Lebanese Football Players Mahmoud Al Ali and Ramez Dyoub were banned for life and charged $15,000 for their involvement in the match-fixing scandal that hit Lebanese Football few months back.
To be honest, $15,000 is a ridiculous punishment for what they’ve done. If it were up to me, I would have thrown them in jail for a year or two and made them pay more along with the lifetime ban. Added to that, early reports indicate tens of players involved, including 9 in the National Team. What happened to the other players implicated in that scandal?
I hope Mahmoud and Ramez didn’t serve as scapegoats.
