betting scandal tops list at FIFA post #1  quote:



Soccer: Betting scandal tops football's agenda

15.02.05


FRANKFURT - Betting on football will be at the top of the agenda at next month's meeting of Fifa's executive committee as the sport's governing body looks for ways to prevent further match-fixing scandals.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter said the sport had to take heed of the corruption case that has engulfed German football.

"The topic of bets will be the most important thing under discussion at the executive committee meeting on March 7 and 8," said Blatter.

Referee Robert Hoyzer, 25, was arrested on Saturday. He had already admitted taking money for fixing matches.

I don't think that betting is as much of a problem as FIFA are making it out to be, yes the situation in Germany is a and thing but aprt from that I have not seen any accusations of betting and referees throwing games for financial gain.
FIFA should be involved in more important things like blatant cheating like players who dive, and for managers that bring into doubt the honesty of officials ( Mourinho's ridiculos claims during the Barca game and a smaller incident in Scotland come to mind) these are the real issues that are damginf the game.
