Earlier this morning, the world was rocked by yet another sex scandal. This time, rather than a politician or a rock star, it was one of the big bosses of the Formula 1 circus, Max Mosley. Sex in sports is nothing new. Mosley however seems to have taken things to a whole new level that should rock the world.
Max Mosley is the captain of one of the most successful sporting franchises the world has ever known, one that is worth more than many countries. He is also the son of a couple of Adolf Hitler’s supporters. So close in fact, that Hitler was a guest at their wedding.
Max hired hookers. No big deal in the grand scheme of things, except that what he allegedly did with those hookers in beyond comprehension. On Max’s visit to the dungeon, the roles and costumes had been conjured up to replicate the inside of a Nazi prison camp. With all his money, he didn’t have the brains to prevent 5 hours worth of video being shot. If you really want all the gory details, visit News Of The World. Suffice it to say that the scenario would be pretty messed up for most normal people. Mosley isn’t normal people. As the head of Formula 1, and the spawn of Adolf’s posse, MM is in an entirely different league. The sex aspect…who cares. Add in the other crap and it is vile and he should be held accountable somehow.
I would suspect that we might see some changes in the F1 hierarchy over the next few days. If not, there is an even bigger problem. Interestingly, there were screen grabs from the video all over the web this morning. Now, a google image search shows nothing. Isn’t it just amazing what insane amounts of money can do?
