Because there is an actual shit-ton worth criticising.
Russia has invaded territories from two of their neighbors whose people dared to wish for democracy. Of course everyone will criticize them.

Of course, but my point just was that it's gonna increase nationalistic now more than ever thinking if your country gets shit on from all sides.

Doesn't make it any better, but let's not act like Russia is the only one to invade other countries. They just happen to get 2 times the criticism compared to the supposedly good guys.

Certainly not the case, but to me it always looks like Russia is the journos villain of choice and that they enjoy nothing more than pissing off Russia. Don't even bother looking at other countries. Like doping was some russia exclusive problem.

I feel bad for every clean russian athlete who can't win without commentators and audiences raising their eyebrows, thinking he's probably doped anyway. Those athletes are under general suspicion, guilty until proven otherwise.
Are there any other countries out there running a government level doping scheme?

And yeah, it must suck being born in Russia and wanting to compete clean, I agree. But it's not my fault that I suspect a Russian athlete to be not clean, it's the fault of his country for creating that image.

P.S. if you're thinking about bringing up the argument that I'm from a country that shares a border and has been fucked over by Russia several times, therefore I'm biased, let me do it for you - yeah I am. I love many things about them, but they deserve a lot of shit.

Cherry picking one sentence. Not even gonna bother arguing with you.

Like an athlete needs the government backing him up to get his hands on drugs.
Hey, I'm just jumping on a chance to express my dislike towards mother Russia, not interested in doing much arguing on the subject :D

[May 2018] I think Sarri could replace Wenger. Bringing Arsenal the long wanted glory just as he did in Napoli. Flair and fancy football. Mastermind. Just think what he could do with players liek Özil, Henrikh mkmkmhkgndiriitiriran and Auba.
