Nigerian President Rescinds 2 Year Ban on Football Team

"The President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GCFR) on Monday graciously rescinded last Wednesday’s decision to withdraw Nigerian national football teams from FIFA/CAF football competitions." according to the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) site.

I particularly like the part about "graciously rescinding". We all know that FIFA strong armed them into withdrawing the ban that was imposed just last week. While this was obviously a poor and idiotic move on Pres. Goodluck Jonathan's part for the simple sake of ruining player development by preventing international competition, he also made the stupid move of ticking off Sepp Blatter. In other words, Sepp punched him in the nose once then went for the gut repeatedly until Pres. Goodluck Jonathan was knocked out.

Guess we see who won this round. Next up in Lopsided Fights Against Authority, who will win a fight between the island nation of Grenada and CONCACAF President Jack Warner....
