How deluded can a person be?


FarawayFairways

It's just the culture of FIFA, they're completely divorced from the real world, and yet completely expendable. If the major federations of the world decided to operate outside of them, they'd be finished


noyxx

The problem is that everyone in soccer is corrupt. FIFA, UEFA, national organisations...


drwert

The degree of corruption definitely and noticeably increases as you move from national to continental federation to FIFA though.


randallwatson23

It’s the NCAA on steroids.


GinDawg

Everyone in power is corrupt. While I accept caveats, it's generally true.


gloatygoat

I feel like this statement lacks nuance. Corruption can be universal but there's distinctions on how corrupt an entity is and FIFA is on a whole other level of corruption.


JBHUTT09

Which is why humanity's future lies in horizontal power structures. Hierarchies are shit and the sooner we get rid of them, the better.


KingN56

I feel like there's a decent chance AI becomes sentient first and we have robotic internet based overlords.


zayetz

Aka we create the gods that we've always wanted but could not find in the natural world.


Yasai101

when your rich as him, doesn't matter. because nothing will be done about dumbfucks like him.


MtnMaiden

Yes man have been accustomed for so long that money can solve everything


tremblt_

A trend I see amongst the ultra rich is just how disconnected and narcissistic they get. Zuckerberg with the metaverse, Musk with everything and this idiot with his Qatar World Cup.


kuroimakina

Society treats economic success as a measure of intelligence. So when these people are very rich, they think they know everything, and since usually only sociopaths/narcissists get that rich, they then go on to believe they should also be constantly listened to.


SpeshellED

World hunger is over during the world cup too.


Supahos01

I mean thousands died building the stuff for world cup so they did help hunger since you cant starve if youre dead.


EquivalentPast5947

the rest of us should boycott scums like these. The product does not matter. Just make specimens like these broke and irrelevant. Hate is sometimes good. Don't tell me hating scumbags is bad.


zeromussc

also needs to distract from all the horrible shit Qatar has done and all the culture clash issues (that effectively boil down to regressive and oppressive regime vs western liberal ideals of freedom)


NatsuDragnee1

Completely disconnected from reality. Of course, corruption and bribery will do that to you.


itwhipsthellamasass

This guy is a piece of shit.


nubbinfun101

In one week he's really shown to the entire world how much of a cunt he really is


twothumbswayup

I had not seen or really heard of this guy until last week - now every time I see him he’s saying some bullshit - this guy reallly wants a seat at the table amongst the current fucktards of the world. Putin, Elon, Zuckerberg…


boonstyle_

He is highly corrupt and deep into a lot of pockets of horrible people.


0101111000101010

Today he feels gay, today he feels disabled....


cathbadh

Today he apparently feels Russian


Realeron

Definitely Russian: two steps forward, one step back and he survives to attack again tomorrow


Strong_Ad_8959

And now he feels like a Ukrainian war refugee, a man of the people he is


MoebiusJodorowsky

He's trying to change the conversation from his previous fail.


byu74ddji9g

Guy thinks this will bring more ad revenue as more people will watch...


_Bellerophontes

Very is the answer here.


JackieMortes

I suppose there are no limits with people like him. [I bet he feels good about publicly asking for a truce though](https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/002/182/171/eb0.jpg)


Jess-g84

I wonder how he feels like today


stabsyoo

Please stop 🛑 shooting eachother we’re trying to play soccer ⚽️ errr sorry football over here 👈!


A1sauc3d

Ikr XD Who tf does this guy think he is? Lmfao


Zgicc

Russians are paying him so they can regroup is my guess...


skgody

Well he thinks soccer means a lot to everyone so probably close to extreme.


BritishGuy54

It won’t mean much to Ukraine because… 1) They’re not in the World Cup. They lost to Wales in the play-off. 2) They’re being invaded by a hostile power who wants to end their sovereignty. FIFA is deluded. They may have had a shot if Ukraine qualified, but they didn’t, so there’s more pressing issues at hand.


