Even if it was a foul, (the hand holding or the bear hugging), it's a foul that is so common with that kind of free kick (or was it a corner kick?) it shouldn't have stopped it from counting as a goal.

Good... they got robbed, he was awful all game, after the first 15 minutes I turned to my brother and said something along the lines of " This ref is doing a pretty crappy job huh" He was like "You didn't watch the morning game, no one can do worse then that ref"

Well...

Shouldn't this be in the world cup thread?

They won't change the decision of the game so it's irrelevant anyway.

It sucks that the US can't appeal the decision or whatever. Not that it's gonna matter, anyway.

As a baseball umpire of 4 years, I know what it's like to screw up calls and take the heat for it. People accept it a lot better when you apologize or at least explain your call. This ref did neither, so IMO he deserves whatever happens to him. But it was his first World Cup game, so one side of me wants to live and let live. The other side of me is a US fan who will never forgive such a transgression.

I see where you're coming from, but the report said that he had been officiating for 17 years. IMO, he was ready to officiate a World Cup game, and even if he wasn't that's no excuse for making a bad call.

That was such bullshit. I 100% guarantee that the ref was given a bribe. You simply DON'T screw up that call.

Not only did he not call the bear-hugging against Slovenia, but he also made a non-call against the US. That's not just bad reffing.

Yep. Look at the France-Ireland game a few months ago.


Anyway, World Cup thread.
