Okay aghaye tarikh shenas, the discussion stemmed from someone saying that they doubt any of the earnings would even reach the players and coaching staff. When the government doesn’t even pay its own workers for months, do you really think that team Melli’s earnings would stay where they belong? That was the point of what’s being discussed, and it’s damn true. Thread started getting derailed when someone dragged America into it for whatever reason.
