Little hope that FIFA scandal will help to address poor standards
THOSE calling for much needed surgery of the cancereating FIFA ( C-M, May 29) are sadly deluded if they think those feeding on the organisation will give up and allow it to recover.
The best that can be expected is a couple of the big fish will be sacrificed, having been given a golden handshake, and it will be back to business as usual. What is happening will be seen as nothing to get excit- ed about and the low standards will just fall further. IF SEPP Blatter does not resign as FIFA president, UEFA should leave FIFA.
The European championship is a far better competition than the World Cup, which cannot survive as a viable competition without it. Getting rid of Blatter is long overdue. I WONDER if G.T.W. Agnew and Frederika E. Steen (Letters, May 28) will pay the prison costs for the ISIS supporters wanting to come home. I dare say not. So why should all other Australians pay? These ISIS supporters went to kill Australians and other coalition forces members. Now they find they were fed garbage so they want out. Too bad. Let them stay where they wanted to be.
