The Homophobic World Cup 2022
#41
The only way FIFA will ever change is if sponsors start quitting them.
I really hope this is the start of this. This World Cup is a disgrace. Guardian today reporting that the security they have employed are on 35p an hour. In one of the richest countries on earth.

I love football and adore the big international competitions, often sourcing beers from the various countries competing to enjoy whilst watching random games. This year, however, the whole tournament is haunted by the spectre of those thousands of migrant workers who have died in order to build football stadiums in a desert. 2000 dead Nepalese men, 2000 grieving families for something that could have been held in countless other countries save for one very important factor…the ability to stuff millions of dollars into the pockets of corrupt and contemptuous men.

The whole thing stinks and I hate feeling powerless. Even worse, I hate that the only protest I feel I can make is to disengage with the tournament which still leaves FIFA executives with their bribes, but I lose out on the genuine enjoyment of an international tournament. Sport should be about celebration and all of this is just very, very sad.

According to FIFA it's racist to make this suggestion.



I mean this absolutely seem like authentic English fans to me...

I’ve got the feeling for many years that FIFA and UEFA are really not progressive organisations, or supportive of human rights. Old school doesn’t remotely cover it.

So why has this only come to attention now the World Cup’s being held in Qatar?? Is money really the only thing football is interested in??

Oh dear.  Come on, John.  No one really believes it was real money sweetie.

And even if it was real money, then it was his money to shred.  People waste money on rubbish all the time and he's certainly brought plenty of publicity to this issue either way.

I don't know about the Bank of England (was it £ notes?), but when it comes to Federal Reserve Bank notes it is illegal to mutilate or destroy such notes (at least within the U.S. it is).

I'm guessing here, but Federal Reserve Bank notes are the property of the Federal Reserve Bank, not you.  What is yours is the claim to wealth that those banknotes represent, but the medium itself belongs to them.

So its illegal to tear up a banknote but fine to own a sub machine gun.
Yay! Freedom !!!

Doh! FIFA is only interested in making money for FIFA. End of.

Because this is the first time (in the modern era) where the event has been awarded to a country openly evil on human rights.

There is no 'football reason' at all to award it to Qatar.
They're not a footballing nation. There's no evidence the sport is even growing in popularity there.
They had no infrastructure.
The climate is not conductive to football.
The laws are not welcoming to football fans.

I actually struggle to see why they (Qatar) wanted it?
Unless its just a one-upmanship game vs other Arab states.
They'll lose a fortune on it and the way they're behaving, its not exactly selling Qatar as a lovely holiday destination

We will see later, but its looking increasingly likely that England, and I assume the other teams who said they would, will abandon plans to wear a captains rainbow armband.. as FIFA has threatened them with a yellow card (OH NO NOT A YELLOW CARD!)

LGBTQ (if you can't say it with the same cadence as scooby-dooby-doo it's just not worth it!)

That was however one of the bleakest things I've ever watched.  Whether it was real money or not the symbolism between wasteful destruction and what we value is hard to miss, even when it's dressed up as an international sporting event or some sort of post-apocalyptic car wash shammy.

I have noticed a lot of the adidas kit for sale on their website has rainbow colours integrated into it - albeit subtly - such as the 'Travel' hoodie & the 'Anthem' jacket...

I'm not sure if this is just 'supporters' kit, or whether the actual players will be wearing the same, but certainly some countries such as Germany, Spain, Argentina have them incorporated.

Confirmed. Arm bands abandoned.


World Cup hosted in country where they execute people for being gay.

England says 'oh thats not nice, but we'll still go and wear these rainbow armbands to say we actually like the gays'

FIFA says 'don't do that'

England says 'OK then we won't'


Pathetic.

I take it this applies to Wales too.

It just shows how superficial the FA's support was from the outset - basically, "we'll stand by you until it becomes inconvenient for us at which point we'll drop you in an instant". Well, thanks for that, England.

(And Wales, Denmark, Belgium and all the other virtue-signalling Football Associations that are happy to promote human rights as long as it doesn't involve facing any consequences.)
