Sepp Blatter and A Brave New World

2010WorldCupOnline wants to know why two South American countries seem to be playing in North America.

It's a good point. The answer, of course, is for the same reason that Australia has moved to Asia and Israel to Europe. Football, it's the world game, but just not the world as we know it. Maybe it's the world as FIFA president Sepp Blatter wants it to be.

And speaking of the always, er, interesting Mr Blatter. I couldn't help but enjoy his comments that John Terry's affair would have been "applauded" in Latin countries.

This is just the latest in, I don't know, hundreds of stupid things Blatter has said down the years.

My all time favourite is this:

"There are gay footballers, but they don’t declare it because it will not be accepted in these macho organisations. Look at women’s football – homosexuality is more popular there.”

There's loads more but I just bring myself to post them.
