First, that particular referee is no longer in the World Cup after that debacle of gamecalling. Second, saying "don't rely on the referee's decision to win", in reference to a goal being taken for no reason you have put zero thought into what you're saying. If the referee's decision can take away goals, then obviously you rely upon the referee's decision to win. You might as well say "don't rely on the Internet to send all your emails".Quote
Frankly, you, like many others, are just running down a laundry-list of thought-terminating cliches trying to protect an obviously antiquated and inadequate system. I wish you think for a second and imagine a better game with video review, instead of just mindlessly repeating brainwashed bullshit about "uncomplicated" world wide 32 country football games.
I yielded, and unlocked her all my heart, who with a grain of manhood well resolved might easily have shook off all her snares: But foul effeminancy held me yoked, her bond-slave. O indignity, O blot to honor and religion! Servile mind rewarded well with servile punishment!
The only sport I don't think should have instant replay is baseball. Just because a baseball game with instant replay would truly take fucking forever.

this stuff happens in the world cup. It always has, it always will, you can get mad as hell about it when it happens to you but you just kinda have to accept it. It's part of the history and culture of the game. Personally i bet fifa is thrilled when this stuff happens, as long as its only once, twice at the most per cup. Generates controversy and interest and money. It just hasnt to the usa before, and the us media particularly espn are giving the world cup a deliberate amount of massive exposure to try to get the us more interested in soccer, so you have to expect the outrage to be magnified too.
the ref was awful as well in the first half, he was less strict, the us played with bad position much of the time and slovenia capitalized. Second half, ref tightened it up and the us got on their game. And then he made his inexplicable call disallowing the goal.
fifa has already given him a poor revie, guarantee this is his last world cup.
