Chris Beattie, I agree that the mainstream media who predominately align themselves with the rival codes will start blabbering about how we've wasted part of our tax payer funded $45 million bid money on bidding for the 2018 football World Cup but this is actually incorrect and I'm suprised to see you also believe this.
The facts are that the FFA is preparing one bid that will be used to apply for both the 2018 and the 2022 World Cup. It does not cost any more to bid for two than it does for one world cup therefore we have not wasted any money by bidding for 2018.
Regardless of this, Sepp Blatter is a complete moron for suggesting to change the rules at this stage of the process. Reminds me when he offered Oceania a full spot in the World Cup then reversed his decision 6 months later. Unbelievable.
Not sure if you've read the book "Foul" written by English journalist Andrew Jennings. Blatter tried to stop it from being published as it revealed a lot of what really does go on at FIFA. After reading that I've lost all respect for him and many others at FIFA.
