In Scotland and in England especially, this has been very big news, on pretty much every news report at some point.
Most of the other forums I go on have a topic about this. But they are Scottish based.
I'd like to guage the wider footballing world's opinion of the organisation that governs the international sport that is football.
A bit of background reading, courtesy of the BBC website:http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/13590264.stmhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/13579931.stmhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/13592684.stm
To be honest it seems a bit of sour grapes from the English FA that has started this off since they lost out on the 2022 World Cup to Quatar. The English themselves have openly admitted to giving gifts of £500 designer handbags to FIFA delegates wives and tickets to the London Olympics.
However, their is truth to their allegations. This has far wider implications for the whole footballing world, and it would be good to see what everyone else thinks, from their national perspective.
Incidently, The Scottish FA had a representative at FIFA who had to resign for saying that the African and Caribbean FA's were corrupt.http://www.fifa.com/aboutfifa/federation/bodies/media/newsid=528007.htmlhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/internationals/6698887.stm
Would people from across the world be in favour of forming a breakaway federation with clear auditing and accountability, or would the status quo suffice?
