Galatasaray'ın etkili taraftar grubu ultrAslan tarafından bir kampanya başlatıldı..
Türkiye Futbol Federasyonu'nun, 58. Madde'nin değiştirilmesi konusunda tüm kulüp başkanlarını 26 Ocak'ta olağanüstü toplantıya çağırması üzerine Galatasaray'ın etkili taraftar grubu ultrAslan tarafından UEFA'ya şikayet için mail kampanyası başlatıldı.
I felt it was necessary to ask for your help about the match fixing scandal currently ongoing in Turkish Football. I’m sure you are quite aware of what had transpired, but to summarize a number of managers, players and even chairmen of several football clubs were arrested by the police with accusations of match fixing; accusations that soon were backed up by irrefutable evidence, sadly showing us -football fans- that we have been fooled for a very long time. The most serious accusations are on Fenerbahce, the reigning champions, who are accused of fixing several matches to win the league.
Turkish football is currently ruled by Mr. Mehmet Ali Aydinlar, a former Fenerbahce board member. On his way to the top of Turkish football, he was mainly backed up by Mr. Aziz Yildirim, the president of Fenerbahce, who was arrested and is still in prison for the charges mentioned above. With Mr. Aydinlar at the helm, the Turkish Football Association (TFF) crumbled under the pressure of Fenerbahce, and Digiturk, the tv channel that has the rights of the league, and was bombarded with economic, political and social threats. TFF failed to act sternly and diligently; in most cases it simply failed to act at all. The penalty for match fixing is clear in the law: relegation for each attempt, whether successful or not; yet Fenerbahce and other clubs have managed to stay in the league so far, with the help of Mr. Aydinlar. Furthermore, these people have also managed call for a general council on 26th of January, 2012, no doubt to change the law so that match-fixing no longer is punishable by relegation. Aside from few notable clubs, practically all others have so far sided with the accused due to the economic repercussions the relegations would bring and I am afraid will side with them once again on the 26th. I believe this will be the final nail in the coffin for football in Turkey; for if the clubs in this scandal will be allowed to get away with it, there simply will be no one and no law left to stop the future attempts.
This is why we are asking for your help; we have long lost our trust in the people that govern football and believe that only an intervention from the UEFA body, supported by respectable parties can put an end to this effrontery. Please help us in our crusade against those who would stain the beautiful game, who still are trying to bend the laws and the regulations to their will through threats and using their connections with senators, with media, with the acting president of Turkish Football Association and their other cohorts. Please help us prevail against those who have created a mafia organization to destroy what football should mean, an honest competition to do and to become better.
Please help us clean Turkish football from the mob."
