Blatter admits to cheating as a player!

September 30, 2009


Sepp Blatter, as we know, is the lord almighty in the world of football

What he says, GOES! He says jump, and we all say “How high Sir?”

So today the man that is the leading light when it comes to the rules of the game has publicly admitted that he used to cheat when he was a player, and that its really not that bad. At the FIFA Executive meeting in Rio, he said:

I know myself i was always a striker, when i was dribbling but you couldn’t get through, if a player put his foot there, what do you do? You do a little bit more than you should do [in reference to diving]. Is this so terrible. I don’t think so”

So there we go. The man that runs world football says it is ok to dive. This makes a mockery of any action that was taken against Eduardo. For he did not dive, but as Blatter says the keeper went to ground and what should he do?..”a little bit more than you should do”…and that is what Eduardo did. That is what happens in the modern game. We get so excited about what we deem as cheating. Personally, i think it should be stamped out. I do not agree with Blatter’s sentiments. But now he says that it is acceptable, i hope everyone shuts it tight, as every week we see players try to cheat their way to a result.

Its all perfectly fine.

Next week: Blatter advocates elbowing. What a fool.

    Blatter is a disgrace.

    He should take a look at the example set by Andrew Strauss (England) and Danny Vittori (NZ) in the IPCC Trophy. Both recalled batsmen, given out by the umpire in dubious circumstances.

    Plus, Adam Gilchrist (Aus) always walked when he knew he was out.

    Football fans respect honesty, whether it be by way of hard work, courage or taking a tackle without drama. George Best, and Jimmy Greaves are examples of players who could take a hit, get up and get on with it and, more often than not, pay it back with a goal or two. Fernando Torres and Ryan Giggs are of the same ilk.

      Even Berba has been scrambling to his feet even when tripped lately.

      Blatter and Peter de Villiers need to hook up.
      “All part of the game.”

    Get Real. “DIVING” as we know and see today is nothing like when Blattner would have played, Hell, that must have been 40 or 50 years ago! Only the constant and ever-evolving use of ‘the dive’ by masters such as Eduardo, Ronaldo, Henri, and multitudes of others has brought the game to what we see today.
    A tackle that produced ‘a dive’ back then, would probably be a redcard today!
    And I really don’t equate ‘diving’ to ‘cheating’ per se. It is parallel to any place in the game a player tries to ‘gain advantage’, such as ‘false signalling for throws or kicks’, ‘grabbing the uniform’, ‘obstructing the ball’, etc. Does anybody really think these fall under “cheating”? I’d prefer to call that player a ‘loser’ or a ‘hack’.
    Lets save the word “CHEAT” for things like ‘point-shaving’, ‘laying down in a game’.

      well if you fall over when you shouldnt have fallen over..i equate that to cheating. It may not carry the stigma as we see so much of it today, but anything that is an infringement of the rules in a deliberate sense is cheating. So a deliberate shirt pull = cheat. A late tackle when going for the ball = not cheat. Quite simple in my eyes.
