With the FBI involved, and Interpol, the plot thickens in respect to FIFA's corruption over the years. The plural of years is evident to most viewers, however, the investigations are giving "the people" something concrete to attach their longstanding suspicions to. In 1998, for the World Cup in France, and in particular the bid given to Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022 are under the spotlight, yet high ranking government officials from Zambia, and other places, insist doing business with Sepp Blatter was respectable. Much more to come from these rising events, that keep escalating into something FIFA always thought they'd have a strong handle on. For now, they're watching the mess unfold, just as the rest of the world, while rumors are circulating around of possible new Presidents, including Micheal Platini - the longtime French captain, who led France to the European championship in 1984.
