Blatter……….Can Anyone Believe It?

May 29, 2015

Somebody please tell me that this latest farce is just a joke and we will all wake up tomorrow and find sanity and honesty, integrity and equity have prevailed and Blatter has been sacked along with his cohorts.. How can FIFA continue to direct the global football scene under the auspices of a man so mired in corruption and ineptitude? How can anyone have ANY faith at all in ANY decisions or processes that emanate from FIFA as long as Blatter is in control. I read today that the journalist who gave the dossier to the FBI which prompted the arrests also handed some stuff in about Blatter and he is waiting for Blatter to be interviewed as well. I REALLY HOPE SO!! It is a disgrace of global proportions and an affront to every fan of every team. Worst of all is the widespread nepotism that prompts so many African and Asian countries to support Blatter and deny him being responsible for any of what has happened.

Until a clean sweep is made, until every last one of the top tier of FIFA has been replaced and everyone involved in any corrupt deals et al are charged and dealt with there can be no respite for FIFA;  Blatter MUST be thrown onto the rubbish heap of disgraced officials, the pile will be very high and he should be at the top of it!!

It is at times like these that I am glad I am not a football fan!!

If UEFA stick to their threat, and drop ALL involvement in this corrupt regime comically called FIFA, then the sponsors of FIFA will have to do what they say they would do if Septic Blatter was re-elected  commissar of FIFA. And that is to drop all their sponsorship for FIFA, and perhaps the football world will then revert to the sanity which ruled before Blatter got involved, and peace could well raise its battered head and assume control of all that is "Football" once more. Methinks Blatter has the belief that only HE can run this massive organisation, rather like Hitler believed that HE was the man to rule Europe, and even the world. Then civilised people with common sense and willpower will finally reach the decision that Blatter Incorporated should be cast aside once and for all time by the common, and not so common, citizens of the world. And I am drawing up the plans for a fleet of one way spaceships to Mars, (since I did an aerospace design apprenticeship before I became a squaddie...) for Blatter and all loonies. ( I did think I should try to make a full size state of the art flying tank at one time, but my garage was not really big enough, and the neighbours were complaining about all the noise, so I stopped that idea...

Our only hope is that once extradited, some of those accused will turn "whistleblower" to save their own miserable corrupt skins & tell the truth re Blatter's involvement. Even if ( & pigs might fly) Blatter is innocent, he is ultimately responsible for ALL FIFA dealings, especially with the choice of World Cup hosting nations, and must therefore, on principle, step down. No-one can believe he didn't know what was going on - if he did, he needs arresting, & if he didn't, then he should be sacked for ineptitude. I personally think he's as guilty of being "on the take" as the rest of them. John (JKW)

There is one single string running through this whole criminal bunch called "FIFA", every single manager in FIFA HQ and representatives from FIFA affiliated countries are in it over their heads as far as dirty dealing is concerned in the running of world football, and the one solution would be to close the beast called FIFA, but only after a sanitised organisation is created. All the African countries who supported FIFA in its denying of all accusations are responsible for this fiasco going on for so many years by ignoring the warnings from most other nations in the world. Blatter, as head boy of FIFA is totally responsible for the actions and dealings of every single memberof his management teams, whichever country they represent. Compound culpability in all its devious activity. He and his senior management team MUST go, as must the actual culprits themselves. It is only the African nations who supported Blatter en masse, working in line with his senior HQ cronies around the world. I do not think that Blatter was NOT  involved in dodgy financial dealings, and he must be first to go. The world of "SPORT"  must also ensure that such activities can never flourish anywhere in the entire world ever again. Sports spectators pay vast amounts to support their chosen sport and team, and deserve to be protected from such dealings as those of FIFA. It could be called Theft by any other name.

Yesterday he was "going forward with FIFA", he was decrying all his detractors and defiant in the face of any criticism. Suddenly he is resigning because not everyone is behind him??? Anyone want to hazard a guess why the sudden change of heart. He is, allegedly, now on the FBI list of people to be "interviewed" could that have any bearing on the newest developments I ask myself??

The only things I can think of which come anywhere near the smell of corruption within FIFA would be those dreadful fly infested outside bogs in El Adem!!!. The only thing which could have removed the smell and flies would have been a nuclear strike.. At least I escaped a full term in El Adem when the Cyprus Sqn needed a Radio/Comms Sgt!! Saved by the lack thereof!! I am sure the flies were the size of crows... It would be a great relief if Blatter, if found guilty of corruption could be detained at the desired punishment centre to suffer inhuman conditions for the rest of his life. As for the rest of his gang, they deserve the same fate too, if and when found guilty. Roll on sanity and honesty.
