Some sort of re-vote on the tainted tallies that awarded FIFA World Cups in 2018 and 2022 to Russia and (most stunningly, most notoriously, most annoyingly) Qatar still seems unlikely.

Even with the dizzying wave of corruption charges that swept over world soccer's power brokers on Wednesday, the World Cup in Russia would seem impossible to dislodge at this point.

Not many people would connect Hearts from the Scottish Premier League and Qatar the hosts of the 2022 World Cup, but Dave Mackay who passed away this week at the age of 80 would be that connection. He started his career for the Edinburgh team and ended his football career life as national coach of Qatar some 42 years later.

FIFA's recent announcement that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will take place in November/December just undermines what everyone who lives outside of FIFA headquarters knows – that the World Cup never should have been awarded to Qatar in the first place. At this point, the apparent corruption, miscalculations, lack of commonsense judgment, and all-around bloated, cartoonish villainy surrounding FIFA and its Qatar World Cup is so ridiculous that it hardly matters anymore what time of year the tournament takes place.

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).
