I heard one interesting suggestion from a former FIFA executive on German tv (Tognoni) who said that when the criteria for being allowed into the awarding selection are high enough so that everyone who makes it to this stage can hold the World Cup (which he said is not that difficult), it should simply be drawn by lot who gets it. That way you could eliminate all the BS. I think I'd agree with that. Spain, Netherlands, England, Russia, etc. - I'm sure they all could have done a great tournament, does it really make that much difference? Just letting luck decide would seem more fair than it is now to me.
