I've just heard about it, its really shocking. This Luciano Moggi guy sounds really scary, looking the referees after he didn't like their judgment, threatning reporters not to say anything bad about Juventus :eek:

The most annoying thing that in the end he won't be arrested because of all his power and money.

Its a staggering story from what I hear...HUGE. I hear talk of the guy having direct influence of a host of clubs, having a major say in who wins what and when who signs who...

Again, we aren't talking about fixing particular matches here and there, but whole seasons and the destiny of numerous clubs being mapped out not by fate but by immense corruption, the kind of thing you normally see in Pro wrestling!;)

That it can take place oone of the world's great leagues with one of the world great teams is all the more shocking.
