To be honest, all of that whining sounds like sour grapes. Yes, the FIFA is exceptionally corrupt, but all of that has been known for years, and it has been written about and documented extensively. I support this newly found investigative spirit regarding FIFA of the British mainstream press, but they are a bit late to the game. Everyone knew at the latest when Blatter announced that the awarding for the 2022 WC would happen at the same time of the 2018 WC that there would be mind-boggling corruption happening. And besides, it's not like Blatter's predecessor wasn't legendarily
corrupt also, and nobody seems to have been bothered.
