I think some did complain - they just weren't listened to.

The BBC did a documentary on FIFA corruption about a decade ago.

I notice Sepp Blatter is trying to claim that he knew nothing about it. It's like he's trying to channel that policeman in Casablanca "I'm shocked, shocked to find that corruption is going on in here".

Barcelona wins the UEFA champions league. Ties Liverpool and Bayern Munich at 3rd on the all-time league winners list.

Tampa Bay ties up the Stanley Cup finals with Chicago.

The rest of it is a bit depressing and involves the suppression of the Jacobite uprising, the Highland clearances and the success of Better Together in the 2014 Referendum, etc.

It won't last. We know this.
