LOUD SCANDAL IN BARCELONA “DENOMIC PLAN” TO DISTORT MESSI

A loud scandal in Barcelona “demonic plan” to distort Messi

 

A “scandalous” report from Spain revealed that Barcelona club contracted a specialized company, in order to tarnish the image of a number of the legends of the club, including Argentine Lionel Messi, on social media.

According to the “La Lutia del KT Juges” radio program, which is issued from Barcelona in the Catalan language, the Spanish management of Barcelona contracted a company specialized in social media, in order to discredit a number of the club’s legends, in the interest of its current president, Josep Maria Batomio.

The report said that the administration had two main goals in contracting with the company, namely, to protect Bartomio’s reputation, and to discredit a number of people closely related to the club.

The administration has contracted with the company, “i3 Ventures,” which manages dozens of “undocumented” accounts on Facebook and Twitter, which were used to attack the team’s stars such as Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique, according to the report.

The assault campaigns from these accounts included Messi’s criticism of his demands during the renewal of his contract with the club, in addition to the attack on the activities of his wife Antonella, and Pique’s “preoccupation” with sponsoring the Davis Cup tennis championship, which led to his preoccupation with football, according to “Forbes”.

The campaigns also included the attack on the former team’s coach, Pep Guardiola, and the former team star Xavi Hernandez, who was a candidate to take over the team months ago.

“Campaigns of attack” included exposure to the club’s presidential candidate, Victor Font, who is Bartomio’s main contender for the upcoming elections.

Barcelona denied, on Monday evening, that it has anything to do with these accounts on social media, and demanded the radio program to officially back down from the information it provided.

The shocking report comes at a time when the club’s administration is floundering in dealing with its first star Messi, who entered into a conflict with sports director Eric Abidal, weeks ago, due to the latter’s criticism of the players.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. TRYING TO FLYING AFTER PLANE CRASH 2019

Dale Earnhardt Jr. trying To ‘Get Over’ Fear
Of Flying After 2019 Plane Crash

He’s trying to minimize both these days. Earnhardt said Sunday before the Daytona 500 that he has changed his approach to flying after a harrowing crash landing near Bristol Motor Speedway this past August. Earnhardt, wife Amy, daughter Isla, dog, and two pilots escaped the fiery jet in east Tennessee. Earnhardt was physically unscathed but emotionally scarred.

“It’s really tough on me getting back in the plane, and it will never be the same now that you know the real realities and dangers,” he said during a wide-ranging, 24-minute interview.
“It will never, ever be the same again. “Something you will never be able to forget and never block out no matter how many flights you take. For me to be able to get back in there and go and do and travel as I want, the only way I can do it is really was to get into the details.

” Earnhardt has tried to learn everything he can short of becoming a pilot. He did a deep dive into his jet’s capabilities, specifically regarding how long it needs runways to be for takeoffs and landings.

And he’s checking detailed weather reports days before stepping on the plane. “I’m diving into the deep end trying to learn everything I can about the plane’s ability and the decisions they make and why they make them,” he said. “It’s been extremely educational, as you could imagine.


“I’ve learned so much in such a short period of time. It’s kind of empowered me and given me more confidence in what we’re doing and that we are safe and that I am going to be safe as opposed to …

I don’t want to just quit flying; I don’t want to just quit getting into an airplane. I need to get over that fear and work hard to get through it.” He spoke to a number of people about his experience, and the advice he heard repeatedly: Keep getting back on the plane and in the air.

“I just sort of have to figure this out on my own, and it’s working out pretty good so far,” he said. Earnhardt retired from full-time racing after the 2017 season and is now working as a NASCAR.
