    “Making fun of”… I actually want to burst into tears.

    Blatter is, most probably, one of the most corrupt individuals on the planet, in charge of a rotten organization.

    However, I sadly believe that these revelations are the consequence of us living in the information era – and not something that has anything to do with him specifically.

    International organizations – not only sports oriented ones – are basically sucseptible to corruption. I’m talking about the Olympic Committee, I’m talkig about the UN, I’m talking about any organization that gives “an equal vote” to countries, with no transperancy, with self-regulated and self-juidiciary systems.

    The fact that so many of those organizations are located in Switzerland, is no coincidence. The Swiss have an outstanding reputation in supplying the veil between criminal activity and so called legitimate business activity. Talking about hiding Nazi gold, drug cartel bank accounts, and generally any service that a rich criminal would be in need of (as long as they are “neutral…”).

    I’m sick of this shit.

    Oh, and am I the only one who finds similarities between this latest crap and the Cartoons published in that Danish newspaper?

    @TommieGun,
    I agree with you entirely. There is nothing amusing about FIFA OR Blatter.
    One day someone brave and lucky will be responsible for the ultimate come-uppance of both.
    Evil and corruption cannot continue for ever.
    The sad news at the end of 2013 is that we cannot yet see that “someone”.

    If it wouldn’t be so sad, it would be funny. But as he is untouchable the only thing we can do is making fun of him. And even that seems to be getting more difficult…
    They are more or less acting as new roi du soleil persons…

    Who is actually speculating that Private Eye is considering publishing extracts? I doubt if they would, but if they did (and they don’t give a fuck about who challenges them) and Sep took them on then I fear a Blatterballs appeal would be the sorry outcome.

    Seriousely let’s look into the case. The defending side could take a few stances.

    1) Its satire. Its a joke. Its obvious and no one really regard it as presenting something bad about him so its ok.

    2) The cartoon says something that is real. So if it gives a bad name to the subject, then its only because the subect is doing something bad.

    3) While the cartoon might be somehow damaging to Blatter and the defendant found guilty but since Blatter has no reputation what so ever and his name is very bad, saying bad things about him does not damage anything at all.

    For the good of football we want them to go no. 2 and talk about how badly he doing but the most dramatic would be number 3.

    Actually 2 and 3 are contradicting each other anyway.

    TommieGun,
    Re your last sentence, that’s exactly what popped into my head whilst reading.

    Nicky,

    U r wrong. There is always someone who did absolutely everything righteous about everything unrighteous. They are now called activists, extremists, terrorists, prisoners, enemy of the state, outcasts, weirdos, mentally ill patients, nikola tesla n arsene wenger. A big price to pay to challenge the self claimed lords of the world. I know cause im personally labelled as one in my own birth country. A victim of my own society’s inept.
