Enough of this Greekastan CRAP, why do you say that, I am very curious, maybe I can finally understand why that is the only comment you ever say.
every one should demand the withdrawal of the word super from the amateur leaque its joke to football...and should demand the removal of the idiot that did it...
greekastan nothing more..
At least the foreign press won't make fun of us for a third time. Maybe.
This guy represents the Turkish government that bisected and occupied Cyprus at gunpoint. Literaly. Whatever happened to "Justice for Cyprus"? Last time I checked there is still no statute of limitation on murder.
There is hope in the world when events such as these emerge to exemplify the "Olympic Spirit" which aspires to transend political bias for a higher good.

Join in for a full fledged conversation at the Phantis Forums. Let us know what you really think about the Hellenic Football Federation and the Superleague.
who was the idiot that name it suprleaque? there is nothing super about it.
Great, adding 2 more teams to a DEAD Marinakis League, I mean Super League.
Gee that'll scare them.
Yeah, they're shaking in their boots already. Because, you know, Greece may report them to the UN!
Nikos Xydakis one of the biggest clowns in Greek media is criticizing the Greek media.....unbelievable.
Gee that'll scare them.
maybe not the name b/c I'm sure they've trademarked that or something, but the flame...
With that decision, they basically betrayed themselves. They always said for love of sport, blah blah blah. Then they finally admitted that the sport did not bring in enough revenue/viewership.
On top of that, it was suggested that many of the oligarchs of Russia who like and sponsor wrestling in Russia "were the only hope of them NOT removing it" once again betraying their true nature.
This is a mockery of what he Olympics used to be and, at the risk of sounding childish, if I were Greece I would tell them to use a different name and different tradition (i.e. lighting of a torch) or abolish it all together.
It's not unreasonable for Greece to give an opinion, and it gave it. We need to look at some facts here, beyond the emotional and ideological connections that we, as Greeks, have with the Games.
The truth is that the Games are a commercial venture. Forget antiquity and ideology. Others run the Olympics and they base their decisions on reasons other than what we may find important. Is there a Greek among the ruling IOC committee? I'm not certain but I doubt it.
Yes, we can make recommendations and voice an opinion or an outrage, but unless our opinion coincides with that of the IOC it matters not. The outrage? They won't even acknowledge it.
In any case, my previous comment was in direct response to the comment about Greeks "owning" (paraphrasing here) the Olympics. Totally not the case.
although that may be true, hey still find it necessary to light the flame at Olympia, even for the Winter Olympics. So if they respect that tradition, why should it be unreasonable for Greece to give there opinion on a sport that in entrenched in history?
Greeks invented it and Greeks revived it so you need to "shut up" about it. Its GREEK just like MACEDONIA A/H!
Actually, he's quite right. The Romans (or early Byzantines if you like) put an end to the games and a Frenchman revived them. Greece, just like any other country on the planet, is a participant. Greeks have had very little do to with the games' management since the last Olympics of antiquity in 394.
The rest is simply "περασμένα μεγαλεία καί διηγώντας τα κλαίς."
Archbishop of Cyprus expresses support to Anastasiades' candidacy
That title shows that there has been a lot of progress in Cyprus re: the separation of Church and State! I remember the days when the Archbishop was the President!
Despite very similar positions, there is a difference as to how Bulgaria and Greece view FYROM because there is an underlying difference in expectations:
Whereas FYROM claims part of Greece as their own - despite official denials etc. - Bulgaria claims all of FYROM as its own - again, despite official denials, etc.
To Greece, FYROM is a burglar in waiting; to Bulgaria it's a prodigal son.
