i think its more blatter hates being told what to do by england, than england itself.
and platini despises the english game because of the money the premiership generates.
and with that money the clubs pay ridiculous wages and transfer fee's. which in turn really are damaging the game financially. look at man city. they
cant sell adebayor, tevez, johnson etc. because their wages are sky high.
no club can afford to pay them 150k plus a week. they are willing to pay van persie 250k a week. a million a month! now that is ridiculous. so they
are buying a team, not creating one from within.
platini is all about the money. look at the fines handed out this week...
bendtner gets fined 80k for flashing his paddy power briefs after scoring a goal....
russia are fined 96k for their fans fighting with the stewards
croatia are only fined 65k for their fans racist behaviour !!
so your in trouble for the monkey chants and banana throwing, but woe betide you if you break their strict advertising rules...
in other words, dont mess with the revenue stream
