Why are alot of people complaining about the lack of alcohol during the world Cup in Qatar. I never drank alcohol in my life but what I heard or seen about booze is absolutely not a good thing.

The minute people start drinking they become a different person. They talk in a slow motion voice, they spit in your face, they become unpredictable, you never know what they are capable of doing to you or the environment. They ask you your name every one and half minutes. On top of that they don't remember a thing of what they did when they are sober so you have to forgive them.

One day I was working as a delivery driver. I couldn't find one of the customer's address and I stopped to ask two men if they could help me but they were drunk so they both got in to the car, one in front and the other guy tried to sit at the back but there were alot of clothes with a hangers stick. I have seen him pushing the clothes so hard, I said to them guys what are you doing I just wanna ask you an address why are you in the car. They said that I am their taxi so I have to move. I told them I am not a taxi driver and the one at the back was keep saying, yes you are while he was pushing his face through the clothes like we were in Forrest full of tree leaves. After a moment of madness two girls helped me to made them know that I am not their ride. Anyway my point is that alcohol makes you things like that. You can mistake your ride for another car but you can't bush a whole lot of clothes in hangers and think that is a taxi car.

We should applaud Qatar for stopping alcohol in public places so we can have a health World Cup.
Nice try.

How are they gonna know who is having a one night stand and who isn't?

I guess they won't allow a woman and a man rent a room in a hotel, unless they show proof that they are married to each other.
Probably the only WC in history where you need to bring your marriage certificate if you are coming with a woman. I am sure you can create fake ones online.
May also be the first World Cup that you need to bring a printer along with you.

Part of the foreplay with the person will be to print a fake marriage certificate. Can be quite romantic for the needy ones.

How do you even enforce such a thing. Is it going to be like when I was a kid and you go on an overnight school trip and teachers had to go room by room to check for any hanky panky.
A better question is why would you want to enforce such a thing.

It will be interesting to see how many arrests come out of the world cup, the whole point of them bribing their way to getting it was to promote Qatar, I wonder if there will be any leniency in how they police the fans?

They will have the Qatari version of Horatio Caine with a moustache and instead of CSI they will create a SCI Qatar: Sex crimes investigation.

It has never been enforced in Qatar. I have been to Doha many times and never have they ever asked for a marriage certificate. Never.
As for alcohol you go to the bar in your hotel and you can drink. They never asked for your passport or any identification.
It's a good idea to ban drunken louts on the streets.

That wouldn't surprise me to be honest.

Yes you are right. They are not imbeciles. So long as it's discreet they are not bothered. If you get drunk and create a public scene then you would get arrested.
I am waiting to see how they would treat the drunken fighting on the streets?

The previous WC qualification match against Maldives they needed a friendly referee and 10 extra minutes for them to win the game.
What qualification? They qualified as hosts. They didn’t have Maldives in their Asian Cup qualifying group so not sure which game you’re referring to. They’re also the champions of Asia and got to the semis of the Gold Cup so it’s a bit weird people are shitting on them about a meaningless friendly and an imaginary game.

I understand people hate them but let’s not turn it into a free for all hate-fest with any old shite thrown in.

EDIT: You’re talking about a game from 7 years ago and ignored all they did since then? Come on man :lol:

Trashing Qatar and supporting England at the same time :lol:
If anything, they have a better chance progressing in the world cup than Sir Gareth Southgate.

I hope everyone who shits on Qatar, I don't ever see their names in the World Cup thread when it comes around. You just know that they will all watch the World Cup anyway.

If you have not watched this, it is must watching.

This World Cup is void. Even if England flukes it, it would be void for me.

A culture that accepts slavery has no business hosting such a sporting event.
The absolute corruption of FIFA is open for all to see.

Accepting close to a billion dollars to allow them to host the tournament.

Are we surprised at the decay of the game worldwide?

I wonder will they actually uphold things like that? I can see a lot of activist stuff occurring with such a worldwide event.
I really can't see the local authorities enforcing any of it tbh, they want nothing but good news to come from this tournament after all the criticism.

No way can so many European, South American and African fans be expected to turn up and 100% stick their rules without causing absolute carnage.

I can tell you alot about women's rights according to my religion, there is even a whole Chapter in the Quran dedicated to Women and it is not just any chapter but the third longest chapter. They are our mothers, Sisters and we married to them.

Some of the things they have the right to do:

Choose the man they wanna marry. If they say no to a man for marriage and it is forced, that marriage is forbidden. They can drive, have their own business, can have a position in the government and so on.

One thing that is not right to do to someone that you love and care is to tell them to do whatever they wanna do. You have to stop them from doing bad things but some people think bad things as a normal thing. I wouldn't let my girls to have a tattoo in their faces, go on holiday Alone or wear clothes that is showing her body.

Freedom is not when you believe that no one can tell you what to do or not to do. Freedom is when you know what is right and what is wrong.

Qatar national team is now run as a club, where they're offering nationality to players from other countries to play football. Just go through their squad and you'll see what I'm talking about, how many players are born in Qatar.

2018 world cup winners, are 90% immigrants (either born outside France or from parents recently immigrated to France). Qatar offering them nationality is not strange because it is a small nation and hard to have the numbers to maintain a high standard league and national football team.
They have immigrant players playing for them, but many coming from the aspire academy (were raised in Qatar) and they consider themselves as national, (just as Umtiti and his teammates consider their selves nationals).

No, there's a difference. Qatar does not offer nationality to expats regardless of how many years they work/live in the country.
Umtiti would be a French national even if he was not a professional footballer. That's not the case with the players playing for Qatar.

I hope this tournament will be a big failure.
I am from Belgium and it seems they have a lot of troubles to sell tickets so far.
Could FIFA add a rule that a country must have qualified at least once to the WC before being to host it ?

I don't think it needs to be that radical. Every country has problems so no matter who hosts there is going to be an issue with something but the issues in Qatar are a huge issue because of the simple parts of life that are banned.

And they can't tell right from wrong but have to get their morality from medieval scripture from Arabia mainly rehashing bronze age ethics.

The Quran is way more prophetic than I could have ever imagined.
