That would be the case if 200 odd countries were not run by Mini-Blatters who have a stranglehold over their own organisations.

You could probably count on your fingers the amount of Associations that are not run on dictatorships.

The whole system is focked, right down to the regional/local associations and then down to the junior football clubs that prop them up.

Sadly all very true.

Bound to be some floating voters among that lot though, who aren't firmly inside Blatter's back pocket, who might be spooked by this morning's arrests and vote for the other guy? Or am I being too optimistic?

What we need is Gerard Butler to bring the whole corrupted diseased system down on Blatter's head 'Law Abiding Citizen' style.

Always predicted that the world cup would be taken off Qatar when corruption leaked out.  I was beginning to lose hope but might happen now. Fingers crossed.  I think they would have gotten away with it had Blatter decided to step down like he said after this campaign.  The fact he is going up again has pissed off a lot of people.

It will only be of benefit to the football fan if the finals are taken from Russia and Qatar and given to Germany and a joint bid by Georgia and Armenia.
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

At the very worst it shows that Sepp Blatter is wildly incompetent. How does he have the neck to still be standing

Richard Weber, chief of the IRS criminal investigation, now at the dais.

“This really is the World Cup of fraud,” he says, “and today we are issuing Fifa a red card.”

South Africa paid 10 million in Bribes for the World Cup.
The main sponsors bribed people to maintain the sponsorships. Think of all the long term sponsors.
Brazil officials were bribed by Nike to keep the jersey sponsor.
An AFC Official (Bin Hamman) bribed people in the 2011 elections
The Copa America 2016 in the USA was the result of bribes

Chuck Blazer ratted them all out LOL
