John Oliver rips FIFA in 13-minute rant on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight”

June 9th, 2014

In an effort to help casual sports fans understand the ongoing World Cup corruption allegations, HBO’s John Oliver perfectly applied the “sausage principle” — “If you love something, never find out how it was made” — to FIFA and its inner workings. But then Oliver delves into the nitty-gritty regardless, and the result is a 13-minute tirade against what the “Last Week Tonight” host calls a “comically grotesque organization.”

We don’t need to set it up anymore. Just watch Oliver vent while nodding sadly to the many excellent, humorous points that he makes.

    I love the game and am excited for the World Cup, but John speaks the truth. It is a despicable and corrupt group. Now...
