So everyone knows how fifa is corrupt and Robb small soccer teams in fifa sense when they play against the big teams in big tournaments.. Ala Honduras vs Brazil Olympics, Australia vs Italy wc 2006.. Spain vs Paraguay 2010 wc.. germany vs usa 2002 wc.. ect so many teams... well America/ western hemisphere has ideas and strong possibilities of creating their own fifa.. and having their fifa headquarters here in the USA... as early as 2016, which was discussed by 1330am by many top America former players.. including maradona, pele, McBride, batistuta, dida, lalas, Mexican former stars, central American stars ect so many players.. it will be amazing if it does happen..

What y'all think ???

America has beaten Europe many times before... so their better in my opinion.. reason why Europe combine has more world cups is because FIFA GIVES THEM MORE TEAMS IN A WORLD CUP THAN COmBEBOL, CONCACAF... THEREFORE INCREASING THEIR CHANCES... i bet if it was the opposite concacaf would have at least 2 world cups... and combebol like 3 more

I think the corruption in Soccer is one of the reasons that many from the USA reject it as a sport. My biggest 3 turn offs are 1. Corruption, 2. Time wasting, and 3. Diving. I would vote for a new governing body if they seriously addressed these issues.

I would support a new governing body, but it's not going to happen in the near future. FIFA gets away with the corruption because they are so powerful and countries like the US and other non traditional soccer powers rely on FIFA for so much. Why do you think the US Federation voted for Blatter in the last election? It wasn't cause they supported the guy, it's cause they wanted to get on his good side for a future World Cup bid, etc.
FIFA has way too much power, and it's going to take a huge risk to do anything about it.

Yes, of course, CONCACAF and CONMEBOL splitting off from FIFA and forming their own governing organization will save us from all the corruption and unfair practices. At least that's what those fine upstanding human beings Jack Warner, Chuck Blazer, Julio Grondona, Ricardo Teixeira and Joćo Havelange all told me.

(I'm being very sarcastic if you can't tell)

World soccer governance attracts corruption, period. There is simply too much money involved and too broad of a highly tangled and unregulatable international network for it to function cleanly. The people in charge are going to have to fuck up in a far more visible, disastrous and punishable way for any real change to happen.

Jack Warner was the big one - was Blazer really corrupt or just put in too many bad positions? Everywhere I look, there are differing stories/opinions. I understand that he made have been part of the whisteblowing against Bin Hammam (which epitomizes the corruption issue in FIFA - handing out cash incentives/bribes and still somehow getting away with it?).

There's a zero percent chance of CONCACAF and/or CONMEBOL leaving FIFA. Way too much money at stake

There is no need for any type of split, it would be just as corrupt here on this side of the world as it is in Europe.

At best, he was a longtime willing member of the FIFA good ole boy culture that fostered an environment where the corruption and other questionable practices were allowed to fester. At worst, he, much like so many other top FIFA executives who have never been punished, is a part of it as well.

Either way, his hands aren't clean.

But as the saying goes, he may be a bastard, but he's our bastard.

In any case, the idea that different federations breaking off from FIFA will in any way unrealistic. There's just too much money involved no matter what.
