FIFA hits Blatter, Platini with 8 year bans

The investigation into both men, who both denied any wrongdoing, was unable to prove "to the extent required" that either was guilty of bribery and corruption under the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE).

Is the inability to prove corruption just proof of lingering corruption in the organization? I heard an NPR report about the candidates to replace Blatter, and it sounds like they are all just long-time insiders. Just more of the same.

rife with corruption for a long time. The question in my mind is what rights did we have to look into it and make arrests. I would think that they must have done something with US folks for there to have been a US issue. Without knowing all the facts, I have a hard time getting amped up over FIFA and I love soccer.

In the end, if the corruption is where things will be done and not on the field, I guess that is sort of like our NCAA. One might say that our NCAA is worse in that their biased and often random actions actually do effect the play on the field/court.
