Lazio rolls over

Lazio bent over and took it with a smile tonight, doing what they do best against against Inter: losing. In front of a crowd of Lazio fans cheering against their own team, they played like 10-year-olds at recess. This was against an Inter who was practically sleeping, having tired itself out with Barcelona earlier this week.

It will be interesting to see what the press reaction is to this, considering how anticipated this game was and how many people were wary of this exact situation. Not only is it a disgrace to the game, the fans, and everyone involved in Italian football, but it's illegal. Let's not forget that Italy is the home of calciopoli, (match-rigging -- the most famous instance of which was in 2006 when they took away the championship title from Juventus after discovering that they paid referees).
