Sure, Sepp Blatter would do anything to protect the up front cash - but he has another thing coming if he thinks he can get this past the top European leagues. Over at FIFA house, they've fallen too in love with sending World Cups (including the last Under-20 edition) to places with uninspired citizenry to filch through infrastructure spending.
The major federations all look the other way... that is, until you try to affect their games. What a silly man, the nutball who clearly doesn't understand the realistic reach of his overinflated self-interest. Oh well, it will be nice to see him finally lose at some nefarious thing.
