Having said all that, yes, if I had to bet money I'd say MetLife is line for the final, but I would expect Dallas to at least host one of the semifinals and possibly the third place match, but I totally wouldn't rule out JerryWorld. You're the one who brought up "with the 'Olympics' in mind" in relation to AT&T stadium. Yet the USOC bypassed Dallas on a number of different occasions in previous domestic Olympic bid races despite that stadium being built. Sure, Dallas could host semifinals or the third place match, but the actual final is overreaching, no matter how much of a negotiator a certain Texan power broker is (I'm sure FIFA has already dealt with bigger). Everything else just sounds like the usual "everything is bigger in Texas" talk. FIFA will surely want the "ideal fanzone" for the 2026 final to be somewhere else where it won't even slightly reminisce the ultra conservativeness of the 2022 host! Plus, what better view than Manhattan right across the Hudson, vs what? A view of the parking lots! 2 hours ago, stryker said: I won't discount the red-neck Bigot part. That's one of the reasons I left. And Georgia is run by red-necked bigots too. At least Georgia is showing some strong signs of purple these days (unlike Texas, & it's all of the sudden younger brother idiot state).
