It was nice to hear that the higher ups of FIFA go to Bleachers' Brew. I'm sorry you won't find everything to your liking here, Mr. Blatter. Thanks Cathy for the heads up on this.
I was surprised to find three uniformed policemen inside the premises of the PFF Congress at the Philsports Complex yesterday (November 27). Some football officials didn't like it because it seemed like the former president Mari Martinez was using scare tactics. I interviewed the cops on what they thought about the whole proceedings yesterday. I cannot post their answers but you can ask me when we meet up. But honestly, I didn't see the need for them. It's not it was a riot mob in there. Besides, I have an extremely low opinion on cops. Hate them. Never liked them. Never will.
What do I think of what happened yesterday?
I think the case will be elevated to the Asian Football Confederation where Mr. Martinez will try to get the backing of some of his friends. The facts of the case have already been forwarded to FIFA even before the Congress began. One local football official had a conversation with Mr. Sepp Blatter and from all indications, they are aware of what is going on.
Mr. Martinez will take the matter to court where the PFF will be in for a fight but the proof and the unanimous decision to take out the former will bode well for them.
What do I think of the other Football Associations? I think the PFF seriously needs to review what the others are doing. I wonder if some of them are actually doing something.
Be back tonight (930pm) for the stories on what happened yesterday and my thoughts on everything.
