'Dear Mr Blatter...'

2010-06-29 13:32
Dear Mr Blatter,

What a relief it is to use your name. The FIFA website prevents it from being used. I presume because they fear posts which might criticise you as much as they failed to post my comment on it regarding the poor concert which you held up as being so good.

I have decided because of your and FIFA's actions to no longer watch the World Mug. I should have done this when you mocked Ireland for wanting a rematch against France.

Your apology for poor refereeing is only to prevent further fallout for the disastrous press conference of last night. FIFA will protect its income stream, not fair play.

The games between England and Germany and Uruguay and Mexico have not been the only bad decisions in 2010. Khune is just one other as was the yellow card against the Dutch goalkeeper.

Given its arrogance, FIFA leaves me no option but to stop watching the World Mug, which is a pity.

Bafana Bafana did so well and South Africa has done FIFA very proud. It is sad that you and FIFA cannot do yourselves proud.

Goodbye and let the cheating stop.
