Betting scandal cleans up Greek football

The Greek police on Wednesday arrested ten suspects involved in a football betting scandal, including several club presidents, on charges of money laundering and manipulating game results. Clearing up the scandal will be a catharsis for Greek football, writes the Internet portal Protagon: "This story, which has shaken Greek football to the core since yesterday, provides a unique chance to advance the state of Greek football. ... At the moment Greek fans seem readier than ever to accept bitter disappointments regarding their teams. ... If the volcano that has now erupted can eradicate all that's bad from Greek football, the people will once more come back to the stadia in droves. Even if the ensuing games are the worst we've ever seen they will at least be genuine. And that is all that counts."
