Does this come as any surprise? Brazil isn't ready to host this years tournament yet and there is real doubt that one of the stadiums will ever be finished. The IOC has been considering an emergency move of the 16 olympics to London because Brazil can't handle it.

Qatar was always a mistake, they will have to put the tournament close to christmas which will seriously **** with almost every national and international club tournament schedule. They use slave labor to build facilities and there WILL be scandals when fans are arrested for being drunk, for not wearing enough clothes and for generally doing what fans do. I don't know how big a bribe they used, but it must have been pretty enormous.
