    It's their own fault for annihilating their native populations.

    Not even this stake through the FIFA heart will have a negative effect on their (and Qatar's) greed and corruption.

    This has all been a joke from the start. The only way the event gets pulled from Qatar is at the very last minute if the TV broadcasters come to believe that the event just won't happen (thus damaging their investment and triggering whatever rights they may have under their contracts). That's a long time to come.

    Unfortunately for FIFA most of the surrounding countries don't like Qatar.

    Seems a bit too late in the game now to be considering such a major formatting change as this one.

    EDIT: I also have to wonder if this is a panic maneuver, caused by fears of Qatar not being able to hit the hotel room target.

    Interestingly hotel rooms was one item (and there weren't many) that Qatar had a good rating on in the technical report when bids were being considered.

    I doubt FIFA has a clause in their contact allowing broadcasters to withdraw their investment if it looks like the event won't happen.

    Old news. That was from 2013. And since then most of the allegations in that article have been shown to be so.

    It’s what set off FIFAgate to begin with. Note that Michael Garcia’s report on this was suppressed bu Sepp Blatter and co.

    Actually the contract has set dates for the competitions. Broadcasters won’t sign any other way.

    That’s why Fox got the next cup at a cut rate without competitive bidding when the Qatar cup got set during The American Football playoff season and championship period for most first divisions in Europe.

    The original contract said July-August.

    What will be interesting is how they get all the matches in a span of 28 days ending on Dec22 without a pile of injuries to the most expensive players on the planet.

    The pile of injuries likely won’t occur in December. They’ll occur the during the last two months of the club season when all of that fixture congestion “debt” comes due. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a CL winner whose core consists of World Cup players who went crashing out of Qatar early.

    We've been waiting too long for the final shoe to drop---the results of the Swiss criminal investigation that has been going on for years, now.

    I don't mean any disrespect, but get over it already.
    The 2022 WC will be in Qatar.
    Close this thread already because you are all wasting your breath.
