    The USA does not deserve to host another World Cup so soon after 1994. If they get it, they should at least have to still qualify for it. I’m sick of all this special treatment the usa gets.

    It’s up to the rest of us to fight to ensure that the World Cup goes to a more deserving country

    In the end it is all about the money and FIFA knows it can make a ton of money here in the US.
