    Didn't know where else to put this but Chuck Blazer has passed away tonight, one of the key men involved in the fall of Blatter few years ago

    good, now Jack Warner can die next, then Blatter, then Platini, then Bin..., basically everyone in power in soccer the last 25 years can die

    It has nothing to do with PSG but with Be In Sport.

    Bribes for TV rights. Who would have thought?

    Oh look more crooked folks.

    Let’s not pretend they wouldn’t cook the books if they’d bribe officials.

    That's purely a political move instigated by some gulf countries anti-qatar most probably. I know Saudi Arabia and UAE have been trying to block Bein Sports arabic to be broadcast across arab countries. Bein Sports belongs to aljazeera (qatar) and they basically own the major top 5 leagues rights + CL + UEFA + Euro + Copa america + World Cup. Basically they own everything football related. The Saudis are trying to destroy it.

    Could be Saudis, but let's be real, any TV that has rights for basically everything is automatic bribing in today's world. That's how it works and doesn't make NEK any less guilty. But common with his peers, that's for sure.

    But I do find it funny every media source is presenting it as PSG president is under bribes investigation, while it should be BIS president is under bribes investigation.

    The article says Al-Khelaifi is the chairman of BeIn? So, what's the difference?

    Isn't Al-Khelaifi close to the Emir? I didn't know BeIn was owned by Qatar, but if that's the case, I can't imagine there's much daylight between it, Al-Khelaifi, and the royal family, i.e. the World Cup.

    You can't see the problem? Really?

    If your title is BIS chairman suspected of bribary, it's true and the point of the article.
    If your title is PSG chairman suspected of bribary, EVERY football fan will think of something different before reading the article (which no more than 50% of internet readers do anyway).

    Blazer wasn't clean; and his saved his bacon by blowing the whistle on others above him.

    Septic Bladder is the most corrupt though...

    When this all came out in May 2015 I was celebrating the American feds for busting this open. Get those damn crooks. Well, A lot has gone on since then, and let’s just say corruption lectures aren’t appropriate from this yank these days.

    no, as I've said many, many, times; there's way too much money involved.

    Really though, from the second it was awarded everyone knew it was dirty as hell. There's no chance they'll actually change it though, it's far too close to the actual tournament to realistically change and there's too much advertising money on the line to cancel it.

    Platini or not it's obvious it was bought.
    However I'm still surprised people are acting as if it's something new.
    How do you think France or Germany got theirs?
