Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter and his continued assault on the corpse of world Football

I have a lot of respect for Sepp Blatter.......o no wait, I actually think he is a waste of Monkey sperm and is the Gaddaffi of World Football.

FIFA has been corrupt for years but have always just ignored the allegations against them and carried on stuffing 1000 chf notes down their shirts. However this time it looks like they may actually be in a bit of trouble.

Firstly the Sunday Times said they had a whistle blower from the Qatar World Cup bid. They sent a letter to Parliament and are presenting evidence to FIFA
http://www.parliament.uk/documents/...%2009052011.pdf

Then the former head of the FA stood up and said FIFA are corrupt
http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2...ifa?CMP=twt_gu

The FA decided they would protest by not voting in the up coming FIFA president elections
http://www.football365.com/story/0,...6941109,00.html
This apparently confused our hero, Sepp Bellend Blatter.

Then Sepp said he once handed a bribe back
http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2...er-fifa-reform

Chuck Blazer - the most American sounding person ever, came out and said Jack Warner tried to bribe him and also Bin Hammand bribed FIFA members to get Qatar the World Cup
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/13544347.stm

Then FIFA started investigations against Sepp's opponent to be FIFA President, Bin Hammand who unexpectantly responded by saying...if you find me guilty then I am taking Sepp down too.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2...a-sepp-blatter
Sepp came back with a weird reply about Swiss Farmers,
http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/...fa-sepp-blatter


At the time it looked like it would all blow over as normal.....and then this little gem turned up this morning. Jack Warner had been a silly boy,

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/13559384.stm
Quote:
New evidence obtained by the BBC appears to back up claims by former FA chairman Lord Triesman of wrongdoing by Fifa vice-president Jack Warner.

Fifa's ethics committee could now be asked to open another investigation.

An e-mail from Warner to Triesman in February 2010 is expected to form a crucial part of an FA report.

In it, Warner urges the FA to contribute towards the cost of purchasing the rights to show World Cup matches on giant screens.

Lord Triesman, speaking to a parliamentary select committee earlier in May, claimed four members of the Fifa executive committee made what he described as "unethical requests" during the bidding race for the 2018 World Cup.

Among those claims were allegations that Warner asked the FA for money to build an education centre in Trinidad and for the FA to buy TV rights to the 2010 World Cup on behalf of Haiti.

In the e-mail, he writes: "If you can assist them in any way by contributing in part or in whole to the purchase of these rights I am sure all of Haiti will be eternally grateful."

He mentions that a company had bought the rights for $1.6m (£980,000) but that he would be able to "get this figure reduced substantially".


JACK WARNER'S E-MAIL TO LORD TRIESMAN

Dear David

My apologies for this belated response to your wonderful offer of assistance to Haiti for which I am really pleased. The people need all the help that we can give. I made a visit to Haiti last weekend to meet with the President of the Haiti FF to ascertain first hand the needs of our football family. A report has since been done which outlined their needs and proposals to meet these needs in the short, medium and long term. The report is included for your information. Based on this, I will leave it up to you to determine the best options of the FA as to how you all can assist.The FIFA, besides financial assistance, is providing them with large TV screens placed at two football stadia (at which stadia football can no longer be played in the immediate future) so that all Haitians can see the 2010 World Cup. However before the earthquake owner of the rights had charged them $1.6million USD for the rights, a fee which they had agreed to pay. I have since spoken to the owners and can get this figure reduced substantially. If you believe that you can assist them in any way by contributing in part or in whole to the purchase of these rights I am sure all of Haiti will be eternally grateful.

Thanks again for any assistance you can give and I do look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards

Jack

------------------------------------------------------------

Fifa, the ultimate owner of outdoor broadcast rights to the 2010 World Cup, has told the BBC that no public viewing licence was ever granted for Haiti.

It says it had no discussions anywhere in the world for an amount as big as $1.6m, but its response poses serious questions over the deal Warner was trying to arrange with the FA.


On Wednesday Fifa announced its ethics committee would charge Warner and fellow executive committee member Mohamed Bin Hammam with bribery.

And although it is not clear whether Fifa's ethics committee will add this latest allegation to the charge sheet faced by Warner, it places yet more doubts over the probity of world football's governing body.

Warner has not responded to the BBC's attempts to contact him regarding this story, though he did deny Triesman's previous allegations.

Meanwhile, Fifa president Sepp Blatter, writing for the Inside World Football website, stated: "I take absolutely no joy in seeing my friends and colleagues of many years dragged before the ethics committee.

