My 2 cents on the civil complaint vs #CR7.
Feel free to respectfully agree or disagree but only if you've read the complaint please ✌
Tagging @OmVArvind because his article forced me to read up on the issue.
I feel like so many people are misinformed about Mayorga's case vs Cristiano as detailed in Der Speigel. First of all, it's not a criminal case, it's a civil case. The news that the investigation has been reopened doesn't mean that a criminal case has been filed.
Here are some basic differences between a criminal and civil case:

This is a thread about the rape allegations vs. @Cristiano: About our research @derSpiegel, about Ronaldo's reaction and a little insight into why the alleged victim Kathryn Mayorga speaks out about the case nine years later. This is the story btw:… 1/24
We had hundreds of documents from different sources: e-mails, medical and police reports. we put the story together: In 2009, Mayorga accused Ronaldo of rape. She said she was too afraid to say his name to the police & to go to court b/c she feared harassment by #CR7's fans. 2/24
Her unexperienced lawyer (specialised on traffic violations) hacked out a deal with high-profile lawyers who usually have Hollywood clients. They settled on $375.000, Mayorga had to be silent and never mention the incident ever again. #CR7 stated that the sex was consensual. 3/24

Messi arguably is more skillful than Ronaldo but Ronaldo brings more to the table than Messi. A more determined character, more dedicated to improve, more motivated to win. Did you see that perfect free kick from a distance? That 3rd goal differentiates him from everyone else!
I'll NEVER undermine Lionel Messi. I believe he's the most talented footballer alive. I've a soft spot for his club FCBarcelona. After Liverpool FC, they're my next best club but...If there's anyone that has benefited from Messi in this game, it's Cristiano Ronaldo!
Ronaldo has character & is innately wired to strive to be the best. He has used Messi as a standard to better, & has through determination, hardwork, endurance & strength of character, perfected himself in the game to arguably favorably compete with him ATM.
