I've been at work. Did Colombia get jobbed or did they deserve to lose?

I saw the two goals scored by Brasil and they were both just huge mistakes by Colombia so it seems they deserved the loss but I did not see the game.

It's not so much that they were robbed by by FIFA, but they were mugged by Brazil and the ref let it happen.

thoroughly enjoyed the Brazil/Colombia game. The ref was lose with the control of the game. Brazil should have gotten a few yellows. JROD (I think) commits his first foul and gets a yellow and Brazil scores off the free kick. that was BS. Should have been expected though that was the Ref that refused to throw out Diego Godin in the England/Uruguay game.
Colombia had no structure and was playing a very entertaining loose game. Anyone know Neymar status. That didn't look like he was faking in it. He caught a knee square in the small of the back at full speed.

The fix was WAY in. But

Germany is going to choke hold beatdown Brazil without Thiago Silva and Neymar

As much faking and acting as Neymar has done...I don't have a problem with his injury.

I watched the replay a few times. JRod never touched Hulk. No way that was a foul, much less a yellow. Ref was horrible in this game. He called over 40 fouls before he issued a yellow card. The card he issued to Rodriguez was a complete joke and Brazil scored on the free kick.

Germany will DESTROY Brazil (without Silva and Neymar). They play such beautiful soccer. I love their passing and dream that we can pass like that one day.

You have got to be kidding me. The kid is a star. 22 years old. He weighs a whopping 140 lbs. But you don't have a problem with him getting his vertebra broken because he's taken some dives, like nearly every player that has played at his level has done at some point in their career. I have not watched a football match in the last 20 years without seeing at least one person take a dive. Usually it's three or four a game.

I'm not condoning diving, but until the rules are changed to do something about it, I don't blame the players doing it. If they get caught they can get a yellow or red. So, they do it knowing all to well there could be consequences. Don't blame the players. They get rewarded more times than not.

How about Robben? You want him to get his neck broken because of all the silly dives he's been taking to give his team an edge?

I could say it, if that were the case, but it's not. Colombia had plenty of opportunities to win the game. Brasil was the better team. Hell, the ref didn't have to give Colombia a PK with 15 minutes to go. They scored, made it a one goal match and Colombia nearly got the ball in the net for an equalizer more than once after that. If that game went to extra time, either team could have won.

A few questionable calls, but no fix was on.

I thought it was a foul with the way he was calling the game but yeah it was a joke of a yellow. I agree with out Silva and neymar Germany should crush them. Silva is a more important loss for that 1 game though

At the levels that I would coach at, I would suspend my players for the next game if I caught them diving. it's what My coach did and we won 4 straight regional championships and 3 state championships (2 back to back). Diving doesn't belong in the game and slackass referees and weakass FIFA don't have the backbone to call BS when they see it.

The rules need to be changed, but I absolutely blame the players for exploiting it. I have no sympathy for people with THAT much talent who dive with regularity.

Robben
Ronaldo
Neymar is rapidly developing that reputation

Even Dempsey dives too often for my liking as tough as he can be.

There's no room for it and it's a large reason why the sport gets so little respect here in the U.S. It's cheating at worst and unsportsmanlike at best. No respect for anyone who does it.

There needs to be an ongoing review of ALL awarded free kicks, penalties and if there was no contact--instant yellow card. If, for example that tap to the top of the head and the player grabs his face...instant yellow card.

I'm a purist about this stuff and while yeah sucks he's now injured, I believe in karma.



I also yelled out "NO DIVING IN SHALLOW GRASS"...since I'm a former lifeguard

i dont wish injury on athletes, but my take is that if youre cheating, doing something dirty, or stupid and get injured in the process then maybe it will teach you a lesson. not that this situation with neymar is applicable. im not rooting for brazil, but it sucks for the competition that he wont be around.

OKay, to clarify what I meant in that initial statement since I was on my phone.

The amount of diving without just cause frustrates opponents, so yeah when they go for legal tackles they will go in a little more recklessly because if they ssume that at ANY contact you're going to ground writhing like this punk does...I'm going to make sure I hit you hard...not with intention to hurt you but with the intention to let you know, roll if you want I'm bring some pain.
