Sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS

According to the timeline, the petition started over a year ago and i’m beyond saddened that we haven’t hit 5000 signatures yet.

I want to highlight

Artificial turf has been blamed for increased injuries on sporting fields, including more sprained ankles, concussions, turf burns, and an injury known as "turf toe." Overheating is also a health concern for athletes since temperatures can be hotter on artificial surfaces than on natural grass. Finally, turf is widely known to alter the speed and quality of play on the field.

Here’s a depiction of what happens

On top of the health hazards, it alters the game. Players would be more wary about slides and tackles. You won’t see any dolphin RVP headers here. No slidey celebrations.

Again, please sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS

I’m passing this around again, if you see this, you have an obligation to sign it

So Simeone gets 8 matches ban but Ronaldo and Ramos can get away with their ugly behaviours, oh and let’s not forget Real Madrid threatened Spanish channels to not to show Ronaldo’s punches. But no surprises, once they also reduced Mou’s ban after poking Tito in the eye, right? Why do RFEF and Uefalona always support Barça and Atlético?! Damn.

Simeone banned for 8 matches?! Is it because he didn’t punch anyone or poke them in the eye?

Someday I will be able to tell my grandchildren I saw Messi play.

and i will explain them what a little shit he was and why ronaldo was ten thousand times better.

If this is going to make you feel better, we will also show pictures of Messi humiliating Ramos and Ramos watching Messi scores amazing goals against his team to our grandchildren. Sergio will be a part of this beautiful history, don’t worry.

yes he will

he most certainly will
