Undeniably, the referees faced tremendous pressure from the governing body, league executives, and CSL clubs that they “served.” Their ability to fix matches was just as great or even greater than the players themselves. The best example that fully illustrates the absurdity of referee corruption was Lu Jun, a former international World Cup referee. Known as the “Golden Whistle” for his professionalism and neutral stance when it came to refereeing football matches, Lun Jun was indicted for match fixing and accepting briberies (Montague). An incident such as this one damages the integrity of the league to an extent that is truly unimaginable. A position that is purposefully abused by the supposed “professionals” who are in charge of upholding the decency and fairness of the matches sends waves of unethicality and indecency that are almost, in a sense, irreversible.
Are peoples’ opinions that you disagree with not allowed? This question has been heavily put to the test as football players have been swarmed with abhorrence. This anger has been brought to them through the protest that they have acted with, not standing or kneeling during the national anthem, in the past few years. Football players should be protected by the first amendment of the constitution, which is for free speech and protest. Football players should not be punished for their opinion and issue in which they protest in the United States because it brings awareness to society issues, use social status, and even though people disagree that the protest should not happen during the National Anthem.

During the last few decades, the concussion rate in the NFL has been rising.
He cut off people hands, used whips, held woman hostages to bribe the men to work and created human zoos all in a racist fashion for his personal financial gain. In the 40 year period that Leopold was in power, 10 million Congolese people died. (Congo-The Brutal History, 2008) Although the Congo Free State is a very extreme case of racism, it provides a picture of what could and was happening in other parts of the imperialistic conquest. This shows that racism had a large part in the imperialistic movements, however even though it was unacceptable, racism wasn’t a motivation by itself, it provided a gateway to another motivation. In the case of King Leopold II, he wasn’t racist just for
It has been associated with it since the inception of international level games and some form of corruption will stay with us as long we hold competitive sports. It is simply a part of human nature. If not dealt properly, corruption will destroy many of the sports as we know them. Like a tsunami, it will sweep aside all other issues and will leave the sport dead and destroyed. In India, often questions are raised whether a Politician or businessmen should be allowed to Head these bodies, where the quality of the sport is on the decline.

This report reflected that the terrorists are selective in their target but they do not spare tourist destinations and mammy market is one of the tourist spots in Bauchi.
