Who says cheats never prosper?

Whilst away on my hols, I was saddened to see that the four cheating Italian clubs: Fiorentina; Lazio; Juve and AC Milan have had their, to my mind fair, penalties slashed on appeal. Wow. A gutless football authority buckling under pressure. That must be a first.
Now either these clubs are guilty of having cheated or not. Either they influenced results or not. Of course, they did - they were proved guilty, but now Lazio and Fiorentina are back in Serie A (at the expense presumably of two clubs who are not guilty of match fixing and cheating) and AC Milan will be permitted to enter the Champions League preliminary qualifiers.
Money talks...

I expected this to happen. It is obvious that the corruption goes right to the top. Why else would refs and Juventus' top swindler Moggi get only 4 year bans. Would you trust a ref that has been proved corrupt in the past? Nah neither would I, the scale of the corruption is stupendous. I doubt Italy honestly won the WC, that's how high it is. Does anyone think Sepp Blatter isn't bent as a nine bob note?
