Sepp Blatter is an idiot. He can't help but make a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. As president of FIFA, he has presided over an organisation where it has been acceptable to feast off the table of corruption and he has done little to address that particular issue. His latest lament that racist abuse on the football pitch should be settled by a handshake once a game is over, has resulted in calls for him to resign.
His remarks have incensed those in the sport who work hard to eliminate the racial abuse that over the years has demeaned the so-called "beautiful game". But, Blatter is a man without principle and is likely to just shrug off any attempt to unseat him. How can football deal with the problem if the man at the top so readily dismisses such abuse? By his words he has given solace to the bigots in the sport and those on the terraces and the only right thing is for him to go.
FIFA has lost its way and the blame can be laid at the door of Sepp Blatter. His organisation is a den of avarice and dirties the very game it is supposed to promote.
