But the thing is, wrong calls only get worse if it costs in a goal. Yes good for Italy for finding a way to win despite being a man down, but the thing is that they did it unfairly and two bads don't make a good. If they had done it the real way i would have been nothing but happy for them.
I do agree with you (if it wasn't a penalty, still unsure ) i just mean that if you think like that then eventually you will be hating all the teams

Of course, no one wants a match to end like this.

I could always be like you.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: World cup is a farse

Even Poland got robbed from a good goal against Ecuador so this really has to prove something

ReturnWinter, why do you say your country is in the final? First you whine about referee and then you forget about the opponent of Argentina in quaters

Surprisingly, unlike in Korea, I do enjoy these champs (oh I was happy Brazil won then...) but feeling very sorry for Aussies

I will burn
And you will die...

Like your love of Lucas Neill for example? Yes, he has been a hatchet man in the Prem League. But he did nothing wrong in this tournament and was quite fair, and yet you still go on about it.

Basically I don't let my overriding biases get the better of me. If someone I think is an idiot and a dick and they do well in a tournament, match etc then full kudos.

I've gone on about Neill? He hasn't been particularly bad in this tournament at all. I was just waiting for something. I think he had a good tournament and a pretty fair one and i don't recall making any posts to the contrary

Re: World cup is a farse

but then again.... i don't think it's very logical of me to want italy to get schooled because of bad juding, unless they paid the referee or something


but I can't help it. lol.

Yes, breaking legs in the Prem League for example and making reference to that expecting him to do the same thing in this tournament.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I did mention both of those things but that was cos i got into an argument about whether Australia had dirty players.

If i said i was expecting it then i guess i was wrong, wasn't i? He played well throughout the tournament and i can't remember any bad tackles from Neill.

I will put this in plain language. I am not a huge fan of the guy, but he was excellent in this tournament and the Aussies weren't cheating or dirty in this tournament.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
