The decison has been handed down in the Italian match-fixing case. These decisions are still subject to appeal, but here they are, as of now:

Juventus- stripped of the league championship of 2004-5, and 2005-6, demotion to Serie B, and a 30 point penalty to start next season (meaning, they will probably remain in Serie B for at least 2 seasons). It's not specifically mentioned yet, but I would also assume that they will not be eligible to take part in the upcoming Champions League as well.

AC Milan- 44 point deduction from their point total of 2005-6 (knocking them out of any European play), and a 15 point penalty for next season. They get to remain in Serie A.

Lazio- Demoted to Serie B, 7 point penalty to start next season

Fiorentina- Demoted to Serie B, 15 point penalty to start next season.

Juventus have already announced that they will appeal the decision. Juventus feel that it is too harsh a punishment for the crime. They are lucky they were not sent to Serie C as rumored.

All 4 teams have launched appeals that will be heard beginning on Saturday.

However, even if the appeals are accepted, and the penalties are reduced, it is unlikely that any of the 4 will be playing European football this season, as the deadline to submit clubs for competition is on Tuesday the 25th.

Busch signs with Gibbs Racing (cincypost.com) I'd been wondering where he'd end up after being pushed away from Hendricks. I kind of hoped he'd join his brother at Penske, but he can't go wrong with being on the same team as Tony Stewart.
