That was sarcasm. There is no shortage of reasons to cringe over World Cup 2022, unfathomably still set to take place in Qatar.

Instant replays not the solution after poor weekend of Premier League officiating

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

The case for some sort of instant replay in the Premier League was made by Jose Mourinho on Sunday's surprising appearance on Sky Sports' Goals on Sunday program. Following Kevin Friend's shocking first half performance in Southampton's loss at St Mary's to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, Mourinho's calls for replay seemed perfectly timed.

Unsavory racist incidents plaguing European soccer demand strict response

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

European soccer has a distasteful history of racism from inappropriate comments by high-profile officials, to public displays by fans, to on-field altercations between players. Perhaps more glaring than the incidents themselves is how they no longer seem shocking. A front page featuring prejudiced quotes and incidents of discriminatory behavior seem an inevitability every season.

World Cup

No Confederations Cup for Qatar in 2021

Soccer Politics Blog at related • 0 views

On the heels of the news that the 2022 Men's World Cup in Qatar will be held in the winter, FIFA yesterday announced that Qatar has lost its hosting privileges for the 2021 Confederations Cup. The reason: because summers in Qatar reach an averageof 100ºF (38ºC). This fact is something the entire world has known for YEARS, is the main reason for the 2022World Cup'sswitch to November, and is one of the main reasons the general soccer community was against having the World Cup in Qatar at all (that and the whole "slave laborers"thing).

Concerns about switching World Cup 2022 to winter are overblown

World Cup Buzz at related • 1 view

I don't like the idea of a World Cup in Qatar any more than ... well, any more than about 99 percent of the globe's soccer fans, as far as I can tell.

This apparent shift to a winter event is a tourniquet that stops the bleeding on one wound opened by FIFA's controversial choice; at least we won't remember the 2022 World Cup as the one where some poor player actually bursts into flames on the field.
