Chapecoense's dignified fight against relegation, in the shadow of disaster, is as admirable as their rise

Marcio Araujo looks on during Chapecoense's Serie A match against Botafogo.
Three years after their air disaster, Chapecoense are on the brink of relegation.

Chapecoense are sipping at the last-chance saloon on Wednesday.

With 10 rounds to go in the Brazilian championship, they are deep in relegation danger. Last week, goalkeeper Joao Ricardo left the field declaring that the "Chapecoense supporters will have to get used to the idea of playing in the second division." At the weekend, Marquinhos Santos, their third coach of the campaign, admitted that "we can't try to deceive our fans. We have to be realistic. The situation is very difficult, but at...

In such circumstances, it seems crass in the extreme to state that Chapecoense are fighting for their first-division survival this weekend. Such metaphors lose all their meaning when measured against true tragedy.

Nevertheless, there is a connection. Because all of the emotion engendered by the disaster needs to be channelled somehow. And the...

The plane crashed on Nov. 28, 2016, on a mountain in Colombia just a few miles from Medellin. On Friday, Colombia's Civil Aviation Authority presented the findings of a 15-month inquiry.
