Juventus to be fined €20m for not stripping out wire

  • September 21, 2021

It has emerged that Juventus will be fined up to €20 million for not removing the wire from the football stripping machine that it used during the Juventus’ Champions League final defeat to Napoli.

The Turin-based club, whose record-breaking Champions League triumph over the Italian champions was marred by a string of red cards and a host of other technical errors, has been accused of failing to remove the wire, which is known as a ‘red ball’.

Juventus’ technical director Massimiliano Allegri has denied that the club deliberately failed to strip out the wire and said he was shocked that it was not done to protect the integrity of the game.

“We are not aware of any other team not being aware of the wire on the machine.

It is the same for us, I am sure, of the team who won the championship,” Allegri told reporters on Thursday.”

When it comes to removing the ball, it is the player who needs to do it.

That is why we always do it, it does not change.

If a player is not conscious about the rules, it’s the same.”

He added that he had spoken with his players and the team management and would discuss the matter further.

The Italian FA has launched an investigation into the incident, which will also determine the sanction to be imposed on the club.

In total, 14,092 red cards were recorded by the Juventus squad, with three red cards to Alessandro Nesta, Marco Pappa and Luca Donnarumma.

“It is an insult to the game, a slap in the face, to the fans and to the Italian football community,” Allegria told La Repubblica.

Juventus won their first trophy in over 20 years in April, when they beat AC Milan 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.”

We have a long history, we are an exemplary team, and we have won everything we have ever won.”

Which of the GOP’s top GOP senators will vote against Kavanaugh?

  • July 29, 2021

The Republican leadership has already indicated that if Democrats filibuster the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, it will likely be Senator Susan Collins, who has been one of the party’s most reliable and vocal supporters of the nominee. 

But now it appears that Collins might not be the only Republican who is likely to vote against the nomination. 

Several sources close to Collins, who is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told The Hill that the committee will likely vote on her nomination in the coming days, which could lead to a vote on the nomination by the full Senate on Thursday. 

The news came as Collins announced that she would be joining the growing list of senators to oppose Kavanaugh, who is the top choice for the Supreme Court nomination.

On Thursday, Collins said that she and the other GOP senators have been working to develop a plan to confirm Kavanaugh, which is expected to include several procedural votes.

The move to delay the vote comes amid a growing chorus of Democrats and others who have expressed concerns that the Senate should not hold hearings on Kavanaugh’s nomination, which has been stalled in the Senate over the past two weeks.

A number of Republican senators have also indicated that they might not support the nomination in its current form, with Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) calling it “the most egregious abuse of judicial power in the history of our country.” 

While Cornyn is likely just expressing his personal opinion, it seems clear that Collins and others in the Republican leadership are not willing to wait for the Senate to conduct a full investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh. 

As of Wednesday, Collins had not officially announced her opposition to Kavanaugh, and instead has been holding a series of press events to promote her support for the nominee and to speak about her experiences as a victim of sexual assault and abuse.

Collins and other Republicans have also spoken out against the idea of Kavanaugh being confirmed, calling it a “fraud” and “coup” attempt by Democrats.

The White House has said that it is concerned that the Democratic filibuster would create a “constitutional crisis,” and that Democrats would try to make the nomination permanent by voting to change the filibuster rules.
