If they didn't ban Simeone then how can they ban Ronaldo for making the same gesture?

It would be ridiculous if they applied different logic to it

Also Uefa lose viewers if Ronaldo is banned so everything is working in our favour with him
They didnt ban Ramos for being in the tunnel when they would have certainly banned one of ours for it.

The laws are so vague on purpose to alloww them to do whatever they want on a case by case basis. Consistency lol

Yeah, I agree that it's not a big deal considering it's Ajax (not that it's gonna be a walkover).
But still if they suspend him - that's some big time BS!

If he gets a ban thankfully it's only Ajax and not a relatively strong team. I'm hoping he doesn't get a ban but even if he does we should be able to manage without him for 1 game against Ajax

Im worried about him not being here. We seem to not be able to score goals when he is not around. In a 2 game fixture he is a must right now, specially with the form of our other strikers, with the exception of Kean who looks sharp but will not start any of those games for sure.

some media in Italy have come to the conclusion to we won't do the International Champions Cup in the USA[we're going in Asia] because we're afraid they'll arrest CR7. lol :sergio:
It's not Italian media this time, but the New York Times. A truly garbage click bait hit piece. The Times' standard of journalism is in the gutter these days.

Things to note:
1. The ICC has multiple tour locations, and Juve have been on the US tour for the last 2 seasons, making a change in location quite logical.
2. According to the article itself, the decision was made by the ICC, not by Ronaldo or Juventus
3. Juve do not always tour the US for the preseason. They toured Australia in 2016, the rest of Europe in 2015, East Asia and Australia in 2014.
4. Ronaldo has missed plenty of pre season tours in the past, including to the US.
5. It makes sense for Ronaldo not to tour the US until the case is concluded, not just for legal reasons, but also to avoid negative publicity. It does not mean he is either guilty or innocent.

Momblano had to tell this to these fucks over there or they would have gone with the Juve/CR7 don't want to go there news...

Hell no. Juve should appeal and take UEFA to court, not lie face down and take it up the ass like they did during the Farsopoli trial.

Not a bad reason though. Arrest is not an issue but negative publicity is and that kind of defeats the point of a pre season tour no? and ruining powerful men through hysterical media over alleged sexual misconduct from years ago is our new pastime.
