It's like fighting or hooking or slashing in hockey. It's not pretty but it's part of the game.

Except you can get penalized for that in hockey, all I ever see in soccer if he doesn't draw a call by laying on the field half dead is play just goes on.

Just seeing how racist, poorly regulated, and soft "football" players are, makes me not care for it.

You sometimes get penalized for that, the same way sometimes players get penalized for diving/hooking/slashing.

They get punished all the time. I watch soccer regularly (EPL, La LIGA, CL etc) and players get a yellow for diving/embellishing all the time.

The thing is its very hard sometimes since the game tends to be very fast nowadays but usually if you have a competent ref the diver will get punished. It can go both ways sometimes, watch the video below; Torres gets sent off for DIVING when he was actually tripped by the Man U player.


The Japanese ref for this game I noticed was constantly out of position (he was sprinting A LOT during the match). For the penalty call he didn't even consult with his assistants, just straight up pointed for a penalty right away. Poor ref but Brazil was the better team today...regardless of the penalty.

Anyways once the knockout stages come around FIFA is only going to have top euro refs from the big 4 leagues.

Yeah, apart from a few of the horrific miscalls, that was one of the things that stuck out to me most. While over the 90 minutes Brazil was certainly the better team (maybe not 3-1 final scoreline better, but better nonetheless), the referee played a significant role in that aspect. Let's face it, that penalty was one of the softest I've seen in the past year and a ref with either better positioning to see the foul or the balls to actually call it should have red carded Neymar before he ever scored. That was a ridiculously blatant arm strike to the face of Modric, it's one thing to make contact with someone from the air (like a few moments before that when Paulinho's elbow made contact with Perisic coming down after jumping for the ball that Perisic didn't really challenge for but instead just got under the Brazilian) but it's another to from the ground just straight arm your opponent in the face. I know the stage is huge and refs don't want to be the headline (he hadn't screwed that up, yet..) but that's a red to me:

OMG, officiating in the world cup so far has been horrendous. first the brazil game, then the 2 offside blown calls in the mexico game and now this.

Decosta initiated the contact by putting his foot back and barely touched the defender.

brutal call, brutal.

soccer will NEVER be popular in north america, unless there are major changes in the culture of how soccer is played.

north americans wont tolerate dives and the amount of corruption seen in soccer.
