Not some bottom of the barrel embarrassment like Bleacher Report or SB Nation. Sports Illustrated.
You’ve worked there for about 15 years. How many times in that span have you raised your hand at a FIFA media event and asked Sepp how much he’s paid or why he fired Jerome Champagne last year, the man described as “the last honest man at FIFA”, or who it was who received the estimated $100 million in bribes from ISL, or which ExCo member got the million dollar bribe which was accidentally deposited in FIFA’s general account or what FIFA’s position is on the fact that Jack Warner has still not paid the T&T players the $20 million he owes them from 2006 and on and on and on.
This stuff is all well known. If you’re so concerned about how FIFA is run then why haven’t you written about it?” —
(Note: opinions on the merits of SB Nation are Bill Archer’s and not mine. I do share his opinion of Bleacher Report and Grant Wahl’s campaign, however.)
Exactly. “Better than Sepp Blatter” is not a high standard to meet.
Reblogging in case @101110 hasn’t seen this.
I mean, I’m a sports fan, and I’d be fooling myself if I pretended that soccer was any different in this regard than the NFL. But it’s worth asking these questions, and considering where your personal line is drawn. The entire post is worth reading.