"I take no joy to see men who stood by my side for some two decades, suffer through public humiliation without having been convicted of any wrongdoing.

"Nobody is guilty until a judge has found him guilty beyond reasonable doubt."

The FA has launched its own inquiry, calling in QC James Dingemans to compile a report for Fifa.
Adidas released a statement saying they were worried about FIFA
http://www.google.com/hostednews/can...?docId=6965589
Not feeling so Jabulani now are we Adidas?

Then amazingly it actually got interesting and FIFA have called the 3 most powerful men in to answer questions.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/foo...committee.html
Quote:
Blatter will appear before Fifa's ethics committee on Sunday to answer charges that he knew about alleged cash payments, the world governing body have announced.

The charge has been made by Bin Hammam, his rival for the Fifa presidency in next week's election, who will also be at the hearing to answer a charge of bribery.

The latest development means that the three of the most powerful men in world football - Fifa vice-president Jack Warner has also been charged with bribery - will now appear before the ethics committee on Sunday
Due to past experience I expect nothing to happen but surely this time Switzerland has to kick FIFA out of the country or force them to open up or something.

Also should FIFA elect any of these men next week as their President?

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

Nothing will happen, and as for Switzerland kicking out FIFA it will never happen. If it did then half (if not all) the Drugs companies in Basel would have to go and there wouldn't be any banks left in Zurich.

Yes FIFA is corrupt, as is the IOC. But will anything ever be done? No. Too much money involved to rock the boat.

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

Of course the vote for Russia & Qatar to host the world cup had nothing whatsoever to do with the attached - no sir - members were naturally voting for the two places most football fans were desperate to visit. And you see I always said there were no cash payments - nothing so dirty. Maybe some metal was dropped.

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

The farmer quote from Blatter deserves to stand on its own, so here it is in all its glory.

Quote:
"When a Swiss farmer's neighbour has a cow while he has none, the less fortunate farmer will work twice as hard so that one day he can buy a cow as well. When another farmer, elsewhere, on an island, say, has no cow but his neighbour does, that farmer will kill the neighbour's cow out of sheer malice. I'd rather be a Swiss farmer, like it or not."

Sepp Blatter as usual will promise some strict and serious negotiations into the matter, and serious consequences for anyone found guilty. There will be a press conference. And thereafter a lot of silence.

All the things mentioned above have already been reported the day after.

and in regard to FIFA, some anti-Blatter-ites want to take FIFA away from Zurich. This is the reason why people here rather unite behind Sepp Blatter .. whatever

I fixed that for Sepp.



P.S. If you're a Swiss farmer, don't have a cow man.

This one is a true gem and one probably needs to know a bit more about Adidas and Blatter to put this one into context:

Blatter has promoted Adidas for a very long time - in exchange for very high sponsorship fees. When I say "promote" I mean: Deducting six points from Cameroon for wearing innovative Puma shirts unethical clothes. Fifa actively helped Adidas to stay the major supplier of many countries... and actively tried everything against Puma and Nike.

If you know that and read the press release again, it simply says between the lines: Stop bitching around, the noise is bad for business.

"I tell you something, in the next couple days you will see a football tsunami that will hit Fifa and the world that will shock you."
Lets hope it washes him away.

Unfortunately Bin Hamman pulled out of the election this morning, in what looks like a deal to me.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/mobile/wor...-east-13587449

This means good old Sepp will win by default. I suspect what will happen in the hearing today is that Bin Hamman will get binned and everyone else will walk away innocent and Blatter will claim it is a great day for football.


EDIT> Also whilst waiting for Sepp to be found innocent have a look through Chuck Blazers blog, the man who is bringing the accusations today.
Halloween is quite a highlight.

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

My favourite bit of the FIFA fiasco was the answer to this question,
Q. "So why do you believe Mr Blatter?
A. "Why shouldn't we believe him?"

Also this
"We were not concerned with establishing the guilt or innocence of the parties accused," says Damaseb. "What we sought to do was to establish whether there appears to be a violation of the Fifa code of conduct."
http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/b...isis-live-blog

because children, FIFA rules are better than real laws.

He may be corrupt (in my book, not Fifas) but everybody else is in on it too, otherwise this house of cards, as you rightly call it, would have been brought down ages ago. I wouldn't trust anyone within Fifa that claims to be squeaky clean - less actually than the obvious morally amiguous ones... (sp?)

Of course it is solved by now. The other guy pulled out and is not running for FIFA president anymore. So Blatter is running against what? Thin air? of course he will win.

A simply case of "my corrupt network is stronger than your corrupt network"... just like real life politics.
