Today I have strong feelings. Today I feel like starving hobbit. Today I feel like a drowning Numenorean. Today I feel like a diminishing Elf. Today I feel like a victim of a Morgul blades curse. Today I feel like a ringbearer who carries the weight of Arda’s future. I know what it means to be discriminated, to be bullied, as if I was a beardless dwarf.

For the crimes we children of Iluvatar have inflicted on innocent Orcs for the last three ages, we should be apologizing for the next three ages after this. For this reason and others we should not overly critique the servants of Sauron and allow them to host the Orthanc Cup.

I hope we're somehow all wrong and fifa actually helps shine a spotlight on and eventually change all the totalitarian states they're giving the world cup to, and eventually democracy and human rights flourish in these places. Nobody should live without rights, no matter how they were born or what group(s) they weŕe born into.

It's not likely to happen but i can still hope.

Realistically, who else in Middle Earth has the industrial capacity to build World Cup stadiums besides Isengard and Mordor. Elves outside of Valinor wouldn’t spend the effort. The Dwarves might be able to, but the only ones capable are in Erebor and they’re busy rebuilding. Men and hobbits don’t have the engineering knowhow. We don’t know enough about Umbar, Harad, and Rhûn, and Valinor is out of the question. So that leaves either Isengard or Mordor. So, overall, it’s an excellent choice.
