It’s gotten to the point where the NBA isn’t much better. In fact, there is a lot more contact allowed in soccer than there is in the NBA.
Yep - the NBA is brutal. They need to find a way to punish the players right away (during the game). Fining them after the game certainly doesn’t help the team that gets jobbed by the flop
Robben himself admitted that he dove in the first half of the game — and he does this all the time in Europe. I actually like the Dutch — heck, I’ve even followed Queen Maxima of The Netherlands on Twitter.
But karma is a b*tch and what comes around goes around.... I hope the Dutch reach the Final and then get CRUSHED by either the Germans or Argentinians, just like in the finals of 74, 78 & 10.... If you play dirty you’ll get what’s coming to ya!
Two EPIC games today!
Neth/CR should be an instant classic! We were routing for both Neth and CR.
I told you CR!
(Oh BTW, it's France & Nigeria 0-0 at the Half ;)
France wins going away 2-0 over Nigerian green & white in the early R/16 match...
Germany's Andre Schürrle touches the ball past the GK with a deft heel-drag 2 minutes into overtime for a 1-0 lead over Algeria.
