Default World cup officiating

I'm not saying it's an easy job but moments ago Italy was awarded a penalty kick with seconds to go in the time added on to win one nil over Autralia. This was IMHO opinion a non-call. I thought by the time they reached that stage of their officiating career they were better than that. Absolutely disgusting. He is not paid to make mistakes like that. I hope the official is brought before a panel and immediately dismissed. How terribly sad for the Aussies.

Hey, you should have seen the ref last night in the Holland/ Portugal game if you want an even worse official. Still, shame for the Aussies, but Italy were the better side.

Ya I heard that was awful also but I didn't get to see it. Today is hard enough to believe.

I thought the Aussies were the better team

Bad officiating was the Portugal / Netherlands game.

Portugal is protesting the Deco red card.

The penalty kick call at 95' could have gone either way. It will go no further.

This is soccer, so perhaps the offical was paid to make that penalty kick call ...

The Aussies played with more heart. Italy has the best defence, and they have experience and talent. The only goal they gave up in 4 games is one from their own defender. Tough to win if you can't score.

Everything about the this World Cup is making me sick. The camera direction (refusal to replay fouls etc) the referee's...Actually I thought the referee between Portugal/Netherlands was quite good...ALL the yellow cards were justified as far as I am concerned...ESPECIALLY the Deco card. People just don't have any morals anymore...anyone trying to slow down the game with a cowardly act like that should be banned from playing football ever again.

But the whole world cup is a circus...it's all about acting / faking / cheating..holding ...pushing ...tripping ...obstructing..delaying

I think that Crouch should be banned from the worldcup for scoring a goal by pinning someone down by his hair and pulling himself up by someones hair to score a goal..why does no-one care about that? Is it because it is against a so-called third world country that everything is allowed?

I can't believe anyone still sees soccer as a sport..it's theater ...but very very very bad theater at that. And to think that those actors earn so much.

I never watch soccer...now I know why again..everytime I watch it it makes me sick.

For me the most beautiful moment of the world cup so far was the yellow card Arjan Robbe got for his fake dive......I jumped in the air with the same joy I normally reserve for a beautiful rugby try. Finally justice...or rather ...a little justice...he should have been banned from playing soccer for at least a year for disgracing the sport he pretends to play.

Unfortunately there was a penalty...and I nominate Fabio Grosso for an Oscar for best male actor in the world cup.

Also I nominate Luis Cantalejo for an Oscar for best male supporting actor.


Figo should get an lifetime achievement award...

Robbe should get the Oscar for best rookie actor.
