Powerful Fools….FIFA

With the World Cup due to end on Sunday, an organisation gets the nomination for our latest Powerful Fools. It gets awarded to FIFA for their handling of the World Cup, especially for the following:

- Creating a huge black market in match tickets by handing out so many to sponsors instead of fans
- Making Dutch fans take off their orange trousers because they were advertising a beer that was not the disgusting Budweiser
- The Spanish referee who gave Italy their last minute penalty against Australia
- The English referee who gave 3 yellow cards to the same player
- The Russian referee who thought his job was to give cards to every single player on the pitch

There is still just enough time for them to something else to add to the list, but this is enough to merit the award.
