lol at the mental picture of a bunch of ululating kooks rolling into a city of opulence in their busted Toyota Tundras. It'll be just like that time I crashed a confirmation party at Medinah Country Club, but with less ululating.

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

Until the 7-1 Maracanazo II Germany put up against Brazil last year, I'd never seen a home, World Cup crowd so stunned and saddened by a World Cup game outcome as on that day when Italy opened up the floodgates near stoppage time in that 2nd extratime in that 2006 semifinal.

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

Is there a way soccer can work in that once-a-game-gorilla that we championed for in future NFL rule changes?

We do need more shenanigans in sports.

The term is actually Mineirazo.

I think Soccer needs to eliminate the off-sides rule and that will open up scoring and help boost American Interest.

Soccer has like 5 rules and you want to eliminate one of them?

No. Doesn't offsides promote action by pulling defenses out into action, ever tilting the field back & forth, instead of guys standing like a wall in the box all game?

That would make it less high scoring as defences would virtually be standing on the goal line as a striker would always be virtually standing in the oppositions box all the time which would lead to high punts up the field and ruin the passing aspect.

Well, it turns out he was right.

Didn't take a rocket scientist to make the statement Garber did. Anyone not taking a FIFA bribe could see Qatar was going to be a :censored:show.

So where to for 2022?

I say USA with a couple opening games in Canada.

The U.S. doesn't need Canada.

We would have it already if FIFA didn't like shiny new stadiums (or plans for them) and technology that doesn't exist.

FIFA won't allow a joint bid between two large countries, especially when one only hosts a few games.

Is Canada considered a "large" country? Do they base that on population or geography?

They base it on the largest bribes.

Well, they're in the G7. A dual France-Germany bid would probably be frowned upon for more or less the same reason.
