I'm watching the world cup....for the first time....and it looks like Chile paid the refs pretty well....am I missing something? Australia hasn't gotten a single call....does look a bit odd.....

Anyway, looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about....

Yeah, there have been quite a lot strange / false referee decisions already....looks like they didn't manage to get enough professionals for all these matches.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to Monday when Germany enters the tournament playing against Ronaldo...uhm Portugal.

I guess this is just not intended - as it's the same discussion every four years. The world cup is not a tournament of the best overall teams, but a tournament of a selection of qualified teams from each continent. Same goes for the referees, they are a selection from each continent and this always brings less experienced referees into the focus.

I would prefer it to be like in the ice hockey world cup, where they use the best referees available and no one complains when in a game Canada against Sweden the referees come from Canada, too. However this would never work in football, too much conspiracy theories there already

Enjoyed yesterdays match between Spain and the Netherlands, even though it was the game I wanted to see in the 2010 final

Yeah, I watched this match as well. Congrats for a really great match, Oranje knocked them literally out of the stadium.

I can't remember Spain being defeated in a major tournament that high.

So essentially its a contrived sporting event where players play for their countries but not necessarily for the teams they normally play for....kinda like the Olympics but with only one sport????????????

Yep, there are many players in the tournament who play for food in Germany's 'Bundesliga' which you might slightly compare to the US MLS.

But I think this applies to every World Cup in any sports discipline...

Exactly, although you could probably say this goes for every sporting event. Besides that it's a huge money making machine making billions of Dollar for the FIFA.

Hehe...sometimes I'm thinking that's the only reason for having such a tournament.

It's a bit like in trading, as long as we are all watching we are making the market.
