WTF was Greece doing? They were quite content to fiddle around with the ball, like they were totally unaware that they needed to score. That made absolutely no sense at all. Just dreadful.

Winner will be either Netherlands, Brazil, or Spain.

Aside from the goal, what a shameful display of flopping by Spain.

Meanwhile you supported a candidate that wanted to issue tons of Executive Orders on Day 1 of her administration. Nope not authoritarian at all, eh? Oh wait she is Team D so gets a pass from you.

I was rooting for the Dutch, but that match should have never reached extra time. Why that Dutch player wasn't red carded for kicking the Spanish player square in the chest will forever be a mystery. And quite frankly, the better team won. Spain controlled the ball and dominated the attack. They deserved to come out on top.

The Dutch had a minimum of two breakaway-style opportunities and they pissed them away. The cleat to the chest was by far the highlight of the game for me. I was at a Central American hangout in DC and it was 95% Spain fans. That was great.

That was a complete farce, Webb totally destroyed that game - just not sure if it was his agenda or FIFA.

Webb gives Heitinga his walker papers for a second yellow, for committing the exact same hold that Puyol did to Robben. Yet Puyol wasn't even whistled for a foul.

And Webb also allowed (The awesome) Nigel De Jong to stay on the pitch after Kung-Fuing Mark Wahlberg.

Well...........

I picked the winner right.

Yay?

The Dutch had their chances, but the best team won.

I'm still trying to figure out what he was thinking. I've read his post game comments - he thinks he was brilliant.

What a fucking half-wit. He wanted to impose his authority and keep control of the game - so he carded.. everyone. He then realised that if he if he kept going, he'd be pulling out reds and fuck up the game - so he stopped. WTF?
When he put his book away, people were just picking themselves up and dusting themselves off and getting on with the game, like they would have done in the first place. Then he makes three monstrous errors and affects the outcome, he blew every big decision he had to make.

I don't understand how the better team won. The Spanish are deeper on paper, but so what. None of their names did anything in the tournament or the game, possession percentage is a deceiving statistic with them. They play passy-passy with each other in their own end to midfield and don't create chances or opportunities - nothing happens.
They literally try and bore the fuck out of the entire planet - it's like 1980's Soviet hockey.
The Dutch weren't putting up with it, they were literally kicking them off the ball and getting chances.

Shame about the end - but that:

Twasn't pretty. Too bad Robben couldn't push it past Casillas. Twice.

Too bad both teams resorted to flopping to "earn" free kicks outside the box.

Too bad Webb didn't continue issuing cards to where it was 5 vs. 5 before extra time.

I love soccer. But I hate the flopping and wailing. It should be mandatory that anyone who goes down and does not get right back up to have to sit on the sidelines for 3 minutes. No one would risk going a man down for 3 minutes just to buy a free kick. Maybe in the penalty box, but that is a risk they'd have to take. Anyone who is truly hurt would need 3 minutes at least to shake it off if not subbed for.

The thing I hate about soccer is these guys flop like a fish on a boat deck then 10 seconds after they flopped they're running full speed up and down the field.
That's one of the reasons why soccer will never be really popular at the professional level along with the fact that it pays very little money and our best athletes aren't playing it. It seems like it's relegated to the AYSO little kids running around with bows in their hair chasing butterflies.
