Governments reject FIFA's "egregious & immoral demands"

On last night's show, guest host David Menzies reported on the North American governments opting not to host the 2020 World Cup due to FIFA's "egregious and immoral" demands. 

FIFA has demanded a tax exemption from local governments, asked them to assume 100% of the costs and to be exempt from local labor laws. 

The financial impact of FIFA's demands would be so damaging that even a BC NDP cabinet minister thought they were too much!

FIFA, like the IOC, have become little self-serving fiefdoms with obvious “greasing of the skids” for senior administrators like Blatter… In both administrations, the purpose of “the game” was subverted decades ago to who in top administrative posts could most profit from it… And that is why both sports entities are suffering from lack of viewership, most notably the Winter Olympic Games just past in South Korea… And they deserve it….

I have trouble sleeping at night; watching Soccer in bed solves my problem. Many times the FIFA games are 0/0 ties.
