“I could outline a number of those things, but we’re not prepared to bid if the rules don’t change. The technical reports need to mean more. As far as I’m concerned, there should be a public disclosure of votes. There’s no reason, and the IOC made this change, that executive committee members, or in the next case all federation presidents, need to visit member countries to see if they have an airport, and on and on and on. It’s not normal, and customary gifts, there’s got to be a limit financially."

-- U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati, who said on Wednesday's at the Leaders Sports Business Summit in New York that his organization would only consider bidding for the 2026 World Cup if there were reforms in the bidding process. (Leaders Sports Business Summit)

    "we’re not prepared to bid" just sounds like Sunil is disorganized. What he meant to say is "We refuse to bid"...
