    NCAA, because of the holier than thou vibe one gets from a lot of the coverage of their sports/the stuff you hear from a lot of their supporters.

    Both are equally corrupt because they seem to thrive on illegal transgressions (which all sports have to deal with, not just these two organizations). However, in terms of more gross violations, the NCAA because of the amateur status of the players involved.

    So if you vote for NCAA are you voting for the schools themselves?

    NCAA: "We're going to suspend these five players we know broke rules, but not until after the bowl game."

    They all cheat. Ohio State is the latest one to get caught.

    I voted FIFA. It somehow seems worse when it is on a world level.

    FIFA. At least the NCAA doesn't have bribery accusations aimed at their possible presidents.

    Not all NCAA schools cheat either and with the way the media behaves(in a good way) a lot of the schools that do cheat get caught sooner or later. SMU, USC, and now Ohio State come to mind as the biggest profile cases and they were all punished appropriately or are about to be;)

    I voted FIFA: with the NCAA, it's the schools that are corrupt, not the organization. FIFA has to be one of the most corrupt organizations on earth, period. I don't think the NCAA awards the Men's BB Final Four, for example, based solely on which candidate city wheels in the most suitcases of cash per voting committee member.
