So far, I really like the way Germany and Argentina played... ph34r.gif

I hope Kaká starts to play his best, otherwise we will have trouble unsure.gif
Specially if we have to play against Spain next round (likely after yesterdays surprise)

Now France is almost out... blink.gif

I think Argentina might just win the hole thing. I like team Germany too, but Argentina has got the best forwards in my opinion and the HAND OF GOD so my guess is that Argentina will win the WC. I hope Finland would someday make it to the WC but I doubt that. Anyways a great game against South-Korea!

Congrats to Serbia, I still think my team would have deserved one goal...but I kinda expected this. Now we'll gonna win against Ghana!
Bogdan and Sinisa, don't you two also think the referee was way too strict? I even thought the penalty was a joke...

what happened there??? I saw another game... one where Deuschland deserved to win... but the main problem was Klose's expulsion.
in my opinion the referee was too strict here... I mean... it was not too hard for a red card.
anyway, Serbia did a good job before a great team, and also got a lot of luck... what in futbol, is more that 50%... be sure of that

The referee was too bad. He must show the red card to the serbian player who used his hand ! This is a standard action when someone uses his hands on purpose. That was a farce! Nevertheless congrats to Serbia

Yeah, the referee was too strict, but this was not the only German reason of lose...I think it's not dramatic for us, I rather think it's good to see how good we can play and what happens when some things don't work...this could be extra motivation for a good World Cup!
However, Argentina is my favorite to win this year

I think the US gets the "We Got Screwed" prize for the day. Nobody even knows why this winning goal was disallowed.



You need a challenge option as we have in American Football, where crucial calls can be reviewed. A coach is allowed to challenge a few times in a game, and they look at the play in slow motion from all angles. It only takes a minute, and if the call was clearly bad, it is overturned. This would also be a good way to get rid of bad refs. If a ref has a lot of calls overturned, you just fire them, they don't belong there.


edit: I see the FIFA had this youtube video removed, just a few minutes after it was posted. Trying to hide something FIFA? Never saw a video removed like that, so quickly, in the history of youtube. What a load of crap.

FIFA made an agreement with youtube to remove non-official videos very quickly. During the world cup it has been happening a lot...

But yes, why in the world the guy canceled the last US goal? huh.gif

And why in the world FIFA is so reluctant to add technology and replays to referees? huh.gif

Well, I stand corrected on the speed of removal. But then again, what is the motivation for them to remove little short youtube videos. Espn never bothers with that kind of thing. I say they are doing it to protect their butts, so many bad calls, they don't want evidence of this on youtube.

I understand the reluctance to bring review into a game, but it really makes things a lot better, if handled right. And it really means officiating is better. Refs are not impartial all the time, everybody knows that. And often not very competent. They may have gotten their position for political reasons more than ability. If a guy knows he is going to get overturned on bad calls, he is going to keep that in mind.

Especially in world football. In Basketball we accept that refs give some teams advantages, especially home teams, or teams with well known coaches they are afraid of. But you can overcome that in a game where you score 90 points. But in world football, one call like this will determine the outcome, review should be in place in some fashion for this game. We have had it in american football for a long time, both on pro and college level. Nearly everybody approves of it, so long as it is handled correctly (not allowed to slow down the game).
