    Team USA should have won the game and been in great position to move on. However, the Ref stole the game by making a BS call! Donovan doesn't know what it was, but most people do. The foul was being American and playing for Team America!

    Watched the game (what else to do with my coffee at PST?). The ref was from some nether region country between may balls and my ass. U.S. got ripped off. Maybe Glenn Beck's soccer rant was correct yesterday.

    Sucks for you guys, but that's the way it is. This sort of thing happens all the time. You're really not that special.

    Besides, you guys *just* have to beat Algeria to go through. And don't expect this ref to really be seen again after this blunder...

    Too bad instant replay hasn't come to 'foosball' and Central America. What, your infrastructure can't support it?
    Oh well, I'll stick to americano football........Go Eags!!!:lol:

    worst call I ever heard of by a soccer ref was when a player was given an infraction for falling down dead on the field.

    Not disputing that; it WAS a goal. But the goal wasn't disallowed because the ref "hates America," the goal was disallowed because you got a terrible ref. Happens all the time.

    No, there isn't instante replay in foosball, as far as I can tell. There IS however, instant replay in football (you know, the sport that you play with your foot), and believe it or not we DO get it here in Central America. In fact, I just saw an instant replay in the Japan-Netherlands game. Well, that could just be Costa Rica, but I assume you can watch it in the rest of the region, considering everyone gets the same feed. In other words, your LAME SWIPE DIDN'T WORK.
