FIFA needs a fresh start. In our perfect world the successor of Sepp Blatter would be someone completely disconnected from all the FIFA scandals – someone from the poker industry.
Sepp Blatter is stepping down (or is he), and the FIFA will appoint someone new for his position who’s probably already also connected to shady deals and negotiations, money laundering, and bribery.
What a truly fresh start it would be if FIFA brought in someone who’s never had anything to do with the organization and how smart would it be to look at the poker community for a candidate — poker being an industry that combines all the features of commerce with true love for a game.
At PokerListings our international editors took a look at the best potential successors for Sepp Blatter from the poker world. Some are humorous while others are slightly less so.
