Warner's departure poses more questions than answers
So what does Jack Warner's resignation tell us about Sepp Blatter's promise to make Fifa more transparent?
On the one hand few who have observed Fifa's lack of accountability will be sorry to see Warner go after 30 years at the top of Fifa.
The former vice-president has been at the centre of many corruption storms and it is no surprise that, facing an ethics investigation into claims he arranged to bribe members of the Caribbean Football Union on behalf of the former presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam, he chose to quit before he was pushed.
But in doing so he has denied football and Fifa the opportunity of a proper airing of the claims against him. In announcing his resignation on Monday, Fifa said all matters relating to the ethics committee investigation were closed with Warner presumed innocent (neat phrase, that).
This is exactly what Blatter was promising to change when he was given another overwhelming vote of confidence by the football world in Zurich at the start of the month.
One Fifa member told me that he believed Warner's departure represented a "start". But I am not so sure.
What if Bin Hammam, the man accused of trying to buy votes with wads of dollar bills at an unofficial meeting in Trinidad last month, now also resigns? Will we ever hear the truth of what really went on?
What about Warner's promise of a tsunami? Did he ever really know anything about other Fifa members and has he now elected to keep his mouth shut to save his reputation and his political career back home?
What will now happen to all those Caribbean countries and officials who were paid the money and who are holding on to it? Will the investigation still go ahead?
Yes, Warner's departure from the executive committee of Fifa will do wonders to improve Fifa's image. But it still poses a lot of questions about the way Fifa operates.
