BBC One - Panorama, Fifa, Sepp Blatter and Me
Andrew Jennings, investigative journalist who was for years on the tail of FIFA; "FIFA covers all the tick boxes to describe a organised crime syndicate." [...] "all empires collapse eventually." // USA Investigators "used the Soccer World Cup to serve their interest and enrich themselves. [...] racketeers. [...] organised crime." // Cronies to care of themselves. That is why they re-elected Blatter even during the US investigation, because they didn't want to give up their Godfather who gives them their job, their lavish life. Exploiting their positions in soccer in their local country to enrich themselves. FIFA was a money making machine. // US officials got only deep into FIFA deals with help of investigative journalist. Same w WADA getting on Russia's case with help of investigative journalists who gave informants new life's in return for insider information and audio tapes. // Mary Papenfuss - American Huckster, Chuck Blazer (< could make a comedic crime drama, w Seth Rogan)

With Turf, Women See Unequal Footing -
The fight here is not really about the downside of artificial turf, of which there are many. The ball rolls faster and straighter and bounces higher on turf than on grass, and sliding is a hazardous proposition, since synthetic turf causes more friction than grass. As the knees, elbows and chins of soccer players everywhere will divulge, the turf can peel back layers of skin, and it may cause concussions because it tends to be less forgiving than grass.

Blatter nennt WM-Vergabe an Katar "einen Fehler" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Mögliche Bestechung durch das Emirat an die stimmberechtigten Mitglieder des Fifa-Exekutivkomitees wollte Blatter nicht kommentieren: "Nein, nein, das habe ich nie gesagt." Unmissverständlich stellte der Schweizer jedoch fest, dass es offenbar "politischen Druck" aus Frankreich und Deutschland gegeben habe. "Man weiß gut, dass große Firmen aus Frankreich und Deutschland in Katar arbeiten, aber sie arbeiten nicht nur für die WM. Die WM ist eine relativ kleine Angelegenheit für Katar." ... books have been written about Olympics and FIFA World Cup backroom dealings and golden handshakes.

Kahn to gay footballers: 'Don't come out' - The Local
The former goalkeeper, who played 86 times for his country, told magazine Gala that he would advise homosexual players to not come out. “It may sound sad, but I wouldn’t advise him [a gay player] to come out.” Kahn added that homosexuality was no longer a “big deal” in society but said it would be “naive” to think that it was the same in professional sport. He said that a player who did come out would have to deal with opposition fans every Saturday in the stadium. “The atmosphere is heated. There are rivalries, which can lead people to do nasty things. On top of that, how will it go down with sponsors? What will it mean for your career? The situation is more difficult than it appears at first glance.” >> SEE Comment "Using homophobia to justify keeping gays quiet and compliant and exactly where he feels they should be IS HOMOPHOBIC. That man is an idiot." >> Angela Merkel, IOC, DFB - all Fahdenscheinig. Specious. meretricious. WORD, Charters. But no Action - which would speak louder.
