The win by France over Ireland in the do or die world cup qualifier has just about summed up the problems with soccer today. No honor, too many cheaters and divers, poor refereeing, the lack of tv replays, jumped up players who don’t play for the shirt and lack pride; too many moaners, big games decided by controversy rather than brilliant football. Unless something is done football will become a more predictable and pointless sport. Ireland will go down among the many football teams that have been robbed by elementary refereeing decisions. Even our own Lynn Fighting Knights fell victim to the refs throughout the entire season. Apart from the ref in the France-Ireland game, Thiery Henry’s act of blatant cheating should go down as one of the worst plays ever in the history of sport. Shame on you Ti ti!!! I feel sorry for all the Irish people and the neutral football fans that were exposed to such shameful play and officiating.
