One of the main claims to the sports press is "Why doesn't anyone really find out what's going on with Beitar Jerusalem?"
Let's put aside for a moment the constant insults to the sports reporters - justified or not - and try to understand together why no media outlet, at least at the moment, has come to investigate the "truth" of Beitar.
In contrast to ridiculous bodies like the budget control, where even a monkey with cymbals who does not speak Hebrew can move a group, here the Israel Police is involved - sorry, the elite units of the law enforcement agencies: LAH 433 and HA - think when was the last time there was such a number of law enforcement agencies Involved in the sale of a soccer team in the Israeli leagues.
The figures who are currently involved around Beitar are mostly those for whom encounters with the law are their "good morning". The detention center is no stranger to some of them. The crime in its offshoots is not something that sports reporters come across in their routine.
Esoteric things like selling games in the lower leagues are not of interest to the Israel Police, and even so it is an event that is on the fringes of Israeli sports.
Who are interested in the lower leagues in Israel besides the people in the industry and gamblers?
The obvious comparison is of course to the Juventus game sales affair, where the press was mobilized in part to reveal the game sales of the largest team in Italy.
Here the story is completely different: the police know that there is decay around Beitar and physically prevent the continuation of the combine.
The owners of the teams in Israeli football, and everyone involved, do not want to see Beitar break up, because it is a loss of millions of shekels for all the teams. The Israeli police do not need the help of sports journalists who routinely boast of scoops on the signature of a failed Macedonian brakeman, to crack the mystery This one is clear to everyone, by the way also to most of the sports media.
The point is that most sane people who love sports, and there are many of them in soccer and Israeli sports, would not be happy to wake up with a horse's head in bed.
It's all about football, something that serves as an escape for us from reality on the weekends.
We have enough of the combines and slime in the other sections of the newspaper, on the website and in the app.
When was the last time such a number of law enforcement agencies were involved in the sale of a soccer team in Israel's leagues?
