It would have been easy for a chairman to fly off the handle following the innocent mistake by the linesman last night. I’m sure several other men would have issued death threats.
The Bianconeri would’ve gone 2-1 down at the Bentegodi had Alberto Paloschi not been wrongly flagged offside.
It was reported Chievo President Luca Campedelli came down after the game to reassure the linesman who made the error.
“Chievo’s sense of fair play is impressive and everyone should follow their example. We were lucky today, because the situation went our way. Having said that, I hope the media won’t go over this incident again and again while ignoring decisions that go against Juventus, such as the penalty on Carlos Tevez with Lazio. We want to help the referees, whereas the media want to cause controversy.
Imagine a world where everyone behaved this way. Wouldn’t that be nice.
