Women's Soccer: The only sport that has worse reffing then professional wrestling.... and today's game showed that. I feel really bad for the Canadians, they played so well too.

Don't forget we were in the game until the very end. Failure to clear the ball from our side of the field led to the game-winning goal. Our defenders should have just kicked the ball out and provided some distance rather than head it straight upward twice. That's the soccer equivalent of not clearing the defensive zone in the final minute of the match.

Oh well. It was a valiant effort by Team Canada, and an outstanding performance by Sinclair. Indecisiveness from the Canadian players, a few major miscues, and some shady officiating led to the end result.

CTV said the reason for the free kick leading to the tying goal by the US was due to the Canadian goaltender holding the ball too long.

Well, I seen a lot of soccer and that seems to be a rare call. I can't remember if I ever seen such a call. How about you guys, does this happen often?

No chance. The US didn't have a shot on net at half, our defence was really solid until they started to tire out.

We shot ourselves in one foot on the first goal, and the ref shot us in the other on the 3rd, but overall we deserve to be playing for gold.

This one hurts a lot.

This game shouldn't have gone to extra time at all. Brutal calls by the refs and its impossible not to question their integrity. Either way, our girls played with HEART till the very end and Sinclair man... not enough phenomenal things can be said about her. Her hearts as big as Canada.

What a way we've come though... everyone involved with this Canadian womens team should be proud of their valiant effort. This team Canada showcased women's soccer at a world class level and they deserved a better fate.

Go Japan!

Really heartbreaking loss for Canada. But my god did Sinclair come to play, would've really liked to see her with a gold metal.

Yes the reffing was terrible, but I did anyone else see how little Canada seemed to be talking out there? They always seemed to give up the ball far too early

Clearly Canada needs to watch video of the Americans and how quick they get the ball down the field. Seems Canada took twice as long to cover the same distance. It's hard though, the US has the NCAA which grooms and prepares girls better for professional life.

Very too bad. I really feel for Team Canada, especialy Christine Sinclair. Yes it's a team game, but what a performence she had today. You really hope she can do it again for a Bronze medal, it would be absolutely heartbreaking now for them to leave without a medal.

Spectacular game. Devastating result.

Reffing was disgusting and Sinclair is a hero.

Hoping our Canadian women will have that bronze medal around their necks come Thursday!

Officiating was nowhere near as bad as Canada v USA in women's hockey in Salt Lake City.

I've never been a soccer fan at all, but I've always wondered if I would be more into it if Canada was good(Men's team). I think I know my answer now after watching the Womens team.

Man it's really too bad Sinclair isn't going to get chance to play for gold. After all she has done for Canada and her entire career I really hope she gets at least a medal. c

Canadian players think it was fixed. Looked at my DVR Solo held the ball for 10 seconds 3 times, and nothing was called. Minuted before the US PK a ball hit an US players arm 10 feet away from the ref, and it was not called. Her arm was outsider her body when the ball hit it, the Canadians players arm was with in her body, most refs would not call that, let alone a free kick (first time ever in Olympic history) in the PK area.

How can I disagree with them, with all these facts? It LOOKED fixed.
