Hope he hasnt made a deal with law enforcers to tell them everything so he walks free.

IMO it shouldn't be ling until they start squeeling on each other to save their skin and everything will unravel.

If this happens, i wonder if the russian and qatar world cups will still go ahead
Through decsions that the corruption Blatter and his compatriots have made with these world cups, 1200 workers, should I say slaves have lost their lives in Qatar. IMO Blatter and co are partly responsible for these deaths because its not like the didn't know about the rampant human rights violations routinely conducted in these gulf oil nations. They ignored them, looked the other way and put the money in their pockets. Scum.

I think they will keep the world cups there till the point countries and more importantly sponsors bail.

That image seems to be comparing specific constructions with 5 years of a whole countries contruction. It still has merit though.

Yeah last 5 years of migrant workers deaths in qatar vs previous major events.

The designer obviously chose this method to skew results in favour of their argument. However knowing that many migrant workers do not keeo their passports or immigration papers i would assume this number is even higher as its much easier to make these people disappear off the grid.

He's staying on til the end of the year apparently until this "extraordinary congress" is selected.

Seems to be a load of BS still.

Warner admits to supplying evidence and claims an avalanche is coming.

Also claims he knows why blatter is stepping down.

Now its truly begins, every man for himself.

About bloody time.

Again, I won't be satisfied until heads roll and we have some real and positive change in governance.

Fifa sliding deeper into the abyss.
The shockwaves from the corruption scandal that brought down Sepp Blatter continue to reverberate, with claims in Germany that the 2006 World Cup vote was influenced by a shipment of rocket-propelled grenades and allegations in Egypt that a Fifa executive solicited bribes during the 2010 bidding race.

I wonder what the bets are on FIFA being dissolved and a new international body being formed?
