Sepp Blatter was interviewed on BBC's new sports programme "Inside Sports' and it turned out to be a fluffball. Blatter was not asked one question about the illicit payments or the ISL scandal that should soon see Blatter making court appearances in Switzerland. Inside Sports could have turned on the screws as Blatter started listing the flaws in soccer, diving, racism, fan violence, cheating, doping, all issues that Blatter could have done more to tackle but the Beeb let him off. Blatter is soccer's Alberto Gonzalez, incompetent, corrupt, and a survivor because of the patronage he enjoys from the establishment.
Meanwhile, Blatter continues to undermine South Africa's preparations by mentioning contingency plans to move the World Cup to Australia, England or Mexico should SA fail yet at the same time expressing full confidence in SA's ability to host the 2010 World Cup. Talk about bait and switch.
Blatter's statements already has Australia salivating at the prospect of getting the World Cup.
