    This Italian wants to sue the Ecuadorean Referee for the Red Card dive in the World Cup Quarterfinal against South Korea. Some International court of law and Some of the Italian players as well as head coach Giovanni Trapattoni to be called upon as witnesses.

    If this case does happen and he wins, I think we should sue Hugh Dallas of Scotland for not calling the PK against Germany to allow us to get an opportunity to equalize the match.

    Seriously. I think this guy is a complete nut and should be sent to the funny farm.

    good idea...:D
    but honestly, it's hard to get over that hand ball (from which the US deserved the pk) because the US team were undoubtedly on fire and dominated that game...we could have won...

    Maybe he should sue Trappatoni for having a stable of elite forwards but choosing to sit on a one-goal lead. Heck, maybe he should sue a long line of Italian coaches for this tactic, which has kept them from winning more than one cup since the 1930s, despite their constant talent advantage.

    If this does happen in the states, we'll finally know that soccer has finally arrived.

    My favorite part of the article is the bit about Sepp Blatter. "He called on Italians to show dignity in defeat."

    Given some of the stuff that goes on around politics and soccer in Italy, this is relatively dignified.
