...the one, the only, Sepp Blatter.
Does this man ever know when to shut up? How much longer will his Jurassic views, corrupt and inappropriate behaviour be allowed to continue?
In 2004, SB made comments suggesting females wear tighter shorts to help promote the game: "They could, for example, have tighter shorts. Female players are pretty, if you excuse me for saying so, and they already have some different rules to men - such as playing with a lighter ball. That decision was taken to create a more female aesthetic, so why not do it in fashion? Let the women play in more feminine clothes like they do in volleyball."
As if women are going to agree with that?! Ok then, yes we'll wear tighter shorts. We'll suffer tight fabric riding up our crotches and causing discomfort, just for the viewing pleasure of perverted male spectators like yourself. Hey, why don't we scrap the t-shirts too and just play in sports bra's like they do in volleyball as well. We'll do that for you, because of course every little girl growing up liking football only wants to play so she can wear minimal clothing and promote a "sexier" game. God forbid they ever want to play football for the sheer enjoyment, become better players and achieve success!
In 2013, he managed to patronize the females attending the FIFA congress in Mauritius stating: "Any ladies in this room? Say something ladies! You are always speaking at home. Now you can speak here." In the same week, he described a candidate for it's executive committee, Moya Dodd, as "good, and good looking."
Unfortunately, for the vast majority who oppose this man, he is one of the most powerful men in sport. It is more likely that one day he will step down from his position, rather than a day when he is voted out of it. For now, FIFA will continue to cover up his blunders and he will continue to contradict all their campaigns against sexism/racism/bullying etc. SMH.
