CONCACAF to keep the hex

Full article ->

Blazer also said CONCACAF will propose the same qualifying format for the 2010 World Cup that it used for the 2006 tournament. Under that system, three teams qualify from a six-nation final round, and the fourth-place team goes to a playoff for a berth.

"Had we had four places, which we had been pushing for, we could have come up with a different solution," he said, adding that two final-round groups of four would have been considered.

I think we deserve 3.5 places, so it's alright that we keep this system, though IIRC the fourth placed CONCACAF will now playoff against the fifth placed CONMEBOL instead of the fifth placed AFC.
