If you are a fan of the world's game then please go to the following site and submit your request to have Blatter removed from his post. His comments today have further shown that he is in no way fit to be president of FIFA. FIFA is split in half at the moment on what to do with this bastard, but if fans continue to voice their opinions, we will be able to keep FIFA under pressure to do something about him.

http://www.fifa.com/contact/form.html

Fans from numerous clubs all over the world (mostly England, due to his consistent bias against English football) are submitting, so please just take a minute and submit a request to cut the legs from under this corrupted scum.

Thank you.

What are so bad about his comments?
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

This is nowhere near the worst thing Blatter has said.


He is a impassionate, money grabbing, corrupt arsehole, and just one of the reasons the game has gone to ****.

You mean biased AGAINST English football.

And that's a perfectly reasonable comment. Allowing players to move as they wish would lessen the influence that money has on the game. I assume you're also one of those football fans who bitches about the way money ruins the game and its increased commercialisation. Kinda just shot yourself in the foot there.

The main issue I see with Blatter is the foreign player bullshit. There should be no quotas. Ever. Unfortunately, Blatter is not alone in believing in that ridiculous "solution". It would be unfair to single him out for criticism for that.

What else has he said that is that bad?

There seems nothing wrong with his point to me. Why should a player stay at a club he doesn't want to be at?

And I don't think the foreign player limit idea will ever happen. It's against EU regulations to stop people working somewhere because of their nationality, and I don't think FIFA will be able to take on the EU.

What Blatter is basically saying is that clubs should be allowed to throw money right, left and centre in order to buy a player, even if they are happy at their club and even if they're in the middle of a contract. It means the big clubs can poach players from smaller clubs at a whim, and offers no sense of security to the smaller clubs and can destabilize them.

Well if it was the other way round and Man U were hassling Madrid for a player, he would not be making these comments, in fact he'd be condemning Man U.

He's so anti-English it's unreal, such an unprofessional man.

Thanks for the spelling correction, but I am not one of those fans who "bitch" about the way money has ruined the game. I never said that so don't imply it. I am "bitching" about the way this man who is supposed to be the president of FIFA, is continuously trying to curve things in favor of his personal pleasure. I don't care about the money in football, in my opinion its made the game more exciting than ever, but to claim that players who are being paid 120,000 pounds a week to play football are "slaves" is ludicrous.

He has been consistently linked to corruption and "under the table" payments.
And why do you think he is making this comment about Ronaldo? Do you think it's because he wants to see Ronaldo happy? No. Its because he wants to see less dominance in English football. Ronaldo is one of the world's most exciting players and Blatter (who has been named an "honorary member" of Real Madrid) would love to bump Ronaldo in the direction of a transfer to Madrid. The president of FIFA should NOT be influencing transfers.

He also helped propose the 6+5 rule when, surprise, English football showed a dominance in European football. From these couple things and all the other unprofessional actions, one would be blind to not see he is not fit for this position.

...I swear that's already how it works?

What Blatter was saying is that a player should not be forced to stay at a club even if he wants to move because the buy-out clause of his contract is too big. E.g. Ronaldo can't leave United because the price United demand is far too high. Also Adebayor at Arsenal.

Only if you deliberately interpret his comments in a way that they are BLATANTLY not supposed to be interpreted.

Yeah, I said I hated that balls. It's under the pretence of improving our national side too. But again, he's not alone in calling for that, it's got massive support all over the media and football organisations.

Fair points.

However, in this situation I think he has stumbled on to a sensible point here. Contracts do force players to work for a team in a way that no other employees ever have to deal with.

I can see your point, but I just think that it leads to an even bigger monopoly on the best players, the trophies, the champion ship league spots etc. not that it can get much worse.

i don't like blatter, what he said about ronaldo being a slave is an insult to slaves.

I dunno, I'm not exactly sure what the alternative could or should be. I don't really like this system but in absence of any other option...

Quote by jmilli2
My employer didn't pay my last employer £12,000,000 for my services though. As long as there are transfer fees for players then the club have every right to make them stick to their contract. If a player doesn't want to have to stay at the same club they can sign rolling monthly contracts or one year contracts or whatever. As a footballer you know that if you sign a 4 year contract at a club this means unless they sell or release you that you can not play for another football club in this time. Likening it to slavery is preposterous.


I imagine he was likening it to Roman slavery rather than 18th century American slavery. I think Roman slaves could buy out of their contracts.

And clubs don't want to sign a bunch of one year contracts with players. They want commitment. If someone tried that, they'd just find a different player.

Wah wah. He's got a point this time. Ronaldo doesn't want to be at Manure (naturally), if he does not feel comfortable at the club it's bad for both player and the team - it's as simple as that. I'm guessing a lot of you are just Man U fans clinching on to the legs on Ronaldo as he strides to Spain.
