Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

"Many of those who now sit on the Executive Committee will not be there much longer," Pieth said.

"They will resign because of scandals."

Speaking to German newspaper the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Pieth responded when asked whether he expected more scandals: "I cannot judge yet," before adding "it would surprise me if it went off without scandal."

Pieth also said: "We must see to it that the gangsters do not escape in the wake of reform detractors."

"I've been trying to release this exasperating ISL dossier for a long time," he (Blatter) said.

"I'd be ready to do that today if only the court would allow it.

"If there are no new legal objections, it could happen at the end of January."

Alexandra Wrage, the founder and president of Trace International, was appointed to serve on the Independent Governance Committee... The committee met for the first time in Switzerland last week.

WSJ Interview with Alenandra

"I declined any fees or reimbursement of expenses. This sort of compliance work is squarely within TRACE’s non-profit mission to increase transparency and so we decided it was an appropriate project to accept on a pro bono basis. As a general rule, we decline funding from any source outside our membership".

"Fairly early on in the process, we’re going to assess FIFA’s response to allegations of past wrongdoing. The IGC is not a law enforcement body, of course, but we won’t hesitate to recommend further investigations if appropriate".

Andrew Jennings does it again. (* Via du Nord, Monday's post)

http://www.transparencyinsport.org/When_..._tv_rights.html

An explosive confidential letter written by FIFA general secretary Jérôme Valcke reveals that he and president Blatter secretly bypassed FIFA’s committees to give World Cup television rights to former vice-president Jack Warner, rather than sell them in the open.

Valcke wrote ‘Here is the agreement signed by the P (President Blatter). This deal has not been through all normal boards or comm. Hence so I'm asking to make no publicity on it for the time being. Kind regards, Jérôme.’

LAUSANNE: The 11-year-old FIFA-ISL corruption case is going to Switzerland's supreme court after appeals were lodged to block publication of a key document.

The Swiss Federal Tribunal said on Thursday that it has opened five separate case files. The cases are likely to take several months to process.

The court said the appellants' identities must remain confidential.

The committee overseeing reform at Fifa will decide in April whether it will conduct an investigation into the widespread allegations of past corruption at the highest levels of world football's governing body.

"We will decide then, after that meeting at the end of March, whether there should be an investigation into the more serious allegations of the past," Pieth told the Guardian. "We want to see Fifa's responses to our recommendations for future reform and other issues, including how seriously they deal with allegations themselves. If we are not satisfied with the response, all options are open to us, including setting up a commission with specialist investigators."

"I know this is very emotive and people are impatient," he said. "But people have waited 10 years for reform at Fifa, so I hope they can wait another two months."
