So if that happened would there still be a World Cup without an organization to run it? I don't see that as a problem. If the world had to miss or skip one World Cup in order to clean house and get it right in a way that restores trust in the "beautiful game" then so be it. During World War II two World Cups were lost -- in 1942 and 1946. The next World Cup was in 1950.

While we do not have a World War as a backdrop to the present crisis in FIFA, we do have the tsunami of corruption, kickbacks, criminal prosecutions and investigations that can hamstring football's development and the credibility of the World Cup. This can't be a quick fix brought on by some cosmetic reforms. What is needed is an excoriation of the inner core of FIFA and that, my friend, is the only way that the world will regain its trust in the beautiful game.
