Lisle Austin out, Alfredo Hawit in as interim president

[CONCACAF] In less than a week, Concacaf has had three presidents. In the latest twist to the confederation's ongoing power struggle, its executive committee has gotten the upper hand, provisionally suspending interim president Lisle Austin for undisclosed violations of Concacaf statutes. Honduran Alfredo Hawit assumes the role of acting president.

The suspension follows Austin's effort to fire general secretary Chuc k Blazer, the whistle-blower whose report to FIFA led to the suspension of longtime Concacaf president Jack Warner.

    The best solution to end all this madness is to draft BOTH Hank Steinbrecher and Allan Rothenberg to oversee the COMPLETE reorganization and clean up of CONCAF. But for sure, DO NOT include Charles Blazer, or Gulati into the mix. Oh, but wait, if these two WC USA 94 and battled tested guys come in, then there will cries of conspiracy and somewhat luke warm "underhanded" shennanigans by member federations against a "Yankee-Gringo" take over of the region! Ye gads, toss this idea in the trash bin!! So it is stuck with Aldrefo Hawit for the next 72 hours before they find something against him! YIKES, can one and everyone say: "For the Good of the Game?"