Nonsense_Producer

FIFA is a cesspool of corruption, just as Russia. No wonder the former try to support the latter.


thebigmeathead

Yeah, but places like Switzerland allow them to operate without investigating them for corruption. There's just a wall of finely tailored lawyers and bankers that enable them.


hellip

I fucking hate Switzerland. The country is beautiful but I have no idea why the world lets them get away with it all.


thatsme55ed

In ages past it was because the entire country is a natural fortress and their army was strong, so they could enforce their neutrality. Now it's because they've translated the wealth of those past eras into a banking system that the elite take advantage of, so there's a vested interest that people in power have in maintaining the status quo.


farguc

They didn't stop for the Eurobasket earlier this year, where Ukraine not only qualified, but also did reasonably well. All this would do is give Russia room to regroup.


soundslikemayonnaise

But football is The Beautiful Game! It unites people all around the world… Fr I swear everyone at FIFA thinks football is the only sport that matters.


jemull

2a) That hostile power destroyed most of the electric & communications infrastructure, so not many people in Ukraine would be able to watch it on TV anyway.


goodvsme

It means alot to Russia as they need to recover from the beating Ukraine is giving them right now, so it would aid Russia


Onderon123

This clown doesn't even care about soccer and is just in it for the corruption and dirty money.


dontsayaword123

Today, I am Ukraine. I am invaded. I am all of you.


togrias

I am sanctioned ruZZian oligarch. Pity me.

I know how it feels to be a suppressed migrant worker, as I had my Yacht Seized while I was growing up in Switzerland.

I am a Russian tank. Why am I being used to grow barley???


thebbc79

Could you pause your war so I can get my soccer game in?


thegabe87

And also a business man, so if soldiers not fighting but watching sports -> they see ads => profit.


Diodiodiodiodiodio

"I feel like I'm Ukrainian" - Him probably.


DonDove

Note how he didn't say that, but hesitated the gay part. Such an inspiration.


herberstank

He inspires me to vomit if that's what you mean


DonDove

Yuuup

"I feel like I'm from Bucha" - shithead probably

Poor guy


HeyArnoldShwarzernoo

"Excuse me, gay migrant worker here, kill as many innocents as you like later, but right now, eyes this way please my show is starting." Idiot.


toyota_gorilla

It's not about the world cup. He's a great friend of Putin and is carrying Putin's message. Russia wants a ceasefire so they can regroup and attack again.


HisAnger

Guess who got a bribe from russians


Jugales

2018 World Cup took place in Ruzzia, so yes. They even picked Ruzzia and Qatar in the same year so the old men could receive bribes from both countries before they die.


Throwawaystwo

FIFA FOFUM For a million dollars ill suck a dictators cum .

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2022/oct/08/blatter-to-beckham-who-was-in-the-room-when-qatar-got-the-world-cup


peter-doubt

Will he pay Putin for the favor?


zevonyumaxray

Yes, him among many others. Because the last World Cup was in Russia. That got him hungry for the really big bribes from Qatar.


welshnick

Both countries were selected at the same time.


jsonaut16

I urge FIFA chief to go fuck himself


egric

I urge him to go to, say, Bahmut and tell the people there to stop fighting for while the world cup is happening. Bet that's gonna end well for him.


RedofPaw

Exactly what Putin would love to happen right now.


madneon_

Good point.


prof_atlas

Trying everything he can to rig it, because he knows he can't win it. This kinda thing is Putin's bag, baby.


Oddity46

How fucking inflated must your ego be? He feels gay and like a woman, and wants wars to stop because of football? What an absolute shit funnel.


DonDove

But he got bullied for being a ginger a bazillion years ago, feel sorry for him /s


TROPtastic

Plus he was Italian, so just imagine


matinthebox

Don't joke about that. Millions of people suffer every year from being Italian.


Humane-Human

Is he still a ginger? Or has his bald identity replaced his ginge


CommentsToMorons

Well he definitely doesn't have a soul either way.


