Replay a mistake? Seriously Fifa?

I have complained about FIFA before, and I’m sure I will complain about them again. There’s a certain corruption that comes from any all-inclusive international organization. They stop making the best choices and find a way to try to even the playing field. This can lead to numerous poor choices. FIFA has made their share of bad choices, from choosing such a poor location as South Africa, to their choice of referees (making nationality a priority).  Recent statements by FIFA have become hard to stomach though. In response to allowing a goal that they shouldn’t have, FIFA said this: “We will not enter into any debate on refereeing.” They were quick to identify their mistake though, saying: “This shouldn’t happen,” Maingot said. “Replays can be shown but not when there are controversial situations. We will work on this and be tighter in future.

Yup, you got it right FIFA. The problem isn’t the blown call, it isn’t your refusal to address these issues… The problem is the replay, you shouldn’t let people see your mistakes. Way to go FIFA, you’re officially a evil empire. In either case, don’t worry I’ll go back to ignoring soccer and FIFA after the World Cup.

    FIFA is fucked. I don’t get too much into sport but I watch the usual big games and Formula1 (the only sport where Brits rule)

    Football is just shit. Billions of £$ and genuine goals are just ignored while no-goals are given. Every other major sport I know of has instant replays and effectively uses them.

    I’m not bitter either… Germany deserved to win against England and while a lot of my English friends hated seeing the Germans win, I cared less. They deserved to win and that’s all there is to it. England were shit and shouldn’t have even been there IMO.
