This has gone on for a while in the wrong place so write about it here....

My view is that there should be at least 3 Italians in the team regularly

Thats where they play. I have nothing against having italian players in a side if they are good enough. But forcing sides to have players from a certain is just wrong imho. ;)

Thats where they play. Just cause we happen to play in italy doesn't mean we have to have italians in our side. BTW what constitues italian anyway?? Is it only those who can play for the national side or does it include those like cambiasso and burdisso with italian passports??

Meaning of racism:

The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.

How the federations imposing a 3 Italian player minimum is racist is beyond me!

By setting a limit that a certainplayer from 1 certain group must be in the side is diffently racist. Its saying even thought the other 1 might be better he can't be in the side cause the other 1 is from that country so he must be choosen above him hence they are saying he is superior to him.

FORZA ITALIA!

What crap?? Being open and fair to everybody?? Thats not crap. Protecting some little group is crap. And thats what this is.

And I really couldn't care if it only affects us and milan. This rule is immoral. And I am very please it will never happen. Thank God for the eu. :proud: :stuckup:

Good job with the lineups! :thumbsup:

You all know my thoughts, so i wont bore you with that.

And to hell to those EU laws. Italia is Italia, Italia is not EU and EU is not Italia. As far as i´m concerned, Italia can do whatever (well, not whatever - you know what i mean) they want to their sport laws. If it´s racism to use three italians in one italian team, then i´m proud to be a racist.

So Tommi, if you are an Arsenal fan, would you be unhappy when your team goes on a 49 match unbeaten run because the only English in the team are Ashley Cole and Sol Campbell? Would you rather choose Roma's path of a 2nd place season (03/04) and a crappy season (04/05) but with tons of Italians in your team like Cassano, Totti, Montella, Panucci, De Rossi, Perrotta, Curci, Cerci, Di Martino, Pelizzoli (spelling?), Ferrari, Tomassi?

Awful question. I cant imagine myself being an any EPL team fan. I despise EPL so i wont be answering that. :p

What would you choose, what would make you happier -> Seeing Inter win a Scudetto with 11 italians or seeing Milan to become second with 11 fogeigners? It´s almost the same question as yours... :finger:

It would be nice too see some home-grown Italian players, but frankly it's not a big issue with me as Inter has always been different than other traditional Italian teams. Their diversity (like it's fans) is why I love them and one of the reasons I started following them in the first place.

I can´t say that I have followed this debate over the days, so if I am arguing something that isn´t even on-topic, then just let me know.

However, I think that any rules containing nationalities should be strictly forbidden. If you create a rule for this, it will no longer be about football, but about human rights. If you reject a player based on their nationality, you will break the human rights rules. This is a very racist rule, and I don´t think it will gain Italy much at all. In fact, it would make the country even more facist and this is Berlusconi all over it.

But from a football point of view- sure it could gain Italian players. I´m assuming that everyone agrees on that it won´t really gain any teams, as they will be forced to approach transfers and everything in a very different matter.
I think the pressure on Italian players would even grow, and their confidence be shattered. While he might be honoured at first to represant a team like Inter, it would only be because he was born in the same country and not because he´s good enough. Therefore, I think the player would feel a bit weird by representing a team.

To make rules to strenghten Italy as a country, is pure and simple facism. Even in a simple workingplace, you´d be outraged if you were rejected the job only because you were black.

Amen! :star:

I have to disagree on some of your points though.

Even if this is true it would decrease the balance between big and small clubs. Hell, Lecce would at least have a chance at winning Scudetto and Sampdoria sized clubs have chance to be Scudetto contenders.

Could be true. ;) Still any such changes would undeniably make more and better Italian players in favor of Italia.

I had forgotten to transfer my points on this from the other thread. I pray to God I remember today. :lala:
