Default Bargnani Close To Deal With Virtus Roma

http://www.thestar.com/sports/basket...ashley-madison

Andrea Bargnani is close to an agreement with Virtus Roma that would extend during the lockout.

Virtus Roma has received a proposal from AshleyMadison.com to finance the signing of Bargnani. The Canadian website specializes in extramarital encounters and would cover the cost of Bargnani's insurance.

Bargnani is already in Rome working out.

Ashleymadison.com is covering his insurance? seriously?

I remember a while back when we had a 'debate/discussion' about that site i think in the podium forum.

That's kind of funny/interesting.

If you are wondering why you suddenly have a burn and itch down low and a cold sore up high.....your spouse has may have been using Ashley Madison.

Even if t doesn't happen, its' free advertising.

Well, it would be much easier for me to see him play live.
Anyway, italian newspapers say he could be playing in Rome till december or till the end of the lockout. The last word is on the team ownership.

That site's got to be loaded up with single guys who can't get none. That's a George Costanza plot waiting to happen. What makes them think these are all married people sneaking around? hehe

European-born NBA players have had an advantage during the lockout. As American free agents attempt to find jobs overseas, players like Timofey Mozgov(notes) and Andrei Kirlenko have signed elsewhere with little problem. They know that world better than most and are more equipped to get a deal quickly with a franchise they know to be welcoming.
Raptors enigma Andrea Bargnani(notes) should be one of those players. Recently, he has attempted to work out a deal with Italian club Virtus Roma, which needed to work out a sponsorship deal to finance Bargnani's considerable salary. They finally found one in AshleyMadison.com, a perfectly normal website that helps people schedule extramarital affairs. What could ever be the matter with that?
Oh, right, Virtus Roma's facilities are right next to Vatican City, so the Catholic Church may have some sway over the decision. The Italian outlet Sportando reported the story in poorly translated English (via SLAM Online):
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.

A website to schedule extramarital affairs, hah.
Got to admit though, it's a nice marketing strategy. They probably saw this failing with Vatican being so close. But it sure gives exposure anyway.

Uros Slokar was a decent player for us back in the day. And as the president of his fan club, i'd like to think that your comparison is not one of mockery, but one of genuine analysis.

I think Uros takes it.
