Backhanders and brown envelopes, it stinks and then re Qatar he tries to play the race card, he's pathetic !

FIFA/Blatter are rotten to the core! And it pains me, being a big fan of the 'beautiful game'.
Cheers, Akro.

Jokes are funny. There is nothing amusing about Blatter, a corrupt piece of vermin, a disgrace to the fine and proud nation of the Swiss, and a disgrace even to the dirty business that football has become.

He is horrendous.

We know quite a few football 'personalities' through my (ex England international!!) wife's work with the FA. Most of them who deal with him loath him. No surprise I suppose, but there we go.

I believe his main claim to fame previously was that he was number one in the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation or somesuch.

Don't know if this has been posted already but great summary of FIFA by John Oliver over the weekend.

There is a potential bright side to this. The Qataris have already spent big money in-country in preparation for the world cup.

If they get it taken away from them, then they will sue FIFA. If they win, they will bankrupt FIFA with their claim for compensation.

If they lose, then it will be because FIFA will have to admit to taking bungs. FIFA lose all credibility and have to fold.

Either way Blatter will be history, along with the rest of them.

He is indeed. Unfortunately, he's also a very effective politician. I'm not saying he's personally corrupt, but he's allowed a culture to develop in which many of FIFA's power brokers have far too much to lose by throwing him overboard. He gets to stay in charge and they get to keep on filling their boots....

ESPN's story has Blatter promising "FIFA member countries bonus payments from 2014 World Cup profits. The tournament revenue will approach $4.5 billion for FIFA." Out and out bribery if you ask me.

According to Newsnight I think it was Qatar cant sue FIFA because they sign some kind of document to that effect before they are allowed to bid or something,nowt to stop em declaring a Fatwah agin the fat bastard though.:E

Can he be charged with theft from the thousands of people in South Africa who ended up worse off because of FIFA's greed and corruption after the 2010 football there?

Statement from Blatter to the effect that FIFA will rule on the matter by September or October and then the matter 'will be closed':-

FIFA will rule on the validity of the bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups in September or October. At that point, the president of football's world governing body said, the "matter will be closed".

The man is an example of how disgusting the Swiss really are (not being racist or anything). ;)

He should have been imprisoned years ago. Still we have Bliar and the Americans have their consciences (if they have such) and a bit of Blair.

Damn it, let it rain...

This is the stuff these people do...

In years of yore somebody would have simply used a garrote.

The world as it is disgusts me. Blatter is just one aspect of the toxin.

My O/H's brother in law works at FIFA.. A bigger, more loathesome and generally vile piece of rat snot than Blatter, you will struggle to find.

On the bright side, when adidas are taking him to task, then he really has upset people and genuinely under threat, as adidas more or less fund FIFA and their daily lavish expenses.

The latest anthropological research indicates that fists may have shaped the human face.
BBC News - Male faces 'buttressed against punches' by evolution (http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-27720617)
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/brv.12112/abstract;jsessionid=765DDD62E65C3AA8EE62A7A872D9DB5A.f02t02

May I volunteer Mr Blatter's face to test this theory?

It would seem logically to recommend sampling a wide range of fists from all racial groups.
Repeating scientific experiments is always a good idea to improve reliability.
I suspect we will not be short of volunteer punchers. ;)

May I also refer readers to two possible meanings of the word 'Blat'


Blat (term) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blat_%28term%29), a form of corruption in Russia and the Soviet Union
Blat (Romania) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blat_%28Romania%29), a term denoting a fixed match in Romanian football

I'm embarrassed that he's Swiss.

I think FIFA should be disbanded. If we really need a 'World body' create a new one based on national football associations. One country, one vote. Each national vote to be determined by public (i.e. not secret) majority voting within each association.

And none of this England, Scotland, Wales, NI, crap. One country = UK. (If Scotland leaves, that's OK but until they do ... )

The FIFA headquarters in Lausanne are located in a prime lakeside position within a nature reserve or similar. Funny how they managed to build it there.........

Backhanders or what.


Oh and 20 years ago FIFA had ten staff, it now has hundreds if not thousands. Why? All it does is sell rights to the world cup. Never makes any real footballing decisions.

There used to be a saying that patriotism was the last refuge of the scoundrel

These days patriotism has been replaced by playing the race card. Just shows how desperate Blatter is that he's had to resort to it to try and cover up the rottenness in his own organisation.

How come a Swiss buisinessman, with no background in football became FIFA's boss?

Surely the head of FIFA should be from a country which has actually striven for, or won the World Cup, who has a proven dedication to the game, as well as a track record of unimpeachable business success. Sir Alex Ferguson perhaps, or someone of his ilk.

Gnome Blatter, along with a number of his cohorts, should be arraigned.

Er, they didn't. It's in Zurich not too far from the Zoo.

UEFA, on the other hand has a prime lakeside position, without a nature reserve or similar, in Nyon (halfway between Geneva and Lausanne)

"How come a Swiss buisinessman, with no background in football became FIFA's boss?"

Simple answer: Everyone associated with Blatter (Cronies et al), benefit

Same rule of thumb applies to Bernie Ecclestone and the Olympic committee. Where there's freebie's, junkets and gifts - corruption and 'Sweetners' will exist

Oh and many want a piece of the action - Platini for one

Just heard the septic bladder on the news saying that he 'feels the pain' for Luis Suarez, the thug who bit someone during a 'game' of the toxic business that he heads up. What sort of a message does that send, although at this point it scarcely makes a ripple in the ocean of corruption that he presides over?

As Blatter took his place in the stadium in Rio for the prize-giving, he was resoundingly booed. That might send a message.

Or ... yes, he could consult an expert, one of our own, to find out how that fat little Field Marshall (sic) runs things during his own stadium appearances, when never a boo, not even a muffled sneeze, can be heard over the cheers of throngs.

What about the idea of Blatter and Ecclestone tied back-to-back, to be dropped into a shark tank before cheering throngs? Okay, animal rights and all that, but I still think it's worth considering! I would buy a bootleg ticket from FIFA for that.

It is quite appropriate that a 'game' which involves kicking a pig's bladder around should be presided over by one!
