Are you ready for a 48-team World Cup?


Unanimous vote. Sixteen groups of three. Sounds like they might eliminate draws as well, which means a whole lot of minnows playing 10 behind the ball in hopes of winning the PK lottery.

Doing the math, that means 48 group games and a 32-game knockout stage. That will stretch the World Cup to nearly six weeks. The quality won't be nearly as good, but I can live with that.
