    When you realize that they're pretty much asking the US government to do it for them on the US' dime then those stones get a bit bigger.

    What's amazing is that I'm sure plenty of people believe the 98 and 02 (and now 06) WC were bought, but SURELY, that started in 98, not 94 :sarcasm:

    Yep.
    Just like the centuary Olympic Games being played in Atlanta instead of Athens.
    Totally not a Coca-Cola bribe, but totally honest win.

    Just a heads up :
    The Panama Papers scandal (money put in Panama for tax evasion) has not only touched high profile political leaders, celebrities and bankers, but also football players and officials.
    Messi is in it, Platini as well and yes, the new FIFA president Infantino.


    :facepalm:

    Damiani (who was co-signer of that tax evasion with Infantino) has resigned from FIFA.

    Infantino was Blatter's right hand man for years. This should come as no surprise.

    Davor Suker, who bailed out a football official in Croatia charged with tax evasion money laundering, is apparently a candidate for the next UEFA president :laugh::shakehead Though the favorite is another crook, Villar from Spain

    Now it appears Infantino could face a suspension or even ban for trying to delete audio recordings from the recent FIFA meetings in Mexico City. While he didn't actually delete these recordings the fact he attempted to could cause punishment

    And to show USSF isn't so innocent (only the naïve think this), apparently Gulati was instrumental in Scala's resignation

    You don't work with FIFA without getting into the dirt.
