Screwing of Socceroos the latest World Cup judging farce, but Australian loss guarantees Webb win
A quick lesson to my many fellow Americans who don’t follow soccer:
In World Cup play, it’s hard to get a penalty called, which is as it should be. However, in the final 10 seconds of injury time in a tie game, a defender needs to use a weapon of some sort to stop an offensive player in order to earn a penalty. Say, a wooden board with the business end of a nail sticking out of it. Or a gun. Then, and only then, can you call a penalty.
Nonetheless, the monstrous screwing Australia received by the ref against Italy should only help them as a people in the long run. Look for Karrie Webb to win the U.S. Women’s Open, as karma will help make things right.
Now, let’s all lift one for the Socceroos, and pray a pox on the home of the ref who screwed them.
