Podcast: Why I Hate Inter: Calciopoli Edition

Some people don’t have any idea why I hate Inter so much. It goes well beyond sport, it’s not just a cross-town rivalry for me. Most people don’t seem to know or remember the events of 2006 and the scandal known as Calciopoli. Fewer people know Inter’s role in this scandal, let alone how they benefited from it. So with the Derby on the horizon, this podcast is all about why I hate Inter.

So many reasons to hate Inter

Jonathan was the mastermind behind this special podcast, and he was patient enough to listen to my ranting. We talked about:

• Calciopoli: who was involved, who was punished and why, the legal shortcomings, the people behind the scandal, the “Paper Scudetto,” why the injustices haven’t been corrected, and the impact on Serie A

• Inter and Racism: the latest douchebaggery

• Coming up: upcoming matches
