WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says FIFA made the "wrong decision" in awarding the 2022 World Cup to Qatar over the United States.
The U.S. Soccer Federation spent millions of dollars on its bid. Former President Bill Clinton was highly involved in the process and participated in the closing presentation.

What an asshole. Sheesh.
Actually, it sounds as if a mother is training a son to be afraid of competition and sport, and perhaps it would be a good thing for her to crouch deeper into a foxhole.
Off topic to your post in a way, but the Euros use relegation in their leagues, I think the same system would benefit American sports...every one of them. Too many teams would rather earn money than win (Clippers, Pirates, and Royals anyone?) and thus refuse to field a competitive team.
I was thinking that it would be cool if we had this in College Football.
Every year you would have Tiers of 13 teams (to allow for 6 home and 6 away games) where each team plays the other teams in their tier. So you would have a “Premier” College Tier with say, Auburn, Oregon, TCU.....(the best 13 teams). At the end the best team is the National Champion, and the worst teams fall to the next level in the following season, and the best teams from the lower division get promoted. I think it would be cool, but of course it would never happen.
That’s why I never understood people when they say soccer is a Commie sport.
It’s the NFL that’s Communist, every team gets the same cut of TV revenue no matter how much they suck, and the worst teams get the better draft picks. The NFL wants parity.
This issue is as close as Obama will ever get to protecting our national security. Pathetic!
It’s not about World Cups lost, but World Cups saved or created.
“a Grand Theft Auto game without the reset button.”
My sons have seen things/been places that many people will never see in their lifetimes when we backpack; it certainly isn’t about that. They play soccer (which is competition), but there is no reason for them to think US football is any more a sport than Wrestlemania.
So says a boring pussy. Sorry to have hit your hot button.
Incometent loser can’t even arrange to have the International kickball tournament here.
With everything going on here and then our problems with North Korea and Iran he’s whining about this?? This is beyond insanity.
Did I really need to post Sarcasm tags?
