Very well, the FIFA is never without at least some controversy, but of course since its membership ranges the globe, and that means it involves everyone, practically all human cultures that is. A brief time ago, I was discussing this problem with an international sports blogger in London England, and this individual asked me my thoughts on this topic. Particularly he asks me to debate this question: Watch FIFA World Cup 2018 Online
“Do the US, English and Australian FA’s have reliable grounds for taking TIMORE to court over the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups of and/or they simply bad losers? inches
Well, if the corruption (bribes, kickbacks) charges are correct, then something should be done. Although the timing sure is bad, no-one wants that nation to be annoyed right now, that may cause problems. Some say it provides trouble in the future with terrorist events, and who knows by 2022 there may be too much radiation to even go there. The terrorists do want heading to a huge event, large aircraft (I am assuming from the Intel an A380 will be the target or a completely loaded 747).
One might ask is it worth fighting? And a huge court battle will be a problem, as the Muslim gentlemen no longer like being called liars even though they often hold back true and deal with information during negotiations. Even more kick-backs are standard business in the Arab world, so, expect it while doing business with them. If you offer – they will ask. The problem here is the popularity of the people bribes, not the offerer. Dragging it all out in court, thus the media too, will not win friends or influence people and it will throw a pitching wedge in peace between Western and Middle East.
A few not forget the problems with Sunni and shia – or the problems in Egypt, or how this all is linked to Middle Far eastern play for power, fiefdoms – also the Iranian component to all this. The US needs Qatar friendly, they’d be silly to sue.
With all the Russian 2018, I’d let that go and just call it up water under the bridge, but the 2022 is an important concern. Maybe that needs to be re-thought out. That could open a hornets’ nest; still, we desire a fair world as it pertains to these things. It kind of reminds me of all the Non-sense that goes on behind sealed doors at the ALGUN with regards to the IAEA and the Reliability Council there.
Indeed, a lot all calm down and think on this for some time, consider the ramifications involved and the reality of what it takes to all get along in the world. We have to work these things out, and skip the name calling or transferring FIFA members through the mud, even if they are to blame at times. Please consider all this and think on it.
