2018 may happen in Russia, but I think it's more probably than not that 2022 get pulled from Qatar. If UEFA takes the lead, they'll pull it from there as they don't a winter WC.

Oh I think that's exactly what will happen - what take too much foot dragging to say it's too late to change Russia but not Qatar.

Then get ready for China folks.

Looking forward to John Oliver this week:

Then Oliver made a personal plea to these sponsors: “Please, make Sepp Blatter go away. I will do anything. Adidas, I will wear one of your ugly shoes that make me look like the Greek god of aspiring DJs. McDonalds, I will take a bite out of every item on your dollar menu, which tastes like normal food that was cursed by a vindictive wizard. And I will even make the ultimate sacrifice. Budweiser, if you pull your support and help get rid of Blatter, I will…personally drink one of your disgusting items…It can be a Bud Light. I will even drink a Bud Light Lime, despite the fact that all the lime in the world cannot disguise the fact that this tastes like a puddle beneath a Long John Silver’s dumpster.

“But I will do it. I will drink one, making eye contact with the camera, and I will say it was delicious. Because if you get rid of the Swiss demon who has ruined the sport I love, this stuff will taste like f**king champagne.”

haha that's great!

Brian Sciaretta seems to be speculating that Russia 2018 is back on the table now.

That would be big. Where have the last 2 Euros been held - those would be likely replacements I bet.

Euro 2012 was in Poland and Ukraine

Euro 2016 will be in France

UK sportsbook giant William Hill installed UEFA chief Michel Platini as the 6-5 favorite. Prince Ali bin al-Hussein (who ran against Sepp Blatter last week) is next at 7-4, followed by Luis Figo at 6-1.

Right now - I'll take the field bet. People will come out of the woodwork that were very reluctant to challenge Blatter.

Power grab by Putin maybe. Silvio "Bunga Bunga" Berlosconi might be interesting too.

BREAKING: Swiss attorney general says Blatter is not under investigation following arrests of FIFA officials last week.

ABC is saying the FBI is investigating Blatter.

My guess is the Swiss said...resign now and you won't get extradited.

from ESPN

Sources: FBI was investigating Blatter

The FBI and U.S. prosecutors were investigating Sepp Blatter, handling it in a similar way to an old-school racketeering case, sources told ABC News. Said one source: "Now that people are going to want to save themselves, there's probably a race to see who will flip on him first." The FBI declined to comment.

Why continue your run for re-election if you're just going to resign a couple of days later? Did he just want to go out on top?

I see it says a new election cannot take place any sooner than 4 months after the last election. So in a sense, he's bought himself at least 4 more months as the president.

He may get to serve some of his term from prison.

I picked up my daughter from school and explained to her what happened.

I used the analogy of cutting the head off the snake.

She, being a HUGE Marvel fan, went quiet for a second and then quoted Hydra's mantra*.

Daddy was not pleased :(

"Cut off one head, two more shall take its place."

USA Will get 2022 and you may see Portugal/Spain or Belgium/Netherlands will get it in 2018. USA is going to use its card it just got from saving the world of soccer to pull it out of Russia and Qatar based of human rights.

STOP IT!!!

The commercials say if it stays this way for more than 4 hours I need to see a doctor.
