    sorry for a “spam” but any Turkish fans can look here:
    And yes, the arguments are stupid and I’ll miss Turkey in Eurovision especially when it’s held in my country.

    Dan you’re so pathetic. I think oikotimes has improved a lot the last weeks (at least) and i get the latest news about Eurovision first here. I have criticised oikotimes and its editors a lot in the past for their comments and very amateurish articles but what you’re just doing is outrageous. you are attacking Greece because Fotis is Greek? Get a life and grow up. If you don’t like the site, then don’t visit it.

    Btw, i totally agree with this article. TRT’s excuses for the withdrawal are so lame. They wanted to withdraw from the contest last year [due to the big failure in Dusseldorf] but they didn’t because the host country was Azerbaijan. I still don’t believe that Azerbaijan won because of the Turkish diaspora (Azerbaijan got nul from Germany, UK, Sweden and in general it didn’t get many points from Western countries) but partly because of the good draw while the favorite uptempo songs were all performed earlier. In general, it still remains a mystery, i feel that Sweden and Italy were robbed. My personal favourite was Germany while i enjoyed Slovenia, Ireland, Sweden, Italy, Denmark and Hungary.

    Dan I am happy you worry that much for our popularity and my grammar mistakes :-) and thank you for making us all laugh

    What a pathetic article. Now I know why Oikotimes has declined in popularity over the past few years. Fotis, you really need to work on your grammar a bit better because it stinks. I find it funny how you find the withdrawals ‘simply hilarious’ when lets face it, your own country is probably the one that’s struggling more then any other and if it wasn’t for ‘hand outs’ from Europe, I really don’t know what would have happened to the country. Greece is the country that should be pulling out of Eurovision, its absurd if they enter the contest when the country is in crisis – but then again, it doesn’t surprise me, they would rather their people starve then not to enter such a contest because lets face it Greece is glorious isn’t it and they MUST be in the competition.
