its all bs. just because juve is dominating in italy, other people make rumours like that... if your looking for conspiracy look at milan. their present is the pm of italy and thier vice president is the president of serie a... im not saying that there is corruption, but you can point to milan just as much as you can point to roma, juve or any other club.
However, people have said that how can a club that has won 27 serie a's, only have won 2 cls. that what most people say to back up their statement. but the fact of the matter is: juve have been in lots of cl finals, but just lost in the last game... i just tell them to look at how many times juve have been runners up in cl, then they stop talking and turn around
He/she will sure have, but talking about favours, you are right about that Milan fact, PM ... I don't know what to think. Just that the team is owned by a premier who isn't too loved in Italy and maybe this is the cause of non too obvious favours accorded to Milan.
Yes, but you know, this is what usually happends with big teams, or better said, with successful teams.
E.g. Romania was never favourised by the referees, exactly the opponent. I don't complain though, because a good team has to know how to win despite the refs. Still, remeber the Byron Moreno case and here you go, have a classic case
Whoever said its all BS is being very naive. Refereeing bias comes with the territory of supporting a big club, and Juve are the biggest club. It doesn't discredit any of our achievements but you have to live with the other fans excuses.
Of course we're being favoured! Football is inevitably intertwined with politics and money, especially in Italy. I remember the polls showing a decrease in votes for Berlusconi everytime Milan lost prior to the last elections in Italy.
But we're not the only ones who are being favoured, don't worry.
All big teams are favoured at the end of the day. During the 97/98 season, when Inter were claiming there was a conspiracy to make Juve win, I remember the Inter website listing down around 13 referee 'mistakes' which went towards juve's way.
Lippi said it best when he replied: "Inter are listing 13 mistakes made by the refs in our favour? I could list 13 other mistakes where they got favoured"
That's so true, cos whenever there is a mistake in favour of Juve, all hells breaks loose, but when it is in favour of other teams, then it's jsut a mistake
Yes there is some favourism, but it is cause Juventus is the team who won more and is more respected... I think the same happen with Real in Spain, ecc... of course when a big team play vs a small one when the referee is undecided he do not want to go vs the big. Is normal... also in European cups is the same.
4 Roma... I don't know... there weare some ref's mistake but actually Capello get mad even 4 a lateral fault, so...
