it kind of bothers me that the most powerful man in the world of football can come out and make statements like this.

One of the things I have learned in New York is that people respect each other irrespectful of where they come from and things like that. Yes, there are some idiots, but I am a limey in the heart of Harlem and they largely have showed me much more respect than I would get if I went to Manchester.

Latino's love their football and their families too. Statements like this is just nonsense. Imagine the CEO of GE said something similar in New York? I still can't believe it. It irks me to no end. Why is that fat little Swiss blob above all laws and respect for gender and nations?

Blatter has a big mouth and often makes cringe-worthy remarks.

you must admit, though, that he's very easy to understand -- no small trick when you constantly talk out your ass.

Must admit, Mr. Bladder is not on my radar but that article makes me wonder...

How does somebody that far up, get away with saying something like that?

Because he's that far up.
 The rules are different at the top.

Doesn't he have a board that can sack him for making such remarks? Wholly crap that is so out of line.

You're all too young to remember Avery Brundage -- very much like Blatter in that he believed he WAS the Olympics and pretty much said and did what he wanted as the head of the IOC for about 104 years. Every time Blatter bleats he reminds me of Brundage.