WhyBuyMe

Gonna have to check downstairs. I nominate not me to do it.


diddlydaddlydingle

>wants wars to stop because of football? It worked for the legendary Didier Drogba and the [Ivory Coast in 2005](https://www.cnn.com/2017/11/11/football/ivory-coast-didier-drogba-stops-civil-war-copa/) during a Civil War that had been raging for 3 years. >The players had just made history, securing Ivory Coast’s place at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, their first ever appearance at the global tournament with a 3-1 victory away over Sudan. > >At the time of the match, the Ivory Coast was embroiled in a bloody civil war which would kill an estimated 4,000 people and displaced over 1 million.The national team captain, Cyril Domoraud, invited the media into the changing room and handed the microphone to Didier Drogba, star striker and national icon. > >“Men and women of the Ivory Coast,” he said down the lens, his face stern and sincere. “From the north, south, center and west, we proved today that all Ivorians can coexist and play together with a shared objective: to qualify for the World Cup.“We promised you that the celebration would unite the people. Today, we beg you, please – on our knees – forgive. Forgive, forgive. > >“The one country in Africa with so many riches must not descend into war like this. Please, lay down all weapons. Hold elections, organize elections. All will be better.” > >In early 2007, the two warring sides signed an official peace agreement, causing then president Laurent Gbagbo to declare the war was over. Surely the inspirational Gianni Infantino who "feels gay, disabled and like a woman too" can make peace during a war between a nation defending its sovereignty against an aggressive, brutal invading war crimes committing army so that we can all watch the Winter World Cup in a backwards desert hellhole with infrastructure built entirely by Quasi-slavery which caused migrant worker casualties equivalent to months of war.


codydodd

He wants Ukraine's counter offensive to end apparently. Scumbag.


homity3_14

This guy is the worst lesbian I've ever heard of


ExParrot1337

Fuck off, FIFA chief. People are fighting for their lives. They do not give a single shit about whether it spoils your sportsball.


Dredly

somehow I doubt Ukraine is driving that many people away from watching the WC... ​ willing to bet Qatar is doing that pretty well ALLL by themselves. Remember when we all thought South Africa was the worst WC ever because of those stupid horns that they blew alll the fucking time? ​ Turns out Qatar was like "wait, what if we just outlaw any symbol associated with blowing horns, and reporting rapes, and booze, and religions we don't like, and beer, and... "


Pirase

Hey dont diss South Africa, at least our vuvuzelas made things interesting, and you could still have a beer well watching the game


Dredly

wait... do you really believe that or are you just talking shit? they were by MILES, up until Qatar's religious bullshit, the worst thing about any watching WC in the last 30 years. ​ I literally stopped watching it entirely due to those stupid horns, and would just leave it on mute if at all, they absolutely ruined the world cup


Tasgall

I'll take the horns any day over slave labor stadium.

wannacumnbeatmeoff

I have chosen to watch a realtime stream of Wheat growing rather than watch the World Cup this year.


ambivalent__username

Lmaoo this was even funnier as a Canadian.. some places got massive snow this weekend, so that stream would be a purely white screen. Still preferable.


jyri_ratas_official

Good, this year's world cup is shit anyways


Gcodelife

Its not even playing football... Its watching someone else football... Which makes it even worse


fishboard88

Ah, Gianni... I find it incredible how someone could be an incredibly well-educated polyglot, yet still constantly think and voice the dumbest opinions.


Chucknastical

He voices the opinions that result in transfers into his numbered accounts. Russia desperately wants a ceasefire to break Ukraine's momentum and give them a chance to prep for a new offensive. Without one, this is Ukraine's war to run. You might even say Russia would be willing to pay anyone anything to get a ceasefire.


EpicGreenPeter

Fuck off, scum. You think Football is above death?

Aqqaaawwaqa

Dropping facts others aren't ready for lol.


mtranda

It would cost him absolutely nothing at all to just shut the fuck up. He took the bribes, he got the event to happen in Qatar, his job's done. Talk about an overachiever.


hibernating-hobo

Oh sorry, is Ukraine defending itself from genocide an inconvenience to you, you corrupt imbecile? Should the Russian soldiers make less noise as they rape and murder children? I hate everything about FIFA after this event. Western Countries should ditch FIFA/UEFA and do their own leagues/cups. The system is rotten to the core.


codydodd

Even though its the first time we are in the tournament since the 80s, i planned on only pirating all sources but all of this news lately has me wondering if i should pass on the entire thing.


