ENGLAND: FIFA REFS BURN THE BRITS

What a HUGE MISTAKE!!! The 2010 World Cup is going to go down as one of the most infamous ones ever.  I’ve never seen so many refs blow so many calls.  Quick recap on today’s game: England goes down to Germany 2-1.  Late in the first half, England mid-fielder Frank Lampard seems to score against the Germans when he hit the cross-bar and ball bounced almost 3 feet past the goal line. Goal right? WRONG!!! Refs don’t see it, instead of a brand new game headed into the half, the Brits are devastated.  They shouldn’t have even come out in the second half.  I don’t want to hear anything about, “well, they lost by 3 goals so it doesn’t make a difference.”  As an athlete myself, you take away a goal that could’ve tied up the game, it changes EVERYTHING. You feel out of gas.  England would’ve come out with a completely different game plan in the second half. I’m not going to even get into the bad no-call in the Argentina-Mexico game because I wanted Mexico to lose.  But it’s just not fair to the players.  U.S. got burned a couple times by bad reffing.  FIFA hasn’t done shit because U.S. is too nice.  Now England.  Still, no comment. Let me tell you what it’s gonna take for FIFA to do something like implement instant replay: Brazil or Argentina need to get burned by a bad call; either that or one of these refs are gonna get shot. I’ll tell what else, the German goalkeeper needs to get fined for conning the refs. Throw in all the flops and the World Cup has turned into a freakin’ drama performance.  Win the game on its merits for pete’s sake…
