We got our fill of those things in the 'seventies. They were a big deal at high school football games.

Ya what's the deal? I never knew what they were called until this year but I have one, my brother has one, buddy has one. We don't even take them to the games anymore 'cause we're kinda tired of them and unless you're sitting near fans, they tend to pi$$ people off. We always referred to them as 'sports horns'.

Wasn't Arjen Robben robbed of a likely win for the Dutch by the ref not calling a penalty when he was tackled (as in, like an American football tackle) just a few meters from the goal. Surely, he wouldn't have missed a penalty kick from that distance?

He was badly upset by the ref decision to let it go, for sure.

Arjen Robben has a habit of going down easy, normally if an opposing player even looks at him he falls down which is why if he was tackled and he stayed on his feet any referee who knows him or of him would definitely think that it was a nothing tackle hence why Howard Webb did not give any foul for that

besides there are clear rules for advantage play and those were followed to the letter of the law - if the player wasnt able to take advantage then he cannot call it back and claim for the free kick just because he felt he didnt get the advantage - because had he scored thereafter then he wouldnt be complaining

anyone claiming bias against the dutch is just a huge case of "Sour Grapes" - in fact i wonder why all the dutch fans are saying nothing at all about Nigel "Bruce Lee" De Jong and his crushing of Xabi Alonso's ribcage

to put the world cup final into perspective

At a restaurant last night, my companion asked me if I wanted to 'go Dutch' on the bill. So I raked my studs down her chest, argued with the waiters, and left in tears.

Ya, like he's any different. That's the only true blemish on the game.

Sorry, but I wasn't hoping for either. I was watching for the sake of the game.
