Why are DysenteryMike, Andreas and X sooooo obsessively targeted on the US bid?

BECAUSE #1 - they have no lives outside of this board and soccer; and #2 - they ARE AFRAID and know USA 2022 is the ONLY thing in Australia's way...and will be there to send 2026 to OZ or CHINA!!

That's why!! Oz got our support for 2026. By then. maybe you'll have 28 million people to fill those seats!!

lol @ the hate for the US.

I'm amazed by the hostility shown here towards the US. I understand people love to hate the US but is it something people get off of to when they take shots at the US? I honestly didn't know the US is bidding to host the world cup until I saw this thread (neither does 99% of our population) because an overwhelming majority of us don't even care for it. I suggest you guys relax and don't hurt yourselves over this and most importantly don't lose sleep fuming over the internet. regardless of the outcome chances are most of us wouldn't care either way. so relax guys. relax!

Well, the schizo-nuts here like DysenteryDike and X (notice how clever their noms de plumes are) are just wetting themselves over a strong US bid. I mean how can a 25 million country take on a 310-million plus nation??

Is there any chance we can actually discuss the topic here...?

And is it also possible not to make homophobic statements?

Strong? Try bankrupt ex host who doesn't have a hope in hell, who's currently turning to banana republic strategies of printing money, while nations such as Australia have the best performing developed economy on the planet and Qatar is the richest nation on the planet per capita. I say best of luck to you selling that

Isn't it time you went to school? Typing in bigger font only makes you more of an idiot. Best of luck whenever your country can actually host anything.

Wow, that's good to know, thanks. The US bid is great and MysteryMike's silly YouTube videos do nothing to change that, but 1994 plus statements like these quoted above only strengthen my belief that it's too soon for the US to host again.

I completely agree with you. we don't deserve to host the world cup. like I said, no one know we are even bidding to host it. mainly because most Americans have no interest (even worse no respect) for the game itself. Soccer is something people look at funny. it's considered a women sport. so chances are most would not take it seriously. back in 1994, when we hosted the world cup, over 3/4th of the American public did not know a game was going on and the US was hosting the world cup in it's soil. just think about that. the country is too big to pay attention to soccer. so much has changed since then but not to a point where you can say soccer is a sport America watches let alone loves. I'm a soccer fan but we still have a long way to go and others who love and respect the game should get a shot at hosting it, not us.


with that said, did I read a post about an Australian comparing the US economy to Australia's? is this a joke?

lol, even the state I live in (on it's own, without being included with the country) has a bigger economy than Australia's. and I love Australia. this is what happens when people speak on a subject they do not understand. enough with these pathetic arguments.

some people really need to get a life.

don't you find it funny how we look at things vs how the rest of the world does?

I mean, people are actually spending time on the internet opposing this supposedly "bid" that I read today that in fact most of us don't even know about. how about that for a perspective.

-sigh-

There are 2 solid arguments for why the USA shouldn't host the 2022 World Cup and those are the fact that it has already hosted a World Cup as recently as 1994 and also indeed the relative disinterest there is in America for the tournament anyway. Quality of stadiums, attendance, organisation or economics are not an issue.

Those are not solid arguments. In 2022, it would have been 28 years since the US hosted the World Cup. And considering the fact that the US has lots of different nationalities in it (not just Americans who's enthusiasm about the sport is growing), there will be no lack of atmosphere.
