I think we had a thread on this but I cannot find it so I apologize for creating a new one.

Well, FIFA has once again proven to be a joke of an organization as Joel Campbell has been cleared for his ridiculous dive that caused Besler to be suspended for the Mexico match.

They reviewed the incident and then decided not to second guess the referee? Then what was the point in agreeing to review the incident in the first place? Seriously, they're just asking for players to cheat to gain an advantage. It set's one hell of precedence going into a World Cup.

If the roles were reversed and say Jozy or Clint did this to one of Costa Rica's players and caused them to sit out the next World Cup Qualifier, I would have no issue with our players picking up a suspension.

The worst part is this debate on ESPN between Keller and Lalas. Keller is spot on but Lalas is talking absolutely out of his ass. I understand that for a debate ESPN wants both sides of the argument but Lalas is talking complete nonsense.

A slap on the wrist. But at least if he does it again, FIFA wont be too kind with him. Just wished they would review all cards in games like this. Seems very unlikely but would definitely help.

I want to lock Lalas and Twellman in a room together forever. Let them talk as much as they want.

Of course it is a skill to break the rules, why would any sane person promote that though? It's not easy to break the rules, therefore it takes deft skill to do it. but its a VIOLATION of the game. Its also hard to elbow Terrence Boyd in the nose and get away with, it takes deft skill to get away with it (Olympic qualifying), let's support its practice!


The next test for the Dooley-led revitalization of the Philippine national team kicks off soon.
