Fifa President and self appointed ruler of football Slap (me on the head) Blatter won't back down in the poppy scandal. The man who should be at home smoking a pipe and wearing slippers won't listen to anyone on the matter.
"You want to wear little dogs on the football shirt which I think is wrong, sorry I know is wrong. I will have the whole world asking for different animals to be put on the jerseys so my answer is a no and changing my mind is a no. I ask that maybe you could come up with something else than a puppy; maybe a small flower would be more suitable. As long as its not political and doesn't offend anyone then that's all right. Now I have to walk my own dogs Brooking and Capello," the misunderstood man from Sweden said.
Maybe his idea of a flower may take off, a red flower with black in the middle isn't a bad idea, I wonder where the Fifa President will stick it?
