    One of the reasons I wanted to see an NIT WC tournament in the US last year, aside from the unusual number of big-name teams that failed to qualify, was that it could be used as a springboard for even teams that do qualify in 2022 to boycott the tournament and hold a competing event (except not really competing in terms of time, as it would be held in summer).

    If we started cancelling sporting events because they were won by bribery we would also have to cancel this years IAAF championships scheduled for Qatar and the 2020 Japanese Olympics. I'm not saying I disagree with that stance, but I consider it unlikley...

    Well lets just cancel it on the actual verifiable slave labor, thats probably a good enough reason too.

    I didn't know BigSoccer moderators could take the World Cup from Qatar or any other nation and give it to another?!

    This Wednesday (07/17/19) is the draw for the Asian groups in the Second Round of their qualifiers, the CONMEBOL order of fixtures, and the inter-continental playoff rivals.

    The last one is quite interesting to us.

    That whole thing is just gaslighting. Of course they got it through bribery. They also got the IAAF championships through bribery. I can post the details if anybody is google deficient as I've followed it quite closely. They haven't been cleared. They are also not in any way committed to gender equality or worker rights. The whole thing is just as fanciful as magic floating clouds providing shade.

    Foreign builders go on strike. Apparently don't want to break their necks for $6 per day anymore.

    Maybe they'll get rounded up and deported now.
