2022 World Cup in Dec/Jan or games in Kuwait or Oman?!?!?

Talk about US Leagues and the US National team here.

I'm about ready to give up on the World Cup due to the inability of FIFA to actually put together a fair competition. The 'human element' of the 2010 campaign that cost us goals, and almost had us not making it out of the group stage...

To reschedule the tournament by 6 months - which direction they haven't decided so it could be 2022 or 2023 is wrong!

If you can't host the games just like everyone else, don't bid. The 'impressive cooling technology' that was a cornerstone to their bid wouldn't play as much of a role. Now they're talking about letting other countries host games - Qatar won it on hosting the smallest footprint possible - where you could see 2 games a day!?!? Now you want to allow other countries to host?!?!? WHAT PART OF JOINT BID DID YOU NOT PUT FORTH???? The USA bid was 'this is what we offer, we're not going to change things after winning' but it seems that 'changes' are to be expected now?!?!?

Sepp Bladder is a very disgusting humanoid from his gay remarks to wasting USA Bid's time and now wanting to change the WC to December/January.

Phuq you, FIFA.

They'd certainly let you, I'm sure of that. However I'm also sure you couldn't afford it.

"I definitely support playing in winter here [Middle East] when the climate is appropriate," said Blatter.

fuck Blatter.

this was a huge middle finger to the US - not USSF. and while i think the digit is appropriate (directed at our gov't, not our people, and not ECS or SSFC), i'm still very bittter about this
