I think many of the newly elected board members were guys accused of taking bribes from Qatar to support their bid for the World Cup over the US. FIFA president Blatter and disgraced former CONCACAF president Jack Warner were notorious for pumping millions of dollars into Caribbean federations, some of which don't even field national teams. That's how the crooks keep getting reelected and how Qatar gets a World Cup despite being a terrible place for a summer international soccer tournament.
Maybe US, Mexico, Canada, Honduras, El Salvador....can leave CONCAF and go to SA.....and play the WCQ they have. Those are brutal but they would revert back to Groups....just like Europe, when 20? new countries all of a sudden came into being and they had to turn into 2 teams and the Washington Generals like Groups for Europe Qualification.
Australia left the Oceanic Soccer Federation......as they were not being challenged by Fiji and such.
