Dollars, euros, pounds. It's all money at the end of the day but's that's not to say those currencies are completely interchangeable. At this moment in time, the almighty dollar are almost on par with the euro.
That wasn't the case six years ago. Which is why there's been some confusion over yesterday's statement from FIFA concerning the extraordinary 'loan' agreement with the FAI in the aftermath of Thierry Henry's handball.
FIFA said they gave the FAI $5 million. However, many of us in Ireland have been reporting €5 million. Today, the despots of football administration have clarified exactly how much they shelled out.
FIFA corrects its own statement - it wasn't $5m given to Ireland but 5 million euros

So, with historical exchange rates that's approaching $7.5 million. Over $2 million more than they originally said they paid, which is of course a mere drop in the ocean.
