Anyone remember when that football news broke that Qatar would be hosting the 2022 World Cup, even though, their team has never ever been close to a World Cup, let alone quite learned how to play the game just yet. When that happened, many a football fan smelt a heat wave of FIFA corruption and today’s breaking news proves just that.
Firstly, World Cup’s are played in June to July, a time when Qatar would host the tournament, but how hot is it in Qatar right now? Only a cool 43 celsius, but did that stop corrupt fired-FIFA officials like Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini from working their corrupt ways in order to push through with a Qatar World Cup in 2022? Erm, no it didn’t.
So, what do we have now? Well, we did have that ludicrous suggestion of water breaks, so that the football players wouldn’t literally die on the pitch in this proposed World Cup from overheating, right? What a joke! Then these Arabs and FIFA fat cats, suggested that they could move the tournament to January, which is a more cooler time in the small country. Yeah right!
As if internationally renowned club teams would interrupt their league seasons to send their players off to play in a World Cup, just because of a nation like Qatar? Give us a f*cking break, man! Should we all continue to cower to the demands of corruption in football and now to that of Muslim nations still, even in the most sacred sport in the world?
“Ich don’t think so!”.
So, Cue >> the Germans (a football nation!)
So, what’s epic in the news today? Well, it’s good news, as German newspaper Bild have released a leaked 430 page report on Monday, which shows fresh corruption proof from Qatar, detailing a £1.6 million payment made to the 10-year-old daughter of a FIFA official, all for the sake of a World Cup in Qatar.
Hell! A ten-year-old daughter of a FIFA official to get £1.6 million just for the sake of Qatar’s World Cup bid. You must be having a laugh, eh?
Gladly the corrupt nation of Qatar can now hopefully kiss that World Cup that they had in mind “goodbye”, and the world of football can rejoice in absolute joy. (Loud Applause)
Michael Garcia wrote the 430 page report and resigned as FIFA’s independent ethics investigator back in 2014, after it was revealed that there was plenty of corruption in Brazil (but at least they’ve won five World Cup’s) and also corruption in the South African World Cup back in 2010, which surely was the most annoying and worst World Cup of all time, due to the Vuvuzela, among it also being a very stale and boring World Cup altogether. Perhaps, they shouldn’t have been allowed to host it either.
Anyways, back to Qatar now, and FIFA never published Garcia’s full report (internal corruption), but an extract of it emerged on Monday night in the German newspaper, which also included that Qatar, “served to undermine the integrity of the bidding process”.
No shit! Really? Not surprising, as in the world of Football, where does Qatar even place on that map? Nowhere! That’s where!
So, there you have it! Amidst the worldwide corruption that’s seemingly everywhere in politics nowadays, not even the sacred game of football is safe anymore.
Let’s just hope that there isn’t a socialist-corrupt and mediocre 48-team World Cup, as was reported earlier this year. Since, it would have to happen over our dead bodies and over the dead bodies of puritan football enthusiasts across the world.
Brainstain, over and out!
