One might think FIFA would entertain a long-overdue instant replay system as a potential solution to the problem of constant blown calls by referees. As it turns out, replay is involved, but only because FIFA’s actual plan is to censor replays on stadium scoreboards.
As replays–shown time and time again–have documented countless World Cup refereeing errors, it has become almost indisputable that the refereeing in this year’s World Cup has been largely inadequate. FIFA, however, begs to differ.
The (inadvertent) theme of today’s World Cup action? Teams and individuals being knocked out of the tournament. You’ve heard that Koman Coulibaly might be gone, but now the nation of Cameroon and French player Nicolas Anelka definitely are.
Controversial USA – Slovenia referee Koman Coulibaly will be facing an “expedited performance review” from FIFA, and may be excluded from the rest of the World Cup. This seems like the best thing for everybody.
Already-infamous U.S.A.-Slovenia referee Koman Coulibaly was compared at times today to baseball umpire Jim Joyce, who cost the Detroit Tigers’ Armando Galarraga a perfect game earlier this month. A natural comparison, but not an apt one.
Just over an hour after a controversial end to the United States-Slovenia game, FIFA’s legal squad has already on the record regarding how it is stepping up its detail on any potential match fixing in the next round of games.
