JWR:
Personally, I don't care if some international ball kicking game is corrupt.

But, WTF does that have to with America(US).

I mean the US cares little about Soccer.

I saw the video with the American Justice PR. They were so concerned about fairness in Football.

Ridiculous.

They should be more concerned with the corruption in their own country.

Don't they owe that to their taxpayers?





I understand they were concerned at possible deals being made within the US, and using their banking system. It was triggered after the internal FIFA corruption probe last year turned up...nothing

I am more interested to know why the Swiss authorities/Interpol have not acted themselves before now.

if they can get shafted for voting for the Prince then if he is elected , they can get rewarded.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

The whole thing is a waste of time and money, sack them all and shut it down. I would rather watch paint dry.
