hahaha that guy that did the US/Italy fiasco is gone, just like I said he'd be. The English Ref who gave a guy 3 yellow cards accidently was sent home as well.

One of the assistant refs is a Canadian. he's ref'ed two world cups. I think that's pretty cool. although some ask why he's allowed to ref considering we dont have a soccer team.

accidentally? How do you accidentally give 3 yellow cards? That ref sounded like he knew what he was doing...that was no accident.

They all suck, but I guess you can't send them all off.

Graham Poll admitted the fuck up and has stated he will never referee an international tournament again because as he put it "the buck stops with him". One thing you can say about the guy is that he isnt a cheat and has been a top referee for quite a few years.

Incidentally, I believe the fuck up may have something to do with two players called Simic and Simunic. Not an acceptable fuck up but possibly an understandable one.
