The Dawn Of ?Culture Of Rights?

German officials announced Thursday that they will temporarily suspend the European Union?s Schengen travel agreement to allow for border checks in an effort to prevent hooligans from entering the country during the World Cup.

Normally people traveling in the Schengen travel zone can go from one country to another without showing their identity cards, but this won?t be the case this summer. Interior minister Wolfgang Schaeuble has these words for all you hooligans reading this blog:

?They won?t enjoy their stay here. Those who want to cause disturbances should simply stay at home.?

Perhaps Mr. Schaeuble and others read these articles about hooligans in Poland and the growing threat of neo-Nazi losers before they issued this new edict?

In another development,Baffoe has been appointed as team manager in European affairs for the Ghana Black Stars.

I must be frank to myself that whoever made this intelligent decision has made a very good choice.Baffoe is a great asset to sports and really understands the game , he would use his experience as a sports moderator on the german television (DSF) to help a lot.Anyway, Marcel Desailly is also still missing from the technical team.


Die FIFA hat ein Wettverbot f?r die WMSpieler und ihre Angeh?rigen erlassen. Mit dieser Massnahme will der Weltverband m?gliche Wettmanipulationen an der WM in Deutschland unterbinden.
Die Spieler m?ssten im Vorfeld des Turniers schriftlich erkl?ren, dass sie nicht auf WM-Spiele wetten, gab FIFAPr?sident Joseph Blatter bekannt. Auch der Verzicht auf jegliche Dopingmittel ist wie schon vor vier Jahren in Japan und S?dkorea Bestandteil der Erkl?rung.
Blatter k?ndigte zudem an, 2007 erneut f?r das Pr?sidium zu kandidieren. Der 70-J?hrige ist seit 1998 im Amt.
