Defiant Blatter: 'I cannot monitor everyone'
by Paul Kennedy on Thursday, May 28, 2015 1:02 PM EDT
Photo Sepp Blatter spoke on Thursday for the first time since the raids of Wednesday morning by Swiss police in coordination with the FBI.

The remarkable Clive Toye -- who brought showmanship, excitement and color to American soccer
The debt owed by American soccer to Clive Toye is a vast one. It is not too much of an exaggeration to say, flatly, that without Toye's blind faith in the sport in the 1970s, pro soccer in the USA would have withered and died.

"It's another clear attempt by the USA to spread its jurisdiction to other states. And I have no doubt -- it's a clear attempt not to allow Mr. [Sepp]  Blatter to be re-elected as president of FIFA, which is a great violation of the operating principles of international organisations. The U.S. prosecutor, as our media report, has already said that those FIFA officials have committed a crime. As if the prosecutor didn't know about the principle of the presumption of innocence."

-- Russia president Vladimir Putin on the Federal indictment charging 14 FIFA officials and sports executives with kickback schemes totaling more than $150 million. (Guardian)
