So as part of Russia's totally above-board World Cup bid, they used Ekaterinburg Arena as one of the match venues. Whoops, it doesn't hold enough people to meet the minimum capacity for World Cup matches. So, the Russian solution was to build these stands outside the stadium, that I'm completely sure won't fall down.

How is that different to the stands they put up at Greenwich for the Olympics?

I mean at greenwich the view wasn’t impaired by a stadium, but apart from that

To be fair it's in reaction to an 'independent' report that has cast some doubt on whether Qatar will host the World Cup due to the issues caused by the blockade being imposed by their Middle East neighbours.

It's a bit speculative, but certainly based upon valid concerns.

They just can't stop.

FIFA has changed their ethics code to say that bribery, misappropriation of funds and manipulation of football matches may no longer be prosecuted after 10 years.

Pretty useful if you were one of the officials that was taking or receiving bribes around the 2006 and 2010 world cups, for which Chuck Blazer said bribes were paid, not to mention being close to running out the clock for 2018 and 2022 award. I'd have added 2014 too but Brazil ran unopposed.

That really is shocking and sickening, the whole thing needed a root and branch clear out but instead just carries on as before.

FIFA Scandal: Qatar - Winter World Cup / FIFA arrests / Blatter resigns

Yes its bollocks and FIFA officials may live in jurisdictions where the statutory regime will differ. And guess which one trumps?

However the shenanigins from 2006 onwards are fairly well known and indeed 11 people have I believe been indicted. But how many have actually stood trial? Struggling to name anyone at this point.

Ample opportunity for the authorities to act and not much happening. Not an expert on US law but I note the feds were trying to apply RICO laws extra-territorially. However isn’t there a seven year statute of limitations in the US?

hard to find the death tolls now on google ..... was up to 4,000 men a while ago; to put it in context (an i did work in construction in the UK) for the London Olympics the construction related deaths was one or zero depending on sources ... the 4,000 may be underestimated as it was a record of bodies 'returned' to the countries of origin, mostly Nepal but also Bangladesh and Pakistan .. ffs .. anyways a link here about some of the shit ... an never mind the corruption an changinging the ****** thing to the winter
