Have to think FIFA isn't thrilled about this.


Not that they can do anything about it, but I'm sure the mood in Zurich this morning isn't the best.

Gotta think it's going to have a not insignificant impact on viewership numbers. Of course, with the tournament going to 48 teams after this maybe they don't care. I have to assume a lot of sponsorship deals for next year are already locked up. So unless there are stipulations built into the contracts about what teams are in the WC then it doesn't really matter.
