But after incidents such as the Frank Lampard goal that was disallowed in England's 4-1 World Cup loss to Germany despite clearly crossing the line, the subject has become hard to avoid with even Blatter admitting it would be "nonsense not to reopen the file".
Speaking at the Youth Olympics in Singapore, Blatter also said clubs who were unhappy at the scheduling of international friendlies should take it up with their individual football associations, rather than blame Fifa.
More than 50 international friendly matches will take place across the world on Wednesday, just as leagues in Europe are getting ready to start and Asian leagues are resuming after the World Cup.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has led criticism of the timing of England's friendly with Hungary but the Football Association said it was a matter for Fifa.
"There are two dates in the year for friendly matches but it means you do not have to use these dates," added Blatter.
"If you want to play a friendly match then bring your second or third team, nobody tells you to promote the best players.
"Don't make a lot of noise about that [the timing] by saying that Fifa is saying this... it is not Fifa."
