AMSTERDAM - Dutch football association chief Michael van Praag says he wants to clean up FIFAs sullied image and expand the Worl Antworten

AMSTERDAM - Dutch football association chief Michael van Praag says he wants to clean up FIFAs sullied image and expand the World Cup if he succeeds Sepp Blatter as president. Vans Shoes Clearance Sale .FIFA under Blatters stewardship, is doing badly and has lost all credibility, the 67-year-old administrator said at Amsterdams Olympic Stadium on Wednesday.FIFA is constantly under suspicion. Of conflicts of interest, of nepotism, of corruption.Van Praag offered an olive branch to Blatter — who is widely expected to win a fifth term in the May 29 ballot — saying he would be happy to have him as an adviser, and head of a Sepp Blatter Foundation to help underprivileged children.He said Blatter has already told him he doesnt want to take up the offer, but it still stands.The former Ajax chairman stressed his key platform will be reforming FIFA, cutting ties with the Blatter era.I have nothing against Mr. Blatter. In fact, I like him a lot as a person, Van Praag said. However, someone who has led an organization for so many years and who has become the personification of its poor image, can no longer be the face of a modernization operation or of a new FIFA.The Dutchman who has led his national federation since 2008 and was at the helm of Ajax in 1995 when the team won the Champions League, said he would begin campaigning in earnest by approaching key figures in football and telling them he wants to serve only one four-year term in office before handing the reins to a new generation of leaders.One of the new generation threw his hat into the ring shortly before Van Praags news conference, Portugal great Luis Figo. The Dutchman said he does not know Figo but welcomed him to the race to dethrone Blatter.Van Praag said he submitted his candidacy to FIFA this week with backing from five federations: Belgium, Sweden, Scotland, Romania and the Faroe Islands, as well as the Netherlands.He added that other European federations support him, but he did not name them. He will have to convince Blatters traditional powerbase outside of Europe to accept his candidacy.Van Praag attempted to play down Blatters front-runner position, likening himself to one of the giant-killing lower-tier clubs that defeated English powers including Chelsea and Manchester City in the FA Cup last weekend.He also said combatting match-fixing would be another priority, and said FIFA should be far more transparent, including publishing its presidents salary package.In a move that could woo national federations outside Europe, Van Praag said the World Cup, should be extended to include proportionally more countries outside Europe, because playing in the tournament demonstrably accelerates the development and popularity of football in the participating countries.And the huge amounts of money FIFA generates should be better spent, he said.FIFA has to go back to basics, Van Praag said. As FIFA president, I believe that as much money as possible should be made available for football in its purest form, and as little as possible for side issues. Vans Shoes Australia Sale . Louis against the Blues. The Canucks picked up their second straight victory in the swings opener on Tuesday in Calgary before getting routed in Minnesota last night, 5-1. Cheap Vans Shoes Australia Free Shipping . It all would have been for naught, however, had it not been for some clutch shooting in the fourth quarter by Kobe Bryant and a couple of equally critical hustle plays by Derek Fisher and Pau Gasol in the final minutes. . And by all indications, the team is expected to select phenom Connor McDavid with their selection. The Buffalo Sabres, who were knocked down to the second overall pick after finishing with the worst regular season record, are expected to take the other generational player in Jack Eichel.NEW YORK -- NBA owners seem as committed as Commissioner Adam Silver to ending Donald Sterlings ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers. The leagues advisory/finance committee held its first meeting about Sterling on Thursday, two days after Silver said he would urge owners to force a sale of the team. The 10-member committee held a conference call to discuss "the process for termination of Donald T. Sterlings ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers," NBA executive vice-president Mike Bass said in a statement. "The committee unanimously agreed to move forward as expeditiously as possible and will reconvene next week." Silver banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million Tuesday for making racist comments. Sterling can have no association with the league or the team, but Silver wants more. A forced sale would require approval by three-fourths of the leagues 30 owners. Silver said he was confident he would get the votes. Minnesota owner Glen Taylor chairs the committee that also includes Miamis Micky Arison, the Lakers Jeanie Buss, Oklahoma Citys Clay Bennett, New Yorks James Dolan, Bostons Wyc Grousbeck, San Antonios Peter Holt, Phoenixs Robert Sarver, Indianas Herb Simon, and Torontos Larry Tanenbaum.

First, owners must force Sterling to give it up -- which he may choose fight. According to the leagues constitution and bylaws, Silver or an owner would have to file a written charge against Sterling, who would have five days to respond. Silver would then call a hearing of the board of governors, which would vote after hearing the evidence against Sterling. Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive hopes it doesnt come to that. "I dont want to talk about kind of the legal side of it because I cant really comment on it, but my feeling is that I have faith in people," he said. "And I would hope that at some point Mr. Sterling would come to his senses and do the right thing. That he would apologize to Magic Johnson, that he would apologize to the fans, the league, the black community and he would do the right thing and he would accept what Commissioner Silver has suggested, he would put the team up for sale and perhaps even take a very small portion of the substantial profits and donate them to a good cause. "Its not going to be easy to own a team where the fans dont welcome you, where the sponsors shun you and where youre not welcomed by the other owners. And I think he can do the right thing and hopefully good sense will prevail at some point." ' ' '
