Can we just encourage ISIS to invade Qatar?

Wow really? That has to be the worst comment I've ever seen on this board.

It's a all a moot point, it's only a matter of time before the entire middle-east is embroiled in a total war sectarian conflict. The World Cup will never be played Qatar....

Would you prefer the slave rebellion? ISIS would likely be a less bloody form of regime change, and would conveniently hold both the Saudi's and Iranian's collective feet to the fire. If we need bases, we still have Kuwait and Bahrain.

Win win from a US perspective.

Most WC finals end in 0-0 and a penalty shoot out, so to be fair, all other WC´s were also "Monumental Disasters"

In the USA we have stadiums ready made for the World Cup. There are dozens of Soccer stadiums and if we need larger crowds NFL stadiums vacant in the summer ready for games.

That's why the US was the best candidate to replace Qatar. We could literally host a tournament every summer on short notice and fill 60,000 seats. But we didn't bribe anyone, and we'll have to wait for 2026.

Please amuse us and quote your sources for this nugget if information which contradicts the true results of the world cup.

Yeah... that's it.

All those 0-0 final scores

Unless he is counting the last two that were goalless after 90?? Those, IMO, were the best ones.

He said:

It's happened once, ever. Somewhat Ironically in 1994 when the US hosted.

But yes, I agree those were some of the best games. Granted the Dutch loss in South Africa was also the most painful, lol.

Yes because ISIS's brand of torture, murder, and downright barbarism have been so bloodless are so much better for the people of Qatar than the status quo...

Or the US for that matter seeing as Qatar is a short rocket ride away from Bahrain.

1990 1-0

1994 0-0

2006 1-1

2010 1-0

2014 1-0

I stand corrected, so make the goals smaller and make the goalie's equipment bigger, only way to keep the crazy scoring down. :)

You're missing quite a few. How about 3-0 in '98? or 2-0 in '02? Go back much further and you'll see the shackles off.

In 20 World Cup Finals, a total of 71 goals have been scored, divide that by 20 games, and you get an average of 3.55 goals per game. Far from the 0-0 bore that "most" World Cup Finals are, which has only happened once in 20 games. Once.

Please at least do you research before trying to trash soccer as a whole.

Triple the goal size, but add a second goalie. Now we're talking.

Usually the teams in the finals have great defenses. Teams giving up 3 goals a game are typically weeded out.

That, and finals of any kind in soccer are usually highly nervous, tactical encounters. And refs are usually reluctant to make calls that could swing a game and either call everything a foul or never draw cards (except for Argentina 90)

And who says a 0-0 can't be a good game? Italy's semifinal vs. Germany in 2006 is widely regarded as one of the best games of this past decade, and it was 0-0 until the 119' minute

If you enslave your co-regilionists, using your religion as a pretext for doing so, you've earned all the torture, murder, and barbarity you could ever hope to receive on the temporal plane.

And don't think Allah is going to look too :censored: ing kindly on that crap either.

And our anti-missile systems can stop anything ISIS has access to at the moment.

So what you're saying is that being enslaved, brutalized, terrorized and massacred by one group of religious whack jobs is better than being enslaved by another group... Got it.

Yeah, I think it's probably best just to back away from the whole thing. Doubling down on a flat attempt at humor isn't often the best idea.
