    Hahaha. Some of the behaviour from Italy's football community in the wake of their loss has been ridiculous.

    BTW I strongly dislike football. I don't watch it. But I have seen the headlines.

    Well RAI is a huge Italian Network. They paied a lot of money to distrubute the game to Italians all around the country. Then they lose in the first round to South Korea.....Ok thats just weird enough. I hope they do file suit and I hope the FIFA organzation goes down and dies out. And then maybe someone else will form a bigger World event with Soccer (Football) and then it will be back to normal....Thats a dream of mine

    One more thing. The FIFA Organzation has so much money its not going to matter how much they file suit for. If they file suit for the rules then maybe that would be better than for money.

    I don't think lost TV revenue will be a valid cause to win a court case.
