Oh, Jack

CONCACAF strongman Jack Warner comments on a possible/probable U.S. bid to host the 2018 World Cup:

The United States should abandon plans to host the 2018 World Cup in favor of a 2022 bid, FIFA vice president Jack Warner urged Tuesday. Warner wants to back England to host football's showpiece tournament, but says it would be "political suicide" not to support the United States in his role as president of the CONCACAF federation, which covers North and Central America and the Caribbean. "I have to convince them not to bid," Warner said in an interview to be aired Tuesday night by the British Broadcasting Corp. "It is easier for me to convince America to wait until 2022 ... I have said to England that until America gets knocked out, that's where my vote will have to go."
