Is the Vatican Against Andrea Bargnani Signing With Virtus Roma?

The website “Ashley Madison” (which is in the business of helping you cheat on your husband or wife) has offered to pick up the tab for Andrea Bargnani’s contract with Virtus Roma. It’s something that’s reportedly not sitting very well with the Vatinan (though they may be powerless to stop the transaction from taking place.) From Sportando: The deal to bring back to Italy and Virtus Roma, Andrea Bargnani is done. But the owner of the Italian team, Claudio Toti, did not say YES yet. The biggest problem is ethic. In a country where Vatican has big influence in any aspect of life (politics included), having as sponsor AshleyMadison.com, a website who promotes infidelity, is not easy. And Vatican City is also next to Virtus Roma facilities (the arena where the team is playing is also the main gym of the club). As Noel Biderman said to La Stampa ‘It is good if the Church would not enter in the business world’. Biderman, founder of the website AshleyMadison.com, who has been working for sports agency Interpeformances, explained also to Toronto Star why he is trying to bring Andrea Bargnani to Virtus Roma. ‘This pursuit came about for two reasons — I have some good personal connections in Italy having worked for one of Europe’s largest sports agencies (which is based there) and secondly, we have recently launched Ashley Madison into Italy — its 16th country,’ Biderman said in an email.’”

    Pau Gasol prefers the european style game, whilst God likes the athleticism found only in the NBA…!

    @robb – Well, without question Slam is the place for such ground breaking and revelatory and no doubt well researched accusations.
