Soccer Pimp: Update

No sooner had I wondered if Jack Warner had somehow betrayed Sepp Blatter's loyalty is he cleared of all charges by FIFA's disciplinary committee. Allow me to go into further detail about why he got in trouble. Jack(ass) Warner was in hot water because the media caught wind of a racketeering operation involving his son, who sold around 9,000 World Cup tickets with heavy premiums to fans all over the world. The tickets were sold through a Trinidadian travel company owned by - you guessed it - Jack Warner. It is estimated the Warner family made off with close to a million dollars in sales from those tickets.

And now, once again, Jack Warner escapes unscathed. Accountability is not a FIFA value, evidently.
