Außerdem halte ich die Kritik für übertrieben.

Jens Weinreich #2

Ich auch.

Ralf, müssen wir nochmal dazu sagen, dass es der fachlich versierte MdB Klaus Riegert (CDU/Schwäbischer Turnerbund) ist, der die Kritik an der FIFA (fachlich) für übertrieben hält?

Christoph #3

Nicht FIFA, aber themenverwandt:

Johan Petersen #4

Ist das das erste Mal, dass Blatter himself mit den ISL-Zahlungen in Verbindung gebracht wird?

Jens Weinreich #5

Nein. Wir wissen das schon länger. Für meine TV-Dokumentation „The Untouchable“ beispielsweise haben wir ihn Anfang 2004 im Doppelpack befragt: In Tunis beim CAF-Kongress und kurz darauf bei ihm zu Hause in Zürich. Diese beiden Szenen fehlen seither in kaum einer Blatter-Dokumentation, sind im deutschen und schweizer Fernsehen etliche Male eingebaut worden.

Das interessiert nach vielen Jahren und Dank AJs Hartnäckigkeit nun auch die IOC-Ethikkommission.

Ich sach ma korrekt: das Interesse hält sich in Grenzen.

Johan Petersen #6

@5. Das ändert sich so langsam. Ganz langsam. Nicht in den Medien, deren Entscheidungsträger ihre Jobs und spoils ja dem Sport auch verdanken. Aber die verlieren eben das Momentum und wenn die Dynamik einmal ausgelöst ist, weiß keiner, wo sie endet. Siehe der arabische Frühling. Vielleicht kommen die Schweizer Gerichts-Dokumente ja bald raus.

Jens Weinreich #7

# 6, Johan Petersen: Das denke ich auch.

Christoph #8

Ich persönlich habe den Fifa-Präsidenten immer als einen Menschen erlebt, der sein Wort hält. Also nie so, wie er oftmals in der Öffentlichkeit dargestellt wird. Deshalb baue ich auf seinen Reformwillen.

Es wird natürlich immer Menschen geben, die ihr Bild von Blatter nicht verändern wollen und werden. Aber es gibt glücklicherweise mittlerweile auch einige, die zu denken beginnen, dadurch ihre Feindbilder abbauen und den Blick nach vorne richten.

#4/5 Was ich nicht ganz verstehe: Wessen wird Blatter beschuldigt? Persönlich von der ISL geschmiert worden zu sein? So wie offensichtlich Havelange und Teixeira? Weil Andrew Jennings auch sagt:

Thomas Hildbrand discovered enough evidence to prove that 2 FIFA officials took ISL bribes – and that Blatter had covered it up.

Oder lautet der Vorwurf gegen ihn, dass er mit und namens der FIFA den Korruptionsverdunkelungsvertrag finanziert? Was ja auch reichen sollte, ihn mit Unterstellungen bezüglich seines Reformwillens zu verschonen, so unter normalen Maßstäben ;-D

Jens Weinreich #10

Nö. Nicht persönlich. Jedenfalls nicht, dass ich wüsste.

Eine Frage – die haben wir immer wieder gestellt – war aber, wer das ISL-Schmiergeld (eine winzige Summe) einst vom FIFA-Konto an Havelange weiter geleitet hat.

Dazu formuliert AJ in seinem Vortrag:

Havelange owes a lot to Blatter. On March 3 1997 ISL made a terrible mistake. They sent a bribe for 1.5 million Swiss francs – around US$ 1 million – intended for President Havelange – direct to FIFA’s bank account!
I tell this story in the first chapter of my book and in BBC films. Here’s the evidence, from ISL files: (…)

FIFA general secretary Sepp Blatter ordered the money transferred quickly to a Havelange private account. He denies it ever happened.

Oh. Auch sehr schön.

CBF ACAT LEGAL OPINION OF THE DEPARTMENT THAT GIVES FINAL TROPHY POSSESSION „BRAZIL COPA“ (CUP OF TAPE) TO SAO PAULO
See the opinion of the Legal Department of the entity

SOURCE: AIC / CBF; (CBF.com.br), 14/04/2010, 19:22
SITE: http://www.cbf.com.br/php/noticias.php?e=15&n=11122

The CBF, by advice of its Legal Department, decided that it is up to São Paulo Futebol Clube final possession of the representative of the Brazilian Championship trophy, named in Regulation, Article 4, Brazil Cup (Cup balls).
The opinion of the Legal Department took into account the Regulation of the Brazilian Championship of 1987, which was attended by 32 clubs, divided into two keys, called Module Module Green and Yellow.
Regulation in its Article 6, paragraph 2, provided that the champion and runner-up of each module would compete in a quadrangular, the titles of champion and runner-up Brazil in 1987 and qualifying for the Libertadores Cup 1988.
At the end of the championship, were ranked at Green Module, Flamengo and Internacional, and the Yellow Module, Sport Club Recife and Guarani, which made the CBF, in compliance with Regulation, mark the four games between the clubs.
Flemish and International refused to play the games described, won by forfeit being declared, and finally the Sport has won the Brazilian champion of 1987, a result disputed by Flamengo and Internacional, without these two clubs present reasons consistent.
Thus, in the board meeting held on May 23, 1988, CBF, through its president Octavio Pinto Guimaraes, proclaimed the Sport and the 1987 Brazilian champion Guarani, vice, while appointed as representatives of the two clubs in the Libertadores Cup of America in 1988, what actually happened – Sport and Guarani competed in the Libertadores Cup 1988.
Nevertheless, the controversy persisted, which led to join the Sport in court, seeking judicial appointment declare that Brazilian champion of 1987.
The club Pernambuco was victorious, as the Honorable Superior Court, in judging the Interlocutory Appeal No. 210691 on March 10, 1999, confirmed Judgement of the Federal Court of the 5th Region that had kept the sentence of the first degree who had gain because the Sport.
As shown, with Brazilian champion of 1987, the Sport, not Flemish, it is then up to the final possession Sao Paulo Brazil Cup trophy for being the first club to win the national championship five times alternately (1977, 1986, 1991 , 2006 and 2007).
The decision was announced after the Annual General Meeting of the CBF, held on Wednesday, which unanimously approved the Activity and Financial reports of the entity in 2009.
The president Ricardo Teixeira presented the trophy BRAZIL COPA, a date to be checked, the president of the Paulista Football Federation, Marco Polo Del Nero, who forwarded it to Sao Paulo.

