In hilarious news, the chief investigator has appealed against the published summary as being unrepresentative.

I see the lawyer that did the full report is now saying the mini-report that was done by FIFA 'contains numerous materially incomplete and erroneous representations of the fact and conclusions.'

FIFA just get's worse !!

Apparently the main report is notably more critical of Blatter. Can't believe that got cut!

FIFA are beyond a joke. Surely someone needs to step in and sort this out now?

It's already happening, quietly- the FBI have an open case on FIFA through Chuck Blazer. The Americans are well placed to investigate as most FIFA sponsors are American companies but they have relatively little to lose in terms of their actual team - our FA (quite apart from the fact that they're all useless) are hamstrung by the Wembley debt so can't risk being kicked out of international football.

This bit's hilarious:

Quote
The report noted that the Russian bid team made "only a limited amount of documents available for review".
According to the report, the Russian team hired computers that were subsequently destroyed, denying the inquiry access to email accounts.
"We were always confident that there could be nothing which would come out from this investigation," said Alexey Sorokin, the head of Russia's 2018 World Cup organising committee.

Why necessarily does it need to be someone else? The reason FIFA get away with this bollocks is because football fans will put up with anything. Without fans, the World Cup is nothing. Perhaps it's time for a boycott - 100s dying just to simply to build the infrastructure is a good as reason as any.

Not only that but the lawyer was banned from entering Russia. The whole thing is a farce.

Not only that but Garcia's wife is a FBI agent.

They've been getting away with it for so long that they probably think they're untouchable. I also suspect that Blatter couldn't give a shit anyway as he is so fucking old.

Fully agree Flash. It's been going on for 40 years ever since Havelange stole money from the Brazilian Olympic Committee to 'fund' his election to FIFA President.

Perhaps it's time for a boycott - 100s dying just to simply to build the infrastructure is a good as reason as any.

I've given this some thought. I reckon fans could do it by threatening the main FIFA/World Cup sponsors. Either Blatter goes or we boycott all of the sponsors still associating themselves with them. Provided you got enough fans on board it would work. He'd be gone once the sponsors thought there was a genuine threat.

I did think about putting a web page up and some stuff on Facebook, Twitter and all that to try and get the ball rolling. But I can't be arsed. Maybe one for the TEF Pressure Group. Or whatever it was called.
