It's good he's gone but I wonder who's going to replace him? The US investigation may help them weed out more Blatter types and oust them from Fifa so we don't just end up with someone similar or one of his cronies taking over but i'd imagine Fifa needs a proper overhaul before we see real change at the organisation. Apparently it'll be another 4 months before he's actually gone. No doubt he's caught wind of something to do with the investigation that's made him jump.

NO ELECTION UNTIL AT LEAST DECEMBER Domenico Scala, the chairman of FIFA's audit and compliance committee, says that, due to existing FIFA rules on the notice periods required for elections and for candidates to present themselves, the election of a new president may not take place until at least December.
Scala said: "While the timing will ultimately be up to the executive committee, the timing of election is likely to be between December and March."

If that letter wasn't the smoking gun, then something else on the trail from it will be. There's no other reason for Blatter to resign - remember his massive arrogance after winning the election last week. Quite the u-turn, so expect him to be holidaying in a country with no extradition treaty very soon.
Good riddance to the old crook. I hope he's arrested and ends up in prison for a long time for ruining the beautiful game. I hope the FBI et al get to the bottom of just how mired in filth he was.
