In an unprecedented fact, the past season the FIFA decided to expand the term of the votes for the Balloon of Gold until 29 November. The manoeuvre looked for blatantly benefit to CR7, the only finalist that had not won at all that course

The year happened the FIFA decided to change the rules of the game, almost at the end of the game. In an unprecedented fact, the maximum organism of the world-wide football expanded the term for the votes of the Balloon of Gold 2013. Behind this manoeuvre hid an evident aim: benefit to Cristiano Ronaldo in his fight with Leo Messi and Franck Ribéry. Justo the day that Cristiano Ronaldo signed a hat-trick and classified to Portugal for the World-wide, the FIFA of Joseph Blatter surprised to the world with a very controversial decision. Taking advantage of the injury of the best player of the world, and seeing that the bets gave like safe winner to Ribéry, the FIFA decided to adulterate the prize expanding the date for the votes until 29 November.

The measure means that those who had not voted still, could do it, and those that had not sent his votes to time, could change them. By those dates, the FIFA and France Football sent a circulate to seleccionadores, captains of selection and correspondents of the French magazine, informing them that had "prorrogado the term of acceptance of votes with the end to guarantee the representation of the means selected and of all the associations member of the FIFA". Well, this year it seems that to the FIFA does not matter him "guarantee the representation of the means selected and of all the associations member of the organism" and will not expand the term. Why?

Although on the paper almost all gave like favourite to Cristiano Ronaldo, the Germany champion of the world and overcoat Leo Messi turned into legend could have changed radically the stage. The two consecutive records of Messi -maximum goleador of the history of the Spanish League of Football and maximum goleador of the history of the Champions League-, in addition to sub-champion of the world with Argentina and Balloon of Gold of the World-wide, are sufficient merits to aspire to the fifth award for the Argentinian star.

In fact, if they expanded the terms for the vote the result could give an unexpected twist. We remember that Cristiano won the past Balloon of Gold without having attained any title to collective level, this yes, received a deal by part of the FIFA that of not to repeat this season, would leave his prize under suspicion. Messi deserves to receive exactly the same deal that Cristiano Ronaldo the past year because the rules have to be equal for all or no?

These were the merits of Cristiano Ronaldo to win the Balloon of Gold 2013:

  1. ZERO titles in 2013.
  2. In League, with the Real Madrid, worse second of the history to 15 points of the Barça.
  3. In Glass lost against the Atleti home after 14 years and finish expelled.
  4. The final of Champions saw it by the TV by fourth consecutive year after Lewandowski painted him the face with 4 chicharros in Dortmund.
  5. The Supercopa also saw it by the TV (encouraging to the Atleti).
  6. Messi won him the Pichichi and the Boot of gold playing two months less.
  7. In a group with Azerbayan, Israel and Northern Ireland, had a bad time to classify for the repechage by behind Russia.
  8. It beats the record of penaltis in favour of the Real Madrid...
  9. Had a poster of 15 metres in underpantss in the City council of Madrid.
