The Worst Call Ever

I spent most of my morning watching the USA versus Slovenia. It was absolutely thrilling and horribly crushing too. Below is the goal that was disallowed which would have given the USA the lead and probable win. I still have no idea what this referee was looking at to call it off.

That guy had to be on crack. I saw it too and there was zero reason to disallow the goal. The normally staid announcers were livid.

At least they did not lose. But that still sucks!

He certainly wasn't looking at the two Slovenians he could have carded during the play.

in an attempt to bring a little bit of humor to the situation...here's the wiki entry on the referee (that wikipedia quickly pulled but someone was awesome enough to screen-cap, thus ending up in my inbox a zillion times):

First of all, the U.S team is playing really good! Congrats

-The referee is blind! it was not offside, there was no foul, it was just crazy! The game was amazing and the only thing the referee should have made was a penalty kick; one man from the U.S team was knock down, two other were being grabbed...just crazy.

I hope your team can pull it off and win the next match.

Ditto .robert. I'm still pissed.

Welcome to the total agony that is the World Cup. It's always really painful, especially if you're English lol or now American.

Only good news I can give you is that it is good workout for your heart and you're not out of it yet, if England beat Slovenia and everyone beats Algeria, you're through with England.

Enty, stop posting world cup spoilers. Some of us have to DVR the games and hate to have them ruined by you.

valerie said...

cdanluva - if you want to remain unspoiled, don't read the internet. Alot of us watched the match in real time and want to talk about the bum call.

Enty, please continue posting about the World Cup, even after the US is eliminated (hopefully a while from now).

Did anyone catch the earlier match? Yellow cards were flying anywhere.

We were robbed, grrr.

valerie said...

@Alli - so true about the Cup being painful if you're English. We can't score against Algeria? Really??

cibele said...

I was really sad for the US. The guys were so excited to tie the game. So unfair.

.robert said...

@kathrynnova, you know you can watch the games live on the internet? Lemme know and I'll provide the links.

cdanluva said...

I don't comment often but I've been a CDAN fan for a while. One of the reasons I enjoy it is because ENTY doesn't just focus on celebrities, but has interesting items.

Also, he posts stuff from around the world, which I appreciate. I was in Holland when he was posting about Joran, and it was great to read about here, and get his take on the situation.
