Ok, after seeing disgraced actions by referee(s), player(s) etc, let's add them up in here, shall we?

Of course, the theateratical play by Shakespeare-wannabe Rivaldo and the undertaken action by that bunch of corrupt 'holding hand ****' towards Rivaldo would be on top. I just don't know which deserves to be on top...:rolleyes:

And since the WC has finished their first groupmatches, I suppose alot more can be added soon.

So, show your frustration/opinion in here by highlighting the moments you think are just intolerable. ;)

Of course Rivaldo´s acting was pathetic.
But I can´t see why that should be more disgraceful than (for example) Hakan Ünsal´s action.

I think something else should top the list, a sign that a german fan held up: "Über Japan lacht die Sonne, über Holland die ganze Welt". :D
Translation: "Above Japan laughs (=shines) the sun, about ("über" in German can mean "above" and "about", so it´s funnier in German than in English ;)) Holland the whole world."

MxPx no offense, but that's not something new. In Germany a group has made a song that parodies Holland's failure to reach the WC (you know the "Ohne Holland gehen wir zu WM" thing, only saw it on the news a few days ago hehe) and it reached the first place in their hitparade or something.. plus there are alot of commercials and entertainment shows that made fun about it so the fan can't be blamed as whole Germany is laughing at Holland like that :D

Btw about Rivaldo... I heard that Korean referee was sent home after that one match, is this true?

Number one has to be the performance by the Portugesse NT. They were the very definition of lackluster.

However, I think that there may be some more shocking things, as the first round is only 33 percent done.

The Korean ref was officiating his last game anyway, i think he already retired. This was a gift to him or sth.

Kyo, I know about that "Ohne Holland fahren wir zur WM"-fuss in Germany. :) I still found the sign funny, just to tease Michelle. ;)

How about some swedish and danish players brawling with their own teammates?

He is home!! Unless you meant they literally have him arrested and restrained at his actual home.:D

I think that Mills's mistake before Sweden's goal was awful.
The worst referee in my opinion was the one in Paraguay-South Africa. He probably got less attention cause there was not a big team like Brazil in it, but he didn't award a penalty kick in favour of Paraguay at 15 seconds (GK should have been sent off), he let the South African midfielders butcher Santa Cruz and his mates, and he wrapped it up with the penalty for South Africa in injury time.

My top ten

1. Bad referees who is clearly not up for the task
2. Bad linesmen who is clearly not up for the task
3. FIFA's politics of selecting referees based on geography instead of selecting the best
4. FIFA's moving of two Denmark games to the afternoon, giving France two evening games to please French commercial interest
5. Fadiga in the Denmark-Senegal game
6. Rivaldo's playacting
7. Saudi Arabia's falling apart against Germany
8. A dissapointing Portugal
9. Dennis Rommedahl's crap performances and Olsen's continuing chosing him over Jørgensen
10. The ticket scandal which means half empty staudiums

1) Waseige's retarded lineup against Japan :yuck:
2) Korean ref that nailed Turkey
3) The linesman who thought he was part of Croatia's defense
4) Rivaldo acting like a baby
5) :greed: Sep Blatter :greed: being allowed to play the innocent chairman again
6) Saoudi Arabia being on this tournament and Holland obliged to stay at home
7) Trapatoni refusing to bring on Del Pierro or Montella instead of Doni
8) Lemerre being the most retarded NT in history. The reason France has little chances to go the the 8-final
9) Klose having big chances on the topscorer trophee only because he had the luck to play an awfull Saoudi Arabia
10) Eric Van Meir ;)

Gman,

First, its Saudi, not Saoudi.

Second, That match wasn't our true form, everyteam has a terrible day.

Is this thread only for this WC? the Germany-Austria scandal in 82 is the biggest disgrace in my book.

  1. Rivaldo...
  2. That Korean ref in Brazil-Turkey game. He could be a fan of the Brazilian team himself. :rolleyes:
  3. That linesman in Italy-Croatia game. I like both teams, but the goals shouldn't have been disallowed! :mad:
  4. Portuguese national team
  5. Hong Kong football commentators. They talk way too much nonsense and are NOT subjective whenever China play. It's a football game, not a place for you to show the so-called patriotism so as to please Beijing in a certain way... everyone knows that China isn't good enough this year! :rolleyes:
  6. No Roby Baggio... :cry:
  7. ... more to add later...

Portugal trying to get the ref changed from Hugh Dallas just because he was the fourth official when they went ape after losing to france at Euro 2000.

Da Silva (Uruguay) not getting the red card against France for "that tackle" on Vierra.

Japan's disallowed winner against Belgium.

Italy's disallowed goal against Croatia (the Vieri offside).

That crazy Japan players' face mask - it gives me the heebee jeebees..:eek:
