UEFA Showing Where Their Priorities Are

Arsenal’s (hopefully not for long) Niklas Bendtner was fined 100,000 euros (80,000 pounds) for murdering fluffy kittens daring to offend UEFA by having an “illegal sponsor.”  This fine of course was much stiffer than the earlier fine for racism against Italy’s Mario Balotelli as the graphic above explains.  Never let it be said that UEFA don’t have their priorities straight b/c as we all know you never piss off the sponsors & to hell with real problems like fan violence & racism.

The hilarity of this is that of course UEFA have drawn far more attention to Paddy Power (an Irish betting house & aforementioned “illegal sponsor”) than if they would have done nothing, which was probably Paddy Power’s advert scheme all along.  Good job, nincompoops.

UPDATE: Now, UEFA have fined Croatia a sum more similar to Bendtner’s fine but still 20,000 euros less. LOLZ.  So, remember kidz, Offending sponsors still > racism.  With that in mind who will you offend today?
