I've said before several times that MLS is a perfect fit for FW. I'd love a downtown (or otherwise urban area) Stadium, but without proper transit It'd have to have so much parking surrounding it that it'd likely be a detriment to the area it came to.

Ostentation is Qatar's motto.  They're dipping into their oil money to pay for this!

Yeah, they dipped in the oil money pretty heavy to line the pockets of the World Cup location decision makers.
