    Oh come on, I thought the Europeans were so morally superior and culturally refined when compared to us rubes in the US? I guess they aren’t as great as some folks think they are.Report

    RTod – I’m guessing Scott is referring to Blatter – but it is really a nonsensical statement as he is actually pretty hated world-wide by many soccer enthusiasts for more than just his choices regarding the latest host countries. He is a sexist and vile creature regardless of the fact he is from Switzerland, I guess Scott is just trying to get a lame dig in on Europeans based on the actions of one dude. FAIL.Report

    When you remove the weird non-sequitors from this, what’s left?
    “I would say that they should refrain from sexual activities….We are living in a world of freedom and when the World Cup will be in Qatar, this will be in 2022. And you can see in the Middle East the opening of this culture. It is another culture because it is another religion, but in football we have no boundaries.”

    This sounds like it was translated by Babelfish from dog. My favorite sentence, hands down is, “We are living in a world of freedom and when the World Cup will be in Qatar, this will be in 2022”. To which all I can say is: Indeed, love is a splendid thing and often when it rains the time is 2:45.Report
