FIFA officials arrested on corruption charges

Recommended Posts

Honestly, this actual news is good. Soccer, at the end of the day, will be around for centuries... it's really not going away nor can it be dragged down by a handful of bureaucratic clownshoes.

Ppl talk about American football as being bigger than its league, 'the shield', & that's true enough to a point. Soccer? Child please, this is a drop in the bucket.

Maybe they should ban them for 4 days' work, take away their parking spaces, & fine them a million dollars yes?

Good. Keep them arrested. They're lowlife idiots. FIFA's whole reputation is finished.

This is the first negative post I've heard from you Crowking/Fishplatter. Congrats

"These events show, once again, that corruption is deeply rooted in Fifa's culture," Uefa said.

99% of my work is in Banking compliance (including limited AML and FCPA work)... This whole situation fascinates me. My business life and sports life rarely, if ever, intersect.

That being said - where was the Audit and Compliance committee in all of this? They have a presentation online talking about "self regulation" that was published last year. The main question was, is it still sustainable for FIFA to be a self-regulating body. I guess the answer is a loud "No". Reading the (probably) limited charter on FIFA's website for the A&C Committee, it looks like there was a tone at the top where compliance was not a priority to "upper management". Only making sure the final financial statements are right is mentioned in there, that should be the tip of the iceberg for a compliance committee - especially considering FIFA probably has limited users depending on their financials.

Please, pass the popcorn on this one!

I don't think any multi-billion dollar business enterprise can be trusted to be self-regulating, so of course FIFA can't.

Any word on the FIFA officials, upon learning they were going to be arrested, if they fell to the ground in pain before the cuffs were placed on them?

True, but the NCAA's corruption looks like amateur hour, pun intended, compared to FIFA (in fact pretty much everyone is an amateur compared to FIFA). I mean the NCAA has not been responsible for thousands of deaths, displacing thousands from their homes, creating kangaroo courts that convict men to prison for 15+ years in under two days, etc... etc...

This has been an interesting little scandal, but then I was just thinking, "hey, international financial conspiracy, by now shouldn't someone be blaming this all on the Jews somehow?"

PORT OF SPAIN (Reuters) - Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has blamed Zionism for the circumstances that led to him and former Asian Football Confederation chief Mohammed Bin Hammam being forced out of world football.

Warner, 68, resigned from FIFA after ethics investigations were begun into a meeting he held with Bin Hammam where FIFA say payments were made to Caribbean soccer officials ahead of the election for FIFA president in June.

Qatari Bin Hammam was handed a lifetime ban by FIFA for his role in the affair while a number of Caribbean officials were given suspensions last week.

Bin Hammam was not immediately available for comment.

Trinadadian Warner says in a letter to the Trinidad Guardian, which will be published in full on Tuesday, he intends to speak out on the affair and highlighted who he felt was to blame for his downfall.

"I will talk about the Zionism, which probably is the most important reason why this acrid attack on Bin Hammam and me was mounted," Warner told the newspaper.

The train's never late!

That article is also from 2011. So, not exactly relevant to this exact discussion.

That's exactly what the Jews want you to think!

But really, this is big news and I really want some major things to come from this.

How many of those FIFA officials arrested will roll over on ol' Sepp? I'm thinking most of them.
