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.


I thoroughly agree.

But I suspect it doesn't happen because part of the charm of football is blaming the refs for everything after the match laugh.gif

Challenge is not necessary in football. The game looses its purpose and becomes like american football which is too slow and boring to watch (3 hours with constant commercials and transitions between offense and defense between plays). This way like Fran said, you can always blame referee for some mistakes which is what makes game more human. Sometimes goals are disallowed without it being offside or defensive player being fauled. Accept it move on and remember Maradona's "hand of god" goal and it will all be clear smile.gif

Don't worry the bad refs will be found and dealed with anyway.

But when you got the technology, it should be used.
If someone looses because of the ref, it will often cost them economically, and off course everyone will be angry.


Go Denmark... God damn we were able to beat Sweden and Portugal in the qualification, so try getting the ball in the right goal tonight!

Denmark vs Cameroon was actually one of the best matches to watch so far, because it was open on both sides. Really a lot of scoring opportunities and emotion.

Well done by the way. wink.gif

Looking forward to tonight's match...

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

You know what would be cool? A hawk-eye system like they have in Tennis, where teams can overrule the referee, but only three times a match (0or something like that). So that the game doesn't stop every single second wink.gif

Yeah, we did... biggrin.gif Well, it was horrible to look at, for a neutral watcher. But it's the result that counts, I'd say, so far. Typically, we play beautiful football in the first matches, and end up with nothing. Hopefully it ll be the other way around this time.

Only problem is that we might face Italy now in the next round, given that they'll probably be second in their group sad.gif

Don't be afraid of Italy...and Arjen Robben will be back soon. He played an awesome season with Bayern, they would not have been so good without him. Actually, I think you deserve to become world champion this year. Yes, a german can say that! (Not in public, though tongue.gif )

So far this has been a cup of south american teams, argentina, brazil, paraguay and uruguay. Let's see Chile tomorrow... tongue.gif

By the way, one more bad referee was on brazilian match today. Kaká was sent out (with some acting of the other guy), while some guys from Ivory coast made 3-4 yellow/red card fouls... Unbelievable mad.gif The brazilian team will spend the night in the hospital... So many bad fouls! I am just hoping the best for Elano.

At least until 70 minutes we had great football, specially from Kaká and Luis Fabiano (amazing second goal, even though he used arm). ph34r.gif

Not sure what the referee was thinking for the second goal, he was right next to Fabiano on both occasions where he used his arm for the goal.

I think he could not believe on amazingness of that goal, so he did not cancel tongue.gif He definitely saw it (or maybe assistant saw it), cause he asked Luis Fabiano if he used the arm.

But I 'd rather see him canceling the goal and giving yellows to every violent foul we suffered. That would have been right...

Fabiano is a cheater. When referee asked him if he used his hand he said no! Score was 1-0 at that time for Brazil. Very low and shameful behavior of him.

World Football has taken on a much higher level of popularity in the US. I am a recent convert. Still put Basketball and American Football ahead in my eyes, but I have come to appreciate the sport. A lot of those who had little interest before have changed.

I hope the US and England advance. If the US ties I have to hope England does not advance, because we would not advance in that event. That is the only way I root for Slovenia.

Which may seem odd, as all 4 of my Grandparents were born in Slovenia. My sentiments are still with England (provided that the US gets a win over Algeria).

Looks to me like anyone could win this year.
