    Props to Ghana for putting away their chances. Their goalie made some big saves as well... I think US soccer took a punch in the gut today, despite that I'm proud of the effort.

    Realistically, this team got about as far as it should. They did not over- or underachieve. The quality is simply not there. Ghana is clearly the better team.

    I guess all the English speaking countries are getting hosed by the refs.

    I agree, that has to be one of the worst calls ever. But was it payback-karma for the Wembley goal?...who knows .

    My oh my, yet another horrible decision by the refs. Tevez was miles and miles in offside position.

    Look, if they are so against "technology" why don't they put a goal judge behind the goal like we have in hockey!? Something needs to be done. Both of those decisions today changed the whole outcome of the game!!!

    This is my first and most likely last World Cup (watching) because of the bad BAD calls by the ref's.

    I'm not going to invest into a sport that allows their officials free range on calls without being challenged by video replays. I watched two matches, and both were dumb due to calls. I mean, Mexico and England might had still lost, but I believe the calls changed the outcome of the games.

    FiFA is not doing a good job of gaining my interest and support at all. Are all World Cups this bad?!?! Because if this is high end soccer, it's not what I thought it would be at all.

    The worst I've ever seen.

    As Pagliacci said this is some of the worst officiating I have ever seen in any sport. While I am a soccer fan I have simply lost interest in this tournament because of the officiating. I swear that in most of the matches that I have watched there has been at least one inexcusably bad call(Though I don't recall a bad on in the U.S. loss to Ghana. A lot of close ones, but that one seemed like a quality match minus the loss).

    Today's games were a joke and I'm ashamed of soccer. The inanity of having NO goal judge AND no video replay of any sort is absolutely careless. It ruins the integrity of the sport.

    And that is my little rant. Don't get me started about the flopping.

    Easy there, fellas, easy there... The officiating was bad, no doubt about it. But I think some of you guys get a little bit too edgy here.

    "To err is human" and until we can replace the ref with a robot, blown calls are part of the game...it happens and it's not exclusive to soccer...remember a Jim Joyce, anyone? That's right, no video replay beyond homeruns in the most popular sport in the US. Careless? No integrity? I don't think so...

    And besides, a goal judge in soccer would be useless 98% of the time. There's hardly a decision to make whether the ball crossed the line or not. Neither does he prevent blown offside calls.
    Video replay? That's another issue. Given the fact that soccer players complain about nearly everything in the game, I think we would end up with 120+ minutes games, as everybody would bitch endlessly about the calls...but that's just my two cents.