DJU OPINION No. 01 OF 12 APRIL 2010

The President of the CBF, Dr. Ricardo Terra Teixeira requested the examination, in a matter of urgency, the question on the final possession of the Brazil Cup, a trophy representing the national championship, before the notorious controversy raging about the claims and the CR Flamengo São Paulo Futebol Clube.
The examination of the matter must necessarily begin with the analysis of the Regulation, Article 4 which provides as follows:
„Article 4 – The representative of the CHAMPIONSHIP trophy will be called“ CUP BRAZIL „, and its final possession assured the association that there won three consecutive times or five alternatives.“
It is well known and old dispute, but that, in our view, involves very simple solution.
The fact is that the Regulations of the Brazilian Championship of 1987, 32 clubs participated in the 1st division in two keys, called Module Module Green and Yellow. In art. 6, paragraph 2, the regulation provided that the Champion and Vice Champion of each module would compete in a quadrangular, the titles of Champion and Brazilian Vice-Champion 1987, and qualifying for the Libertadores Cup, to be held next year.
It is inevitable therefore that there would be at the end, the same or intersection of the two best placed (and Vice Champion) of each module in a single race.
In the end, found that were classified at YELLOW Module, Sport Club do Recife and Guarani Futebol Clube; By GREEN Module, is rated the Club de Regatas do Flamengo and Internacional.
In compliance with the Rules, the CBF scored four games between these clubs, but the Flemish and the International refused to play the matches resigned, been declared won by forfeit
Finally, the Sport has won the Brazilian Champion of 1987.
This result was widely disputed by CR Flamengo and the International, but no consistent reasons.
Thus, the CBF Board meeting held on May 23, 1988, issued a unanimous resolution is based on the opinion of the Legal Department, to proclaim the Sport Club of Recife as Brazilian Professional Football Champion 1987 and Guarani Futebol Club of Campinas, as Vice-Champion of the same course. At the same time, these two clubs have been officially designated to represent the CBF in the running of the Cup „Libertadores“ of 1988, as actually occurred.
Nevertheless, the controversy persisted, prompting the Sport Club of Recife to join in court, seeking judicial appointment declared champion of the Campeonato Brasileiro 1987.
Once again, the Sport Club do Recife was victorious because the E. Superior Court of Justice, the judge Interlocutory Appeal No 210. 691, on March 10, 1999, confirmed the ruling of the Federal Court 5th Region that will in turn, had maintained a sentence for first degree because he had won the club.
The conclusion inevitably is that the Club de Regatas do Flamengo champion in 1987 was not, contrary to insist that their supporters and followers.
The records that match the race of the various editions of the Campeonato Brasileiro – Serie A, from 1971, reveal the following results:
a) CR Flamengo – was champion in the years 1980,1982,1983,1992 and 2009
b) S. Paul F. Club – became champion championships in 1977,1986,1991,2006, 2007 and 2008.
As shown, the first club to win Serie A p five times, alternately, was the Sao Paulo Football Club, who completed this requirement in 2007 while the CR Flamengo only got the 5th title in 2009.
Therefore, it is up to St. Paul F. C. CR Flamengo and not the permanent possession of the trophy known as „Cup Brazil“ (Cup of balls). Just answer the question that made me the President of the CBF.

Ist doch bloß eine kleine Abwechslung zum ansonsten überstressigen Parlamentarierjob. Der internationale Blick wird außerdem geweitet, um zu sehen, wie gut bei uns doch alles läuft. Dabei auch noch ressortübergreifende Aufgaben zu übernehmen, ist mehr als löblich.
Also ich bin zufrieden, wenn sie mal ein bißchen unterwegs sind. Und Sparen ist sowieso in diesen Zeiten lediglich mittelbare Pflicht des Parlaments.
Zwar OT, passt aber hierzu. Die gestrige Meldung, dass Ex-FM Eichel gegen die Stadt Kassel wegen seiner ausstehenden Pension als OB in Höhe von ca. 6.500 EURO klagt, zeigt die herrschende Genügsamkeit der Polit-Nomenklatura. Eichel erhält bislang nur 8.200 EURO aus seines Jobs als Ex-FM und Bundestagsabgeordneter. Sorry for the missprint, natürlich sind das MONATLICHE Bezüge.
Sparen sollen doch die ungeborenen Deppen. Wir leben heute. ;-)

Dear Roger,

welcome in the country of Rahmstorf and Beckenbauer. ;-)
Interesting to read you. As I can see you are as well interested in sports politics.
Therefore my question to you: What´s worse ? Corruption in sports or in climate politics ? Or is it just the same ? ;-)

Roger Pielke, Jr. #20

Walter- Sports wins, no contest ;-)

Walter #21

Roger- sports wins ever , since climate is more expensive ;-)

Recently I red the speach of Matt Ridley to the RoySocArt. Did you?
