Or is it crazy king of this world? Either way, my feeling is that false claims on the application and... erm... not actually having set dates eight years from kickoff would be grounds for losing your job if your job was to throw a World Cup.
Am I being harsh? You could argue that. But remove the emotion and think like, ya know, it is an operating business. I am right next to the point where, in that light, I'd argue it is not harsh.
I will never understand why certain ancient men are such fiends for money. How much does a distasteful legacy cost these days? At least one winter World Cup, that's for sure.
