Blatter Yaps Again

I really need to expand on the things done by FIFA president Sepp Blatter that demonstrate how he's a walking soap opera. There were the moves to push out folks trying to investigate corruption in FIFA itself. There was the flap over him commenting that women's soccer would be more popular if they wore tighter uniforms. Recently Blatter showed his lack of leadership skills in saying that Columbia's bid to host the 2014 World Cup was a publicity stunt. I can understand the leader of an organization hinting that a bid is unlikely to succeed. But to just come out and say something like this isn't the sort of behavior I'd expect of someone leading an organization like such as FIFA.

while Blatter is out of line, maybe it is his way of saying, not after 1986.
