    Did you know that Pedrag Bošković, the actual president of Buducnost, is also a member of the Executive Committee (EXEC) at the EHF …

    The punishment of Knezevic is preposterously low! It is shameful in point of EHF!

    Congratulations, it is the EHF at its best! By issuing a ridiculous 2 match ban for an act that is to be punished even outside of the handball court, they practically endorse streetfighting. Shame.

    Sad day for handball…
    EHF is pretty much encouraging
    a) brutality: headbutting (why not keep butchers in your team who can take out the crucial players from the other team??? – it is only 2 matches suspension)
    b) theatrical performance: please remember that Knezevic acted like she was injured too

  7. wat?
