As President of FIFA, Sepp Blatter has a great deal of clout and power when it comes to the game of football. Since his appointment to the role back in 1998, he has amused us with a constant stream of simply ridiculous ideas. However, given his position of power, there is always the worry that he may be able to force some of these ideas through into law.
As one German journalist once said, “Sepp Blatter has fifty ideas before breakfast every morning, and fifty-one of them are bad.” Maybe for the sake of football, he should simply not get out of bed, and spare us his inane and frankly ridiculous ramblings.
Here, we look at a number of the more stupid ideas that he has come up with, including several that he has managed to pass into the laws of the game.
