Last week's indictments of 14 participants in various FIFA corruption has apparently made soccer's corporate misbehavior a hot topic.
Just check out the prices for Scottish investigative reporter Andrew Jennings' 2006 book, Foul!: The Secret World of Fifa: Bribes, Vote Rigging and Ticket Scandals. As of 11:20 a.m. Wednesday, Amazon had three listings for the paperback book: Two new copies at $1,496.01 and $2,093.11 respectively and one used copy at—are you ready?—$3,783.61.
If you're not willing to spend that much for a nine-year-old book, there is a hardcover available for "only" $470.70.
Jennings' book has been credited with blowing the lid off FIFA corruption and eventually leading to last week's indictments and the resignation of FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
