Football gang-raped by its officials, but Blatter still won’t go

May 27, 2015

There are a lot of headlines, but is anybody really surprised?

A dozen corrupt schemes have been found by the US justice authorities, including the award of the 2010 World Cup.. But that is only those schemes which have a clear US connection. What about all the others? There is absolutely no probability that the 2018 and 2022 World Cups were not also awarded according to the existing practices. That Qatar have bought their World Cup is an open secret. That money has changed hands to reschedule the championship to the winter is not so surprising either. The Qatar World Cup will have the highest number of deaths per goal than any previous championship. That the sponsorships and TV rights will generate more money than any previous games is also certain. Every sponsor has paid millions in kick-backs or in bribes to get the exposure that they have wanted. There is probably not a single FIFA contract which has not also had a side-stream of monies channelled through the sticky fingers of the administrators.

But Sepp Blatter denies any involvement and the FIFA spokesman has the nerve to say that “this is good for football and for FIFA”. FIFA is quickly distancing itself and blaming the “rogues” who have abused their trust, but there is little credibility left in FIFA. So we shall probably see Blatter re-elected on Friday. Even if Blatter loses the election, the institutionalised practices will continue. Nothing will be done to withdraw the championships in 2018 and 2022 from Russia or from Qatar.

And the existing practices will continue. The gang-rape of football by its administrators will not end anytime soon.

And the abuse is not limited to administrators.

We heard also today that David Lagercrantz, the ghostwriter of the Zlatan Ibrahimovic autobiography, I am Zlatan , admitted that the book was just all a big lie. All the quotations were just made up by the ghost-writer. The whole book was just fiction, a novel – not an autobiography.

When gender equality denies gender difference – limericks (6)

December 28, 2013

1. Sometimes, the “fight” for gender equality gets more than a little ridiculous when it denies gender difference. 

“Gender Equality” is the battle-cry that’s heard,

But just what that means can be a little bit blurred.

Must each and every known profession,

Comprise equally of men and women?

But fathers giving birth is just a little bit absurd.

2. In Sweden, “hen” is proposed by the politically-correct, gender-equalisers as a neutral form between “han” (him) and “hon” (her).

A politically correct young lady from Sweden,

Insisted on being referred to as a “hen”,

She objected strenuously to “she”,

and quite violently to “he”,

Which caused consternation among her young men.

3. Still in Sweden, poor Zlatan Ibrahimovic got into hot water for stating the blindingly obvious that it was more than a little idiotic to compare his game with that of a lady footballer. But – and especially in Sweden – political correctness has become a matter of faith and is often quite unconcerned with reality.

Zlatan the Viking footballer,

Took umbrage when an idiot reporter,

Compared him to a “hen”,

Who kicked a ball now and then,

And Ibrahim-ovic refused to idolise her.

4. In the UK, Thomas the tank engine is under attack from Mary Creagh. She seems rather a silly person – but she was probably only after the publicity.

A cross Labour MP of feminist gender,

More female train drivers would engender,

She demanded the State’s intervention,

To curb the masculinity of Thomas the tank engine,

And required that the “him” be changed into a “her”!

5. At Wimbledon, women now have the same prize money as the men, but they work far fewer hours and play even less. The ladies champion now has an hourly rate about 60% higher than the men’s champion.

Gender equality at Wimbledon has gone a little bit funny,

The men and the women get the same prize money,

But being of the much weaker sex,

The women play just the best of 3 sets,

And the men will be unable to reverse this calumny

6. And all over the world “quotas” for women/minorities/scheduled castes/disabled in various professions are proposed. But fighting discrimination with discrimination only legitimises discrimination.

Oppressing minorities is unacceptable persecution,

But discrimination to fight discrimination is still discrimination.

And if percentage of the population,

Is to be mirrored in every profession,

Competence must be ignored to follow some blind equation.
