What They're Saying: Michael Garcia

"It is the lack of leadership on these issues within FIFA that leads me to conclude that my role in this process is at an end. ... No independent governance committee, investigator, or arbitration panel can change the culture of an organization."

-- From a statement by FIFA's independent ethics investigator Michael Garcia upon resigning in protest over the handling of his report into bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Garcia resigned a day after FIFA's appeals panel rejected his challenge of ethics committee colleague Hans-Joachim Eckert's summary of his report. (BBC)

    Diogenes of ancient Greece would look in vain for an honest man at FIFA headquarters now.
