If there is any trend coming on it is that of football fans becoming used by homosexual players in the game.
It is becoming an accepted fact that homosexuality can exist among footballers. Select committees are being told by experts that inquiry into homophobia need not matter now. If a footballer turns out to be gay he will not be penalized in the way they used to before.
Committees are now hearing that fans would be supportive, even if footballers announced that they were gay. There was a recent inquiry about the effects of culture and media on sport selection. There have been debates initiated by boxers like Manny Pacquiao and Tyson Fury. They were told that the footballers can be more open about their sexuality as fans have become more supportive. The findings were part of a larger research into homophobia in different sports and games.
According to latest reports, a pro-stadium group wants to spend $63 million on the construction of a high school football stadium.
Voters in McKinney, Tex., have given the go-ahead with the plans after months of contentious debate in the suburb north of Dallas.
Even though Mike Giles, a leader of Grassroots McKinney opposed the plan and added that:
“We‘re kind of like the poor boys on the block
“They look down and they see Allen. Allen has a really nice stadium.”
Jennifer Gray, the chairwoman of Vote for McKinney’s Future, a pro-stadium group insisted saying:
“Down South, football is a really big deal, and playoff football is a really big deal.”
The proposed 12,000-seat facility and an attached events center would be just the latest in a growing list of supersized high school stadiums in Texas. The McKinney project has frequently been compared to the $60 million high school stadium in nearby Allen. With seats for 18,000 people, the Allen stadium has nearly the same capacity as Madison Square Garden. Another school stadium under construction in Katy, outside Houston, will have 12,000 seats at a projected cost of more than $62 million.
Newly signed Manager of EPL giants, Chelsea have been in the news now regarding the Premier League title hopes. While many believe he has all he needs to lift the prestigious title, others say he would not have it easy.
Former Juventus youth team manager who also played in the 1996 Juventus squad alongside Anthonio Conte, says the highly successful coach would repeat another success with Chelsea in England.
Anthonio is set to quit his current job as the manager of Italy to take over at Chelsea this summer. Stamford Bridge have confirmed the talented Coach will make the move by season end on a three year deal.
Fabrizio Ravanelli played in Juventus for four years between 1992 and 1996. The former Middlesbrough striker told reporters regarding EPL title hopes: “I think, under Antonio Conte, it’s a guarantee. He is one of the most meticulous managers in the world – but also a fighter. Chelsea have made a great decision. To be honest, when we were together I didn’t think he would become a manager.”
Greece is enduring some tough times not only in relation to the financial condition of the country but it has also affected their national football team and this is evident by all of the recent event which has been occurring in Greek football.
The Greek national football team has been sustaining successive defeats against Faroe Islands and had to settle with draws when playing with Poland and Hungary. Due to these underwhelming results, Greece was not able to snatch a spot in the 2016 Euro’s as they were eliminated and don’t have any chance of participating in the tournament which will be hosted in France.
Football academies in Greece are one of the things that have been affected by the financial situation of the country as those academies have failed to produce talented young players and even when they do emerge, these players will be closely monitored by top European clubs who are prepared to offload tempting offers in order to lure them away from Greece.
Investing in the domestic football league of Greece has also turned into something that has taken a downhill road as businessmen have not taken an interest in investing their money on a country which is suffering from a financial disintegration.
