Incredible but true, Chapecoense fined for missing the last game
Bureaucracy and regulations are essential to the order of a society things but sometimes enjoy so little flexibility that border on the ridiculous. In the case of soccer we can find it with the fine that the Superior Court of Sports Justice of Brazil has imposed on Chapecoense. Nothing more and nothing less than 30.000 dollars and the loss of 3-0 for not showing up to play his last game of the Brazilian league against Atletico Mineiro.
After the death of almost all equipment, technical and managerial body of the club, Chapecoense y Atlético Mineiro, like is logic, They decided that last game should not be played. A decision that meant everyone but the institution decided to impose the same sanction to rival Chape. A story that is the less absurd for ordinary mortals.
Both Atlético Mineiro and Chapecoense, faced the final day with nothing at stake being the two qualifiers for the Copa Libertadores but it is quite shocking that in a tragedy of such magnitude as that suffered by the Brazilian team in Colombia, it was decided to adopt this type of sanction. We'll see if removed or end remains in effect. Things bureaucracy.
