having never profited from a controversial decision in their history, Juventus were understandably aggrieved Wednesday night when Real Madrid’s last minute penalty dumped them out of the champions league.
”Frankly the whole thing smacks of ‘dare I say it’ corruption “ Said Juventus fan Enrico Baldacci. “I know it’s a thing people never want to associate with the beautiful game of football, but no matter how outrageous and unprecedented an idea, the notion that a referee somehow colluded with a team to skew the outcome of a match has to be considered.”
“If we could all just calm down a minute and address the fact that teams have in the past been known to phone referees the night before to ensure favorable decisions during the game.”
” It’s not really important right now who those teams were or how long they were relegated to Serie B – what matters is when it comes back to haunt that team in the form of ironic punishment that it’s taken as utterly unfair rather than karma.”
Juventus return to defending their 34th consecutive Serie A title this Sunday.
