This week's red card has been coming. It goes to former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner, who, according to The Telegraph, received a highly suspicious payment of $1.2 million from a company run by Mohamed bin Hammam in 2011.

Bin Hammam just happens to be a former FIFA executive for Qatar, who just happened to have won the bid to host the 2022 World Cup.

Did Warner take a bribe to sway votes? That's not for us to say, but based on the evidence presented, he's not a man you'd want in a position of influence. 

A World Cup in Qatar always did seem a ridiculous proposition. Are we finally seeing the truth as to how it came about?
