What would be crazy is if there where none of those people... at least not all of you are ignorant of football.

Actually, Mexico is one of the hardest teams to beat, they love football there and have many teams playing across their country. They also have hosted the world cup twice.

But the USA would not actually have to beat Mexico so much as beat the other countries in the area to qualify. (Like mine, Canada has only qualified something like twice. We only have 3 teams that play on a national level)

Meanwhile Norway had to battle it out against a whole flock of countries... all of which are obsessed with football. Hardly seems fair.


America, north, middle and south, should've been one qualifying confederation. Much fairer ;)

I must say that I have to agree. Although I am mostly ignorant of the situation, I would say that having more than One for North/Central America is rather unfair. We just don't have that many different countries comparatively speaking. Either that, or Europe should have a lot more 'seats' to fill.

The unfairness is less about the number of positions, and more about the fact that it means that the US and Mexico will pretty much always qualify, since they have so much better player material than anyone else in North & Central America.

Meh, faces are one thing, gameplay is everything.

Plus, Delta Force did it before those games too (and DF1 was before CS too, i didn't remember that).

Yeah, that was in really poor taste, seeing as there are still people being executed in this manner in some countries. I removed the pic, as you can see. Let's not mention it further, guys, m'kay. Thank you.
