Two short updates concerning the new segment of the blog, and the previous post about match fixing.

It is finally here: Bundesliga for newcomer segmentThe has been published in its entirety. Please don’t hesitate to comment on it. All constructive criticism is welcome.

On a darker note: as it turns out, we haven’t seen the last of the match fixing scandal in Germany. I blogged about René

René Schnitzler has admitted that he received money from the gambling mafia in Germany. According to court documents so many as five St. Pauli players could be involved.

Schnitzler and Marcel Schoun in one of my previous blogpost’s. This time around that all the focus is on one club, the FC St. Pauli. It has been alleged that one more match has been fixed. According to the Germany media it is the home match St. Pauli played on may 11th 2008 against Alemania Aachen. One of the accused in the ongoing process has told the police that a total of five St. Pauli players were involved in fixing those matches. It saddens me, it enrages me, and most of all, I feel betrayed. The only good that can come from this that the league, and the clubs finally see gambling amongst professionals as a problem, and takes some overdue actions.
