Trying to look beyond my emotions and emotional arguments such as "money talk" and "those bastard deserved to suffer more" and I am not finding it hard to see the other perspective. There is no question about Manchester City deserving punishment for the financial stuff they did. Now the question is. What is the right amount of punishment?
My opinion is the following. Reducing of the financial punishment was not the right thing. Those 10 million they won't even notice. On the other hand banning the club for 2 years from the European football competitions would not only harm the club, but possibly the English football. And English football rocks the last years.
Not only that. Which potential young player would want to sign up for a club that can not get him any significant European Trophee? Which coach would want to make history by not being able to make the history. I believe, the ban could destroy Manchester City for the whole decade and maybe even longer. Conclusion. Huge financial punishment? For sure! Banning from international comeptitions? No. The action was not ethical, but nobody died.
