29 thoughts on “Qatar ‘slave state’ unfit for football World Cup

  1. Usually, UK football is played in winter because there are not so many rains, I believe. Also, not so many thunder strikes that may stop the match.

    On a day that it was raining, the Springfield University of US started the basketball match more than a century ago. That is why basketball matches are usually played in summer (indoor) while football matches (outdoor) winter.

    The same applies to horse racing. If racing in summer, the track is muddy and so muddy dangerous to the jockeys. But another problem is that once a muddy track has been ruined, it is hard to fix for the subsequent race day in a week’s time span. This applies to soccer and rugby. Remember that many fields are shared by different codes of footballs. Once the pitch has been ruined by rugby matches, the soccer quality will become much influenced. Artificial grass? Replace all the grasses in all stadiums just for the “sick” of this Qatar?
