I used to think it was just the International Olympic Committee who were bloated with the idea of their own self-importance, then when Sepp Blatter appeared I had to add Fifa to that list, but I still assumed Uefa weren’t really so bad. I mean, they’re only in charge of the football on one continent, how deluded could they be?
But it seems they are as bad as the others. This is a short piece from The Week, quoting the Polish publication Rzeczpospolitej and pointing out a few of the decrees from Uefa around the recent Euro 2012 championships. Read and wonder at their delusions of grandeur on a scale not seen since Marie Antoinette.
