The Corona crisis has a major impact on all of our lives. There are still strict distance rules in all areas, Also, TV and film productions have to follow these rules as well as families and friends. However, while restaurants and bars, hotels and holiday facilities, theatres and cinemas continue to face the unknown, thanks to the football lobby the full-contact sport will start again now.
VICTORY FOR THE FOOTBALL LOBBY OR
HOW MONEY RULES THE WORLD
At least in this area, everything remains the same. Money rules the world and sport.
Of course, TV and sponsorship money are tempting. But all other athletes follow the distance rules in their trainings. Often, they try to keep themselves at least fit in their garage or apartment. However, again the overpaid footballers and their managers, who are certainly not threatened by existential fears, compete against each other in direct duels. Of course, without any distance. Because, it’s simply not possible in this sport.
Thus, the football lobby once again puts itself above the general public, of course, with the argument that it wants to serve it. For sure.
The hygiene concept of the DFL is considered as still immature by many experts. Karl Lauterbach, a well-known German politician, physician and health scientist, described the concept as “not worth the paper it is written on” on the TV show “Maischberger”.
THE REALITY BEHIND THE SCENES
This week, the ridiculous video of Salomon Kalou, a player of the Berlin club Hertha BSC, proved that the concept does not work, especially behind the scenes. In the video, Kalou walks through the changing rooms, gives high-five with his teammates, watches a Corona examination without any distance, etc.
This video caused a stir and showed that the DFL doesn’t really have anything under control. Probably, they may be causing the next chaos soon. Because, football many are reluctant to watch alone.
