Manners and a fair play in football

Human ego is fragile as flower. Once when something touch it, ego is full of rage and person will make things out of control. If person is connected with any kind of sport, ego should be in background. How many times we saw crazy John Mc'Enroe who throw racket on the ground, or Goran Ivanišević who was swearing? They lost control when their game was not valued, as they thought.

Football is place for various drama. Zinedine Zidan hit italian player Materazzi with his head, Gonzalo Jara put his finger into ass of Cavanni, but in Croatia we also have our gamer for race. His name is Paolo Machado. He is from Portugal, but he plays in Croatian football club Dinamo. I am supporter of Dinamo a long time ago, even this club needs good injection to show some results. In the moment Dinamo is on the way to reach Euro champion League , but they need to change strategy. 

Their coach Zoran Mamić was accused for criminal acts, as corruption and fraud, and he spent 10 days in Croatian jail Remetinec, until someone paid huge bail for him. His brother Zdravko was also with him in prison, and he is vice president of football club Dinamo. They are notorious duo, and people in Croatia don't like them, especially supporters of Dinamo, Bad Blue Boys, so you can often hear from stadium : "Mamić, fucking gay", or "Mamić, Gypsy". As sign of defiance, north side of stadium is empty, there are no supporters, and they appeared only during Croatian derby, football match Dinamo - Hajduk, while brothers Mamić were in prison. 

Yesterday was football match between Norwegian club Molde and croatian club Dinamo. Result was 1:1, Dinamo played fade game, and Norwegian defense was very good. This game will not be remembered, but Paolo Machado will come into football history. In second halftime, coach decided to replace Machado with Marko Rog, perspective young footballer. Machado got whistles from audience , accord opinion of supporters his participation was not enough. He did not  played as they expected, and people were whistling. Machado put his hand on ear, like he did not heard well. After that, he shown middle finger to audience. Referee punished him with red card. Then he shown both hands as sign of rebellion, and went out. After match he was also punished, coach threw him out from first team.

Ok, we all understand frustration and rage when someone is laughing to you, and especially if that is public shame. I would be furious too. But, he is professional footballer, and he must give an example. Lucky, his red card was out of game, but next time he can get red card in game, and Dinamo could play with 10 footballers instead 11, so that would be damage for team. Also, many are furious on brothers Mamić, because they gave bad example with their behavior. Zoran Mamić hit supporter with fist in one football match, and Zdravko is familiar of scandals with his hot temper. 

Dinamo should change coach and vice president, supporters might came back in bigger number, but will things change? Middle finger is not part of football game. If you can't give good score, don't make it worse. Dinamo is already notorious and hooligans already made mess in Luxembourg during match Fola Esch - Dinamo, so Machado is not player who can make good impression. 

Ego or result, now is the question. Better to throw ego out than to show middle finger, because this is not symbol of victory. Middle finger is symbol of defeat, and ego is bad replacement.

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…
