    Swiss police arrest 6 top FIFA officials on charges of corruption and money laundering, at the behest of the FBI

    Let's face it, for the Swiss to take action against financial irregularities it must be pretty bad

    These fuckers were doing the same damn thing that blew up figure skating after Salt Lake City.

    That sport has never recovered. Football is too popular for that to happen, but FIFA as a body could be in trouble.

    The corruption at the top, with regards to placement of World Cup host countries is minor compared to the commonplace lower-level corruption of organized crime influenced match fixing.

    There is a separate investigation into the selection of host countries (read Qatar and Russia) underway by the Swiss authorities

    When arrested the FIFA officials all threw themselves on the ground and feigned injury.
    Don’t say, “It’s been a good day” till sundown.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good wife” till she’s buried.
    Don’t say, “It’s a good sword” till you’ve tested it.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good girl” till she’s married off.
    Don’t say, “The ice is safe” till you’ve crossed it.
    Don’t say, “The beer is good” till you’ve drunk the last of it.

    From Hávamál, a Norse poem

    If FIFA was a bank, we wouldn't be seeing any of this.

    FBI's investigation extends to Russian and Qatari world cups

    Does the FBI have the jurisdiction?

    Will they also investigate the the USA 94 hosting?

    Or is this a prelude to another Soccer War
