Other Canadians today include the equestrian team (sorry, Ian Miller is 65 , the real athletes in this event are the horses - why do we have equestrian events and no rugby?); synchronized swimming (duets); and Mary Spencer (boxing)
Yeah, that was a pretty brutal series of calls by the ref. Heartbreaking loss for Team Canada. Hard to tell if the ref was just being stupid or if they were intentionally trying to help the USA win. Corruption and soccer tend to go hand in hand unfortunately. The Canadian women played their hearts out and it was a very entertaining game. FIFA is apparently looking into the comments made by the Canadian players and coach after and may levy sanctions against them. Which would add insult to injury. Hopefully they can put it behind them and take the bronze.wprager wrote:Man, Canada is getting jobbed on the soccer pitch. Shades of Salt Lake City, again.

FIFA in general has an issue with corruption and match fixing. So, it's laughable that FIFA are investigating this. I would not expect them to look at the ref or anything. No faith in that system at all. It's corrupt to the bone.wprager wrote:I'd like FIFA to investigate the referee's conduct.
