“reprehensible behavior is finally exposed.”

Rod has commented on the international scandal rocking footballs governing body. He praised the arrest and indictment of 14 FIFA officials, who prosecutors claim received up to $150 million in bribes, saying their “reprehensible behavior is finally exposed.”

In all, the U.S. Justice Department and prosecutors for the Eastern District of New York have compiled a federal indictment including 47 counts of bribery, fraud and money laundering, relating to rights to televise games, game locations – including the lucrative World Cup – and even who would hold leadership positions.

Rod posted on Twitter saying greed has sullied what should have been a simple mission for the Federation Internationale de Football Association. “Instead of football programs for underprivileged children,” he said, “the Fat Cats got fatter.”

SMILER agrees with Rod and thinks we should now forgive America for re-naming our beautiful game Soccer!
