As a long time CanWNT I'm very glad that so many here and across the nation have gotten behind this team. I'm so incredibly proud of the team for the performance they put out today. Although these games aren't over yet, it needs to be said that we can't let this just die off after the Bronze Medal game. Please keep supporting them whether it's watching their games on TV or going out to the games (especially with 2015 WWC coming to Canada).
So, you guys think that the number #1 team in Women's soccer paid off the ref for fear of losing to Canada? Yeah, that sounds rational.
Anyways, changing the subject slightly... I noticed there were a lot of attractive women on the US and a couple for Canada. Have there been bikini team shots or anything sexy like that released of the teams?
I don't think the ref was paid off by the states to favour them...especially when there were blown calls BOTH WAYS. However, I wouldn't be surprised if the ref had been approached beforehand and told that the USA winning would be the preferred outcome. Unfortunately the USA scored on a controversial call, but I won't hold it against them. I have a lot of respect for players like Wambach, Rapinoe and Morgan...and if we're going to lose, I'd rather us have lost to the best.
Edit: sigh...I say I don't think the ref was paid off....maybe it's more I just don't want to BELIEVE that this sport...this women's game that I loved for so long could be so tainted.
