At the risk of sounding cynical, I wonder how much that cost them.

Qatar? Really? Do they even have room for 9 stadiums? Do we really want to be running around 118 degree desert in June? How Many Germans, French, Brit's etc, are really excited about visiting the Middle East? I though Mussolini was angry about S. Africa! Hope he wasn't paying attention to this one.

Agreed, I did not expect them to come out victorious.

the english can't help but ruin their own chances - the bbc panorama program the week the decision was being made is just typical of the English media coverage being against the national interest

Russia is actually an interesting choice. I have been out of sorts lately so haven't seen where they are location the stadiums (probably around Moscow). I can't imagine they will spread them out all over the country. Russia does have some good stadiums and the Russia vs whomever games are going to be CRAZY - aka crazy Russian Fans all over the place. I think fan violence might be an issue, but we shall see.

And yes, Qatar is another WTF moment. High-heat-areas are NOT GOOD for sports in general. You'll see a lot of dehydrated players getting injured.

EDIT: I just asked a friend 'What do you call people from Qatar? (America...Americans, etc).' She responded 'Qatar Heroes?'....lol

I read that it will be 15 cities of the European side Russia, or that´s what Putin said in an interview. We´ll see what cities will be among those 15 in a couple of years´time, I guess.

Just a note for those that object to Qatar or any other 'hot' climate, this is the WORLD cup. This means that players of the tourney should be able to operate in any environmental condition, hot or otherwise.

If you can't, then you are not much of a professional as an athlete.

Olympic competitors have to encounter all sorts of weather, and we have even had an 'altitude' Olympics in Mexico City.

I might also remind people that Qatar is not, in fact, a 'hot' environment. It's a desert, where temps fluctuate with the activity of the sun. It will get quite cold at night, so the daytime 'heat' is not really an issue.

What would you be saying if the WC was hosted in a tropical city, like Denpassar.....or Rio Di Janero?

Brazillian soccer players are the best in the world, and they don't seem to have issues with playing and winning in cold weather. They play many of their rep matches in Brazil's 'wet' season, and are still the best in the world.

Point taken?
Llamas are bigger than frogs.:cool:
