That's just absurd, if anything, this should have played out like Seoul's 1988 Olympics bid where Pyongyang wanted to co-host. In this case it would be North Korea wanting to co-host some matches in a joint bid (which of course never happened, however I wouldn't be surprised if NK wanted to co-host AFTER South Korea wins the right to host the 2022 WC, assuming of course they do).

The eventual fallout would be NK simply boycotting the 2022 WC and staging it's own event as a distraction. But then again, another Korean War could happen well before then and the eventual fate of NK decided once and for all.
Agreed. I feel such appeals are shamelessly manipulative and shallow that we have seen in other IOC/FIFA presentations in matters that nations should be be more then willing to do for a higher principle then winning a tournament. Political liberalization (2008 China), averting war (South Korea), or bringing "West-Islamic world together" (Qatar, Istanbul) are issues that people from those nations should want from themselves and not be used as emotional blackmail on outsiders.

South Korea used the same lines in 2002 and FIFA actually gave them 2 games to take over to North Korea. I don't believe they've heard back even now except via missile. Qatar's bid is a total sham. Not only is their bid the worst of all time, with so many technical flaws that myself making a Boeing 747 would have less issues to deal with but their whole story is just embarrassing.

Clinton was a disaster IMO. The guy never ceases to make any speech all about himself. The ultimate narcissist always performing on the stage.

Two words come to my mind about the Belgium-Holland bid:

Ethic.
Sympathetic.




Allez Belgique Allez !! Hup Holland Hup !!

The economy and government backing was a big part of Holland/Belgium's bid presentation. Had a whole talk show happening with the two leaders.

We won the World cup in 98, followed by the UEFA Euro victory in 2000 (our second one after 1984) and we were runner-up of the 2006 World Cup ... France is not that bad you know, amigo !

I know I'm opining late on the presentations but oh well.......

I will say, Qatars presentation (even though I didn't understand half of it) was very slick and they hit on the right notes and images. The milf asking "when" is a good touch as well. For 30 minutes I forgot the sweltering heat, the migrant workers, fan pens, and nonsensical logistics.

The hired NYC Madison Ave. PR/AD firm hired should be proud (sincerely).
