league is plagued by violence, so much so that visiting teams aren’t allowed to have their fans attend the events as attacking and occasional murders used to be a result. This match which took place against Panathinaikos and archrival’s Olympaikos was canceled after Panathinaikos fans light flames & stormed their own beloved team’s gates. Once in the stands flares were shot at Olympaikos fans, the captain being injured in the process.
Police quickly arrived on the scene within only a minute as officers were only a hundred feet await from the gates. Those at the event were quoted by media officials with saying, “This was the most horrific riot I’ve ever seen.” And so much more. Apparently an un-identifiable amount of people were attacked in the process, fan on fan violence starting to occur. Players found themselves rushing from the field in order to stay hidden in the locker rooms, it wasn’t until two hours later when police cleared the back streets as being safe that players were allowed to leave the facility.
This issue is becoming so large that the league is unaware as to what they’re going to do in the future. Fans aren’t willing to end the violence which may cause for the league to be terminated. Hopefully this won’t happen but as violence increases, a player’s fear does as well, same with the coaches and referees. Olympaikos’s team manager had no statements to make to the media.
The Toronto Football Club, a soccer team that’s a part of Major League Soccer unfortunately are no longer a part of the MLS Playoffs. This nine year old MLS Team finally made their way to the playoffs for the first time in the clubs history but as one of the newer teams, older & more skilled team “The Montreal Impacts” were able to defeat TFC by 3-0. This has lead Toronto fans all over the city to be upset as this was the first time that their football team had made a mark in the MLS.
This means that both professional sporting teams in Toronto that were both in their respective playoffs lost to other teams. This has Toronto fans everywhere holding their heads in shame. It seems that Toronto is one of those cities that can never claim a title once again in the realm of hockey, baseball and soccer. The only team that does any good is the Toronto Argonauts, an American Football team.
Analysts and experts state that this is the coach’s fault as Toronto FC has individual players who do incredibly well on their own but they don’t interact with the rest of the team well. While the Montreal Impacts have individual incredible players who also work well with one another, making for a brutal and unstoppable force on the field.
It’s expected that the TFC Coach will be told to revise his coaching techniques or be fired so that a new coach can come on. The new coach will be told to get the individual players to work well as a team.
The National Women Soccer League is standing strong and happy today as it was revealed by Nike that they’ve extended their contract with the NWSL until 2019. This came as a shock as many suspected that Nike would opt out of extending the contract in order to go down other advertising avenues. Luckily this isn’t the case.
This sponsorship deal has been key to the survival of the NWSL as no other professional women soccer league in the United States of America has survived more than three years. The NWSL launched back in 2013, they’ve only operated for nearly three years but this extension on their contract ensures that they’ll be playing for at least another three years. It’ll make them the longest standing professional women soccer sporting league in US History.
This sponsorship extension has also allowed for these women to be granted with brand new Nike Football Shoe’s, Nike Apparel and Nike Uniforms for the team. This upgrade in their equipment could allow for the teams in this sporting league to have the extra boost they need. This in return could make the soccer they play for more exciting.
Nike will also be supplying the official game ball for the NWSL. This isn’t surprising as Nike is truly the biggest sporting giant in the world, they create all of the official game balls for an array of different sports. The biggest being basketball & soccer. Hopefully we will see the National Women’s Soccer League become beloved & famous in the upcoming years.
