LadyBinky: I hate the Netherlands' jersey. It looks like a gym or camp issued t-shirt.

I think it's the second most sold jersey, after Brazil. That means you're in the minority.

serious question, I have always been told that only America calls it soccer, but the Aussie team is called socceroos. Who else calls it soccer.

The English until about 1950...when they noticed Americans using the word and automatically started hating it.

Russ Feingold's Brass Balls: meyerkev: Russ Feingold's Brass Balls: The US should be rooting for Australia here.

Why?

Any circumstance where Germany and/or Ghana don't move on to the elimination round is good for the US.


ah, thanks.

Joke all you want, I find it cute that the English team seek sympathy from 6-year-old orphanages .

Canada.

The word was invented at Oxford, so the Brits, incidentally, called it soccer once upon a time.

Kinda like the Metric system :P

I was wondering if it had to do with being former British colonies, I know they call it soccer in Canada.

I'm not really a fan of the color orange but they have my favorite jersey.

Maybe they should wear that instead of the orange then?

lol. They only have on jersey and it is orange (AFAIK)


Their away jersey is light blue.

We have a game..awesome.
 
2010-06-19 10:26:05 AM
They Really need to change that red card+penalty rule. Really ruins the game.
 
2010-06-19 10:26:06 AM
Didn't think that was red-worthy. Not blatantly intentional at all!
 
2010-06-19 10:26:08 AM
shadowtec: you farking corrupt ref

No, good call that one.

meyerkev: RminusQ:
NED -275, JAP +800, = +330

What does this even mean for us non-gamblers?


If you bet 275 on NED to win and are right, you profit 100.
If you bet 100 on JAP to win and are right, you profit 800.
If you bet 100 on a draw and are right, you profit 330.

In short -[big number] is huge favorite (BRA was a -1600 favorite over NKR), -[small number] is a small favorite, even is a "50/50 shot" (but not really due to house edge), +[small number] is a modest underdog, and +[big number] is a big underdog.

Guys, the ref didn't screw up. The rules are screwed up.

shadowtec: you farking corrupt ref

Why?

Handball on the goalline. What on earth was he supposed to do, give him a farking biscuit?
 
2010-06-19 10:27:24 AM
It wouldn't have been anything if he was German....
 
2010-06-19 10:27:28 AM
That's BS. There was no intent to handle that ball. Give the PK, sure, but a red, just no.
 
2010-06-19 10:27:57 AM
shadowtec: you farking corrupt ref

That's the right call. YOU HEAR THAT TORSTEN FRINGS???

digistil: WTF?? I'm not an Aussie fan in any way, but was that red really valid?????

It's a handball in the box and it stopped a goal scoring opportunity, 9 times out of 10, it's a straight red.

Kind of like taking down a player when there's no one between the attacker and the goal.
 
2010-06-19 10:28:41 AM
digistil: WTF?? I'm not an Aussie fan in any way, but was that red really valid?????

I'm thinking that it's an automatic red. Ref had no choice. It hit him on the arm and prevented the goal.

Korb: That's BS. There was no intent to handle that ball. Give the PK, sure, but a red, just no.

This. I would think it would be more of a yellow card on that. His arms were pretty much down by his sides. He tried to chest it but it was a rocket.
 
2010-06-19 10:28:45 AM
No that is a proper call by the ref. His arm was not at his side.

If you can access a copy of the Manchester Evening News from the 1958 Munich Air Crash, it's referred to as 'soccer' there too. It's a portmanteau of Assoc. Football (assoc is an abbreviation of association), the official name of the sport.

So how many Schwatzers are on the pitch at the moment.

I know: 'pitch' could be considered racist.

Goal scoring opportunity, intent has nothing to do w/ it.
 
2010-06-19 10:29:30 AM
Hard to tell if it was intentional or not, ref could have gone either way. That's a damn hard call to make.
 
2010-06-19 10:29:33 AM
james1878: shadowtec: you farking corrupt ref

No, good call that one.


if he had his hands up then yes.

a penalty yes (hell I go for a yellow card) but not a send off

between that and the US disallowed goal there must be a betting scam going on and the res are in on it

Ah. But it didn't look remotely intentional to me. Did it look intentional to you?
 
2010-06-19 10:30:44 AM
beerrun: Didn't think that was red-worthy. Not blatantly intentional at all!

Text book red. Foul play denying a goal or clear goal scoring opportunity.

Doesn't have to be blatantly intentional to be hand-ball, if he moves his arm towards the ball, gains an advantage by using any part of his hand or arm, or even has his arm in an "unnatural" position and the ball hits it, that's foul play.

Hand ball + denial of a clear goal = red card.

Jackpot777: If you can access a copy of the Manchester Evening News from the 1958 Munich Air Crash, it's referred to as 'soccer' there too.

More recently in fact. This was published by the BBC's publishing arm in 1990.
