    No, they should have lots of refs to reduce the number of matches that indiduals referee, so as to reduce the possibility of hypothetically corrupt individuals having a major impact on the game. And those who think that there is not, and has never been, corruption in football are mistaken. From major European leagues to World Cups, corruption is a matter of historical record.

    tbh I agree 7, I was just being a ****. They were a sop to Fifa's intransigence on the whole technology thing. One of the ****ers got Kos sent off last year though

    What difference would that make, if they're all corrupt?

    None, if they are all corrupt but such a measure would be working from the standpoint that they're not.

    Really? I'd lost interest in recent weeks tbh. As the exposure of the FBI/DOJ interfering with the election and attempting a coup didn't seem to register as a scandal I assumed that nothing would ever change. #LongLiveTheSwamp

    Unless you mean the 'Hillary tape'. They can't show it and it's being called a fake anyway.
