  1. No, is not that i did not like it. It's the fact that i found Atlanta just like meh, boring and not very appealing to an international audience. And the fact that some members would probably think it would be too soon for the United States, so why selecting a city that could lead to another lost?? If they can bid with another city with a better image?? Im sure Dallas is very capable of hosting it.

  2. Do we know that for sure? I haven't seen a lot of figures from other countries. Also, keep in mind.. that's the total Telemundo and Fox paid for BOTH the 2018 and 2022 World Cups (not to mention the 2015 and 2019 Women's World Cup as well). So divide that in half to get what they're paying for 2022.

    We all know how expensive tv rights are in the US. Other than Brazil, I don't see any other major TV network from other country paying more than the US.

  3. I can't speak to the situation in other countries, but I can assure you that if the World Cup moves to November-December, it is going to get buried in this country behind the the NFL. And Fox will do their best to either wiggle their way out of that contract and/or perhaps even try and get out of it entirely. I know US television rights aren't as big to FIFA as they are to the IOC, but it's still a big investment that Fox would be getting screwed on, so they have a right to be pissed. Whether or not FIFA compensates them remains to be determined.

    The US still paid FIFA for tv rights most $$ than any other country. By the way, Telemundo paid (+$610 million) more than Fox (+$400 million).
