Bidone d'Oro, Italian for the "Golden Bin" or "Golden Trashcan", was a tongue-in-cheek prize given to the most disappointing player in Serie A at the end of each calendar year. A play on Ballon d'Or, the European Footballer of the Year award,[1] the winner was chosen through votes by listeners of the Catersport show on Rai Radio 2.[2] The prize was first awarded in 2003 to Rivaldo of Milan,[3] and was discontinued in 2012 when Catersport went off the air. The final Bidone d'Oro was awarded at the end of 2012 to Alexandre Pato following a vote on the discontinued show's Facebook page.[4]
