Earth to FIFA: Give us back our game

Andy Spalding’s post On soccer and social change: It’s not about the sport was nicely articulated and I couldn’t agree more.

The FIFA football scandal transcends geographies and socio-economic barriers.

The person on the street (wherever they may be) may not understand or care about the nuances of shell companies and off-shore banking arrangements. But often they care passionately about their local football club and global football competition.

If the widespread feelings of “give me back my game” can be productively channeled by governments and the private sector, the FIFA scandal may help provide that common anti-corruption element sought by fair-minded athletes and businesses alike in their respective arenas — a level playing field.
