Snapshot: FIFA Democracy In A Nutshell

By Chris Wright

The heartiest of hearty congrats go out to Sepp Blatter who has just been successfully re-elected as FIFA president after running completely unopposed and harvesting 186 of the 203 available votes…

Once again, absolutely no punchline is necessary.

*Sigh*

    That’s 92% of the vote. Impressive.

    SEPP BLATTER IS IN DENIAL. HE IS LIKE THE CROOKED OLD MAN WHO LIVED IN A CROOKED OLD HOUSE(FIFA). IT’S ABOUT TIME THAT THE EUROPEAN & SOUTH AMERICAN FEDERATIONS FORM A NEW “FIFA” AND JUNK THIS DECREPIT OLD MAN WITH HIS DECREPIT LITTLE ASSOCIATIONS WHO MIS-USE SPONSORS FUNDS TO LINE THEIR OWN POCKETS. IF WE CAN’T EVEN GET A SIMPLE MEASURE LIKE GOAL LINE TECHNOLOGY ADOPTED WHAT KIND OF REFORMS CAN WE EXPECT FROM THIS BUNCH OF GANGSTERS?

    @Falconed
    European and South American federations only? Based on your “caps-lock writing”, I assume that you either lack knowledge in geography or want to see a “Euro/South American Cup” which I would find rather sad.

    Reminds me of the days of living in the Polish People’s Republic. There also was only ever one choice. Vote for the Polish United Workers Party. Of course, Fifa doesn’t have the SB (Secret Police) to back itself up, so not voting for the ‘right’ choice isn’t likely to land you in jail.

    Still, at least 17 people are willing to spoil their ballots/abstain, so that’s something!

    Blatter is a cunt!

    if it was only bin hammams name on the card blatter would still win the poll!

    Can’t really moan if no one stands against him. Hammam wasn’t really a choice. FA should have stuck Trevor Brooking up, at least it is doing something rather than just whining.
