Sepp ... Just Leave

FIFA Leader Under Fire

The head of Germany’s football league has called on Sepp Blatter to resign over the FIFA bribery scandal.

Reinhard Rauball told Germany’s Welt Online that Blatter should step down as soon as possible so that FIFA can make a fresh start.

Blatter has acknowledged he knew about payments by marketing agency ISL to former FIFA chief Joao Havelange but insisted they were legal in Switzerland in the 1990s. ...

See the whole story here, from the NYT.

Kicking Back Comments: Take a look at this story from ESPN, and here from the BBC. So it is clear that bribery was rife at FIFA, and Seppy knew about it, and condoned it by doing nothing.

Today he comes forward and states that "... it was legal then ..." which on it's face is nonsense just from a common sense perspective, and that there is now a judgment to the exact contrary that forced a Former FIFA president and Ex-Com member to make repayments and resign their posts (from the IOC and FIFA respectively).

His farcical interview is here, courtesy of the FIFA propaganda machine that continues to lose credibility day by day.

Sepp, just leave and do The Game a favor.
