Perhaps Probably Look, I know the above headline definitely didn’t take you by surprise — at all.

It’s a pretty widely belief — since, roughly, about the middle of the aughts — that Sepp Blatter, among others, partook in some pretty shady dealings over nearly two full decades as the head of world football’s governing body.

The important thing, now, is that FIFA — or, the new folks in charge of FIFA — also believe this to be true — or, at the very minimum, appear interested in taking a crack at proving it to be true in order to take the spotlight off themselves. The new FIFA! Same as the old FIFA…

Blatter’s day in (an American federal) court is presumably still coming — we’re counting on you, Loretta Lynch — so this’ll have to do, for now.
