It has been a bad year for FIFA as scandals have brought the Football body into disrepute.More officials are dragged in the controversy and swords are drawn out as everyone tries to save themselves.
As one executive attacks another the dysfunctional organisation looks as though it is falling apart at last. The Conclaf fall out with Chuck Blazer, general secretary and number two, suddenly blowing the whistle on Jack Warner, his President and till then cherished ally, contriving to force him out of office on the back of Bin Hammam's thwarted attempt to bribe Caribbean leaders in his quest for the FIFA presidency.
The surprising resignation of Chuck Blazer himself following both Blazer and the present FIFA chief executive, Jerome Valcker scathingly accused as liars by a woman judge in a New York court, when trying to squeeze Mastercard out of its long term World Cup finals deal with FIFA in favour of Visa.
The most scatting was the release of Swiss court documents by embattled FIFA president Sepp Blatter at long revealing the huge bribes paid by the now defunct ISL organisation to FIFA officials in return for marketing rights.
THe list grows but this murky dealins will only serve to cause sponsors and fans alike to jump ship unless FIFA acts decisively to improve people's perceptions of the organisation.
