Congrats on making it through Monday. As a reward you now get to watch a visibly riled Sepp Blatter fall victim to a prank at his press conference in Zurich.
Cuba eliminates mother-to-baby HIV transmission. A-list Hollywood couple announce divorce. Greece defaults on IMF. Blatter to skip World Cup final. Arms deal inquiry: It’s a wrap. Lufthansa’s bad Germanwings compensation. Latest from Wimbledon.
As the wheels come off the FIFA machine they have taken the drastic step of suspending the bidding process to host the 2026 tournament. I thought Qatar were going to buy that one as well?
FIFA look to have set a date for their emergency meeting to vote on a new president. Definitely a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted but hey, it’s a start.
You know your fingers may have become too sticky when you’re trying to solicit bribes from just about everyone in the footballing world. Yep, more damning allegations against FIFA.
Over the past nine days we have seen FIFA fall apart at the seams and yet another example of our government’s denial in the face of damning evidence. Here’s your blow-by-blow account.
Another letter has emerged in the exchange leading up to the payment of the $10 million, this time sent by Danny Jordaan and calling officials out by name.
Trevor Noah is back on our shores and couldn’t resist the chance to get a few digs in at FIFA and Sepp Blatter. Over to you.
As FIFA executives fall like dominoes and begin to blabber Jack Warner has joined the chorus – although he still maintains his innocence in the face of overwhelming evidence.
I adore Gareth Cliff and his strong opinions. They’re usually the truth and are well backed up with facts. Much like this one, which has started a little Twitter war.
Yes, this is pretty much the proof we’ve all been waiting for – the explosive piece of evidence that lays bare our corrupt 2010 World Cup bid.
Blatter is knyping. Intel spending $16bn. Apple’s new streaming service. Malema sequestration withdrawn. Malaysia airlines not in good shape. Ferry with 450 on board sinks. Tracy Morgan’s first interview. New Harry Potter star revealed.
Whilst the indictment served by the US is yet to name exactly which South African officials were dishing out bribes, we may be closer to the truth.
It’s embarrassing enough being caught in the midst of a massive corruption scandal, but it’s even worse when you need help to pay your own bribes.
In what should come as a shock to absolutely nobody who follows football, corrupt Fifa officials are finally feeling the long arm of the law. Next stop, Sepp Blatter.
Sepp Blatter is no-one’s favourite guy, but his Goal project – started in 1999 – has funded 600 projects in 199 member associations. Artificial pitches, association HQ’s, training centres have all been built totally on Fifa’s dime. How many projects have we got funded? Zero.
Sepp Blatter is at it again. The FIFA president said today that penalty shoot-outs are “a tragedy”. He challenged Franz Beckenbauer, honorary president of Bayern Munich, and head of the Football Task Force 2014 – a panel that will recommend rule changes to football – to come up with an alternative.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter said yesterday that racial insults on the soccer field are nothing more than “on-field provocation”. He also suggested that players should accept this as part of the game and simply shake hands at the end of the match. I was actually trying to think of something sarcastic to insert here, but I’m too busy weeping for humanity at the moment.
We all have our lapses of judgment. But some of us make such horrendously poor decisions that one simply has to ask, “What were they on?”. Every week we bring you three contenders in what can only be described as a battle of small wits. So, with great pleasure we present this week’s three La […]
Disappointed with smug Sepp? Never fear, the interweb has a little something to ease that feeling for you on this, the hour that we officially welcome in the Cape Town Friday Rule. Sink Sepp allows players to fire cannons packed with exploding footballs at the Fifa boss while he tries to sail his ship.
Love him or hate him, but mostly hate him, Sepp Blatter was the lucky recipient of the Order of the Companions of OR Tambo, bestowed upon his reverend person by the magnanimous nation of South Africa. Well, alright then. You diplomats brown nose each other in whichever way you prefer. But, oh sweet heavens, how […]
