Maybe he is hoping that FIFA will sue, but Blatter aint that stupid.

Pity he doesn't try it with the UCI, McQuaid just might take the bait :D

Yeah, their lawyers will be on that, just as soon as they finish up with Landis.

FIFA are a shambles. Hosting a World Cup in Qatar is staggering.

[SIZE="4"]no Kidding!!!! [/SIZE]

they even threatened the Brazilian World Cup organization to take it away from them & hand it over to the USA, due to a new court law looking to grant 50% discount on tickets for retirees & 65 + y.o. people-to which the FIFA mafia got upset with all the potential loses in that regard....... I mean- we criticize so hard the UCI and Pat, but in all fairness-they aren't even that close to the rotting level of corruption happening inside Football-we're talking about "billions" of Euros in crooked contracts,Match fixing/ bribes, TV copyrights, Clothing & Sport Advertising, Tournaments biding, Stadium Constructions for FIFA Approvals, traveling & expenses deals, etc - the list just goes on and on.....

And FIFA's drug testing is weaker than in Tennis, which is weaker than in Cycling.

He's a lawyer, enough said.

But, I am happy that someone like Mr. Pound had the correct collection of attibutes to empower him to tackle some of the biggest, richest, liars and cheats in the last 15yrs.

Sometimes you have to fight 'one nut' with a big "****" eh ...that's Richard Pound. I say bring him back to finish off what he started.

Different situation from Landis. Pound has a bit of weight to make things difficult.

But saying that the UCI looks like it is gearing up to become Chinese and all the perceived riches that entails. Pity ol' McQuaid doesn't realise the Chinese will screw him as soon as it is up and running.

Although they made sure Pound was run out of WADA soon enough and replaced with someone a lot more compliant and who isn't likely to go around shooting the sponsors golden geese.

I've always admired Pound. He's brash for sure, and maybe he loves to see his name in the news, but he's been hammering on the biggest names in this and other sports long before it became safe or fashionable. And it's cost him too, just ask the fine folks at the IOC and WADA.

Actually Pound says that Sport, in general is corrupt today.

I agree with him. UCI, ITF, FIFA, IOC, have all shown themselves to be corrupt, and are getting worse, in my opinion.

.....golly gee whiz but it seems that **** (aka Richard)Pound must have finally gone back and listened to some of the old flickerposts concerning FIFA's corruption...

...seems the late lamented flicker was once again way ahead of everyone on this critical issue...

I just read this article in El Pais about the same conference - apparently, Verbruggen is the head of an organisation called 'sport accord' which is charged with fighting corruption, amongst other things.

The headline is a good one: 'Verbruggen SA: Dracula in charge of a blood bank'
