Everyone hates Sepp Blatter

Sepp Blatter was booed during the women's Olympics football final so much that he refused to hand out medals in the men's event.  Ha ha ha aha

The FIFA president received a chorus of disapproving boos during the USA v Japan match the other night, almost certainly due to the hilariously sexist comments he made in 2004 where he claimed that to improve the game they should:
They could, for example, have tighter shorts. Female players are pretty, if you excuse me for saying so, and they already have some different rules to men - such as playing with a lighter ball. That decision was taken to create a more female aesthetic, so why not do it in fashion?"
Wow.  He then moved on to other sports like golf where he said "the only irons that women should be getting close to are ones that have steam coming out of them.  Am I right guys?" which I thought was just awful of him.
