Qatar is on a big publicity kick, throwing around petrodollars in exchange for credibility, and soccer is one of the ways they're promoting themselves. We saw what happened with the World Cup in '22. They straight out bought it. There's now talk that some of the matches will be played in other Gulf states like Kuwait and the UAE, in exchange for more petrodollars. Now my other favorite team, FC Barcelona, has just accepted €165 million to place the logo of the "Qatar Foundation" on the front of its jerseys for the next five years. Never heard of the Qatar Foundation? Me neither. It's run by the local royal family and supposedly subsidizes, like, schools and clinics and stuff. But the Israeli government says that the Qatar Foundation is a major source of funding for Hamas, the terrorist gang that rules Gaza and often attacks Israel, and they are pressuring FC Barcelona to rescind the deal. Hamas is on the terrorist lists of both the EU and the US. Shit. Now how can I possibly support a sports team that's promoting an organization that financially backs terrorists who have attacked Americans, in addition to Israelis? I imagine I'll continue watching the games on TV and rooting for the players, but will buy no more merchandise and not go back to the stadium. What would you do if the Royals were paid to promote the Qatar Foundation on their uniforms?
