Only Italians Will Resign Over a Sleazeball

This just in: Fabio Capello has resigned from his post as England's manager.
Over the past few weeks, we've heard grumblings of unhappiness from the Italiano because of the English FA's decision to strip John Terry of his England captaincy. For the second time.

People in cars = sh*t happening
Allegedly, Capello was going into a meeting with the FA today to fight for his captain. Oh my captain! Oh my word, why? His captain, who had sex with a teammates wife (captaincy stripping #1) and supposedly taunted Anton Ferdinand in a racial way (captaincy stripping #2). John Terry deserves to be stripped of his captaincy. Hell, if this was anywhere but England, a country that desperately needs to field their best players no matter what since they find winning impossible, Terry might have been kicked off the team after captaincy stripping #1 (i.e. see team USA World Cup 1998, John Harkes).

Capello resigning before a major tournament is unbelievable. For England, this is terrible. This means a predecessor will have four months to instill his system into a team. This also means there will be so much pressure surrounding a fragile locker room; a media circus! What is wrong with England?

I believe the FA was correct to strip Terry of his captaincy, but they really should have done everything they could to keep Capello at the helm, for the sake of the team's Euro 2012 health. On the other side of the coin, I think Capello is a sleazy moron for backing the proven dirtball John Terry.

So...everybody loses?
