There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I read a letter to the editor in today's newspaper that said it didn't matter what the final score was in any soccer match. Final scores, who won and who lost, are an American invention. Soccer is only about skill.

Maybe the NK's could try that out and see if it flies.

Maybe 'scores' are an American invention but in the good old days, when soccer was played using a skull as ball and the 'goals' being the village squares of the two teams, the losing team was summarily executed.

Oh joy! Another unnecessary red card. screwy The average referee in this WC is about as competent as the average goalkeeper, it seems.

And don't get me started on FIFA's "new" rules. Sepp Blatter should resign already! Franz Beckenbauer for FIFA president! Smash

Chile vs. Switzerland.

A Swiss player got the red card now.

The referee saw an assault against a Chilean player.

Personally I saw nothing like that in the replay and I'm getting seriously disgusted with the referees during this WC by now! mad

@Jayhawk: Ich wei nicht was die Offiziellen den Schiris vor dem Spiel im Briefing sagen (oder zu rauchen geben...), aber mittlerweile ist es echt lcherlich!

Einfach nur noch zum Kotzen, in manchen Spielen sind die Schiris halblind in anderen dafr dermaen kleinlich, dass es einfach keinen Spa mehr macht. Das ist jetzt die nunte WM, die ich mitverfolge, aber sowas habe ich echt noch nicht erlebt.

You are not alone.
I just turned off the TV.
Qualification of referee seems to be deteriorating, or at standstill at the very best over the last couple of the WC games.

The red card to the Aussie for intentional handling was way too absurd and today's card against Swiss simply crossed the line again to reconfirm that it's referee's game of playing God.

FIFA needs to jerk its head up. It seems to be too busy counting money...

Ich wei auch nicht mehr. sigh Die beste Schiri-Leistung, die ich bisher gesehen habe, war bei Dnemark gegen Kamerun - und das war meiner Meinung auch eines der besten Spiele dieser WM. Das zeigt doch, dass die Qualitt der Spiele nicht so grottig wre, wenn die Schiris nicht so katastrophal pfeifen wrden.

Ich traue halt der FIFA und vor allem dem Blatter nicht ber den Weg - mchte gar nicht wissen, was da so hinter den Kulissen abgeht. Und diese "neuen Regeln": Laut Paul Breitner besteht die Regelkommission der FIFA aus drei ziemlich alten Herren aus England, die von modernem Fuball wohl nicht mehr allzuviel verstehen (wie gesagt, laut Paul Breitner, bei Waldi's WM-Club smile ). Jedenfalls scheint die Auslegung dieser Regeln bei den Schiedsrichtern fr einige Verwirrung zu sorgen. Dann kommt noch Unerfahrenheit hinzu, und bei einigen womglich nationale Ressentiments? Ich sage nur USA gegen Slowenien. reading

Was ich erstaunlich finde, ist dass selbst ehemalige Schiris wie Urs Meier (der ja bei den letzten beiden Turnieren als Experte immer die Schiedsrichter in Schutz genommen hat) teilweise massive Kritik ben.

Mir jedenfalls vergeht langsam der Spass an dieser WM...

Ja, warum der Pfeifenheini das Siegtor fr die USA nicht gegeben hat ist mir immer noch nicht klar geworden. Immerhin, der Typ ist raus aus dem Turnier.

Was soll man bei den Schiedsrichterleistungen auch noch beschnigen? Da hat auch ein Ex-Kollege keinen Spielraum mehr.

Die Meinung von Signore Pierluigi Collina wrde mich auch mal interessieren - wenn ich mir solche berforderten und inkonsequent pfeifenden Typen wie diesen saudi-arabischen Schiri bei Chile-Schweiz angucke kriegt man doch richtig Sehnsucht nach so einem Schiedsrichter von Format.

I'm sure they will. The great leader is renowned for being a VERY understanding person. grrr

The last 45 minutes was not a pretty sight for the Koreans, and their drubbing was made worse with the match broadcast live into their Stalinist homeland - the first live game shown there in a year.

I read the article, Jayhawk...it is frustrating.

Well known referree Markus Merk summed it up well, when he says this is "Wettbewerbsverzerrung" (distortion of competition)
