(Interesting Perspective... and JMO, but I was kind of shocked by this attitude, but I suppose if the Gov is corrupt, useless, and ineffective, I can understand how they feel.)

I think that it is interesting about how some of the population feels about their politicians. Shows a lack of faith in their politicians and that they don't think it will get better. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Maybe an RV would help their outlook and get more people involved to make their leaders more accountable. Feel like FIFA should have cut them a little slack and not banned the team. A lot of changes are going on in their country trying to get things right. JMO
