Why Should We Deep Condition Our Hair?

FIFA corruption scandal stinks up the Caribbean

Many of us avid football fans have had a low opinion of the FIFA family for a long time. Few would be surprised at the recent indictments by the US Justice Department that were disclosed by the impressive Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her team.

Yet the magnitude of these wire fraud, money laundering, bribing & racketeering allegations that went on in FIFA is just staggering. The FIFA regional bodies in the Caribbean (CONCACAF) and South America (CONMEBOL) have so damaged the game that both bodies should be abolished.

What really disappoints me as a fan of Jamaican football – part of CONCACAF – is that for all the brouhahaa by football officials in the Caribbean, Jamaica has never ever had one modern international class football pitch. Not one. Despite all the development promises – from CONCACAF Austin “Jack”Warner (ex President)  and Jeffrey Webb (current President) – it seems they and their cohorts have lined their pockets with millions whilst Caribbean professional players and fans were short changed for 20 years.

Warner had to be taken to court in 2010 for failing to pay Trinidadian players who performed so gallantly in 2006 world cup

The allegations presented by the US Justice Department are too numerous to cover but the paragraphs that stood out for me were c&p below.
