Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

They should disband the whole organisation and start again with completely new people. It's the only way to be absolutely sure they've gotten rid of all the bad apples - the current ones at least.

Abso-bloody-exactly, I concur. But it would take a few years to perform.
Glad Platini is probably out of the running. He's already 60 years old (not far off retirement age) and hardly fresh blood that is needed. And many many of the other FIFA members are dodgy and part of the gravy train.
How about the English FA taking over? They are the ones who have been voices crying out in the (h)interland and stood up alone at congress against the incestuous FIFA set up for several years now.

I think as a retirement gift FIFA will give Blatter (the multi - millionaire living on Zürichberg who has everything) his own tropical island with no extradition treaties with Switzerland or the US).
Any other leaving present ideas?

Good idea
BTW, the English FA today issued a statement saying they stand by Platini

Complete waste of time.

The only way to stop this is to place a limit on the power of individuals in society. And we all know that aint going to happen unless the whole human race is geneticaly re-engineered to be immume to corruption.

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

Wonder what will happen to sepps museum? Maybe they can change the theme? House of horrors.

Reminds me of what happened to Robespierre. FIFA is about to do the same, eat its own.

Read "lord of the flies" then get back to us on your opinion. No dice mate. Leaders are born as leaders. They are not taught. At least that is how it works in a corrupt world.

Good try though.

Sepp will get deleted from the list of those invited to the opening, his name will not be mentioned in the Museum and the memorial statue will only be erected in 20 years right in the middle of the Tessinerplatz and bear the text FöRDERER DES FUSSBALLS

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

I saw an article on Reuters that Platini is now making veiled threats that the truth will be known. He sounds like the indignant Jack Warner as the noose tightened:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/...0S215X20151008

Then I read a link on Reuters about the current scenario on Zürichberg where Blatter is writing down his ideas on how to clean up the organisation he's headed since 1998 in his computerless office with a nice pen and a light blue jacket on in front of a photographer while the people in charge at FIFA now are the lawyers.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/...1282ZS20151008

In the article it says Blatter's home town was in a Valais village called Ulrechen. On the map I notice that he is halfway between Furka and Bitsch ;-)

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

I forgot the guys name but its my understanding it all started with him. An elderly bearded FIFA man. Once the americans had him the whole house of cards went down. I thing cancer was the cause of it all. He is about to die. Hence his final action in life. I dont know if he is still alive.

But as an avid reader of books on these types of people its realy no surprise. And I dont think sepp is feeling good now. As mentioned the noose could get anyone now.

Domino effect. With people who have a lot of power in america out for blood.

I thought warner was hilarious. Very funny YT video. The music was very appropriate given that the noose is already got him. Or so it appears...

I think we all should wait and see if sepp realy does go to heAven. Lol.

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

About "Platini is now making veiled threats " People with money always have the potential to hire top/expensive lawyers.
Only the results from any such actions will show if this were to be an effective approach.


For example, look at Mörgeli's legal reactions to being fired. It cost us, the tax payer, millions but so far as I know Mörgeli only benefited from an extra 3 months salary?

You mean chunky Chuck Blazer who first rolled over with the US investigators.

Is this the funny Jack Warner video? John Oliver's spat with him (I am sure this must already bave been posted elsewhere on EF):

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

Seems there is an investigation into the award of the 2006 World Cup to Germany.
There was a payment of almost euro 7 million to FIFA from Germany; nobody involved seems to know exactly what the money was used for; but everybody knows it was not used for bribes

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

The Football Association has formally suspended its support for Michel Platini’s bid to become Fifa president following a briefing from lawyers representing the suspended Uefa No1. ?????

This sort of removes the "bottom" from a lot of positions?

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

According to the German magazine "der Speigel" Germany is accused of buying 2006 World Cup with legend Franz Beckenbauer and German FA chief Wolfgang Niersbach implicated in 'very serious' claims: FIFA ethics committee are claimed to be investigating!!
Price was around euro 7 million

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

According to Tagesanzeiger here (in German language) top Zurich judges and prosecutors got tickets to FIFA football finals at the prices printed on the tickets; which were much less than the average foot ball fan had to pay.
