Corruption in FIFA?

Postby lau03143 » Mon May 30, 2011 12:47 pm

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.stm

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/13579931.stm

http://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.html

http://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?

Thoughts!

The choice of Russia and especially Qatar as world cup venues led me to believe that there is some form of corruption.

I think if it was UEFA under investigation people would be far more concerned, but since it's FIFA, they are resigned to the fact that it happens.


Worth noting that these are all allegations and not been confirmed yet!

I believe UEFA is corrupt too, mostly with fixing "draws"

Yes, the old "Hot ball, Cold ball" trick!

But seriously, that is whatthe seeding system is in place for, to try to ensure the larger teams get to the latter stages fo the tournaments. But that is the same in all footballing organisations.

I agree. UEFA is far more important for people who support European clubs and countries than FIFA. To some degree, there is probably corruption in both cases. I just hope it's not too much.

I guess leaving the decision of who is to host earth's biggest event to 22 guys tells you a little bit about their openness and their desire to let go of their power.

You can't NOT think of corruption when the World Cups are held in Russia and Qatar. There is no conceivable reason to hold it in the latter, and barely enough justification to hold it in the former.

Welcome to FIFA World Congress 61

Postby tflags » Wed Jun 01, 2011 12:03 pm

Welcome dear delegates to FIFA World Congress Number 61.

Please beware of those flying TIE Fighters, Corruption A-Wings, Bribery B-Bombers, Fixed-Match Squadrons and CUP-shaped DON-A-TOORs. This last ones are 'WORLD class.'

Please note that for this year's election we have 3 candidates. Please choose your selection carefully as... No, wait, we have only TWO candidates. One has been suspended pending corruption charges. Wait, a second candidate has also been suspended.
Kindly wait as we have to figure out what to make of this whistle blower's news that... Oh, what? The whistle blower has also been suspended?
No need to panic. Chaos, What Chaos?? We only have basically everyone against everyone and all seem to be accused of corruption...
Never mind, we still have a democratic election. May the majority win, please. Please choose your ONLY AVAILABLE CANDIDATE carefully. We don't want to make the wrong decision here...

after all these things, blatter is still president, a man who still lives in the past and has no modern thinking at all. Blatter and his gangs are money hungry idiots with no good interest in football.

I believe for the good of football we need Bin Hammam, or someone else who is not Blatter or one of his friends.

Platini is not so bad. We can live with him...

Well Bosnia got screwed vs Portugal, and Ireland vs France. The "big" countries are the bigger TV draw I guess.
