kidgenius: FTFA:
"The World Cup is FIFA's biggest, if not only, global event. Who are we, the Europeans, to demand that this event has to cater to the needs of 800 million Europeans above all?

Really? Sounds like UEFA may be pulling out of FIFA with a comment like that.

I'm sorry, but UEFA has the best soccer in the world, so maybe you should try to keep them happy, first and foremost. I don't hear MLS biatching when the World Cup disrupts their summer schedule. They realize where they stand in the pecking order and deal with it.

Blatter has been pushing the MLS to change its schedule to work with the FIFA schedule for years.

And now Blatter wants to change the FIFA schedule to accommodate a winter WC because the checks cleared.

Blatter's audacity is impressive.
