TheSteezyKoalaThis is pretty huge for soccer. Fifas corruption has been known for a while now but this is the first time anything has been done about it. Hopefully the whole organization gets revamped or a new International Footballing Association is made.
mirozNot the first time, the article said that FIFA has "weathered" plenty of corruption investigations. This is the first time that the US Federal Gov't has gotten involved though.
I think it's great, and more can be done. Toss those fuckers in jail and put the stolen money back into the world's sport. It's bullshit that Blatter is walking and talking like all this is well and good for FIFA, when really there's no way that any of this went on without him knowing about it. Hopefully he's not reelected, but apparently he only has one challenger and is expected to win a fifth term.
las.I hope Blatter is literally shitting his pants right now, because he should be.
CamembertHe is not. People that are so f*cked up think they are above the law, untouchable, especially after so many years of being in control and getting away with everything, they will do everything to get what they want, its all or nothing. Blatter could have walked away with his pockets filled but thats not what someone like that craves, they are power hungry, addicts, and they want more and more. If things go wrong or the heat is up and they get away with it, they love that feeling even more. Its like adrenaline junkies, they want more and more. Blatter will never walk away, he is not scared, he is an addict with some serious personality disorders.
las.I hope Blatter is literally shitting his pants right now, because he should be. Interesting to see where legal proceedings, and the tournament itself will go from here.
LonelyHonestly fifa is one of the most corrupt organizations. It's also difficult to expose/do something about it because they are more or less the biggest.
*DUMBCAN*It's just kinda weird that he's resigning so soon after being 'elected' president again.
Laurent.He probably just wanted to be re-elected, so he can step down himself, go down victorious.
CamembertGreat day..but only time will tell what will happen.. I think its weird that he still wants to change stuff untill there is a new president. Who wants that? What will he do? Its just wrong..
Lets hope investigations will not stop and all filthy dicks get what they deserve..
90053he can help ensure the president elected after him is one that will cover his tracks, which would be disastrous
