Juventus Quashes The Stars DebateBy: The Offside | July 11th, 2012
The Serie A champeens revealed their much anticipated shirt – it’s a Jeep thing – today and lo, no stars whatsoever, putting the kibosh on the “two or three” debate.
Of course, they might just be courting more controversy by slapping ‘30 sul campo’ - 30 on the pitch – underneath the badge.
Status quo for Juve and all.
The Old Lady were expected to add a gold star to their previous two after winning the Scudetto last season, but they’ve instead opted to take away the symbols altogether.
“We count our success and it equals 30,” President Andrea Agnelli noted. “Then we look at the calculations of the Federation and we realise that it comes to 28.
“As we don’t agree, we chose to take the stars away because we don’t recognise such arithmetic.”
I don’t know any old ladies who can do arithmetic anyway. Symmetry.
