    The Italian rollover

    So it happened just like we all knew it would. Those severe, yet perfectly justifiable sentences handed out to the Italian cheaters have been reduced so much that the real effect will be for just one season, and in Milan's case not even that. Have the authorities missed the trick here, to show that cheating will NOT be tolerated? Will other clubs think its now worth the risk as the penalties are so small? And if it were English clubs involved, how long do you think UEFA would ban all English clubs from Europe for?

    I can't help thinking an opportunity has been missed by the Italian FA here......
