Referees screw Italy and now Spain

How much proof do you need that the World Cup is rigged?
Spain got d!cked by the referees exactly the same way as Italy.
Why is it that the only time that there are stupid referee decisions is when South Korea are playing?
Spain deserved to win the game........not South Korea :fmad:
I hope Germany win the World Cup so the cup can stay in Europe.

Well I s'pose it would be fitting for it to stay in Europe - when I was at school (sometime a century ago) the rugger buggers called it wogball - me? I was too busy building cars! heheheh

I'm going for Germany too. The only thing I care about now is Brazil going out!! I want them out!! For such a brilliant team, its so annoying how a lot of thier players fake on the field trying to get a sympathy call when in fact nothing has happened....especially that wanker Rivaldo. Brush him on the leg and he'll start cluching his face as if he were saying "It burns, it burns!!!"

After Ireland was no longer in the running, I'm also supporting Germany (both countries blood runs in my veins.)

Disagree with blaming the ref though, don't be yet another sore loser Italitan! :s3 If they had scored goals, they would have won.

They did score a goal that was legal and Onside and would have won them the match but it was called offside. Replays and the comintators and experts confirmed this was wrong decision.

Also in extra time Totti gets a red card for diving {yellow then red for disagreeing} which FIFA has confirmed that after several reviews contact was definatly made and no card should have been shown.

As a result Italy had 1 less man spirits were dampened and they lost.

First half penalty was there IMO even if they had scored i would have said the same.

Go Germany!

I have German Bloodlines but do hope that they are knocked out by Korea. Brazil apart from all the dodgy injuries are by far the best team and should win their final two games easily! I hope it is a Korea and Brazil final for shear excitement. I feel extremely dissapointed for Italy whom where a great side beaten only by the officials. Soccer is getting as dodgy as cricket!!
