FIFA's crooks, liars, bribe givers, bribe takers ... a nest of stinking rot

Thinking people instinctively knew about this  long before the sheeple got their confirmation from print media.
One does  not need the MSM to tell us what we can surmise on our own if we are watchful and have an ounce of intelligence.

.....Mohamed bin Hammam  accused of payments to help Qatar World Cup bid

Bin Hammam also paid $1.6m into bank accounts controlled by the Trinidadian Jack Warner, also a former vice-president of Fifa, $450,000 of which was before the vote for the World Cup, the Sunday Times said.

Warner was one of the 22 people who in 2010 decided to award Russia the 2018 World Cup and Qatar the 2022 tournament. He stood down in 2011.
