Sepp Blatter apologizes to the Socceroos

Sepp%20Blatter_edited.jpg
Sepp Blatter tried to soothe the Socceroos by saying that they deserved to go to the quarterfinals instead of Italy. A bone headed play by Lucas O’Neill, an opportunistic dive by Fabio Grosso, and a miserable piece of refereeing by Luis Medina Cantalajo, all in the last minute of regulation time kept the Socceroos out of a fairy tale entry into the quarterfinals of the 2006 World Cup.
However with Blatter everything is too little, too late. Shouldn’nt we call him Sepp Blather, already?

  1. I take issue with the “too little, too late”, at this rate, the World Cup won’t last, or at least have any quality, in 12 years. People like Beckenbauer and Blatter speaking out represents a wider discontent.
    What do you want the man to do? Glad, no one responds ever to these posts, because quite honestly, the author of the original post’s reason is absolutely ludicrous.

    Possibly introduce TV replay. Now that would not be too hard, would it? But it requires the will of people like Blatter, who unfortunately look at being FIFA chief as a huge patronage job, rather than being an innovator. Anyway he succeeded Joao Havelange, who treated FIFA as his personal fiefdom. So he learned from the master.
