What Will FIFA Do?

Tomorrow is the day that FIFA is expected to release its plan for reform.  The BBC explains what is at stake:
Having overseen the biggest crisis in Fifa's history, Sepp Blatter knows the next two days could well shape his legacy after 13 years at the top of world football.

If Fifa's president produces a series of serious measures which back up the zero-tolerance rhetoric we have been hearing for so long now, there might just be a chance he will be given the credit for cleaning up the discredited organisation.

Fail to deliver on his promises of reform and the damage to Blatter's already-tarnished reputation may be beyond repair.
This BBC interview with new FIFA VP Jim Boyce provides some optimism that fresh voices can indeed help to foster change.  That said, I'll believe it when I see it.
