They aren't going down without a fight though since they're both appealing and still proclaiming their innocence.
I think they think we're stupid. The whole world can clearly see why that payment was made to Platini and why it was made at that time, and it definitely wasn't for services rendered 10+ years earlier.
Why was it a verbal contract? Why not write it down? Why would Platini accept such a contract without it being in writing? Why was he finally given this payment at that particular time when they'd been making massive profits every year after Platini left the service of Blatter? Why did Platini withdraw from the presidential race, pledge his support to Blatter, and vote for Qatar all after being paid that sum of money?
Plus they were both apparently oblivious to all of the corruption going on around them, despite them being at the top and in charge of their organisations.
Like I said, I think they think we're stupid.
