When Labron James flatly told the NBA that he will never play in an empty arena, did these same people accuse him of being unprofessional.


Yes he was blasted for being selfish.

Money isn’t everything. I am sure he has enough anyway. He took a morally correct and courageous stand. I can never blame a man for standing on his principles. Took guts and I applaud him

Principles ke; principle would have meant sacrificing everything to honor wishes of his Turkey fans and wishes entire club organization that helped make his stay in Turkey comfortable on daily basis. But no he has enough money already and can do without never mind that his departure could Completely deconstruct the entire goal of signing him. if he really needed the money we would where we are now because there would be no talk off principle.

Jette, unlike you, there are people that actually value their lives and that of their family. How anybody in their right mind could expect for a responsible father to not protect their family in these trying times to me is crazy. Mikel did the right thing, and the fact that the league finally came to their senses proves he was right all along. These guys aren’t slaves esp an accomplished player like Mikel.

Of course anytime emotion drives action or opinions this is exactly what happens - a cooked up grenade. One must endeavor to maintain a cool head even in face of extreme provocation and 300 million in the bank. The league was all along going to follow the rest of the world and if they didn’t FIFA would have.

FIFA doesn't have that authority, and clearly it didnt appear they were taking it seriously.
