    Good question Harpie. Ankaraspor were expelled after their relationship with Ankaragucu was deemed to be ‘contrary to sporting competitiveness’. I am not entirely sure what this means. The issue apparently started when Ahmet Gokcek was elected chairman of Ankaragucu. Gokcek is the son of the mayor of Ankara, Melih Gokcek, who is coincidentally also the honorary chairman of Ankaraspor. Rumours spread that the two clubs were going to merge. This did not happen, but the league’s discplinary panel decided that it was against sporting competitveness and so expelled Ankaraspor.

    What happened to these Ankaraspor jokers? They must have done something pretty terrible for this to have happened.
