Italy-Serbia Fiasco: UEFA punishes Slovenia, Estonia, N. Ireland, Faroe Islands

UEFA’s decision to award Italy with a 3-0 win is not fair no matter how you look at it, and I don’t care what Serbia think.

Serbian fans crossed the line; their actions were against the better interest of sport, and the punishment that Serbia received is just. Serbia deserves to forfeit the match and to have to play its next two home fixtures behind closed doors.

The actions of the supporters were disgusting.

Italy did not come away unscathed, as they were fined 100,000 euros for their security failing to contain the rowdy Serbian supporters.

But no matter what Serbia did, Italy does not deserve a 3-0 win, not so long as this competition is supposed to be fair for Slovenia, Estonia, Northern Ireland, and the Faroe Islands, the other four national teams in Group C.

2010 NFL Week 5 Picks and Podcast

Ok so week 4 wasn’t so great but we held our own against the ESPN crew and they only pick straight up. Ryan’s 9-5 against the spread last week was one of the best around the interwebs. This week’s lineup of games is really weak. Out of 14 games, there are maybe 3 worth really paying attention to. Nevertheless, we’ve got insight into every game, crappy or not. (The games that is, not the insight.)

The featured games this week are KC @ Indy, NY Giants @ Houston, Tennessee @ Dallas, and Minnesota @ NY Jets. We also discuss the MLB playoffs.

This week’s NFL betting odds are from Betus.
