Hehe, Yeah, I wouldn't be suprised if they'd actually filed corruption charges against you for trying to bribe them with 2 million dollars... :lol:

Try a billion or two. :roll:

It's silly and ironic because FIFA's execs could become SO much richer in a shady grey legal zone if they hosted the World Cup in the USA or Western Europe. But they went for full on bribery on the side, which is amusing considering they could have had the golden goose in the USA probably.

Blatter quits, cue the conspiracy. Probably too much pressure.

They were already milking Europe with the European tournaments every 4 years. And then there's their partnership with UEFA. So we are being milked consistently.

Or the USA/Europeans threatened to scandalize/boycott FIFA even further. Maybe even throw him in jail.

So is that Jordanian Prince still around? :)

So there is a god from time to time. Fancy that.

Edit:
Now John Oliver has to live up to his promises. But I'd say the hard part has been done.

Maybe they can yank the cup from Qatar and save us all some trouble.

UEFA pretty much said, "boycott the Russian WC, make own cup with select South American nations invited." In other words, if UEFA did that the 'real' World Cup would be a second rate cup. FIFA simply couldn't take that. And while I am wholly on UEFA's side, such a split would be disastrous to football in general.

Would it be even worse than things already are though? I'm not sure at this point. The rot is set rather deeply.
