I'd rather Qatar hold it than Russia. We see how well they handled the Winter Olympics.

do you even football?

Qatar hosting a world cup is probably the most corrupt shit I've ever seen.... why is Qatar hosting the World Cup? Qatar does even have a football team? all these bribes and corruption are destroying football, fixed group stages, fixed games, the referees favouring teams in world cups like South Korea, teams like Mali and Cayman Islands having the same power as Germany or Italy, America (United States) is worried more about football than most countries,

they are chaning everything, the world cup may as well change to a winter tournament

I seriously hope Blatter gets jailed and Qatar gets removed from the world cup, a country as such does not deserve football


Again, this is just a sport corporation who is out to make a profit. They don't give a care if things are fixed, or if referees favor teams. So long as they get more money, it's all okay. I don't see why it's a big deal if sports aren't "fair" or are "fixed". It's not like it matters. Say you were a CEO of a large corporation and you had to choose which country to visit for an event that only happens every x amount of years. Some wealthy country gives you a huge offer that far outweighs other offers, but the problem is their country doesn't have something related to your corporation that others do. As the CEO, your choice is either (a) take the best offer, or (b) screw the best offer, and go to the country that contains your brand. Of course as a good CEO you'll go with (a). Why? Because next time those countries if they want to host your corporation event they will bid higher and higher to win your spot. I don't understand why people see this as corruption. Is corruption trying to make your corporation as much money as possible? If so, I don't think anyone understands the point of what being a business is all about. It's not to make friends or be loyal. It is making the most money possible.

Qatar hosting the world cup would give them more money than they bribed with, its all about money and isn't really surprising


Exactly! This guy understands how businesses operate. Businesses are NOT there to "play fair" they exist to make money.


now I can see you don't even watch football.... FIFA is a non profit organization and the rules are there for a reason, you're talking about countries offering more money or CEOs wanting to gain more, yet you ignore the fact that even those kind of acts are illicit and are penalized, so yes this is corruption at its best, that's like saying giving money to an officer as a bribe is an investment and the police officer should accept it because he wants more "money"

you don't see the problem? fine, but the rest of the world does, sadly there's more countries that would accept the bribes than countries that actually care for football

Qatar is the living example, and you don't care? then see the number of deaths due to the constructions forced into Qatar

There does seem to be some confusion about the way a world cup location is decided on.
It is not a bid where you give money its a bid about the location the stadiums the culture and all that.
If a country uses bribes to get votes than it is a corrupted deal.
2022 in Qatar will be a winter World cup because it can not be played during the summer.(if i remember correctly the final is to be played on the 4th Advent)
That will lead to a lot of leagues having to change there schedule just so it can happen.

Its also worth noticing that alleged 1200 workers died between 2010 and 2014 building stadiums in Qatar.
Fifa made 4826 million$ with the 2014 world cup while having expenses of 2224Mio$.


That's insane, the amount of profit they make while claiming to be non profit. They put the burden on the countries to build the stadiums and stuff and they lay back and reap in th money.

I didn't know they were planning on holding it during the winter, i don't know how tolerable the weather will be even if this happens. And like you said, it will mess up with the leagues from various countries. It would be interesting tO see how it plays out

Instead of asking lots and lots of questions and then dismissing it all by saying, "Who cares" you should actually find out what happened.

I don't understand why people are proud to display an opinion based entirely on ignorance. It's like you're holding up a sign saying, "Look at me I'm dumb!"


Yes, I am ignorant to the issue, but only because I don't care enough to do any research on the topic, because "who cares" is my view point. I'm more holding up a sign saying "Hey guys, I think this issue is a waste of time."

That's the point i was trying to make but we got off track, it's not so much a big deal that the FBI needed to intervene, considering all the problems we are facing here

Here we go again with these comment pyramids. Is this a sign that Egypt will qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
