Quatards go down the drain



December 02, 2010 – Comments (9)

Quatar is the biggest idiot this week, for winning the right to throw away $54 billion building stadiums and dismantling them - all that to let several teams of 22 men kick the ball for 90 minutes in year 2022. 

Quatar must know the secret - how to concentrate the greatest amount of money in the smallest volume, and what constitutes the infrastructure of a soccer field. According to my calculation, $54 billion would be enough to cover a soccer field with a layer of gold 1-inch thick. 

"Qatar, which has promised to overcome heat of up to 130 degrees with air conditioned outdoor stadiums, led on every round of balloting that initially included AustraliaJapan and South Korea. The lowest vote-getter was eliminated after each round until only the U.S. and Qatar remained. Qatar won the final vote 14-8. 

"Basically, oil and natural gas won today. This was not about merit, this was about money," former U.S. national team star Eric Wynalda said in a telephone interview with the Associated Press. Qatar "is a country that is really going to struggle to host this event. A successful World Cup would mean the attendance would be twice the population....

Qatar, which has never even qualified for a World Cup, used its 30-minute presentation to underline how the tournament could unify a region ravaged by conflict. Presenters also promised to dismantle the stadiums built for the tournament and give them to needy countries.

The nation promised to spend $50 billion on infrastructure upgrades and $4 billion to build nine stadiums and renovate three others. One advantage of the having the tournament in a small country: The stadiums will all be within an hour of each other.  ""

I am glad they won this one. Hosting big sporting events is a really bad idea.

No allusions to David in Quatar. I just liked the term he coined.

You (and David) see them as Quatards.  FIFA sees them as oil sheiks.

I think that David would get a good chuckle knowing that he is a Quatard.

Quatards = monetary units owned by Retards from Quatar, earmarked for funny projects that appeal to said Retards, such as conditioning outdoor stadiums,or building stadiums and dismantling them.

Riyals = monetary unit owned by someone based in Quatar, and earmarked for consumption or investment. A Riyal owned by a Retard becomes a Quatard. Otherwise, it continues in its capacity as a Riyal.

ROFL. Nice post, zloj.  I missed this the other day when I was travelling to and from Quatar with the Retards.

I might have something to say about this later in the week.
