Its the logistics of it, as you'd not be able to do the draw for the next round until the last round has been complete, and potentially giving some teams 2 days off if they finish group stages late but are drawn in one of the earliest next round matches, where as if you finish early[Ooo errr] and get drawn in one of the later matches you get a longer break. It also makes the travel for those earliest knockout games a lot more problematic for the teams involved as you'd need to set off right after the draw to be there ready to have a days training the day before.And if you delay the next round by a couple of days to allow for the sorting, then you've got fans milling around waiting 'taking in the local culture', as well as momentum being lost for TV viewers with a longer break. I know I'm already suffering having to wait 2 hours between games this week compared to the 1 hour we've been getting. God knows what I'm going to do on Friday?!
Also would be much better for my work patterns if the kick offs were 9pm 11pm and 1am And the final by the way kicks off at 4pmWhich is totally fucking insane!I'm working til 5. So the world cup final is being watched by me on the fucking bus!and even then it's only the second half Really should be an 8pm kick offSurely the entire universe agrees with me on the final kick off time!who wants the final to be in the daytime!
Did someone say there's no football on Friday?
Will likely be the same times in Qatar too, except it'll be winter. Who wants to watch the WC in winter?
Fuck that, I hate the god damn cheating french. Fuck them!The Hand of Frog!
South Koreans doing fairly well, and Germany don't look too special for the third game in a row. Love a bit of Kilbane on commentary.
