FIFA in the news

All sorts of crazy stuff involving the big boys:
  • First off, a proposed age limit on Olympic soccer got shot down. Sepp wanted it all U-21, but said it'll likely remain at U-23 just without some designated overage players.

  • Then, FIFA wanted to license all player agents to have better control of the transfer process, but that also won't happen.

  • Finally, the organization's congress voted to allow young internationals to change the country they represent up until 21 years old. That way some players won't get bound by perhaps a bad decision when they're 16.
Not sure what to make of it all.
