I was about to read the book Fifa Maffia who was published last year, guess this will speed up the process a bit :)

Public secret that those WC votes were corrupted as hell. I wonder if they could reverse the bids.

Wonder what the IOC is thinking?

 

That's the thing... Should be very interesting.

 

FIFA was considered to be too big to get in trouble and they acted very cocky.  Both Russia and Qatar spent billions of $$$ for new stadiums.  It will be an economic disaster for these countries if they move World Cup somewhere else.

Cant see either losing their bid. 

I see Qatar losing it...  They moved World Cup to winter time... Right in the middle of regular season.  It causes massive issues for domestic schedule and cable companies who paid billions of dollars to show these games.

Russia might lose it due to extreme movement against European nations and U.S.  US citizens are not safe in Russia.  Russia is one of the most racist places on earth.

I love this. All these isolated crooks that have put themselves above everyone else for the past 2 decades are in handcuffs. At the same time the reaction around the world is incredibly interesting to me.

There was a time when American action was viewed as leadership. Now you are seeing people speak out against the Americans for interfering with World Football, a Sport they consider Americans to be a spectator in. There is an attitude of "let us clean up our own house, stay out of it". Which is a farce because we play Football too and the house has been a mess for 20 years.

Then you have those that think the Americans are overzealous to arrest folks in Switzerland. Some are calling us a bigger threat to freedom than the Russians. It's all rhetoric from anti-Americans that are tired of us doing as we wish in International Politics. 

But shouldn't we all be proud of this? The bad guys are in police custody. This is the justice system working. Everybody knows FIFA has been exploiting their control over the biggest sport in the world. A not for profit organization with over 1.5 billion in cash reserves. 

This is one of those times where people around the world should once again recognize the USA for being a leader. This is what we do, kick ass when others are afraid to.

They also need to look into the labor practices they are apparently using to build the stadiums in Qatar. Hundreds of people have reportedly died there since they started. It's probably more important to hold FIFA accountable for the revenue the US missed out on first though.
