"Don't speak -- go out and fight, then you will see. People, they say I should not be a candidate or I should not be elected -- they can take the risk to be in the election. Now I say, other people, if they want to take the risk, then take the risk. That is good. And I am happy to fight. But if you take the risk you also have the chance to lose."

-- FIFA president Sepp Blatter, speaking to reporters Saturday at his annual charity event in Switzerland, ready for a fight with anyone who wants to challenge him in next year's election. (AP)

    Time for Michel Platini and UEFA to form an alternate world tournament, invite countries that are tired of being jerked about fat old corrupt incompetent fools. Most of the real soccer countries will leave FIFA immediately, and join the new UWFA. FIFA's funding from advertisers will collapse, it will all be over in a few months.
