Did Fifa Steal This World Cup For Europe?

Sun Jul 02, 2006 6:00 am

After seeing the refereeing in the BRA-FRA match, it's a good question.

Will you PLEASE stop this? It's getting really annoying.

Nah... refereeing aside, Brazil has been playing like scheiße this World Cup. Sorry, but they deserved to lose.
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

Quoting Derico (Thread starter):

Ridiculous because of:

1. Ronaldo dives and gets a free kick

2. Juan got yellow after he stopped Viera, most refs had shown red in this situation.

'nuff said!

Are you talking about Ronaldo´s dive that lead to a promising free kick shortly before the end? Oh well, conspiracy theories...  yawn 

First it was a pre-arranged Brazil-Germany final, now it has become an anti-South America conspiracy. Face it, Argentina is out although they would have deserved to proceed further but they lost the penalty lottery. Brazil deservedly got kicked out today, it´s as easy as that.

Europe has the world's most corrupt authorities and referees. Take a look at Italy and German football in the last year, and Spain and other leagues in the past.

It is a legitimate topic seeing how that French goal was offsides. And I wanted France to win because of Zidane, but not on a goal where not one but 2 players were offside.

You are annoying because it seems you can crititize all you want but can't stand criticism towards Europe.

South American refs aren't that much better either.

The ref was very good! France clearly played better than Brazil, deal with it!

Thread is closed because it was just posted to stir the pot and to start a flamefest!

Hey, something we agree about  Wow!

And because I prefer good calls, I wasn´t delighted by Ronaldo´s dive leading to a free kick...clearly a deliberate act to prosecute Brazil for not being part of Europe.  crazy
