Really? What for? A bar fight? Know many people who got thrown in jail for a bar fight do you because it's exceptionally rare for people with little or no previous history.

Only Blatter would have his organisation shown to be corrupt to the core and still avoid leaving his position. The press releases today from the Director of Communications about how it showed FIFA were on the right path and how it was great for football were just bizarre. Shades of the Iraqi guy on the roof proclaiming the land free of US tanks.

Some of the stuff Sky are reporting is bizarre as well. They are saying it's highly likely Blatter will be re-elected regardless of his administration being proven to be corrupt. Only FIFA...

As football gets stronger and more popular in the USA the FBI pounce. Could it be that vested interests in US sport and its partners have influenced law enforcement? Who knows, maybe Sepp has been out-Blattered?

It wouldn't surprise me. There's incredible money in football. The kind of money that finance likes to get hold of e.g. tax-free. The Israel suggestion wouldn't shock me either.

UEFA saying there should be a postponement is like trying to take down an elephant with a feather. They should stand up to him irrespective of what the other FAs say. Blatter needs kicking out, the whole thing needs reforming and its ethos changing.

FIFA could be a fantastic organisation but all this tax-free corporation bits, shafting countries with infrastructure then not given them tax, buying off FAs, ticket prices, attendances, greater transparency in voting etc. It could be a forward-thinking, world-leading organisation that uses its immense funds to energise different societies i.e. if you want to work with FIFA and have a world cup in your country then there are certain minimum requirements that must be met. It becomes an organisation that gives a genuine legacy, which Blatter constantly yaps on meaninglessly about.

First and foremost in those are human rights. I know it's sport but it has a responsibility to those who participate in it, both legally and morally. Currently it operates outside that sphere. If it were any other corporate organisation it would bow to customer pressure and conform. However, FIFA being the monopoly that it is will do what it wants. Where else are you gonna get your football? That's where UEFA comes in. Change or UEFA should break away. It's got the money and the players. The MLS would follow and then after that FIFA would be stuck. Two big cash cows like those gone would break it I think. Sweep the deck clean.

I reckon either the FBI or the Swiss have something on him for sure. No way would he do such an abrupt about turn without it, he's far too stubborn for that. Wouldn't surprise me at all if Sepp has agreed to fall on the sword in exchange for not being named as corrupt and also ratting out his cronies.

Nice to see Raheem knock a few noughts off his valuation. Bet his agent is in tears :)
