After all of the hullabaloo, who here still thinks soccer/futbol is an absolute bore?

Ha ha the Germans blew Brazil apart 7-1, it was like the blitzkrieg all over again.
It was about time the myth of Brazil's invulnerability was busted forever..Smile

@tsarstepan,

Quote:
The Guardian’s Josh Halliday has this summary of today’s developments, including details of those arrested.

Jeffrey Webb, president of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) and a major figure in Fifa politics, was among those detained. His predecessor, Jack Warner, was also arrested, according to the New York Times. The others held by Swiss police are: Eugenio Figueredo, a Uruguayan Association football executive and former footballer; Eduardo Li, president of the Costa Rican football federation; Julio Rocha, a Fifa development officer; Rafael Esquivel, president of the Venezuelan Football Federation; José Maria Marin, president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, and Nicolás Leoz, the former South American football president. Another suspect was named as Costas Takkas. Up to 15 officials are understood to be under investigation worldwide, so the arrests on Wednesday morning may be just the start.

As Wil Anderson tweeted this morning - the media should save us time and tell us when FIFA isn't being corrupt.

@hingehead,
Apparently there is no surprise for those that know the leadership. It was nearly common knowledge the level of corruption.

@ehBeth,
Thanks for the update.

I'm actually shocked he did that - arrogant SOB that he is. Also shocked no news of this is on ESPN...amazing! I'm scrambling to see it confirmed or even reported on.

[Edit: ahh..just found the first one:]

@ehBeth,
Buzzfeed confirms it as well:
http://www.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeednews/russian-president-vladimir-putin-accuses-us-officials-of-med?bftw&bffb&utm_term=4ldqpgp#.ttDn9JoZk

That's one weird url since Putin's name doesn't appear in the article.

@Ragman,
I'd suggest following CBC and the Guardian on FB. They're usually the fastest these days.




(I think they've got really good social media people there)

@ossobuco,
Wouldn't that be a pissoff?

I'd love to see how much he has to give back of the $10m of the recent scandal. And how much he gives back of his absurd unlisted--unlimited salary.

@lmur,
Sepp Blatter's own 'fifadom'.

I loved his 'let's go fifa' chant. Gave it three goes and then died when no-one joined in.
