Sepp Blatter to FIFA -- I Quit This Bitch

Sepp Blatter has officially resigned as the president of FIFA -- after an FBI sting operation into the organization that led to the arrests of 14 FIFA execs. 

Blatter says he will spearhead the search for a replacement. 

Blatter ran for reelection and WON last week -- but says he now believes he is not getting the support he had hoped for from the international soccer community.
