Is there any controlling body of a major sport that is not guilty of bribery, extortion, and corruption? It seems like they leverage their fans love of their game to exploit them and their cities and nations to enrich themselves. This is definitely true for the FIFA, the International Olympic Committee, NCAA, NFL, NBA, and MLB, and probably true for other big organizations as well. The national sports bodies in Sri Lanka have historically been riddled with corruption and cronyism and I suspect this is true for other nations too.
On his show, Jon Oliver took aim at FIFA, the international body that overseas soccer, which seems to be one of the worst of a terrible lot.
