What would I do if I was a self-interested Greek? I'd vote YES for more Euro loans. Otherwise the cash dispensers dry up completely. :D

A YES (Nai) vote keeps Greece in the Euro, and the Syriza free-spending commie government falls. Germany has lost patience....

What, you're saying those 350 Lb defenders are going to lumber 100 yards up the field just for two points! :confused:
