We live anyway in a materialistic world, so why everyone points to poor FIFA?!
Some players might earn more than FIFA budget.

If Spain / Portugal gets the bid, it would be good for their economy and also for EU.

You make it sound like England's economy is running full steam. You heard it here first along with MAFIFA:

PIG SUK

Was Sepp Bellend Blatter in there as well?
Maybe it was part of the "bidding" process.

How would that work?

Do they normally decide two at once, or was it a BOGOF deal this time?

No, this is the first time they've done a two-for-the-price-of-one deal. And Seppo admits it was a mistake.

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018 Announcement

Why don't they just pick a sodding country and say "Right, you're hosting in blah-di-blah, whether you want to or not, now go along and organise it"
Only if life were so simple....
