    World Cup womens edition

    Been pretty decent so far.

    One thing in the France/Nigeria game today that is a real crime. The girl takes a penalty kick. The goalie moves forward a half step prior to the kick. That Video Review nonsense gives her a rekick. Here's the rub for me on that one. The kick was WIDE of the frame and had no chance to go in. Not as though the keeper made a save to deny the goal based on her movement. JMO, if you miss the frame, you don't get a re-do. Instead of a draw, Nigeria gets an L.

    The other thing is the stutter step prior to kicking the ball. The goalie is anticipating the kick as she should. Turns it into a timing guessing game on top of the rest that is going on.

    Being the kicker, the goalie moving forward a bit never bothered me. You actually expected it.

    Yep, agree on this. There needs to be more subjectivity in the review.

      I'd like to see reviews of 'injuries.' If they're faked, yellow card the flopper. You can do it in the time the person is flopping around on the ground.

        The penalty given to Norway yesterday against South Korea was questionable I thought. A hug by South Korea for sure, but the resultant flop by the Norwegian was overdone for sure. It made me wonder if the hug by the South Korean was really all that effective since the flop was obviously faked.

          If they are going to use VAR to enforce the rule they need to require the kicker to be consistent in motion, either in keeping the same pace or accelerating. To allow the stutter can lead to infinite opportunities to draw the GK off. Kickers (except with Norwich City, who missed five of six last season) have enough advantage without playing more mind games.

            The last 5 minutes of this Scotland Argentina game was a farce. The ref lost control, two VAR stops take way too long using up all of stoppage time, and then hardly any extra stoppage time is given. Ends up 3-3 after Scotland loses a 3-0 lead.

              My answer to injuries and flopping. If you lay on the ground for more than 15 seconds, you need to be subbed out for 10 minutes of game time. The sub that comes in for you is wasted. So, if you come back in after 10 minutes the one that took your place is gone for the game. They also should put a 2 or 3 point shot line at 35 yards. It would make the game more interesting when someone is up 3-0 and they are just kicking the ball out of bounds and down the field to clear it the last 5 minutes of the game for time wastage. If a team could get back in the game with one shot it would be like a Hail Mary or a last second punt return for TD (punt it again Bob) in American football.

                The kings of flop artist are the men from Uruguay led by diving specialist Suarez.
                Watched the USA men's team beat Guyana which had at least 1 player whom until last week was on a 4th tier US club team.
                Wonder if the men could beat the USA womens' team.

                  The women would get worked badly. Just from a speed and strength perspective. The mens team is BAD

                    LOL the referee in this Norway/Australia game is horrendous.

                    Norway getting all the marginal calls and then she boots a player for AUS with a marginal call. Ridiculous.

                    Now a clear off the ball foul by Norway which should have been a second yellow for that player IIRC, and all she gets is a stern talking too. The fix is in. JMO

                      Too funny that VAR continues to be a mess.

                      France gets a goal taken away which was correct, but, for the wrong reason.

                      Then they actually get it right on Brazil's goal.

                                  Referee Pearl Harbored Japan with that questionable penalty call . Fighting Geishas flame out.

                                    Shoulda been 3-0, somewhat shaky at times, but a win is a win and the USWNT advances.

                                    AMERICA!

                                      The US keeper is not good and that's being kind.

                                      The offside on that 3rd US goal was bad... if that was offside so was the France goal.

                                        The krauts and the swedes are having a good game so far. It doesn't matter who wins of these two the semis are going to be really good. The US had a tough road having to go through #4 France as the host and now #3 England in their quest for history. The US are a very good team who are definitely the favorites to win but they need to be looking at other options at GK after this tourney going into the Olympics IMO.

                                          Bring back Hope Solo at goal.. She's great and has a smartass, take charge attitude. Plus she's great to look at.

                                            Hope might have let that goal in from Renard yesterday. Renard also would have gotten punched in the head during that process.

                                            Plenty of SourKraut around today. :)

                                              Meat curtains. No thanks. Plus she’s a loose cannon.

                                              Rapinoe is the hero we deserve.

                                              Would like to see more carli Lloyd. She’s hot and a badass soccer player. She’s not hurt. Why isn’t she getting more PT? She’s one of the best players in the world.

                                                  Good game here, England at USA. I thought we'd handle them easily after the first few minutes but now they're looking good too and we're making mistakes.

                                                    Just as I write the above we go up 2-1 on a great header by Alex Morgan. Afterwards she celebrates by drinking a cup of tea like a proper English lady.

                                                        If there was ever an incidental contact deal, that was it for that penalty call. Similar to WR/DB getting feet tangled up.

                                                          Agree. I saw nothing that showed actual contact. It was only right that the penalty kick was saved.

Still haven't watched a second of girl's soccer this World Cup, but I've gotten my craw completely filled up with the loudmouth, look-at-me fucking cunt called Rapinoe. Seriously? For the first time in my life I began rooting for the USA to lose at something. Fuck her, and fuck the politics and bullshit she drags into the game with her. Fuck Kaperdink, fuck Curry, and especially fuck this Rapinoe dyke. Way to ruin a great thing for our country and our people.

                                                                            Anyhow, now y'all carry on cheering for her, since it's not even about the USA anymore. It's just the world vs. Rapinoe. Meh. Fuck her. She is what is wrong with sports and the world. Play the game, and shut your fucking hairpie hole.

You ever seen her stand and put her hand over her heart for our anthem? You ever seen her drape herself in an American flag at a celebration? Me either. Then again, I don't watch the selfish bitch, so she may have done one or all of these things in the past. Don't know. What I do know is what she's doing now; while on the biggest stage her sport has to offer. She's acting the selfish buffoon drawing attention away from her team, her team mates, and her country. Is what it is.
