Di Carlo banned for 'blasphemy' T

Chievo Coach Mimmo Di Carlo is the first victim of the new rules on ‘bestemmie’ – an offence to God considered worse than swearing.

The tactician has been handed a one-match touchline ban after he was caught using the banned phrase during Sunday’s 2-1 win over Cagliari.

The new rule was only introduced in the last couple of weeks and aims at stamping out the use of bad language in the sport.

When caught on camera, these comments are thought to represent a bad example for children watching and could offend adults.

Bestemmie are considered to be worse than simple swearing and regards blasphemous statements.

Lega Pro side Potenza have seen their Coach, Ezio Capuano, given a two-match ban for “repeated blasphemous phrases in protests against the referee.”

Are the people ruling Serie A living in the 16th century or something? What a bunch of morons. :thmbdown:

TV probe may be used to find out shouted bestemie, yet it can't be used to decide much more important situations... :depress:
