The Onion, a satirical website, ran a story last week about the DoJ indictments and the FIFA executive being panicked into bringing the games forward (by 3 years…) to start on 27 May 2015 and be hosted by the USA (who were leading Germany 12:0 after 3 minutes, having been awarded 12 penalties.
Jack Warner, ex-FIFA vice-president, thought it was real, saying in a rambling 8 minute (now deleted) clip on YouTube while holding a print-out of the article
“….Then I look to see that Fifa has frantically announced, 2015, this year […] the World Cup, beginning May 27. If Fifa is so bad, why is it that the USA wants to keep the Fifa World Cup?”
Will they convict this guy?
Not a chance.
He can plead insanity and they’ll believe him….
