FIFA has fallen on hard times now that Western governments are finally investigating their massive bribery schemes.  Their leadership is still sucking the blood from the sport like the parasites they are, though, and nutrition is scarce these days.

Face it: UEFA isn't going to sacrifice their quadrennial money maker the Euros nor will CONMEBOL do the same with Copa America.

Pretty much every head of every football organisation is a pointing Spiderman but it's still a good notion.

None of the other federation heads force governments to bribe their way to earning a tournament that they have to blow billions on in construction so they can embezzle even more money.

Even an obvious host like Germany had to play bribery politics. Brazil has the definition of a white elephant stadium in Manaus just for the embezzlement and Russia's Sochi one isn't vacant because a billionaire sucking up to Putin moved a team from St. Petersburg there.

So enough people band together for an overall management change and that eventually stops? So either the next guy or group of guys play a fair game?

Established organizations cannot change their basic character.  Look at any large corporation for proof of that.  FIFA will always be corrupt, for however long as they exist.  It's built into their culture.  The IOC is the same way.  You fix it by flushing it down the drain.

And the next org is reliant on the group of people playing a fair game. The money they need to effect this change will come from people who want stakes in it. And who has that kind of money?

Sarcasm should not have to be spelled out as above, but here we are. You don't tend to the symptoms and leave the disease intact. The next global football directive has to do a markedly better job of declaring cash flow and promoting internal accountability.
