Why I hate soccer (and FIFA), part 2

Why I hate soccer (and FIFA), part 2

The last weekend of World Cup Soccer was the most shameful display of officiating the world has ever seen.  Thank you FIFA!  You proved just about every point I made in a blog written a few weeks ago entitle, WHY I HATE SOCCER.

In the past weekend we've seen:

1) the ball actually WENT INTO THE GOAL and was not called a goal

2) offsides led to a goal, but was not called

3) a team was eliminated because of a penalty shoot-out.  Why not actually decide the winner of a soccer game by playing SOCCER? 

THANKS FIFA, for reminding the Americans why we hate soccer and why the rest of the world should hate soccer too.
