    Why can’t they change the country the World Cup is held in since if people don’t feel strongly of Russia’s actions then people will not want to be in the country and give more of a opportunity for Russia to prove them self not guilty?

    2 questions:

    Is stopping players from making political statements stopping them from having the human right of free speech ?

    Do you think sometimes managers can be bias and give players different punishment for breaking the rules and making a political statement because of their own or the general public’s political views?

    My question is for the sports journalist
    How would you feel if you were supporting your country by wearing a ribbon and then got fined because you have the right to an opinion and that is taken a way from you as you are given a huge sum that you have to pay?
    My question is for the athlete
    What do you think about the sitaution do you think the two should mix if no why? Think about all the benifits if it was and if it wasn’t how would it help you?
