SEPP Blatter’s vice-like grip on FIFA indicates that the ongoing twin investigations are the greatest hope for genuine reform, says David Davutovic.

    FOOTBALL Federation Australia doesn’t fear a potential backlash from Asia after voting against Sepp Blatter in Saturday’s FIFA presidential election.

    INFURIATED by her own ineptitude, Sam Stosur has been jettisoned from the French Open at Roland Garros by nemesis Maria Sharapova.

    SUPER filly Winx has destroyed her rivals to claim the $500,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks with a barnstorming finish at Doomben.

    SEPP Blatter shrugs off FIFA’s latest corruption scandal to win a record fifth term as president before delivering a bizarre acceptance speech.
