Australia or USA. Tricky one.

Australia "wins" by 51-49. Would be nice to see something new.


Qatar's result =

who knows, all I know is his ranting is making Australians look like complete twits because people keep thinking he is Aussie

he called me a maggot for thinking the USA had a good bid, so I just have him as a troll - his posts have no rationale or reasoning, just baits to get attention

Australia!

USA, Japan and Korea hosted too recent games.

Qatar is definetly not ready.

I would love to se China hosting the games, but maybe in 2030.

My vote goes to Australia! But they need to get rid of the cricket stadiums.

I'm going to say, South Korea or Japan.

We haven't had a single issue over their bids on this forums and quite frankly every Qatari, Australian(including me) and American has been a dick to each other, and based on that I'm not sure any of us deserve.

If not GO AUSTRALIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


*not well, I want Australia just people on this forum are being big dicks.

So is that what you and other Qatari's are hoping for, that the Exco put greed before the Game?
Is it that Qatar knows it has a negative bid and is aggressively exploiting the negative because it knows that if it were truly for the benefit of FIFA and Soccer like the other bids it wouldn't go anywhere?

Qatar: exploit the greed of FIFA exco to deliver the WC to a Sheik whom wants to be remembered in the style of Alexander the Great and Suleiman the Magnificent. What a waste of a nations wealth and resources, Qatar spending $45 billion + on the world cup is akin to trying to justify an Army Tank for your grocery shopping.

This is my favorite,
Quote:
"Qatar - is being attacked in a ''hidden war'', the country's FIFA vice-president and Asian soccer supremo Mohammed Bin Hamman claimed yesterday.

In an open letter to ''sons, colleagues and friends of the Qatar bid'' issued on his personal website, Bin Hamman told supporters: ''I did warn you that your noble cause to host the World Cup 2022 will face some unethical resistance … You should expect more of this hidden war against your bid and you should not exclude that the worse [sic] part of it may be yet to come.'''
The unethical screaming about unethical behaviour. Noble cause ha, got to love the colourful language. No hidden war just legitimate questions that may just happen to be uncomfortable to hear. The labour issue is very serious and If Qatar's bid wins "god forbid" the international mircoscope will hang over Qatar and FIFA for another 12 years asking the same questions louder and louder. MBH, where there is smoke there is fire, this one seems to be an inferno. No mudslinging with the other 2022 bids and they are all strong.


All other bids: Offer FIFA safe, legitimate cities which the World Cup can be hosted in the very format it has evolved and be tailor made for.

Yeah RIIIIGHT.

The only reason Qatar got so many votes was due to the Middle Eastern support given.

Check out this thread made just for this poll, and i guess most people voted without posting in either threads.

Due to multiple accounts being created, and automatically being detected, in some cases up to 12 accounts, votes in future rounds will be

1. Public
2. Require a post count of over 100
3. Will not allow responses, if possible.

All forumers who have created multiple accounts will be banned.

There is no correct percentage, your figures are invalid.

The Arabian Gulf Cup of Nations is being hosted in a very insecure unsafe environment (YEMEN). Almost everyone in the stands is Yemeni.

why use "your" ? I dont have fake accounts, unlike you.

No, If Australia had 2022 people will only "COME to PLAY"

then again, if Qatar hosted it we would "EXPECT AMAZEMENT".

Having not heard much about Qatar itself I won't argue the point of who is greater (or who has better slogans) but whatever the result good luck to 'em. I know Australia will produce yet another memorable world sporting event.
