Judgment day for Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini dawns Monday when FIFA's ethics court is expected to ban the scandal-scarred soccer body's most powerful leaders.The FIFA president and his one-time intended successor face being kicked out of the world's favorite sport for at least several years over a $2 million payment Blatter approved for Platini in 2011 . Blatter and Platini, through his lawyers, already promised appeals that would need to be processed urgently ahead of FIFA's presidential election on Feb. 26 .On Monday, Blatter could get a longer ban than Platini if his case involves falsifying FIFA accounts.In recent ethics cases where financial misconduct was not proven, judges imposed a six-year ban on FIFA honorary vice president Chung Mong-joon of South Korea and seven years for Harold Mayne-Nicholls of Chile, who led FIFA's technical inspections of the 2018-2022 bids.
