  1. Probably won't be hard to fill up a whole thread on general corruption within FIFA. In today's news, our buddy Jack continues to reap it in: World Cup bid team compensated boss's wife with pearl pendant Excerpt: "AUSTRALIA'S World Cup bid team gave the wife of FIFA vice-president Jack Warner a pearl necklace last year after a complaint from Mr Warner that she had missed out on pearl jewellery given 14 months before to the wives of other FIFA officials. The gift was given after the formal World Cup bidding period had begun and when the Football Federation of Australia was seeking support for its bid from Mr Warner, who is on the FIFA executive committee that will decide later this year on who will host the 2018 and 2022 soccer World Cup. The FFA said the gift - with an estimated value of $2000 - complied with FIFA rules, which specify that gifts must be incidental or symbolic in value. The Age yesterday revealed how the FFA paid tens of thousands of dollars for the Trinidad and Tobago under-20 soccer team to travel to Cyprus last year in a gesture warmly received by Mr Warner."
  2. The Confederations cup this year will be a prelude to Russia and their facilities for the 2018 World Cup. Here is an interesting review of the South America's representative and its coaches' styles. http://www.espnfc.com/team/brazil/205/blog/post/3039500/china-cup-title-hints-at-promising-future-and-sustained-success-for-chile
  3. The Ref

    VAR

    I regard the new VAR to make referees reluctant to pull their pants up and make calls and also foster them to relax and be distracted from their duty to keep up with the play. Leave the game as it is with all its faults and virtues. We still enjoy it and allow us to discuss some calls.
  4. Is it incredible that of the 21 players selected for the squad only 1 does not play for a U.S. University.
  5. The Ref

    CONIFA

    Why is Quebec a member of Conifa. Is that ok with the CSA?

  8. Ding-dong! The Witch is Dead! FIFA Vice-President Jack A. Warner resigns (FIFA.com) Monday 20 June 2011 Jack A. Warner has informed FIFA about his resignation from his posts in international football. FIFA regrets the turn of events that have led to Mr Warner’s decision. His resignation has been accepted by world football’s governing body, and his contribution to international football and to Caribbean football in particular and the CONCACAF confederation are appreciated and acknowledged. Mr Warner is leaving FIFA by his own volition after nearly 30 years of service, having chosen to focus on his important work on behalf of the people and government of Trinidad and Tobago as a Cabinet Minister and as the Chairman of the United National Congress, the major party in his country’s coalition government. The FIFA Executive Committee, the FIFA President and the FIFA management thank Mr Warner for his services to Caribbean, CONCACAF and international football over his many years devoted to football at both regional and international level, and wish him well for the future. As a consequence of Mr Warner’s self-determined resignation, all Ethics Committee procedures against him have been closed and the presumption of innocence is maintained. http://www.fifa.com/aboutfifa/organisation/media/newsid=1455834/index.html
  9. Date is January 10, 2011. Received email from FIFA confirming on-line live broadcast. "We can confirm that the Press conferences and the show will be live streamed on FIFA.com. The Press Conferences from 14.00 and the show from 19.00." Times presumed are Zurich times.
  10. Good article about the upcoming FIFA presidency battle, and Jacko's possible influence on it: http://www.worldfootballinsider.com/Story.aspx?id=34218 Warner the Kingmaker in FIFA Presidency Battle (WFI) Controversial CONCACAF president Jack Warner has emerged as the key powerbroker in the battle to win the FIFA presidency. Warner controls 35 of the 208 federations who will decide the next FIFA president at its congress in Zurich in June, and sources with knowledge of FIFA politics have indicated that he is the key figure in the electoral race. CONCACAF have indicated this week that they will likely vote as a bloc. A candidate needs 105 federation votes in order to win the FIFA presidency. AFC president Mohamed Bin Hammam and journalist Grant Wahl have emerged as challengers to Blatter, although Wahl is still to get the backing of a federation. This morning in Kuala Lumpur Bin Hammam laid out his electoral manifesto. While there were some flourishes to appease those who think too much power rests in the hands of the executive committee and for the smaller, impoverished federations that make up Blatter’s power base, its most striking aspects were the powers he pledges to give confederations. “I will decentralise the activities of the FIFA administration. The legal matters, like the statutes and international transfers, and statutory issues can be handled directly by the confederations under the supervision of their executive bodies,” said Bin Hammam. He added: “I will establish an Executive Office. The President of FIFA will be the Chairman and the six presidents of the six confederations will be the members of this office. This office will be responsible to execute the decision of the Board [an expanded Exco]. Collectively and jointly, the President of FIFA and the Presidents of the confederations will be responsible for executing the decisions of the FIFA Board.” In a nutshell, Bin Hammam proposes giving huge amounts of FIFA power to confederation heads. The plan, according to one FIFA insider, is “to appeal to the vanity of confederation heads, such as Warner.” In challenging Blatter, Bin Hammam’s great problem is that he lacks a strong powerbase. In January in Doha, I watched as he supported one of world football’s strongmen – Chung Mung-joon – in his own confederation’s congress. Dr Chung was bidding for re-election as a FIFA vice president, but despite Bin Hammam’s backing lost to Jordan’s Prince Ali. Ali’s supporters then bragged about how they would also support Blatter in June’s presidential election. The next day, Sepp Blatter told myself and fellow reporters at a briefing that we should “draw our own conclusions” about a man who could not even control his own confederation. The inference was that he would stand no chance when taking on the rest of the world if he couldn’t win in Asia. Last week, over tea in Ramallah’s Movenpick Hotel, Bin Hammam told me that he had support across all confederations. When I reminded him about Doha, he shrugged his shoulders and said that he believed he would have enough votes to win against Blatter. The maths tell us that CONCACAF would be the essential factor in any such victory. Bin Hammam will carry around 30 votes from the AFC and may grab another 10 or 15 from each of Blatter’s strongholds in Africa and Europe. That leaves CONMEBOL and Oceania, which are both small confederations that he may only dent. His best hope then is to seize CONCACAF’s bloc of 35 votes, which would put him within touching distance of Blatter. This may give him momentum – which may ultimately prove irresistible when voting comes about – to carry floating voters in Europe and Africa too. “He’s not really offering anything new to the federations, but there is a lot there that will please the confederations,” said one source. “FIFA has already been successful in decentralizing some of its operations and this progresses that process. “It all depends on whether someone like Jack Warner will find it enticing.” A telling omission from today’s manifesto was the absence of a maximum presidential term, which Bin Hammam has instituted at the AFC and previously spoken of the need for with FIFA. This may temper backing from Europe, where UEFA president Michel Platini is seen as Blatter’s successor-elect in four years time. Only three men have led FIFA in the last half-century and having seen FIFA’s power slip from its orbit to Africa, CONCACAF and Asia in the last two decades, Europe won’t want to see further erosion in power if a non-European is in charge for the long-haul. Twelve weeks still stand before the FIFA presidential election and a fortnight before nominations close. Much rests in the balance and it would be foolish to write anything or anyone off. The odds of British bookmaker William Hill – 9/4 Bin Hammam; 1/3 Blatter – will definitely shift plenty of times before then. The only other certainty is about the conduct of the bid race. Blatter has already shown his preparedness to get his hands dirty, with a visit to the internationally reviled military dictatorship in Burma this week. Some of the more disreputable characters who circulate around FIFA’s fringes have also started to crawl out from under their stones. Things will get dirtier.
