During the 2023 Brasileiro, SAF Botafogo was able to utilize analytical resources and third-party technology relationships of Olympique Lyonnais to identify an unprecedented level of referee bias and indisputable VAR errors that materially affected the final outcome of Botafogo's championship campaign. The strength of our analysis, supported by the latest in AI technology applications developed by the company GOOD GAME!, has produced credible scientific evidence of match-fixing, involving specifically identified game participants, that we believe will now yield a full investigation by prosecutorial authorities in Brazil.
now become the basis of credible claims of a match fixing investigation in Brazil that we fully expect will result in further investigation by the department of justice in Brazil of nd analyticaecent public comments regarding the Integrity of the 2023 Brazilian Championship were not inspired SOLELY by the disputed Red Card decision of November 1. Private conversations and formal correspondence between Botafogo and the CBF had been occurring for weeks, with no indication that CBF officials would take preventive action to assure that repeating errors between match referees and VAR officials would not continue to corrupt the results of the campaign.
As can be demonstrated by the below summary, the once commanding 'points' lead of Botafogo's record-setting campaign has been reduced...yes, by a 'return back to earth' after an unprecedented 14 wins out of 17 games, but also by an astounding number of obvious arbitration errors in critical games, resulting in the deduction of points from Botafogo and the addition of points (and red card advantages) to its closest competitors.
Ultimately, when it became clear in real-time that the VAR official of the Botafogo-Palmeiras game had intervened to argue for a Red Card for Adryelson, and such VAR official was choosing not to show the match referee the clearest camera angle showing the Botafogo defender's legal challenge on the ball, I chose to highlight in real-time the harmful intervention and corruption of on-field play by off-the-pitch parties whose incompetence needed to be challenged.
I made clear in my full post-game interview that I was NOT talking about financial corruption. I was suggesting that a heavy amount of error was corrupting our results, and compromising the integrity of the Championship.
