Blatter says FIFA won’t survive if he is deposed: “The ballot on 1 June could lead to a seismic shift with irreversible damage,” Blatter said. “It is a question of whether the game’s established world governing body will continue to exist after this date or whether it will disappear into a black hole.”

The Onion? No, somehow not The Onion.

Is that a promise? Even more reason to unseat him. I say "blow up" FIFA and rebuild a new international governing body.

This amazing display of ego makes a great argument for replacing Blatter. Anyone who thinks that an 108-year-old organization will cease to exist without him has lost sight of his place.

That's funny because I am not sure the organisation will survive WITH if Blatter stays on. Fucktard.

The Black Hole of FIFA's Ethics Committee?

That's where everything else seems to disappear, including funds equivalent to the GDP of many FIFA member countries.

Unfortunately the person likely to replace Blatter would not be an improvement.
