For fans, media, and sponsors travelling to support a corrupt awardment of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the hits just keeping on comin'.

With Qatar unable to meet FIFA’s requirements to have an adequate amount of accommodations for supporters, they have suggested some people “sleep under the stars.”

With everything (and I mean EVERY aspect) showing a Qatar World Cup will be nothing short of a disaster, you have to wonder at point does FIFA just stop the farce and move on.

Between the bribery, the continued use of virtual slave labor during construction, the construction deaths, the fact that it is being moved to a winter schedule and now this--you have to wonder what FIFA is thinking.

WC 2022 is going to end up being a joke!

Qatar World Cup 2022: FIFA ignoring migrant workers abuses, says Amnesty

Qatar World Cup: Amnesty urges FIFA action over workers - CNN.com@@AMEPARAM@@video: 'sports/2016/03/31/amnesty-qatar-migrant-workers-ctw-orig.cnn'@@AMEPARAM@@sports/2016/03/31/amnesty-qatar-migrant-workers-ctw-orig.cnn

The abuses found include: workers living in "squalid and cramped accommodation"; employers confiscating workers passports; workers being threatened for complaining about working conditions; workers having to pay as much as $4,300 to recruiters in their home country to get a job in Qatar, along with some not being paid for months.
