2010 FIFA World Cup

My point was originally that even though the dutch played in a rough way they were no more physical than the Swiss and even though de Jong in any other game would have been sent off I simply can't see where you are coming from.

 

Both of Heitinga's bookings were unfair in my opinion and ironically Robben stayed on his feet when he could have gone down and got Puyol sent off. What do you have to say abut that? I like the way Spain play, but I hate the attitude that they and the Spanish have, diving and crying and being general imbeciles. That's why I cheered on Inter against Barcelona and it is also why I remained somewhat apathetic whilst everyone else was jumping on the Spain bandwagon.

 

Sure, they are all wonderful players, but they are in my opinion just as bad as the Dutch and their style of play is sometimes just as ugly as the Dutch style.

 

I never said I did go to South Africa, you implied it by saying that you watched the World Cup live. And how many games have you been at? You soon realise that with such a partisan crowd present the decisions that the referee makes can be distorted somewhat and this results in poor decision making.

 

I am for video technology, once again you are putting words into my mouth. What I said was that slow motion replays make things look worse, which the undoubtedly do, de Jong's challenge looked at first like a coming together, but when shown in super slowmo it looked like he tried to kill him, which is a case of the TV lying to the viewer. Or sight based prejudice if you prefer.

 

I always maintain that video technology will solve some problems, not all. At the end of the day it is still a human reading what is on the screen to their own ends, they will get it wrong. For example here a simple counting error by the 3rd umpire costs Pakistan the ODI against Australia and this guy not turning the sound up on his microphone and costing the bowling team a wicket. For an example in Rugby League where it actually cost a team theleague Championship, click here

 

 

Maybe because cheaters such as Van Bommel, De Jong, Robben and Van Persie won't get away with stuff with techologoy? I don't know.

 

That made me laugh hard. They didn't cheat...

 

I know you probably didn't read all of this, so just to sum it up:

•I am right

•You are wrong tounge.gif

Frankly, from what I see, nearly every team at this World Cup has cheated in one form or the other. It is just the way football is going now. And it would go on even on the next WC.
