Bob Ley Rips Up FIFA Agenda – Video

Filed under: ESPN, FIFA, Soccer News, TV, Videos

Bob Ley seems like he is a genuine fan of the sport and does a good job of presenting it to the American audience. And he always seems to be a pretty level dude. But this whole FIFA thing clearly has him feeling like the rest of us. And when FIFA didn’t abide by the agenda that they had set out for today, well I think he had enough.

And I say good for him. Showing some passion and voicing frustration are the very least of what many of us are doing right now with anything and everything FIFA. I get it Bob. And I’m glad you ripped up their agenda. It might not change anything, Sepp Blatter might not take notice, but I certainly get where you are coming from. There should probably be much more shredding and ripping of current FIFA agends. That might be a pretty good place to start actually…

While we are disappointed in the result of the election, we will continue to push for meaningful change within FIFA. Our goal is for governance of FIFA that is responsible, accountable, transparent and focused solely on the best interests of the game.

This is what FIFA needs and deserves, and what the people who love our game around the world demand. We congratulate President Blatter and it is our hope he will make reform his number one priority to ensure the integrity of the sport across the world.

ESPN the Magazine has dropped the cover to their “World Football Issue”.

Pretty good timing on all it as well obviously … it features stories on Alex Morgan and Hope Solo, given that the Women’s World Cup is upon us in just a few days.

I wonder if they have anything on the current FIFA situation… I imagine the editor was like, “faaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!!!!” earier this week when all of those went to print.

There are a lot of people in the soccer world who operate behind the scenes in order for the game to flourish. You might not know all of their names or see them in the limelight, but without them, things aren’t getting done. The sport is not growing. The final product that we see on the field and in stadiums each week throughout the season just wouldn’t be the same without these individuals. We want to showcase these folks a little bit more. Introduce them and their good work to soccer fans across the country. They make the sport better and we feel it’s only right to give them a little bit of the shine that they deserve.

In this excerpt, he talks about the growth of soccer in the Salt Lake community and how they have uniquely embraced the game to become some of the most knowledgable supporters in the US.

CONCACAF Announces Changes :: Justino Compean & Sunil Gulati On Special Committee

Filed under: Soccer News

~~  A smart move on every single level…. But this is far from over.

From the confederation to the television contracts to player agents in the regions.  This #FIFAarrests situation has longer tentacles than anyone truly understands.

via CONCACAF

The Confederation of North, Central America and the Caribbean Football Association (CONCACAF) announced today that in accordance with the Confederation’s Statutes, the Executive Committee provisionally dismissed Jeffrey Webb and Eduardo Li, and — also in accordance with its Statutes — named Senior Vice President Alfredo Hawit as CONCACAF President.

The Executive Committee appointed Victor Montagliani, the President of the Canadian Soccer Association, Justino Compean, the President of the Mexican Soccer Federation and Sunil Gulati, the President of U.S. Soccer Federation to a Special Committee charged with the duties of evaluating and sustaining all of the business operations of the Confederation in the wake of the indictments brought against certain members of FIFA and CONCACAF.

The Executive Committee also placed General Secretary Enrique Sanz on a leave of absence to begin immediately. In addition, the confederation’s Deputy General Secretary, Ted Howard has been appointed by the Executive Committee as acting General Secretary. Howard takes over the administrative functions of the day to day business of the Confederation in absence of Enrique Sanz.

“While we are profoundly disappointed by the allegations made by authorities that again, CONCACAF has been the victim of fraud, we remain committed to CONCACAF’s goal to develop, promote and manage the game of soccer,” said CONCACAF President Alfredo Hawit. “We have now taken the appropriate steps to maintain our operations and continue to deliver on our commitments to all of our constituents, including our fans, members, as well as commercial and broadcast partners. We also continue to cooperate with the ongoing investigation by governmental authorities, which have not placed any restrictions on our ongoing activities.”
