    It's in their DNA :-)))))

    Remember calcio scomesse of 1980? The one that sent bbilan to Serie B and earned them the nickname? Sure you do!

    Well you can take the club away from the betting but you can't take the betting away from the club. Milan is contemlating as their new sponsors...(drum-roll) Betandwin.com!

    Word is out that Albinoleffe, Pescara and Cesena are already preparing their stadiums for the big event!

    Not too sure and too busy (lazy) to check out what does "scomesse" means but I think it was due to the great incident in which Milan were relegated to Serie B and played there in 81/82 for some bribery case in the previous season, the 80/81 season.

    It was also called the "Totonero" case.

    Toto= a popular betting game, dunno if it exists outside Europe.
    Nero= black.

    It was a match fixing scandal which involved Milan and Lazio (I think) and both got relegated. Milan got back the next season, only to get relegated "on their own".
