The End of FIFA’s Credibility
This must be the end to Sepp Blatter. This must be the end to the reign of corruption at FIFA.
Never has the sports world seen such a spectacle. Officials being carted off for arrest as they arrive for an international conference. Can FIFA ever regain its credibility?
A couple of thoughts.
1) Full kudos to Jens Weinreich and Andrew Jennings. They have been saying this for years. They said it and wrote about it when few would listen.
2) Why did it have to be the Americans doing this long-awaited law-enforcement action?
The gap between what European police must have known about FIFA and their actions is huge. In that large gap is a vast number of untold, uninvestigated stories.
3) In Canada, the laughable gang at the Canadian Soccer Association has supported FIFA and CONCACAF throughout every single manifestation. When match-fixing was revealed here in Canada, these people went to Zurich to ask FIFA executives their advice on integrity!
4) Be careful of the FIFA spin. They and their pet media monkeys will try to pretend that they started this FBI investigation. Ha!
Finally, where are the sponsors? Where is Coca-Cola, Adidas, Visa? Why have they tolerated this nonsense?
It is time to put a stop to this corruption.
