Going to Qatar for the World Cup is a travesty and everyone should boycott the tournament like Italy.

/It was not because they played like ass
//IT WAS NOT!
///How the fark do you lose to North Macedonia?!?

So he's saying LGBTQ people are going to be safe and welcome there but if you're holding a flag they can't guarantee your safety... Got it.

Qatar 2022 is less bad than Russia 2022, but not Russia 2018, maybe.

Give the ball away 2 yds outside the penalty area will do it.

the stadiums in Russia weren't built by slaves, and they were able to play the tournament in the summer like they are supposed to

So they're saying that everyone is welcome, but by "everyone" they mean "everyone who is willing to ignore all the racist, misogynistic, imperialistic and anti-modern viewpoints our government imposes"? Sounds like a good time.

Has Budweiser stepped in to change the rules on alcohol at the stadiums yet, or did I miss that part?

Let's just say every country will be doing make up drinking at the North American WC in 26.

Great, now I don't know who to root for - the oppressive regime or Budweiser. I guess it doesn't matter who wins because we all lose.

But good on FIFA for staying bought.

I LOL'd at the compromise of drinking Bud Light because it's less APV. But on the bright side no Russian hooligans

No major sporting events should be given to Middle East countries until they step out of the 1900s' 1800's 1700's 1600's, look I don't even know what century they are in but they treat women and gay people like sh*t.

Rampant financial corruption, wage slavery, and no alcohol?  So what?

Openly admitting your sexual preference?  WORST THING EVER.

I hope a bunch of the players wear some sort of rainbow pattern/patch/socks/whatever just as an FU to the cavemen who run that place.

Isn't that a terraforming tech in one of the space 4X games?

Does anyone seriously think Qatar was going to not do this?
