I don't find anything infamatory or offensive in what Cairo said. Whoever wrote the headline was trying to stir things up.

I don't know who rules Torino as I've met people on both sides and I've met people in Torino who really don't care about soccer at all.

It's a shame about the Derby but if Juve gets their relegation overturned then perhaps we will meet them after all and decide who rules Torino on the pitch!!

I have walked the streets of Turin and found greater enthusiasm for Torino than I ever did for Juventus barring in the odd pub during matches. Now I suppose it could have been that I found myself predominantly in the part of town and its pubs, bars, restaurants and theatres where most of Torino's supporters live. That still wouldn't change the experiences I had the times I was in Turin.
Well im glad you are talking form your experience, but most arent. As you say depending on where you happen to be when you talk to people the outcome is different, there are areas to the north east where 90% ale Milan supporters, areas in the south that are predominently samp and genoa fans... It varies...

But then even that experience does not account for the fact that in this supposed toro city... Juve attendances over the last 60 years are virtually allways far higher and for the most part around twice that of opur city rivals...

Not too mention of course the various polls (generally pretty equal or slightly juve) that are regularly printed in the local press... especially one recent one carried out by a certain toro supporters clubs weekly paper, who canvassed over 100000 people through various means over a six month period that found a 60/40 split in juves favour...

But the mai n point is that so many people say that we have poor crowds because the city is granata... Yet their attendances are worse than ours... So where does this come from.. What is this based on...

Apparently the city hates us and loves toro, yet even less people goto see them... Does that make sense ? I dont think so...

All valid points except perhaps the attendances of which I don't really know how many people are from Turin. I've met people when I lived in Salerno who regularly went to visit Juve's home games (and of course their away games if they happened to be in the region) and I've met people in Florence with season tickets. God only knows how many supporters stream into the Delle Alpi every two weeks from Liguria and Lombardia. So you can see why (together with my experiences of the city of Turin) I drew the conclusion the city is predominantly Granata.

I can see why Torino can never forget their past, why so cynical of Juve's succes? Its not like Juve rigged the plane or anything.

Anyways I have always rooted for Torino, it would be a great match to watch if Turin had their own "giant rivals" like Milan and Rome.
