World Cup Has Drunken Sailor Balls Issues, Adidas Requests Help From Gore

JOHANNESBURG — FIFA acknowledges there might be something wrong with the Jabulani World Cup ball, but won’t act on any problems until after the tournament.

Many players have likened the Jabulani to a “supermarket ball,” saying it is too unpredictable and flies through the air too easily.

“We’re not deaf,” FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said Saturday. “FIFA is not unreceptive about what has been said about the ball.”

Valcke said FIFA will discuss the matter with coaches and teams after the World Cup, then meet with manufacturer Adidas.

Goalkeepers have complained about the ball at every recent World Cup, although this time forwards and even coaches have added their laments.

Denmark defender Daniel Agger said the ball made some outfielders look like “drunken sailors.

Manufacturers Adidas have defended their World Cup ball, insisting altitude, pollution, and air temperature  is playing a significant part in the way it moves through the air.

Adidas  has called in an environmental expert Al Gore to help deflect criticism of the ball.. Adidas states,” this is a man that knows something about balls”..
