    Sepp Blattner’s watch collection

    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/48865823


    60 watches missing plus presumably others still in his possession. Anyone know what Sepp has in his collection?

    That’d be about right.

    Well, I'm not shedding a tear for Sepp Blatter. He's a liar, a cheat, a criminal, and surprisingly cheap bribe (I remember reading that the bribes were only around $50,000).

    Probably because there’s room for doubt about them being personal watches or bribes. They were in his office, rather than his home, and 120 were returned last year. We’re talking about pretty big money. The Brazilian FA spent over £1 million on gift Parmigianis.

    Even when I was quite young, maybe 12 or 13, I remember saying that my dream job was being on the Olympic or World Cup (Soccer) selection committee as the money, the travel and the freebies would be tremendous! I really did and have thought that for just so long as have half of my friends. And if I thought that nearly 40 years ago how could it be a surprise to anybody that all these people have been lining their pockets? Honestly!
