I mean that. Seriously, you don't have to read this, you know. There are plenty of better things to do with your time. Time is valuable. You'll thank me in the long run (actually you won't, will you, you ungrateful bastard? You won't even give it a second thought and nor should you).
It was originally quite vague, but it's now known by a few people (luckily, people that I like).
Any views expressed of course, are my own.
Of course, if you do stumble upon this and don't know me, feel free to get in touch, it'll be interesting.

As far as I know, everybody who has an interest in football (except Vladimir Putin) is aware that FIFA has long been a corrupt organisation. It's just assumed knowledge, isn't it? The only annoying thing is that Sepp Blatter was not one of those arrested, when it's clear that he's the worst of the lot of them.
Anyway, that's not the funny thing. The funny thing is that Blatter still intends to go ahead with the FIFA presidency vote tomorrow. OK, these "votes" are farcical anyway because Blatter's bribed everyone to vote for him ahead of time and knows he's going to win, but this one? Who's going to be there to vote? UEFA are planning on boycotting, which can only further disvalue it.
Mind you, in FIFA-world, things happen differently. I reckon the vote will go ahead, Blatter will (of course) be elected for a fifth term and he'll try to claim the credit for cleaning up FIFA.
Or, he'll do that util someone rats him out - and that will happen - and the whole fucking corrupt house of cards comes tumbling down. He'll never see prison of course; he's 80-odd already and appeals, etc., will surely drag out until he drops dead. And I suspect many of the billions he's taken from the game over the years are safely stashed away somewhere untraceable. But at least he'll be gone.
I mean, Qatar, for fuck's sake.
