Soccer Player Chains himself to a Building



This past Friday Emanuele Pesoli of the Hellas Verona Football Club was handed a three-year suspension by the the Italian Football Federation for his perceived role in a match-fixing scandal. On Saturday Persoli who has denied his involvement in the match-fixing, started a protest against his suspension by chaining himself to the gate of the Italian Football Federation's headquarters in Rome.  Shaded from the sun by an umbrella and sitting in a chair Pesoli has also gone on a hunger strike.  By the looks of the picture, it does not seem like anyone, fans or the Italian Football Federation really care about Pesoli's protest.  Somebody send Pesoli a delivery pizza and a bottle of vino please.  Why didn't Kobe pull this stunt last year and cuff himself to the NBA office on Fifth Avenue to protest David Stern vetoing the Chris Paul to the Lakers trade?
