Yes. It just about floored me when I heard a commentator for the World Cup mention that Berlusconi had offered amnesty to the players involved if they won the World Cup.
Does UEFA have any power in these matters? If Italy can't fix it's own problems, maybe they need help from outside.
Can you imagine how the 1919 Black Sox would feel if they had had someone like Berlusconi deciding theif fates rather than Judge Landis?
