"The role of Blazer in the CONCACAF will be exposed. His addiction to the
stock market and how this impacted on the CONCACAF's finances will all be

Blazer's contract and even today as I write to you he has none.
"You will learn why Blazer became vice-president of CONCACAF ahead of Sunil
Gulati, the present president of the USSF. His wheeling and dealing will stymie
the international football community.
"They have retaken the World Cup TV Rights first given to me by the former
President of FIFA, Dr Joao Havelange, a matter for which they have not heard the
last. They have refused to give me any of my 29-year pension." Said Mr. Warner.
