View Full Version : Does FIFA actually believe in "Fair Play"?

Obviously not, after originally handing the only federation not to have a direct qualification spot, a spot into the World Cup, unanimously I might add. Seven months later CONMEBOL - the federation for South America, along with it's buddy UEFA decide that they should give into the South American whinging - or is it the drug cartels threatening!!! - and take that full spot back off our federation....

Sepp, Disgusted. UEFA - Get Stuffed. CONMEBOL - Go Snort your Coke. World Game? I think not............

For FIFA to grant Oceania an automatic qualification spot only to later revoke it is a joke, but to be fair, on merit, we probably didn't deserve on in the first place.

Maybe if FIFA stopped changing the rule every five minutes.......

Obviously a team that has beaten France, Brazil and England in the last two years isn't worthy of a World Cup slot, or at least be given the chance for the Federation to do so.....

*Is a soccer fan, but still doesn't know what they're talking about*

Are you talking about Australia (well yeah, Oceania, whatever) not getting a free ticket to the world soccer championship or something??

Exactly, shows how weak most of the federations are in FIFA, the South American Federation (CONMEBOL) whinges and UEFA (Europe) throws a proposal to take away the DQ spot of Oceania to make it to play off against, most likely a CONMEBOL team. Don't understand why they have the need to allow 5 of their 10 teams to be able to qualify for the World Cup, when it's nowhere near as much in all of the other federations.......

Shows what power UEFA and CONMEBOL really wield, who's really in control of the World Game???????????
