"We were locked in the changing rooms for two hours after the game to avoid the protests. There is too much exasperation in Italy, too many interests that force you to look only at the results. It's not fun like this."
-- Bepi Pillon, coach of Italian Serie B club Ascoli, which feared the wrath of its fans after a grand display of fair play. Ascoli's players stood aside and let Reggina's Biagio Pagano score an equalizing goal because Ascoli had taken the lead with a goal by Vincenzo Sommese after an injured Reggina player tried to put the ball out of play so he could receive treatment. Reggina ended up beating relegation-threatened Ascoli, 3-1 (Irish Times)
