    One thing that this article talks about a little is how some clubs find the whole influx of players from the scandal unsavory.
    That didn't occur to me at all. To me that's a part of the punishment for these clubs for participating in match-fixing to begin with.

    Really? I didn't know that, I've only watched European club soccer for over a year now though. But couldn't you make the argument that by taking these guys off their hands, they are helping them out?
