Is The New Ball A FIFA Conspiracy?

Is The New Ball A FIFA Conspiracy?

Is it just me or does it seem like every major tournament now features a new ball that moves in the air just a little more than it’s predecessor? Lahm and Frings (still excellent) long range goals for Germay in their 4-2 win over Costa Rica were in part due to the new Adidas Teamgeist ball (pictured) bobbing and weaving like Muhammad Ali in his prime.

Is it possible that FIFA (and UEFA) do this deliberately to give attacking teams an advantage, thus guaranteeing goals at major tournaments? If so, then I say carry on. The more six goal games in tournament football the better.
