Your constant level of retard doesn't allow you to rant on these boards. So don't do it again, okay honey chops?

Shut the fuck up, or answer why you think that Celtic and Sporting won't draw as much as an NCAA game at Fenway.


I didn't say they won't draw as much as an NCAA game. I said I would personally rather see a women's NCAA game if UNC/BC/Stanford were 2 of the 3 teams, and that it won't draw as well as Old Firm.

I've admittedly never been to Fall River or New Bedford, so please forgive me for underestimating the ticket-buying ability of Portuguese-Americans regarding a team with few if any international stars. I've been corrected.

Just like he wasn't when Villa scored most of his goals in Euro08, even though Villa's goals were used as evidence that Cesc was awesomepower.

It's all very well to applaud Chile's attacking play but they are very undisciplined in this game and will be lucky to keep 11 on the pitch at this rate. It seems they've gone out there too wound-up to begin with.

edit for grammar


I didn't expect to be proved right within 5 minutes. Lack of experience at the highest level. Nio lack of skill, mind, just mental attitude.

Spain had a counter attack. Torres was attempting to go wide to the right side for the feed to the far post. There was incidental contact and Torres did that typical "I'm shot" flop. Spain scores the goal, the Chilean defender who accidentally bumped Torres' back foot got his second yellow. It was an absolutely hideous call.

Disappointed with Chile so far. Poor decisions and mental lapses won't get you far against a superior team. I think Brazil will annihilate Chile either way.

For some reason the Italian flopping bothers me more than the Spanish flopping.
Maybe we should do a poll on which side is the most annoying at flopping.

I get that people think this stuff is particularly Italian, but it seems much more pervasive to me. The US were eliminated last time on a penalty awarded for a flop much worse than what we just saw — which I'd say was a worse call than it was a flop — by a Ghanaian.

A Portuguese was given a card for a flop today, I believe.

The game has gotten way too fast for a single referee. FIFA needs to consider a two-ref system. The red should be given out to a 3rd yellow. There are a lot of things FIFA can do to stop this non-sense.

I kid you not, that goal from Millar flew in just as I took my first sip of a nice Chilean Merlot. If that statistic keeps up, the final score should be about 2-45
