The bias against Italian football
And when I was going through my inbox, I found this picture, sent to me by one of my favorite bloggers Jon Worth. Sums up the aftermath of the World Cup, especially the debate in Italy about the bias against Italian football (why did Zidane get such a harmless punishment, compared to Materazzi, why was FIFA President Sepp Blatter absent during the prize-podium events when Italy had won, etc etc etc).
The Swedish-Italian author Marcus Birro has written two excellent articles [in Swedish] on the subject of the international bias against Italian football. Read the first one here (written before the World Cup started) and the second one here (written just after Italy's victory).
