Just an astounding, exasperating game yesterday.
It also showed how inept and corrupt FIFA is from the Top Corner Office to down on the field.
In Dresden, a red card was handed out to Rachel Buehler without a second thought, yet Brasil’s Erika goes through all kinds of histrionics and it doesn’t even draw a penalty.
In Mexico City, Uruguay goal keeper Jonathan Cubero got no help from the officials when a jerk in the stands shines a laser light in to his eyes before an indirect penalty kick. Again, FIFA’s referee would not bring the game to a dead stop until the laser and the idiot pointing it in to the high school age kid’s eyes were apprehended - continuity of the game and assurance of another Mexican victory were more important than the kid’s eye sight.
Sepp Blatter is still a turd.
