Shocker! Sepp Blatter Denies That FIFA Are In Crisis

Nine of FIFA's 24-member executive committee have been accused of corruption in the past seven months. Two members of the executive committee have been suspended from FIFA for two years for accepting bribes and two FIFA vice-presidents who are also presidents of FIFA confederations are provisionally suspended in connection to a bribery case. The FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, had proceedings opened against him by the FIFA ethics committee. The FIFA general secretary wrote to one of the suspended vice-presidents that Qatar "bought the WC [World Cup]." Even so, FIFA are just fine!

In a press conference to address the recent wrongdoings, Blatter flatly denied that FIFA were in crisis. Who needs executives anyways?

"Crisis, what is a crisis? Football is not in a crisis.," Blatter said. "We are not in a crisis, only in some difficulties."

So at what point do difficulties become a crisis for FIFA? When the money starts running out, of course. People can mock FIFA all the way, but they are still rolling in billions of dollars and cashing checks left and right so where is the crisis?
