This CANNOT end in PKs.

They have Karl Rove as a consultant.

carnifex2005: Koman Coulibaly: carnifex2005: Koman Coulibaly: carnifex2005: Fark you ref. Fark you.

What did the official do incorrect? If Canada wasn't cheating, then...

It wasn't holding onto it too long or handling outside the box.

Sounds like someone is watching through several thick layers of Canadian-tinted beer goggles. The calls were legitimate. Canada should play within the rules if they do not want calls to go against them.

Hardly. That call is never called for a reason. I rewound it and saw nothing different from any other kick from goal in this game.


Look who you're arguing with.

IIRC the complaint was specifically about the dirty tactics of the US women on set pieces - grabbing, elbows, etc.

xria: Koman Coulibaly: carnifex2005: Fark you ref. Fark you.

What did the official do incorrect? If Canada wasn't cheating, then...

The defensive player made no attempt to play the ball with their hand/arm, or have their hand/arm in an unnatural position, so therefore that is not a foul according to the letter of the law, although often as long as their is enough distance between the shooter and the defender it gets given on the principle the defender should have time to move and stop the ball with another part of their body. So the penalty isn't clear cut.


Sure it is. If the official called it, then it is a penalty. That's real clear cut. What's so hard to understand about that?

Pole vault- Cuba misses at 4.80m (aborted in mid-vault)

Russia at 4.80... knocks off the bar and is eliminated- gets bronze

Hope says no!

Corner? absolute bs.

This would have been an excellent Gold medal match! i think either of these clubs can beat Japan. Too bad canada is going to lose

Corner kick for the Yanks.

Bad call there... Should have been a goal kick.

Heh. Also not a corner. What a joke.

this ref has had a nightmare, all game really.

ball was already out when she kicked it off the canadian.

3 minutes seems a little low considering how much time the refs spent making sure people were lines up

The corner is on the line judge, not the ref.

Come on My future wife, Alex Morgan, that was lame.

Scruffinator: paj: Corner? absolute bs.

No, it wasn't. The ball as to COMPLETELY cross the line. And if it had, then the line judge would have correctly indicated as much.
 
2012-08-06 04:33:34 PM  

consider this: Come on My future wife, Alex Morgan, that was lame.


I've already given my son permission to marry her. You can't have her now. :)

Jones just picked up major sportsmanship points for congratulating everyone else in the 400 before running off to get hugs and get a flag.

Yup. Hopefully it doesn't get to penalty kicks.

Seriously, there's not gonna be anything left of whichever team wins this one...

NBC will be sure to cut that out of their delayed broadcast.
