"As a consequence of Mr Warner's resignation, all ethics committee procedures against him have been closed and the presumption of innocence is maintained," said a Fifa statement.
How very convenient for FIFA. If FIFA manage to persuade all other accused to follow the same path and say the same, then they can pretend that there's no corruption within the organisation at all.

I didn't expect any other outcome other than one that gave the message "There is no corruption at FIFA"...

What I really want is for the Swiss to strip them of association status. It's the only way for the world to see how bad FIFA truly are.

Its a system that works for the Metropolitan Police. Not that I'm suggesting the Met are as corrupt as FIFA, but the principle is the same and Mr Warner will still be collecting his full, final salary pension.

Who cares? Football is a pit of greed and depravity. Why not follow a nicer sport?

What makes you think I follow football? I'm following the stinking politics that attaches itself to an unreformed unaccountable 'charity' with a multi-million turnover.