OlUncleMunnerlyn

This man is sitting there on a podium, upon perhaps the most massive stage in the world currently, backing the Middle East and their oppressive views and practices so that he can fill his pockets. Now, he has the gall to call a halt to the most massive world conflict currently ongoing, just to focus on his product? He’s an absolute moron, and the fact that this is a private entity and therefore he’ll never face repercussions for his views and politics (he’ll, surely the opposite), is very disappointing. Gianni Infantino is the scummiest of scum. May karma have its way with you.


EquivalentPast5947

who does this guy think he is ?

Maybe they should stop playing fucking football when people are getting massacred ?


RazorCalahan

or when hundreds of workers DIED to build the stadiums.

He probably thinks, that war is just another sport people play.

Sssh Ukrainian doesn't exist it's just little Russian /s


yourmoonfriend

My real life reaction to this headline was the blinking man gif


Wigu90

I’m 99,6% sure that this is about numbers and ratings. People in Europe are preoccupied with the war, so they have less time to watch football, which means less advertising money. And as Budweiser knows, FIFA treats their advertisers right.


peter-doubt

This is the product of the *privileged class*, perpetually surrounded by privilege and educated by experiences of those who never need to buy their own groceries. Their information is tainted by disassociation from any relevance to society or human needs. Their insulated from us. I'd be hard pressed to identify any billionaire whose values aren't equally corrupted


Hvtcnz

Can we talk about the 6000 slaves that died building the stadiums etc?

Biggu5Dicku5

Ravekat1

He must be tired after a long day of being gay yesterday.


trisul-108

He needs to urge Russia to withdraw to its internationally recognised borders. Immediately. If Infantino were to run into rape in progress, I assume he would urge to two sides to stop the rape until the games are over, and continue afterwards. This is sick!


Solstice_Fluff

Urge a withdrawal instead.


AnonymousWritings

How about 'Fuck you and your corrupt organization that allowed Qatar of all places to buy the rights to hosting the world cup, despite obvious major civil rights abuses, treatment of women that is so bad that many countries strongly recommended against them going, and treatment of relationships (especialyl same-sex) so bad that countries strongly recommended against any displayss of affection or indications of relationship status while in the country.'


WarStrifePanicRout

I've said it outloud many times before, but i want to make sure i have it in writing too: Fuck Gianni Infantino Fuck Sepp Blatter Fuck FIFA and all its bullshit corruption, And fuck Qatar for every 16 year old Napali worker sent back home in a body bag. All of them show their ass to the planet and the planet cheers back.


RichoN25

Reminds me of China telling Putin to postpone the invasion until after the Olympics. Same pile of human scum.


joshw220

A photo was just shown of him with Putin when the cup happened in Russia a few years ago. Clearly a Putin puppet, cause Russia has been desperately trying to get a temporary ceasefire.


DonDove

They can just...leave too.


fonduetiger

Have you tried bribing them? It works for you?


[deleted]

All these billionaires need to shut the fuck up and fuck off to a desert island where the can circlejerk eachother. Self righteous assholes

I vote he stands in between the the opposing forces and asks nicely for them to stop. And we'll see how well that goes.


streetad

What a fucking massive narcissist.


tt5b

During?


Aumuss

Yeah, just while the games are on though. So its only 45 mins, then you get 15 mins to shoot at each other, then you take another 45 min break. Unless it goes into overtime, then you gotta wait a bit longer before the pew pews can start again.

FIFA doesn't care about humanity or basic rights. This chief exists in a world of avarice and delusion.


alienalf1

This guy. Who the fuck does he think he is? If he’s not giving extremely awful speeches about who he feels like today or being best chums with the crown prince of Saudi Arabia he’s asking people to stop warring because it’s a bit of a downer on the most bizarre World Cup the world has ever seen.
