He was the guy in charge, so of course they're going to concentrate on him especially considering how senior these officials were. He was either just as corrupt as the other officials to allow it to take place or completely incompetent to not notice it was happening.

That makes about as much sense as blaming POTUS when a democratic senator in the US takes bribes or kills his wife.

I mean, do you seriously think that when people take bribes, they proudly tell it around?

"Hey Sepp, old sucker! I just accepted millions of dollars in bribes for casting my vote to country XY!"

"Hey Jack! Haha, great work, high five!"


Sorry, I consider that ridiculous. At FIFA votings, about 200 people are entitled to vote. Sepp Blatter has no chance at surveiling 200 people 24/7, he's not the fucking NSA.

Jack Warner is one of 14 people charged by US prosecutors over alleged corruption at Fifa.

The US Justice department alleges the 14 accepted bribes and kickbacks estimated at more than $150m (£97m) over a 24-year period.

Mr Warner denies all charges of corruption.

He resigned from Fifa's executive committee and all other football commitments in 2011 amid allegations he had bribed his Caribbean associates.

He later stepped down as Trinidad and Tobago's security minister amid a fraud inquiry.

A key figure in the deepening scandal, in a recent statement he said he had given lawyers documents outlining the links between Fifa, its funding, himself and the 2010 election in Trinidad and Tobago. He said the transactions also included Mr Blatter.
