I was just looking up some information about Señor Ramon because of his claims about Real's nine European Cups. As it turns out, there have been allegations of match fixing throughout the 1956-1960 seasons in Europe. Now I'm not saying it's not possible, but I find it extremely hard to believe. The fact that Franco was in power during that time doesn't help.

But that's the past, about Calderon himself... He was only ever the president from 2006-2009. A span of 3 years during which Madrid won 0 European Cups. So he was never responsible for, directly or indirectly, any of Madrid's European successes. That alone should give him a bit less latitude, yet somehow he still finds enough rope with which to hang himself.
