Guess who's standing for re-election as FIFA President?  ::)

They need to instill a two term maximum system. He's becoming a king, not a president.

They need to nuke the whole organisation, ban everyone involved in any capacity in it from football for life, stop the practice of forcing tax exemptions on host countries, choose hosts of World Cups at random from a pool of suitable candidates (that is, candidates verified by independent feasibility studies), they need to be stripped of all their disciplinary and rule setting functions and so on.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

This too.

Possibly unopposed as Platini has stood down.

This means that Blatter boxed him in and threatened to out his corruption.

"I was not surprised because in private conversations I have had with Michel Platini before, during and after the World Cup he has confirmed he would not be a candidate," said Blatter, who has been Fifa president since 1998.

Agreed.Rip it up and start again.They need a multi-person panel,not one all powerful individual.The president should be no more than a figurehead.
We shall not be moved!

Sometimes, there's no difference.

I would absolutely love that job.

Now I'm not saying my multi-national administrative qualities are up to it but really - could I be any worse than that tit?

I know what my failings are and so I would appoint people to advise and then act on their advice - NOT just listen to the sound of my own voice echoing around inside my empty head.

You might get an expensive watch too.

Don't you think by giving them back people are making it look like they've got guilty consciences over why they were given them?

That's the second reason I would give for not handing them back. The first being that they were a gift. Certain companies/organisations eg NHS will have a policy against the receipt of such items (or money!) but if there isn't one then why should they hand them back?

The trouble is that there is such a policy in FIFA too. They just don't follow their own rules. (In other news, bears have been found to defecate in wooded areas.)

Oh haha. I'm shocked to hear that they have a rule to be honest but like you say - it means nothing to an organisation that does as it pleases regardless.
