FIFA's Latest Corruption Revelation Is Entirely Believable

Sure, Sepp Blatter's admission that there was an arrangement made prior to a vote on who would host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups seems like a shocking revelation.
But it's also entirely believable, given FIFA's power structure.
Blatter told state-owned Russian News Agency TASS, "For the World Cups it was agreed that we go to Russia because it's never been in Russia, eastern Europe, and for 2022 we go back to America."
