FIFA craziness (as usual) June 16, 2010

I had to laugh at this typical FIFA related story – it seems the powers that be will stop at nothing when it comes to protecting perceived sponsorship violations !

I speak of course, of this crazy story, where several dozen orange clad Dutch supporters beauties (see below) were questioned by FIFA in a case of apparent ambush marketing from beer company Bavaria.  The terrible display of national pride – because the Netherlands play in  … wait for it … orange – happened during this week’s World Cup game between the Netherlands and Denmark (2-0).

So even though there were no logos, no slogans or flags or anything – just orange clad women – FIFA took umbrage upon hearing that Bavaria had sponsored the women to go and cheer at the match and promptly started an investigation !

These idiots are ruining football – between that and meddling with the bloody footballs … so far this World Cup has been pretty much crap.

PS : Drink BAVARIA BEER –  for that cool refreshing taste – while watching the World Cup !
