SEPP BLATTER: Ignorant, incompetent, and a disgrace to football

In a grotesque display of gargantuan imbecility, FIFA's pernicious President Sepp Blatter has vomited out the opprobrious opinion that there is 'no racism in football'.

When asked by CNN World Sport if he thought there was racism on the pitch, the man who runs world football (!) disgorged the following contemptible claptrap:

"I would deny it. There is no racism, there is maybe one of the players towards another, he has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one.

"But also the one who is affected by that, he should say that this is a game. We are in a game, and at the end of the game, we shake hands, and this can happen, because we have worked so hard against racism and discrimination.

"I think the whole world is aware of the efforts we are making against racism and discrimination. And on the field of play sometimes you say something that is not very correct, but then at the end of the game, the game is over and you have the next game where you can behave better."


Only someone possessed of Olympian levels of stupidity could spew out an opinion dripping with so much oafish irony.

At first glance, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was just some poisonous, prehistoric piss-take, but Blatter was deadly serious in his interview, and his views just re-emphasise the irredeemable ignorance of the man.

Blatter is a disgrace to football. He's clearly not fit to run the world game, and he should be forced to resign in shame.

Additionally, the FA - which is dealing with two high-profile race-rows at the moment - needs to release a statement condemning Blatter's comments, and reiterating its commitment to stamping out racism in football.

Don't hold your breath though; the FA is too spineless to take a stand against FIFA, and if I was a conspiracy theorist, I would highlight the odd confluence of events today, specifically Luis Suarez's FA charge being made public only hours after Blatter's comments...

But I'm not a conspiracy theorist, so I won't highlight it.

Blatter OUT!

i realy think all football fans all over the world should cancel sky for the closed season untill the football bodys put a cap on wages  and transfers and start looking at football from the supporters eyes if they dont listen dont sign back up when it hits sky in the pocket everyone will listen,maybe then clubs and supporters will get respect back,sepp blatter says what he said then the fa come down on suarez,we get 48 hours after a big match to play a cup game,i think the time has come for some big changes lets get it back to a working mans sport and back to the days it was about winning and not greed and eagos  lets get are game back ynwa.

did they charge terry coz his comments to anton ferdinand were actually caught on video and were a lot worse than the rumour evra started about suarez which isnt even proven

The English FA will never punish an MU player only Suarez being charged. Remember how Eric Cantona got way with cummunity serveice for the infamous kung fu kick on the fans. Had he been a Liverpool player, he might be banned for life.

yeah but we do get away with some stuff lucas has been impersonating a footballer ( not very well either ) ( in fact rank bad ) for a good few years now , surely bringing the game into disrepute , we,ve not been charged , idea let him room with bellers on the next golf day , just a thought

Madness said...

There I was thinking one article may pass without mentioning Lucas - We used to be called the best supporters in the world.... Not so sure anymore or maybe it is just something like 5% that should eff off and support Man City.
