Now lets see..the players - most of wich considered "student players" get..NOTHING for playing..the countries that host those events "are considered lucky to have us" and a "non-profit organisation" that gets all the money and none of the responsibility..have i missed something here?
To this day, I am _baffled_ by a country allowing a company that manages soccer (or football, or futbol, whatever it is you degenerates call it) to have their very own judicial court! Imagine if you snuck an extra refill for your drink at McDonalds, and then were taken in front of Ronald McDonald to be given a 20-year sentence; this sort of stupid shit would *never fly* with any other company, and yet they gave the ever-corrupt FIFA this kind of legal power. It's insane!
As an American, the word soccer makes me cringe. Its so obviously been FOOTBALL since I was old enough to think. Gridiron football should have been called Gridiron. I mean even the marketing terms behind a word like The Grid would have been beloved by the NFL. There's a reason they call their football, footy and the word foot is far from anything involving gridiron... Except for what, field goals?
Comedian John Oliver from (HBO). Even Trump said. You got to go!
You know the secret of the a opportunist demagogue is pretending to be as stupid as your audience.... FOOL !!
And many imagine being as smart as such stupid arrogant comedian.
----Shame on you... !
So if you are in search of an objective means of measuring intelligence, you will be forced to let the brain go. The answer may be in psychometry ..... Brain? Yes!!! Looser.
----You are Nothing, you are a FOOL and you are a waste of time!!
CAREFUL talking about other people from different Countries.
Seal the doors of your own mouth.
But I say to you: you have many people who is angry with you. Therefore you shall be guilty before Justice of Court.
I find it amusing how people remain silent during the 50 degrees celsius reveal, and react when they hear the fahrenheit conversion, the same happens to me when it's the other way around "10º fahrenheit, well that doesn't sound so bad... wait, that's -12º celsius, damn that's cold!"
I am American and I just want to say something to my fellow Americans.
Why do you call it “soccer” and where did that word even come from?
“Hey we’ve made this new sport with this weird... uh... thing that you run with”
“Let’s call it football cuz you kick it at this one part”
“But that’s already a sport”
“Well then that one can get a new name because this is football now”
I had been watching football games since i was 7 year old, until the world cup 2014, i remember i was watching fans going out of the field at the end of a match , they were passing by a big garbage can , throwing their garabage in the can over a poor woman sitting inside the can , trying to find something to eat. On that day i stopped watching this shit just to have at least some self respect.
Well I love football just like billions of others around the world do and the world cup but someone needs to nuke Fifa for how corrupt they are lol, I also suspect with how big football really is around the world, that reserve fund of a billion is just a drop in the ocena to what it really is.
As for the religion aspect of football, I can agree with that, in many countries like Italy and Brazil, when the world cup is one and the teams are playing in a big game, the country comes to a stand still, it's quite shocking how many people take time off work when a big game is on lol, the passion in football is very high and I've never seen that in any other sport.
Ooh, those punchlines in the end! 😆
Even though you Americans might not like “soccer” much, the rest of the world is grateful for your FBI, who’s corruption investigations led to the eventual dawnfall of Sepp Blatter and his minions.
Fitting you won the bid recently, for the World Cup after Qatar - it’s a big THANK YOU (besides being the best bid, in terms of infrastructure, existing stadiums that will also be used afterwards!) I think most fans agree that bids should be judged on the merits of sustainability and economic feasibility - not a way for corrupt regimes to spend their countries wealth, just to gain some international prestige.
Ywah some one should do something about employment laws in The Arab vulf countries the workers are trapped with no rights US should recommend them better laws while they are fucking daily at oil fields
