to flesh that out slightly, FIFA received $1.6 billion in sponsorship money for this year's world cup. Now, I don't know how much more an advertising hoarding goes for in Miami as opposed to Manchester or Moscow, but's it would need to be pretty large to be a wildly signifacant factor.

Don't embarrass yourself Coth, he was trolling as you yourself are bordering on. If an American goes into the Russian thread and starts talking unprovoked about the foreign policy, talking about Putins crimes, or the hopeful impending collapse and weakness of Russia then that would be trolling as well. Yet, from Russians we see this old game played all too often in threads Get it?

You Russians here at SSC really need to get over your post cold war U.S. obsession and stop trying to convince yourself and others you with the mythology of Russia being the white knights out to save the world from the "empire".

How on Earth anything in my post has anything with Putin, troll?

Seems like someone still has Cold War propaganda Media, imaging any "bad" things as Putin's actions. Nice to see another zombie .

This is not american thread, get it? Cold War didn't end. USA continue to finance terrorists on N.Caucusus to divide Russia, USA rebuilt Afghan drug production after NATO occupation, NATO still exist (they created new "threat" now - "terrorism". Problem - Reaction - Solution), US Holyshitwood still russophobic, US media - -II-, US education - -II-, american kids still killing "bad Russians" in computer games, americans still associate Russians with "communists", etc. american absurd.

Relax, dude. I was angry on f***in' USA cause they officially declared that they will help Kurdish terrorists in destabilisation of Turkey. If earlier they hided that they are financing them, but now they lost any respect even to the work of criminal politician and openly support terrorists who already bombed important infrastructure many times in Turkey.

(Turkey is becoming more independent. That's why we saw Israel's attack on Turkish aid ship. That's why Turkey voted against sanctions for Iran. That's why Turkey is rebuilding partnership with Russia in any spheres, and more and more). Watch on attempts to destabilise Turkey through terrorist bombings. This is main USA/UK instrument of pressure.

Zombies just don't want to look at situation wider and from another angle.

JimB, these "propaganda books" and sources are mostly "western" (oops)
Never heard about "Great Game"?

Previous "dollar" financial system is dying. But the hooligan can't die calm, without remaining chaos.

Like the video.

What the **** are you banging on about, AILD?

This is a thread about bids to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 and 2022. It is not a forum for you to drone on and on and on about whatever political agenda you have. There's a Skybar for that kind of talk.

Please, if it's not too difficult for you, try to stay on topic.

There's a good lad.

And you are obviously bordering on russophobic racist trolling.

So the handfull of Russians who often troll in threads about the U.S. on SSC are now considered their own race?



I didn't go into geo-political smack talk fest in a sports thread about Russia unlike your fellow Russian jingoist. Not every obnoxious nationalist is worth going into the trench with or you only share in the embarrassment. Learn the lesson Coth.

some of alid's comments were sure not relevant to the topic, but nomarandlee's were far worse racial.



as i said from my point of view - china, like other bric countries, is important for fifa (for sponsors) mainly not because of their large economy, but because of economy is developing. very very large number of new potential customers far more important than slight, but expensive changes in market shares within developed markets.

Oh, please! Get over yourself.

Nothing worse than someone who is forever playing the racist card where it doesn't belong.

AILD came storming on to this thread, spouting reams of political mumbo jumbo that had no place here. In the circumstances, nomarandlee's response was quite restrained.

Ethnicism if you wish, but Racism is a common term for all types of discriminations based on nationality. Be it Chinese or Arabian mod he wouldn't stand that long here with such claims.

Russians are an ethnic group. A specific contingent of Russian SSC members whop happen to troll endlessly don't make their own "race". Why are you not grasping this concept?

It would be far more interesting if you could tell us why an American should be able to go into a sports related thread and talk smack about Russia to the equivalent sad, insecure, bitter display that AILD's did. This is hardly the first thread that Russian trolls have derailed such threads in this one and in other non-related threads. For you to "get it" perhaps you need a mental exercise......

Quote:
Russia has only one way t continue their imperial existing - big war. They are trying to provoke it against Poland, Estonia, Georgia, Ukraine......
Summary for Rusheeple.
U.S. is among rare countries which have potential to remain stabile during collapse of the whole previous financial system, because we have enough high technology to consume and sell, food/water and military nuclear potential to prevent aggression against us.
This is why the 1980 and 2002 Winter Olympics and 1996, 1984 Summer Olympics have already been ours.
This is the main reason why FIFA must 2022 to USA.
If AILD has wrote such gibberish instead you would ask the hell his delusional trolling problem was? Such an American would be a bitter insecure wanker embarrassing themselves and I assure you when Russians, and their misguided fellow nationalist who back them, do it you look no less pathetic.

So, Gerald Celente or David Icke, for example, are also Russian trolls if they don't accept US terrorist policy?

Ok, I was wrong writing political things in sport thread, but it was done because I was sick of US "officials" about Kurdish terrorists support, and it doesn't change anything I said.

Mod can easily delete comments.

Please end all discussions re: race.

Sensitive political discussions will also result in an infraction, and so too will replies to political posts.

Accusations of racism will result in an infraction and will be taken very seriously.
