The talent, the gossip, the inside track
Celso de Campos Jr
Do you remember the refereeing tandem Paulo César de Oliveira and Maria Eliza Barbosa, who let Adriano’s 'Hand of the Emperor' goal stand? Well, Palmeiras’ intervention prevented them to be considered for work on the São Paulo State final, but they somehow managed to be selected to officiate the Minas Gerais match. This time, even bad refereeing like theirs couldn't prevent high-flying Cruzeiro from running over Atlético. But, once again, the duo took center-stage. Just take a look at the kits they donned for the final.
Fair enough. For lousy uniforms for lousy referees – probably approved by Ronaldo’s transvestite friends.
