Even if David Ginola gains the nominations required by Thursdays deadline to stand against Sepp Blatter, his improbable bookmak Antworten

LONDON - Even if David Ginola gains the nominations required by Thursdays deadline to stand against Sepp Blatter, his improbable bookmaker-funded campaign could be scuppered by FIFAs gambling rules. Andrew Billings Jersey .Ginolas campaign is being organized by stunt-prone Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, which is paying the former France international 250,000 pounds ($375,000) to seek the FIFA presidency.And ahead of Thursdays deadline to enter the race, FIFA has issued an election guide that stresses that official candidates are bound by its ethics code. One regulation, designed to protect the integrity of football, states: Persons bound by this code shall be forbidden from taking part in, either directly or indirectly, or otherwise being associated with betting, gambling.Asked if the betting rule applied to presidential campaigns, FIFA told The Associated Press on Sunday: It will be part of the eligibility assessment of prospect FIFA presidential candidates by the Ad-Hoc Electoral Committee in accordance with the electoral regulations.Ginolas activities would only fall under the code if he gained five nominations from FIFAs 209 national federations by Thursday.Asked about the betting rule, Paddy Power said in a statement to the AP: Both the heading and the content of the rule clearly relate to the integrity of football matches and competitions.It did not respond to further questions on the issue.Ginola is yet to gain the public backing of a single federation since launching his campaign on Jan. 16 at a chaotic media conference, where he struggled to answer questions about FIFA and Paddy Power branding featured heavily.After the bookmaker was questioned about its role in the campaign, the company said it will stop contributing financially before the deadline.Paddy Power assisted by getting this campaign off the ground in the run up to Ginola getting on the ballot and will not be contributing financially beyond 27th Jan, the company said.The website currently says campaign cash is being held by Rebooting Football — a subsidiary of Paddy Power plc, who is the primary sponsor of the Campaign.The crowd-funding website says it is trying to raise 2.3 million pounds ($3.4 million) by Feb. 28 — by which time the former Paris-Saint Germain and Tottenham winger would hope to be several weeks into the official FIFA campaign period.We have always been clear this needs to be a fan-backed campaign, Paddy Power said. Indeed crowd funding is required to continue campaigning once he is an official candidate.Ginolas website says that pledges are non-refundable, even if he does not make it onto the FIFA ballot. But Paddy Power now insists in case David doesnt make it through, we will look to fully reimburse fans who have donated to the campaign.As well as gaining five nominations, Ginola has to prove to FIFA that he has carried out an active role in football in two of the last five years.The 47-year-old Ginola will be relying on his consultancy work for French amateur club Etoile Frejus, which plays in the third tier. Club president Alexandre Barbero told the AP that Ginola worked with him mainly over the phone over the past six years and is unpaid.Blatter is seeking a fifth four-year term as FIFA president in the May election.___Rob Harris can be followed at Billy Price Bengals Jersey . "It was awesome," he said. Coming off an ugly three-game sweep at the hands of the Yankees, Toronto found itself in a deep hole early after the Reds put an eight spot up on starter Liam Hendriks (six runs in 1 2/3 innings pitched) and Todd Redmond in the second. Malik Jefferson Bengals Jersey . -- Caris LeVert had 14 points and a career-high 11 rebounds for his first career double-double, and No. . - Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II says the NFL has told the team it will not be docked a pick in this years draft for coach Mike Tomlins foray onto the field against Baltimore last November.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - New team. Same old brash and bold Rex Ryan.The Buffalo Bills new coach opened his inaugural news conference with the team Wednesday by tapping the microphone and saying: Is this thing on? Because its getting ready to be on.Outlining his objectives, Ryan said the job is his last chance to prove himself. He vowed to build the Bills into a bully and said he has an additional chip on his shoulder after being fired by the New York Jets.Yes, its personal, he said, about being fired. Its embarrassing.Despite having a grudge against the Jets, Ryan maintained the New England Patriots remain the AFC East team he wants to beat the most.Though he stopped short of guaranteeing Buffalo winning a Super Bowl, Ryan did guarantee winning a championship as being his sole pursuit.Were not afraid of it, Ryan said. My message to the players is get ready. Were going to be playing games in January and so forth. Were going to build a bully and were going to see if youre going to play us for 60 minutes.The entertaining, provocative front comes as the Bills search for relevance and under new owners Terry and Kim Pegula, who bought the team in October. Though coming off a 9-7 season, which matched Buffalos best finish in 10 years, the team still missed the playoffs to extend the NFLs longest active drought to 15 seasons.Ryan spent six seasons with the Jets, where he went 50-52, including 4-2 in the playoffs. He was fired along with general manager John Idzik following a 4-12 finish.He replaces second-year coach Doug Marrone, who surprised the Bills by opting out of his contract on Dec. 31.Ryan made a veiled reference to Marrones departure by saying: This football team deserves a loyal coach.Terry Pegula shares Ryans confidence and aggressive approach.We want the Buffalo Bills to be a nightmare to play against, he said.After interviewing 12 candidates, Pegula hired someone with previous head-coaching experience to take over a team he considers on the verge of being a contender.Ryans background is on defence. He inherits a unit that has been among the NFLs most aggressive over the past two years. Last season, Buffalo finished fourth in yards allowed, led tthe league with 54 sacks and produced three Pro Bowl linemen. Sam Hubbard Bengals Jersey. Many members of Ryans defensive staff with the Jets are expected to fill vacancies in Buffalo. That includes Dennis Thurman taking over as co-ordinator to succeed Jim Schwartz, whose contract was terminated by the Bills on Tuesday.Ryan intends to retain Bills defensive backs coach Donnie Henderson. The Bills announced special teams co-ordinator Danny Crossman is staying.Ryans biggest challenge is on offence, and a unit that finished 26th in yards gained.Kyle Orton, who replaced second-year starter EJ Manuel five games into the season, said he intends to retire, leaving Manuel as the only experienced quarterback currently on the Bills roster.Ryan said he and his staff — including newly hired offensive co-ordinator Greg Roman — are beginning to evaluate the roster and its too early to make any determination.Ryan and Roman share a run-first-philosophy.Ryan is no stranger to Buffalo. His father, Buddy Ryan, previously served as the University at Buffalos defensive co-ordinator in the 1960s.Rex Ryan and his two brothers spent their teen years in Toronto, a two-hour drive from Buffalo. Ryan avidly followed the Bills because many games were broadcast across Southern Ontario.He listed off many former Bills greats from the 1960s and 70s, including fullback Cookie Gilchrist, Hall of Fame offensive guard Billy Shaw, and an offensive line dubbed The Electric Company, which paved the way for O.J. Simpson.Ryan spent his first day getting a literal taste of Buffalo after flying into town Tuesday morning.He had a beer with Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly at bar near Ralph Wilson Stadium. Later, he was in a suite to watch the Pegulas other team, the NHLs Sabres, retire former star goalie Dominik Haseks No. 39 before losing to the Detroit Red Wings.Ryan grew up a Toronto Maple Leafs fan, but noted hes changing allegiances.If Bruce Gamble was still in the net for the Leafs, maybe Id be a Leafs guy, Ryan said, referring to the goalie who played in Toronto in the late 1960s and early 70s. But Im a Sabre all the way.___AP NFL website: and White NFL Jerseys Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
